His goal, through his original 60-page course on the action-reaction method, of which the pitchfork charting technique is part, was to teach how to make money by forecasting markets. His course was a summ...

• ### Combining Andrews With Elliott Wave High by Ron Jaenisch

ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Combining Andrews With Elliott Wave High by Ron Jaenisch The first concept that a student of the Elliott wave theory learns is about the five-wave structure of a move. The first concept that a student of the Andrews method learns is that prices make the median line about 80% of the time. The two concepts are compatible and they are also complementary. To draw an Andrews median line, do the following: 1. Find three consecutive pivots, sometimes referred to as turns or ends of Elliott waves. 2. Label the pivots A, B and C. 3. Draw a line between point B and C and label the midpoint of that ...

• ### Fears of the trader by Ron Jaenisch

ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Fears of the trader by Ron Jaenisch In order to eliminate fear from trading it may be useful to have an understanding of what it is and how we generate it. Fear is actually a form of excitement and the only physiological difference between fear and excitement is an individual's breathing pattern. Next time you feel fear notice 1) your shallow breathing, 2) the things you are saying to yourself, and 3) the pictures in your mind. It has already been proven that what people feel has everything to do with what they imagine and nothing to do with reality. Reality is nothing more than a stimulus s...
