not sure that you need to know a lot about charting. In my opinion if a company is sound then a trend will follow usually up., if a company is under poor management or trading is poor then the trend is down. EBQ is pretty well managed and trade is good and the history of the share price is up. Of course when a share rises from time to time people will take their profts for many reasons causing the price to drop , leading to others buying in and the price rising. no rocket science there. the chartists seem to say that if the price tomorrow falls then the price will fall and if the price tomorrow rises then the price will rise....duh, well of course it will....it has. In my opinion at the moment there are way too many outside factors causing daily rises and falls, of course you can apply your maths calculations to determine how far the next rise will be before the profit takers step in, or can you. chartists say yes , I say not at the moment.

local stores have posters up in the front windows asking customers to reserve their x-box now..I agree there is more upside here but 180 is a little optimistic.

Has the upward corrective 'b' wave ended yet?. I expect tomorrow to show some downward correction. If the correction is large then the upward 'b' wave has ended and we are on the start of a larger downward 'c' wave of wave IV, but if it is small then it is either an extension of the 'b' wave or start of the 'c' wave. If tomorrow's price ended up then the huge correction of the 'c' wave I anticipated becomes less severe because wave IV could become a flat. I am not optimistic and has just sold my last lot at 128p this morning.

doctorbird The way Elliot waves is applied is totally different from other TA indicators in that, IMHO, you have to have the second best interpretation, sometimes called the "alternate count". This I find is the most important thing to have in mind, because it is the way to apply Elliot Waves. The most disasterous way to use Elliot waves is to have just one interpretation and expect the market to follow that interpretation and to still hold on to your position when the market has obviously negated that interpretation. It is because the future is not exactly predictable that is why we need the "alternate count". IMHO to make it up as we go along as to the possible scenarios, but there are only a limited number of scenarios available because of the highly specific Elliot rules. Within those scenarios we can have an idea of the relative probabilities of the future path of the market. Here is a simple example. Suppose in a motive wave we have wave 1 and 2, we then expect 3,4 and 5. Wave 3 and 4 came along. Now Elliot wave says that wave 3 must be longer than wave1. Suppose wave 3 is the same as wave 1, we now abandoned our simple Elliot five-motive wave and re-interprete it as a possible wave 3 extension, because wave3 extensions are more likely than wave 1 extension. Now we expects the 3,4 and 5 followed by IV and V. I do that all the time and don't have a problem with it because as the future unfolds it gives me more information about the possible wave pattern, but, I must interprete it exactly according to Elliot's rule or else it isn't Elliot wave we are doing. Without using Elliot wave theory there is infinite number of possibilities, but by using Elliot wave I can optimistically expect a specific number of waves unfolding, hence anticipate the price moving up. I would be most sceptical of Elliot wave, if it says, that there is one and only one outcome, because there is no way of exactly predicting the future. What Elliot wave says is, these are the possible outcomes and of these, some of these are highly probable. I am very happy with that concept and can use it to my advantage. As to your question whether it is a,b,c or (a),(b),(c), the answer is that as yet there is not enough information to tell the difference. It could be either, but my "preferred count" is a,b,c and as event unfold it may turn out to be (a),(b),(c). Whether it is a,b,c or (a),(b),(c) we know they are corrective waves so we do not want to be long in the short term, both these waves take prices down, that itself is enough useful information for me. I know 'a' has possibly completed because it has traced out 5 waves (there is still a possible extension to this 'a' wave) and I am treating the next upmove as the start of the 'b' wave and I continue to interprete using Elliot's rules as the future unfolds. I also know in advance that there will be a 'c' wave after the 'b'. Hope this helps. :o))

opmoc/Tony, Do I detect that you're one of the Chart unbelievers? Let me guess, you're invested in games/retail stocks and held them all the way up and all the way back down again during the boom and bust? I am getting warm yet? If only you'd used a stoploss and taken a small loss instead of waiting and hoping that things would recover to their previous highs. But no, you couldn't admit you got it wrong and take the loss - the market is irrational you thought, sooner or later it will come back around to my way of thinking. Only it never came back, did it? For your information, this chartist rubbish would have got you out of your beloved SEG at 120p+ in August, how much have you lost since then? Oh I forgot, you probably only think of it as paper losses, they're not real until you sell are they? Don't worry though, you can always blame the shorters, the market makers, the company directors or anyone else apart from yourself. Isn't it about time you became responsible for your own actions? YOU caused YOUR losses, not anyone else. Oh, no offence intended. :o)

Thank you sumukong for the Elliot waves, a lot of work for you to describe it all. My knowledge is limited but I have been able to follow your application of the waves to EBQ. The reason why I have not pursued this approach over other TA methods is that I never really found it helpful. It seems to be yet another way of being wise after the event. So, for example, if we are now in 'a', 'b', 'c',[or is it (a), (b), (c)], how can you tell now that (a) has completed? Suppose we are in for further serious market falls, then (a),(b),(c) could go down to 95p, 110p, 80p, or any other levels according to how pessimistic the outlook. Does the theory have serious predictive aspects to it? Does it follow from previous moves that future moves must be relative in some way? Has this method directly contributed to successful trades or is it just for background support to decisions made on other grounds? Please excuse all the questions. I am always interested in anything that may help me obtain better results.

melfaraj I only obtained estimates from the graph I provided around Jan01 to March 01 there is an A shape as you say so the wave (1) is the up wave and wave (2) is the downwave and wave (3) starts where wave (2) ends. Sorry I should have said they are estimates may be the A shape is from Jan 01 to Feb 01, I don't have the monthly ticks on the graph I provided. Waves A, B and C are waves in their own right and they follow wave V which haven't happen yet. My wave order in deceding order of cycle (size) =============================================== I,II,III,IV,V,A,B,C (1),(2),(3),(4),(5), (a),(b),(c) 1,2,3,4,5,a,b,c i,ii,iii,iv,v, etc.. Sorry the above probably different from what most people use. If wave III has subwaves (1)(2) etc, wave IV will contain (a)(b)(c) I have skipped mentioning subwaves on wave (3) and (5) of extended III wave because I wanted to show just the big picture and too much time to write. Here is my interpretation the months are just estimates. Subwaves on wave (3) and (4) of extended wave III ================================================= Immediately after wave (2) which ended in Feb/March 01, we have a little bump which is wave 1 and 2 (ended about 60p) and then followed by a very long wave 3 which takes the price up to about 92p (ended in April/May) followed by a zigzag on wave 4 which takes the price down to about 85p. We then have an extended fifth wave 5 which takes us up to 118p. This point is also the end of wave (3). Wave (4) downwards to sept 11 2001 contain wave a to 105, b back to 110 and huge wave c down to 70p (contain further subwaves (i),(ii),(iii),(iv),(v)). This is the full Elliot wave cycle. I remember reading somewhre that when there is an extension on the fifth wave there is most likely a huge correction (our sept11 correction). Subwaves on wave (5) of extended wave III and wave IV ===================================================== Wave 1 starts on sept11 at 70p and ended at 115. Wave 2 showed a zigzag and ended at 106p. Wave 3 ended at about 131p and we have an extended fifth subwaves again which ended at 137p. This point is also the end of wave III the start of wave IV. Wave IV will contain the corrective waves of a, b, c of subwaves (1,2,3,4,5,a,b,c). We have seen further subwaves of (i,ii,iii,iv,v) on the downward 'a' waves. I am expecting an upward 'b' wave (which I hoping to liquidate my position) and a huge downward 'c' wave because there is a fifth wave extension again and I expect a big correction. The correction will not be so huge because we already have a zigzag in 'a' so the formation of 'c' will be a complex flat (this is a wild guess from me.) Hope it all makes sense. Let me know any bit doesn't make sense.

Melfaraj and Doctorbird Can I draw your attention to Qxl's thread: "Qxl and MSN pan-european marketing partnership" MrGaribaldi 17 Jan '02 -09:37 press release Qxl and MSN annouce pan-european marketing partership London, 17 january 2002 -Qxl riccardo Plc ('QXL') (LSE:QXL.L; Nasdaq QXLC;) Frankfurt: QXLF) today announces that it has signed a strategic marketing partnership with MSN, Europe's number one web destination.................. Now, so far there has been no RNS regarding this. The share is up only 7.8%. Back in 1998 I saw a very small article in the FT regarding Rage doing a deal with Sony; went to look at the chart and the price had hardly moved (it was around 5.5 or 6). I did put some money and few days later it had double, took my profit and few days later it was at 15-16. Everybody- watch it, this post could be a RAMP disguised as a way of thanking two guys who did something for me. DYOR. Am I going to buy more??? No, as I am already far too exposed with this one, and had to pay a fortune in flowers and boxes of choccolate to make myself forgiven by the wife. DYOR

The charts look good for tomorrow and it is a start. The candlestick pattern looks like a piercing pattern but it is not because the opening did not gap lower yesterday's close. The fact that the high is higher than the highs of 2 and 3 days ago is encouraging but today's up closed does not yet signal a reversal of the down trend. From Elliot's wave point of view IMHO the downtrend 'a' wave has completed and the uptrend 'b' wave has started which means that it will either move up wards or retraced a little bit and then moved upwards. But the bad news is that after the 'b' wave comes the 'c' wave which moves downwards. This 'c' wave is part of the fourth IV wave of a higher(super) cycle of wave. Two reasons to believe that the next down trend is going to be big is that we have a fifth wave extension as I have said in my earlier posting and the second is that since the second II wave of the higher(super) cycle is a simple zigzag this fourth wave IV is going to have possibly combinations of zigzag,flats and triangles which could take it quite far down below 100 but not below 95. I am liquidating my small position when I see the 'b' wave ending. Any views concerning my interpretation of Elliot's wave is welcome.

yes, just wish I had been quicker, could have sold and bought again, but couldn`t believe what I saw, just happened to look at screen at around 2.30pm to see what was going on today...........still seems odd for the middle of the day, can hardly believe there was a shortage of stock.. wide spreads first thing , yes ......but sudden jump and wide spread at 2.30pm anyway, calling the chartists out there, given a 5p rise today ....what of the future ?

pjw956, it is not just today. i had pointed out in a posting above that i have seen 10% spread on this stock. the less liquid a stock is the wider the spreads, particularly at market opening and closing hours. some stock exhit spreads in multiples of the above. trumpet, intraday price movements contain lots of so called 'noise'. these are short term, or very short term, price movement that may not relate to the stocks general price movement. ta can explain the general direction of the price movement in a more calculated way that the short term spikes. the abbility to filter out such noises, or even capitalise on them, is one of the factors that seperates day traders from, swing traders and position traders. the spike that occured today caused the price to rise from 125 to 130 and down to 127, all this within a span of one minute. this phenomena is known as a squeez.

That's SETS for you. What's worse is that if a few tiny trades occur during these spikes it can make mincemeat of any TA you throw at a chart because it doesn't truly reflect the market volume/pricing conditions. Unusual to get this sort of thing during the day though - more often happens at the open before the trades get going.

Each to their their own method of trading. After fundamental analysis tells me what I want to know technical analysis tells me when to get in and when to get out. Sometimes I make trades base just on technical analysis. This old load of twaddle seems to make me money consistently and I am glad a large propotion of traders treat is as twaddle so there are very few competitor for the entry and exits positions I am taking. I am only addressing those few who understand and uses it. mafaraj seems to understand a lot. As no offence is intended non taken. Chartism Rubbish as it happens contain close to over 1000 indicators from simple moving average to more complex stuff. If you have been to a technical analysis course and say it is rubbish I fully respect your opnion. But if you haven't the best tip I can give you this year is to go to one it will save you hell of a lot of money not to mention make you money. Success Events is one such course many ADVFN users have attended. BTW I have no connection with Success Events except to say that I have attended its full course and it opened by eye to this Chartism Rubbish.

sumukong, i am afraid i could not follow your wave pattern above for the following reasons: according to the theory wave, w1, is an up wave, w2 downtrending, w3 up, w4 down and w5 is up. this saw tooth formation is followed by another set of saw tooth formation, namely wa, down, wb up and finally wc down. the order of up and down wave may be reversed, thus w1 may be down and w2 up and so on. following the above i cannot see how w1 could have started on jan01 and ended feb 01, since the shape of the graph during Jan 01 has been more like an A letter, i.e. up and down. i have a similar problem also reconcilling wave 2 and so on. cant also understand what you mean in your last sentence 'the next upward corrective 'b' wave will start very soon followed by a downward 'c' wave of wave cycle IV.' this is because waves a,b and c are waves in their own rights and no subsets of waves 1,2,3,4 and 5. therefore wave c cannot be part of wave iv. my statement above is not strictly correct in that the elliot pattern do form nested patterns whereby one complete wave set would contain within a whole subset of waves, but i doubt if that is what you meant.

Dropped quite a bit today. IMHO in the very short term it depends very crucially on today's close. If there is support today to bring it back to yesterdays close or above then there would be another upsurge. If it closes below yesterday's close then there is no more support for the share and it will go further down followed by a small correction upwards and then further down before there is further institutional support. My interest?. I have held this share for over 3 years when they were 45p adding at 50p and have been top slicing and only holding a smalll amount to dispose off soon. I am waiting for todays close. If it is down at today's close I will sell tomorrow else will still hold for the next upsurge. Good luck to all who hold.

Here is my Elliot Wave count for EBQ for what's it worth. The cycle starts way back in April 2000 and has an extended third wave ,III. We are now in the IV wave of the cycle. There is still a V wave to come. The IV will not, I think go lower than 95p and the V wave not higher than 160p. First wave I, started in April and ended in Oct 2000 Second wave II, started in Oct 2000 and ended in Dec 31 2000 Third wave III, started in 1st Jan 2001 ended in Dec 31 2001 ....Third III extension ........First wave (1), started in Jan 1st 20001 ended in Feb 2001 ........Second wave (2), started in Feb and ended in March 2001 ........Third wave (3), started in March 2001 and ended in June 2001 ........Fourth wave (4), started in June 2001 and ended in Sept 11 2001 ........Fifth wave (5), started in Sept 12 2001 and ended in 31Dec 2001 ... Hence end of III wave extension Fourth IV, started in 1st Jan 2002 and we are now in it. We are about to complete the downward 'a' wave correction and the next upward corrective 'b' wave will start very soon followed by a downward 'c' wave of wave cycle IV. That would then take us to the final upward fifth, V, wave. http://www.advfn.com/cmn/chrt/draw_chart.php?epic=EBQ&type=1&size=2&period=6&scheme=&delay> Anyone have any suggestions as to the wave counts.
