In this blog, we take a look at BABA’s almost perfect reaction lower from the recent blue box. Let us take a look at the 1 hour chart from 3/29/2021. BABA ended a cycle correction at 241.60 peak for red wave B. Down from there, the stock made a five wave impulse decline in black wave ((i)) at 217.61. Internally, we had blue waves (i) to (v) in ((i)). And each of the waves (i) to (v) also subdivided into impulse waves. Blue wave (iii) was in excess of 261.8% extension of blue wave (i) related to wave (ii). Therefore, wave (iii) was extended.
We naturally expect black wave ((ii)) to correct the impulse in ((i)). Up from the 217.61 black wave ((i)) lows, we see 3 swings in ((ii)). We expected black wave ((ii)) to reach the blue box and turn lower.

The 1 hour chart below is from 4/1/2021. On it, we see a reaction from the blue box. Short positions from the blue box were already running risk free. We expect BABA to continue lower. We expect the stock to break below 217.61 black wave ((i)) levels in order to confirm the next leg lower in black ((iii)). Our initial target is at least the length for ((iii)) to reach the 100% equal legs of wave ((i)). Since we are anticipating wave ((iii)), we would typically expect an extension to occur. However, wave ((i)) appears to have extended. Therefore, we may not see an extention in wave ((iii)).
