Elliott Wave and my Questions

After ten years of researching how financial markets operate, I have come to you with the proper knowledge and experience to create a finance website for all over the world to view. My goal with this site is to empower new traders and seasoned retail traders. It is all about having the necessary information in anything to do well, so why not have the best financial outlook possible? I can do this because there are millions of people with billions of Dollars buying and selling the markets everyday with their own paradigm and thought processes competing and melding with the rest of the masses. Most people coming into the market don't realize how technical it really is. All of this buying and selling in the world markets, whether it be "Big Money" money managers or the average "Joe Trader," all creates patterns. These patterns are one of the basis points for the Elliott Wave Principle. I will post links to elliottwave.com because they are the expert forecasters, and I believe I have an edge as well. However, I do give it up to elliottwave.com because they are master wave counters. I am going to spread the message to the world of how amazing the Elliott Wave Principle is. The Elliott Wave Principle even goes beyond the financial markets. It is also a great tool for studying the social mood of any one entity. We will talk about this as the posts go on.

With the Elliott Wave Principle, people can begin to take control of their finances. This is an extremely important fact to me. The reason I even began starting to study financial markets, besides the fact of love for numbers, is that I did not like the idea of my parents being the "sheep in the herd" when it came to their IRA's and 401k's. Henceforth, I knew I was certainly not going to be a sheep and let a money manager controlling billions of Dollars handle mine as well. My first thought, being an analytical man was, "How am I going to make more money than my neighbors if the same guy is handling all of our money?" Then I took that question a degree deeper and said, "How can one totally outperform the market if my money is only apart of a much, much larger pie?"

This is where my research really began to run deep. I studied many books (beyond college) on fundamental analysis that money managers use, but I really found objectivity when I began to study technical analysis. This kind of trading and research gives one the ability to see where a trade should begin and when it should end. This objectivity gives one the opportunity to minimize losses and maximizing gains. I know for a fact that this is what people search for, alpha, more money made relative to the other guy.

I have come to a point where I know what technical indicators to use in order to analyze a stock, commodity or market rationally, logically, and objectively. As the posts continue, I will divulge the different combinations of indicators one can use to become above and beyond more profitable than prior. This site will answer questions that only paid for sites would let you in on.

I am going to leave with another chart of the recent triangle break, and I will post some analysis about it before the market opens Monday. Please follow my blog!

Thank you,

The Logical Man's Perspective

As I have said in my first post, this blog is going to be primarily stock & commodity market oriented. There will also be the occasional great buy or other recommendation that I see worthy of sharing. With that being said, anything one does in the world of finance must be done logically. This is the premise behind my whole thought process while analyzing data from the markets.

I have been studying the markets rigorously for 10 years now, and I know it's because of my love for numbers and their correlation with us as people. I knew that the stock market was somehow correlated with other things besides just the PE ratio, the PEG ratio, and all the other forward-looking lagging indicators. What really struck me though is when I started to study the Elliot Wave Theory just a year ago. This analysis and what it is based on really gives one the ability to make logical trades and project what direction the entity will go.

This may sound too good to be true and most things are. The Elliott Wave Theory, though, is a tool that analyzes all the information that is current which is reflected in a stock or commodities current price. With all of the different information flying about from the media, it is very difficult to gauge which is good news and which is bad news. The Elliott Wave analysis gives one the ability to objectively look at the market and determine where it is in a wave count and then where it will most likely go. I will be posting many links to the wonderful group of people I follow as well, ElliottWaveInternational.com. This website has opened my eyes to what the world markets really are. As time goes on, so does the analysis which I will be posting my own of. I do abide by the Elliott Wave Principle, but I do add in what I believe to be an "extension of trend lines" theory. I will certainly elaborate on this more and how it has greatly affected the outcome of analysis.

I encourage readers to ask questions because life is all about understanding, then being understood. We are all here to learn, help, and prosper from one another. I know this blog is new, and I am new to website publishing but here is another one of my sites pertaining to the same Elliott Wave Principle topic as well as other important relevant financial information.

I will leave this post with a picture of what the past year has looked like for 2011. Let's see if you can guess where the market may be heading...??

Why Another Market Blog?

My name is Brandon, and I have created Another Market Blog to help educate and continue popularizing a certain niche topic within the financial markets. In particular, I am referring to the market's psychology and its effect on all parties' trades/investment/retirement. I have been studying the financial equity markets for over 10 years now and now feel it is time to create a source to help others open their eyes to different ideas. These different ideas are paradigm shifts in the way the public perceives the open stock markets to operate.

I know from the past 10 years of market research that a non-finance savvy person does not thoroughly understand truly how the stock market conducts it's business. I know this to be true because 90% of retail traders lose money when trading, and they are supposed to be part of the savvy group.

 This is just the first post of many, but I wanted to make an introduction by saying that YOU can make money in the short and long term as long as one steps back to analyze the proper steps that need to be taken. Of course everyone wants the "Holy Grail" or "End All Analysis" that can "predict" the market's movements, but that's just not reasonable. However, I can personally attest that technical analysis is the for sure way to analyze any type of financial security. 

I will go into much greater detail about technical analysis and... the Elliott Wave Principle!! The Elliot Wave Principle is the mode of analysis which has totally altered my perception about how the stock market operated, above and beyond what the study of technical analysis did for me many years ago. Again, I will go into detail about the Elliott Wave Principle, the wave counts, the psychology(human emotion effect) behind markets, and many traditional technical indicators that add up for a serious Investor/Trader edge for the short term and the long term! 

This is not just another stock market blog(ironic name because it kind of is)... blah blah blah. This is real-deal analysis helping real people. The time of the buy and hold strategy is OVER, and all need to dig deep for the best cash preservation and growth strategies possible. I know one cannot find this ideal by following a massive crowd in the same direction. Like I said, think for yourself and do the research that can all be found here!
