In this webinar recording, we assessed a corrective pattern in Elliott Wave Theory that is a difficult one to trade, the flat.
There are three types of flat patterns:
- Irregular or expanded
We looked at each of the three idealized patterns above. Then, we used EUR/USD as a case study it is illustrated some of the guidelines used in flats.
Lastly, we discussed how to trade flats. Generally, they are a tough pattern to anticipate as they chew up more time than price. Range traders may find them especially interesting. I typically wait and try to anticipate the termination of the flat to trade as the ensuing trend could be strong.
We will continue the educational video series next week on Tuesday. Register for the live event here.
