Russell 2000 (RTY) is close to breaking below 6.16.2022 low at 1640.70. A break below that level will open a bearish sequence from 11.8.2021 peak favoring further downside. Short term Elliott Wave View suggests that cycle from 8.1.2023 high is in progress as an impulse Elliott Wave structure. Down from 8.1.2023 high, wave 1 ended at 1832.8 and rally in wave 2 ended at 1934. The Index extended lower in wave 3 towards 1720.7 and rally in wave 4 ended at 1802.70. Wave 5 lower is currently in progress which should complete wave (1) in higher degree. Down from wave 4, wave ((i)) ended at 1724.30 and wave ((ii)) ended at 1792.90. The 45 minutes chart below shows the starting point of wave ((ii)) of 5.
