[EOD] Stocks -
First, some technical specifics. There's is a valid way to count a five-up from the recent low to yesterday's high (in cash as well as in futures), albeit a bit forced. The implication is that all three proposed top primary counts (1 bullish, 2 bearish,see below) survive.
Chart 1 (SPX) and Chart 2 (INDU) present the squiggle count.
(gray) five-up, with a LD wave 1 whose wave [i] is also an LD - LD-squared.
(blue) w-x-y flat-like structure.
The proposed gray five-up count is more obvious in INDU. Note also the overlapping waves in INDU during the sell-off.
Given the above , the top primary counts are shown in Chart 3 and Chart 4. See Twist and Turn (9/23/11) for discussion.
