31. Extended Cycle Count


31. Extended Cycle Count

An extended cycle is where the market makes a move past a 9 bars cycle count. 


We watch for 10 + cycle counts and start to look for a fade model.


Things to consider when reviewing the Extended Cycle Count model are -

  • Is the market at a Double Top / Bottom?
  • Will this move create a Divergent Top / Bottom?
  • Where are the market cycle counts on the longer-term charts?
  • Is the market above or below the Moving Average, and what time frames?
  • Put the other trade models together to build the puzzle for entry.

Note: It is best to reach for fill prices (Go Fish) and not to trade all your contracts at first, but rather scale into trades and out of trades.
