I don't want to get in the middle of any exchange with Trades.
For my part, most of this post escapes me (How/Why) beyond the statement that things (cycles ?) are not static.
That is why I was looking at a simple chart presentation.
Date____Event(expected effect on market/chart
Add a column for "market" if it makes sense, seems they all have their "events" on slightly different dates.
Right now, I would like to see that Corn chart that trades made "really nailed down" and understood as to what was expected of the market on those dates. Change the dates if necessary. Clear up any terminology as necessary.
Once we see what the effect of these cycle points is on a chart it should be easier to follow along.
There are words like, I think, Approximate, Estimate etc. that are pretty clear to most.
I think Mike Ritchie has a strong interest in not seeing a poster "chased, abused" when trying to explain something.
