you don't have to split up the trade if you do not want trading elliott wave, its not as important. when you trade harmonic patterns you should always split it up into two parts, close half the trade if it hits the 0.382 and then move the other half to break even.......
From your experience of trading with elliott wave strategy, do most of the single trades hit their target? The reason I asking this is because I see the target for this trade is like 200 pips away and most of the time I saw the market turn around the other way before hitting the target.
normally i would wait and trade the 3rd wave. however, the bearish oil market is crushing the Canadian dollar and other major oil exporters, that's why i set the tp so high, and jumped into the trade earlier than normal.
look at all the harmonic patterns i listed as trade idea that failed. i then took some time off and reevaluated my situation. elliott wave takes some time to learn, but make no mistake about it, it is the holy grail.
im still learning myself. one thing i have learned is that harmonic patterns are a hyped up pile of , meat grinder trading for peanuts, huge drawdown. look at all the harmonic patterns that got stomped out on my ideas. i have since found the holy grail, and it is elliot wave.
