Elliott Wave Theory is often seen as a tool to determine long term cycles in the markets. However, the fractal nature of Elliott Wave makes it just as useful for short-term and intraday trading. In this session, Steven will explain why Elliott Wave is an excellent tool for daytrading. He will discuss how you can make money even when you have the wrong wave count and the wrong assumptions; how Elliott Wave is forward looking and a great money management tool. He will also focus on the weaknesses of wave-based trading and how to overcome them. Finally, he will describe how intermarket analysis, when used together with Elliott wave, can add confidence to your trading analysis and final actions.
