Part 1: How to Count Waves Using Chart Patterns?

We can count waves using traditional patterns like Head and shoulders , Double Top and Bottom,
Triangle, cup & handle, etc. This article is about how you can count waves by identifying chart patterns.

I have covered Three chart patterns in this article,
1) Triangles
2) Head and shoulders
3) Double Top and Bottom

1) Head and shoulders :Free stockmarket elliottwave chart one

In addition, the two lows formed when the price failed to rise and fell back down were basically at the same level. The horizontal line is often referred to as the “neckline” When the price fails to fall back for the third time the neckline will break. So “head and shoulders” was officially established.

Changes in volume with head and shoulders:
During the formation of “head and shoulders”, the left shoulder has the largest volume , the Head has a slightly smaller volume , and the right shoulder has the smallest volume . The phenomenon of diminishing trading volume shows that when the stock price rises, the chasing force is getting weaker and weaker, and the price has the meaning of rising to the end.

Operation plan after the Head and shoulders appear:
When the head and shoulders formed, you can decisively follow up the short order. The formation of the head and shoulders indicates the beginning of a new round of decline in the market, and the minimum drop is the distance from the head to the neckline. The profit is very substantial. Therefore, studying the formation of the Head and Shoulders is also a necessary analysis process for band enthusiasts.

Wave Count:

The left shoulder: wave 3/A.
The first touch on the neckline: wave 4/B
Head: wave 5/C
The second touch on the neckline: wave A/1
The right shoulder: wave B/2
The ending point of the right shoulder: wave C/3

2) TrianglesFree nse elliottwave triangle calls

These are the most commonly used triangle patterns. In this motion, we are going to understand the triangle in terms of the Elliot wave. We’ll be talking about the classical triangle pattern in an upcoming educational series.

A triangle forms in corrective waves. There are Four corrective waves in Elliott wave theory. The corrective waves are 2,4, B, and X.
There are four waves in a triangle which are A, B, C, D, E.
The starting point of wave A of the triangle is the ending point of impulsive wave 1/3/A/W. After the completion of wave E of wave 1/3/A/W, the Impulsive wave will initiate.

3) Double Top/Bottom:Free elliottwave educational analysis

In the chart, you can sometimes see the stock price fluctuations. The stock price fell back after reaching the highest price. After some sorting, it rose again to near the previous stock price level and then fell back. Two “normally highs” The high point is formed on the circuit diagram and will not be seen again in the short term.

Wave Count:free nse elliottwave doubletop & bottom count

In a Bull market, The first Top of the pattern represents the completion of the impulsive wave. The ending point of the Impulsive wave is the starting point of the corrective wave.
I started the wave count from the first top and labeled it as A, B, and C waves.

In a Bear Market, The first bottom of the pattern represents the completion of the impulsive wave. The ending point of the Impulsive wave is the starting point of the corrective wave.
I started the wave count from the first bottom and labeled it as A, B, and C waves.
After wave C is complete, we can ride the impulsive waves.

Good Morning with World Markets

money is one of the ways we can turn the dreams we have into the reality we live. Without enough money, or a true scarcity of it, life can feel miserable. But when you have money in your pocket, does everything automatically get better? I think we all know the answer.

Money can’t change who we are. All it does is magnify our true natures. If you’re mean and selfish, you have more to be mean and selfish with. If you’re grateful and loving, you have more to appreciate and give.

Take a moment and think back to the financial meltdown of 2008. Trillions of dollars of stock and home values evaporated into thin air. Millions of jobs were lost in a matter of months. What did you experience? How did it hit you? How did it affect your family? How about your friends? Some of us reacted with fear, some with anger, some with resignation, some with resolve. All these responses were not about money, but about us. These events shined a light on what money really means to us. What power we give it. Whether we let money control us, or whether we take control of it.

Wyckoff Chart Reading

Chart reading

The Wyck­off Method is one of the four time­less approaches to mar­ket analy­sis (the other three being Dow The­ory, Shabacker’s chart pat­terns, Elliott Wave The­ory and Gann’s swing trad­ing approach). It was devel­oped in the early part of the 20th Cen­tury and has been con­tin­u­ously refined through the present day. The Wyck­off Method is a vital, clas­sic approach to trad­ing which reads the mar­ket through price bars and vol­ume. Although tech­ni­cal indi­ca­tors may be used, they are unnec­es­sary under the Wyck­off Method.

Richard D. Wyck­off was a Wall Street bro­ker and trader in the early part of the 20th Cen­tury. Wyck­off was a bro­ker and wit­nessed the oper­a­tions of the largest traders of his day first hand as an ‘insider’ and learned to trans­late their activ­i­ties in the ticker tape and bar charts. As he watched traders and investors make poor trad­ing deci­sions based on rumor, opin­ion and guess­work, he wrote a newslet­ter that quickly became so widely read on Wall Street that it would often affect stock prices. He later wrote courses for traders and books on tape read­ing (includ­ing the first day trader’s man­ual) and his expe­ri­ences on the Street.

The Wyck­off Method has been used by astute traders for nearly 80 years. It is a com­plete method for under­stand­ing and trad­ing the mar­kets. It is used effec­tively by day traders, swing traders and investors in all mar­kets includ­ing equi­ties, com­modi­ties, index futures and FX with equal suc­cess. Many of today’s top mar­ket tech­ni­cians acknowl­edge Wyck­off as the basis for their under­stand­ing of the mar­kets, and the Method has spawned spin-offs such as VSA.

Dr. Gary Day­ton is an expert in the Wyck­off Method. He has stud­ied and applied Wyck­off for the past decade and has been men­tored by an acknowl­edged Wyck­off mas­ter. Dr. Gary is also an out­stand­ing edu­ca­tor of the Method who con­veys the Wyck­off Method and prin­ci­ples in a sim­ple and con­cise man­ner eas­ily under­stood by his students.

Qualities required to be successful trader

sucess or failure

Many people take to trading in the mistaken belief that it is the simplest way of making money. Far from it, I believe it is the easiest way of losing money. There is an old Wall Street adage, that “the easiest way of making a small fortune in the markets is having a large fortune”. This game is by no means for the faint hearted. And, this battle is not won or lost during trading hours but before the markets open but through a disciplined approach to trading.

1. A successful trader has a trading plan and does his homework diligently

2. A successful trader avoids overtrading

3. A successful trader does not get unnerved by losses

4. A successful trader tries to capture the large market moves

5. A successful trader always keeps learning

6. A successful trader always tries to make some money with

      less risky strategies as well

Many new traders are taken out of the trading game through bad mental practices. Here are some things that top money managers have shared through interviews and books that may help traders who are making mental mistakes in their trading.

Ten Powerful Psychological Traits of the Rich Trader

  1. They have the ability to admit they were wrong and get out of a trade. They know the place where price proves them wrong.
  2. They have the ability to not only close a losing trade but reverse and go in the other direction when it is called for.
  3. The rich trader is not trying to prove anything about themselves they are focused on making money.
  4. They do not fall in love with an idea, currency, commodity, or stock they will make trades based on price action.
  5. Rich traders know that the market action is their ultimate boss regardless of their opinions.
  6. No matter how sure they are about a trade they still ALWAYS manage the risk.
  7. Rich traders get more aggressive when winning and trade smaller or take a break during a losing streak.
  8. A great trader is one that can admit to anyone that they were wrong.
  9. Rich traders do not believe their own hype, they know they can not really predict the future they can only react to current reality and the probabilities.
  10. Rich traders love what they do, win or lose.

When you are trading like that, it is hard to be beaten. Time is your friend.
