Wow! I am not sure where to begin. What Donald Trump has done is nothing to short of spectacular and for that, I commend his political genius. For someone who has never run for any office to win a presidential election is highly improbable, and for someone who has said so many bad things during a campaign is actually incredible. I hope he will now leave his grudges behind and start working on making things better. I am happy I will be getting a nice tax cut and I hope he will cut the fat in government and get us out of all these international conflicts. At the same time, I hope he will stop bringing out the ugly in America and be more civil now that he is President.
What the market did last night when the news started to break out is equally as unusual and surreal as the Trump presidency. Futures were down more than 100 points when Trump was pulling ahead but at the time of the open prices just followed the bullish count posted yesterday, Validating the count and the bullish short term trend. Which means, the market crashed and rallied on the same exact news! It's one of the most bizarre things I have ever seen in all these years.
Now that the market has clearly put in a 5 wave count in the cash session, the expectation is for the rally to continue after a correction. I normally count after hours but there is no way to count such steep drop without seeing any after effect the day after. So we should see the Trend Average tested soon and then see a leg towards new all-time highs. I will be going long on the retrace.
