For many new friends and followers. Long term trades I define as 5, 8 and 1000 pips trades. Long term trades are the easiest trades and targets achieve perfectly as demonstrated a million times.

For 2021, the only trade available among 28 currency pairs was CHF/JPY with a 115 target. So far, 122.00's achieved lows at high 116.00's, lows 117.00's for 500 ish pips. My theory is long term trades become available every 2 years or so and complies to a currency pair goes on the move every 2 weeks. More investigation is required.

Long term trades in past years achieved targets in 3 to 4 weeks and 7 to 8 weeks for currencies such as EUR/AUD. Today's markets are quite different for many reasons as price speeds are under a severe slowdown. CHF/JPY for example took 3 ish mopnths to 116.00's and 117.00's. In past years, a 500 pip CHF/JPY trade took 3 weeks. The central banks by dead interest rates are killing price speeds.

Slow speed explanation is derived as the 12 1/2 year of the 4th quadrant of 50 years. Year 2022 marks 50 years since the 1972 free float and 2024 is derived 50 years since the BOE creation in 1694.

Markets as we know it today are over and done as a new 1st quadrant period will soon emerge. Current 4th quadrant shenanigans such as money supply explosions, negative interrest rates, covid, taper, CPI targets and other experiments is the phenomenon of 4th periods and we've seen this many times before since 1694. Today is no different.
