Bob Prechter has won numerous awards for market timing, including the United States Trading Championship, and in 1989 was awarded the “Guru of the Decade” title by Financial News Network (now CNBC).
Bob Prechter has also been named “one of the premier timers in stock market history” by Timer Digest, “the champion market forecaster” by Fortune magazine, “the world leader in Elliott Wave interpretation” by The Securities Institute, and “the nation’s foremost proponent of the Elliott Wave method of forecasting” by The New York Times.
Often called “Bob” by his colleagues, Bob Prechter has authored, co-authored and/or edited 13 books, including Elliott Wave Principle – Key to Market Behavior (1978), R.N.

Since 1979, when he first addressed the subject, Bob Prechter has been exploring socionomics, the study and prediction of social trends in light of the Wave Principle and its implications for the social sciences. In 1999, he created the Socionomics Institute, of which he is executive director. The institute is an independent think-tank whose mission is to develop socionomics as an academic discipline and to promote its commercial application. Recently, Bob Prechter has made presentations on his socionomic theory to MIT, the London School of Economics and academic conferences.
In 2004, the Socionomics Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, was created to provide education and fund scholarly investigation into socionomic theory.
