NVIDIA Corporation (NVDA) has had a nice boost higher, with price now re-testing the high from earlier this month. It had a nice "stick save" following its drop on earnings. Target for wave (iii) of circle wave iii remains at the 100% extension, which is roughly 299. So if the stock gets a nice breakout and follow-through, that's the target as long as price holds above the August low here as wave (ii).
CenturyLink, Inc. (CTL) saw a strong drop today. We'd posted that price had fulfilled our expected target for circle wave iii of 3, so this drop is cooperating with expectations for a pullback next as wave iv of 3. That fourth wave should find support between the two fibs at 22.17 and 20.91 in order to turn back up and follow through towards 25.85 next as wave v of 3.
A lot of oil stocks saw a decent upside today. In the Energy Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLE) the bounce is still within the limits of being a 4th wave within an ending diagonal (c) wave to allow for one more lower low as the 5th before that turns back up. But if that's going to occur, the XLE should turn down soon in that 5th wave. The first indication to me that a bottom is in place will be a break back above the 50 dma at 75.25. If it can clear that on a sustained move, it's going to be the initial indication of the start of circle wave c of 3 towards 87.50, a new high on the daily chart.
Finally, iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (EEM) is getting a nice move higher, starting to put some distance between that lower low it saw earlier this month. It's had three waves up off that low so far. We want to see a micro 4th and 5th fill out to give us five up. That would break it above the prior July high and confirm a bottom in place as a potential start of a 5th wave heading to new highs again, perhaps allowing the EEM to see some outperformance in comparison to US markets going into the end of the year.

Here is an End of the Year THANK YOU, Avi and EWT staff! I joined EWT this year in April, and was really despondent in how my retirement plans and trading account had been performing. I have been trading commodities and stocks for 30 years, and could never keep what I would make in the market. Never. Always gave it all back, and then some. The desire of my heart was to trade for a living, and finally, after 30 years, I can see this as a possibility! I switched to a self-directed 401K at work, and started trading a personal account with you all in April. My accounts are up 320% since April thanks to you! Until then, I was looking at possibly not being able to retire for a long time, but not now. I never knew when to get out of a position. I was always wrong. If I hung on it went down. If I closed out the position, it went up. I was ALWAYS wrong...so frustrated. I owe my success all to you, Avi, and EWT, and the EWT members. SO from the bottom of my heart...THANKS so much. I really appreciate you all!! I have tears of happiness because of you all. HAPPY NEW YEAR, and happy trading in 2021. I am really looking forward to it, for once!

What I love about EW is you know when things go wrong and you know when to get out of a position at minimal damage...it has helped so much in my RR work

The relief of EWT philosophy on investing has been such a gift (besides being extremely profitable) that I have to say this is the most enjoyable service offered anywhere on the internet and probably the best investment I have ever made. Thanks Avi.

Avi et al, this site is amazing! I have been dabbling in trading for several years and recently discovered EWT. With your help (including the great support staff) and all the patrons, my success rate has improved tremendously. I am a conservative trader and rarely more than 60% invested but this year with EWT's help I have increased my trading account by 164% YTD. I am humbled and very grateful for all the members that freely share their insights with the goal of helping others. Thank you all.

“Lyn Alden [is] by far the top emerging macro analyst from 2020. Incredible addition to the EWT team.

My 401K money has been protected during this, and I'm making money in little chunks in my trading accounts. And that is all thanks to Avi, HD, Garrett, Zac, and so many great members here. Sincerely, my account and my family say a huge THANK YOU to you all.

After this week's action and watching how Avi & company nailed the piss out of so many moves, you can't argue with me anymore about the efficacy of EW. . . Just amazing to have a methodology that works so well PLUS the guidance from Avi.

I had been trading for 25 years when I joined this sight. I had a lot of ups. And a lot of downs. But I have been here almost 3 years and learned so much that I am having a lot of ups and not so much downs; less risk, more reward. This is not to brag, but to pay tribute to the great team of analysts, and great members here.
