Assuming this wave (c) will unfold in an Elliott 5-wave fashion, consider the following wave count...
Me like this one. We see typical technical deterioration in formation of wave iv of 3 versus wave ii of 3. This both via RSI (top panel) and MACD (bottom). We see, as well, typical Elliott 3rd wave dynamism in peak technical strength being registered during formation of wave iii of 3.
Presently, negatively diverging RSI (top panel) we see registering since wave 3 peak in early August substantiates probability NASDAQ, near-term, will come under pressure.
The short and sweet is the outlook we have had for some weeks here remains intact. Across all major indexes a 4th wave is seen in the process of forming. Per NASDAQ's Composite Index, this 4th wave is part of 5 waves up from November 2012. Per other major indexes the 4th wave forming is part of 5 waves up from June 2012.
So, we're looking to early next year as being the earliest moment when the lug nuts will be at elevated risk of falling off the market, while there remains no doubt its wreck could be awful.

Analysis centers on the stock market's path of least resistance. Long-term, this drives a simple strategy for safely investing a 401(k) for maximum profit. Intermediate-term, investing with stock index tracking-ETFs (both their long and short varieties) is advanced. Short-term, stock index options occasionally offer extraordinary profit opportunities when the stock market is moving along its projected path.
Nothing is set in stone. Nor is the stock market's path of least resistance always known. More often than not, there are no stock index option positions recommended.
