Steve: I will admit that I am just relearning MTP so I am in simulation mode. BUT, I have read your entire manual, listened to many of the webinars, read all your Advanced Blogs and applied what you have been teaching. I got the TS3 short and then reversed on the DP which even had a VSA for added confirmation!!!! I used the ATR stop since the oscillator went through the band so I got stopped out, but what I find incredible is that price eventually went to the DP profit target zone and reversed again!!!! I feel that even I could have written your blog today because of how well you teach. Thanks for your great instruction and for answering all of my questions. Again a Million Thanks for your great education!!!!!!!!!!

Wave (5) is the final leg in the direction of the dominant trend. The news is almost universally positive and everyone is bullish. Unfortunately, this is when many average investors finally buy in, right before the top. Volume is often lower in Wave (5) than in Wave (3), and many momentum indicators start to show divergences (prices reach a new high but the indicators do not reach a new peak).
As such, Elliott Wave (5) is the final leg before the unltimate top.
