Cocoa Elliott Wave Analysis
Function - Counter-trend
Mode - Corrective
Structure - Not yet defined
Position - Blue wave ‘b’
Direction - Blue wave ‘b’ is still in play
Details -  As the price reached the 30 major level. The circled wave b could have completed a double zigzag. However, price needs to break below the trendline strongly before expecting further decline for the circled wave c. However, if the 10000 major level is breached upside instead, then there is a risk of invalidation above 11732.

Since Mid-May 2024, Cocoa has gained about 40%. In other words, it has recovered over 60% of the sell-off from 19 April. Altogether, we can look at the decline from 19 April a retracement of the bullish trend that startedin October 2022.

On the daily chart, a bullish impulse wave structure which emerged from October 2022 ended at the peak of April 2024. As per Elliott wave theory, impulse in 5-waves is followed by a 3-wave correction against the direction of the impulse. Thus, when the impulse rally ended at 11.732, a sharp decline followed, which should at least complete a 3-wave correction. In this case, the corrective sub-waves are labeleda-b-c (circled). Price seems to be completing wave b at the 10,000 major level and if price has truly found a resistance there, we should see another leg lower for wave c toward the 5,000 major level. However, if current surge is not resisted below 10,000 but instead breach that major level to continue higher above 11,732 high, then the the bullish trend from october 2022 will continue higher. 


On the H4 chart, we reckon wave b (circled) has completed a double zigzag. However, the only concern is the steepness of the pattern which could make for an alternative that current surge could be the first leg of wave b (circled). If that’s the case, then bearish reaction from 10,000 will be a corrective structure leading to the last leg above 10,000 before wave b completes below 11,732 high. While having the alternative in mind, the preffered count expects wave b to have ended at 10,000 and wave c emerge downwards in an impulse below 20th May low.
