The Stock Market Is Patterned, Here's Proof

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYou don't have to sift through the latest economic data as if they were tea leaves.

This is an excerpt from Elliott Wave International's free Club EWI resource, "What Can a Fractal Teach Me About the Stock Market?" by EWI's president Robert Prechter.


In the 1930s, Ralph Nelson Elliott described the stock market as a fractal -- an object that is similarly shaped at different scales. Scientists today recognize financial markets’ price records as fractals, but they presume them to be of the indefinite variety. Elliott found something different:

You see that each “wave” within the overall structure subdivides in a specific way. If the wave is heading in the same direction as the wave of one larger degree, then it subdivides into five waves. If the wave is heading in the opposite direction as the wave of one larger degree, then it subdivides into three waves (or a variation).

Understanding how the market progresses at all degrees of trend gives you an invaluable perspective. No longer do you have to sift through the latest economic data as if they were tea leaves. You gain a condensed view of the whole panorama of essential trends in human social mood and activity, as far back as the data can take you.

OK, now you try it. Figure 3-7 shows an actual price record. Does this record depict two, three, four or five completed waves? Based on your answer, what would you call for next?

Let’s compare your answer with mine. From the simple idea that a bull market comprises five waves, The Elliott Wave Theorist in September 1982 called for the Dow to quintuple to nearly 4000 and on October 6 announced, “Super bull market underway!” The November 8 issue then graphed the forecast for the expected fifth wave up, as you can see in Figure 3-8.

As you can see, Elliott waves are clear not only in retrospect. They are often -- particularly at turning points -- quite clear in prospect.
