Updated: October 30, 2017In late September, the USDA dropped a bearish bombshell on the lean hog market. So, why then did hog prices proceed to rally to a two-plus month high? Miracle -- or something else?
Updated: October 16, 2017In 2012, all fundamental signs in wheat's backdrop pointed UP. But instead, wheat prices entered a four-year long, 50%-plus deep bear market to a decade low before pausing. The grain went off its fundamental script. But it stayed true to its Elliott wave one.

Updated: September 8, 2017In early 2011, our senior commodities analyst Jeffrey Kennedy saw a very bearish picture on the long-term price chart of the bellwether Continuous Commodity Index -- that of a mature Elliott wave "impulse." We're now in year six of the bear market that followed.

Updated: August 25, 2017What do the 2017 bear market sell-off in sugar and the August rally in soybean oil have in common? They're both classic Elliott wave examples of what happens when a third wave develops on a market's price chart -- namely, huge moves!

Updated:In this week's episode, we talk to three analysts from Elliott Wave International about the respective markets they cover. We start off with Jeffrey Kennedy, the editor of our Commodity Junctures market-forecasting service, to learn about the one commodity Jeff is most excited about. Next up is an interview with Jim Martens, the editor of our Currency Pro Service. He has been using Elliott wave analysis since the mid-1980s -- on forex markets, for most of that time. Here, Jim tells you how Elliott waves help you "make sense" of the FX markets -- and why it's important to look at the larger trend. In today's last interview, Chris Carolan explains what a weaker dollar implies for Asian equities and gives an update on what he's looking at in China.
Updated:August was the worst month for the Dow in five years, yet many investors remain optimistic about stocks. If a bear market has started, history shows that many of these investors will hold all the way down. EWI correspondent Bob Stokes reports. Bob Stokes brings us our next report on the Fed. The only thing the Fed has to show for its purchase of $1.5 trillion worth of Treasuries (also known as QE) is a high-priced stock market. Now even that may be crumbling. And now the credibility of the central bank is on the line. Many energy market observers say "oversupply" explains oil's price plunge. Others blame the financial turmoil in China. However, we at Elliott Wave International see a rare trend at work that you need to know about. Our last report today also comes from correspondent Bob Stokes.
Updated:First you'll hear from our Chief Commodity analyst, Jeffrey Kennedy. Learn what he thinks of extreme volatility in commodities, he also offers his big picture perspective -- and reveals when he expects the next major low. Our Chief Market Analyst Steve Hochberg recently spoke to a packed house at a San Francisco investment show -- this next clip is an excerpt from that presentation. Steve goes through copper's price action and explains how it can actually be used as a market indicator to foreshadow a weakening economy. In today's last feature, EWI correspondent Bob Stokes also reports commodity prices. As Bob explains, one index recently fell to an 11-year low and commodity price declines have recently accelerated. This downtrend points to a rare economic trend -- deflation.
Updated:Bob's first report takes a look at US Dollar. There was no shortage of U.S. dollar bears during the 2007 to 2009 financial crisis. But the greenback defied the negative sentiment and now trades near 100. Learn what could have helped you anticipate that sharp bounce. In this next feature, correspondent Bob Stokes reports on the CRB Index. As he explains, the downtrend in commodity prices was advertised in the chart pattern long before China's economic slowdown. And now, sentiment has reached a negative extreme. In finance, demand and price move in the same direction. This next report explains how applying the laws of consumer economics to the stock market is a big mistake.
Updated:Matt Lampert, the director of the Socionomics Institute spoke with Dr. Jon Fassett who will bring his knowledge and enthusiasm for fractals in nature and finance to the 2016 Social Mood Conference. Correspondent Bob Stokes brings us our next feature and explains how you can get ahead of gold's rally. Last up today is an analyst spotlight on Jeffrey Kennedy. Learn how Jeff got introduced to the financial markets and ultimately the Wave Principle.
