Elliott Wave Update ~ 16 January 2019

As was posted, the wave count has problems for the bearish overall case. Waves 1 and 4 overlap and the proposed wave 3 down has ugly internal structures for a supposed impulse wave. This need not be bothered too much as long as we get one more push down very soon to a lower low to create an overall 5 wave impulse verifying that the overall direction is now down for the longer term. However, the market has yet to cooperate for the bearish overall count.
So what would the overall count be since the 2009 low if we had eventual higher market highs? I present the count below. This still is a valid count (and in some ways a better count than with the market top occurring in 2018) and follows all the rules and guidelines of Elliott Wave Theory. Note the alternation between corresponding corrective waves:

Waves 2 and 4 (blue) of (1) alternate in form from zig-zag to flat.
Waves (2) and (4) (red) alternate in form from flat to zig-zag.
Waves 2 and 4 (blue) of (3) (red) alternate in form from flat to zig-zag.
Waves [ii] and [iv] (green) of 5 of (3) alternate in form from flat to triangle.
Bottom line: We need a market downturn very fast to lower lows for the bearish case to bear fruit as presented in the top chart. Unless and until that happens we must be vigilant for a bullish count toward higher highs presented in the lower chart.
