Istanbul, Turkey

Turkey crisis predicted 2+ years ago.

These days, the financial sections of newspapers and online publications are jampacked with articles about Turkey. Everyone wants to sound off like they know what’s going on. But did these pundits predict the current crisis? In the vast majority of cases – no, they didn’t.

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.

10-Year US Treasury future

Is the 35-year long downtrend in interest rates over?

Since July 2016, the US Treasury yields (i.e. interest rates) have been steadily climbing, with the trend gaining considerable short-term strength after the election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th US President.

The latest liqudiation wave started in the evening of November the 8th (US timezones), when it started to become clear that Donald Trump was winning the Electoral Vote.

US Medical system PPACA

Track record: Our comments on Obamacare from 2010.

In the US Presidential Election going on today, the now-apparent-to-all-disaster Obamacare (formally, PPACA), has become a major issue.
