"Looking to hear back from you"

Is it a correct sentence?

    Welcome to the forum.

    Your sentence would be suitable as a close to an informal letter. In a more formal setting you could say, "I look forward to your reply" or "I hope to hear from you soon."

    "Thanks" (or "thank you") not "tanks."

    If you want something like what you wrote, "Looking forward to hearing back from you."

    "Looking," without "forward," has a different meaning and does not fit here.

    Since you look forward to something, such as an event, you need a noun after it. "Hearing" is a gerund, the noun form of a verb.

    You could say "I look forward to your party," or "Looking forward to your party." It's the same structure. The noun is "your party."

    And welcome to the forum!
