3 Cardinal Rules of the Elliott Wave Theory

3 Cardinal Rules of the Elliott Wave Theory

As you may have guessed, the key in using the Elliott Wave Theory in trading is all about being able to correctly identify waves.

By developing the right eye in recognizing what wave the market is in, you will be able to find out which side of the market to trade on, long or short.

There are three cardinal “cannot-be-broken” rules in labeling waves. So, before you jump right in to applying the Elliott Wave Theory to your trading, you must take note of the rules below.

Failing to label waves correctly can prove disastrous to your account.

3 Cardinal Rules of the Elliott Wave Theory

  • Rule Number 1: Wave 3 can NEVER be the shortest impulse wave
  • Rule Number 2: Wave 2 can NEVER go beyond the start of Wave 1
  • Rule Number 3: Wave 4 can NEVER cross in the same price area as Wave 1

Then, there are the guidelines that help you in correctly labeling waves. Unlike the three cardinal rules, these guidelines can be broken. Here they are:

  • Conversely, sometimes, Wave 5 does not move beyond the end of wave 3. This is called truncation.
  • Wave 5, more often than not, goes beyond or “breaks through” the trend line drawn off Wave 3 parallel to a trend line connecting the start of Waves 3 and 5.
  • Wave 3 tends to be very long, sharp, and extended.
  • Waves 2 and 4 frequently bounce off Fibonacci retracement levels.

3条基本原则和一些指引

       或许您可能已经猜到了,在交易中使用艾略特波浪理论的关键,就是能够正确的数浪。

       通过仔细的观察,市场趋势正处于那段的波浪之中,你将能够更好的判断出,该做空还是做多。

       在标示波浪时,有三个不能被打破的原则。所以,在你使用艾略特波浪理论运用到交易之前,你必须注意下面的这些规定。

       不正确的数浪,对于您的帐户来说可能是灾难性的。

艾略特波浪理论的 3条基本原则

            ● 原则一:第三浪决不可能是最短的驱动浪

            原则二:第二浪决不可能低于第一浪起点

            原则三:第四浪决不可能会重叠到第一浪

       然后,还有些指引可以帮助你正确的数浪。

       不同于上面的三条基本原则,这些指引是可能被打破的。它们是:

           有些例外时候,第五浪没有突破第三浪的顶部。
              这称为衰竭的“失败浪”

           第五浪,经常会超出或“突破”第三浪顶部的趋势线,
              一条平行与连接第三浪与第五浪起点的趋势线。

           第三浪的波动往往是非常大、激烈和延伸的。

           第二浪和第四浪经常在斐波纳契回撤位置反弹。
