Hereby, blue wave (III) shows an extension and blue wave (IV) a converging Elliott wave triangle structure. From $95.41 highs, a consolidation in black wave ((II)) as a double three pattern has set an important bottom in March 2020 at 1.61 lows.
Secondly, from the March 2020 lows, new cycle in black wave ((III)) has started. Within it, $RRC price action has formed an intial nest in red waves I-II.
