Assessment and Forecast | Near-Term:

BULLISH PERSPECTIVES:
From its 1700 print low in July of 2010, the Nasdaq-100 has traced out a clear five-wave upward advance. In observing that low as wave ‘b' at the Minor degree, the subsequent five-waves of advance currently nearing completion is then viewed as taking place at the smaller Minuette degree. Once the current Minuette 5th wave is complete, it will mark terminal to Elliott's next fractal one dimension larger, which would cite the noted -1- wave at the Minute dimension of trend. Since October of 2010, our proprietary indicator located in the lower panel of the chart continues to display a firmly bullish trending posture for the NDX.

BEARISH PERSPECTIVES:
An equally viable bearish prospect is observed when calibrating the July 2010 low as that of a 4th wave terminal at Minor degree. Doing so raises the odds that the current five-wave advance is nearing a fifth-wave-end rather than a first-wave-start to its Minute degree wave sequence. This rather bearishly implies that the current advance will end a completed five-wave Minor degree structure from the bear market lows registered in 2008-2009. Bearish momentum divergences persist against the recent succession of fresh print highs posted in the Nasdaq-100.
