EC Stocks Swing Trading Journal – What Happened Next
After a gap up on Monday the 24th September, the price continued to move up through our entry price and the trade was triggered. The price closed near the highs of that first day of the trade and continued to move towards the target throughout the week with great volume. We had false breakout dots form in the overbought zone on the 25th September, indicating a strong Bullish move. (False breakout Stochastic is part of our Elliott Wave Indicator Suite). Managing the trade was relatively simple in this case, as we had strong Bullish momentum from the outset, so after the rejection candle in the fist hour of the 26th September, we placed our trailing stop, just below its low, to protect profits. Then we took profit on Friday as we got into the target zone as didn’t want to carry over the weekend, with a Profit of 2% on the Trading account balance. Showing once again how powerful our Elliott Wave Indicator Suite can be on multiple time frames.
The Chart below shows our 5th wave Target being hit within one week on this swing trade on a 60 minute time frame. This really highlights how accurate our 5th Wave Target Zones can be. Remember, the original signals video can be viewed >>>HERE<<< . (Click on the image to enlarge in another window)
