Wave (A) ended at 1412.85, corrective wave (B) made a triangle and ended at 1530.84. It then continued lower to complete wave (C) and wave ((A)) at 1291.96. The market had a strong rebound that tested the highs ending wave ((B)) at 1721.65 and turned quickly making an ending diagonal structure completing wave ((C)) and wave II at 1280.31.

HDFC BANK Daily Chart August 09th 2022
After the bounce from the blue box, we were surprised by low testing again. Therefore, wave ((C)) and wave II ended the cycle at 1270.19 to continue the rally. We can see from the chart that since the new low, HDFC Bank has already built 4 waves up and needs one more wave to break 1513.88 to finish an impulse. We will call this impulse wave (1). After this, we expect a corrective move in 3, 7 or 11 swings to end wave (2) and then continue with the rally. The view is valid as long as the correction remains above 1270.19.

An alternative count for HDFC Bank is that it makes a double correction from 1726.02 peak. That is, the low of 1721.65 is considered as wave ((W)) and we are currently finishing a flat correction (A), (B), and (C), as wave ((X)). In this situation, what would happen is that when the impulse is completed, the stock price will continue to fall below 1270.19. Therefore, the movement of the market in this last quarter will be very important to determine what will happen with the share’s prices for the beginning of the next year.
