When a bull market ends, the "faces" of the uptrend face harsh scrutiny. The Great Depression led to the Glass-Steagall Banking Act of 1933. "This is a bigger peak, so the politicians will extract more than just their average pound of flesh..."

By Bob Stokes

Low inflation and a better jobs report have some observers bringing back the late 1990s phrase, "Goldilocks Economy." This "just right" analysis is supposed to be ideal for stocks. Indeed, the majority of financial professionals see 2014 ending in the black for the S&P 500.

Most investors read news looking for a rational REASON why the markets do what they do. But almost no one talks about the one IRRATIONAL factor that does more to drive the trend than all “fundamentals” combined: fear.

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.
