My wave count on this downtrend is very preliminary and I need more confirmation in order to more confidently make any count. This rally if it occurs can help towards that. But what I am seeing is possible that this will turn out to be a ABC (5-3-5) wave 4 and in which what could be happening now is a 5-wave wave (A) of that . And within this wave (A), it is just finishing the wave iii and will now start a wave iv correction. If that holds, then the completion could mark the end of the wave iv correction and then a wave v impulse down will follow. to finish wave (A). But as I said, this "guess" is just a guess based on experience and really, there is a lack of enough solid data points to confidently label anything as of yet.

But the R:R is good. My stops will go below the current C point of the . Because I am expecting this to be a "brief" rally before more downside, my TP1 will be just short o the completion where there is some minor sr structure. At that point, I will review the price action and see if I will close this trade.
