A-B-C or 1-2-3.
We play this song and dance routine as long as we are traders. For as long as it works most of the time with at least 65% probability it is a continuation trend for either the 2-nd or the 4-th wave of a potential 1-2-3-4-5 wavecount (either to the upside or the downside).

Those were from yesterday's Comments. We gap up today because DAX rallied overnight and the US futures market made a minute i-ii-iii-iv-v rally overnight before the open.
YM clearly shows that the highest probability is an A-B-C instead of a 1-2-3. Thus this trade is a high-confidence trade. But we are not out of the woods yet. As indicated on the YM chart; a prerequisite must be met first before confidence factor can reach 80%.
As I have been repeating for the past few months; finding a high-confidence wavecount on the Daily Chart from it's June 4th bottom is extremely hard. This potential new A-B-C further muddied the ground as additional possible wavecounts can be added including a possible rally toward 1545 Nominal Target with Extended 1612 Target initially speculated last July and modified in August for a Conservative Target Range of 1527 to 1587:
Primary Objective is again to take some profits and protect remaining positions from significant paper profit drawdown(s) just-in-case market suddenly reverses to the downside. Additional objective is to find the final top run in order to maximize profits on remaining long positions.
Thus I will be selling 1/3 SSO positions at or near the weekly chart Fibonacci Confluence Resistances of 1481/83. Then sell the other 1/3 at or near the 1492 v'-th Nominal Target. Will hold the last 1/3 as a 'Free Trade'.
* I bought back the SSO sold last Friday and added a little more yesterday.
* The AAPL was a losing trade as the trailing stops triggered. Bought AAPL again yesterday for potential $715 Upside Target. The
* INTC trade trailing stops triggered for tiny profits and I bought it back yesterday at $21.72 v-th wave of C-wave Nominal Target. Stop loss is now below $21.25 Maximum Allowed Run Rate.
