What are the 3 main Elliot wave rules

Elliot Wave Theory Rules are Simplified into 3. They give you full guidelines on how to trade the elliot wave theory strategy.

These 3 rules include.

1. Wave 2 never retraces 100% of wave 1

2. Elliot Wave 3 is never the shortest wave in a complete 5 wave sequence.

3. Wave 4 cannot retrace into wave 1

Guidelines for trading  Elliot wave theory rules

  • The impulse wave comprises of 5 waves.
  • Wave 3 is usually the strongest wave
  • The Elliot Wave 5 and wave 1 are very often equal in price
  • Wave 2 usually unfolds as simple a-b-c correction
  • Once a 5-wave sequence is complete the whole sequence is corrected.
  • The first leg off the move from a complete 5 wave sequence often finds support and resistance at the prior minor wave 4.
  • Once a correction completes the main trend resumes
  • Wave 4 can’t retrace into the area of Wave 1.

The violation of any of the above rules implies that the Elliot wave count is incorrect.
