Elliott Wave Forecast is a technique to forecast the market based on Elliott Wave Principle which was develop around 1930’s and since then many traders have been following the theory and applying it in their everyday trading. We all know life is not perfect and nothing is 100% accurate, same applies to the Elliott wave Theory. We have been trying over the last 11 years to take away the subjective nature of the Theory.
The Main thing is that the Theory fails in many aspects and we need to keep in mind that it was developed based on Indexes which don’t trade the same way as some of the other markets for example Commodities or Forex. The big difference is the Trend, every Professional trader knows that Indexes trend while on the other hand the Commodities and Forex market tend to range more. This presents huge differences when it comes to applying the Elliott Wave Theory and executing trades based on the theory in these markets. There are a number of reasons why 95% of traders fail to become successful and give up trading and pick some other profession. Some of the major reasons are 1) Trading without a Plan 2) Poor Money Management and 3) Trading with a Poor Risk / Reward ratio. Also, new traders hear every one say Trend is your friend and trading in direction of the trend is the way to become a successful trader. However, many traders in general and new traders in particular don’t even know how to define a trend. This is where we believe a forecasting service has to play it’s part and make it absolutely clear to the traders what the trend is for each instrument in each time frame so they can filter out non-trending instruments when looking for an instrument to trade.
We at Elliott Wave Forecast take the stress away from traders and combine the concept of Trend with swings sequences and extreme areas to come up with high probability trade setups. We use Green (Up), Red (Down) and Turning (Black) arrows to indicate the Trend with a clear invalidation level in each time frame. Then, we use Green Bullish Sequence and Red Bearish sequence stamps where we see an incomplete Bullish or Bearish sequence in any time frame and then highlight extreme areas to buy or sell with a blue shaded box. In addition, we use solid lines to show a move in direction of the trend and a dotted line to represent a correction against the trend. We also put a lot of focus on Money / Risk Management and don’t advise our clients to Risk more than 1-2% of their equity on any trade and only pick trades with a Risk / Reward ratio of 2:1. We have made available this Position Size Calculator as well to help clients to determine the position size they should pick for their trades based on their equity and stop loss required for a particular trade.
