Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - January 22

The market rallied today as expected after the European Central Bank announced QE, which in itself was not really a surprise. The price action confirms the double bottom at 1988 and officially turns the Trend Average to the bullish side. In addition, there is  now cross over on the daily MACD, a close over the 50 DMA and a potential Cup and Handle pattern forming that targets 2,140. I expect a pullback to test the Trend Average or the 2038 support level to consolidate gains in the next session or two. But I wouldn't be surprised if the run continues given all the non-stop rallies in the last 3 years after significant bottoms.

I ended up buying oil again given the clear stop level at last week's low. Perhaps it will finally start a counter rally to its 50 DMA.
