Elliott Wave Principle: Key to Market Behavior: Robert R Prechter: : Books

Prechter is known for developing a theory of social causality called socionomics, for developing a new theory of finance and for his long career applying and enhancing R. Elliott’s model of financial pricing called the Wave Principle. Prechter has developed a theory of the causality of social action—called socionomics —which leliott for the character of trends and events in finance, macroeconomics, politics, fashion, entertainment, demographics and other aspects of human social history.

His “socionomic hypothesis” is that social mood, which is endogenously regulated, is the primary driver of social action. Under development since the s, this idea first reached a national audience in a cover article in Barron’s.

Elliott Wave Principle – Key to Market Behavior

Prechter has developed a new theory of financial causality that proposes a fundamental separation between the principld of finance and economics. In brief, Prechter accepts that in the economic realm, because producers and consumers are knowledgeable of their own needs and desires, the pricing princciple utilitarian goods and services is mostly objective and motivated by conscious utility roberh in this context the balance of desires supply and demand between heterogeneous groups of producers and consumers leads to equilibrium-seeking in prices.

But his STF proposes that in the financial realm, because investors are ignorant of what other investors will do, the pricing of investments is mostly subjective and motivated by unconscious herding; in this context, unfettered changes in desire demand within a homogeneous group of investors produce unceasing dynamism in prices at all degrees of activity.

In economics, substantial certainty about one’s own values induces mostly rational thought; in finance, substantial uncertainty about others’ values induces mostly non-rational herding. Prechter’s proposed Law of Patterned Herding LPH is that investors’ moods and their resulting decisions to buy and sell are regulated by waves of optimism and pessimism that fluctuate according pdinciple a fractal model called the Wave Principle, or the Elliott Wave Model.

Prices of goods and services are important because they regulate supply and demand. But prices of investments are irrelevant because they are merely a transient byproduct of mood-induced impulses to buy and sell.

Precther to this model, financial market prices—especially aggregate stock market prices, which princlple particularly sensitive to changes in social mood—develop in a series of five “waves” in the direction of the immediately larger trend and in a series of three waves or combination thereof when moving contrary to the immediately larger trend, thereby producing a patterned, hierarchical fractal. These waves take certain described forms called Elliott waves. This model is compatible with socionomics and Prechter’s theory of finance.

In andthe Georgia legislature invited Prechterr to testify before its Joint Economic Committee regarding the state’s developing real estate and economic crises. Prechter’s articles and speeches on the Shakespeare authorship question have been published in four journals and newsletters. The essence of Prechter’s socionomic hypothesis is that fluctuations in social mood–producing waves of optimism and pessimism–are a natural result of human association and have consequences in social action.

Social mood is not conscious, rational and objectively prexhter but unconscious, non-rational and subjectively active. While people almost universally believe that the character of social events determines social mood, socionomics recognizes that the causality is the reverse: Social mood determines the character of social actions. The causality of social mood is unidirectional; there is no feedback loop of events back to social mood. Events do stimulate brief emotional reactions, but they are transient and do not affect social mood.


Some forums of activity are ideal for the immediate expression of social mood. The one in which the most detailed and pristine data exist is the stock market, where investors in the aggregate buy and sell stocks almost immediately to express changes in their mood.

Elliott Wave Principle : Robert R. Prechter :

Other qualities and activities, such as facial expressions, voice timbre, the music people choose to hear and the clothes they choose to weard, might serve as equally good “sociometers” if accurate data were available.

Many actions taken in response to trends in social mood take time to manifest. For example, business people might decide, in expressing the social mood, to expand ;rinciple contract operations. But it takes time to implement such plans, so changes in macroeconomic activity lag changes in the stock market.

The same is true of political actions, which generally require a large consensus and thereby substantially lag social mood trends. This is why sociometers such as the stock market averages are leading indicators of macroeconomic trends and political actions.

Socionomics postulates that waves of social mood are endogenously regulated, fluctuating toward the “positive” optimistic and then the “negative” pessimistic direction according to a patterned, hierarchical fractal called the Wave Principle, identified as a stock market model by Ralph Nelson Elliott in the s.

Waves have substantial quantitative leeway but adhere to one overall form, under which there are five specific forms and a limited number of variations thereof, as described in the literature. Because Elliott waves are patterned, they are probabilistically predictable, thereby making the character of social trends probabilistically predictable as well.
