As our Senior Trading Instructor mentions in the Crypto Trader’s Classroom video below, “Whenever I’m labeling a price chart, I always start simple, and if necessary, move to a complex pattern. I always start with the 5 core Elliott Wave patterns.”
He explains why that’s important using an example in the altcoin Decentraland (MAN).

Earlier today, one of EWI’s analysts sent this seemingly enigmatic phrase to two other EWI analysts. But it’s not enigmatic at all, it very specifically indicated that the market was about to reverse. (Said market promptly dropped over 1.5% in the next couple hours.) That’s great if you get the lingo. If you don’t, but you’re ready to be one of the cool kids, here’s a resource you should check out - and it's free! Elliott Wave Principle >>

Elliott Wave Principle says this about the depth of corrective waves: “The primary guideline is that corrections, especially when they themselves are fourth waves, tend to register their maximum retracement within the span of travel of the previous fourth wave of one lesser degree.”
Now, check out this chart of Costco (COST) - as posted in our Flash Services. See that large grey-ish wave 4 over to the right? Now train your eye back to the left. See the red 3 and the red 4? (How can you not with the convenient lines we’ve added?) That’s the “span of travel of the previous fourth wave of one lesser degree.” Or, as they say in France, voila!!
And hey, as long as you’re at the store, grab me a few cases of something. I don’t care what; I just love volume discounts!
PS – COST rallied to over $600 by early April. That’s a LOT of paper towels!

Here are two great examples of gaps occurring in one of the three most common places they are found – in the middle of third waves. (Chart courtesy of our U.S. Intraday Stocks Pro Service.)

We have a tendency as investors/humans to overcomplicate things. Elliott waves are no exception.
While it takes time to truly master the intricacies of Elliott, you can learn to spot Elliott wave patterns right away.
Let’s start with the two basic modes of Elliott waves, impulse (or motive) and corrective waves. Impulse waves go in the direction of the market trend, while corrective waves go in the opposite direction.
There are three types of corrective wave patterns: zigzag, flat or a triangle.
Today, we’ll zero in on the corrective pattern with a funny name: the zigzag.
Here is a description from the benchmark for Elliott waves, Elliott Wave Principle:
A single zigzag in a bear market is a simple three-wave rising pattern labeled A-B-C.
And here’s a real-market zigzag example in silver from our March 28 Short Term Update.
"Silver's rally from $24.44 on March 16 to $25.89 on March 24 is in three waves. Three waves unfold counter to the next larger-degree of trend, so the "three up" means that silver’s larger trend is down."

Well, we're glad you asked because we just happen to have a great example right here!
That's the way an Elliott wave practitioner describes that part of an impulse wave where the market is simply going vertical. That's a great thing if you're on the right side of it and it's a bad thing if you're on the wrong side of it. (Trust me on that!)
Here's a picture in the Nasdaq from our Pro Services Stocks Intraday Services.

Here's another timely example of third-of-third waves at multiple degrees. This time in Cardano from our Crypto Pro Service...
03/18/22 12:30 PM ET (Last Price 0.85): Trend remains up from 0.75. Within that context but at rather short term very small wave degree as long as 0.82 nearby structural support remains intact, the existing preferred wave interpretation firmly favors price "going up a whole bunch real fast", doing so in a robustly third-of-third fashion at four wave degrees of significance.. Said another wave, that's a bevy of coiling one-two's poised to be unleashed with rather impressive impulsive buying pressure... if 0.82 structural support earns respect very near term. - Al Graham for Jim Martens
Chart from 03/23/22 2:07 PM ET:
Cardano has moved from 85 cents to almost $1.09. Now that's third-of-a-third action. Every wave trader's dream.-------------------------
