Subwave A of Wave 3 up

Completion of wave 1 up and 2 down creates very strong bullish argument. Subwave C of 1 makes a higher high over the top of the subwave A of 1. And Subwave C is terminated making higher low being unable even to reach the previous low at the starting point of the wave 1 up. After bears give up being unable to push the price to a lower low bulls counter attack and push the price back up to its latest highs in a subwave A of the wave 3. It is impossible to predict whether subwave A of 3 will stall at the highs established by previous rally in the wave 1 or will be strong enough to establish a new higher high.


  • Wave A of 3 has to be subdivided into five small waves i, ii, iii, iv and v
  • Subwave A of 3 may or may not make a new higher high over the top of preceding rally in wave 1 up
  • Subwave A of 3 rarely becomes a strong rally, it builds a base for the stronger rally in subwave C of 3
