Criticism of Prechter and Hochberg

When the Elliott Wave Theorist (subscription service, pay to get your advice) issues a market opinion, I imagine Jimmy Cagney holding a machine gun at your head saying "you dirty rat".  Then firing dozens of bullets. 

Why this imagery and comparison?  Imagine you want to kill someone financially (and demoralize them too!).  How would you do it? Well,, the way they do it is a pretty good model.  Make very strong impassioned arguments against the large trend in force so that people bet…

get every single market’s major trend wrong consistently

Robert Prechter and EWI are in the business of providing market forecasts in exchange for subscription fees.  The main markets they seem to cover are the stock markets, interest rates, precious metals, and the US Dollar.

Amazingly, they manage to get every single market’s major trend wrong consistently.

Wrong on the stock markets, bonds, gold, silver, the US…

EWI and Steven Hochberg and market history

He has been harping on sentiment indicators for months (almost from the lows in late March 2020 too,…

It is remarkable the disrespect the Elliott Wave Theorist’s Steven Hochberg shows to the markets (and by extension his clients).  

Gold has been in bull markets for many months (4 + years) and they (EWT and Hochberg) have been bearish for a good % of gold’s price advance. Accompanied by a high degree of confidence.  

Sometimes after gold rises above Hochber’s previously identified ‘The High’ or (the 5th of the 5th (etc), destroying his analysis, he will then say ‘we wait…
