A flat correction differs from a zigzag in that the subwave sequence is 3-3-5, as shown in Figures 1 and 2. Since the first actionary wave,

Definition and Formula For BULL/BEAR RATIO


The Bull/Bear Ratio is a market sentiment indicator. Dr. Martin Zweig sums up sentiment indicators in his book Winning On Wall Street by saying, “Beware of the crowd when the crowd is too one-sided.” Extreme optimism on the part of the public and even professionals almost always coincides with market tops.Extreme pessimism almost always coincides with market bottoms.


The Bull/Bear Ratio is calculated by dividing the number of bullish advisors by the number of bullish plus bearish advisors. The number of neutral advisors is ignored.

High readings of the Bull/Bear Ratio are bearish (there are too many bulls) and low readings are bullish (there are not enough bulls). In almost every case, extremely high or low readings have coincided with market tops or bottoms. Historically, readings above 60% have indicated extreme optimism (which is bearish for the market) and readings below 40% have indicated extreme pessimism (which is bullish for the market).


The following chart shows the Bull/Bear Ratio and the S&P 500.

“Buy” arrows were drawn on the S&P 500 when the advisors were extremely bearish and “sell” arrows were drawn when advisors were extremely bullish.

Technical Analysis for .. ..Why?

How to investment in the stock market benefited from the technical Analysis.

What is Technical Analysis?

Technical Analysis is the study of supply and demand in the stock market, by comparing the history of stock price movements and volume (the number of shares traded).  Understanding the way the price moves in relation to the Open, High, Low and Closing Prices on a given minute, hour, day, week or month and comparing that to the volume can give an insight into future market direction.  The data required is usually displayed in a Stock Chart so it is easily consumed.

The science / art of technical analysis usually falls into different areas of study:

   1. Supply & Demand – Stock Price Movement vs Volume
   2. Trend Following – understanding what trends are
   3. Waves & Cycle Analysis – understanding how markets move
   4.Stock Charts – Price – plotting price in charts to understand the history of the Stock,
   5.Share or Market   Index using Bars, Candlesticks or Point and Figure Charting.
   6.Trend Interpretation – Drawing Trend Lines – Support and Resistance Lines

   7. Price Indicators – the study of price based chart indicators or Oscillators know as Stochastics,”Relative Strength Index” (RSI), “Rate of Change” (ROC), “Moving Averages” (MA), “Moving Average Convergence Divergence” (MACD), Parabolic SAR, ADX Average Direction Movement Index.

    8.Study of Volume – understanding how the level of volume has a relationship with price – and how price has a relationship with volume.

    9.Study of Price Volume Indicators – “On Balance Volume” (OBV), Chaikins Money Flow,
“Time Segmented Volume” (TSV), MoneyStream.

    10.Market Sentiment – understanding the madness of crowds

ELLIOTT WAVE _ Triangles

Triangles appear to reflect a balance of forces, causing a sideways movement that is usually associated with decreasing volume and volatility. Triangles contain five overlapping waves that subdivide 3-3-3-3-3 and are labeled a-b-c-d-e. A triangle is delineated by connecting the termination points of waves a and c, and b and d. Wave e can undershoot or overshoot the a-c line, and in fact, our experience tells us that it happens more often than not.

There are two varieties of triangles: contracting and expanding. Within the contracting variety, there are three types: symmetrical, ascending, and descending, as illustrated in Figure . There are no variations on the rarer expanding triangle. It always appears as depicted in Figure, which is why Elliott termed it a “reverse symmetrical” triangle.
Figure  depicts contracting triangles as taking place within the area of preceding price action, in what may be termed regular triangles. However, it is extremely common for wave b of a contracting triangle to exceed the start of wave a in what may be termed a running  triangle, as shown in Figure 1. Despite their sideways appearance, all triangles, including running triangles, effect a net retracement of the preceding wave at wave’s end.

Examples Thereare several real life examples of triangles in the charts in this course. As you will notice, most of the subwaves in a triangle are zigzags, but sometimes one of the subwaves (usually wave c) is more complex than the others and can take the shape of a regular or expanded flat or multiple zigzag. In rare cases, one of the sub-waves (usually wave e) is itself a triangle, so that the entire pattern protracts into nine waves. Thus, triangles, like zigzags, occasionally display a development that is analogous to an extension. One example occurred in silver from 1973 through 1977.
Although upon extremely rare occasions a second wave in an impulse appears to take the form of a triangle, triangles nearly always occur in positions prior to the final actionary wave in the pattern of one larger degree, i.e., as wave four in an impulse, wave B in an A-B-C, or the final wave X in a double or triple zig-zag or combination.A triangle may also occur as the final actionary pattern in a corrective combination, although even then it always precedes the final actionary wave in the pattern of one larger degree than the corrective combination.
In the stock market, when a triangle occurs in the fourth wave position, wave five is sometimes swift and travels approximately the distance of the widest part of the triangle. Elliott used the word “thrust” in referring to this swift, short motive wave following a triangle. The thrust is usually an impulse but can be an ending diagonal. In powerful markets, there is no thrust, but instead a prolonged fifth wave. So if a fifth wave following a triangle pushes past a normal thrust measurement,it is signaling a likely protracted wave. Post-triangle advancing impulses in commodities at degrees above Intermediate are usually the longest wave in the sequence,
On the basis of our experience with triangles, as the example in Figure illustrates, we propose that often the time at which the boundary lines of a contracting triangle reach an apex coincides exactly with a turning point in the market. Perhaps the frequency of this occurrence would justify its inclusion among the guidelines associated with the Wave Principle.
The term “horizontal” as applied to triangles refers to these corrective triangles in general, as opposed to the term “diagonal”. Thus, the terms “horizontal triangle” and “diagonal triangle” denote these specific forms under the Wave Principle. The simpler terms “triangle” and “wedge” may be substituted, but keep in mind that technical chart readers have long used these terms to communicate less specifically subdivided forms defined only by overall shape. Having separate terms can be useful.
Corrective Combinations
Double and Triple Threes

Fig 1
Elliott called sideways combinations of corrective patterns “double threes” and “triple threes.” While a single three is any zigzag or flat, a triangle is an allowable final component of such combinations and in this context is called a “three.” A double or triple three, then, is a combination of simpler types of corrections, including the various types of zigzags, flats and triangles. Their occurrence appears to be the flat correction’s way of extending sideways action. As with double and triple zigzags, each simple corrective pattern is labeled W, Y and Z. The reactionary waves, labeled X, can take the shape of any corrective pattern but are most commonly zigzags.
Combination of threes were labeled differently by Elliott at different times, although the illustrative pattern always took the shape of two or three juxtaposed flats, as shown in Figures. However, the component patternsalways took the shape of two or three juxtaposed flats, as shown in Figures 1-45 and 1-46. However, the component patterns more commonly alternate in form. For example, a flat followed by a triangle is a more typical type of double three, as illustrated in Figure 1.
A flat followed by a zigzag is another example, as shown in Figure 1-48. Naturally, since the figures in this section depict corrections in bull markets, they need only be inverted to observe them as upward corrections in bear markets.
For the most part, double threes and triple threes are horizontal in character. Elliott indicated that the entire formations could slant against the larger trend, although we have never found this to be the case. One reason is that there never appears to be more than one zigzag in a combination. Neither is there more than one triangle. Recall that triangles occurring alone precede the final movement of a larger trend. Combinations appear to recognize this character and sport triangles only as the final wave in a double or triple three.

Importance of Stock Market quotes_How to investors to trade stocks

Stock prices are important for investors to know how a stock is bought or sold on the market. Without this information it would be almost impossible for investors to trade stocks bought and sold. Being able to see the offer of a selection of price / demand is what makes possible the investment in shares. If you need to call your agent by phone to ask, would a long time and may lose many opportunities to enter or exit at the right time. There would also be the possibility that the corridor is flooded with calls and can not respond to everyone. This could mean that you will not have access to trading in the market.

The exchanges around the world provide important stock market for investors in the stock market today. Information on stock prices is transmitted to the electronic communications network that allows investors to see the share price. ECN can provide some quotes from different systems and therefore more likely to sell or buy with other market participants. Technical analysis of stocks would be very difficult because he watched the movements of price and volume. Without stock charts detail the story of a company share prices, technical analysis would be less effective in predicting future movements.

When investors have a selection of equity, must know what the price is so that they can act effectively. Trading styles, such as scalping, swing trading or shaving should not be necessary, because they all require information on purchasing / work effectively. Stock market quotations are not always what we see today. Previously, investors were not able to say how the market moved on a daily basis. We cannot not tell if it was a bullish trend, down trend or a sideways trend but then they are usually invested in bonds as a way to make money because the stock market was not considered much appreciated. Over time, various indices started to add information such as the volume of trade and prices.

Professional traders who trade stocks, or work for a living have access to financial institutions dealing desk. This ensures that as soon gives way will be implemented immediately. Most retailers are normal accounts, which are directly linked to the ECNs, which are delayed stock quotes. Quotes may be delayed up to 15 minutes, in some cases, depending on your system, or ECN. Therefore, it is important to ask the broker to use ECN to ensure timely information.
