: Draw a trend line from the beginning of Wave 3 to the end of Wave. The upper case Roman numerals represent the large degree waves, the simple numbers represent the medium degree waves and the small-case Roman numerals represent the small degree waves. The guideline of alternation (2) is useful for determining the time of correction for Wave. Conversely, the Primary wave is one lesser degree than the Cycle wave. Second Waves (Wave 2 second waves tend to retrace so much of Wave 1 that most of the profits gained are eroded. Guideline 1, the, guideline of Equality says that two of the motive sub-waves in a five wave sequence will tend toward equality, and is generally true of the non-extended waves. Guideline 2 : The forms for Wave 2 and Wave 4 will alternate. The books mentioned above will go into some detail on how this subject can help when applying Elliott Wave. No matter how big or small the wave degree, impulse waves take on a 5-wave sequence and corrective waves take on a 3-wave sequence. Guideline 4, the, guideline of Depth of Corrective Waves says that when the market goes into a correction, it often will correct to the territory of the previous Wave 4 of lesser degree. The percentage decline in Wave 1 would be applied to the high of Wave 4 for a Wave 5 estimate.

The point in using the rules and guidelines of the Elliott Wave Theory is to know where in the overall structure is the market right now, and what portion of that motion are they most likely. The labeling convention shown above is a hybrid between that shown in the Elliott Wave book and the Elliott tools from SharpCharts. In Elliott-speak, this labeling convention is used to identify the degree or level of the wave, which represents the size of the underlying trend. Nifty opened higher at 10331, registered low 10318 but bounced further and traded with positive bias for rest of the day.

By extension, Wave I is one larger degree than Waves. Third Waves (Wave 3). Even with accurate counts, chartists will still need to re-evaluate and adjust counts as new price information emerges.

However, the fifth wave of an extended fifth will lack the change of the previous waves and give clues about a change in direction. Elliott Wave indicates that Wave 3 must exceed the high of Wave. Arithmetic scale charts are good for looking at waves on lower degrees, but semi-log scale charts are good for bringing large trends (higher degrees) into perspective. This sets things up for the next wave to follow. Even though this article just scratches the surface of Elliott Wave Theory, chartists can greatly improve their counting by applying the three rules and three guidelines listed. If Wave 2 is sideways, Wave 4 will be sharp. They are typically unmistakable, as confidence in the direction of the new trend is clearly evident. E Waves (Wave E) Wave E shows up as the last wave in horizontal triangles. According to Elliott, this complete sequence is divided into two distinct phases: the impulse phase and the corrective phase. Eliminating bogus counts paves the way to a more accurate count. There are three ways that channeling can be used for projecting the end of waves, but they all use the same technique. Specializing in QQQ and the DIA analysis and trading.

Nifty bounced by more than 180 points to register days high 10482 and closed 159 points up at 10460. The Guideline of Alternation within an Impulse says that the forms for Wave 2 and Wave 4 will alternate. If Wave 2 is a sharp style of correction, Wave 4 will be a sideways style of correction.
