Exxon Mobil : An Elliott Wave Theory Pattern To Perfection

The Elliott Wave Theory is based on the idea that the market advances in 5 waves and pullback in 3 waves. The idea has become very famous and millions of traders around the world practice it. We at Elliott Wave Forecast have been introducing new ideas to make the theory better. We developed a system in which we look at the market in corrective sequences of 3-7-11. These numbers in turn also have 3-7-11 in each sub sequence. Thus, we have a full corrective sequence of 3-7-11-15-19-23 … into the infinity. Let’s take a look at XOM (Exxon Mobil ) chart which shows a clear 5 waves or swings advance since the all-time low.

We want to make it clear that when we say 5 waves, they normally refer to the Elliott Wave 5 waves impulse / diagonal structure. However, when we say 5 swings, this can be part of a 7 swing corrective sequence (WXY). $XOM looks to rally in 5 waves (impulse) from all-time low. However, what’s interesting is that soon the stock will reach an area in which 7 swings can be complete. This area is the blue box area and it can provide an opportunity for a nice bounce or another 5 waves higher. The chart below shows 2 sequences; the lower degree in blue color and higher degree in black color. In the blue (lower) degree we will get 7 swings and in the black (higher) degree, we will see 3 swings.

Exxon Mobil ($XOM) Weekly Sequence Chart



Understanding how we trade is simple. There is a right side which in this case is the long side. The reason is because of the 5 waves advance since all time lows. Traders should buy pullback in the sequence of 3, 7, or 11 swing. We need to understand that nobody knows for sure how deep the pullback is and when the trend will renew. Consequently, understanding how corrective pullback forms in 3-7-11 sequences is the key. The chart below shows a double three Elliott Wave structure (WXY) which is by definition a 7 swing. The structure in a simple way is the combination of 2 sets of ABC connected by a 3 waves structure.
