Our TradeTheFifth 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 Green Pullback zone, which indicates an 85% 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 $33.95 with Stop above the Wave 4 low at $36.22. Our automated 5th Wave Target zone in Blue was around the $29.50 price for this Short trade, giving a 1:2 Risk to Reward.
Below this chart is commentary on how the trade went and chart showing exit when price went through our automated target zone and was was re-printed a wave 3. (Click on the image to enlarge in another window)
TWTR Stocks Trading Journal – What Happened Next
After the initial entry on Wednesday the 5th September, the price closed near the low of the day with large volume. This indicated momentum building quickly in our Short trade on $TWTR. Thursday’s price action was very similar in volume and range, also closing near the low of the day. When we get these quick 5th wave moves we must be ready to take profit at target zones quickly as the price tends to bounce of these levels. So on Friday 7th September, the price did go into the target zone with less volume and 1.6% profit was taken on the account balance when the trade was closed. This quick exit made sense due uncertainty in the markets over the weekend and the lower volume as we attempted to push through our 5th wave target zone.
