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 support in the Green Pullback zone, which indicates 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 with a Long entry price of $7.02 with Stop below the Wave 4 low at $6.71. Our automated 5th Wave Target zone in Blue was around the $7.40 price for this potential Long Swing trade, giving a Risk to Reward, over 1:1.6

NE Stocks Swing Trading Journal – What Happened Next
As with most stocks at this low price, the open was pretty sedate, but in the second hour we did get a strong Bullish move to take us into the trade. The price action for the remainder of the session was flat forming a Bullish pennant. We had false breakout dots form in the overbought zone on the 28th September, indicating a strong Bullish move. (False breakout Stochastic is part of our Elliott Wave Indicator Suite).
Managing the trade wasn’t easy as this was a cheap stock, correlated loosely with Oil. With this type of trade, patience is key and your looking for higher support levels on small pull backs, as can be seen on the chart below with Cyan dots. As you can see the bias was bullish with higher support levels, but the price was struggling to break to the upside, out of the range that was forming. On 9th October the price broke out the range and hit the target zone, so we closed the trade with a Profit of 1.5% 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 in 8 trading days, on this swing trade on a 60 minute time frame. This really highlights how accurate our 5th Wave Target Zones can be.
