General Electric Co. down

On the 1-hour chart of General Electric’s shares we have something that looks like a perfect Elliott Wave 5-3 cycle. Prices fell impulsively from 27.96 to 24.30.

Siemens AG to the south

Siemens AG’s shares are looking bearish on the 1-hour chart. A 10 $ drop-off in five waves from 101 to 91, followed by a 3-wave a-b-c zig-zag would have been enough to send prices down again. However, corrections seldom are so simple. It seems that we are currently in wave Y up, which should make a…
