Ralph Nelson Elliott was one of the first people to believe that he could predict the stock market by studying recurring price patterns in a price series. Elliott wave theory states that wave patterns of different scales repeat and overlap each other, creating complex wave patterns. If the harmonic pattern focuses squarely on the short five-point patterns, the wave theory, developed by Ralph Nelson Elliott, describes how the financial market evolves to meet equilibrium with recurring wave patterns, fractal equilibrium waves. The advantage of Elliott Wave Theory is that it is comprehensive as the theory provides multiple trading entries in different market conditions. Using Elliott Wave Theory, traders can perform both momentum trading and retracement trading. One of the disadvantages of Elliott Wave Theory is that it is more complex compared to other trading techniques. In addition, there are still some loose ends in detecting Elliott wave patterns. For this reason, many traders are highly critical of the lack of scientific methods for Elliott Wave counting.
The Elliott Wave Theory has received a lot of attention from many traders and investors for several decades. Elliott Wave Theory is a useful technique for dealing with the financial market with the dominant balanced fractal wave process. For the financial market with strong equilibrium wave operation (2 second abbreviation, 3 research and development and 4 y columns in the price patterns table), traders should use an alternative methodology on Elliott wave techniques because Elliott waves theory is not intended to deal with the wave process. Seasonal or other cyclical fluctuations can be better handled with other techniques. For example, seasonal exponential smoothing, Fourier transform, principal component analysis, or wavelet transform might do better for such a case. Some literature review and empirical research can yield useful insight into which market trader can best trade with Elliott Wave Theory. In our book we will introduce the basics of wave theory. At the same time, we will introduce a Pattern and Pattern approach towards more scientific wave counting for traders.

EFW Analytics provides rich and fully visible chart trading patterns. In the hypothetical trading strategy, you will be looking at the combined signal from the overlayed pattern + EFW channel or the overlapped pattern + overlayed channel. In addition, you can implement various trading strategies in reversal and breakout mode. You can also run two different time frames on one chart to enforce your trading decision. Voice alert, email and push notification are generated within the indicator.
