The pattern unfolded by S&P 500 since February’s minimums resembles a terminal pattern. Fibonacci’s relationship between the fifth and third waves of a terminal pattern, as long as there is no failure of the fifth wave, tends to be between 61,8% and 100%, although the most frequent situation is the failure of the fifth rather than the equality of these two waves. The projection of the 61,8% is at 2244.
The correction that follows the exhaustion of terminal patterns is, as we already know, equal to the 100% of the pattern’s price development, in less time than it took to form.

Following Elliott’s classic theory, the most probable relationship between waves one and five of an impulse pattern, like the one S&P 500 is unfolding from 2009’s floor, is equality or 61,8%, that, as we can see in the weekly chart, also projects to 2244.

October is just around the corner, and we know it is a month that usually shows some floors. In the monthly chart we see a bearish divergence with failure at MACD forming. This should be took into account, because although S&P 500 shows a bullish trend, if confirmed, we would see an abrupt fall of S&P 500 to February’s levels.
