Microsoft ( NASDAQ: MSFT) established new all time highs back in April the 25th and since then it saw a 9% drop. MSFT follow the same code as the rest of the financial market so if we take a look at the technical chart of the stock we can recognize a clear impulsive pattern taking place from December 2018 low.
Based on the Elliott Wave Theory, every 5 waves impulsive structure is followed by a technical corrective sequences which comes in 3, 7 or 11 swings. At the end of the corrective sequence, usually the instrument will resume the move within the main trend or at least correct the previous cycle. In the Classic 3 swings ABC zigzag structure, the Market does 5 waves move, then it corrects in 3 waves followed with another 5 waves move to the same direction of the previous 5 waves.
MSFT rally from $93.7 low was in impulsive 5 waves which ended at 4/25/2019 peak $131.8. Down from there it started the correction lower showing an initial 3 waves pullback which reached the 100% – $161.8% Fibonacci extension area $121.5 – $115.9 . Up from there, the stock will have the possibility to resume the rally to new all time highs and create separation to absorb the next pullback.
