Numerous books have tried to capture the essence of Elliott Wave theory, but they either made Elliott more complicated than it needed to be, or, in an effort to overcome the perceived complexity of analysis using Elliott, oversimplified the process.

In Applying Elliott Wave Theory Profitably, author and Elliott Wave expert Steven Poser takes a fresh approach to this proven trading strategy, giving you the most well-rounded and straightforward lesson on how to make money using Elliott Wave theory. Drawing from his many years of Elliott Wave experience, Poser:

  • Explores how and why technical analysis works, and shows you where Elliott Wave theory fits into that picture
  • Reveals each of the basic and advanced patterns that the market might trace out and discusses the market conditions that typically produce these patterns
  • Outlines how to build an efficient trading plan
  • Illustrates how to continuously update your plan in real time as the market provides you with further information by way of a constant stream of prices, volume, and news
  • Examines how to review the market from multiple time frames, so you know what degree of price retracements to expect, as well as what your risks and rewards may be

Written in a clear, easy-to-understand manner, Applying Elliott Wave Theory Profitably is a thorough and essential resource for any trader looking to better understand a proven trading strategy and boost their bottom line.

    By far, the best Elliott Wave book available

    I have long wondered how anybody could possibly figure out a way of using Elliott Wave Theory to help them make money. After reading Mr. Poser's book, it all became much clearer. My trading profits are way up as I finally understand how to read what is happening in the markets. Poser shows you how to use Elliott. He explains what the characteristics of each wave are and then leads you into how to count the waves and what strategies you should use to make money. The book offers many bits of information, including how to build a trading plan that will nearly automate your decisions. He also shows you how to look at non-Elliott indications from indicators to classic technical chart patterns, and even reactions to fundamental data items, to help you to improve your trading and investing accuracy.

    Don't feel frustrated by Elliott Wave ever again

    Steve Poser has written a very useable book about the Elliott Wave Principle that doesn't confuse you and doesnt' claim to have application to everything under the sun. Steve brings real market experience to the book instead of theories. It is refreshing to know about all the drawbacks in using the approach from someone who has paid his dues. Hats off to Steve Poser! Five Stars!
