$SPX - Market Analysis for Aug 9th, 2018

The SPX is finally starting to crack some support in order to signal a local top in place. As a reminder of my stance, I am looking for either a corrective pullback as wave ii of (c) under the blue count targeting 2838 - 2822 before turning back up toward a new ATH in wave iii of (c). As an alternative if that upper support region does not hold, a retest of the August low in the red alt (b)-wave, with this recent high being an extension of wave (a) of iii off the June low.
