Nikkei has been rallying since April 2014′s low of 13800 in a diagonal. Diagonal is a five swing move with the convergence of boundary lines into a wedge shape. The subdivisions can be either 5-3-5-3-5 or 3-3-3-3-3. Ending Diagonals consist of 3-3-3-3-3 whereas Leading Diagonals can be either 5-3-5-3-5 or 3-3-3-3-3. In the case study below, we would be looking at a diagonal with sub-divisions of 3-3-3-3-3
