Elliott waves

Recommended Posts

All trading involves risk. Losses can exceed deposits.

Hi all


The highly requested Elliott Waves tool has now been added to our new platform charts.


You’ll find this in the drawing menu at the top of the chart, or by right-clicking on a chart:

You can then select five points on the chart to form the drawing.


Do you like this tool or have any additions you’d like to see? Let me know below.

Great to see this new feature added, and it is really easy to use. It would be really helpful to also have an A-B-C feature as well so we can chart  counter trend moves as well. Also an 1-2-3-4-5 at a lesser degree, ie: i - ii - iii - iv - v would also be a useful feature so we can chart the sub-waves within the main waves.  Thanks.

The 1-2-3-4-5 and A-B-C features are available on the current platform. Right click on the chart and under "drawings" you have two Elliot wave drawing tools.


They haven't yet added functionality to draw Elliot Waves at different degrees.

    • I think those swings were tradeable with a reduced position size on the Nikkei which tends to respect weekly pivots during European and American trading hours.
    • @dmedin, I don't know the answer but there may be others on the IG Community that are more knowledgable than me or even use EWT both successfully and are hugely profitable applying it. They may be aware of certain assets where the probabilities of using EWT are in their favour due to confirmed historical evidence. There may well be evidence that certain assets adhere to EWT more than others on a historical basis. Of course that does not guarantee that the assets will do so in the future but it just increases the odds and the likelihood of it occurring again.  Just because I don't have the knowledge or evidence does not mean such assets do not exist where the application of EWT would be greatly increase your chances of successful and profitable trades. I personally do not use or apply EWT to my trading and it has not hindered me. I would be interested in knowing which assets adhere to EWT more than others and what the percentages are. For example are there any assets which adhere to EWT historically over 70%? Let us put Natural Gas to one side for the moment as I personally think due to the extreme volatility you would have to be a supreme EWT technician to be able to consistently make profitable trades on Natural Gas using EWT. If you put NG to one side then are there any other assets which say adhere to EWT historically from say 50% - 70% of the time? I do not know the answer but if anyone does know then it would be very interesting and helpful to the IG Community, especially for those who are genuinely interested in EWT and applying it to their trading.  Also for those assets which say do adhere to EWT over 50% of the time how does a trader know that it will so on the next trend, next move up or down, etc? How does one establish apart from a failed trade after the event on whether the asset is going to adhere to EWT?
