Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - May 17

Well, if there was any questions as to why I was avoiding longs in this market, today is why.

Whether or not there will be one more leg to new highs after the correction is open to debate but for all intent and purposes, the entire structure that formed in 2009 has enough waves to call itself done. And as much as Trump is in the news, the sell-off today was destined to happen, he is just the perfect excuse.
