Summary Of Elliott Wave Theory

Elliott Wave Theory Tips For Forex Trading

  • Elliott Waves are fractals. Each wave can be split into parts, each of which is a very similar copy of the whole. Mathematicians like to call this property “self-similarity”.
  • A trending market moves in a 5-3 wave pattern.
  • The first 5-wave pattern is called impulse wave.
  • One of the three impulse waves (1, 3, or 5) will always be extended. Wave 3 is usually the extended one.
  • The second 3-wave pattern is called corrective wave. Letters A, B, and C are used instead of numbers to track the correction.
  • Waves 1, 3 and 5, are made up of a smaller 5-wave impulse pattern while Waves 2 and 4 are made up of smaller 3-wave corrective pattern.
  • There are 21 types of corrective patterns but they are just made up of three very simple, easy-to-understand formations.
  • The three fundamental corrective wave patterns are zig-zags, flats, and triangles.

There are three cardinal rules in Elliott Wave Theory when labeling waves:

  • 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

If you look hard enough at a chart, you’ll see that the market really does move in waves.

Because the forex market never moves in text book perfect fashion, it will take many, many hours of practice analyzing waves before you start to get comfortable with Elliott waves. Stay diligent and never give up!



       ● 艾略特波浪所具有的一种重要特性就是其具有分形结构。分形是这么一种结构,它能够细分成更小的部分,

       ● 艾略特认为,市场呈5-3浪形态波动。

       ● 最初的5浪称为推动浪。

       ● 上升浪(1、3、5浪)中,总有某一浪是延长浪,通常认为,第3浪为延长浪。

       ● 最后的3浪称为调整浪,通常用字母来表示。

       ● 第1、3、5浪都是由更小层级的5浪推动浪形态构成,而第2、4浪则由更小的3浪回调浪形态组成。

       ● 调整浪形态由简单到复杂,可多达21种,但它们仅仅由三种非常易于掌握的形态组成。

       ● 三种基本的调整浪形态为:锯齿形、平台形以及三角形。

       ● 艾略特波浪理论有3条重要规则

                 ● 规则一:第3浪永远不是最短的浪

                 ● 规则二:第2浪永远不可能超过第1浪开启的起点

                 ● 规则三:第4浪永远不会进入第1浪的价格范围

       ● 如果你对图形进行足够的观察,你将看到市场确实处于波浪运动中。

       ● 由于市场永远不会出现教科书上所描述的运动态势,因此,我们在熟练掌握艾略特理论进行交易之前,需要做大量的实践和分析。要记住,保持勤勉的学习态度和永不放弃的精神!
