I am combining 2 schools of thought for my analysis. First very basic trend lines. I use a higher time frame to "set my trade boundaries." Then I look for Elliot Wave trends within. First Wave is long, Second corrective wave cannot be longer than #1, Third wave pushes higher. 4th cannot be lower than #2 and finally the Fifth wave is the longest ending the pattern. The Elliot wave analysis is an indicator within trend view. Very reliable. I have had excellent results.
