When trading the financial markets, progress is shaped by three waves in the direction of the prevailing trend, and two corrections in the opposite direction.
Ralph Nelson Elliott named and defined a number of wave patterns that recur during the lifespan of a financial instrument and also set the rules and guidelines where they appear.
Pattern, ratio and time are three very important aspects of Elliott Wave Theory:
- Pattern refers to the wave patterns that are present in the market.
- Ratio refers to the possible retracements and price targets by analysing the relationship among different waves.
- Time relationships confirm the wave patterns and ratios.
