Churning and Turning

Controlled Chaos at the Top We’re on the cusp of a trend change. The US Dollar Index looks like it has changed trend (but needs confirmation); however, the EURUSD wave pattern is questionable. None of the other USD currency pairs have turned the corner to create a new trend, but they’re not far away from… Read more

Time to Put on Your Shorts

Long Will Be a Bummer This market is exhausted. Gaps are routinely being left open and virtually everything is moving to the beat of the US Dollar. You can also see revolutions starting to break out in countries around the world (Spain, France, Hong Kong, Chile, Ecuador, Haiti, Papua New Guinea, now Iraq, and others)… Read more

The End Game

Two Legs Left I’m providing the following “summary overview” write-up this week which is very similar to what I provide for my Trader’s Gold members, except for the fact that they get an additional video on the immediate market and a host of daily to hourly (and sometimes in small timeframes) charts that provide high… Read more

On Its Last Two Legs

The Last Legs There are two legs left to this rally from December 26, 2018 across all the major US indices. The down leg looks to have started on Friday and with the pulling of the Brexit vote on Saturday, we will likely see more downward movement. (the pound has already reacted negatively). This is… Read more

The US Dollar Index

Dollar at the Center This weekend, we’ve reached the top of the D leg of the contracting fourth wave triangle in the SP500. Expect the E leg down next, followed by a final fifth wave up out of the triangle to a new all time high. The larger pattern is an expanded flat, so following… Read more

Fourth Wave Contracting Triangles

A Pending Top is Waves Away We’re now into the relatively small moves of a final topping process. The US indices have continued to be difficult to predict with any certainty, although it’s been obvious a triangle pattern of some sort is in the works. I’ve warned that I’ve been early in predicting the ending… Read more

Waiting for Godown

Time is marching on, and so is the market, but we still have a top to get in place. It’s a tedious topping process, but nothing much has changed this week. The turn up on Friday afternoon should take us to a new high. Meanwhile …. Mood is Turning Negative I cringe these days at… Read more

Trading Is Patience

Large Heaps of Patience Required Third waves of ending diagonals almost always grind away at the top before they eventually exceed the target and then turn to the downside. That’s certainly the case here, but what makes this topping process even more frustrating to watch is the fact that major asset classes are slowly lining… Read more

Fed Fiasco

Between a Rock and a Hard Place The central bankers of the world are powerless to stop the deflationary situation which is unfolding. They’ve been trying to turn it around for the past 10 years (ever since 2008), but have been unable to do so. The past few days, treasury yields have been rising, but… Read more

The Science of Elliott Wave

The Elliott Wave Principle Book (a peer review) “Elliott Wave” is a science. The more I work with it, the more I am convinced — and my concentration over the past few years has been in refining the core principles,  based upon Elliott’s original work. Understanding of scientific principles evolves over time, as does our… Read more
