Fifth Wave?

Yesterday's breakout in the major indices brings into view the all time highs on the S&P 500 and the DJIA. As stocks continue to rally through new 52 week highs towards all time highs, investors should keep in mind that this is the third major multi-month push in the bull market that began in 2008. In terms of Elliot Wave Theory this would be the fifth and presumably final wave of the cycle. There's a very good chance that we will push up to those all time highs soon, testing the highs of the 2000 and 2007 bull market peaks (at ~1500 on S&P). While everything is 100% bullish in the short term, this fifth wave is likely going to be the end of the recent secular bull market. The direction is higher for now but I feel fairly confident that sometime later this year deflation will rear is ugly head. Be prepared.
