DJIA & FTSE 100 Short Term Cycle Update 17/4/2016

This was a very good green period. Both the DJIA and FTSE 100 were up over 150 points. I am still unsure about the 4 day shift and continue to monitor it, however I exited my longs last week.

I am up 1975 points since I started trading this system on 29 Sept 2015 (using FTSE 100 CFDs), just a little ahead of the 1518 that the short term cycle produced. I don't trade it exactly, but look to enter longs at the end of the red period/beginning of green period.

DJIA & FTSE 100 Short Term Cycle 10/4/2016

The DJIA was broadly flat from 20/3 to 4/4 gaining only 0.77% (135 points). The FTSE 100 lost 0.4% (-25 points) during the same period.

Adding on the four days that I mentioned as a possible shift in the cycle, the DJIA was still flat from 24/3 to 8/4 gaining only 0.42% (74 points). The FTSE 100 gained 0.09% (5 points) during the same period.

I want to see what the difference is during the positive periods over the next two cycle before I change the short term cycle dates.


DJIA & FTSE 100 Short Term Cycle 18/3/2016

The Dow gain was excellent but the FTSE disappointing, both positive though.

As per the last short term cycle post, the cycle seems to have shifted by four days so I am watching to see if we get a high on 24th March 2016.

DJIA & FTSE 100 Short Term Cycle 27/2/2016


The short term cycle continues to accumulate pips. I only trade long and tend to buy towards the end of the Red period.

The actual January high was on 29/1/16, four days after the end of the Green period.

The actual high February low was on 11/2/16, four days after the end of the Red period.

So far the actual February high was on 26/2/16, five days after the end of the Green period. It is worth watching to see whether this is shift continues going forward into March.
