ELLIOTT WAVE ANALYSIS - Latest Market Commentary

Stock Indices

21st February 2018 - U.S. indices have reached near-optimum upside levels for the completion of February’s counter-trend rally. The downside risk of continuing January’s zig zag decline is heightened, especially### after the late-Wednesday FOMC news failed to inspire anything other than a modest push higher. The Federal Reserve ‘minutes’ confirmed that committee members were not concerned about rising inflationary pressures that might have prompted a more aggressive stance in hiking interest rates. The late-session swing lower by the S&P and Nasdaq 100 has all the hallmarks of a nascent impulse... Read full summary in our latest report!

21st February 2018 - The US$ dollar index upside rally from last week’s low of 88.26 represents the third sequence within a more complex 4th wave corrective pattern within November’s impulse downtrend. Whether this turns out to be a### triangle or an expanding flat remains to be seen, but we won’t have to wait too long. Some late dollar buying was being pushed into late-session trading Wednesday following the FOMC ‘minutes’ release. In actual fact, the committee’s lack of concern over rising inflationary pressures would normally have sent the dollar lower, but it was attracting some safe-haven buying as stock market gains went into reverse before the close. The Euro/US$... Read full summary in our latest report!

21st February 2018 - The Federal Reserve released their ‘minutes’ from last month’s meeting but with no big surprises. The notes showed that several committee members expected inflationary### pressured to trend higher during the coming year but only a couple were concerned about the possibility of the U.S. economy overheating. The central bank raised its inflation projection based upon its expectation that the core personal consumption expenditure index would rise notably faster from December’s...

21st February 2018 - The late-afternoon (U.S.), evening/early-morning (Europe/Asia) release of the FOMC ‘minutes’ from January’s meeting maintained this week’s US$ dollar advance as officials said they were unconcerned### about rising inflationary pressures. Despite that, the central bank raised its inflation projection which was responsible for the steadier currency although the US$ dollar index was testing some upside resistance into the close. Should the currency reverse lower Thursday/Friday as we expect, then this would provide the platform for the next advance in precious metals. Gold has been on the back-foot all week since the dollar began to move back inside its February trading range but support lies just beneath current levels at February’s earlier low of 1306.95. The next major development is forecasting gold to trade higher and break above the July ’16 high of 1375.27 – but this is still considered to attract new buyers in a ‘fake-out’ push rather than a sustainable ‘break-out’.Read full summary in our latest report!



Bloomberg hosted a Precious Metals Forum on 23rd May and WaveTrack International was invited to present our latest Elliott Wave price-forecasts. The event was sponsored by the CME Group and Johnson Matthey.



  • The 2013 outlook for global stock indices and commodities remains very bullish and is entering the last stage of the ‘inflation-pop’ phase that originally began from the post-financial crisis lows of 2008/09
  • This is expected to ignite another period of asset buying that increases risk-on multiples by a minimum 45% per cent and in some cases as much as +300% per cent, sending some global stock indices and commodities into record highs
  • Shorter-term, there is a danger of a downward adjustment of -5-8% per cent, but then sharp price advances to resume
  • Commodity related stock indices and equities are expected to outperform as a sector during the next 12-16 months
  • Banking stocks to participate, but most will not exceed their pre-financial crisis highs

As always, this year’s Outlook & Forecasts for the next twelve months are created applying the Elliott Wave Principle for the assessment of pattern and price amplitude, also Cycle Analysis for the timing of the larger trend reversals. Not always do they jive, but they seldom contradict and more often, provide valuable insights into one or two variations of a similar theme within a seemingly unlimited amount of possibilities.

Even though this report outlines the price expectancy of all asset classes for 2012 it will also illustrate how this coming year fits together into the larger picture. The reasoning behind this is to move away from the 'black-box' stereotype and show you why the results relate to their specific outcome. Overall, this report deals with two different time-periods – long-term and inter-mediate term. Long-term refers to the uptrends from the Great Depression of 1932 onwards and inter-mediate term for the coming year and into 2013.


What do you see when looking at an Elliott Wave chart? Just lots of numbers & letters overlaying the price data? – or do you see definable patterns that are immediately familiar? And how do you interpret the results of the analysis and put it into an effective trading plan? Read on and test your own knowledge of these subjects and much more...


Recent reports of a Commodity Super-Cycle grabbed my attention for two reasons – first, this is diametrically different to the outlook I foresee developing during the next decade, and second, this terminology has surfaced at a time when various commodities have already undergone large percentage gains measured from the Feb.'09 lows


The primary theme of this presentation focuses on a 'Deflationary' outlook, forecast as the dominant aspect continuing during the next decade. This is derived from analysing the Elliott Wave pattern structure of the CRB (Cash) Index during its expansionary period of the last 76 years.


The Update Alert! messaging service of EW-Forecast Plus responded to the sharp collapse and the following recovery of US stock indices during the volatile trading session on the 6th May.


This analysis centres around the S&P 500 that is used as a proxy for other global indices. The great bull market beginning from the 1932 low ends 68 years later in 2000 - other global indices peaked later in 2007 (75yrs) – some still continuing to progress.

"I just wanted to congratulate you on the EW-Compass reports launch. I'd say all the work you've all put into this project is well worth it… never cease to be amazed by the harmony that you find between the fib relations you highlight and the Elliott count you propose. You are a true descendant of RNE, and I'm quite sure he'd have really loved to see your work… Another aspect that sets you apart is your deep knowledge of the how and why of pattern relationships between higher & lower degrees of the same price action. So much to learn there". - T.S.



The Wave Principle, often referred to as Elliott Wave is a unique methodology that applies Natures Laws, those encompassing the Natural Sciences and Universal Geometric Philosophies to the financial markets. It allows us to view price fluctuations as an organised process that can be non-linearly extrapolated to gain a glimpse into the future direction of trends, counter-trends and amplitudes on any market or contract traded around the world.

Expanding Diagonal Patterns - Do they actually exist? - Elliott's inclusion of the Contracting Diagonal

In R.N.Elliott's original treatise of "The Wave Principle (1938)", he introduces us to diagonal patterns for the first time on page 21. Under the heading, Triangles, Elliott describes the difference between horizontal triangles that represent hesitation within an ongoing, progressive trend and diagonal triangles that form the concluding 5th wave of a larger five wave sequence.
