USDJPY: Climbing Elliott Wave “Stairs”
A great example of how important it is to listen to the market – instead of the news

By Vadim Pokhlebkin
7/29/2014 6:00:00 PM

We’ve long said you don’t need the news to know a market trend. The news sometimes "helps," but the trend itself is created by the collective psychology of traders and investors. Here's a fresh example.

"Concerns that a fresh round of sanctions against Russia would have a negative impact on euro area growth pressured the single currency lower." Those concerns aren't likely to lift any time soon, so the euro should keep weakening, right? Actually, no.

On Tuesday, the yen saw a sharp intraday drop. The market has recovered since then. Now, the thinking is that the next big move will largely depend on the events in Ukraine and Gaza.

By Vadim Pokhlebkin
7/18/2014 3:45:00 PM

Geopolitical tensions, the Fed's interest rate policy -- these and other reasons are said to be driving the euro lower. But will they KEEP doing that? That's where answers based on fundamental analysis get a little foggy.

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.
