Elliot Wave - Wave 5, more often than not, goes beyond or “breaks through” the trend

Hey babies

Love the explanations here especially about Elliot Waves which cleared up my confusion about the differences of Waves 2 & 4 with correction waves. (answered exactly what I was looking for!)

There was one part I didn’t get though if anyone could help explain

[ul]

[/li][li]Wave 5, more often than not, goes beyond or “breaks through” the trend line drawn off Wave 3 parallel to a trend line connecting the start of Waves 3 and 5.

^I can’t seem to picture that in my head.

Also in this picture below, it talks about a correction pattern forming of the end of what looks like a wave 5 of a downward trend. But the trend continues downwards. Isn’t wave 5 the last wave before ABC takes place. So if the trend continued downwards, then that wouldn’t be wave 5 anymore and the picture would have to be relabeled right? Am I correct in that or is that (wave 6?)


sanks! :slight_smile:
