Before we take a look at the real market example, let’s explain Elliott Wave Zigzag.

Elliott Wave Zigzag is the most popular corrective pattern in Elliott Wave theory . It’s made of 3 swings which have 5-3-5 inner structure. Inner swings are labeled as A,B,C where A =5 waves, B=3 waves and C=5 waves. That means A and C can be either impulsive waves or diagonals. (Leading Diagonal in case of wave A or Ending in case of wave C) . Waves A and C must meet all conditions of being 5 wave structure, such as: having RSI divergency between wave subdivisions, ideal Fibonacci extensions and ideal retracements.

Wave (X) blue correction can be in progress as Elliott Wave Zig Zag pattern. First leg of the (X) bounce has subdivision in 5 waves. Then we got 3 waves pull back B red . Now ideally doing 5 waves up in C red. We expect to see more short term strength in SP Futures. Approximate area where (X) blue connector can complete comes at the A-B red equal legs : 4424.3-4488.8. From that zone we expect to see another leg down. There is no incomplete bearish sequences at the moment, and we don’t recommend selling.
