Hi BigSlick, First of all, thank you for taking time to write such a detailed review. I am sure people who plan to buy this book would find your comments of great value. Permit me to address some of the important points you have made.
Let me start with the software I used to create the charts. I used Reuters charting tool, which I believe is also available for non-professionals at a subsidized version. However, the use of the software was only to save me the time needed to compute different retracements and projections. It is perfectly possible to arrive at the same levels if you knew what the starting and ending points are for a particular move.
This brings me to another key observation you made, that I often don't show the price level of a particular point. You will agree that putting in too many details on a chart makes it hard for the reader to understand everything - it gets too crowded. Now if the Reuters tool shows the starting and ending points, and then the projections made from the third level, I thought there is no need to show the starting and ending points, especially when I am drawing the readers' attention to the final level.
BigSLick, I appreciate that Elliott Wave Analysis is not easy to understand, especially with so many labels that can be assigned on charts. My approach to labeling was to focus on getting the reader to understand the concepts. If I take you too deep into the subject, you would have probably abandoned the book mid way. The book started off by saying I am not trying to make the reader an expert, but only trying to give him/her sufficient grounding to get started quickly. So I hope you will forgive this shortcoming.
I would like to thank you once again for writing such a detailed review, just as I am grateful to all the others who have taken the trouble to read the book and post their comments here. And BigSlick, if after reading my explanations you are satisfied, do let me know. Please feel free to post on my blog too!
