The news reports from Europe on January 30 said that European stocks took a hit after the release of weaker-than-expected U.S. GDP number for the 4th quarter of 2012.

Yet Elliott wave patterns in the EuroStoxx 50, pan-European index of the continent's 50 largest stocks, are showing that the recent rally has been on its last leg for a while.
 
Notice in the chart below (copied from Elliott Wave International's European Intraday Stocks Specialty Service) how the fifth-wave advance barely mustered the strength to clear the top of the previous wave three.
 
 
That's a sign of an exhausted trend, at least in the short term.
 
The Service editor, Tom Denham, told his subscribers in a January 30 intraday update "favor the downside" in the days ahead -- regardless of what you see in the headlines.

The Elliott Wave Principle is a detailed description of how financial markets behave. The description reveals that mass psychology swings from pessimism to optimism and back in a natural sequence, creating specific Elliott wave patterns in price movements. Each pattern has implications regarding the position of the market within its overall progression, past, present and future. The purpose of Elliott Wave International’s market-oriented publications is to outline the progress of markets in terms of the Wave Principle and to educate interested parties in the successful application of the Wave Principle. While a course of conduct regarding investments can be formulated from such application of the Wave Principle, at no time will Elliott Wave International make specific recommendations for any specific person, and at no time may a reader, caller or viewer be justified in inferring that any such advice is intended. Investing carries risk of losses, and trading futures or options is especially risky because these instruments are highly leveraged, and traders can lose more than their initial margin funds. Information provided by Elliott Wave International is expressed in good faith, but it is not guaranteed. The market service that never makes mistakes does not exist. Long-term success trading or investing in the markets demands recognition of the fact that error and uncertainty are part of any effort to assess future probabilities. Please ask your broker or your advisor to explain all risks to you before making any trading and investing decisions.
