I was appalled yesterday when the S&P finally filled the 2101.49 gap with inverted A/Ds and positive ticks of just 50. Not a typo. Actually, the true number at the moment of the fill was 11, but by the time I actually tweeted it, it had hit 50. It should have been at least 800.
Regardless, the S&P did what it had to do: it closed above the gap and the 2104 volume shelf. It now becomes extremely difficult to count a top in May.
True, there is still the possibility of a head fake to new lows (per yesterday's chart), but it would likely still be corrective and thus another buying opportunity, hopefully without another NYSE "trading glitch" obfuscatory side show.
The preferred count suggests new highs over the next few weeks, then a larger wave four correction.
Here are updated charts, preferred and alternate. The alternate count argues that the smaller wave four is not established yet.
