To the right and above my photo is a new insignia, The Foundation for the Study of Cycles. Anyone interested in furthering their study in this fascinating area is encouraged to click on the insignia whereby you will be linked to a special section of the Foundation where you can access free membership and significant discounts on Foundation materials. By way of introduction to their work, I will be writing a series of articles, starting with the one below.
The Foundation for The Study of Cycles
This foundation has been around since the early 1940’s and has measured the cyclic components, with a high degree of accuracy, across such a broad spectrum of data inputs they are too numerous to mention here. But they include sunspot activity, crop growth rates, even predictions of the number of US Soldiers that would perish in any given month in the present wars in the Middle East.
Of course, they also predict more pragmatic things such as securities price movements which is highly relevant to this audience.
On the recommendation of my long time trading partner, Professor John Kercheval, the two of us are presently evaluating their systems with regard to securities trading.
His preliminary testing indicates that there may be a variety of productive ways to incorporate these programs into one’s trading regimen and that that may differ from trader to trader.
In any event, I just got my copy last night and John and I will spend the next month or so testing the systems, independently, then comparing notes and, post a follow-on post as to how we are using them and how we think they can be used by others.
My first foray into the cycle program produced the following chart:
Note how well the market has been tracking the dominate cycles detected by the analytic cycle software (available at the Foundation by clicking the insignia). As you can see, the projected plot for the next two weeks is in concert with my EW analysis for a Wave 5 decline.
