Our wave5trade strategy involves trading the 5th Wave of the Elliott Wave sequence as it is the highest probability move in a “with trend” trade. The Wave 4 in this case pulled back and found final support in the Red Pullback zone, which indicates an 75% probability that the 5th Wave will go on and make a new high in this current Bullish trend. The Pullback zones are part of our Elliott Wave Indicator Suite. The original chart shown below shows the setup with a Long entry price of $77.09 with Stop below the Wave 4 low at $70.49. Our automated 5th Wave Target level in Blue was around the $89 level for this Long trade, giving a 1:1.8 Risk to Reward.
Below this chart is how the trade went and chart showing exit when price went through our automated target zone.
SRPT Stocks Trading Journal – What Happened Next
Tip-Toe entry into this Long after a strong move away from the Wave 4 low and out of the 6/4 MA High (Green MA on Chart Below) on 09 April 2018. Momentum continued well over the next three trading days attempting to break throught he previous wave 3 high. A sustained pull back was then apparent for the next week or so leading to earnings. Initial reaction to earnings was muted due to negative market conditions. But as soon as we had a stong Bullish day the price had a massive move on Friday 04 May hitting the 5th wave target.
This low volume pullback is typical ahead of earnings, but with a 5th wave trade on the Daily timeframe, a trader must take into account the overall strong Bullish trend. Patience was key to the success of this trade and as soon as we go the desired move and target was hit, profit was taken at 1.8% on Trading Account Balance.
The chart below shows the exit for this typical 5th wave swing trade over 18 days using our Elliott Wave indicator suite. Although the final move is not normal, the outcome and time taken was typical of a 5th wave move on the Daily timeframe. (Click on the image to enlarge in another window)
