The Elliott Wave Principle is a form of technical analysis that some traders use to analyze financial market cycles and forecast market trends by identifying extremes in investor psychology, highs and lows in prices, and other collective factors. Ralph Nelson Elliott, a professional accountant, discovered the underlying social principles and developed the analytical tools. He proposed that market prices unfold in specific patterns, which practitioners today call Elliott waves, or simply waves. Elliott published his theory of market behavior in this book "The Wave Principle". Elliott stated that "because man is subject to rhythmical procedure, calculations having to do with his activities can be projected far into the future with a justification and certainty heretofore unattainable."
This Wall Street bestseller is the most useful and comprehensive guide to understanding and applying the Wave Principle. A groundbreaking investment classic, Elliott Wave Principle is hailed by reviewers as the "definitive textbook on the Wave Principle."
A Great Classic for Three Decades: Now In Its 10th Edition, Consider What This "Definitive Text" Offers You Take a moment to look over your books about investing. Have any of them given you a successful method for making profits and reducing risks? Is there even one such book that has proven reliable over the years? Alas, most investors would say "no." That's because so few investment books are "classic" in the true sense: For years investors keep buying the book, and they keep using the method to make the most of their opportunities. Three decades years ago -- 1978 -- is one of the last times an investment book was written that is worthy of being called "classic." One of the two men who authored that book was a 26 year-old market analyst working at Merrill Lynch's headquarters on Wall Street. The young man had earned a lot of attention in a short time by using a forecasting tool that almost no one had heard of. Yet his market forecasts were startlingly accurate: Robert Prechter was the young man's name, and he used a method called the "Elliott Wave Principle." A. J. Frost was one of the few other financial professionals who used the Wave Principle. In a distinguished 20-year career, Frost had likewise made many astonishingly accurate forecasts. His colleagues regarded him as the consummate technical analyst. Frost and Prechter met in May of 1977 and became fast friends. Eighteen months later, they published Elliott Wave Principle - Key to Market Behavior. The Dow Industrials stood at 790. But the brash forecast in this new book called for a Great Bull Market. It became a runaway best seller. Three decades is enough time for investors to deem a book about an investment method as "classic," and surely the jury is in on this one: Elliott Wave Principle is now published in seven languages, and continues to sell thousands of copies every year. In Europe, Asia and the Americas, literally millions of investors worldwide use or recognize the Elliott Wave method for profitable investing. Elliott Wave International is proud to present the 10th edition of this investment classic. It's designed to help the Elliott Wave novice and the veteran practitioner. It's time to consider what this definitive text offers you. Here's a sample of what you'll learn: The basic tenets of Wave Theory: You'll read simple explanations of the terms, and how to identify all 13 waves that can occur in the movement of stock market averages. The rules and guidelines of Wave analysis: You'll learn the basics of counting waves, how to recognize the "right look" of a wave, plus lots of simple steps for applying the rules. The scientific background of the Wave Principle: How you can see it in nature and the universe, in art and mathematics, even in the shape of the human body. Long-term waves: You'll see how the Wave Principle gives history greater meaning, from the fall of the Roman Empire through the Middle Ages into the financial upheavals of the 20th Century. Understanding these monumental trends will help you position yourself for long-term profit and protection. Stocks, commodities and gold: The Wave Principle is your guide to the movements of any financial market. Few pleasures can match the exhilaration you'll feel when a Wave Principle forecast has you in the market when it moves up, or takes you out just before it moves down. Obviously, Elliott Wave Principle - Key to Market Behavior is the perfect companion to Bob Prechter's Elliott Wave Theorist publication. The book is essential reading for you to receive the most from what the Theorist says every month -- in fact, all of EWI's publications continually reference this book.
The Visual Guide to Elliott Wave Trading is an in-depth, easy-to-use guide to trading the financial markets with the Elliott Wave Principle. In many ways this book picks up where Frost & Prechter's classic Elliott Wave Principle: Key to Market Behavior left off, which makes it "required reading" if you want to build a solid foundation in Elliott wave analysis. Co-authored by two of Elliott Wave International's most trusted analysts -- Wayne Gorman and Jeffrey Kennedy -- their trading insights offer a perfect blend of traditional textbook and real-world application. Join Kennedy and Gorman as they provide step-by-step instruction in how to trade with Elliott. They include scores of real market charts that depict the Elliott wave patterns, which will help you measure the strength of trends, forecast market turning points, plus identify trading opportunities. What's more, this illustrated guide also explains how to use supporting technical indicators that can build confidence in your Elliott wave analysis. Gorman and Kennedy know that "simple" does not mean "easy." Their combined expertise will help you build confidence in your analysis, create an effective trading plan, and better manage your trades. Whether your trading style is conservative or aggressive, their charts and techniques can help identify high-confidence opportunities. Each chapter includes key points & smart investor tips, such as how to "Prepare yourself to take advantage of opportunities even when your preferred count does not materialize," and "Let the market commit to you before you commit to the market." Elliott wave analysis recognizes that in financial markets, mass psychology swings from pessimism to optimism and back in a natural sequence. Use this book to recognize those wave patterns, and anticipate market moves that most traders never see coming. The Visual Guide to Elliott Wave Trading is the new criterion for any serious technical trader.
