Since Donald Trump was elected as POTUS we have seen what the media is calling the “Trump rally” or “Trump effect”. No matter how you describe it, the facts are that rail road stocks have been a tear recently, once such stock that I am tracking is Norfolk Southern Corp (NSC).

This has a great looking pattern and I suspected its working an impulse wave, so we want to see 5 waves from the Feb 2016 lows before we turn bearish, although I do think its close to end wave 3, so some caution from the bulls is needed. Ideally a minor new high is seen followed a swift reversal back under 116.76, that should favor more weakness and suggest a correction for wave 4 is underway. A large 3 wave pullback towards 105.00 – 107.00 is a good area to end wave 4 and find buyers again to setup for a rally back to new all time highs for wave 5.

So if you own this stock it maybe prudent to put protective stops at 116.76. Overall I still favor more upside whilst its above 95.00 and favor a pullback in 3 waves to around 105.00 is likely a large 4th wave of an impulse wave that started from the Feb 2016 lows

Do you have a stock that you want analyzing? Then why not purchase an Elliott Wave Report, it may just save you a small fortune.
