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.
