Elliott Wave Flat
Elliott Wave Flat is a 3 waves corrective pattern which could often be seen in the market nowadays. Inner subdivision is labeled as A,B,C , with inner 3,3,5 structure. That means waves A and B have forms of corrective structures such as zigzag, flat, double three or triple three. Third wave C is always a 5 waves structure, either as motive impulse or ending diagonal pattern. In Regular Flats wave B is usually a deep pull back but it needs to complete above the starting point of wave A, and wave C ends above the ending point of wave A . Wave C completes usually close to 1.236 Fibonacci extension of A related to B, but sometimes it could go up to 1.618 fibs ext. At the graphic below, we can see Regular Flat structure
