Technical Analysis Elliott Waves Part 5

Flat Corrections

Flat corrections are very common.

Note in figure 7.23 that waves A and B of a flat correction are both three-wave correction patterns. Wave C is an impulse pattern and usually does not pass much farther than the end of wave A.
Flat corrections mostly can be found in B waves, but they appear also in waves 2 and 4. In an extended flat correction, waves B and C move past wave A. In a broken flat correction, wave A is passed by wave B, but wave B is still a correction pattern.

Rules and Guidelines

  • Wave A can be any correction pattern.
  • Wave B can be any kind of correction pattern, except a triangle.
  • Wave B takes at least 50% back of wave A.
  • Wave B is never more than 200% of wave A.
  • Wave C is an impulse wave or an ending wedge impulse pattern.
  • Wave C is never more than 300% of wave A.
  • Wave C is never more than 200% of waves A and B.
  • Wave C moves into the territory of wave A.

Double and Triple Flat Corrections

Just like with the zigzag, in the flat correction, we have variants with a double and a triple flat correction.

A double flat correction is quite common, and a triple flat correction is rare.

A double flat correction is composed of two flat corrections connected via a correction pattern.

A triple flat correction is composed of three flat corrections connected via correction patterns.

We use WXY to denote a double flat correction, instead of the standard ABCXABC Elliott notation.

For the triple flat correction, this becomes WXYX²Z. This is a more consistent way of notation because more flat corrections of a lower order (ABC) are connected together by a higher order wave (XYZ).

Rules and Guidelines

  • Wave W is any correction pattern, except a triangle or a double or triple pattern.
  • Wave X is any correction pattern, except a triangle or a double or triple pattern.
  • Wave X is a minimum 50% of wave W.
  • Wave X is a maximum 400% of wave W.
  • Wave Y is any correction pattern, except a double or triple pattern.
  • Wave Y is bigger than wave X, except with a triangle pattern.
  • Wave X² is any correction pattern, except a triangle or a double or triple pattern.
  • Wave X² is a minimum 50% of wave Y.
  • Wave X² is a maximum 400% of wave Y.
  • Wave Z is any correction pattern, except a double or triple pattern.
  • Wave Z is not a zigzag if wave Y is a zigzag.

 

Wave Z is bigger than wave X².

    Good day! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where
    I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form?

    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding
    one? Thanks a lot!

    I’m studying for my bachelors degree in computer science, and I might continue on to get a masters degree. I have my A+ and Network+ certifications, and I’m planning on getting Linux, Network Security, and the Microsoft certifications.. . Can I get a job doing computer forensics with this? If not, what should I do to increase my chances of getting a computer forensics job?. . Thanks. Just a little more info: I do more programming than anything with computers, but I’m pretty good with the non-programming side too..
