Forex Education: Trading Elliott Wave Zigzags
In this webinar recording, we assessed another one of the cornerstone patterns of Elliott Wave Theory, the zigzag.
There are two main rules associated with zigzag waves:
- Wave B cannot retrace 100% or more of wave A.
- The subwaves are 5-3-5 meaning wave A has 5 waves, wave B has 3 waves, wave C has 5 waves
We also looked at an idealized view including subwaves for a zigzag. We also discussed channeling the zigzag and other common guidelines for them. More importantly, at the end, we discussed how you use this information to trade it.
