if you post a screenshot of your chart you'll be able to get better feedback from other futures.io (formerly BMT) members

Thanks for your hint. But I doubt that this is doable via iPad and often I am away from home.

I want to emphasize, that my main approach is trading with cycles. I am not mainly trading charts. People who are interested in watching that kind of approach in practice, are welcome. People mainly looking for charts: There are better threads for you at futures.io (formerly BMT) for sure.

My reasons: From my cycle knowledge I am expecting an SPX bottom between Aug 26 to Aug 30. From my wave knowledge, I was regarding the area as an potential bottom as well. We are above the daily SPX Kumo and were just testing the weekly Kijun and the 20 week EMA. I am a big fan of using the weekly Ichimoku Chart for the big picture.

Looks like cycle bottomed at 8/30. But wave structure still unclear.

I am doubting that we will see impulsive moves in either direction soon. Waves are overlapping and difficult to trade. This assumption is proven wrong, when Mr. Market takes out SPX 1709 on the upside or 1560 on the downside. In between there are a lot of different possible wave patterns. Therefore trading in cautious mode is recommened.

Bad call. Cycles were right and the wave structure was misleading in this case.

Dax was also giving off a big clue, but always we have to see the action and seeing it is still very different to trading it for me. No call is a bad call, just a call.

Guess you are right. Nevertheless I should have let the winner run.
