In this technical blog, we will look at the past performance of the 1-hour Elliott Wave Charts of GDX. The decline from the 18 July 2023 high unfolded as an impulse sequence and showed a lower low sequence within the bigger cycle from the 04 May 2023 peak. Therefore, we knew that the structure in GDX is incomplete to the downside & should see more weakness. So, we advised members to sell the bounces in 3, 7, or 11 swings at the blue box areas. We will explain the structure & forecast below:

Then a pullback to $28.01 low ended wave ((b)) and started the ((c)) leg higher towards $29.71- $30.75 blue box area from where sellers were expected to appear looking for more downside or for a 3 wave reaction lower at least.
