But I did predict the current crisis instead of just talking about it now that it is front-and-center, and in this article, we’ll go through my July 2016 analyses and predictions for Turkey and the Turkish economy.

Carl Malmberg's YoY trading results - EWT Investing

Summary of our Elliott Wave analyses on the S&P 500 during January 2018 - EWT Investing

My profits from the recent crash

Most analysts like to talk a big game, but they aren’t actually profitable traders themselves – but rather marketers of things such as analyses, expensive trading programs, expensive online courses, and similar.

In this article, I take a look at my recent analysis performance and trading results, including the recent-most mini-crash. Most other analysts like to tell you about things after they happened, but our analysis service attempts to tell you beforehand what is most likely to occur in the financial markets – and while we’re not perfect, we’re very good and hard-working.
