The entire 3-top topping process is sloped upwards which is why the final shoulder is a higher high.
It is very likely that the top is in (within a few points)! Take a close look at the daily chart and compare it to the daily chart in my last update. The reason I say the top is, in place, is because the lower turquoise expanding triangle ending diagonal line is exactly aligned now with the lower pink fork line. If you compare this to the previous update, the 2 lines were not lined up. I have not touched the turquoise line from the previous update, and just moved up the top corner of the pink fork line to match the higher high in the last session.
I hear people say all the time how the market is not "precise", or can't be "timed". The market behaves in ways that are very complex, and it takes considerable time and effort to figure out the intricate patterns. Yet it can be done.
Especially now, the most common complaint of the market is that the Fed has distorted prices. Manipulated or not, the market is currently trading with incredible precision and that means we can still identify the turning points. The evidence is clearly shown in the way the pink and turquoise lines match up on the daily chart. The geometry of two different chart patterns is matching up nearly perfectly over many months time.
Some choppy sideways trading might be in order to finish off the shoulder, but I do expect that the high is in. The market is vulnerable to an extreme selloff now since the topping pattern is basically complete.
