Early Cycle Count Up / Down

Early Cycle Count Up / Down -

There is a 4 to 9 bar cycle count that pretty much works on all markets and all time frames.  When the market is up just 2 or 3 bars, we would say "There is room to go" which means that there should be more bars in the same direction for the chart time frame. 

Many times, if the market is moving up and at cycle count 2 or 3, you could see a down close bar on the way to the 4 to 9 bar cycle count. 

How to trade this model?

If the market is moving up and again, up 2 bars, avoid trying to sell the market and wait. If long the market and you see a down close along the way, maybe not get scared out of the market.
