Elliott Wave Theory is quite straightforward. Created by Ralph Nelson Elliott and first published in his book

The Wave Principle in 1938, this theory has suffered numerous misinterpretations at the hands of careless

analysts. It is true that Ralph Elliott was not an expert copywriter, and he tried to present a more

comprehensive version in his final work Natures Laws: The Secret of the Universe in 1946. However, a

diligent student can learn quite a lot by paying attention to not just the main features of the Elliott Wave

Theory, but also to the numerous clues that are strewn in all of Ralph Elliotts works. In this article, I will try and

summarize some of the main points of the Wave Theory. Also explained are Elliott Wave Cycle, the three key

Elliott Wave Rules that are considered the pillars of the Wave Principle, and the Personality of some waves

such as the third wave in a cycle.

Ralph Elliott found that in an uptrend, or a bull phase of the market, prices went up in five waves. Three of

these waves were in the upward direction, and he called these waves impulse waves. Each of the three

waves was followed by a downward movement, which he called a corrective wave. Here is a clue that is not

often very clear! Whereas the first and second impulse waves were followed by a smallish correction, the

downward move that came after the fifth wave up was a larger move. This was so because this last mentioned

downward move corrected not just the preceding impulse wave (the 5th wave) but also the entire five wave

sequence.

So to recap, in a bull market, we will see three upward moves and two downward moves. Once the five waves

are completed, we will get a correction that will be bigger than the two previous corrections because this

downward move corrects not just the fifth wave, but the entire set of five waves up.

If a sequence of five waves plus three waves is completed as above from a significant low, then the completed

cycle will represent the first and second waves of a cycle in the time frame of the nest higher degree. Every

impulse wave is actually made up of a five-wave sequence within itself. Corrective waves are usually made up

The Elliott Wave Principle has just three straight forward rules. In a five wave progression,

2. Wave 3 can never be the shortest impulse wave

3. Wave 4 can never overlap wave 1 (i.e. cross into the same price area) expect within a diagonal triangle.

waves at various positions in the cycle. For example, the third wave is usually the steepest wave, and is

accompanied by expanding volume. A corrective wave in the fourth wave position is usually complex in nature.

You will see sudden departures from normative behavior. Also, just when you think a correction is almost

finished, a complex fourth wave will add another level of complexity to the formation. These are just some

examples of wave personality.

Another feature of Elliott Waves is the tendency of waves to alternate between long and short, between simple

and complex, between the length s of time that alternating waves spend etc. For example, if wave 2 was a

simple correction, you should expect wave 4 to be complex. These are valuable clues to the trade that can

offer a real edge in the market, the so-called Elliott Wave Edge.

Any explanation of Elliott Wave Theory, however brief, will be incomplete without a mention of the use of

Fibonacci Ratios. These ratios are computed from the Fibonacci number series that start of like this

1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21. As you can see, each number is the sum of the preceding two numbers. Fibonacci Ratios

are computed from these numbers. The key ratios used in Elliott Wave Analysis are 38.2%, 50%,61.8%,

100%, 138.2% and 161.8%

Generally speaking, the following relationships work.

Articles on Seeking Alpha

Wave 1 is corrected by wave 2 by between 50% to 100% (note that 50% is obtained by dividing 1 by 2

in the Fibonacci series of numbers)

Wave 3 is usually 161.8% of wave 1

Wave 4 is often 38.2% of wave 3. Occasionally, when wave 1 was a shallow correction, we can see

wave 4 coming down by 50% of wave 3, and very rarely 61.8% of wave 3. If wave 3 was an extension,

then wave 4 is more likely to terminate around the 23.6% retracement level.

Wave 5 is often computed by taking either a 38.2% measure or a 61.8% measure of the distance

traveled from the start of wave 1 to the end of wave 3. If Wave 3 had extended, then there is a high

chance for wave 5 to be equal to wave 1.

Within corrections, in a zigzag correction, wave C is often 161.8% of wave A. If the correction is a flat

correction, then wave C is usually equal to wave A or no more than 138.2% of wave A.
