BlackRock 04.17.2019 4H Sequence Analysis
The move higher makes a 5-swing incomplete bullish sequence from the 12/24/18 low. Ideally, BlackRock should see the $467.73-$483.07 area, which is the 0.618-0.764 Fibonacci extension area from its 12/24/18 lows. Within that area, it is expected to end the 5th swing followed by a pullback in swing 6, before another extension higher into the initial equal legs should be seen.
The target area of the equal legs extreme comes at around $504.62-$526.17, where a bigger reaction lower is expected to take place and also to end the 7th swing. For now, any pullback against the 03/25/19 low should find buyers at the sequences of 3-7 or 11 swings, targeting the equal legs area.
