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.

I worked on trading desks at top investment banks for 10 years, then traded on my own for another 8. I've seen 100s of research from the best analysts in the business. Avi and EWT is the only one I'm willing to pay for right now.

I see the best quants, strategists and technicians the street has and you and your group are amongst the absolute best. My trading desk is floored at turning levels you are able to provide.
CNBC had a stat this morning that over the last 20 years 86% of money managers/hedge funds have underperformed the market. They couldn't figure out why that’s the case given how 'smart' these people are. . . . I know my performance since joining the site has skyrocketed!

I’m convinced, EW theory is THE best way to approach markets for investing/trading. Whether you’re scalping micro moves, day trading swing trading or long term investing, EW always has you covered. Most people have a lens or a way they view the market but how consistent over time is it? For myself I like fractals and have made life changing trades off them. But as my trading days add up [and] the value of EW becomes clearer, especially when coupled with fib #s, I have to give credit to you Avi for this!
