Short term Elliott Wave view on Nasdaq (NQ) suggests the decline from 8.17.2022 high is unfolding as a zigzag Elliott Wave structure. Down from 8.17 high, wave A ended at 12017.75. Wave B ended at 12986.74 with internal subdivision as an expanded flat. Up from wave A, wave ((a)) ended at 12461.50 and dips in wave ((b)) ended at 11921.50.

Near term, expect wave (i) of ((iii)) to end soon. Index should then rally in wave (ii) to correct cycle from 9.22.2022 high (12143.34) before it resumes lower.
