Trade Management is Key

While the Wave Principle is not in and of itself a trading method, you can use the three rules for impulse waves to determine where to place your protective stop. In the first lesson of this free resource, Jeffrey Kennedy reviews these three rules and then shows you where you should place your initial stop.

Next up is a video, How to Find and Capitalize on Elliott Wave Opportunities, from Jim Martens where he shows you what he looks for on a chart to find an opportunity. You'll see where he likes to place his initial stop, when he moves his stop to manage risk and protect gains, and at what point he exits the position.
