Went long for a swing trade at SPX 2575 with a STOP at 2564. Hate to chase the market, but sometimes that's all the market offers.

So lots of stops were triggered with shorts.  All the stops are clearly visible in their system which is designed to take out your stops.   That's why I usually don't use stops and instead use options to hedge..........

Looking for a loss-free, stoploss-free, risk-free way of trading has been an eternal quest of mankind. LOL !

I'm thinking the more probable count here is a B  wave in the SPX, perhaps an expanded flat.

I have a measured move to SPX 2596 (min) - 2606 (max). Let's see if it gets there.

B waves take more time and complexity than A waves. Look at this wave from the 2544 bottom. It's been a slingshot recovery. That's impulsive behaviour.

The only time since 1990 that the S&P 500 was up this much (> 0.75%) and at a new high, with this few advancing vs declining stocks, was November 18, 1999.

Anyone trying to use conventional historical precedents for this market (*hand raised*) is flying blind.
