Bottom of Wave C is lower than Bottom of Wave A. • Wave A and C can be divided into 5 sub waves. Wave B can be divided into 3 waves. • Complex corrections can take the form of double or triple zigzags joined by X waves. © StockStream LLP All about investments. - 12 -
  13. 13. Flats • This is a 3 Wave corrective pattern. • Wave B ends close to the beginning of Wave A and Wave C ends close to the end of Wave A. • Waves A and B are in 3 waves. Wave C is in 5 waves. • Complex corrections can take the form of double or triple flats or combinations of flats and other corrective patterns joined by X waves. © StockStream LLP All about investments. - 13 -
