Wyckoff Logic

Recommended Posts

That all looks eminently sensible @Caseynotes and roughly confirms to EWT and other similar cycle theories.  I do use the concept of an "Ice Line" when identifying a breakout from a consolidation such as the Accumulation of Distribution phase when I can't find another charting method (e.g. H&S neckline).  I particularly use an ice line off a double top/bottom, which fits the theory above well.  It would be interesting to see this on some actual markets in long term time-frames to see how well it tracks.  I suspect that the theory diagram is idealised so recognising the pattern on real market data would be open to interpretation, as everything is of course.  I would expect such real markets examples to map onto a classic EWT analysis and Charting analysis such that the the Accumulation and Distribution zones represent end of Bulls & Bears phases, which will conform to either a 1-5 motive or A-B-C retrace  (as trend channels) and depending on the time-frame each consolation phase (H&S, Triangle etc) will either be preparatory to a new major trend or a continuation of the existing overall trend.   So net, no surprise to me, this theory fits well with EWT and Trend Following rather than as an alternative.  Just a different way of saying the same thing and seeking to do the same thing, which is profit from a trend and/or trend change.

The only problem (if problem it is, maybe just health warning...) is the notion of the "logic".  While it makes sense I have often observed that the markets can at time exhibit illogical behaviour, the over-exuberance of bubbles for example, which may still conform to the pattern but in a hard to fathom and observe way.  What would this pattern look like on Bitcoin for example?  The Accumulation phase is clearly there (I called it incubation phase on my recent post) but the Distribution phase would be far from classic I imagine, hence the need for interpretation.

Oh completely agree @Caseynotes, that is what makes it all so interesting to me.  If several people (or the market players in general) come up with different models using different logic but all conforming to the same market movements over the long term then, to me, it means there is validity to analysing these markets using said models.  Really matters little which ones (or combinations in my case) one uses so long as one understands how they can be used in context to support a trading idea.  But of course one must back test and practice using the models/theories within a methodology for both recognising and executing a trading idea.

Some stocks will make new highs, and some won’t, but they will still have the same wave count and I will explain this in today’s video. That said there are stocks like Tesla that are different, however they will move the same on an intraday basis, just with different Elliott wave counts.

    • Thanks. A really interesting video and some interesting statistics and analysis. I haven't the time to go back and analyse whether a strong November increases the chance of there not being a Santa rally, although one of the slides highlights that the negative Santa Rally years were tied with poor November returns for the market such as 2000, 2008 etc which seems a contradiction.  Would I short and back against it happening? When it occurs in over 80% of years... absolutely not.  The Santa Rally – Christmas Growth in the Stock Market. (moneysandi.com)
