A Four-Chart Lesson in Spotting Trade Setups

By Elliott Wave International

You can find low-risk, high-probability trading opportunities by trading with the trend. The trick is to find the end of market corrections, so you can position yourself for the next move in the direction of the trend.

This excerpt from Jeffrey Kennedy’s free 47-page eBook How to Spot Trading Opportunities explains where to find bullish and bearish trade setups in your charts and how to zero-in on these opportunities. If this lesson interests you, the full 47-page eBook is free through July 6.

On the left-hand side of the illustration below, there are two bullish trade setups. As traders, we want to wait for the wave (2) correction to be complete so we can catch the move up in wave (3) – this is the trade. What we are trying to do in this bullish trade setup is anticipate the potential for profits on the buy-side as prices move up in wave (3). Another bullish trade setup is at the end of wave (4).

As traders, we are looking to buy the pullback and position ourselves within the direction of the larger up-trend. Remember, three-wave moves are corrections, which means that they are countertrend structures. On the other hand, five-wave moves define the larger trend. As traders, we want to determine what the trend is and trade in the direction of the trend. Our buying opportunity to rejoin the trend is whenever the trend pauses and forms a correction.

Now, let’s look at the right-hand side of the illustration where we see two bearish setups. When a five-wave move is complete, it is retraced in three waves as a correction. The end of the five-wave move presents the first trading opportunity that we can take advantage of the short side (or the sell side) as the wave (A) down begins.

Notice the second bearish trade setup gives us another shorting opportunity as wave (B) tops.

So, within the classic wave pattern of five waves up and three waves down, we have four high-probability trading opportunities in which we are either positioning ourselves in the direction of the trend or identifying termination points of a trend. I want to share with you some tricks I have picked up over the years about how to analyze corrective waves and their termination points. The single most important thing I’ve learned from analyzing corrections is that corrective or countertrend price action is usually contained by parallel lines.

As shown above, draw the parallel lines by beginning at the origin of wave A and going to the extreme of wave B. You draw a parallel of that line off the extreme of wave A. So basically you have a small, slightly angled downward price channel. This will show you the containment region for wave C. It also shows you an area toward the bottom of the lower trend line where you can expect a reversal in price.

Here is another example. Again, you draw the parallel lines off the origin of wave A, the extreme of wave A and the extreme of wave B.

Toward the upper end of the upper trend line, you will usually see a reversal in price.

This example shows how countertrend price action is contained by parallel lines in the British pound, 60-minute, all sessions. Why is it important to know parallel lines contain the corrective or countertrend price action? Number one, it will increase your confidence that you are indeed labeling a countertrend move properly. Number two, it identifies areas where you will likely see prices reverse. For example, we see this reversal up near the top.

How a Simple Line Can Improve Your Trading Success

Elliott Wave International’s Jeffrey Kennedy explains many ways to use this basic tool

By Elliott Wave International

The following trading lesson has been adapted from Jeffrey Kennedy’s eBook, Trading the Line – 5 Ways You Can Use Trendlines to Improve Your Trading Decisions. Now through February 7, you can download the 14-page eBook free. Learn more here.

“How to draw a trendline” is one of the first things people learn when they study technical analysis. Typically, they quickly move on to more advanced topics and too often discard this simplest of all technical tools.

Yet you’d be amazed at the value a simple line can offer when you analyze a market. As Jeffrey Kennedy, Elliott Wave International’s Chief Commodity Analyst, puts it:

“A trendline represents the psychology of the market, specifically, the psychology between the bulls and the bears. If the trendline slopes upward, the bulls are in control. If the trendline slopes downward, the bears are in control. Moreover, the actual angle or slope of a trendline can determine whether or not the market is extremely optimistic or extremely pessimistic.”

In other words, a trendline can help you identify the market’s trend. Consider this example in the price chart of Google.

That one trendline — drawn between the lows in 2004 and the lows in 2005 — provided support for a number of retracements over the next two years.

That’s pretty basic. But there are many more ways to draw trendlines. When a market is in a correction, you can draw a trendline and then draw a parallel line: in turn, these two parallel lines can create a channel that often “contains” the corrective price action. When price breaks out of this channel, there’s a good chance the correction is over and the main trend has resumed. Here’s an example in a chart of Soybeans. Notice how the upper trendline provided support for the subsequent move.

Use the same trading principles that major banks and hedge fund managers use everyday to make millions

He made a BILLION DOLLARS trading in one year.

Hedge fund trader George Soros made $1 billion dollars in the British Pound shortly after my book on foreign exchange was published.

Coincidence? Maybe, but you decide.

Hello, my name is Adam Hewison and 20 years ago when my book “RIGHT ON THE MONEY: The definitive guide to forecasting foreign exchange rates,” was first published, it was a huge hit with bank and hedge fund traders.

One hedge fund trader by the name of George Soros, who may have read my book, made a cool billion dollars in profits in the British Pound in 1992.

This was not a one off event. Banks and hedge fund traders regularly make millions of dollars every year in forex trading.

IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT FOREX

The truth is, many of the same trading principles that major banks and hedge fund managers use everyday to make millions, you will learn about in the eBook version of “RIGHT ON THE MONEY.” These principals can be applied to any market.

You can’t buy “RIGHT ON THE MONEY,” but you can get it for FREE.

Before I explain how you can receive my eBook with my compliments. Let me share with you just part of what “Stocks and Commodities Magazine” had to say about “RIGHT ON THE MONEY” when they reviewed my book:

“a killer product”

Now 20 years later, you will learn how “a killer product’ with its many powerful trading techniques can help keep you on track with your money no matter what happens to the economy.

But there’s more.

Along with receiving “RIGHT ON THE MONEY” for free, I am also going to include two winning portfolio’s that share many of the same principals as “RIGHT ON THE MONEY.”

“RIGHT ON THE MONEY” PORTFOLIOS THAT PRODUCE EXCELLENT RESULTS

THE PERFECT PORTFOLIO

Our conservative “PERFECT PORTFOLIO” uses ETF’s in a way that may surprise you. This portfolio has produced annual returns of 29% for each of the past 5 years in some of the most volatile and turbulent markets in recent history. Here’s a little secret, THE PERFECT PORTFOLIO only tracks 4 ETFs. * We will share with you the exact trading strategy and formula for filtering trades that we use to achieve those outstanding results.

THE WORLD CUP PORTFOLIO

The leveraged WORLD CUP PORTFOLIO was created in 2007 and has produced annual returns in excess of 100% for each of the last three years. This portfolio tracks just 6 markets that we believe can all be game changers in the future. This portfolio has produced gains in 10 of the last 12 quarters and has never lost money in any 12 month period. In addition to the six markets, we will share with you the *exact trading strategy and formula for filtering trades that we use to achieve those outstanding results.

HOW THE PAST CAN HELP MAKE YOU A WINNER IN THE FUTURE

There is an old Hungarian proverb that I believe in, I used it in “RIGHT ON THE MONEY,” “The past is the teacher of the future.”

Only by learning how the markets have worked in the past can you possibly be successful in the future. Nothing really changes in the world, if it did we would all be living in utopia and unfortunately, that is not the case.

DON’T JUST TAKE MY WORD

Take it from Leo Melamed, Chairman Emeritus of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME), now the CME Group. Leo Melamed is credited with creating financial futures in the United States. Here is a portion of what Mr. Melamed wrote in the foreword to my book, “… excellent educational reference for every serious trader.”

Okay so how do you get you copy of “RIGHT ON THE MONEY”?

Here’s how to access your eBook version of “RIGHT ON THE MONEY” and the two winning portfolios that I described above.
