WAVE A of 5 UP

Wave A of 5  is a bullish reaction to bearish pullback in wave 4 down. When the pullback in wave 4 down fails to break under lows of the preceding correction in wave B of 3  bulls counter attack and push the price back up to the top of the preceding rally in wave 3 up. Wave A of 5 creates a well known “double top” pattern recognized by conventional technical analysts as a sign of impeding bearish reversal.



  • Wave A of 5 has an impulsive structure and subdivided into five smaller waves
  • Wave A of 5 is too weak to make a sustainable break-out over the top of preceding rally in wave 3 up
  • It can stall a little bit under or over the previous top before another pullback in wave B of 5 starts
