In The Elliott Wave Principle — A Critical Appraisal, Hamilton Bolton made this opening statement:
As we have advanced through some of the most unpredictable economic climate imaginable, covering
depression, major war, and postwar reconstruction and boom, I have noted how well Elliott's Wave
Principle has fitted into the facts of life as they have developed, and have accordingly gained more
confidence that this Principle has a good quotient of basic value.
"The Wave Principle" is Ralph Nelson Elliott's discovery that social, or crowd, behavior trends and
reverses in recognizable patterns. Using stock market data as his main research tool, Elliott
discovered that the ever-changing path of stock market prices reveals a structural design that in turn
reflects a basic harmony found in nature. From this discovery, he developed a rational system of
market analysis. Elliott isolated thirteen patterns of movement, or "waves," that recur in market price
data and are repetitive in form, but are not necessarily repetitive in time or amplitude. He named,
defined and illustrated the patterns. He then described how these structures link together to form
larger versions of those same patterns, how they in turn link to form identical patterns of the next
larger size, and so on. In a nutshell, then, the Wave Principle is a catalog of price patterns and an
explanation of where these forms are likely to occur in the overall path of market development. Elliott's
descriptions constitute a set of empirically derived rules and guidelines for interpreting market action.
Elliott claimed predictive value for The Wave Principle, which now bears the name, "The Elliott Wave
Principle."
Although it is the best forecasting tool in existence, the Wave Principle is not primarily a forecasting
tool; it is a detailed description of how markets behave. Nevertheless, that description…...

Frequency, Wave Lenght and Wave Velocity

...Abstract: The purpose of this experiment was to verify the relationship between frequencies, wave length and wave velocity of a transverse wave on a string, as well as the relationship between the spring tension and the number of standing waves formed. Two different strings used in this experiment are white and black in colour; the µ1 value calculated for the white string is 2.73 x 10-3 ±0.00055kg/m with an uncertainty of ±8.2932 x 10-5 kg/m while the µ2 value calculated for the black string is 1.38 x 10-3 kg/m with an uncertainty of ±8.6492 x 10-5 kg/m. However, the actual linear mass density µ0 of the white spring calculated is 2.87x10-3kg/m; compared to the experimental linear mass density µ1, the difference in error was 4.88%, however, the mass of the black spring was too small to be weighted therefore the actual linear mass density µ0 was unable to be calculated, so cannot be compared to the experimental linear mass density µ2. Introduction: A wave can be described as a disturbance that carries energy and travels through a medium form one location to another. Waves can be classified into two types, transverse waves and longitudinal waves. This experiment was based on transverse wave and can be described by the position of the particles at a particular time as well as how the position changes with time. Transverse wave can also be considered as a wave that remains at constant position. Wave produced by a vibrator travels down a string and...

First Wave of Feminism

...The first-wave of feminism, which is also known as “The Suffragettes”, began in the United Kingdom and the United States around the nineteenth century and lasted until the early twentieth century (Writer, M. 2007). This wave was centered around women wanting to denounce gender inequalities and demand the right to vote, therefore making them official citizens. However it is important to recognise that in Australia aboriginal women were not among those who were granted the right to vote and become involved in political activity (Seibert, A & Roslaniec, D. 1998). The wave formally began at the Secna Falls Convention in 1848, which is where the first women’s rights convention in history was held (Lewis, J. 2001). In 1840, two women; Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stranton were attending a convention in London as delegates with their husbands. It was here that the credentials committee ruled that women were “constitutionally unfit for public business meetings.” (Lewis, J. 2001). The men were permitted to speak, the women were not and there was a curtain that separated the women from the men in the building (Lewis, J. 2001). These two women decided to hold a mass meeting to address the rights of women, which over 300 women and men attended on the first day to rally to the cause of equality for women. Elizabeth Cady Stanton drafted the Seneca Falls Declaration outlining the new movement's ideology and political strategies (Rampton, Martha. 2008). This was only the...

Wave Interference

...Ashley McConkey PHET 3 Wave Interference Objective: To examine reflection, interference, and diffraction in two dimensions and relate to the waves on a spring demo. Everybody has at some time thrown a pebble into a puddle and observed the ripples spreading across the surface. Some of us don’t stop until the puddle has been completely filled with every loose piece of debris in the vicinity. Now let’s dive in a bit deeper into the physics. Open the Wave Interference simulation. 1) Before you change any settings a. What is the shape of the pulse? The pulse before any settings are changed is circular (ring-like) and very constant. b. How can you explain this? Consider the wave velocity. Due to the fact that there is no disruptions in the medium of this pulse there is nothing to cause a change in shape (constant pulse wave velocity). Reflection: 2) Increase the amplitude to maximum. 3) Turn off the water and add a vertical wall (bottom right button) across the entire width of the tank. 4) Turn on the water for just a couple of drips. 5) Observe the wave reflection from the barrier c. What is the shape of the reflection? The result of this reflection is two traveling waves of equal amplitude, frequency and speed moving opposite directions of the wall. d. In what ways does it differ from the incident (incoming) wave? The incoming wave is one whole or larger park whereas the...

French New Wave

...The term French New Wave is also known as La Nouvelle Vague. It refers to the work of a group of French film-makers between the years 1958 to 1964. The film directors who formed the core of this group are François Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard, Claude Chabrol, Jacques Rivette and Eric Rohmer. They all where once film critics for the magazine Cahiers du Cinéma. Other French directors, including Agnés Varda and Louis Malle, soon became associated with the French New Wave movement. They momentarily transformed French cinema and had a great impact on filmmakers throughout the world. During the late 1950s and early 1960s young film-makers in many countries were creating their own "new waves", but the new wave movement in France turned out to be the most influential. The French New Wave directors' background in film theory and criticism was a major factor in this. They changed notions of how a film could be made and were driven by a desire to forge a new cinema.The term ‘New Wave’ was coined by a journalist named Françoise Giroud who, in late 1957, wrote a series of articles on French youth for the weekly news magazine L’Express. The Cahiers du Cinéma critics were highly critical of the glossy, formulaic and studio-bound French cinema of the 1940s and 1950s, but praised the work of 1930s French film-makers Jean Renoir and Jean Vigo and the work of the Italian neo-realists, including Roberto Rossellini and Vittorio De Sica. They also championed certain Hollywood directors, for...

Wave Novel Study

...Independent Novel Study: Wave Part A: Plot 1. The point of view in which the story is written is of Sam and Beth Brooks, two siblings who have been separated at Christmas in 2004, with Sam on vacation away from home and Beth forcibly staying at university for a swim meet that she must attend. I believe that the author chose to write from these perspectives because both characters are greatly affected greatly by the main plot, though dealing with it in two different situations. Sam is experiencing the entire story from Phuket, Thailand, where they are hit with a tsunami. Beth was in New York at her dorm, first learning about the tsunami from her boyfriend, Tad. Both characters have different feelings about what has happened, and we, as the readers, get to hear both perspectives. 2. The story takes place on the one hand in Phuket, Thailand during Christmas break of 2004, and on the other side of the world in New York, where Beth's dorm and university are located. The difference that the setting makes is that if most of the characters were not located in Thailand where the tsunami happened, and majority of the story did not take place there, we would only be privy to secondary information of what was happening. Beth was only able to watch the huge tsunami unfold on television, being an unbelievable 27-hour flight away from the wave. Sam having been in Phuket even before the tidal wave hit was a primary...

Waves travel and transfer energy from one point to another, often with little or no permanent displacement of the particles of the medium (that is, with little or no associated mass transport); instead there are oscillations around almost fixed locations. Wave power refers to the energy of ocean surface waves and the capture of that energy to do useful work — including electricity generation, desalination, and the pumping of water (into reservoirs). Wave power is a form of renewable energy. Though often co-mingled, wave power is distinct from...

The Wave

...Catching the wave I groaned slowly, lifting my head from the pillow and smiled slightly at the sound of my alarm clock, David's gorgeus voice soothing me and putting me in a good mood which would, most likely, last all day. I rolled onto my front, turning my left at glancing at my alarm clock which read 4:30 am, I then looked past it and through the window. I never closed the curtains, and frowned, it was still dark out but it was getting lighter. I put on a pair of white shorts, a tank top, and a white bandeau before I left the bedroom. I jogged downstairs, through the kitchen and out the backdoor into the back garden. I walked down the path and opened the shed door, smiling happily as I entered, seeing my favorite surfboard. “Mike? Is that you?” I heard my mother's voice as she made her way down the garden path. “Obviously,” I replied, rolling my eyes playfully as she entered the shed. “Alright, lose the tone,” She warned with a playful grin, leaning against the doorframe. “You're just like your father,” She said with a soft sigh. “You're getting up ungodly hours of the morning just to go surfing, how passionate you're about it..you're so alike,” She finished as I continued to wax my board. I just looked and smiled at her as I tucked my board under my shoulder. “I love you mom but it's getting lighter and I really don't wanna miss it,” I told her rushing out and up the garden. “Miss what?!” She asked calling after I left. “The sunrise,” I called back in reply. I then made...

Wave Equation

...Logarithms and Levels Logarithms are used to compare two quantities to one another quickly with an easy frame of reference. It is particularly useful if there is a large difference in orders of magnitude between quantities as in acoustic pressure or acoustic energy calculations. We will see how useful logarithms can be in our next lesson. For now, let's concentrate on review of some of the basic principles leading up to our use of logarithms. Unless otherwise stated, we will be working solely with logarithms that are in base 10 (Briggsian) . Some useful relationships to remember when working with logarithms are: 1. y = 10x then log10 ( y ) = x 2. log ( xy ) = log ( x ) + log ( y ) ⎛x⎞ 3. log ⎜ ⎟ = log ( x ) − log ( y ) ⎝ y⎠ ( ) 4. 10 log x n = n10 log( x ) Intensity Level In the last lesson, we defined the time average intensity in relation to the time average or rms pressure as well as the maximum acoustic pressure. p2 p2 I = = max 2ρc ρc The intensity is a useful quantity because it quantifies the power in an acoustic wave, but because of the large variation in magnitudes of Intensity, it is more useful to use logarithms to compare intensities. The below table demonstrates the wide variation in Intensity for typical sounds in air. We will start by defining a new quantity, L, the intensity level, which has units of dB. I L ≡ 10 log I0 where: is the time average intensity of the sound wave. I0 is the reference level used for...

Jane Elliott - Class Divided

...Jane Elliott - A Class Divided C. Love University of Life Research Techniques for Educators October 13, 2015 Jane Elliott - A Class Divided (You Tube Video) The Jane Elliott Video was very insightful to how racism is taught through generations of people. I believe the experiment has helped many people including those who want to learn to be fair and just human beings. The children were used as research participants involuntarily, they were at school that day because they were sent by their parents, and they did not go agreeing to be involved in a research project. The children could not get up and freely leave so yes the research was involuntary. The children were not old enough to understand fully the objectives of research however they were smart enough to voice what they had heard and was taught. The results of the documentary featuring Mrs. Elliott and the students did provide valuable information that has helped society and probably will continue to do so for years to come. Today if that was done Mrs. Elliott would probably be fired and lawsuits filed against her and the school in which she taught. I believe the method she used was brilliant, the collars and differentiating between blue and brown eyes, it should be done again in this period and time in a controlled setting. Most of the children did not suffer any harm except the one little guy that suffered from the physical fight. A number of children were hurt inside from not getting extra food or time on......

Slim Wave in Singapore

...Slim Wave in Singapore Motivation occurs when a need is aroused that the consumer wishes to satisfy. In this case, the motivation is to be skinny based on the need of social acceptance. Once that need has been activated, a state of tension exists that drives the consumer to attempt to eliminate or reduce the need. Diet pills are an easy way to satisfy the need of acceptance by helping make someone skinny. This reduces the tension without much effort. Needs may be Utilitarian or Hedonic. The need here is to fit in (social acceptance) and to feel good about oneself, which are sort of a blend of utilitarian and hedonic needs, but in the case of Singapore lean more towards hedonic, because it involves the emotions more than practicality. However, it could be utilitarian if someone were overweight but considering that Singapore has an obesity rate of only 4.2%, it is clear that there is no real need to lose weight artificially. The desired end state is the consumer's goal. The goal is to be thin like the models in the glossy magazines. Magnitude of tension a need creates (or degree of arousal) is called a drive. The tension is the feeling that one is not already skinny enough, so to resolve this tension, one is driven to find a solution (such as diet pills). Personal and cultural factors combine to create a want which is a manifestation of a need. Diet pills satisfy the want to be skinny without having to put in the hard effort such as eating healthy and...

The Wave

...Who are, and what are your impressions of the following characters after those three chapters? The main characters are a couple of students and a teacher named Ben Ross. The students you get to know are, Laurie Saunders, Amy Smith, David Collins, Robert Billings, Brian Ammon, Carl Block and Alex Cooper I would say that Laurie Saunders is the main character, because it’s often in her perspective you see things. She’s also the one who doesn’t really believe that the wave is a good thing and that makes her different from the others. Amy Smith is Laurie's’ friend who is a little bit shy and kind of lives in Laurie’s shadow. She’s like the third wheel to Laurie and her boyfriend David, she seems to be interested in David’s friend but is to shy to do anything. Ben Ross is the teacher who introduced the Wave to the students. He seems to be a really good teacher that everyone likes and has a wife that loves him. When he wants to do something he dedicates his life to it. David Collins is a guy who plays football and is Laurie’s boyfriend. He seems to be a funny guy who wants to help his football team that sucks. So he introduces the Wave to the team and it seems to work pretty good. Robert Billings is a bullied guy that nobody likes. He is the one who gets most dedicated to the Wave because it makes him one of the gang because everyone is equal in the Wave. You haven’t heard so much about Brian Ammon, but he is David’s friend and plays in the football team...

Ocean Wave Technology

...Application of Ocean Wave Generator Equipment K’Adesh A.D. Hepburn University of Arkansas Department of Electrical Engineering, Energy Systems Fayetteville, Arkansas 72701 Abstract- This paper purposes the techniques and optimization of Ocean Wave Generation equipment. This paper analysis the characteristics and operational reformation of Power generation through Ocean wave technology, with special background in Oceanology. “Ocean energy has the potential of providing a substantial amount of new renewable energy around the world.(Carbon Trust 2006)” [3]. Ocean Wave generator equipment should be primarily use for power generation. Ocean wave can be advantageous due to nonexistence fossil fuel coal emission and nuclear radiation. The most basic functionality requirement of a generator in a wave energy converter (WEC) is that of mechanical to electrical power conversion – in similar manner to the functionality of a generator in a fossil fuel power plant. [2]. Oppose to on water oil rigs, whose residue still resides in the gulf coast. Ocean Wave generator can be the future of renewable energy. The gist of Ocean Wave generation relies mostly on kinetic energy of the tidal wave develop by the wind. Power generation can be control with an Ocean Wave generator. Research is also being conduct on Ocean wave harvesting allowing us to harness this energy. However, there is the question about Marine life, if there are any harmful toxins that can jeopardize the marine life in a...
