The setups I include on this blog are used in conjunction with the 3/10macd and the criteria I ascribe to it as a way to alert me to an existing condition of price. The key concept to take away from this blog is that I try to anticipate what will happen on the higher time frame by using a faster time frame to trigger the trade setup. I do not trade a "system" I use two indicators to clue me in to price conditions. Please read the Disclaimer located in the sidebar of this site. I can be contacted via email at
I am always open to questions, comments, or suggestions on how to improve this blog.

Dow Symmetry

Interesting symmetry on the Dow monthly chart.
The 1994-2002 'Regular Cycle' of 96-bars was only 2-bars (months) shy of perfect symmentry when compared to the 2000-2007 'Inverted Cycle'.  The current (2007 to now) Inverted Cycle is 74-months and counting, in comparison to the 2002-2009 Regular Cycle of 78 bars we're getting pretty close to a symmetrical comparison.
As an aside, the fuchsia parallel in the chart above is the 'Cyclic Trend Line' (CTL), a designation which, when crossed, is supposed to mark the end of one cycle and the beginning of the next.  Here (bleow) is where previous CTL's would have been placed.  The breakouts from a down trend happening much cleaner and faster than the choppy breaks occuring in a down trend (replete with throwbacks).
