NEW Mathematical Model For Predicting The NEXT US Stock Market Flash Crash / InvestorEducation / Financial Crash
A new mathematical model has been developed that predicts future significant corrections in the US stock market, but in particular it has the potential to predict the next US stock market flash crash.
- In Q4 2015, a new mathematical model was developed with the potential to predict the next US stock market flash crash, prior to the actual event.
- Originally built to calculate strength in price movement in a stock index, the new model can be used to predict significant periods of price weakness.
- Key market corrections, including the recent stock market flash crash events of May 2010 and August 2015 are correctly identified by the model, in advance.
- In addition, key waterfall type corrections, including February 2009, August 2011 and May 2012 are successfully identified by the model, in advance.
- Predictions for 2016 are presented in this article.

Trading with Elliott wave analysis - GPS vs. Road Map: Which Works Best? (Part 2) / InvestorEducation / Elliott Wave Theory
(Continued; here is part one of this article, if you missed it.)
Think of Trading and Investing as a Trip
Here's my advice: View the Elliott Wave Principle as your road map to the market -- and your investment idea as a trip.
You start the trip with a specific plan in mind, but conditions along the way may force you to alter course. As I mentioned earlier, alternate Elliott wave counts are simply side roads that sometimes end up being the best path.Read full article... Read full article...

Some thoughts on trading forex (and other markets) with Elliott wave analysis
Some of the best stories about global positioning systems (GPS) are the weird detours they sometimes recommend.
A while back, while on a family trip through Great Smoky Mountains National Park, I decided to use my GPS to drive around the park's western boundary to see the wildlife. My old-fashioned map made it look like it would take the better part of the day. But my GPS said the trip would only be about 20 miles long. Little did I know -- until I got there -- that the road from the GPS was only the remnant of an old wagon trail. I had to backtrack and take the path my paper map had originally suggested.Read full article... Read full article...

Market Traders and Trendlines: A Match Made in Opportunity Heaven / InvestorEducation / Learn to Trade
See why this simple tool helps identify high-probability trade set-ups in real world markets
It's the start of the winter holidays -- which, if your family is anything like mine, is also the beginning of a long tradition of deeply regrettable line-crossing, i.e.:
- Crossing that line into interrogating "new" dinner guests as to why they are still single
- Crossing that line into inviting your recently divorced sister-in-law to "stay as long as" she needs
- Crossing that line into a third (no, let's be honest) fourth helping of pecan pie

"A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle." ~ Kahlil Gibran
When it comes to investing, the first rule thing you need to learn is effective management of your emotions. It is impossible to eliminate the impulse to act when euphoria or panic are in the air. While you cannot eliminate the emotion that pushes to you react, you can control your reaction. You can choose to run with the herd of fight panic and stand aside while the herd stampedes. The most important rule is to never let your emotions do the talking. This means not succumbing to panic or euphoria. If you fail here, then nothing can help you. All the rules in the world will fail to alter your outcome.Read full article... Read full article...

Two resources from Elliott Wave International can help you get started
When Ralph Nelson Elliott discovered the Wave Principle nearly 70 years ago, he explained how social (or crowd) behavior trends and reverses in recognizable patterns. You can learn to identify these patterns as they unfold in the financial markets, and use them to help anticipate where prices will go next. Elliott Wave International has developed a free comprehensive online course -- The Elliott Wave Tutorial: 10 Lessons on the Wave Principle -- which describes these patterns and explains how they relate to one another.
To use the Wave Principle as you analyze the markets, you need a basic understanding of the Elliott method -- the rules and guidelines, the literal shape of individual waves, even when the larger trend may turn.Read full article... Read full article...

Anything I've ever done that ultimately was worthwhile... initially scared me to death. ~ Betty Bender
Many individuals and experts state that market timing is impossible. The answer to this question is yes and no. We all know there are seasons in a year and we know roughly when winter, summer, fall, and spring will begin. No one can predict the exact time the one season will transition into the next. The same rationale applies to market timing. If you are trying to predict the exact market turning points, then you might get it right once or twice, but overall your record will be dismal, it is an exercise in futility for the most part and best reserved for those who seem to have a deep desire to take on large losses. Market timing is like waiting for a change in the season.Read full article... Read full article...

"Guessing or going by gut instinct won't work over the long run. If you don't have a defined trading methodology, then you don't have a way to know what constitutes a buy or sell signal. Moreover, you can't even consistently correctly identify the trend." -Jeffrey Kennedy
