As aerocom wrote below, a leading diagonal can be both, a 3-3-3-3-3 or a 5-3-5-3-5 (p.40 in EWP, or p.88 EWP). But still, this is not my prefered count anyway.

[QUOTE=skinnypuppy;749890]hello there.. :)
first post in the forum.
not exactly an expert on ew. but i was just looking for a place to discuss my gold count and i came across your post.
if you don't mind i'd like to share my views and my count and i'd be extremely happy if i could get some feedback on this count.
my problem with the count above is the (iii) i'm not very comfortable with the 7 wave structure of that wave. i can't get a proper subwave count. also the 5 of the (iii) looks like a 3 wave structure to me.
here's what i propose:
i also have a question about the part shaded in blue. how can a correction wave inside a (iii) have a 5 subwave structure?
I try to show it with the chart below, maybe it'll help you clarify tour take on your own Gold count. But some short comments to your questions:
1. "7 wave structure": Look at it as a 1-2_1-2_1-2-->extensions (see chart). Your question has drawn my attention to a more precise count, thanks!
2. "the 5 of the (iii) looks like a 3 wave structure": Same "solution" but you can count it without extension also, again observe alternation between deep wave 2 and shallow wave 4 (see chart).
3. "how can a correction wave inside a (iii) have a 5 subwave structure?": Try a double zigzag (W-X-Y). It looks very much alike... (the last wave down looks like a very short C-wave, eventually truncated, in your chart).

thanks a ton for your detailed answer. i like this new count a lot. especially the 4 sitting on the 50% works really well. my count is also on a 5. how do you like the micro count here of the 5?
i'm very new to ew counting so please bear with my incessant questions!
You're welcome. Yes your count is very much possible, but if I understand your labeling then maybe it should be labeled like below (??). Right now it is difficult to count all the squiggles (as always). It could well be that the correction is already over, and of course a deeper correction (a wave C of a possible wave 4 yet to unfold completely) may come. I honestly don't know. Below your chart again and and a tentative count of mine ... Good luck!

The USD/CHF Monthly Chart shows a possible skewed triangle taking place....

Hello Traders! I just wanted to share and highlight the short term Elliott Wave charts found within Daily FX done by our Technical Strategist, Jamie Saettele. His Elliott Wave Bias Table highlights 7 other pairs plus Oil and Gold. You may use these as a point of discussion or debate or to generate additional ideas.
Jamie writes: “The NZDUSD has traded to a fresh 2011 low but did carve out a key reversal last Wednesday. Key reversals do have a history of calling turns but the wave count is bearish with a 3rd wave possibly underway from the February high. A drop below 7342 would confirm that the NZDUSD completed wave b of a flat in late 2010 and is headed for an eventual drop below 6560. A negative 20/50 day average cross has registered and these averages are now resistance in the 7600/25 area. The former 4th wave extreme is also resistance at 7655.”
What are your thoughts? Agree? Disagree? Alternate count?

EUR/USD final bear
Is EUR/USD at last beginning its final bear market?
Weekly, 4h, and daily views. Lots of wood to chop yet but bullish momentum is dying fast. Three recent attempts at 1.3860 have failed.
I'm comfortable with a small position with a tight stop above March 1 high of 1.3853. Above there it could easily blow through 1.3860 and test 1.4281. Hope to build it up over the coming weeks and start taking profit around July/August.

Called the end of wave -I- a bit premature in my last post. As of now it looks it might be working on expanding triangle in wave (v) of -I-
03-02-2011, 04:06 PM #42404
Similar to cable after completion of wave -i- expect a pullback in wave -ii-

fasten your seat belts - the bigger slide is beginning any time soon as the euro hit 61.8 fibo projection of the bull flag in the final E wave of a [B] wave triangle suggesting a [C] wave down:
