Elliott Wave the complete market cycle

MOTIVE WAVES

Key Characteristics

. Five-wave structures, numbered 1-5

. In the direction of the main trend of one larger degree

. Wave 2 cannot retrace more than 100% of wave 1

. Wave 3 can never be the shortest and is often the

longest

EXTENSIONS

Key Characteristics

. Elongated impulse wave

. Appears in either wave 1, 3 or 5

. Often seen in wave 3 for the stock market

. Often seen in wave 5 in commodities

MOTIVE WAVES

Five-Wave Structures

. Impulse

1. Extensions

2. Truncations

. Diagonal Triangles

IMPULSE WAVES

Key Characteristics

. Wave 4 never enters the price territory of wave 1.

. Actionary waves 1, 3 and 5 are motive waves.

. Wave 3 is always an impulse wave.

TRUNCATIONS

Key Characteristics

. Wave 5 does not exceed the end of wave 3

. Contains necessary five subwaves

. Often occurs after a strong third wave

DIAGONAL TRIANGLES

Key Characteristics

. Wave 4 almost always moves into the price

territory of wave 1

. Waves 1, 3 and 5 are composed of three

subwaves, not five

. Found at termination points of larger pattern,

indicating exhaustion of larger pattern

. Normally has wedge shape within two

converging lines

Elliott Analisys is:

The Wave Principle = Graphic of Mass Psychology

Motive Waves = 5 Wave Structures, Main Trend of One Larger Degree

Types of Motive Waves = Impulse, Diagonal Triangle

Impulse:Waves 1, 3, 5 = 5 Impulse Subwaves

(Extensions, Truncations)

Wave 4 ≠ Price Territory of Wave 1

Diagonal Triangle: Waves 1, 3, 5 = 3 Subwaves

Wave 4 = Price Territory of Wave 1

Signal = Imminent Major Trend Reversal
