Economic Cycles

Cycles are long term fluctuating activities with 4 distinct periods: improvement, prosperity, recession, and depression. These periods may assume different names, but the basic concepts remains the same. In the improvement phase we turn from depression to prosperity. We typically see rising economic activities, increased production and investment and a rise in income and employment. In the prosperity phase we typically see rising interest rates, inflation, overall economic optimism, economic activity and high income.

In the recession phase we turn from prosperity to depression. We typically see falling demands, decline in income, low economic confidence and falling stock markets. In the depression phase we typically see a decline in consumption and demand, falling interest rates, deflation, economic pessimism and low income. Cycles can be used to find the best stocks to invest in, based on what kind of sectors and companies perform better in which period, e.g. cyclical stocks in the improvement phase and defensive stocks during the recession phase.

Autistic Pattern Recognition

Do you remember when this exact same thing happened before? Bar pattern is LTCBTC weekly from BTC-e in 2013, chart is recent Bittrex price action. Immediately after this happened the first time, the new money-doublers (who make sure to tell all their friends about litecoin gainz) went to barely functioning Cryptsy and lost everything to Wolong trading a picture of ...

BTCUSD: Cursed chart (BTCUSD)

Cursed chart (BTCUSD)

I don't think it makes sense to use normal TA on Bitcoin because it cannot be compared to any asset... except itself, so I've overlayed the early 2013 bubble (daily candles) on the current run (weekly). We'll peak on CME futures and then an exchange CEO will get kidnapped or something. I don't know. Nobody does. Good luck. Still long as of my last linked trade:

Longterm BTC next big wave up 2020

If everything worked perfectly in cycles, it could be slow on BTC until 2020 with only small spikes in between now and then. This is just a cycle copy from what happened in 2013. But it's also likely that this cycle will be shorter in time as cryptos have picked up the pace in recent years.

GBPUSD Three reasons to sell or short

a. 1.3850 to 1.40 marks a zone that was the floor for prices in 2016. b. Cycles of 60 Days has been a consistent predictor the past year, we are in the cycle peak zone. c. The RSI is at extremes and previously at this level (see Oct-16) GBPUSD pulled back 3%.

Extremely Long Term EURGBP Chart!

Today i'm visiting my favorite Forex pair to look at and discuss a very long term Elliott Wave count that it appears to have formed. It appears as if in early 2008, a 5th wave completed as a high. From there the market has been clearly corrective, ultimately going sideways. A Zig-zag completed into mid 2015 and from there we have seen a sharp move to the upside. ...

Filling the gap

I already forgot this gap down since the last British referendum. Succeeding gap due to flash crash was filled immediately. However, this June 2016 gap was the longest gap I've seen (to my recollection) in FX market before it was filled.

BTCEUR: 19 Degrees Continuum

19 Degrees Continuum

Purely coincidental trajectory line of 19 degree peaks, based on previous sharp rises of 77 degrees and dips of 19 degrees. Only based on two distinct S curves, if these S curves were to continue at the same rate and magnitude, you end up with a steady 19 degree increase into 2018 and beyond. It means the latest sharp rise may not have bucked this 19 degree trend, ...

ETHUSD possibly in a cycle

I once saw a cycle chart by @lowstrife (twitter) on BTC that seems to still be for the most part valid today even. I decided to play around with ETHUSD chart and found that ETH has rallied twice around 27 December. I made mine on the 3D chart. Each cycle is around 122 bars. If this is true it may be possible for ETH to dip one more time despite the bull flag at ...

Feels like the bulls might be back in town...

Obviously very early days but RSI on the 1m and 5m are climbing and hopefully the 5, 15, 30, etc should follow suit. If they do then we're back into the overall bull trend, hopefully for 4-5 days. Thoughts?

I should have seen this lovely reload trade coming!

I should have been able to work out that one of the larger bulls needed some rest before pressing on (supported by a line of much larger bulls than itself stood right behind it). I'm learning...just really slowly! A really nice opportunity missed but at least I am starting to understand them as opportunity, i'm not panicking and most importantly i'm learning...a ...

AUDUSD, 15 Long

Long opportunities for AUDUSD, need one confirmation when the price retraces (Will update if the trade is not valid) The technical analysis is reinforced with fundamental analysis, (Anticipation of a reversal of the commodity/commodity currencies bear market which was the longest since 1950)
