From the March lows, wave I demonstrates clearly the subdivisions of 5. In fact, this number of 5 is a characteristic feature of the motive waves.

Since the price has broken below the price trendline, the March cycle has ended in September 2020 at 10593 highs.

From the September highs, pullback in wave II has started and should find support in 3, 7, 11 swings above 7648.5 for an extension higher in wave III of (V). In shorter cycles, a first leg lower in wave ((A)) of II is currently in progress. Once finished, the bounce in wave ((B)) should fail below 10593 highs for another leg lower in wave ((C)). Later on, investors and traders can buy SMI against 7648.5 lows for an extension higher in waves III-V of (V) looking towards 12619-14602 area and even higher .
