In this article, we provide some guide to improve trading performance with Elliott Wave Analysis and Elliott Wave Counting. Elliott Wave is sophisticated. This sophistication makes it difficult to judge the trading performance of Elliott Wave in practice. Purely looking at the trading performance, Elliott Wave can introduce some subjectivity. It is true. However, many trader might agree that Elliott Wave can become a powerful tool when we can reduce or get rid of the subjectivity. The fact is that there are many seasoned traders using Elliott Wave successfully in practice. Some of them are high profile traders at the fund management level.

We have already suggested the way to reduce the subjectivity with Elliott Wave counting through the book and some other articles using the “template and pattern approach”.

Introduction on the Elliott Wave Trend with Wave Structural Score

The essence in the “Template and Pattern Approach” to count Elliott Wave is:

Building up wave counting using template (or patterns) first

Use the Wave score to get the scientific justification or when the wave score is not available, then you can check the correct location of each wave point to judge the valid trading point

These are the two main things about the “Template and Pattern Approach”. This is the only way to deal with the complex nature of Elliott Wave Trading. Now, in our Elliott Wave Trend, it shows all the available template (or pattern) to trader. This is good thing because you will not miss out any single possibility for your wave counting. At the same time, Elliott Wave Trend shows you both impulse wave structural score and corrective wave structural score.

Now here is important information for your trading. Elliott Wave can provide you trading entry at several different locations. These are not limited list but you can consider it at least. Some trader might prefer one entry over the other. You might create your own entry outside this list.

Entry Option 1) Impulse Wave .123 (= two triangles)

Entry Option 2) Impulse Wave .1234 (= three triangles)

Entry Option 3) Impulse Wave .12345 (= four triangles)

Entry Option 4) Corrective Wave .ABC (= two triangles)

Entry Option 5) Elliott Wave version of Triangle for breakout

You need to set the right template in the Elliott Wave Trend. Note that 1 Equilibrium Fractal Wave = 1 triangle. So if you wish to play with entry option 2, impulse wave .1234, then you will need to set for EFW number = 3. Then Elliott Wave Trend will bring the right template for impulse Wave .1234 (= three triangles).
