Time Forecast

Cycles are the only technical tools that allow reasonably accurate forecasting of future tops and bottoms. The cycles used in our analysis are as long as 4 years for the Stock Market, and as short-term as minutes or ticks for intraday trading. Timing Bands are plotted on a chart, but since they do not show beyond the edge of the chart. The dates and times will show on the chart, or may be viewed in the Expert Commentary gives the exact dates/times of the Timing Bands.


Cycle Length Indicator
You cannot trade cycles unless you trust them, and you cannot trust them without some historical study, which might be as simple as reviewing several years of history to see the cycle tops and bottoms; or as in-depth as reviewing the mechanical buy/sell signals and combining them with multiple indicators.

All markets have price cycles in all time frames -- monthly, weekly, daily and intraday. The length of the cycle and amplitude of the cycle moves will differ from market to market, and in different time frames.

Cycle Length is a spectral analysis program that identifies cycles in any data stream; monthly, weekly, daily, hourly, minutes or ticks. The dominant trading cycle in each time frame -- normally within the range of 14 - 25 price bars -- is the cycle used to buy and sell a market, based on the mechanical buy/sell signals.

CycLen automatically selects the dominant trading cycle in red. The blue shows the current cycle length.


Timing Bands
Timing Bands are based on historical cycles and are used to forecast future cycle tops and bottoms. When prices are within, or follow, a Timing Band, and a mechanical B/S signal is generated, the odds of having a true cycle top or bottom are very high. Timing Bands are used to anticipate cycle turning points and changes in momentum, and to increase the accuracy of the mechanical B/S signals.

The green Timing Bands are a forecast of the most probable time for the trading cycle to top; the red and blue bands forecast the most probable time for a trading cycle to bottom. Plot them in either the oscillator panel or the price panel.

The Top & Bottom Forecaster* helps you pinpoint and trade future tops and bottoms by showing the dates and times for these expected cycle highs and lows on your charts in all time frames -- weekly, daily, or intraday.

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.

FibCounts Accurate identification of cycle tops and bottoms keeps dollar losses low and increases the potential for sizable profits. The FibCounts indicator makes time projections that help increase the accuracy of buying cycle bottoms and selling cycle tops.

The FibCount indicators forecast the standard Fibonacci points (13, 21, 34, 55, 89,144) into the future from any 3 cycle tops or bottoms identified by letters that match the letters in the indicators.
