In March 2020, MCD ended a corrective cycle as wave ((II)) at 124.23 low and continued the rally. The new structure could be building a leading diagonal as wave (I); therefore, we called wave I completed at 271.15 high and pulback as wave II ended at 217.68 low. The market resumed to the upside in a choppy way finished wave III at 299.35  high. Next correction as wave IV ended a zig zag structure at 245.73 low and MCD rally again. Last January, we called that wave V of (I) should end soon and see a pullback in wave (II).

After 5 months, wave V of (I) ended almost inmmedialy at 302.39 high and started wave (II) correction. We believe that wave “a” of (II) has not ended yet. We can see 5 waves down from wave (I) high, but the last swings still could see one more low to end wave “a”. This low could drop to 245.79 – 240.41 area (1.236 – 1.618 inverse Fib retracement) where buyers should appear to see 3 or 7 swings bounce in wave “b” before resuming lower in wave “c” of (II).
