The trade entered during the first hour of the trading session on the 20th November and hit our 5th wave Target on the 25th November
Our Stocks swing trading 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 resistance in the Amber Pullback zone, which indicates an 80% probability that the 5th Wave will go on and make a new Low in this current Bearish trend. The Pullback zones are part of our Elliott Wave Indicator Suite. The original chart shown below shows the setup with a Short entry price of $16.96 with Stop above the Wave 4 low at $17.75. Our automated 5th Wave Target zone in Blue was around the $15.60 price for this potential Short Swing trade, giving a Risk to Reward of 1:1.8
