Hi Kor,
Not wishing to steal your thunder, but isn't this XABCD basically the same as the Wolfe Wave? If there are any differences, could you please post the two patterns side by side and identify the key differences?

I understand that projected lines 2-4 must not be parallel to line 1-3 i.e. they must meet in the future, and that point 4 must be within the vertical range of line 1-2. How does this differ from the XABCD?

Thanks

Hi Clara,
I've only recently got to know the Wolfe Wave pattern, and it seems there are some different definitions of it e.g. whether point 4 is outside or inside the line 1-2. I have found that if point 4 is inside the vertical distance between points 1 & 2, then it stand a better chance of completing the pattern i.e. that a line extended between point 1 & point 4 will be the target hit by price when it leaves point 5.

There are some good WW examples @ Wolfe Wave but if you are mainly interested in Wolfe Waves, then you might find more info here Wolfe wave indicator

5. Hi,
Does anyone have a name for this diagonal pattern, the diamond shaped one in grey? I've normally seen it half way along a run, not at the start.

Hi Clara,
Yes, thanks, but getting blown about a bit here in the UK

Beware...quite a few Wolfe Waves do not complete the route down to the 1-4 line, as this example shows from a short trade I took yesterday (14th Feb). The closely spaced dashed green lines are swing high tops from April 2011, so I thought a good place for price to bounce off, together with the appearance of a WW point 5. However, the market is always right! The GBP was very strong yesterday and didn't feel like coming back down to the 1-4 line

Regards,

Mike

8. Hello Mike,

Thank you for sharing..

9. Hi Clara,
I'm not a WW expert, but WW is not quite like Elliot wave, in that EW is a sequence of 3 impulse waves followed by 2 correction waves, whereas WWs are more symetrical from start to finish, and often, by running a trend line through the centre of a WW swing, it is possible to accurately predict where the next WW swing will hit. If I've not correctly answered your question, please try again

10. Here is another example of when price did not go to the 1-4 line, because it hit a top to the left and couldn't go through.
Note also how the swing from 5 up to the dotted green line was duplicated almost to the pip up to the eventual swing high (red diagonal lines). I baled out before the US news dropped into the cellar.
