Attached is a 3min chart of the NIFTY Sept. futures. The move started yesterday from DP support on the 15min and 60min charts - as you teach, today I took the TS2 buy on the 3min chart which resulted in 4.6R. With apparent resistance (covergence of multiple MA's) on the 60min charts, divergence of the STF on the 3 min chart took the DP trade on the 3 min chart - STF was strong at the first target, ran with the ATR stop and finally exited near the days low at the DP from the previous major swing low for +16R Profit. An amazing day overall of +20.6R Profit.

At first sight, the Elliott wave theory appears to be perfect – all you have to do is place the appropriate wave count on the chart, by obeying a few simple rules and guidelines, and then you should be able to forecast where the market will go next. However, these are carefully chosen examples, and this is where the problem normally occurs, in that most textbooks and Elliott wave courses use specially selected examples that are tailored to demonstrate the technique.
However, as we will see in the first section below, things are very different once you enter the real world………….
