In Harmonic Elliott Wave he reveals the methodology, the common ratios that link different parts of the wave structure and provides a wealth of practical examples to explain his findings. Through this methodology he shows how waves develop and dispels the misconceptions that have been common practice by Elliotticians over the years. He supports his methods by consistently ensuring that waves are related by common ratios to help the reader apply the techniques with greater understanding and accuracy.


Utilizing R. N. Elliott’s wave structure, I became aware that things were not quite right. The same anomalies in the wave structure repeated themselves over and over again. The normal Fibonacci projections that are widely quoted didn't work all that often. Impulsive waves all too often stalled early and missed out a wave. So I began to adapt the way in which impulsive wave structures develop and to research the common ratios in projections. After a few months, it was clear that my adaptations produced far more accurate results in both the projection ratios and the manner in which impulsive wave structures develop.

In writing this book to describe my findings I do not wish to imply that R. N. Elliott failed. In my opinion he was brilliant to make such observations in the first place. I do not for one moment believe I could have identified and quantified the Wave Principle if I had no prior foundation on which to work. The ability for me to identify this different structure of impulsive waves could really only have been managed with the benefit of modern calculators and charting software. With a few touches of the keyboard I am able to generate a full range of retracement levels and projections in my spreadsheet.

While Elliott did have access to hourly charts, his ability to scrutinize wave relationships was limited due to the fact that he would have had to calculate a range of ratios long hand. Spreadsheets allow these to be available almost instantaneously. All that is needed is to tap in a few highs and lows. Therefore I prefer to label my findings as a modification only. R. N. Elliott’s work still remains a remarkable feat of observation and diligence.
