Elliot Wave Pattern Predictions
Ralph Nelson Elliott developed the Elliott Wave Theory in the late 1920s by discovering that stock markets, thought to behave in a somewhat chaotic manner actually traded in repetitive cycles.
In the financial markets we know that “every action creates an equal and opposite reaction” as a price movement up or down must be followed by a contrary movement. Price action is divided into trends and corrections or sideways movements. Trends show the main direction of prices while corrections move against the trend. Elliott labeled these “impulsive” and “corrective” waves.
