The final leg higher wave (v) ended at $4599.85 high, which completed wave 3 & also the cycle from 3.15.2023 low. Below from there, the index is doing a pullback in wave 4, which is expected to find support in 3, 7, or 11 swings for further upside. Down from wave 3, the pullback is unfolding as Elliott wave zigzag correction where wave ((a)) ended at $4474.55 low. Then wave ((b)) bounce ended at $4519.84 high and ((c)) is expected to extend lower towards $4394.65- $4317.36 100%-161.8% Fibonacci extension area of ((a))-((b)). Also, wave 4 typically ends somewhere at the 23.6 – 38.2% Fibonacci retracement of wave 3. That area comes at $4419.19 – $4308.22, which also coincides with the 100%-161.8% Fibonacci extension area of ((a))-((b)) as well. From there, the Index can find buyers for further upside.
