Manuel Aparicio Theory. Natural Analysis: A natural way of looking at the markets.
After studying the two main market analysis theories (developed by Charles Dow and Ralph N. Elliott) which led to technical analysis and the various tools and indicators created over the years, we are left wondering about the validity of Dow's theory regarding the nature of price movement in that "all is discounted in the price" (that is, the news, earnings, fears and ambitions) and secondly, we also have doubts about the truthfulness of the premise that there is "smart money and dumb money" leading to the four stages of price movement (accumulation, big move up, distribution, big movement down). Both assertions, we believe, are in contradiction with the fractal quality of price movement. In contradistinction we agree with the basic tenets of Ralph N. Elliot's waves theory. He was the first to note that price moves in waves and that these waves are governed by man's social nature.
Our theory, to analyze price movements in the markets, goes farther and considers that although it is human nature what governs price movement, it is nature itself, nature regulated by its own laws, what ultimately controls everything and therefore price movement. In other words, price is ultimately governed by the laws of nature.
When postulating our theory we have considered that nature respects its laws with accuracy and that fractal theory inherently has to comply with these laws.
We have tested our hypothesis by using all the tools based on the Fibonacci sequence, countless hours of trial and error as well as we have counted waves. From here we have developed our new rules which we believe improve the accuracy and speed of predictions based on wave counting.
Elliott determined the existence of 3 rules:
1) Wave 2 always retraces less than 100% of wave 1.
2) Wave 3 cannot be the shortest of the three impulse waves, namely, waves 1, 3 and 5.
3) Wave 4 does not overlap with the price territory of wave 1, except in the rare case of a diagonal triangle.
I have determined the existence of 3 new rules
New Rule 1: We have repeatedly observed and proves that Elliot's 3 rules and our 3 "New Rules" for use with the count of waves respect accuracy to the smallest fraction.
New Rule 2: We have repeatedly observed and proved that retraces called: waves 2 and 4 (both measured from the start of the impulsive wave until it ends) will be determined by whether this retrace is less than or greater than 50%. If the retrace is less than 50% this will be a wave 4 and the impulsive wave will be a wave 3. If the retrace is greater than 50% this will be a wave 2 and the impulsive wave will be a wave 1.
Rule 3: Waves 3,4 and 5 must be contained within a fan line that begins with wave 1 except for wave 2 that may be out of this fan line.
"Because accuracy, any failure, by less than this is, breaks the 3 rules of Elliott and our 3 new rules".
All rules must respect fractal theory.
Simplicity on waves count:
With our 3 new rules, wave counting is simple because, we only have to determine waves 2 or 4 by using 50% retracement, been careful with accuracy.
Quickness on waves counting:
Our 3 New Rules allow us to make decisions quickly and on real time.
SPX: 1928 to date. Daily log chart.
You can watch how primary wave 2 (62.28) retraces more than 50% (63.95) and cycle wave 4 (768.63) retraces less than 50% (767.29). We can also observe how cycle waves 3,4 and 5 are contained within a fan line that started with wave 1 on 07.08.1932. This 85 years chart shows how accuracy works on waves counting.
AAPL: 1.5 years, daily chart.
On december 29,2012, we called a truncated minute wave 5 (after we relabeled as a minor wave 5) so, an intermediate wave 3 (after we relabel as primary wave 3) was in place and we forecasted a downfall to 336.17 (subsequently we have predicted AAPL will fall to 300). This was because we weren't using our 3 new rules as we have presented it to the community this day
Why we call for a truncated minute (minor) wave 5?. Because the 50% retracement was 501.89 and the minor wave 4 retraced down to 502.82 (less than 50%), fulfilling our new rule 2. After, went up to 600 (+/-) as a truncated minor wave 5, retracing again down to 498.33 (greater than 50% or 501.89) going up again then retracing a third time to 501.74 ( greater than 50% or 501.89). Accuracy is the hardest rule.
Also, minor waves 3, 4and 5 were contained within a fan line that begins with the wave 1. Fulfilling our new rule 3.
