Elliott Wave Financial Price Forecasting

Doomsday Dollar, FT and Peter Goodburn

US Dollar Highlight – This is Peter Goodburn’s response to a Financial Times article published in Monday’s newspaper entitled ‘The Doomsday Dollar Scenario’ by Rana Foroohar

Monday 30th September 2019

Dear Ms. Foroohar,

Just read your article on the US$ Dollar. Your reference Ulf Lindahl at AG Bisset as your source but notice you also build an interesting hypothesis around his idea that the US$ dollar would decline around 50-60% per cent whilst U.S. stock markets begin a generational decline.

WaveTrack is an Independent Research Provider and we specialise in price-forecasting. For price itself, we model the Elliott Wave Principle. And for timing, Cycle Analysis from Edward Dewey’s Foundation for the Study of Cycles model. Above all, both confirm what AG Bisset has hypothesised. The dollar’s decline resumed its 15.6-year cycle in late-2016. Actually, this next decline is its half-cycle interval of 7.8-years – see attached cycle chart (report dt. June 30th 2019, fig #125).

Basis EWP model, downside targets for the benchmark US$ dollar index are towards 49.35+/- during this next 7.8-year cycle downtrend – see attached, $indx190806.

US Dollar, the Elliott Wave Principle and Cycle Analysis

The only aspect that seems unlikely basis EWP and Cycle Analysis is that U.S. stock markets begin to trend lower now. Our ‘Inflation-Pop’ hypothesis which we’ve had in place since late-2010/early-2011 remains on course where U.S. stock markets remain in a secular-bull uptrend until its next cycle peak is due, sometime in year-2023 – see attached cycle chart (report dt. Dec. 27th 2018, fig #12).

US Dollar – Looking Ahead

Looking ahead, beyond year-2023, yes, U.S. stock markets are set to undergo a quantum shift in the way we’ve perceived investing for a generational term. But this seismic shift will most likely, decimate asset values right across the global horizon. Worst affected will be those economies with the largest debt ratios. Governments will most likely be forced to confiscate wealth in order to ensure survival. That means hitting those at the high-end of the wealth-scale first. Subsequently, taxing property ownership to the point which causes a house-price collapse, triggering an uptrend in interest rates too.

Our analysis leans heavily on long-term historical data. We have interest rate data going back to year-1727 (almost 300 years), the US$ dollar index data begins in year-1660 and stock market data beginning in year-1695.

Would be happy to engage if you would like to follow-up on this intriguing subject. In the meantime, please see our annual 2019 currency market report which is attached – very best wishes,

    So you wouldn’t give any concern to the 20 year cycle low due in the US market in Q4 2022 to Q1 2023? It seems that cycle has been very reliable to this point.

    • Hi Jay – the 20yr cycle low you refer to never seems to isolate a major price low…it bottomed at the 1942 low but that was above the Great Depression low of 1932…then its next low was in 1962…that was a correction within the prevailing secular uptrend of cycle wave 3…the 1982 low was another correction low within an established uptrend that began in 1974…the next 20yr low was in 2002…again, important, but not an absolute low as this was simply wave A within an A-B-C expanding flat pattern resulting in a lower-low for wave C in 2009…on this evidence, I agree with you, we shouldn’t ignore the next date in 2022/23, but will it again signal a secondary, higher-low?…what might be more important is that sometimes, in cycle analysis, ‘inversion’ occurs…could it be that the 20yr cycle low will ‘invert’ at the same time as the 94-year cycle forms a peak? – that’s certainly possible – what do you think? – PG.

      • Jay Sanderson

        Its possible but I am preferring to look for a top no later than Q2 of next year which is only 3% early based on your 94 year cycle.
