GEI's Elliottwave thread
Discuss R.Prechter & S.Hochberg's ideas
Post your own charts, with wave counts
============================

New!: xxx : Link to China vs. Japan thread

GEI is an Affiliate of Elliott Wave International. Near the top of the page, you will find a EWI Banner on GEI, which would give our readers direct access to some of the offerings from EWI, including items like Robert Prechter's 40-page book on Gold & Silver.

Posted Image -- Posted Image
To the Gold & Silver book offer -- This link will take you back to this thread

I am also hopeful that Bob Prechter or Steve Hochberg will be willing to do an interview with Commodity Watch Radio, or even participate in a future GEI conference call.

This thread is to discuss Elliott Wave theory, and the ideas of EWI's two star writers.

At least one of our regular posters has done extremely well using their newsletters, and I think as others get acquainted, they will find EWI's services have good value too.

I certainly think that Conquer the Crash is a must-read, and Bob Prechter has to be consider one of the most articulate members of the Deflationist camp. That's another subject that can be discussed on this thread.

nedgrace.wordpress.com

*excerpt:
Prechter managed to call this year's March bottom, expecting a substantial bear market rally at around 6,300 on the Dow, close to the bottom. However, he expects the market to resume its downward trend shortly, ending with a decline similar to the 86% in real terms of 1929-32 as we are in a long Elliott Wave downswing. That would take the Dow down to around 2,000.
. . .
The current crisis more closely resembles the British crisis of 1972-75, which caused a drop of 72% from the high, or the Japanese crisis after 1990, which brought a drop of 70% within three years, and led to a long-term bear market that has left that market in its current doldrums, about 80% below its peak. For us to see a similar 70% decline from the Dow high, we'd have to be looking at an index that had fallen all the way down to about 4,400. At that point, it would about as cheap as after the 1987 crash, though still not as cheap as it was in 1982, before the great bull market began.

I have already subscribed to Elliot Wave International (the free bit) and nearly finished reading Robert Prechter's 40-page book on Gold & Silver - I was skeptical of EW by the predictions people were making, but I'm eager to learn the basics. The book is quite impressive as Prechter maps out the waves of the late 70's gold bull market in one of his Elliot Wave Theorist reports in December 1979 and says the top is nearly in.

Anyone investing in gold to the eventually peak should hang on to his guys coat-tails - take him seriously because he was completely right in the last gold bull market. It would be great to get more people here understanding and using EW...... it seems very complicated at first, but is slowly sinking in for me at least.

"The unOfficial Elliottwave thread"

GEI is now officially accepted as an affiliate of EWI.

They requested that I change the name of the thread here, which I was happy to do.
There was concern that some people may think that EWI somehow supports or endorses the discussion here. That is not the case, nor do I want to give people that impression.

OTHER CHATS
If people know of other good chatboard discussions about Elliot Wave, Prechter or EWI, I am happy to post links to them in the header.

I want things here to be as open as possible, but I dont think it is appropriate to lift charts from EWI's copyrighted material. But our own wave counts should be fine. I will soon post some of my own wave count charts.

It will be interesting to see if we pick up new members on GEI who come here specifically to discuss Elliott Wave related trading concepts. They are most welcome

Tom Obrien is labelling the recent trading as "distributiion" because...

Stocks make fresh highs, and then fail to hold them.
These moves are coming with unimpressive volume, suggesting the move is "running out of juice"
(ie volume and momentum), as Tom puts it.



That's my Elliott Wave count on recent days

Volume on the new highs is less than it was back at the High marked by a "3"

I will be getting EWI's reports for the next few weeks.
I cannot copy them here obviously, neither the charts. But maybe I can give a little of the flavor.

Their count is similar to my own (above) albeit much more detailed.

Friday's action on Wall Street, they describe as "solidly bearish", with more stocks up than down.

A break of Wednesday's low (SPX-928, at "little 4") would be the first sign that something nastier is developing.

EWI is expecting Gold to drop sharply, possibly below the Oct.2008 low of $681.
The reckon a dollar rally is still underway, since "percentage bulls" got down to just 6%

(This was at the end of the March Elliott Wave Theorist/ EWT.
It is non-proprietary news, so I dont think they will mind if I publish it here):

"The Ludwig von Mises Institute kindly posted an expanded version of the "Jaguar Inflation" piece that appeared in the February 2004 issue of EWT. You are welcome to read this longer version at: http://mises.org/story/3329 "

Georgia must be the most progressive state in the union. Two members of the Georgia House of Reprsentatives have sponsored a "Constitutional Tender Act", that would "require that any bank conducting business with the state accept gold and silver coins as deposits*... This bill won't pass, at least not this year. But I predict a far friendlier climate for honest money as the bear market progresses.

U.S. likely to lose AAA rating - Prechter

Tue Jun 16, 2009 .. By John Parry

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Technical analyst Robert Prechter on Monday said he sees the United States losing its top AAA credit rating by the end of 2010, as he stuck by a deeply bearish outlook on the U.S. economy and stock market.

Prechter, known for predicting the 1987 stock market crash, joins a growing coterie of market heavyweights in forecasting the United States will lose its top credit rating as the government issues trillions of dollars in debt to fund efforts to bail out the economy.

Fears about the long-term vulnerability of the prized U.S. credit rating came to the fore after Standard & Poor's in May lowered its outlook on Britain, threatening the UK's top AAA rating. That move raised fears that the United States could face a similar risk, with the hefty amounts of government debt issued in both countries to pay for financial rescues causing budget deficits to swell.

Prechter, speaking at the Reuters Investment Outlook Summit in New York, said he sees investors' confidence in an economic rebound fading, a trend that will drag the S&P 500 stock index well below the March 6 intraday low of 666.79 by the end of this year or early next.

"There will be a leg down in stock prices, and it will affect all other areas," including corporate bonds and commodities, said Prechter, who is executive officer at research company Elliott Wave International, based in Gainesville, Georgia.

Prechter's nuanced approach to gold and silver.

Gold is Still Money
by Robert Prechter, President, Elliott Wave International | June 12, 2009

http://financialsens.../2009/0612.html
QUOTE
Promissory notes issued by a state and declared the only legal tender are always doomed to depreciate to worthlessness because of the natural incentives and forces associated with governments. A state cannot resist a method of confiscating assets, particularly one that is hidden from the view of most voters and subjects. By extension, it is unreasonable to advocate a standard for such notes, which is simply a state’s promise that its currency will always be redeemable in a specific amount of something valuable, such as gold. A gold standard of this type is only as good as the political promises behind it, reducing its value to no more than that of paper. It could be argued, in fact, that a state-sponsored gold standard is far more dangerous than none at all, as it imbues citizens with a false sense of security. Their long range plans are thus built upon an unreliable promise that the monetary measuring unit will remain stable. Later, when the government’s “IOU-something specific” becomes, as Colonel E.C. Harwood put it, “IOU nothing in particular,” reliability disappears and the arbitrary reigns. Although the populace tends to retain its confidence in the currency for awhile thereafter, the ultimate result is chaos.

The only sound monetary system is a voluntary one. The free market always chooses the best possible form, or forms, of money. To date, the market’s choice throughout the centuries, wherever a free market for money has existed, has been and remains precious metal and currency redeemable in precious metal. This preference will undoubtedly remain until a better form of money is discovered and chosen. Until then, prices for goods and services should be denominated not in state fictions such as dollars or yen or francs, but in specific weights of today’s preferred monetary metal, i.e., in grams of gold. Anyone might issue promissory notes as currency, but the acceptance of such paper certificates would then be an individual decision, and risks of loss through imprudence or dishonesty would be borne by only a few individuals by their own conscious choice after considering the risks. Critical to the understanding of the wisdom of such a system is the knowledge that private issuers of paper against gold have every long run incentive to provide a sound product, just as do producers of any product. As a result, risks would be minimal, as the market would provide its own policing. Thievery and imprudence will not disappear among men, but at least such tendencies in a free market for money would not have the potential to be institutionalized, as they are when a state controls the currency. From a macroeconomic viewpoint, occasional losses resulting from dishonesty or imprudence would be extremely limited in scope, as opposed to the nationwide disasters that state controlled paper money has facilitated throughout history, which have in turn had global repercussions. As Elliott Wave Principle put it, “That paper is no substitute for gold as a store of value is probably another of nature’s laws.”

That being said, it is also true, and crucial to wise investing, that markets come in both “bull” and “bear” types. Being a “gold bug” at the wrong time can be very costly in currency terms. For nearly three decades, gold and silver’s dollar price trends have confounded the precious metals enthusiasts, who for the entire period have argued that soaring gold and silver prices were “just around the corner” because the Fed’s policies “guarantee runaway inflation.” Yet today, 29 years after the January 1980 peaks in these metals and despite consistent inflation throughout this time, their combined dollar value (weighting each metal equally) is still 40 percent less than it was then.

It is all well and good to despise fiat money, but it is hardly useful to sit in gold and silver as if no other opportunities exist. In contrast to the one-note approach, which has had an immense opportunity cost since 1980, competent market analysis can help you make many timely and profitable financial decisions in all markets, including gold and silver.


Modern money "shorts" the currency, and is backed by debt. The debt is real. A debt deflation will lead to a prolonged period of deleveraging, where the short-covering of currencies will strengthen currencies relative to asset prices. At the global level, in the FX market, central currencies will benefit from deleveraging at the expense of peripheral currencies. Due to instability and uncertainty, gold will benefit against all currencies as it continues to be re-monetized.

Hold on to your hats for hyper-deflation, where cash is king, and gold the King of cash.

I've got a lot of time for Mr Prechter and the EWI and Socionomist makes great reading. He is also a self professed Gold Bug-caveat- at the right time...

However for as long as I can remember he has made the wrong calls, consistently, regarding gold. Back in 2004 he was suggesting that we had deflation and gold would drop to 200 dollars (about 400 at the time). In 2006 he was saying it'd drop to 400 and now in 2009 he is saying it will drop to 720. Ummm. There is a part where he says that gold COULD be in a cyclical bull within a bear.

And of course he COULD be right. But I dont think so. Now gold dropping to 720 (havent we recently HAD that back in Autumn?) would be a bonus chance to buy, IMO. And it looks possible if you study the charts factoring in some more juicy de-leveraging. But it looks UNLIKELY and you would be wise to average in when the chances pop up on the dips (like now-ish?).

Despite this error re gold, he has always suggested that there are far better ways and have been far better ways up to now to make more money in other investments than gold. And I dare say he is right if you are into the wheeling/dealing/shorting ways of the professionals. But we are not all at that point, nor have the time to become full time Traders. Some of us are teachers and nurses, musicians and artists. I would find it refreshing if at some point he would come out and say 'Listen guys, we all make bad calls and my mistake keeping y'all out of the gold bull before my eyes was, well, a major cock up, and you should have been IN from 2000-so sorry.'

Of course his original crash analysis is brilliant and he could be right. Gold could go all the way back down to xxdollars. I really dont know. I don't think Alf Fields agrees though. And nor would Ian Gordon. In all honesty I don't think even he thinks it will bomb out so much. He recently suggests that it is wise to have xx% of wealth in physical gold as insurance, and it can't hurt to own a bit of silver, despite it going to be REAL CHEAP in 2012...if you can get your hands on any then, oh and by the way it might run out by 2021, lalala.

As with beer, cigars, and chocolate it is better to not gorge oneself on gold and silver, but it would be unwise to be without what you fancy. So a little bit of moderation and just keep chipping away. At some point for you or your children it will come in handy to say the least...and might do a lot more.


"We are reaping what has been sown over the last three decades of creating a grotesquely unequal society with an ethos of grab as much as you can by any means. A society of looters created by MPs and their expenses, bankers and their bonuses, tax-evading corporations, hacking journalists, bribe-taking police officers, and now a group of alienated kids are seizing their chance. This is not to condone but to understand." - John McDonnell MP

Good post. I wonder if Prechter has now realised that the dollar is in trouble. This would make al world od difference for a deflationist's view of gold.

Thanks for that Dr Bubb.

So we got Neely saying down to 500 next week(?) and Prechter saying up to 1100 temporarily before continuing down to lows of 2008.

I'm interested to see how Neely thinks long term. For Prechter the long term weather radar says rain and depression for a long time, like years of deflation, within which we'll see sunny spells where the fleet footed can make a bundle while the eternal optimists and long termers will get shorn. This is generally his picture I think and I agree with him, except perhaps for gold because what else will there be to run to?

Now what is Neely's long term view Dr Bubb? Any hints?
"We are reaping what has been sown over the last three decades of creating a grotesquely unequal society with an ethos of grab as much as you can by any means. A society of looters created by MPs and their expenses, bankers and their bonuses, tax-evading corporations, hacking journalists, bribe-taking police officers, and now a group of alienated kids are seizing their chance. This is not to condone but to understand." - John McDonnell MP

I think you may find that earlier in the Neowave Warning thread - I havent time to look now.

From memory, he sees something bad short term, but longer term, he sees big rallies coming, I believe.
If he is right, it might be simply because rising inflation ignites higher stock prices

Hi Dr Bubb,

Great link and an interesting article although I don't really understand the link with Elliot waves.

I thought Elliot waves were invented by a clever chappy who managed to predict direction of future sentiment:



I can see how this could be used for long term plays (like the current recession playing out) but how do people use it in normal day to day trades?

Do many people here understand Elliot waves? can they be reproduced by individuals? Has anyone had any luck successfully deciphering and applying this technique?

If anyone has any personal experience I would be very interested to hear about it smile.gif

Edit to add: sorry if this is a noob question unsure.gif
“And I tell you we have learned from past mistakes.
Just as you cannot spend your way out of recession, you cannot, in a global economy, simply spend your way through recovery either.”

(Gordon Brown, Labour Party Annual Conference, 29 September 1997)
