Advanced trading with Elliott waves

Welcome to my second video tutorial on how to use Elliott wave theory in your trading.

In this video, I aim to show how Elliott wave theory can work across many timeframes.

I look at a textbook example of how to use the theory from the gold market. Note that my example is from August, so the market has moved on from then, but the main principles still apply.

In this video, I expand on the two main principles of Elliott wave theory:

• In any bull or bear market, the market travels in five main waves.

• The fifth wave is followed by an ABC correction.

After the correction, we get a resumption of the main trend.

And if you’re a new reader, or need a reminder about some of the methods I refer to in my trades, then do have a look at my other introductory videos:
