SP500 : End of the rally

The previous count i had for the sp500 is no longer valid, so here is the new count. There are still other counts possible but looking at the MacD we can see a clear bearish divergence. In this count wave (C) is 61.8% of wave (A), a classic flat pattern with wave C as an ending diagonal. The alternative is that the max price level for wave 5 of the ending diagonal at 1554.05 gets broken, turning the ending diagonal into a double three combination. In other words, wave 1 becomes wave W, wave 3 and 5 becomes wave Y.

Xau/Usd : Still in a downtrend

In the previous xau/usd ( or Gold ) post, price was at the high of the channel. Since then price has come down nicely, but has done so in 3 waves which is corrective. This means that price is most likely in a wave Y, the third leg in a double three combination.  The 3 waves down from the wave X top are finished and price had a small rally which is also corrective. It is possible that this countertrend rally is allready finished, since we are in a strong downtrend, but it could transform into a bigger corrective pattern ( watch the alternative on the chart ).
