Q: What are some sample market trend forecasts you have made in the past?

A: On February 25, 2009, We wrote a long article forecasting a bull market was about to start and nobody knew it.  We outline our reasonings when nearly every “expert” in the market was decidedly bearish.  12 days later the market bottoms and turned up for 10 months.

In early August 2009, We forecasted a huge bull leg in Gold and Gold stocks.  The HUI index rallied north of 50% in the next 4 months and Gold rose from 900 to $1220 an ounce.

In November of 2009 with the market correcting hard, we forecast that the Bull was not over yet.  The market bottomed and rallied strongly into mid-January 2010.

On January 18th, 2010, we forecast that all of the requirements for a “Market Top” had been met.  The market topped the following day and then the Dow dropped over 800 points in a few weeks.

Q: What Is Elliott Wave Theory?

A: The Elliott Wave Theory or Principle is a detailed description of how groups of people behave. There are common patterns of mass psychology swings from pessimism to optimism and back in a natural sequence. These are repeated throughout history no matter what type of market or economy we may be in. The financial markets are one of the best places to trace Elliott Wave patterns and benefit and profit from it when correctly forecasted. The theory is based on Ralph Nelson Elliott who studied human behavior in the 1920’s and 1930’s and it later came to be called Elliott Wave Theory.


Q: How does Elliott Wave Analysis or Forecasting work?

A: Elliott wave analysis involves deciphering the crowd behavioral or psychological orientation of the investment crowd through the wave patterns evolving in various stock markets. We use a combination of traditional technical analysis indicators combined with media and sentiment patterns, along with Elliott Wave chart patterns to identify what stage we may be in for Gold, the SP 500, and even individual stocks and ETF’s.


Q: Is there only one way to use Elliott Wave Analysis?

A: No, in fact, you can often get very opposing views from various Elliotticians on the status of the market and the wave patterns. We pride ourselves in thinking a bit outside the box of most Elliott Wave Forecasters and pinpointing key turn points in the markets and precious metals before they become obvious.


Q: Is Elliott Wave Theory accurate?

A: It depends on the Elliott Wave Analyst and how proficient they may be in assessing the wave patterns. For sure, it requires constant assessment, forecasting, and adjustment in advance of major moves. We think this is where we stand out from the crowd.


Q: Can you apply Elliott Wave analysis to stocks or sectors?

A: Most definitely yes you can. They tend to work best when an individual stock or sector or ETF has enough volume and human participation. Thinly traded stocks are more difficult to project Elliott Wave forecasts on due to lack of enough participants. However, precious metals, stock index’s, major sector ETF’s and thousands of individual stocks can be good candidates for Elliott Wave analysis.
