The Elliott rules for an Impulse are:

• · Wave 1 must itself be an Impulse or a Leading Diagonal pattern.
• · Wave 2 can be any corrective Elliott Wave pattern except a Triangle.
• · No part of Wave 2 can retrace more than 100% of Wave 1.
• · Wave 3 must be an Impulse.
• · Wave 3 must be longer than Wave 2 by price.
• · Wave 4 can be any corrective Elliott Wave pattern.
• · Waves 2 and 4 cannot overlap (share common price area).
• · Wave 5 must be an Impulse or an Ending Diagonal.
• · Wave 5 must be at least 70% of the length of Wave 4 by price.
• · Wave 3 must never be the shortest by price when compared to Waves 1 & 5.

The Elliott Wave rules governing Diagonals are as follows:

• · Diagonals move within two converging channel lines.
• · Wave 1 of a Leading Diagonal is an Impulse or a Leading Diagonal.
• · Waves 1, 3 and 5 of an Ending Diagonal are always a Zigzag family pattern.
• · Wave 2 may be any corrective pattern except a Triangle.
• · Wave 2 is never longer than Wave 1 by price.
• · Wave 3 of a Leading Diagonal is an Impulse.
• · Wave 3 is always greater than Wave 2 by price.
• · Wave 4 may be any corrective pattern.
• · Waves 2 and 4 must share some common price territory (must overlap).
• · Wave 5 of a Leading Diagonal is either an Impulse or Ending Diagonal.
• · Wave 5 must be at least 50% of Wave 4 by price.
• · Wave 3 must not be shortest by price when compared with Waves 1 and 5.

Rules for Zigzags:

• · Wave A must be an Impulse or a Leading Diagonal.
• · Wave B can only be a corrective pattern.
• · Wave B must be shorter than Wave A by price distance.
• · Wave C must be an Impulse or an Ending Diagonal.
• · Wave C may not be an Ending Diagonal if Wave A is a Leading Diagonal.

Rules for Double and Triple Zigzags:

• · Wave W must be a Zigzag.
• · Wave X can be any correction except an Expanding Triangle.
• · Wave X must be smaller than wave W by price.
• · Wave Y must be a Zigzag.
• · Wave Y must be equal to or longer than Wave X by price.
• · Wave XX can be any correction except an Expanding Triangle.
• · Wave XX must be smaller than Wave Y by price.
• · Wave Z must be a Zigzag.
• · Wave Z must be equal to or larger than Wave XX by price.

Rules for Flats:

• · Wave A can be any corrective pattern.
• · Wave B can be any corrective pattern except a Triangle.
• · Wave B must retrace Wave A by at least 50% (by price).
• · Wave B must be less than twice the price length of Wave A.
• · Wave C can only be an Impulse or an Ending Diagonal.
• · Wave C must be no more than 3 times the price length of Wave A.
• · Wave C must be no longer than twice the price distance of both Waves A and B.
• · Wave C must share some common price territory with Wave A.

Rules for Double and Triple Sideways Patterns:

• · Wave W may be any corrective pattern except a Triangle, or a Double or Triple pattern.
• · Wave X may be any corrective pattern except a Triangle, or a Double or Triple pattern.
• · Minimum Wave X retracement is 50% of Wave W.
• · Maximum retracement of Wave X on Wave W is 400%.
• · Wave Y may be any corrective pattern except a Double or Triple pattern.
• · Wave Y must be greater than Wave X by price except if it is a Triangle.
• · Wave XX may be any corrective pattern except a Triangle, or a Double or Triple pattern.
• · Minimum XX wave retracement is 50% of Y.
• · Maximum retracement of Wave XX on Wave Y is 400%.
• · Wave Z may be any corrective pattern except a Double or Triple pattern. However Z cannot be a Zigzag if Y is a Zigzag.
• · Wave Z must be greater than Wave XX by price.

The Rules for Contracting Triangles are as follows:

• · Wave A can only be a Zigzag, Double or Triple Zigzag, or a Flat pattern.
• · Wave B can only be a Zigzag, Double or Triple Zigzag pattern.
• · Wave C and D can be any corrective pattern except a Triangle.
• · Waves A, B, C and D must move within or close to within the A-C & B-D channel lines.
• · The intersection of the channel lines must occur beyond the end of Wave E.
• · The channel lines must converge. They cannot be parallel.
• · One of the channel lines may be horizontal.
• · Wave E can be a Zigzag, Double or Triple Zigzag, or a Contracting Triangle.
• · Wave E must be less than Wave D by price, and Wave E must be more than 20% of Wave D by price.
• · Either Wave A or Wave B must be the longest wave by price.
• · Wave E must end in the price territory of A.
• · Wave E must move within or close to within the B-D channel line.

The Rules for Expanding Triangles are as follows:

• · All five waves must be Zigzag, Double or Triple Zigzag patterns.
• · Wave B must be shorter than Wave C by price, but more than 40% of Wave C by price.
• · Waves A, B, C and D must move within, or close to within,the A-C & B-D channel lines.
• · Wave C must be shorter than Wave D by price, but more than 40% of Wave D by price.
• · Wave A must move within, or close to within, the A-C channel line.
• · The intersection of the channel lines must occur before the beginning of Wave A.
• · The channel lines must diverge. They cannot be parallel.
• · Neither channel line may be horizontal.
• · Wave E must be longer than D, and D must be greater than 40% of Wave E by price.
• · Either A or B will be the shortest wave by price.
• · Wave E must end in the price territory of A
• · Wave E must move within, or close to within, the B-D channel line.
