Copper Elliott Wave View: 5 Waves Calling Higher

In this technical blog, lets take a quick look at the 1 hour Copper Elliott wave view from March 09 lows. In which the the metal was showing 5 waves bounce from March 09 (2.5593) low & the bounce was impulsive rather then corrective sequence. Thus suggesting the cycle from (2.5593) low could be following the Elliott wave Zig-zag pattern. Where the cycle from (2.5593) low ended at March 20 peak (2.6979) that we have labelled as Minute wave ((a)) of the zig-zag pattern. According to Elliott wave theory Zigzag is a 3 wave structure having internal subdivision of (5-3-5) swing sequence. The internal oscillations are labeled as A, B, C where A = 5 waves, B = 3 waves and C = 5 waves. This means that A and C can be impulsive or diagonal waves. However the A and C waves must meet all the conditions of wave structure 5, such as: having an RSI divergence between wave subdivisions, ideal Fibonacci extensions, ideal retracements etc. The cycle from (2.5593) low to (2.6979) was in 5 waves sequence, then the 3 wave dip in Minute wave ((b)) was expected to hold above (2.5593) low for next leg higher in Minute ((c)) leg higher into the direction of previous wave ((a)) or for 3 swings bounce at least.
