Starbucks ($SBUX) Elliott Wave analysis – July daily chart
Starbucks completed a cycle from March 2022 low in July 2021 peak and we labeled as wave I. Then we could see a double correction ((W)), ((X)) and ((Y)). A clear 7 swing correction to complete wave II in May 2022. From here we were calling a beginning of a nest to continue with the rally. A nest is a group of waves 1 and 2 until wave 3 starts. (If you want to learn more about double correction or Elliott Wave Theory, follow these links: Elliott Wave Education and Elliott Wave Theory). The Rally continue higher than expected; therefore, we have adjusted the count labelling wave (1) higher as we show in the next chart.
Starbucks ($SBUX) Elliott Wave analysis – December daily chart
Starbucks bounced from the May low ended an impulse Wave 1 at 81.30 and pullback as wave 2 finished at 70.29. Then rally continued ended wave 3 at 89.94 and retracement as wave 4 completed at 81.72. Last push to complete wave (1) impulse ended at 93.63. After this, a flat correction appeared making 3 swings pullback where wave B was a triangle. Wave (2) ended at 82.50. The rally continued and we expect that wave 1 in red finishes soon. The best structure to complete an impulse as wave 1 is making one more high above 105.51 with divergence in the RSI. Then a correction in 3, 7 or 11 swings is expected to complete wave 2 and continue with the uptrend. The count is valid as we stay above 82.50.
