This is a continuation article for Elliott Wave view, previously posted on 10/17/2021. In previous article, we expect it to extend higher in the cycle started from August low in shorter time frame.
MRO – Old Elliott Wave analysis – 2 hour chart from 10/17/2021:
MRO made all time low Since 1969 during Covid pandemic sell off at $3.02 low on 4/01/2020. Thereafter it started higher high sequence & already made 17 swings higher from major low. Until the dips remains above 8/20/2021 low, it expect to extend higher in impulse sequence. Previously, MRO was analyzed in 2-hour chart, on 10/17/2021. It was expected to make at least two more highs to end the sequence started from $10.42 low on 8/20/2021. It was outperforming the Energy sector from August low. In 2-hour, it was ended 3 red at $16.60 & 4 at 15.40 low. While above there it was expected to reach $17.40 level as possible extension higher before it starts any larger pullback against August-2021 cycle.
It unfolds as expected as in previous update. It favored ended (1) at $17.58 high on 11/08/2021 as impulse sequence started from 8/20/2021 low. Within the sequence, 1 red ended at $12.19 high, while below there 2 ended at $11.02 low. The wave 3 favored ended at $17.32 high as third wave extension in third wave extension as 9 swings. The wave 4 ended at $16.34 low as running flat correction. Finally, the 5 ended at $17.58 high. Currently it favors the correction against the August-2021 low in proposed W-X-Y correction as (2) before it resumes the next leg higher or at least 3 swing bounce. Alternatively, it can do double correction lower in (2), if the bounce fails below $17.58 high. We like to stay long when it reaches the equal leg area within the correction lower against the August low.
