Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - April 16

The market didn't do much today other than reset some of its short term overbought oscillators. I broke down the recent bullish waves and they are 5 count waves, so my assumption is the market is consolidating before launching a stronger bullish wave as soon as tomorrow. The correction could continue but the downside limit is 2083.24, price action under support would indicate more selling ahead. But as I speculated a few days ago, the break out in oil is lending support to the market so continued strength in oil will help stocks reach new highs. And apparently, it's no longer speculation but one of current themes:

Obviously, higher oil prices is not better for our economy but Wall Street needs an excuse. Maybe we might just have another "Sell in May" event this year after there are no more excuses left to rally. Hopefully, I will be picking up the VXX I sold last week (which is down almost 10% from when I sold it already).
