Now, let’s take a look what Elliott Wave Flat Pattern looks like in the real market
The stock has made 5 waves down from the 294.26 peak and now correcting that cycle. Current view suggests that $MSFT is giving us recovery against the 294.26 peak that is unfolding as Irregular Flat Pattern.  When we downgrade charts to lower time frames , we can see waves inner subdivisions of A and B red are having corrective sequences.  Wave B  has broken the starting point of  A  while C  has broken ending point of  A which is characteristic of Irregular flat.  Wave C red leg should complete as 5 waves soon. We expect (B) blue recovery to complete around 264.2-267.8 area as Flat structure.

Microsoft stock ended (B) blue recovery at 267.39 high and made turn lower as we expected. Eventually the price has broken previous low (A) blue which was important confirmation that bears are taking control. Further weakness is expected in the stock as far as pivot at (B) blue peak( 267.39) holds. Short term cycle from that high completed as 5 waves- leading diagonal. It is labeled as 1 red which is first leg of wave (C) blue. We expect bounce in 3 waves in 2 red, before further drop takes place.
