Robert Prechter's Stock Market Elliott Wave Cycle Forecast

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010 May 24, 2010 - 12:38 AM GMT

By: EWI

Stock-Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe August 2009 issue listed the range for typical retracement as being from 9368 to 11,620. This is a wide range, but there is nothing we can do about it; second waves have a lot of leeway. The illustration shown in that issue is reproduced below alongside an update of market prices. The Dow has so far stayed within the normal range."


Read Part One of Robert Prechter's Latest Two-Part, April-May Theorists FREE The April-May Theorist series entitled "Deadly Bearish Big Picture" reveals a lucid picture for 2010-2016.

For some time, I had tracked a 3.3 year cycle, which was distinct from 1978 to 1997 and then disappeared. The venerable 4 year cycle was distinct from 1962 to 2001. There was a minor pullback into late 2006, and if the 4-year cycle were still operating, its next low would be due in late 2010. This is one reason why I expected a sharp rally off the 2009 low and then a crash. This rally has been sharp, but it has gone on too long to.........
