What Happens After The 5th Elliot Wave?

OANDA:GBPUSD   British Pound / U.S. Dollar
What is Elliot Wave Theory? The Elliott Wave Principle is a form of technical analysis that is used to analyze market cycles and forecast market trends by identifying the impulses and corrections of market structure. A trader can identify trends by identifying extremes in investor psychology, highs and lows in prices, and much more.
The Elliot Waves are as follows:
1: Impulse Wave
2: Correction
3: Impulse Wave
4: Correction
5: Impulse Wave
A: Impulse Wave + Complex Correction (Wave A usually drops to the previous fourth wave (Wave 4)
B: Correction
C: Impulse (Once wave c is over, it is highly likely the next move is a wave that overcomes the entire a-b-c sequence.)

So what comes after the 5th Wave? What kind of psychologic factors could be taking place during this wave? Leave your thoughts below!

@Mayfair_Ventures I see 5 waves on smaller time frames all the time. in a weakening market, the drop comes right at the correction , for S&P about 3717 and will dip at LEAST into the 3rd waves ranges

@TheBadMrFox, Yes the 5 waves are usually impulsive and then 3 correctives. It's the Elliott pattern over & over again. The post above, was to do with the mindset and if you click into the link it shows the waves in terms of where the mindset is at. 👍
