Review: In my last post, 3 weeks ago, on Jan 17, I was looking for a 1/17-21 swing High and start a decline that was part of a Panic Cycle. http://timeandcycles.blogspot.com/2014/01/the-active-panic-cycle.html

Actual: We made a 1/21 swing high and saw a sharp 111+ SP decline so far. The Panic cycle was looking for an initial 50-60 SP decline, but we more than doubled that, with more to come.

From the 2/4 Update: "We are extremely oversold, but the decline should continue into 2/5 Low+/-1 at the 2/4 Solar and or 2/6 geometric CIT. The Symmetry Point Cycle suggested a 1/21 High and a 2/6 Low. Mercury becomes Retrograde on 2/6 as well, which is often a CIT. Downside support is the 6/24/13L-10/9/13L trend line support at 1738 SPX and the 50% retrace at 1738 SPX."

Actual: The markets declined into a 2/5 Low, bottoming right at the 6/24/13L-10/09/13L Trend line support at 1738 SPX, at the 50% retrace from the 8/28/13L and 38% retrace from the 6/24/13L, both at 1738 SPX, 1 day after the 2/4 Solar CIT and 2/4 Squared Trading CIT and 1 day before the 2/6 geometric CIT, 2/6 SP Cycle CIT and 2/6 Mercury Retrograde CIT.

Squares in Trading days CITs

The above squares in Trading Days CIT is a Square of 9 timing technique that gives very precise Change in Trends (CIT), all dates are +/-1 TD.

1. 10/11/07H - 11/16/12L = 1285 Trading Days (TD), take the Square root of 1285 and you get: 35.85^2 (35.85 squared)

Now increment that number by 1 or 2 each time and re square to get future CITs:

2. 35.85+2 = 37.85^2 = 1433 TD + 10/11/07H = 6/24/13L

3. 35.85+3 = 38.85^2 = 1509 TD + 10/11/07H = 10/10/13L-1

4. 35.85+4 = 39.85^2 = 1588 TD + 10/11/07H = 2/04/14 +1 = 2/5/14 Low

Please note that 2/4 was also a Solar CIT, suggesting strongly that 2/4 +/- 1 TD was going to be an important CIT. This became the 2/5 Low as expected.

What's Next?: We made a 2/5 Low and should rally until the next swing High at the next proprietary Time and Cycle Cluster CIT, before we see yet another sharp decline.

Ian Thijm BSc, MBA
Raj Times and Cycles

My first experience with the Stock-markets was during my MBA in August 1987, right before the 87 crash. Needless to say I fell in love with the markets and studied everything I could on Timing and Cycles in the Markets, including Gann, Bayer, Baumring, Astrology, Geometry, etc. Although I loved the markets, the markets didn't love me the 1st 7 years. Then I found a unique "Ezekiel Wheel" (Symmetry Point Cycle) based on the works of James Brock and in October 1994, I turned $5000 into over $112,000 in one month. I thought I had found the Golden Key to unlock all the market profits, but the markets again humbled me. I spent the next 7 years studying and researching various unique Time and Cycle methods. Then in June 2000, I met my Partner and I became a full time Investment Manager. Life, like Markets goes through Cycles and the next 7 years, I had the most valuable, enriching lessons in my life with Markets, People and managing Money. It was very enlightening. This brings us to the present day, where I feel the need to share and teach what I have learned and that is what this blog and website is all about. I hope it is worthwhile to you.
