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.

NASDAQ's 15% Drop in 2000: a Snapshot of Market History or a Picture of its Future?
Is increased stock market volatility just ahead?

By Bob Stokes
3/27/2013 5:15:00 PM

From March to April 2000, the NASDAQ declined 15%. Many investors bought the dip in the months after the peak, but it was only the beginning of a larger decline. In the 2000-2002 price plunge, the technology-heavy index lost a whopping 78%. Do investors today have a similar mindset to the prevailing market psychology of 2000? Recent sentiment measures say "Yes."

Formidable Resistance Remains for the NASDAQ
Why a NASDAQ price barrier may not be broken

By Bob Stokes
2/8/2013 5:15:00 PM

The NASDAQ Composite has barely advanced in the past 10 months, despite an extremely bullish sentiment. The Elliott Wave Financial Forecast called attention to the upper trendline of a parallel price channel in April 2012, and that upper trendline has remained a barrier to a NASDAQ Composite advance. The just-published February Financial Forecast provides insights into why the market now faces a historic juncture.

S&P 500: January to Remember, But What's Next?
Rather than waiting for Friday's U.S. unemployment report, you can get a hint at the market's future action right now.

By Vadim Pokhlebkin
1/31/2013 6:15:00 PM

On a percentage basis the DJIA has had its best January since 1989, the S&P since 1997. Yet mainstream analysts seem to think that fears about Friday's (February 1) jobs report made the markets very nervous on the last trading day of January. But rather than waiting until 8:30 a.m. on Friday, you can get a hint at the market's future action from Elliott wave patterns in the charts of the Dow and S&P 500 right now.

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.
