The easiest segment of an Elliott wave pattern is the ending segment or last segment. A smarter or more advanced Elliott wave analyst can easily spot the first segment as it is developing, but almost every wave analyst can recognize the last segment.
One of my favourite sports is the Formula One. Many will accept that it becomes easier to predict the race winner as the last lap kicks off. Similarly to the F1's last lap, it is easier to spot and trade more profitably an Elliott wave pattern's last segment.
The C-wave of a zigzag pattern is another easy Elliott wave pattern. The same steps apply as for the flat correction pattern. At the end of the B minor wave of a zigzag pattern, one will get ready to time the market at the start of the C-wave.
Please do all other verification including the fundamental analysis. Also never go ahead of the price-action, and do not assume anything. The markets love to reward patient and defensive investors.
It is quite easy to spot the C minor wave of a zigzag pattern because of its structure 5, 3, 5. The internal waves of a zigzag pattern are usually visible (not hidden), but be aware that both its A and C minor waves can be a sharp move.
