02/19/2014: Follow up ( I am out)

I did not like yesterday´s shooting star, nor today´s failure to hold above the 200 dma. 5 minutes before the FED minutes release I raised the stop at 50 which was filled. So I am out at breakeven

Entry Date (02/14/14); Long 49.95; Stop 50

Entry Date (02/14/14); Long 49.95; Stop 49,25; Target 51

Reasons: Tactical short-term trade based upon the internal structure of the current bounce and the scenario of a pullback of the equity market

TLT Brief Elliott Wave analysis:

The decline from the February 3 high, so far, has unfolded a 3-wave down leg (Corrective decline), therefore I am assuming that the advance from the December 31 low to the February 3 high can be the wave (A) of a potential Zig Zag up, hence the current pullback should be the wave (B).

On February 12 the Hammer candlestick followed by a gap up are suggesting a probable short-term pause within a larger corrective wave (B) pattern that could bottom in the area of the 50 dma (The MACD has a bearish cross favoring a larger wave (B) correction).

If a short-term bottom is in place the current countertrend rebound can reach the resistance zone located in the range 107.22-107.38 (The 200 dma should prevent further follow-through in a countertrend bounce)

TLT DAILY

In the 60 min chart below we can see that the internal structure of the rebound from the February 12 low is suggesting probable that at least a Zig Zag up is underway.

If 106.27 holds the equality extension target is located at 107.38 (Coinciding with the 200 dma)

TLT 60 MIN

Last Friday I have opened a long position in TMF at 49.95 with a stop at 49.25 (Hopefully tomorrow I will raise it to 49.60)

If the upward Zig Zag pans out the equality extension target is located at 51.
