As part of your Elliott Wave education, WaveTimes brings you the analysis of the AEX Index, which is a free-floated adjusted market capitalization weighted index of the leading Dutch (Netherland) stocks on the Amsterdam Exchange.
As always, there are notes directly on the chart itself. Elliott Wave analysis is always a work in progress. You should not ever think that once you do your wave counts, you can forget about it and the markets have to obey your diktat! Quite the opposite, really! The market is the master, and we make adjustments along the way. However, the real value of Elliott Waves come into play when you know before hand that there is a chance to reach 356, and that if the index starts coming off from there, we should be watchful near the top of wave (a) because a move below that top will violate one of the rules of Elliott Wave Principle. If that happens, we will cease to buy dips because we will then be back in a bear mode…and so on and so forth.
Of course, Elliott Waves will appear daunting to the uninitiated, but I hope the book “Five Waves to Financial Freedom” has helped make it easy for you to learn enough of Elliott Waves so that you can start applying what you have learned quite quickly. Good luck, ye punters.
Thanks for posting your views . So, overall 360 means a strong resistance level…
With a current market scenario , do you have any fresh views on AEX Index Pattern ? Would appreciate if you can post your current views on AEX . Thanks in advance for your opinion and views.
Hi Mark, As we clearly have an overlap of wave A at 318, the markets have turned bearish. However, the first leg down from the top at 337 (it never made it to 356) is unfolding in 5 tiny waves, and we seem to be in wave 5. So don’t get overly bearish near supports between 280 and 288 as we need to correct that first 5wave move down.If that correction is slow, then we should sell aggressively as it turns down again
Hope you had a nice vacation . Was wondering what is your new view on AEX index in a current market situation . Request you to post your comments.
Mark, re the AEX, while we stay below 308, we stay bearish
Hi Ramki, welcome back, I hope you have spent beautiful days in the mediterranean!
I think after the A-B-C correction in this chart to around 252, I´d have labeled 1, 2 instead (a), (b), and surely make a mistake. Why did you do it like that, and why to 356
Thank you very much for your time and help!
Antonio, If you go back and read my book, you can figure it out yourself! Good luck
Hi Ramki ,
Sine AEX is now above 308 , so I guess now the index seems to be bullish and targeting 330 -340. Do you think the same ? Awaiting your latest views on AEX . Thanks in advance.
Mark, Although it is not moving down quickly just yet, in the bigger picture I am bearish for the AEX. The main reason is (as explained in my book) the movement from the Sep 25, 2011 low of 256 looks to be a 3-wave recovery. We then had an overlap. The best you could hope for is another recovery as a second zigzag. But if it trades below 304 now that will be yet another overlap…on balance, stay away from this market until a clear Elliott Wave pattern is established. It is so easy to lose money during a complex correction
Thanks Ramki for your views and guidance. I would try to resist myself from the market -trading….:)
Hello Ramki ,
Do you have any new formed opinion on AEX given the fact that most of the world stock indices are bullish inspite of negative news around the world ?
Thanks in advance
Hi Mark, the dip from 337 to 281 in the AEX overlapped the top of wave A confirming that the whole move is a corrective pattern (i.e. this is not an impulse wave setting off a new uptrend). The subsequent recovery should also be viewed as such, ie part of a complex correction. It is true that this index, along with several others in teh world, is going up, and whether we call it correction or impulse it doesn’t matter much unless we have a proper trade recommendation. As you know, I am not in favor of arm chaor analysis, ie analysis for the sake of showing off that we can count waves. We need to be able to translate our analysis into solid views for a trade. When that is possible, I try to make a bold recommendation. When that is not possible, I usually stay away. In any case, for the AEX, we should forget the bigger picture for now. Let us start counting from the recent low of 281 seen on 1st June, and see if we can figure out a 5 wave pattern. I think a 3rd wave (being 200% of 1st wave) finished at 323. BUt the ensuing recovery is also strong. SO maybe we are still in an extended 3rd wave.I wouldnt want to be prematurely short of this index. Allow the index to run its course; it will signal us that the move is over at a future date, and if you have read FWTFF, you too can spot teh signals quite easily. Good luck
