In this technical blog, we are going to take a look at the past performance of 1 hour Elliott Wave Charts of IYR, which we presented to members at elliottwave-forecast. In which, the rally from 16 December 2019 low ($89.40) showed an impulse structure. Thus suggested that it’s a continuation pattern. And as per Elliott wave theory after a 3 waves pullback, it should do another extension higher in 5 waves impulse structure at least. Therefore, we advised members not to sell the instrument & trade the no enemy areas ( blue boxes) as per Elliott wave hedging remained the preferred path looking for 3 wave reaction higher at least. We will explain the structure & forecast below:
