Wednesday’s trade was another “slog” through the mud so to speak. While upside was created in both the NQ and the ES it was not achieved easily. I attempt to attach some labeling to the NQ’s wave 5 but need to include that it is almost abnormal from the beginning of the move. I leave open all possibilities and presenting the count with a “not held” statement. The ES faired a bit better and continues to trace out a “cleaner” 5th wave up. Overall expectations remain for the markets to move up and complete the Intermediate “C” waves and all subordinate Minor and minute degrees as well as the Primary B wave countertrend rallies.
