Guest Lecture by Market Timing Guru Robert Prechter, Jr., Nov. 3
PLATTSBURGH, NY __ Is the stock market heading toward a crash even bigger than the
one in 1929? Robert Prechter, Jr., thinks so, and he'll discuss why at the State University
of New York College at Plattsburgh on Thursday, Nov. 3, at 7 p.m. in Yokum Hall, Room
In his presentation, "The Socionomic Model of Financial and Social Causality," Prechter will discuss how and why the psychological dynamics behind social mood trends shape the financial, economic, political and sociological events that make history. His lecture is free and open to the public.
Prechter, president of Elliott Wave International, which publishes analysis of global stock, bond, currency, metals and energy markets, first achieved fame by accurately predicting the start of the great bull market. He has won numerous awards for market timing, including the United States Trading Championship. In 1989, he was awarded the "Guru of the Decade'' title by Financial News Network (now CNBC). He has been named "one of the premier timers in stock market history'' by Timer Digest , and "the champion market forecaster'' by Fortune magazine.
Prechter is author, co-author and/or editor of 13 books, including The Wave Principle of Human Social Behavior and the New Science of Socionomics (1999), Conquer the Crash (2002) and Pioneering Studies in Socionomics (2003).
Since 1979, Prechter has been exploring socionomics, the study and prediction of social trends in light of the Wave Principle and its implications for the social sciences. In 1999, he created the Socionomics Institute, of which he is executive director. The institute is an independent think-tank whose mission is to develop socionomics as an academic discipline and to promote its commercial application.
Members of the Socionomics Institute will be at the College on Friday, Nov. 4 from
10 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Cardinal Lounge, Angell College Center, to answer questions
about personal and institutional investments and socionomics. All are invited to attend.
