For Elliott wave analysts, 5 is the magic number.

The 5-wave structure (idealized version shown below) is one of the bedrocks of this market-forecasting method. Its rules and guidelines help you determine the depth and duration of developing waves. If you stay its course, the 5-wave form will lead you, like a hound dog leads a hunter, straight to opportunity.
Let's take the recent performance in soybeans for a real-world example.
In the May 3 Daily Futures Junctures, EWI's chief commodity analyst Jeffrey Kennedy identified the final 3 legs of a larger 5-wave rally from the December 2011 low on the chart below. Here, Jeffrey's rulebook opened right to the page titled "What happens after a 5-wave move is complete" and read:
            "A finished trend of 5 waves is followed by a 3-wave correction in the opposite direction."
With that simple guide, Jeffrey's confidence in this near-term scenario was set: "We can count 5 waves up and done, which would be exceptionally bearish for this market; i.e. a sell off" to much lower levels. Here's the chart Jeffrey showed subscribers on May 3:
And here's a chart that shows how soybean prices hit Jeffrey's initial downside price target before rebounding.
For futures traders right now the question is whether the early May decline in soybeans is a brief detour on the way to higher highs.
And, in the new, May 16 Daily Futures Junctures video + written analysis of soybeans, you get a clear answer to that question.

The Elliott Wave Principle is a detailed description of how financial markets behave. The description reveals that mass psychology swings from pessimism to optimism and back in a natural sequence, creating specific Elliott wave patterns in price movements. Each pattern has implications regarding the position of the market within its overall progression, past, present and future. The purpose of Elliott Wave International’s market-oriented publications is to outline the progress of markets in terms of the Wave Principle and to educate interested parties in the successful application of the Wave Principle. While a course of conduct regarding investments can be formulated from such application of the Wave Principle, at no time will Elliott Wave International make specific recommendations for any specific person, and at no time may a reader, caller or viewer be justified in inferring that any such advice is intended. Investing carries risk of losses, and trading futures or options is especially risky because these instruments are highly leveraged, and traders can lose more than their initial margin funds. Information provided by Elliott Wave International is expressed in good faith, but it is not guaranteed. The market service that never makes mistakes does not exist. Long-term success trading or investing in the markets demands recognition of the fact that error and uncertainty are part of any effort to assess future probabilities. Please ask your broker or your advisor to explain all risks to you before making any trading and investing decisions.
