SQ 4 HOUR CHART MARCH 2023
SQ ended a Grand Super Cycle at $51.28 in Nov 2022 low and since then has doubled in value. The bounce built an impulse ending at $75.78 which we called wave (I). Then, It dropped as a flat correction that completed at $58.30 as wave (II) and continued the rally to form another impulse finished at $89.98. We labeled this new impulse as wave I and pull backed again in 3 waves doing a zig zag correction ended at $71.79 as wave II.
Starting at $71.79, Block’s price has bounced in 3 waves and we are looking for 5 to complete a wave ((1)). After this, we must see a pullback in 3, 7 or 11 swings sequence as wave ((2)) to look for buying opportunities. The count is valid as long as market remains above $71.79 and would confirm the uptrend breaking the price of $89.98.
SQ 4 HOUR CHART MARCH 2023 ALTERNATIVE
An alternative to the main view is that wave II needs more downside as a double correction ((W)), ((X)), ((Y)). The current wave II would be the wave ((W)) subdivided into 3 waves. The corrective bounce would be the wave ((X)). Then, SQ would need 3 more waves down to complete the wave ((Y)) and the double correction. Here SQ should end wave II where we should look for buying opportunities waiting for a new rally. The count is valid as long as price does not drop below $58.30.
