The rally lasted more than one and a half year so the correction in progress should last at least a few more months if it is going to be in proportion to the rise.

On the technical indicators both RSI and #b displayed clear negative divergence at the recent top of wave "5" compared to the previous top of wave "3". The divergence is marked on the chart with a red line connecting the two tops. It is typical of a 5th wave to end with lower momentum then wave "3" .

A common initial retracement is were wave "4"  bottomed or around USD 45.

A more interesting question is if this complete a one larger degree Elliott Wave structure as well. If so then the initial retracement is USD 18 - 20 were the larger degree 4th wave bottomed. If you want to know if we believe this is the case, subscribe to our investment newsletter.
