    welcome to this forum and hope that you would have more information for your trade. I think you have an incredible effort in the trade when you start to do
  3. Instead of 3 and 4, it could be a 1 and 2.

    Name of Index, please?

  4. Aziz


    thanks xtrader0 :)

    thanks deadbroke , you have a valid point here. we can put it as A (1&2) but if we know the history for this Index through the last 25 years were it did an incredible 80% correction ended only on 2009 (at 4000 points). Please view attache weekly chart since 1985.

    it's TASI, Tadawul All Share Index (Saudi Arabia; stock exhange index).. Tadawul means trading in arabic.

  5. Your left to right uptrendline on the extreme right should help you a great deal in case the count really is a 1, 2. The last thing you need is to be expecting a rally when in fact wave 3 down gets underway. The trendline is therefore your guide.

    Can you send me the raw end of day historical data from 1985 to current in a csv or excel or preferably Metastock file? I think I can at least give you a valid opinion on the condition of the index.

    I tried Yahoo Finance, no Saudi Index available, only that of Israel and Egypt.

    Thanks for the data file. Much obliged. :)
  10. pre-analysis past action observation ....

    Saudi market a stunning example of how quickly hope changes to fear when a market tops out = 5 waves are over = get the hell out

    Investors who hoped for a second chance to get out after the top, never got it as the rallies were weak.

    Otherwise intelligent people held all the way down.

    The Boston Globe: (excerpt from the crash of the saudi market)

    "'The downturn has been disastrous for many Saudis. People collapsed in trading halls while witnessing their money evaporate. . . . Until February, the market was growing by almost 100 percent annually, leading many Saudis to predict a new boom.'"


    what a perfect example of HERD SENTIMENT in a bubble!!!!!!

    Even without any esoteric TA like elliottwave, cycles, Gann et., etc., the free-as-air TRENDLINE got you with money safe. THE MAN keeps sending us messages that the simplest tools are always the best, but no, we've got to complicate things. :) :D
