FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions – Elliottwaveindia.com

Q : How will this site help me ?

A : As a trader, you need to know which direction to place your trades.  The underlying trend is important.  This site provides analysis that guides you with the underlying trend of indices.  Even short term traders can benefit by knowing which way the trend is, and which way the wind is blowing.

As an investor, when is the time to buy, and when to sell.  Many investors time their buying not-so-well, often when the market is about to turn lower.  This site provides context with clear analysis about where the index is heading.

As a Fund : Most funds look at fundamentals – Price Earning ratios, Earnings per share, etc.  But fundamentals often cannot explain swings in price because the most important aspect of the market is not considered – the psychology of its participants.  The wave principle can and does.  It also warns of corrections when 5 waves are nearing completion.  It identifies ending diagonal patterns, and triangles which can, with reasonable accuracy, warn of change of trend in index, thereby resulting in higher alpha.
