Special report excerpted from two issues of Robert Prechter's Elliott Wave Theorist. Through real-world examples, learn what really moves the oil market so you won't be fooled by the next change in trend.
Remember "Peak Oil"? About ten years ago, it was a hugely popular theory "explaining" why oil prices would only go higher. They didn't. These excerpts from Robert Prechter's Elliott Wave Theorist highlight the flaws in the conventional approach to forecasting oil prices -- and show you why oil fooled almost everyone.
You'll see examples of how mainstream economic forecasters extrapolate current conditions into the future. Compare that to Bob's method that uses Elliott wave analysis combined with sentiment measures to identify tradable extremes in the market.
