[...] The MC now suggests a 3/04-05 major swing High, followed by a sharp decline into XXX.
[...] A possibility is that the S&P will reach 2820 by March 6th but then stall or turn downward.
March 5-6 is potentially a huge change in trend window for Grains.
March 5, Mercury will begin its three-week retrograde motion in Pisces, which should be a peculiar period [...] Uranus is also active this week, and with Uranus, prices can change fast and furiously [...]
[...] a potential cycle turn very soon in the Euro.
Note we do not plan to short aggressively before early 2019 (Late January or December 2018 potentially & May definitely)
[...] this Bear Market[...] could end about April of 2020. If it is more drawn out, it could last into April 2021.
[...] generally speaking, the stock market makes longer-term cycle highs with Jupiter in Sagittarius (November 8, 2018-December 2, 2019), and then the air escapes out of the bubble as Jupiter advances into Capricorn-Aquarius (2020-2021).
Though there is understandably much attention due to be given to both Brexit and to the US mid-terms, uneasy investors might give thought to adding gold, silver and other precious metals and jewels to their investment portfolio. The value of these may well rise in the next 18 months.

The major US indices are showing early signs of a cyclical turn already. These appear during a very late stage of the expansionary cycle. All in all, the technical macro picture suggests a cyclical turn for US equities.
Recent Lessons about Cycle Theories
Main Characteristics of Cycles
A cycle is a recognizable price pattern or movement that occurs with some degree of regularity in a specific time period. The analysis of cycles shows us support and resistance that represent smart places to anticipate a reaction in the price of an asset, and therefore represent a basic tool in technical analysis.. Cycle lengths are measured from trough to trough, the most stable portion of a cycle. The information you find on this page is useful to combine with Elliott wave analysis. It's also a valuable tool to understand what is happening in the different asset classes: bonds, equities, commodities and the U.S. dollar.
Amplitude: it's the distance from the horizontal axis to the extreme peak or trough (it's called the “power” of the cycle). Normally the amplitude is a function of its duration- the longer the cycle, the larger the swing. Expressed in dollars, pips, or points, it's related to volatility. Power of amplitude can be influenced greatly by exogenous, unpredictable events some of them anticipated in FXStreet's Sentiment Aggregator. Because amplitude is considered a projection problem, the most reliable projections are made strictly on periodicity and phase.
Period: it's the distance between troughs. While the amplitude appears to change quickly at times, the period appears to change more slowly. The period often remains relatively constant and is an estimate based on immediate past price history.
Phase: its used to identify the last cycle low and determine how far from the y-axis the particular cycles begins, it thus determines the offset between two cycles of different phases. It measures the time location of a wave trough and allows for the study of the relationship between different cycle lengths. Being the relationship of the starting points of different cycles, if for example, one cycle has the same period as another but its peaks and valleys are exactly opposite, it's 180º out of phase). If two cycles are identical in phase, they are coincident.
Seasonalities and Periodicities
It is in general agreed that the time period between 12 pm GMT and 3 pm GMT are the most active times for traders who seek to capitalize from the largest movements in the market. The New York markets open at around 12 GMT, and trading in London closes at 3 pm, so the time period in between sees the largest amount of liquidity reaching the markets.

The research presented here shows that the high for the day occurs in the first hour 30 per cent of the time, and the low of the day 38 per cent of the time.

Ron William was speaker at the International Traders Conference, hosted by FXstreet.com in Barcelona from June 20 to 22, 2012. We share here with you the presentation of his Keynote speech.
Today, let's question conventional wisdom when it comes to price, market timing, volume and time itself.
We want an average that is half the length of the cycle so that it will show our peaks and troughs as movements from and to the average itself.
Martin Armstrong, once a financial strategist and advisor to over one trillion dollars of asset, developed a computer model based on the number Pi and other cyclical theories to predict economic turning points with eerie accuracy.
The exogenous theory of economic crisis (that the Fed kills it) is ahistorical and colored by hubris. It serves policymakers interest, exaggerating their power. It leaves unaddressed the real threat, self-induced financial excesses.
The key is to locate the beginning phases of each cycle, so you can take advantage of the information obtained from the study of the distributions. One of the existing methods to locate those phases would be the study of the price ROC (Rate of Change).
In the first part of the Monthly Webinar (free for all users), Ron William will cover the next topics: * In life and in markets TIMING is everything * The History and Importance of Cycles * Linear vs. Non-Linear cycles * W.D Gann's Law of Vibration...
James Smithson concludes that Gann’s forecasting method can be applied to the currency markets today. However, in order to identify the underlying cycles driving a particular currency it is necessary to analyse the price history of that currency measured in New Zealand dollars.
Gann called the squaring the range with time method his most important discovery, and it is still as valuable today as it was in his era.
There are no coincidences. Gann and several generations of traders have used time and price analysis combined with square roots successfully. Some consider Gann to be the Holy Grail of trading. It’s not.
A Gann angle is a diagonal line that moves at a uniform rate of speed. A trendline is created by connecting bottoms to bottoms in the case of an uptrend and tops to tops in the case of a downtrend.
Gann’s major discovery appears to have been some crucial and practical part of his forecasting method that he called the ‘Law Of Vibration’ and he provided a partial explanation of this Law Of Vibration in his interview.
Gann was fascinated by the relation of time (T) and price (P). Gann drew his angles from all significant price pivot point highs and lows. He used just one pivot point to draw an angle that rose (or fell) at predetermined and fixed rates of speed, as follows:...
The next war is likely to start in Libya and Syria (Note this article as written in 2011). The current depression began in 2007 and will continue to 2020. [...] The United Kingdom and China will be badly affected. [...] The country that will do the best out of this mess will be India.
We can now introduce a tool called the Gann Fan to identify potential support and resistance levels as we move in trend from those areas.
In Gann Theory, there are three trends all working on any time frame at all times.
Gann believed that price moved in certain repeatable patterns, based on price and time; you can use the angles of the fan to see areas where prices are likely to turn due to a combination of the two.
