Elliott wave analysis stands above all other methods of forecasting financial markets: First, it is objective. Second, it's one of the few truly dynamic forms of technical analysis.Now that we've told you how Elliott wave analysis works, allow us to show you. Today we're using a recent lesson from Daily Futures Junctures, where EWI's senior commodities analyst Jeffrey Kennedy has stayed one step ahead of soybeans.

Soybean Prices: Sticking Out Their Neck(line)
3 real-world examples of how the head-and-shoulders pattern anticipates dramatic price moves

By Nico Isaac

You've probably never heard the words "Mint Chocolate Chip" and "Head-and-Shoulders pattern" uttered in (nearly) the same breath. But for EWI's senior commodities analyst and Futures Junctures Service editor Jeffrey Kennedy, those apparently unrelated phrases do indeed have something in common -- namely, they are two of Jeffrey's favorite things in the whole wide world:

Commodities Overview: The Wheels of Change Are in Motion
New April 2013 Monthly Futures Junctures: The big picture commodities outlook for 2013 and 2014.

By Nico Isaac

In March 2013, a Geneva-based research study concluded that commodity markets are driven by "self-reinforcing mechanisms," and not "by external information." The Elliott Wave Principle identifies that "self-reinforcing mechanism" as investor psychology, which unfolds in clear and observable Elliott wave patterns on market price charts. When it comes to anticipating those patterns and forecasting the trend in key commodities, nobody is more qualified than EWI’s senior analyst and Futures Junctures Service editor, Jeffrey Kennedy.

Will the Long & Winding Commodities Road Lead Back to a Bull Market?
A brand-new, all digital Monthly Futures Junctures presents video analysis of the next big moves in 10 key futures markets -- plus two ETF's and the S&P 500.

By Nico Isaac

If the year 2012 had a theme song for key commodity markets, it could be the Beatles' "Long and Winding Road" -- emphasis on the word "winding." And, according to a recent Bloomberg News article, the disjointed efforts among futures put a major crimp in the idea that the trend is your friend. But for EWI's chief commodity analyst and Futures Junctures Service editor Jeffrey Kennedy, there is no such thing as a "lack of a trend."

Soybeans Futures: Never Ask a Bald Man for Hair Styling Advice
Another fresh example of how Elliott wave analysis keeps you one step ahead -- in soybeans, this time around.

By Nico Isaac
12/11/2012 5:15:00 PM

The way I see it, using "fundamental" analysis for guidance into the trend changes in the financial markets is like asking a bald man for hair styling advice. Their perspective on the matter is very... how shall I say, limited. Take, for example, the situation in soybeans futures back in early September 2012. At the time, the mainstream experts saw a "perfect bullish storm" building in soybeans backdrop via these three "highly accommodative" events...

Soybean Futures Sell-off: "Supply Shock" -- or Elliott Wave Script?
A real-life example of how the October 2012 Monthly Futures Junctures used Elliott wave analysis to stay one step ahead of the recent selloff in soybean prices

By Nico Isaac
11/13/2012 2:00:00 PM

On Nov. 12, soybean futures plummeted 3% to land at their lowest level in 5 months. AND, right on cue, the mainstream experts played the fundamental "black box" to determine what main factor caused the grain's nosedive. And, after listening to the entire tape forwards and backwards, ONE event was fingered as the ultimate source of sell off in beans: A "larger-than-expected" Nov. 9 US Department of Agriculture production and stockpile report.

Soybeans Plunge Sharply Lower
EWI's commodity-focused Futures Junctures Service analyzes Elliott wave chart patterns to forecast key grains, ags and meats markets

"U.S. soybean futures fell Monday, pressured by favorable weather for South American soy crops. ...soybeans settled down $15.27 1/4 a bushel, a more than one-week closing low." -- (The Wall Street Journal, Oct. 29.) As it's often the case, Elliott wave patterns called for a weakness in soybeans long before the news about Brazil's crop.

For Elliott wave analysts, 5 is the magic number. The 5-wave structure is one of the bedrocks of this market-forecasting method. Its rules and guidelines help you determine the depth and duration of developing waves.

Why You Can "Count" On A Fresh Opportunity In Soybeans
EWI's Daily Futures Junctures maps out the grain's next ideal scenario using objective Elliott wave analysis

By Nico Isaac
4/12/2012 4:45:00 PM

According to mainstream analysis of financial markets, root causes called "fundamentals" give rise (or fall) to turns in the market's price trend. But in reality, all too often changes in price happen first. Then, the mainstream experts swoop in and try to quickly adjust "fundamentals" to fit price action -- after the fact. This often creates a flurry of mixed information where the theme of one news story is quickly contradicted by the next. Enter: Soybeans!

Grains: Has the Trend Changed?
EWI's Daily Futures Junctures reveals whether the moves up in soybeans, wheat, and corn will last

By Nico Isaac
12/1/2011 5:15:00 PM

The commodity grain complex has endured more recent setbacks than the Herman Cain campaign. In September alone, Soybean prices plunged 20% in the biggest rout in three years, while the 23% fall in corn prices was the steepest since at least 1959. But on November 21, the grain pain turned to gains when soybeans, corn, and wheat enjoyed a synchronized surge to one-week highs. So the million dollar question is: Will the northward trend continue?

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.
