John Ehlers Hilbert Sine Wave indicator
We’ve had 10 profitable sine wave crossovers on the long side. Now if we’re at the beginning of a correction down wave this is the first cross over on the short side. The Emini has been in a long uptrend since July which is a classic Elliott wave 3. This wave should end with a downside Elliott wave 4 that will bottom and then turn into a final blow off Elliott wave 5 to the upside. I believe this fourth wave has begun but is being held up by end of year "window dressing" by fund managers. Once into the New Year we should see this fourth wave to the downside proceed.
