Corrective Waves

The 5-wave trends are then corrected and reversed by 3-wave countertrends. Letters are used instead of numbers to track the correction. Check out this example of a smokin’ hot corrective 3-wave pattern!

 

ABC Corrective Wave Pattern
Just because we’ve been using a bull market as my primary example doesn’t mean the Elliott Wave Theory doesn’t work on bear markets. The same 5-3 wave pattern can look like this:

Types of Corrective Wave Patterns

According to Elliott, there are 21 corrective ABC patterns ranging from simple to complex.

“Uh 21? I can’t memorize all of that! The basics of the Elliott Wave Theory are already mind-blowing!”

Take it easy, young padawan. The great thing about Elliott Wave is you don’t have to be above the legal drinking age to trade it! You don’t have to get a fake ID or memorize all 21 types of corrective ABC patterns because they are just made up of three very simple easy-to-understand formations.

Let’s take a look at these three formations. The examples below apply to uptrends, but you can just invert them if you’re dealing with a downtrend.

The Zig-Zag Formation

 

Zig-Zag Formation
Zig-zag formations are very steep moves in price that goes against the predominant trend. Wave B is typically shortest in length compared to Waves A and C. These zig-zag patterns can happen twice or even thrice in a correction (2 to 3 zig-zag patterns linked together). Like with all waves, each of the waves in zig-zag patterns could be broken up into 5-wave patterns.

 

The Flat Formation

 

Flat Formation
Flat formations are simple sideways corrective waves. In flats, the lengths of the waves are GENERALLYequal in length, with wave B reversing wave A’s move and wave C undoing wave B’s move. We say generally because wave B can sometimes go beyond the beginning of wave A.

 

The Triangle Formation

 

Triangle Formation
Triangle formations are corrective patterns that are bound by either converging or diverging trend lines. Triangles are made up of 5-waves that move against the trend in a sideways fashion. These triangles can be symmetrical, descending, ascending, or expanding.

ABC调整浪形态

       当5浪形态完成后,随后就是调整,或反转的3浪回调。这3浪是用字母而非数字,来标示调整浪。查看这个例子,一个火辣辣的调整3浪形态!

  
       在第一个例子中,虽然我们使用了一个牛市来示范,但这不意味着艾略特波浪理论,就不能运用在熊市中。同样的5-3波浪形态也可以是这样的:

调整浪形态的类型

       按照艾略特所说,ABC调整浪共有21种形态,从简单到复杂。

       “呃21种?我肯定不能记住它们全部!艾略特波浪理论的基础课程,已经成为梦幻泡影了!”

       别紧张,年轻的学徒。艾略特波浪理论最棒的地方,就是你并不需要超过法定的饮酒年龄就可以使用它!你也不再需要千辛万苦的去伪造假身份证或记忆完21种调整浪形态,因为它们已经改良成三个非常简单且易于理解的形态。

       让我们来看看这三个形态。这些都是用于上涨趋势的例子,但你也可以在下跌趋势中使用,你只需要反转它们就可以了。

“之字形”调整浪形态


       之字形形态是在波动非常激烈的时候形成的,而且价格现在的走势是和之前的推动浪是相反的。通常和A浪、C浪的长度相比,B浪是最短的话。这些之字形形态可能会出现2个、甚至3个在一个调整浪中(2至3个的之字形形态连在一起的情况)。就像其他所有的波浪一样,每个之字形形态的波浪,可以再被细分为5浪形态。

“平直型”调整浪形态


       平直型形态是最简单的横向回调浪。在平直型形态中,ABC浪的长度通常是相等的,但是B浪可以强过A浪,而C浪不能强过B浪。我们通常会说,B浪有时候会超过A浪的起点。

“三角形”调整浪形态


       三角形的形成是由于调整浪的形态,受到趋势线的会聚或发散的限制。三角形形态是由5浪构成的,它会破坏一个横向的走势。这些三角形形态可以是:对称的、下降的、上升的,或扩散的。
