"Wolfe Waves represent a fight towards an equilibrium price and are
one of the most reliable predictive reversal patterns in existence."
- Bill Wolfe
Wolfe Waves are natural and reliable reversal patterns, present in all markets and timeframes. These waves can manifest having different amplitudes and are difficult to spot. This indicator finds them all.
Amazingly easy to trade
Detect all wolfe waves present in the chart
Trade reliable price reversals in all timeframes
The indicator is non-repainting
This indicator is specially accurate because it waits for a breakout in the wave direction before signaling the trade, and its winning ratio is around 90%.

It implements email/sound/push alerts for trading signals
Enhance your trading activity with the best and most complete Wolfe Waves indicator, just like our customers have already done.
It is a naturally occurring trading pattern present in all financial markets. The pattern is composed of five waves showing supply and demand and a fight towards an equilibrium price. These patterns can develop over short- and long-term time frames such as minutes or weeks and are used to predict where a price is heading and when it will get there.
Anatomy of a Wolfe Wave
If identified correctly, Wolfe waves can be used to accurately predict the scope (equilibrium price) of the underlying security and to anticipate price reversals which are likely to cause big price movements. To identify Wolfe waves, they must have the following characteristics.
Waves 3-4 must stay within the channel created by 1-2
Wave 1-2 equals waves 3-4
Wave 4 is within the channel created by waves 1-2
There is regular time between all waves
Wave 5 exceeds trendline created by waves 1 and 3
How to trade using Wolfe Waves
Wolfe Waves are amazingly easy to trade! The trade must be taken when the price closes above the trendline created by waves 1 and 3, and the last point of the wave should be used as a protective stop-loss.
The PZ Wolfe Waves indicator implements a trading filter which delays the signal until a price-based breakout takes place in the direction of the wave, making trades 99% deterministic and increasing the profit factor.
Because the indicator uses tops and bottoms to draw wolfe waves, the last leg of the wave must always repaint. However, the trading signal is based on the breakout of the trendline created by waves 1 and 3 and therefore trading decisions are deterministic and almost never repaint.

When loading the indicator to any chart, you will be presented with a set of options as input parameters. Don't despair if you think they are too many, because parameters are grouped into self-explanatory blocks. This is what each parameter does.
The indicator is constantly looking for tops and bottoms. The amplitude is the minimal amount of bars where there will not be two tops or two bottoms. Increase the period to see bigger waves or for intraday trading. You can also have several indicators loaded on the chart with different amplitudes.
The strict definition of a Wolfe-Wave decreases the density of trading signals but does not improve its performance. Disable this parameter to see more, but not strict waves.
This parameter controls how many past bars are examined to increase the indicator's performance and minimize memory usage.
This indicator implements a special filter which delays the trading signal until a breakout has taken place in the wave direction. This filter can be enabled/disabled and the amount of bars it uses customized.
