Watch this quick educational video from an Elliott wave forex expert, Jim Martens
Last fall, the editor of Elliott Wave International's Currency Pro Service, Jim Martens, observed a beautiful pattern in the chart of the Japanese yen. This pattern, called a triangle in Elliott wave terms, offers a very clear outlook for the market.
What is a triangle? It's a corrective pattern, meaning that it moves in the direction opposite the primary trend. And, it's very easy to spot on a chart. Here's an idealized diagram of a triangle.
When a triangle ends, the old trend should resume. This allowed Jim to make a very clear forecast for the dollar/yen. Watch this 7-minute video to see the triangle he observed, and the outcome.
