Our TradeTheFifth strategy involves trading the 5th Wave of the Elliott Wave sequence. The 5th Wave is the highest probability move in a “with trend” trade. The Wave 4 in this case pulled back and found initial support in the Green Pullback zone. Therefore indicating an 85% 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 before the trade triggered when the trade was set up before the markets opened on the 22nd Feb 2018. Long entry price of $26.02 with Stop below above the Wave 4 low at $25.49. Our automated 5th Wave Target level in Blue was around the $26.90 level for this long trade. Therefore giving a 1:1.6 Risk to Reward.
