STA Monthly Meeting April 2008
The Elliott Wave theory can be described as an empirically derived, entirely technical, list of rules and guidelines, to interpret, qualify, and project activity in financial markets. The theory, defining a complete bull and bear cycle as five waves up and three waves down, is highly indicative of mass psychology and human progression, and allows therefore exciting insights of what the market might do next. But as the theory can be quite complex and confusing, it requires the engagement of Fibonacci applications and what Thomas calls “plausibility analysis” to make it a powerful and highly effective analysis tool. The insights that Thomas will give will hopefully dissolve most difficulties that people encounter using this technique and will unveil the logical clarity behind it.
Thomas joined JPMorgan in September 2009, taking over the role of FX Technical Strategist. His main focus is on G10 and European currencies where he develops trading and investment strategies, mainly on the basis of Elliott and Fibonacci-applications.

The main reason for ineffective strategy construction which leads to non-reproducible results in real time and hence inconsistent performance is due to not knowing the 3 critical strategy stats. To overcome this challenge and construct sustainable, scalable and reproducible strategies in a quantitative manner, the Smart Money Framework was developed by the quants in the 1960s. With this framework we will have the 3 critical stats to help us construct optimal entries, stop loss and exits. When this is further combined with volume, our probability of capturing the bigger runners increases. All of the above will be explained further in detail by the presenter.
