My Bias: Long towards 20,500
Wave Structure: Impulsive 5 wave structure, possibly topping in an all time high.
Short term wave count: Upside from 17,066 wave 4 blue
Long term wave count: Topping in wave (5)
Important risk events: USD: Unemployment Claims, New Home Sales.

On Monday I published this bullish chart:

This chart indicated the DOW price structure had traced out an impulsive rally and an Elliott wave bullish signal with five waves in the direction of the trend, and a three wave corrective decline, waves 'i' and 'ii' were complete at 19730 and I expected wave 'iii' to rally strongly for the rest of the week.

I wrote "Wave ii seems to be complete at todays low ,and wave 'iii' should begin from here. so the wave structure is setup for a rally this week."

Since that analysis was published on Monday the market has rallied 300 points to a new all time high and broken the illusive 20,000 level.

The larger wave count is suggesting a continued rally for the coming months in a structure called an ending diagonal. The market may be bullish right now, but the current Elliott wave count is calling this rally the end of a very large bull market run which began in march 2009.

The coming top will be one to remember for generations to come, but for now I will be tracking the rally every day as it continues in wave (5) to its inevitable end.

I class myself as an Elliott wave trader now, but that's not how I started out though! It took me a long time and a whole lot of pain, to finally understand what drives the price and how to use Elliott Wave correctly!

I have been trading for years and I have tested every trading system and strategy under the sun! I used to pick entry points at random based on emotion or news events or something I heard on TV! It did not take long to destroy my capital! I have blown out my account balance before, and I had to start again,

from scratch!

Believe me, I am well acquainted with failure in trading! Im sure that the above scenario is pretty familiar to you too. We have all been there. About 10 years ago I discovered The Elliott wave Principle and its method of market analysis. Since then, I have spent years learning, testing and trading, using the wave principle as the backbone of my analysis. I even went to college to study macroeconomics and econometrics. I graduated with honours degree back in 2012. The financial market knowledge and statistical edge I gained after my degree added another level to my trading. The difference in my trading approach using the wave principle, compared to before, is like night and day.

The price started to move "my way" more and more often. The wave model, offers me a lens to view market action through, which no other form of analysis can do. Elliott wave analysis, helps me answer four key questions when I am contemplating a trade:

• What direction the price is trending.
• How far is this trend likely to go.
• Where can I enter a trade with the best risk reward ratio.
• And most importantly, at what point am I definitely wrong?!

The wave principle helps me improve my trade entry, tighten up my money management and in turn increase profitability. Seeing the waves unfold before your eyes is a very rewarding experience, It is almost like peering into the future! That is how the wave principle helps my trading, and that is why the wave principle will improve your trading. It took a long time to finally master Elliott Wave Principle. After over a decade of hard work, research and learning I can call myself an expert in the field. I regularly contribute to major trading communities at FXStreet, Forex Factory, Traders Planet. I am a chief Elliott Wave analyst at HumbleTraders.
