Are You Naked and Afraid in the Stock Market?
An inside look at the March 2014 Elliott Wave Financial Forecast: What pop culture TV trends say about the stock market

By Peter Kendall
3/14/2014 5:30:00 AM

There are times when applying theoretical premises to real world activity can be highly useful. In August 2000, for instance, when the Grand Supercycle degree bear market was just beginning, The Elliott Wave Financial Forecast presented readers with the theory of social visioning, which holds that expressions of a major change into a bear market mood can be reflected “quite immediately” in articles and television shows.

By Susan C. Walker

Dr. Thomas Brudermann's 2010 book tackled the dynamics of crowd psychology that emerge in contexts where people are guided by the whims of the herd instead of facts. At the conference, he plans to discuss how we can bridge the micro-macro problem in social science by studying how the decisions and actions of individuals give rise to collective phenomena like financial manias, panics and social unrest.

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.
