21. The 4 to 9 Bar Cycle Count


21. The 4 to 9 Bar Cycle Count

Most markets follow a 4 to 9 bar cycle count from low to high and high to low.


The cycle count is accurate for all markets and all time frames. Meaning, it does not matter if you are trading pork bellies, currencies, indexes, or bonds; the cycle count is valid in all markets and all time frames, 1,4,6,10, 15, 40, 60, 120-minute charts.

Alpha Hunters -> Alpha CT 04 CycleWave indicator plots these cycle counts in real-time. 

The setup is to wait for the market to reach a cycle bottom or top and exit positions or look to enter the market going in the opposite direction.

Note: It is important to apply all these other models to determine when this cycle top or bottom is most likely to occur.  Meaning, if we are at a 9 bar cycle high band range, do we just sell? 

Not precisely...

It is important to see the angle of the Keltner Bands if we are above or below the Moving Average or where we are on the longer-term cycle bands of longer-term charts. Now,  you can see how we start to put the puzzle together. If the trend was down, we are below the moving averages, etc., etc., then YES, we would most like to sell this type of 9 bar cycle high trade. 

You are starting to see how this all works together.
