Pattern Pairs in the Complex Coordinate

In my June 16 and July 3, 2003 communications I showed that the 8 deep Monthly DJIA Coppock Curve buy signals since 1950 seem to pair off into 4 patterns in Cycloops phase space.

One of the 2 coordinates in that phase space is what I call (for want of a better name) the complex coordinate. When that coordinate is isolated on its own line chart, as to the same 8 signals, 4 pattern pairs seem to emerge once again.




The latest line chart is still unfolding. While the green path has diverged from the coral path over the past several months, notice that each of the other three pattern pairs persists despite suffering a similar divergence or two, some even lasting several months. So, from this point of view, the stock market is not behaving strangely and there is ample time for the green path to rejoin the coral path in order to preserve the pattern pair.
