An ability to recognize where any market is in a cycle at a given point in time can help to pinpoint high probability trade entries and exits, thus reducing the frequency of any losing trades and allowing the trader to run positions for longer so as to maximize profits from every trade.

Brought into the mainstream in the 1970s by Frost and Robert Prechter through the publication of their best seller, Elliott Wave Principle and successful application of the Wave theory can substantially improve a traders profitability. The beauty of it is that it can be used to help forecast future prices when trading in any market whether your interest is in trading Forex, Stocks, Commodities such as Gold and Crude, Indexes or Bonds.
