The US30 made a strong bullish bounce at the bottom of the 21 ema zone and the support trend line (green). A push higher (green arrow) is expected now that the wave 4 (grey) seems completed.

  1. The bullish breakout could complete a wave 5 (grey) of wave 5 (pink) of wave 3 (purple).
  2. After this bullish wave 5 of wave 3, price action could build a larger consolidation within a wave 4 (orange arrows).
  3. The first target for the upside is 32,500. The second target is at 33,000.
  4. The long-term targets (after wave 4) could aim as high as 34,250 – 35,000 later this year.

On the 1 hour chart, we can see that an ABC correction (orange) was completed as forecasted in our previous analysis. This ABC completed the wave 4 (grey).

  1. The bullish impulse is typical for a wave 3 (orange).
  2. The current pullback is a wave 4 (orange) pattern as long as price remains above the shallow Fibonacci levels.
  3. The most common Fibs for the wave 4 are the 23.6% and 38.2%.
  4. A break below the 50% Fib places the uptrend on hold (yellow button) whereas a deeper retracement invalidates it (red circle).
  5. A bullish breakout is expected (green arrow). A bull flag pattern and second breakout (green arrows) could confirm the immediate uptrend.
  6. A strong bearish reversal (red arrow) could indicate a deeper retracement to the 38.2% Fib. An uptrend is expected from the 38.2% Fib via a bullish bounce (blue arrow).
