12:15 pm EST: Here is a quick update on the Russell-2000 (RUT) wave count. It looks pretty far advanced within the PC-C2 wave. The Head and Shoulders topping pattern and 50% Fib Retrace for Cycle 2 (C2) come in around the 856 pivot.

12:30 pm EST: The Russell-2000 price ended at the 50% Fibonacci retrace of 1199.29 for the Primary B (PB) of Cycle 2 (C2) wave and has formed a large Head and Shoulders top pattern with a target of 909.19, which agrees with the 50% Fibonacci retrace for the completion of the C2 wave at the 856 pivot support.

5:05 pm EST: The primary (white/green) count is that wave major -PA-C2 is underway with minor 1 of major  complete at 2063. The minor 2 bounce to a 62%/78% retrace of 2107/2118 is underway. Once minor 2 ends, then minor 3 of major  will head below 2000, where major =1.62* at 1986. Ultimately PA-C2 should reach at least 1954 (62% retrace of the P5-C1 Ending Diagonal) and maybe 1889 (78% retrace of the P5-C1 Ending Diagonal). The primary count remains valid for minor 2 wave below 2133.
The alternate (blue) count is that the Primary 5 (P5) of Cycle 1 (C1) Ending Diagonal (ED) is extending from the recent major -P5-C1 low of 2044. The final wave up for major -P5 is underway and should unfold at a 3-wave, minor A-B-C. Wave minor A reached the 2135 pivot and we just completed a minor B retrace of 78% 2063. Minor C is now underway and should complete major -P5-C1 near the P5 = 0.5*P1 target of 2172. Note: the ending diagonal maximum (i.e. wave  <  < ) for this primary wave count is at 2044 + (2135-1981) = 2198. The alternate (blue) counts remain valid above the recent 2044 low. It will take a break of the 2046 pivot area to confirm the Cycle 1 (C1) top is in place per the primary count.
Have a great weekend !

6:50 pm EST: RUT continues to march higher towards its large (6 year old) Inverse Head and Shoulders (IHS) target of 1370.37, which also agrees with the E-Wave P5 = 0.62*P1 target of 1366.58. There is also smaller (1 year old) IHS with neckline at 1200, head at 1040 and target of 1360, again agreeing two the other two targets listed above for the completion of P5-C1-SCV.

10:30 am EST: The Russell-2000 (RUT) has sold off -10.8% from its 1213.55 high set back in early July 2014. It looks like that was the P3-C1 top and the RUT has been under going a simple major [A]-[B]-[C] Zig-Zag correction for P4-C1. The major [C]=[A] target is 1072.82 and was nearly hit yesterday at 1083.00. Also, the 23% fib retrace of P3-C1 target is 1077.61. So there is a very bullish alternate (blue) count on the RUT that could see the P4-C1 correction bottoming here in early October 2014 and then launch higher in the P5-C1 wave going into the year 2015. The P5-C1 first target is up at the large head and shoulder target are of 1370.37.
If the RUT needs to correct more than the 23% fib retrace for P4-C1, then there is the major [C]=1.62*[A]=1011.74 and the 38% fib retrace at 981.05. This RUT count would align closing the SP-500 primary count correcting to 1801 for P4-C1
I will let you guess what the bullish scenario for the RUT means for the SP-500 wave count here. Tonight I will show it on the charts, as an alternate (blue) count wave possibility.

5-15-14: Looks like wave major [A]-P4 on RUT had some addition work to the downside to complete today hitting a new low 1082.53. The RUT daily chart now looks even better for a strong bounce up the 1142 area for a 50% retrace for major [B]-P4. Today formed a nice long-tail, daily hammer candle the Feb 2014 low. There is positive divergence across the three key indicators for RSI, MACD and Full-Stoch.

5:15 pm EST: In contrast to the RUT daily chart shown on May 9th, the RUT weekly chart shows that the RUT is not likely going to make a new high above 1212 to join SP-500 and DJ-30 in their recent new all-time highs. Both the SP-500 and DJ-30 are the final stages of terminal Ending Diagonal (ED) patterns. Thus, the RUT is more likely forming head and shoulder top that will see P4 decline to the 980 to 950 level this fall. A key indicator here on the RUT weekly chart is the MACD line that is headed below the zero line at steep -45 degree angle.
