A Wall-to-Wall Selloff in European Bourses
European Short Term Update used Elliott wave analysis to anticipate the reversal

By Nico Isaac

On Thursday, May 23, the ticker tape of European stock markets resembled the jumbotron scale on the weight-loss reality TV show The Biggest Loser -- one triple-digit number after another. Unlike the TV show, however, the sharp stock market declines were not a sign of improving health. According to one news report, brokers across the pond went on a 24-hour damage control assuring their "investors to keep calm, carry on, and don't panic."

A Fundamental Lesson from Italy's Recent Political Deadlock
European Financial Forecast uses Elliott wave analysis -- not election results -- to identify the near-term stock index trends on the Continent.

By Nico Isaac
2/27/2013 5:30:00 PM

On Feb. 26, Italy's much-anticipated Parliamentary Election ended in an impasse, when dark horse candidate/comedian Beppe Grillo earned enough votes to prevent the two leading parties from gaining a majority. In the immediate aftermath of the election, European stock markets took a synchronized leap south in single-day declines from 1.5% to 5%. On that day, the mainstream experts were unanimous: Italy's election outcome flat out bearish...

European Markets Crumble: Were You Surprised or Prepared?
Conventional financial analysts were caught off guard by the volatility. European Short Term Update subscribers anticipated it.

By Nathaniel Williams
2/8/2013 3:30:00 PM

It's easy to extrapolate present trends into the future. But it's not helpful, mainly because trends change. It's much harder -- and yet more helpful -- to peek around the corner to see what's next. Elliott wave analysis equips you to do that, which can sometimes yield fruit in abundance. Check out this video about European stock markets.

European Stocks: EuroStoxx 50 Shows a Topping Picture
The recent weakness in European stocks was expected

By Vadim Pokhlebkin
1/30/2013 5:15:00 PM

The news reports from Europe on January 30 said that European stocks took a hit after the release of weaker-than-expected U.S. GDP number for the 4th quarter of 2012. Yet Elliott wave patterns in the EuroStoxx 50, pan-European index of the continent's 50 largest stocks, are showing that the recent rally has been on its last leg for a while.

By Nathaniel Williams

By all accounts, the economic and financial realities in Europe seem dire. Yet if you look at the behavior of some credit traders in Europe, you'd never know it. Is their new-found optimism toward risky debt a sign of hope -- or a dangerous omen?

Do Bans on Short Selling Work? See for Yourself
One look at a chart -- and the answer is clear

By Vadim Pokhlebkin
8/9/2012 7:30:00 PM

When panic and fear grip the market, the authorities try their best to stop the bleeding. Their go-to move is to ban short selling of stocks -- a popular speculation method practiced by traders who believe stocks should fall further. To help stop the current wave of the crisis, the eurozone financial authorities have banned short selling, too. Writes our August Global Market Perspective...

With so much focus on the hopes of further economic stimuli by central banks, it's important to consider what difference (if any) the already HUGE amount of economic stimulus has made. Let's look at Europe.

The European Economy: Game Over -- OR -- Play Till It Wins?
Inside our new, August 2012 European Financial Forecast

By Nico Isaac
7/27/2012 4:15:00 PM

Europe's 2-year long economic Whac-A-Mole game continues. Central banks across the Continent use their giant "mallets" of bond buybacks, rate cuts, and bailouts to hit ONE crisis over the head -- only to have another one savagely pop up in the opposite corner. So, will Europe's monetary authorities be able to "whack" all the reoccurring "moles" before their time runs out?

The raging inferno of soaring bond yields and plunging stock markets has been spreading across Europe, jumping from Greece to Portugal to Spain to Italy. But according to the mainstream experts, there is one way to snuff out the flames: fly rescue planes over the blaze and dump emergency lending, low interest rates, and monetary policy from the skies above. And from the ashes, new growth will emerge. So, are they right?

To continue the "global investments" theme started by the recent interview with EWI's Asian-Pacific analyst about the markets in India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Indonesia, I also sat down with our own Brian Whitmer, EWI's European stock market analyst. -- Brian, these days it's easier than ever to get exposure to global markets, especially given the explosion in ETFs. But there are too many markets to focus on, and too many opinions about them. You chose Elliott wave analysis as your market-forecasting method. Why Elliott?

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.
