GOLD Elliott Wave Technical Analysis
| Tue, Nov 5, 2013
Yesterday’s analysis expected downwards movement to a minimum of 1,308 before
upwards movement. Price moved lower as expected, reaching down to 1,305.97.
The corrective structure of minute wave b is still incomplete.
The structure for primary wave 4 cannot be a flat correction, because what
would be the B wave is well less than 90% of what would be the A wave. That
is why I have labeled it as a double.
Because intermediate wave (X) is quite shallow I would expect primary wave
4 is most likely a double zigzag rather than a double combination. Double combinations
move price sideways and their X waves are usually deeper than this one is.
Double zigzags trend against the main direction, and their purpose is to deepen
a correction when the first zigzag did not take price deep enough. So I will
be expecting intermediate wave (Y) to subdivide as a zigzag and to take price
comfortably above 1,433.83. It should last about 35 to 45 days or sessions
Within the zigzag of intermediate wave (Y) minor wave B may not move beyond
the start of minor wave A. This wave count is invalidated with movement below
The structure of minuette wave b is closer to completion, but it is still
Minuette wave (b) is a 101% correction of minuette wave (a) which indicates
a regular flat is unfolding for minute wave b. Regular flats most commonly
have C waves which are close to equality with A waves. I would expect minuette
wave (c) to overshoot the parallel channel slightly.
Minuette wave (b) is now a complete zigzag. Within it subminuette wave c is
0.71 short of 1.618 the length of subminuette wave a.
The final wave upward of minuette wave (c) needs to unfold as a five wave
structure. Minuette wave (c) is highly likely to make a new high above the
end of minuette wave (a) at 1,322.68 to avoid a truncation and a very rare
running flat. At 1,323 minuette wave (c) would reach just over equality with
minuette wave (a).
Alternate Daily Wave Count
It is possible that a large contracting triangle is unfolding for primary
wave 4, but it has a lower probability than the main wave count. Double zigzags
and combinations are in my experience more common structures than triangles.
However, triangles are not rare, they are just less common.
Triangles are very tricky structures to analyse. I normally only consider
them when they show themselves clearly, which is close to the end of the structure.
At this stage within a possible triangle only waves A and B would be complete.
One of the five subwaves should subdivide into a double zigzag, be more time
consuming, and have deeper corrections than the other subwaves.
Within a contracting triangle intermediate wave (C) may not move beyond the
end of intermediate wave (A), and intermediate wave (D) may not move beyond
the end of intermediate wave (B).
Within a barrier triangle intermediate wave (D) should end about the same
level as intermediate wave (B), which in practicality means it may move slightly
lower than 1,251.76. As long as the B-D trend line remains flat.
The triangle is invalidated with any movement above 1,438.83, or with much
movement below 1,251.76.

Elliott wave is one of the more difficult and complicated technical analysis
tools. When done right it can be uncannily accurate.
I have been using the Elliott wave principle to analyse up to five markets
a day since 2008. I began Elliott Wave Forex (originally ForexInfo.us) in
2009 to provide daily analysis of EURUSD and GBPUSD, then I began Elliott
Wave Stock Market in 2010. Elliott Wave Gold began in August, 2013. Currently
I provide daily analysis of Gold on this site, and daily analysis of the
S&P 500 on Elliott Wave Stock Market for its members.
I have a science background (BSc) which has trained me to think logically
and be evidence focussed. Over the years I have seen no market movement which
does not fit into the clear and restrictive rules for Elliott wave structures.
I have members who are fund managers, institutional investors and professional
If you want to learn how to apply the Elliott wave principle to any market
my analysis service is designed to teach you, daily, how to do this.
