Daily Wolfe Wave to 1237
This is a classic Wolfe Wave on the daily ES chart. Wolfe Waves are formed by a specific, five wave sequence. I’ve highlighted the key waves here. This one has all the characteristices of a valid Wolfe Wave.

Wolfe Waves can be uncanny in their ability to highlight turns in the market and in their projections. Like all trading, they are not mechanical and there are several characteristics and nuances which must be mastered to trade well. Nonetheless, it will be fun to watch this one. The Wolfe Wave is totally unrelated to Wyckoff’s Wave.
