Spiraldates.com spiral calendar scores for January 2013 showed three high peaks (potential market highs or lows) but the most that can be said is that the first two peaks were roughly inline with pauses in the nearly continuous rise in prices during January. Elliott Wave counts all show the market is close to the end of the rally from March 2009, forming an ending diagonal and hitting resistance in both short and long term trendlines. Sentiment is also at a bullish extreme so we are looking for a significant top, if not in January then in February.
