Wednesday, 5/16/12 update

The two possibilities for gold discussed in the May 8 update have been narrowed down to one, and that is that a Major W4 correction from last year's Major W3 high is still in progress.  This count has a double zig-zag forming from that Major W3 top with the second of those zig-zags starting at the high of Feb 28.  Further, the action since Feb 28 has already formed the A and B legs of the structure with the C (and thus final) leg in progress since May 1.  However, at this point the internal structure of this C wave appears to indicate that it has a distance to yet travel:

Please note that the projected market path represented by the red dotted lines is conceptual only, it is not intended as a prediction of price targets.  What it is saying is that when applying Elliott rules to the pattern it appears that Minute W3 (green numbers) from the May 1 high has not yet concluded, and when that happens there still will be a Minute W4 & W5 necessary to complete the pattern.
Here's what it looks like from a longer term perspective, 1st chart is 4 hour bars and 2nd is daily:

So how to to determine the conclusion of Minor C, Intermediate Y & Major W4?  A break up out of the channel established from the May 1 high would be a very good indicator of that bottom either being achieved or close at hand.

  1. Does today's action indicate the break up out the channel? Does it indicate the Major W4 is done?
