Before it dropped 7.3% on May 22, 2013 -- “one of its worst single-day declines in decades (WSJ) -- the Nikkei 225 was up 50.3% on the year, and up 12.7% in May alone. By the time the carnage was over, the Nikkei had fallen from near 16,000 to near 12,500 -- all in a matter of about three weeks. Yet, as dire as it looked at the time, here is why it became clear to us that the crash was only part of a correction.

Australia's tale of two depositions is fascinating. But it is important less for its political intrigue -- and more for what it says about Australia's stock market.

The Nikkei's (Not So Cute and Cuddly) Bear Market
Is the end of the market's downtrend finally here?

By Nico Isaac
7/2/2013 6:00:00 PM

Since soaring to a near 13-year high in late May, Japan's Nikkei 225 bellwether index plunged 20%-plus to enter official grizzly territory. This move down went entirely against its fundamental script, which anticipated the stay of Abenomics to keep the NIkkei's upside well supported.

By Nico Isaac

On the evening of June 23, stargazers across the globe beheld the aptly named Supermoon. The largest (i.e., closest to the earth) full moon of the year emitted a bright, pinkish glow to also earn the nickname Strawberry moon. The next morning on June 24, stock gazers took in a similar spectacle: a Superswoon in Asian stock markets that emitted a similarly bright, reddish glow across the board

The Nikkei's Massive Plunge: Get a More Satisfying Explanation
The Nikkei's price charts have been telling the whole story all along – if you could see it

By Nathaniel Williams

Here's what we said in early May: "The [Nikkei] has continued advancing on lower momentum and volume than seen earlier in the rally. In addition, sentiment as measured by the Nikkei 225 Daily Sentiment Index, remains near elevated levels that have coincided with significant tops in the past. Thus, our main indicators are signaling that the rally since late 2012 is near its end." So, what happened? On May 23, the Nikkei dropped more than 7%.

Spotting Trend Reversals in Real Time: Here’s an Example of How We Do It
See how the Asian-Pacific Financial Forecast anticipated a market top in Bangladesh

By Nathaniel Williams
5/22/2013 5:00:00 PM

EWI's Asian-Pacific analyst saw that, in 2010, the Dhaka General Index had completed a five-wave impulse, a typical Elliott wave pattern that precedes a correction. Moreover, the index had also risen five waves from its 1999 high -- meaning that it had topped at two degrees of trend. The implications were clear: The Dhaka General was in for a sharp correction. What happened next?

Think back to 2007 and early 2008, before the worst of the financial crisis. Perhaps you recall this major investment belief: Even if the West took a dive, emerging markets would save the day. But when the crisis hit, emerging markets crashed right along with the developed ones. Still, there were a few important nuances. For example...

Australia's Banking Boom: Knock on Wood
How Elliott wave analysis -- not luck -- propelled the ASX 200's rally to five-year highs

By Nico Isaac
5/6/2013 6:00:00 PM

In April 2013, use of the 'b' word -- as in "bubble" showed up in a surprising region of the world: the Australian banking sector. Turns out that major Aussie lenders have enjoyed a powerful upswing since the start of the year. As a recent Wall Street Journal article wrote: "It's astonishing given the size of Australia, its population, economy and banking system, relative to other countries like the US, China, Japan and the UK."

Bears Continue to Take a Giant Bite Out of Apple
Our charts reveal why professional analysts never saw the 40% freefall in Apple shares coming.

By Nico Isaac
4/18/2013 5:30:00 PM

Last September, with Apple Inc. shares soaring into the outergalactic $700 region, the mainstream experts tightened their grip on the upside. But instead of going to the moon, AAPL crashed back to earth in a 40% selloff to the 16-month lows we see today. One question remains: How could the professional analysts have gotten it so wrong?

Abenomics in Japan: Have They Fueled the Nikkei's Astounding Surge?

Case in point: The Asian-Pacific Financial Forecast did not attribute the Nikkei's surge to Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's new economic policies -- because it had already anticipated the move a month before his election victory.

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.
