The chart below suggests the maximum wave 5 of (5) of  can go is 23,780. However the shorter wave counts do not align with this higher number. If the market does go that high, then the squiggle counts (last 2 charts) are incorrect.
However shorter wave charts suggests the "right look" is occurring right about now. The next 2 charts show how Minor 5 may be a quick burst with a (v) of [v] of 5 as an extended fifth wave. Since wave [iii] is not much longer than wave [I], we can expect wave [v] to be the extended wave of the structure. This is how you would properly count that situation:
Wave labeling color code as follows (note - [brackets] used in lieu of circles for convenience sake) :
Grand Supercycle - BLUE - [I] [II] [III] [IV] [V] - [a] [b] [c] Supercycle - GREEN - (I) (II) (III) (IV) (V) - (a) (b) (c) Cycle - PINK - I II III IV V - a b c Primary - BLACK -      - [A] [B] [C] Intermediate - RED - (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) - (A) (B) (C) Minor - BLUE - 1 2 3 4 5 - A B C Minute - GREEN - [i] [ii][iii] [iv] [v] - [a] [b] [c] Minuette - PINK - (i) (ii)(iii) (iv) (v) - (a) (b) (c) Subminuette - BLACK - i ii iii iv v - a b c Micro - RED -      - [A] [B] [C] Submicro - BLUE - (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) - (A) (B) (C) Miniscule - GREEN - 1 2 3 4 5 - A B C

I like to chart and I am an avid student of Elliott Wave Theory. I combine wave theory with standard technical analysis to track market movements and predict future movements.
