Trading Cycle Lows are measured from Low to Low only. This pattern is what we call the Primary Cycle.
When the market makes a TC low, we would expect the market to move up. Thus, this is only a buy reversal type pattern.
If the market makes a lower low after a TC Low is painted within 3 bars, then we will re-paint the TC Low.
Most TC Lows happen 16 to 28 bars apart.
We measure this by displaying HOW MANY BARS from the last TC LOW on Market Pulse.
All the TC Lows are in Cyan on this chart.
Detrend Source = We use the close of each bar.
Detrend Period =The way we determine TC Lows is based on a number of factors, the main one is the market has to move more than 15 bars from the last low and ALL TC Lows happen below the Moving Average. Thus, 15 is the moving average we use as default.
Start Low Count = This is set to 15 by default. Meaning it has to move at least 15 + bars from the last TC Low to activate.
Start Greek Cycle Count = This really has no meaning for the TC Low, but it is part of something else we are working on.
Threshold(s) = These are the background colors we use depending how many bars the market has moved from the last TC Low.
we look at this 2 ways :
1. If the market is due or over due from the last TC Low and is way above the Moving Average (15 period), we consider this a sell fade into the MA.
2. Once the market does make the TC LOW, we go back to the 4 to 9 bar cycle model and anticipate the same pattern(s).
