At EWI's Message Board, we get great questions from readers every day. Here's one: 

Emerging markets are being touted as the next wave of opportunity. An Oct. 21 Wall Street Journal article, for example, has reported that Northern Trust Corp., which has $749b under management, says it's time to "lighten up on the U.S. and put more money into emerging-market stocks." The risks are higher, but so are the returns, goes the thinking.
What do you make of this new trend?
For the latest analysis of the emerging markets, let's turn to Bob Prechter's new, October Special Video Elliott Wave Theorist (online now). On page 4 of the print version, in the section "Momentum Analysis," Bob shows you this chart s and writes (abbreviated chart; excerpt): 
"Let’s take a look and see what we have today.
"The top graph is the S&P 500, the one that everybody is following and projecting higher.
"The charts below show you what’s going on in the rest of the world.
"The Chinese stock market peaked out in August 2009; it’s been in a bear market ever since and is down substantially.
"The Japanese Nikkei index has been down ever since early 2010.
"The EuroStoxx index has been down since early 2011, and so have the famous BRICs that everyone wanted to own back in 2010-2011.
"And the emerging markets…are also down."
Bob Prechter then proceeds to show you what these "massive global non-confirmations of the new highs in the S&P" imply for the stocks -- including the emerging market stocks.
You will also find answers to other important questions in the October video Elliott Wave Theorist (online now). In this almost 40-minute presentation, Prechter shows you 40 charts and answers questions like: 
  1. What does the recent double bottom in the Volatility Index, VIX, tell us about the trend in stocks? (Page 6 of the print version.)

  2. The big-money people, known as Large Speculators, are very bullish. Is now the right time to buy stocks? (Page 6 of the print version.)

  3. What does Goldman Sachs' recent call for the S&P to hit 1575 mean for stocks? (Page 7 of the print version.)
  4. Commodities: Many people are saying it's time to buy. Is it? (Pp. 7-8 of the print version.)
  5. Will the Fed's zero-interest rate policy keep markets up?(Pp. 8-9 of the print version.)
  6. Is the U.S. dollar doomed? (Page 10 of the print version.)

The Elliott Wave Principle is a detailed description of how financial markets behave. The description reveals that mass psychology swings from pessimism to optimism and back in a natural sequence, creating specific Elliott wave patterns in price movements. Each pattern has implications regarding the position of the market within its overall progression, past, present and future. The purpose of Elliott Wave International’s market-oriented publications is to outline the progress of markets in terms of the Wave Principle and to educate interested parties in the successful application of the Wave Principle. While a course of conduct regarding investments can be formulated from such application of the Wave Principle, at no time will Elliott Wave International make specific recommendations for any specific person, and at no time may a reader, caller or viewer be justified in inferring that any such advice is intended. Investing carries risk of losses, and trading futures or options is especially risky because these instruments are highly leveraged, and traders can lose more than their initial margin funds. Information provided by Elliott Wave International is expressed in good faith, but it is not guaranteed. The market service that never makes mistakes does not exist. Long-term success trading or investing in the markets demands recognition of the fact that error and uncertainty are part of any effort to assess future probabilities. Please ask your broker or your advisor to explain all risks to you before making any trading and investing decisions.
