Subwave A of Wave 3 up
Watch Video Lesson



Wave 4  is a bearish reaction to a completed super strong rally in Wave 3 up. Every completed bullish A-B-C fractal gives birth to a corrective A-B-C move in opposite direction. In majority of cases Wave 4 down is unable to retrace more than 50% of the preceding rally in wave 3 up.

Wave 4 can be structured as any type of Corrective Waves.

After corrective wave 4 down is completed its lowest low marked by the red dot becomes a new main support level for the following corrective wave B of 5. If that new higher low established by the wave 4 gets violated by the next corrective wave we say that the five wave up structure gets invalidated because one of the formal rules is broken.


  • Wave 2 down may be subdivided into subwaves A, B and C but may get more complex following either the Triangle, Double Three or Triple Three structure
  • Wave 4 down should terminate over the low of the preceding corrective wave B of 3 down
  • Low of the wave 4 down becomes a new critical support for the next corrective wave B of 5
