Q&A with Ian Copsey, writer of Harmonic Elliot Wave

Author Ian Copsey

Why have you ever made those alterations to R.N. Elliott's impulsive wave constitution?
It turned very transparent to me numerous years in the past that the impulsive constitution Elliott defined, including the generally quoted ratios for forecasting wave endings simply didn’t paintings. i glance at specialist Elliotticians and amateurs alike and the variety of assorted wave counts for one rate chart is fantastic. although, they're continually retrospective and that i have not rather stumbled on somebody continuously forecasting exact stalling components for every wave.

What are the adjustments you could have made?
Very easily R.N. Elliott thought of that impulsive waves are developed of five waves, and on widespread events “extend” this means that the waves appear to boost within the comparable “size” as others within the related wave measure. additionally, in case you examine Elliott's constitution every one directional wave is made of five waves. The Harmonic constitution additionally screens this similar attribute. despite the fact that, the place Elliott calls those Waves (1), 1 and so forth I label them Wave (a) and Wave (c) that are either 5-wave strikes. although, via watching which waves have been comparable and missed the constitution it used to be transparent that the relationships, are among the 3-wave constructions. when you fairly consider it, the alterations relatively replicate the Dow idea so it isn't an awesome switch. One significant distinction is that during the Harmonic constitution impulsive are consistent. There aren't any things like prolonged waves or failed fifths which, in my view are in basic terms repercussions of the wrong constitution.

How are you able to make sure that the adjustments you've got made are right?
with ease truly! they've got enabled me to extend my accuracy through an important margin, on many events to the very element.

What is it that generates the accuracy?
The requirement that wave ratios are current and ambitions are proven throughout all wave levels. with no using ratios there's essentially no method to forecast wave completions. i feel you have to comprehend right here that Elliott constructed his concept within the Nineteen Twenties. at the moment he evidently needed to calculate all wave relationships lengthy hand. I had the luxurious of a spreadsheet which enormously reduces the time to ascertain relationships and permits a extra thorough research.

What different advantages are there from the Harmonic wave constitution?
except consistency, the requirement for constant wave relationships at every one degree of improvement reduces the subjectivity of Elliott Wave. It additionally places a halt to the typical wave labeling with none actual figuring out of no matter if waves are similar. Analysts and investors easily use key highs and lows to come to a decision the place they position wave labels. It simply doesn’t paintings that manner. In conventional Elliott Wave virtually no awareness is made to how deep a correction will be, or what are the typical projections. The Harmonic constitution has a superb consistency and as a rule can establish alternation among Wave (ii) and Wave (iv).

How do different Elliotticians react?
There are universal reactions. the 1st, and so much ordinary, is severe curiosity as the Elliottician has stumbled on an analogous frustration as I. the opposite response is entire denial.

Do you get every little thing correct then?
No, it isn't the Holy Grail. although, it does provide me a miles greater knowing of whilst i am correct and whilst I’m flawed, usually the perfect aspect at which i am incorrect. whereas subjectivity is lowered through requiring matching ambitions around the wave levels there are regularly ambiguities and problems in picking a few waves in whippy markets.
