Please recall with me the prevailing investor sentiment from this time last year …
U.S. stocks had been in strong decline for more than a year. Some of the most celebrated bulls had turned into bears, and the few bears that did exist before the downturn had become even more bearish. The Daily Sentiment Index for the S&P registered an astonishing 3 percent bulls — virtually no one was betting on the upside — and the bleakest of forecasts for 2009 called for nothing short of financial apocalypse.
But well-known contrarian analyst Robert Prechter took the opposite side of the trade. Prechter, a long-time bear, emerged as a solitary bullish voice among overwhelming bearishness. After closing out a record short recommendation that gained 800 downside points in the S&P, he issued the following bullish warning to bears:
“The market is compressed, and when it finds a bottom and rallies, it will be sharp and scary for anyone who is short.”
In the following days, the mainstream media reported that “perma-bear” Robert Prechter had turned bullish — the reports were only half true. Prechter had, in fact, turned intermediate-term bullish. In Prechter’s eyes, the bear market is far from over, and what he expects to happen after the current rally ends is significantly important to how you position your portfolio now.
Prechter’s firm, Elliott Wave International, is now offering for a limited time The Most Important Investment Report You’ll Read in 2010. Inside, Prechter reveals his big-picture outlook for U.S. stocks and the U.S. economy. The eye-opening 13-page report, originally published for paying subscribers to his Elliott Wave Theorist, examines the government’s unprecedented involvement in the financial markets and private enterprise. It reveals what’s already taken place in candid detail then focuses you on what the government’s measures will actually do for the U.S. financial markets and economy.
Be assured, this report delivers analysis you will not find on the front page of The New York Times or Wall Street Journal. It delivers independent insights from the man who saw the bear market — and today’s bear market rally — coming when virtually no one else did.
But hurry! This free 13-page report is available for a limited-time only due to its timely content.

“Successful market timing depends upon learning the patterns of crowd behavior. By anticipating the crowd, you can avoid becoming a part of it.”
I pulled this quote directly from the opening paragraphs of the free Elliott Wave Online Tutorial. It’s critical to your understanding of how markets really work.
Now some might say, “What’s wrong with following the crowd? I’m just following the easy money, right?” The problem with this logic is that most investors follow the crowd (or herd) all the way up the mountain … then right off the cliff.
Look at today’s situation: How many people you know got out of the stock market before the October 2007 top? Heck, how many you know cut losses and cashed out even six months after the top?
If you’re like most people, your answer ranges from “zero” to “very few.”
Being a successful investor over the long-term means you must always strive to be part of that “very few.”
Famed market analyst Robert Prechter, the leading practitioner of the Elliott wave method of market analysis, once said, “Missing a market move may be a shame, but getting caught on the wrong side of one means you lose money. People who have gone through the experience know there’s a big difference.”
To be a successful individual investor, you must understand what it means to take risks when the probabilities are behind you and shun risk when they’re not. Robert Prechter’s method of analysis, the Elliott Wave Principle, is designed to help him and his subscribers do just that.
Buy and hold is dead. Trading isn’t any easier. Having a big-picture outlook doesn’t mean you must “set it and forget it,” as the late-night infomercial guy says. And it certainly doesn’t mean you must be in and out of the markets every day. It simply means you can see the forest for the trees.
You can go long when the markets are behind you, short if you have the guts, and stay out completely when the risk is too high. Simply put, adopting an independent, unbiased method is the very best way to ensure you don’t get caught up in the investment herd.
Elliott wave analysis is not for everyone. It’s highly technical. And it presents probabilities, not certainties (there’s no such thing as a black box trading system). The most successful investors and analysts – the guys who are still around after 30 years like Prechter – are able to assign probabilities and assess risk; and they act only when probabilities are high and risk is not.

It’s broken up into 10 lessons across 50 pages, so it’s easy to read and review at your leisure.

Market Myths Exposed eBook – Now Available
You’ve no doubt heard the old mantras “stocks for the long haul,” “diversify,” “buy and hold.”
Investment gurus worldwide repeat them daily ad naseum. But are they really wise investment strategies for ALL markets as advertised? Can any piece of advice that’s so simple yet so vague be of use to you as an investor?
Anyone who diversified their portfolios across several stocks, bonds and commodities over the past three years knows that diversification is no foolproof way to profit. The same goes for anyone who decided to buy and hold the S&P index 10 years ago — they’re 20% down even after the recent rally. Many individual stocks and commodities have performed much worse.
During the mania, when the trend was almost always up, virtually anything had a good chance to go higher. Investors ignored real safe-investment advice, because there was always someone lucking into a moon shot during the insanity. The S&P index itself – followed by the NASDAQ and other futures markets – sat at the center of the mania, and simply being in an index back then often outperformed other popular strategies. That’s all over with now.
Our friends over at Elliott Wave International have just released a brand-new ebook to help you sell and fold bad investment advice for forever. EWI’s 33-page Market Myths Exposed eBook takes the 10 most dangerous investment myths head on and exposes the truth about each in a way every investor can understand.
You will uncover important myths about the safety of your bank deposits, earnings reports, investing in bubbles, small stocks, inflation and deflation, speculation and more.
