## What is an ending diagonal in Elliott Wave?

An ending diagonal is a special type of wave that occurs primarily in the fifth wave position at times when the preceding move has gone “too far too fast,” as Elliott put it. A very small percentage of ending diagonals appear in the C wave position of A-B- C formations.

**What is ending diagonal?**

The ending diagonal is the end of an impulse or zigzag. This pattern consists of zigzags or more complex correction formations. A duration of a correction subsequent to a diagonal depends on a pattern’s position in a whole wave count.

### What happens after an ending diagonal?

Ending Diagonals The ending diagonal is a special type of wave that occurs in Wave 5 of an impulse, or the last wave of a correction pattern – Wave C of an A, B, C correction. All five of the waves of an ending diagonal break down to only three waves each, indicating exhaustion of the larger degree trend.

**What happens at the end of Elliott Wave?**

Wave 5 is the final wave of the whole sequence, a terminal wave. Therefore, a deeper correction is likely to take hold. Many times, once a fifth wave is in place, expect to see an eventual correction of the entire fifth wave. Look for an initial target of the previous wave 4 and possibly lower levels.

## How do you find the end of a diagonal?

An ending diagonal is an easily discernible wave pattern because it looks like a rising (or falling) wedge. Specifically, it is a five-wave overlapping pattern wherein each wave subdivides into three smaller waves. Also, trendlines connecting the extremes of waves one and three, and two and four, often converge.

**Can wave 3 be a diagonal?**

In a leading diagonal, waves 1, 3, and 5 are all impulsive or all corrective waves in the form of zigzags. Waves 2 and 4 are always zigzag patterns.

### Can wave B be a triangle?

Wave two of an impulse can’t be a triangle. Waves A, B and C are usually zigzags, double zigzags, triple zigzags (that’s rare), double and triple threes. Waves D and E could be triangles themselves.

**Can wave 5 be lower than Wave 3?**

In a diagonal, in fact, wave 4 almost always enters in the price territory of wave 1. A diagonal is typically contracting but, in rare oc- casions, expanding. In the contracting variety, wave 3 is shorter than wave 1, wave 5 is shorter than wave 3, and wave 4 is shorter than wave 2.

## Can wave C be an ending diagonal?

An ending diagonal is a type of impulsive motive wave in Elliott Wave Theory that will be found in the subdivision of fifth waves or whole C waves in a structure. An ending diagonal C wave or 5th wave commonly shows an obvious wedge shape with an overlapping wave 1 and wave 4.

**How do you calculate the diagonal of a triangle?**

To find the length of the diagonal (or hypotenuse) of a right triangle, substitute the lengths of the two perpendicular sides into the formula a2 + b2 = c2, where a and b are the lengths of the perpendicular sides and c is the length of the hypotenuse.

### What is ABC in Elliott Wave?

Elliott Wave Theory, or ABC wave theory, is a term for three-wave counter trend price movement. Here, wave A is the first price wave that is against the trend of the entire market. B wave is a corrective wave for wave A. Wave C shows the final price move to complete the counter trend price move.

**What is Elliott Wave count?**

Elliott Wave Theory Interpretation The Elliott Wave Theory is interpreted as follows: Five waves move in the direction of the main trend, followed by three waves in a correction (totaling a 5-3 move). This 5-3 move then becomes two subdivisions of the next higher wave move.

## Where to find an ending diagonal in Elliott wave theory?

An ending diagonal is a type of impulsive motive wave in Elliott Wave Theory that will be found in the subdivision of fifth waves or whole C waves in a structure.

**When did Elliott introduce us to diagonal patterns?**

In R.N.Elliott’s original treatise of The Wave Principle (1938), he introduces us to diagonal patterns for the first time on page 21.

### What does an ending diagonal wave look like?

An ending diagonal is an easily discernible wave pattern because it looks like a rising (or falling) wedge. Specifically, it is a five-wave overlapping pattern wherein each wave subdivides into three smaller waves. Also, trendlines connecting the extremes of waves one and three, and two and four, often converge.

**What are the two types of Elliott wave?**

Watch Jeffrey Kennedy’s video to learn more about this dynamic Elliott wave pattern. There are two major types of Elliott wave structures — motive and corrective. Within these two categories, motive waves include impulse waves and ending diagonals. Zigzags, flats and triangles are all corrective wave patterns.
