Main Daily Wave Count
For the long term, this count expects that primary wave B maroon is complete and that primary wave C maroon is unfolding towards the downside likely as an ending diagonal.
Within wave C maroon intermediate waves (1) and (2) black are complete and intermediate wave (3) black is underway.
Wave (2) black unfolded as a double zigzag labeled waves W, X and Y blue.
Wave W blue unfolded as a zigzag labeled waves a, b and c pink with wave c pink unfolding as an impulse labeled waves (i) through (v) green.
Wave Y blue unfolded as a zigzag labeled waves a, b and c pink with wave a pink unfolding as an impulse labeled waves (i) through (v) green.
It is worth noting that wave (v) green was a truncated fifth wave.
Wave (3) black is unfolding as a zigzag labeled waves A, X and C blue with waves A blue complete and wave B blue is at its early stages.
Wave A blue within wave (3) black unfolded as a leading diagonal labeled i through v pink.
This count will be confirmed by movement above 1.2928.
At 1.3155 wave B blue would have traveled 0.382 times the length of wave A blue. Then at 1.3388 wave B blue would have reached 50 % of the length of wave A blue.
This count would be invalidated by movement below 1.2400 as within wave B blue no B wave may retrace more than 100 % of its A wave.
Ultimately, wave (3) black should push below the 1.1790 swing low. We want to see more price action before calculating short-term targets.
