Fibonacci, Elliott And Volatility by Paul G. Williams
Suppose we could chart volatility just as we chart conventional prices. Then we could use Elliott wave analysis, Fibonacci characteristics and cycle techniques to forecast greater or lesser volatility. And very high volatility—perhaps resulting in a market crash—should be preceded by a bullish pattern in the volatility chart.
Now suppose we could calculate and plot market volatility with a unique method that no one else was using. The volatility patterns would display the same type of structures as conventional price charts—which everyone looks at—but the clarity of the wave structure and precision of the Fibonacci timing patterns might be on a much higher level because no one else was able to see and act on them. The market would be free to create well-formed and highly predictable patterns.
In autumn 1987 I discovered a simple method of plotting market volatility, which, from my viewpoint, achieves all these desirable features. See if you agree.
