When you read the title of this story, your first thought probably was: "What a preposterous idea." And yet, someone looking at the market's apparent reaction last week might have thought exactly that.

Why Greece's Stock Market Fell 13% in ONE Day... No, the REAL Reason!
The worst one-day collapse ever was not triggered by the snap election decision

By Nico Isaac
12/11/2014 5:00:00 PM

On December 9, Greece's stock market plunged 13% -- its "worst collapse ever." Knowing why the market crashed, however, is not the story being told by the mainstream media.

Why the biggest monetary stimulus effort in the world did NOT stop deflation in its tracks

By Nico Isaac

At its inception in 2013, EWI warned that Abenomics would fail to rescue Japan's economy from deflation. Now, a November 20 New York Times article confirms our forecast: "It's time to call Abenomics a failure."

At last count, EIGHT European nations are now in outright deflation. It's the "Titanic" shipwreck scenario "no one saw coming." Well, not exactly no one.

Don't Blame Sanctions For Russia's Bear Market
The RTS Index and the ruble started falling long before the blacklists began

By Nico Isaac

The mounting sanctions against Russia are not the cause of the reversal in Russian shares and ruble. Why? Because the reversal began 3 years BEFORE the blacklists began.

Start Making Sense of the Euro's Price Swings
See how at the euro's May 2014 high, an Elliott wave diagonal pattern warned of the coming collapse

By Nico Isaac
10/24/2014 8:30:00 AM

When the euro stood at a 2-and-1/2 year high against the U.S. dollar in May, the currency was said to have "priced in" an ECB interest rate cut into negative territory. But then, said cut came & the euro fell. Sound crazy?

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.
