We have one of the most persistent rallies in history that’s coming to an end. We’ve been stalking a short entry for awhile now, but it isn’t… Read More

A Teetering Top

Teetering Get Ready! US indices and Oil are setting up for a final top and currencies, for the most part, are going to drop a bit to accommodate them. In the currency pair world, we’re a bit of a mess this weekend, with non-confirmations between them. EURUSD has already turned the corner and in the… Read More

Unravelling a Complex Topping Process

“At the extremes, the herd is always wrong. One should not under estimate its capacity for stupidity.” The Secret Life of Real Estate, Phil Anderson,  p 329 I attended a meeting this weekend — an association meeting with my speaking peers. These are professional speakers (and those who would like to be). I have often… Read More

Gravity Always Wins in the End

As the World Turns We’re at a full Elliott Wave count in the US indices, as we are in exchanges around the world. The next major move is to the downside. They may not all turn on the same day, but they should turn more or less together. Below is a selection of exchanges from… Read More

The Top is at Hand
