This has caused so much excitement and relief amongst long-term Bulls, and others who have been bag holders, as they are renewed in their prospects of reducing losses and salvaging self-confidence.
In my previous charts (since the December 2013 low, and subsequent January high), whilst accepting sharp rallies, I have maintained that we are in a cycle. Initially, it appeared as a possible contracting triangle, though I made a point that it could fail and we may just make a new lower low. That did indeed materialise in April 2014.
At that point, the entire move into the $550 area did not display the signature characteristics of a 5-wave impulsive move of the low. In fact, the entire drop with potential down from January's high appeared to be forming a with a potential target of the $320-$300 zone.
Now, that pattern could have failed. I say could have failed because, if it fails to continue higher and break back below the $425 zone, then that pattern is still ongoing, and $320-$300 would be the least target.
I have shared an alternative to this in the chat a few times and this is what I am now publishing. So, either we will still have the or we'll have a possible "Running Flat" as shown in the chart. Should we see confirmation of this "Running Flat", we progress to the $580-$600 range, which is all of the following:
1. An area with Fib confluence
2. A Structural resistance
3. A top
This pattern could have a final leg down, which would very likely induce overwhelming emotions of despair as it sinks to the ~$200 level.
Again, the $200 zone is measured move target and another Fib confluence. As you all know, I am relatively cautious and, hence, $200 would be good enough for me. However, EW guidelines suggest that upon completion of a cycle, the retracement takes us back to the vicinity of wave 4 (at one cycle degree lower). That, in fact, is in the area of $120!
Now, I know this might be very annoying and incomprehensible to Bulls, and others who follow "Fundamentals" very keenly. I cannot say right now which of these targets will be achieved, but it is sufficient to note that, irrespective of if we reverse at $600 (or even $800), we are in a cycle, and a move of the low does not support a new cycle.
Indeed, you might completely disagree with my analysis, but please do not claim I didn't warn you.

There is a possibility of a minor retrace, but certainly no TA to prove a significant one. The weekly charts are very revealing at this point as per my previously published ideas.
