Commodities Paper over the Fed’s Taper Talk
Now, a new Monthly Futures Junctures presents the big, moving picture in commodities

By Nico Isaac

According to the mainstream experts, there is one factor that continues to stand in the way of a full-blown, commodities sector comeback; namely, a rumored end to the Fed's stimulus program. Our look back over the last two years exposes the flaw in such logic.

Everyone knows: If you want the best meal in a fancy restaurant, ask what the chef's favorite dish is. That's what you order.  Likewise, if you want to make the most of near-term Elliott wave patterns, just ask which of the 13 known patterns is EWI Senior Analyst Jeffrey Kennedy’s favorite wave formation is. Then you wait for it to appear on the “plate” of a market’s price chart.

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."

What do the mainstream commodity analysts have in common with the Mayan prophets? Well, as it turns out, they both had trouble visualizing the post-2012 world. With the New Year approaching, it's not what the usual market experts do see that's so compelling. It's what they don't see.

Crude Oil: Count to Three, Elliott Wave 3?
See real-world examples of why the Ralph Nelson Elliott described third waves as "wonders to behold." Could crude oil be next?

By Nico Isaac
11/1/2012 3:30:00 PM

The Elliott Wave Principle states that in all liquid financial markets, prices progress in 5 waves. My personal favorite -- along with most Elliotticians -- is the third wave. The reason being: Imagine a giant, 400-pound gorilla. Now, imagine King Kong. That is the 3rd wave in comparison to most other Elliott wave patterns.

Wheat Beat: Impending Breakdown?
EWI's Daily Futures Junctures warned of wheat's recent decline amidst the bullish chorus.

By Nico Isaac
3/21/2012 4:00:00 PM

If you had checked the mainstream financial "weather" report regarding the wheat market since March 16, the forecast would have shown a huge satellite image of an impending bullish storm. In the words of one March 16 Reuters: "The wheat market is bullish in general. With Chicago's performance, it's difficult for us to fall." Yet -- FALL is exactly what wheat prices did.

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. 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.
