(Video) Why the Idea That Strong Economy Is Bullish for Stocks Is False

Economists argue that improving U.S. economy is bullish or stocks. On the surface, it’s a perfectly logical argument – and it just feels right. The problem is that the reality does not support this claim.

EUR/CAD Falls to a 4-Month Low: What Happened?
And how Sylvester Stallone exposes the main flaw of fundamental financial analysis... sort of!

By Nico Isaac
5/12/2014 5:15:00 PM

Today we discuss the recent "shock" in the euro/Canadian dollar cross rate (EUR/CAD). On April 27, bullish economic data came out showing Canada's GDP expanded by .2% in February, the second consecutive month of positive growth. Sounds bullish, yet the "loonie" turned down. What would Sylvester Stallone say about that!

EURUSD: Hangin' Tough. Next Stop, 1.40?
The euro is now face-to-face with a big "round number"

After going sideways for most of April, EURUSD, the euro-dollar exchange rate, finally broke free on May 6, rising as high as 1.3951 intraday. That puts it within spitting distance from 1.40 -- a nice, juicy, big “round number.” Mmm.

By Nico Isaac

In early-morning trading on April 28, oil prices took a strong step higher. The mainstream “fundamentals” experts were unanimous in their explanation as to what caused the bounce, and in their expectation for the rise to continue. Yet, by mid-afternoon, the supported uptrend ended. What gives?

On April 30, the Fed said they would further trim bond purchases and keep interest rates at zero. Also, on the same day a new GDP number showed that the U.S. economy basically stalled in Q1. All that sounds negative for stocks -- yet you'd be surprised to know that...

Why This Future Trend for Natural Gas Is "Easy to Envision"
Energy Pro Service uses objective Elliott wave analysis to outline the near-term trend in natgas

By Nico Isaac
4/28/2014 5:15:00 PM

Aside from a strong rally in late January to late February, natural gas prices since December 2013 have remained essentially unchanged, staying below the $5 level. Then in March, we saw a 25% sell-off in the first week alone -- the largest weekly drop since 1996. If “bad fundamentals” were behind the sharp sell-off, it would follow that news related to natural gas during this time was bearish. N-O on all accounts!

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.
