Monthly Commentary May 13th 2006
The close below 1295 (at 1291 on 5/12/6) indicates that Wave 5 of the uptrend that started at 1179 around the end of October 2005 terminated on 5/5/6 at 1325.  This confirmed that we were right about the previous monthly long position (mentioned in our 5/5/6 Market Perspective) being a poor reward:risk trade.  For an aggressive early position we would be short at the open on 5/15/6 with an initial trailing stop at 1312.  A more conservative approach would be to wait for a close below 1285 as confirmation of the start of Wave A of the correction before entering a position.
Interim Update May 17th 2006
As anticipated on May 13th 2006, the S&P 500 moved down significantly to confirm the start of Wave A of a correction.  The close of 1270 today would be an excellent place to add to the short position we established on 5/15/6, or to initiate one if you didn't enter then but waited for the given confirmation (of a close below 1285).  The current trailing stop for this new position would be at 1297.

Yearly Commentary May 13th 2006

On the yearly chart we are still long on 5/8/6 with a price target of 1388 and an initial trailing stop at 1233.
