Elliott Wave – Holy Grail trade setup

Thanks Steve. Thank you for this massive + 29R today on $/Yen on 3 min chart. This was possible with the market analyzer of Ninja Trader which allows me to follow several currencies at the same time. The set up was a standard TS3... But I chose not to close the trade on first target as the DP support on 15 min chart was not yet touched. When this DP on 15 min chart was reached, we were already on strong STF in 3 min.... So I let the trade follow its way until I was stopped with a 29R profit!!!!!!


Elliott Wave – Holy Grail trade setup

The Holy Grail trade setup is a name I have given to what I believe is the best Elliott Wave setup there is. From reading the Elliott Wave Rules and Guidelines, you will have already seen that the strongest Elliott Wave is Wave (3), this is Guideline No: 1 so that is the best wave to trade. To enter at the start of the Wave  (3) we need a method to enter at the end of the Wave (2). From Guideline No: 4 we have seen that Wave (2) usually unfolds as a simple ABC. So based on this, if we look to enter a new trade on the end of a Wave (2) that has just unfolded as a simple abc correction, then we are in the best place to then trade the strong Wave (3) swing.


So what points do we need to look for ?

First we need to identify an important high or low, this is the starting point. Then we need to identify the initial swing off this important high or low, this is the Wave (1). Then we look for the first correction following the initial swing after an important high or low, This is the Wave (2). Then this initial correction should unfold as a simple abc pattern.


Let’s see what this looks like:

For a more detailed look on a real-world example here is a short (9 min) video showing this unfolding on a:

3 min chart of the Mini Dow (YM)

As you can see, getting in at the start of the Wave (3) allows you to keep your initial risk small, to then take full advantage of the Strong Wave (3) swing.  Now you can see why I call this my “Holy Grail” setup, not because it has a high % of winners, but because it has the potential for Profits that are much larger than the initial risk.
