The9 Elliottwave View:
Since there isn’t really a lot of data to work with this is just a medium term term view from the low set at 2.02 in October 2020. NCTY was in a sideways consolidation before surging to a wave ((1)) peak set at 27.82 on Jan 7, 2021. After that, a sharp decline resulted in a 70% decline from the peak, which formed the wave ((2)) low. From that wave ((2)), the instrument began to form a series of nests. After the nests were set a very impulsive rally followed. Presently, it is favoured that red 3 has peaked in the extreme area for a pullback in red 4.
There are many more swings to complete the sequence to the upside but the extreme area is where buyers and sellers may start to fight. This can cause pries to be a little choppy. With this said, the 161.8 extension area at 49.75 could be an area where ((3)) peaks for a correction in ((4)). The9 is following Bitcoin fairly accurately, so keep an eye on the Bitcoin also for clues as to where this instrument may be headed.
