In this technical blog we’re going to take a quick look at the Elliott Wave charts of XLP ETF published in members area of the Elliottwave-Forecast . As our members know, XLP is showing impulsive bullish sequences in the cycle from the March 2020 (47.65) low. Recently we got short term pull back that has unfolded as Elliott Wave Double Three pattern that has given us opportunity to enter long trades. In further text we’re going to explain the forecast and Elliott Wave Pattern and trading strategy.
Before we take a look at the real market example, let’s explain Elliott Wave Double Three pattern.
Elliott Wave Double Three Pattern
Double three is the common pattern in the market these days, also known as 7 swing structure. It’s a reliable pattern which is giving us good trading entries with clearly defined invalidation levels and target areas.
The picture below presents what Elliott Wave Double Three pattern looks like. It has (W),(X),(Y) labeling and 3,3,3 inner structure, which means all of these 3 legs are corrective sequences. Each (W) and (Y) are made of 3 swings , they’re having A,B,C structure in lower degree, or alternatively they could have W,X,Y labeling.

Current view suggests pull back ((4)) black is unfolding as Elliott Wave double three pattern with inner labeling: (W)(X)(Y) blue. As we can see on the chart below each leg has corrective sequences. The price has slightly missed equal legs at 63.1. We believe another marginal push down can be seen toward blue box area 63.1-60.79. Trading strategy remains buying the dips at the extreme zone, if it gets reached. As the main trend is bullish buyers should appear at the blue box for a 3 waves bounce at least. Once bounce reaches 50 fibs against the middle pivot (X) blue , we should make long positions risk free.
