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.
