Top 3 Technical Trading Tools Part 1: Japanese Candlesticks / InvestorEducation / Learn to Trade

By: EWI

"I always will be an Elliottician, but other technical tools have merit and are indeed worthwhile: they allow me to build a case, build a more confident reason for making a forecast and for taking a trade; making a trading decision."

-Jeffrey Kennedy

I recently asked Trader's Classroom editor Jeffrey Kennedy to name 3 of his favorite technical tools (besides the Wave Principle). He told me that Japanese candlesticks, RSI, and MACD Indicators are great methods to support Elliott wave trade setups.

The Books You Most Likely Read about Investing Taught You Nothing about Investing / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: John_Mauldin

BY JARED DILLIAN : Lots of people ask me for good beginner books about finance.

That’s one of the hardest questions I get.

I think back to when I was learning about finance—one of my Coast Guard shipmates had these things called “mutual funds,” so I found some free literature about mutual funds and started reading.

The Socionomic Theory of Finance By Robert Prechter - Book Review / InvestorEducation / Elliott Wave Theory

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Here is my review of Robert Prechter's latest BOOK "The Socionomic Theory of Finance", which is a 800 page monster of a work. I first became aware of the Robert Prechter's writings in the 1980's as his book "The Major Works of R. N. Elliot" was my first foray into Elliott Wave Theory, in which Robert Prechter was already in the last few pages seeking to go beyond Elliott Wave Theory, and now 30 years later here is the latest manifestation of Robert Prechter's journey into a socioeconomic model of markets and economies that began as elliott wave theory.

BY JARED DILLIAN : There are a lot of times in my life where I wish I was just a computer and didn’t have feelings. I’d probably be a much better trader.

And that’s what this piece is about. We’re all human beings, trading and investing, trying to make money, but these things called emotions get in the way.

Most trading experts will tell you to get rid of your emotions altogether, to get as close to being a computer as possible.

Why Online Trading Platforms Are Useful for Everyone / InvestorEducation / Learn to Trade

By: Submissions

Despite the accessibility of online trading platforms, these entities remain synonymous with novice investors and those are new to their respective markets. After all, online platforms are largely attributed with eradicating many of the barriers to entry that once surrounded the financial marketplace, making it accessible to everyday citizens and part-time day traders.

While there is some truth to this, it is unfair to claim that online trading platforms only offer value to novices. In fact, they offer value to every single trader, regardless of their experience level and the individual strategies that they use to execute orders.

Elliott Wave Theory: Is Elliott’s Theory Enough? / InvestorEducation / Elliott Wave Theory

By: ElliottWave-Forecast

By Daud Bhatti : Elliott wave Theory: Is Elliott’s Theory a system in itself?

As many traders know, The Elliott wave Theory is a form of technical analysis that finance 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. Elliott’s Theory was developed by Ralph Nelson Elliott and published in 1938 in the book The Wave Principle. The Theory states that collective investor psychology, or crowd psychology, moves between optimism and pessimism in natural sequences. These mood swings create patterns evidenced in the price movements of markets at every degree of trend or time scale.

Robert Prechter Talks About Elliott Waves and His New Book / InvestorEducation / Elliott Wave Theory

By: EWI

Avi Gilburt of ElliottWaveTrader.net conducted a thoughtful interview with Bob Prechter recently. We thought you'd like to see it.

1. How did you come across Elliott wave analysis?

My dad subscribed to Richard Russell's Dow Theory Letters, and he would occasionally forward his copies to me. In 1968, Russell began writing about A.J. Frost's Elliott wave work. He published wave interpretations for the Dow off and on through late 1974, when he called the end of the bear market. During that time, I began charting gold and gold stocks, labeling the waves. After I became a professional technician at Merrill Lynch in 1975, I went on a search for Elliott's original books, which were published in ring binders. The Library of Congress didn't have them. Finally I found copies on microfilm in the New York Public Library. It was a thrill coming across those listings on library cards. In 1980, I republished Elliott's original books and articles in what is now called R.N. Elliott's Masterworks. Later I published all of Bolton's, Frost's and Russell's Elliott wave writings along with bios and notes.

The Myth of Market Shocks / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: EWI

An Excerpt from Chapter 1 of The Socionomic Theory of Finance

By Robert Prechter

Few people find a new theory accessible until they first see errors in the old way of thinking. Part I of this book challenges the universally accepted paradigm under which humans' rational reactions to exogenous (external, or externally generated) causes purportedly account for financial market behavior. The current chapter explores whether dramatic news events affect financial markets.

How Moving Averages Can Identify a Trade / InvestorEducation / Learn to Trade

By: EWI

These 3 charts help you understand how moving averages work

Moving averages are a popular tool for technical traders because they can "smooth" price fluctuations in any chart. Senior Analyst Jeffrey Kennedy gives a clear definition:

"A moving average is simply the average value of data over a specified time period, and it is used to figure out whether the price of a stock or commodity is trending up or down... one way to think of a moving average is that it's an automated trend line."

Here's What Makes Elliott Waves a Useful Forex Tool / InvestorEducation / Forex Trading

By: EWI

Some Elliott wave forex traders do watch the news -- but for different reasons

Last Friday, EURUSD rallied strongly. Said Reuters:

"The U.S. dollar tumbled against a basket of major currencies...on U.S. political uncertainty after the FBI said it would review more emails related to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's private email use."

It's true that the euro rallied after Friday’s news. But we pointed out in our October 21 story that Elliott wave patterns had already been calling for a bottom, if only a temporary one.

Stock Market Investment Success Through the “Investment Rule of 72” / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Christopher_Quigley

The issue of successful stock market investment affects us all. Even if we are not directly engaged in the industry, all of us will need some form of pension to fund our retirement. Whether we like it or not most of our retirement funds will find their way into the financial markets. For this very reason, the issue of pensions has moved politically centre stage; in particular the investment strategies used to administer pension funds. Due to mismanagement, mainly over the last decade, many retirement portfolios have become under-funded at best, or, at worst, totally bust. This situation is a direct result of the managed funds having been speculated rather than invested. Many cynics will say that the whole investment environment today has more of the characteristics of a casino than of a professional market of equities and, therefore, they doubt that one can ever achieve a faithful and fair return on capital. However, this view is erroneous. This essay sets out to explain how to achieve superior pension investment returns through a simple yet powerful investment rule: “the rule of 72. This rule is based on investment and not speculation yet if you faithfully apply it your returns, over time, will be spectacular. Many believe that such degree of return is only possible through “speculative activity”. They are wrong and I will explain.
