SPX is approaching the end of its correction which is deemed to be in about two weeks.

[...] on Thursday June 28th, Mars stations close to the degree of the January 31st eclipse as the Sun opposes Saturn. This is not a happy picture. Even if markets do not experience another negative trading day, then world leaders will likely be faced with serious challenges.
I anticipate a bull market in 2018 – at least until Saturn completes its trine to Uranus in September."
Saturn is still in trine aspect to Uranus into September 2018, and Jupiter is still in trine aspect to Neptune into August 2018. Unless the DJIA starts to fall back below 21,600, the 6.5- and 4-year cycles are still pointed up.
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.
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.
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...
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.
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).
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.
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.
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 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.
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:...
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.
