, Our Methodology

The tools we use to analyze the various markets are a combination of Elliott Wave Theory, Gann Theory, cyclical analysis, classical charting methods and Wyckoff analysis. Cycles are useful in identifying potential trend changes: Gann in estimating long-term price targets and Elliott Wave theory in determining where in the cycle the market is and what are reasonable short-term targets that can be extrapolated from the cycle. Classical charting methods are used primarily as a “check” to confirm data stemming from all of the above.
Wyckoff analysis is used primarily to further prioritize and filter various Elliott Wave alternatives.
