The Pattern

These are the different waves. It begins with the 5 waves, going up. And ends with the 3 corrective waves going down. Although they waves not alwyas adhere to the up or down of their category.

These waves can be applicable to charts on different timeframes and thus the sizes or 'degrees' of these waves. An they have all have different names. On a chart the waves inside these can all be indicated with numbers, numerals and letters:
