For Elliotticians, analyzing a market is a two-step process: First, determine the most likely direction of the dominant trend. Second, calculate key support and resistance levels that act as visual tripwires on a price chart. If prices trigger these levels, you know it's time to hit the exit. Let me show you an example.

In 1968, Dick Diamond made $900,000 -- as a day-trader. I don't even want to calculate how much that is in today’s money. But the following year the bull market ended – and Dick lost 70% of his capital. That’s when he realized that for a real trader...

Seeing Natural Gas's Spike from an Elliott Wave Perspective
Look beyond supply data to find the impetus for the market's surge this week

By Editorial Staff
4/11/2014 9:45:00 AM

On Thursday, April 10, energy watchers got an eyeful when natural gas futures rallied 4% (at one point) to end the day near a one-month high. According to mainstream experts, the impetus for the surge was a bullish U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) weekly storage report. There’s just one problem: The new data didn’t spark a rally. A rather mature Elliott wave pattern did.

S&P 500: One More New High? Last Week, That Seemed VERY Likely – Here’s Why

By Vadim Pokhlebkin
4/8/2014 4:00:00 PM

Last Thursday (April 3), the S&P hit a new all-time high – one of several. The index was already soaring somewhere between where the eagles fly and the stratosphere, so the idea that the April 3 high would be the high wasn’t that far-fetched. However, from an Elliott wave perspective, the ascent was probably NOT over. Why?

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.
