Stock Market Top? Sucker's Play

The current rally from November 4 to December 12 (if indeed it was the top) was Minuette Wave Y of Minute Y. Minute Wave Y (of Minor Wave B) was a wxy inverted, irregular and strong bearish flat. Elliott called these B waves or irregular tops. The Trump rally is basically a "sucker's play". The internals of this rally are sick and very selective; the McClellan Summation Index is miles away from confirming it; the Dow Jones Industrials has far exceeded the SPX, which has far exceeded the NASDAQ creating a case of an inter-market bearish divergence. We also have a huge On-Balance-Volume divergence.

A move down into the mid 1900's SPX by February/March 2017 (as noted on the chart below) is my expectation. This would fit a Minor Wave B .618 retracement of Minor Wave A (January 19-July 14) fairly matching the November 2015 – January 2016 drop (due to the raising of rates).

I expect a down-up-down year for 2017, which should end Primary Wave 4. If Primary Wave 4 ends in late 2017 (like I'm thinking), then, the final top should occur somewhere around early 2019. The shallow decline of early November (which should have seen a deep 40 week low) followed by the strong Trump Rally, probably created a fortunate, unexpected delay in the finality of this upcoming, final fifth wave.

Millennial Wave (III?) "since c.a. 1000 C.E." Topping, early 2019?
Grand Super Cycle Wave (V) "since c.a. 1776"; Topping, early 2019?
Super Cycle Wave V "since 1942", Topping, early 2019?
Cycle Wave 5 "since March 2009", Topping, early 2019?
Primary Wave 4 "since late 2014", Rolling over into late 2017?
Intermediate Wave Y "since February 11, 2016", Topping August 2017?
Minor Wave B "since July 14, 2016", Rolling over into March 2017?
Minute Wave Y "since September 12, 2016", Topped December 12, 2016?
Minuette Wave Y "since November 4, 2016", Topped December 12, 2016?
