During our August 25, 2019 Weekly “Counts” Webinar, I showed that Hurst cycle analysis was suggesting that a rally was imminent in XLE, the large-cap Oil stock ETF, and the rally was expected to continue through mid-September 2019. XLE bottomed on August 27 and rallied over 14% through September 16.
That rally was well underway when the two Saudi Oil installations were bombed by drones on Saturday, September 14. So which method of predicting trend changes was more effective? Technical analysis, or trading the news? The answer is obvious.

During the June 2 weekly webinar, Sid expected an important bottom was imminent for AAPL. That bottom came in the very next day. From there, Sid predicted a push to the upside for the rest of the month. He stated in the weekly webinar that AAPL would reach a top near the end of July. The stock peaked on July 31 and continued to meticulously follow Sid’s Elliott Wave count.
In late May, Sid projected a road map for the DOW, calling for an early June bottom and a late July top. Check out this video including excerpts from Sid’s June 2 and June 9, 2019 webinars, which included amazingly accurate calls for the recent multi-week swing low and swing high in the DJIA (Dow Jones Industrial Average):
In late May of 2019, while other market forecasting services were suggesting that gold would continue further to the downside, Sid was bullish. Those other forecasters remained bearish until gold broke out above the 2016 high. What good did that do anyone? Now, with gold only about 5% percent above that 2016 high, those other guys are very bearish on gold once again. Why? Because Elliott Wave theory, when used alone, is dangerously subjective. However, when Elliott Wave is combined with a dissimilar but equally robust methodology (like Hurst Cycle Analysis), a different forward roadmap often emerges.
In late 2017, the relentless parabolic move to upside in Bitcoin had caught the attention of the entire trading world. Since that time though, market participants have made OR lost a fortune during the one-year-long 84% crash of Bitcoin, depending on whether they were on the right side of the trade or not. The video below shows my analysis and projections for price movement in Bitcoin since late 2017.
