Re: some explanation of methods

What you stated Randolph is perfectly accurate. Now, there immediately arises a misconception about projecting forward the next cycle turning dates. Cycles reinforce each other, and at other times interfere DEstructively (which means one is pushing higher while the other is pulling lower). Since each cycle is not the same length of time, they rarely land on the same date. When they do, they cause the major turns in the markets. it is at these times of landing on the same (or close to it) dates, that is easiest to project a turn. When they fall on dates separated farther apart, it causes double tops and bottoms.

I may not get around tonight to displaying past and future points in the manner Lee suggested. I'm trying to respond to as much as possible but have some things to do at the moment.
