So you've thought hard, developed a trading plan, entered a trade -- and the results are falling in line with your analysis. Before you pat yourself on the back for a job well done, though, you need to make sure you execute your planned exit strategy.
Exiting the position too early means you leave money on the table, and holding on too long sees your hard-fought gains vanish tick by tick (or pip by pip, for forex traders).
You have stops in place to protect you if the market turns against you. But how do you know the right time to exit when price action goes your way?
While no forecasting method guarantees that you buy at the absolute low and sell at the absolute high, Elliott wave analysis -- and, specifically, Fibonacci relationships between waves -- can help you identify high-probability price targets.
Watch Jim Martens, editor of Elliott Wave International's Currency Specialty Service, show you how in this 3-minute video clip. (Taken from Jim's live online trading course for forex traders.)

The Elliott Wave Principle is a detailed description of how financial markets behave. The description reveals that mass psychology swings from pessimism to optimism and back in a natural sequence, creating specific Elliott wave patterns in price movements. Each pattern has implications regarding the position of the market within its overall progression, past, present and future. The purpose of Elliott Wave International’s market-oriented publications is to outline the progress of markets in terms of the Wave Principle and to educate interested parties in the successful application of the Wave Principle. While a course of conduct regarding investments can be formulated from such application of the Wave Principle, at no time will Elliott Wave International make specific recommendations for any specific person, and at no time may a reader, caller or viewer be justified in inferring that any such advice is intended. Investing carries risk of losses, and trading futures or options is especially risky because these instruments are highly leveraged, and traders can lose more than their initial margin funds. Information provided by Elliott Wave International is expressed in good faith, but it is not guaranteed. The market service that never makes mistakes does not exist. Long-term success trading or investing in the markets demands recognition of the fact that error and uncertainty are part of any effort to assess future probabilities. Please ask your broker or your advisor to explain all risks to you before making any trading and investing decisions.
