An inside look at the January 2014 Elliott Wave Theorist

By Robert Prechter, CMT
3/12/2014 6:15:00 AM

Accuracy in specific forecasts is an elusive goal. In 1982, we were super-bullish, but at that time who would have predicted the iPhone? No one has a crystal ball. I nevertheless venture into the unknown. If a third of these potential events occurs – probably by 2017 but let’s say no later than 2023 – we will judge the exercise as having been worthwhile.

Public figureheads tend to represent eras, including chairs of the Federal Reserve. Robert Prechter previously noted that the “chairmanships of 1967 to the present are remarkably like those of 1913 to 1930." This observation may provide insight into what to expect during the Janet Yellen era.

By Bob Stokes

Politicians have kicked the debt ceiling dilemma down the road, and with it, the prospect of a default on the national debt. However, actual defaults have recently occurred, and the trickle will eventually turn into a torrent. Many governments in the U.S. are crippled by public pension liabilities.

Now is Not the Time to be Complacent about the Markets

By Bob Stokes
9/13/2013 5:15:00 PM

Much of what Robert Prechter’s business best-seller Conquer the Crash warned about came to pass during the 2007-2009 financial crisis. It has been five years since the collapse of Lehman Brothers, and, now, the prevailing attitude is that of complacency. The just-published Elliott Wave Theorist explains why that's the most dangerous attitude that one can have toward the markets and the economy at this historic juncture.

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.
