If you have any questions or suggestions you are welcome to join our forum discussion about Elliott Wave Oscillator. The Elliott Oscillator has a robust correlation with Elliott wave patterns and its strongest readings typically show you where the third wave is on the chart. The EWO can be applied on each time frame and will work equally well, if the sample size is large enough.
It is displayed as a histogram split into two — a positive and a negative area. The following screenshots shows its visualization. In general, wave 1 most often starts with a trend reversal. Wave 2, which as we know is a correction to wave 1, usually does not reach a new extreme in the counter-trend direction, e.
As you know, wave 4 is the other correctional wave during the with-trend momentum, thus a second major correction in the Elliott Wave Oscillator will most likely be wave 4. The end of wave 2 is logically followed by the beginning of wave 3.
Wave 3 is the point where you should have identified the pattern and must act. Wave 4 usually reverses the oscillator and crosses into the opposite area beyond zero becomes negative during a bull trend and vice versa.
The price typically reaches a new high during wave 5, but it diverges from the oscillator, i. The opposite scenario is in force for a bear trend. This signals that the pattern is nearing completion and the trend is coming to an end. The upcoming reversal will often be followed by the formation of a new wave 1 in the opposite direction.
If, however, there is no evident divergence, then the suspected wave 5 is probably false and must be regarded as an extended wave 3. In that case, what we thought to have been wave 4 is nothing more than a pullback within the large wave 3.
A protracted wave 3 is evidence of a major price movement in the direction of the trend, which is expected to continue for some time to come. Founded in , Binary Tribune aims at providing its readers accurate and actual financial news coverage.
