LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
This month, we are highlighting several examples of work that may be at the leading edge of technical analysis research. Robert Prechter, Jr., CMT, popularized Elliott Wave and is probably the individual most responsible for its worldwide popularity. He has continued studying wave patterns and extended that study to socionomics, a field he developed and discusses in this issue.
In addition to demonstrating his personal brilliance, socionomics demonstrates how the knowledge gained in the study of technical analysis can be applied to other fields. A detailed example of socionomics, demonstrating the link between the public mood, stocks prices and Presidential elections, is also included and readers should consider downloading the full paper. Manuel Amunategui then offers an intriguing idea that addresses some of the problems created by 24-hour trading. In some markets, the open and close have become less significant but the technique Manuel presents could help redefine price charts in these markets.
December marks the end of the year and an end to a special discount price available for the Annual Symposium. The speakers, including Robert Prechter who will be sharing his latest work, promise to deliver value to any trader and analyst. Please tell us what you think about the newsletter with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
