Before we take a look at the real market expample of Expanded Flat, let’s explain the pattern in a few words.
Elliott Wave Expanded Flat is a 3 wave 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. Waves A and B have forms of corrective structures like zigzag, flat, double three or triple three. Third wave C is always 5 waves structure, either motive impulse or ending diagonal pattern. It’s important to notice that in Expanded Flat Pattern wave B completes above the start point of wave A, and wave C ends below the ending point of wave A which makes it Expanded. Wave C of expanded 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 what Expanded Flat structure looks like.
Now, let’s take a look at real market example and see what that pattern looks like.
EURAUD 1 Hour Elliott Wave Analysis 10.19.2018
As we can see on the chart below EURAUD has made price structure that is characteristic for bullish Expanded Flat. Wave ((b)) completed above the start point of wave ((a)), and wave ((c)) ended below the ending point of wave A. We’re already at the extremes area: ((a))-((b)) equal legs and buyers can appear anny moment.
Note: blue box marked on the chart is short term equal legs from the 10/11 peak, wave (i) blue related to (ii) blue, that comes at 1.61008-1.59859. Traders who wants to buy the pair, can use 1.618 FIb extension : 1.59859 as invalidation level. Current view suggests wave (v) of ((c)) of flat might be still in progress and give us more short term weakness .
As we keep saying Flat patterns can get tricky to trade, as sometimes get too extended , when 1.618 fib extension becomes less reliable. Anyway, best instruments to trade are those having incomplete bullish or bearish swings sequences. We put them in Sequence Report and best among them are shown in the Live Trading Room.
