Walter
Bressert's ProfitTrader 7.0™: FibPods  1
FibPods
forecast future cycle turning points in all markets, and all time frames.
When an overbought or oversold oscillator turns within a FibPod, it increases
the odds of that time period being a cycle top or bottom, and a Mechanical
Buy/Sell Signal confirming a cycle top or bottom of being followed by
a sizeable price move in the direction of the trade. 





ProfitTrader
6.0 and 7.0™ use Fibonacci Price Retracements to buy bottoms and sell tops,
and also to forecast and anticipate future price moves. However, Fibonacci
ratios can also be used to forecast Fibonacci time periods, or FibPods,
into the future. These are high probability periods in which a cycle top
or bottom is likely to occur. All markets and all time frames move in waves,
or cycles. By using two cycle turning points  toptotop, bottomtobottom,
toptobottom or bottomtotop  we can apply Fibonacci ratios to help anticipate
future cycle turning points, and Buy/Sell Signals, that coincide with oscillator
highs and lows. In ProfitTrader, we use the 10DoubleStoc and BLine oscillators
to identify cycle tops and bottoms, and to generate Mechanical Buy and Sell
Signals. 


What
exactly is a FibPod?
A FibPod is a time period in which a cycle top, or a cycle bottom has
a high probability of occurring based on Fibonacci ratios. A FibPod is
generated by taking any two cycle turning points and calculating the distance
from one cycle turning point to the next, then forecasting three Fibonacci
ratios into the future. A powerful advantage of FibPods is that in intraday
trading we need little price history. We can use cycle tops and bottoms
in Days 1 and 2 to forecast FibPods for potential cycle tops and bottoms
into Days 3 and 4, that we trade. FibPods also work well in daily charts
but require more price history. 

Chart
1  Cycle Points E and F in Days 1 and 2 make FibPod projections for Days
3 and 4. 
The
oscillator at the bottom of Chart #1 is the 10DoubleStoc; the cycle
highs and lows are identified on the price bars  blue dots for cycle
highs; red dots for cycle lows. Smaller dots of the same colors are
plotted on the oscillators to show where the cycles turned. Comparing
the cycle dots on the price bars to the cycle dots on the oscillators
you can see that the DoubleStoc Oscillator is quite accurate in identifying
cycle tops and bottoms. By forecasting FibPods into the future, we can
increase our odds of accurately forecasting and identifying high probability
cycle turning points as they occur.



In
Chart 1, two points are identified; Cycle Bottom E on 10/5 and Cycle Top
F on 10/8. By calculating the number of price bars from E to F and multipying
that by three different Fibonacci relationships  .618, 1.000 and 1.618,
the colored FibPods are generated. A FibPod is an exact forecast of each
ratio plus/minus one price bar. The program will allow you to make the
FibPod (X) bars wider for different time frames. 
 The cyan
FibPod shows the .618 forecast of the EF distance +/ one price bar.
 The magenta
FibPod is a doubling of the distance from E to F, +/ one price bar.
 The green
FibPod shows the 1.618 forecast of the EF distance +/ one price bar.
 The EF
FibPods were forecast based on Cycle Bottom E and the Cycle Top F. In
addition to being a cycle bottom, E is also the low of the day; and
the Cycle top at F is also the high of the day.

Time
periods using the high and the low of the day often have more "energy" than
cycle tops or bottom in between the high and the low of the day or days. 
FibPods
show in historical charts, and also forecast into the future when printed
in the Expert Commentary. 
As
you view these time periods you will see that projected FibPods can be considered
as potential cycle turning points. Also, we look for FibPods that stack
one on top of the other may show a higher probability for the formation
of cycle tops and bottoms.
