The Elliott Wave Principle recognizes 13 known wave patterns on the price charts of financial markets. Some of these fall into the category I like to call "Casserole" patterns; meaning they develop at an easy rate that affords enough time for the analyst to walk away from his/her desk and dawdle with other things, like preparing an elaborate casserole. The other category is the "Canned Soup" patterns.

As the harvest season of Indian corn husk-centerpieces draws near, it's the perfect time to look back at a time when corn prices were the centerpiece of the commodity table.

And according to the mainstream experts, alls well that ends.. "yellow."

You know the expression, "You never see the bullet that kills you"? Well, in late August, this saying aptly applied to the mainstream financial analysis surrounding soybeans, when it was "taken out" by a sharp and sudden downturn. Here's a brief recap..

September was a cold, cruel month for those looking up to hard assets for safe-haven rewards.

"When stocks are falling, commodities come calling." So goes the mainstream mantra that hails hard assets as safe havens during equity declines. But, for anyone who followed this strategy in September 2011, the outcome was far from fruitful.

To a first-time observer, watching a technical analyst spot a major trend change in a financial market before it occurs can seem as mystical as pulling a rabbit out of hat. But once you learn the tools of the trade, you know there are no tricks up the technical analyst's sleeve. What you see, is exactly what you get. On this, EWI's Senior Commodities Analyst Jeffrey Kennedy speaks to one technical indicator in particular: moving averages.

One of the biggest glitches in fundamental market analysis is that it pins future price action on a series of unknown variables. Such as, commodity market "X" moves higher on the "anticipation of" damaging thunderstorms; and, market "Y" falls on "expectations" that Chinese demand will fall. Take the recent history in cocoa.

In 2008, the mainstream experts were dead set on the idea that commodities would provide shelter from the maelstrom raging within stocks and bonds. Their outlook was based on expectations for a repeat of the 1970's inflation and the theory that stocks and commodities always move in opposite directions. YET -- from its July 2008 peak, the Reuters/Jefferies CRB Index of commodities plummeted 58% in its biggest decline in 28 years -- right alongside plunging stock markets.

Since rallying to a near 4-month peak on September 1, coffee prices have endured a powerful selloff to an 8-month low. Seeing coffee's reversal before the market went from "high octane" to "weak blend" was NOT a benefit of fundamental analysis. EWI's Commodity Specialty Service on the other hand, was well ahead of the turn.
