The Corona Virus has had its toll on the marketplace in general. But some select names have rallied sharply off the March 2020 lows, Square is one of those names. Square has rallied from a low of 32.33 to a high of 133.81 recently. Lets take a look at what the company does:

Square is showing a beautiful count off the IPO low, lets take a look at the Elliott Waves on SQ.
Square Elliott Wave Weekly View:
On a longer term view, Square shows a complete 5 waves sequence into the 2018 peak. From the Blue (I) top in 2018, Square is favoured to have set an abc structure for Blue (II), which bottomed in March 2020 with the rest of the general market. It has since gone to make new all time highs off that low which gives it a bullish sequence. In the longer term view, a Red I high is favoured to materialize in the months ahead, before a deeper retrace for Red II. Before that happens though, there is more upside favoured to take place to complete the cycle off the March 2020 low. Currently, prices are within the blue box extreme on a weekly view, this is an area that buyers can take profits for a pullback in 3,7 or 11 swings.
Square 4H Elliott wave view:
Medium term term view from 3/18/2020 lows of 32.33. Wave ((1)) is set at 59.25 on 3/26/2020 and wave ((2)) at 42.33 on 4/03/2020. After that, an extended Black ((3)) took place, which is favoured topped on 7/09/2020 at 133.81. After that, it is favoured that Square bottomed in Black ((4)) at 111.14 on 7/14/2020. Presently, it is favored to extend higher in Black ((5)) of Red I before a larger correction can take place. We do not favour to sell/short Equities, or high cap tech names, Square would be included in that category.
In conclusion, Square is favoured to advance higher in ((5)) of Red I. It is getting late in the cycle from March 2020 low. The risk is high to add new positions at this time, but further upside is expected nonetheless.
