Forecast from last May 17-18 weekend: "The 5/16 Geo CIT was most likely the 5/15L and we are now headed higher into the 5/22 Solar CIT, where we could retest the previous 5/13 ATH, but remain in the 4 week channel"

Actual: From the 5/15 Low, we rallied 34 SP's into 5/22 High at 1896.33 SPX, retesting the 5/13 All time High at 1902.17 SPX.

A few days down, followed by a few days Up, this has been the non trending nature of the market for the last 5 weeks, frustrating Bull and Bear alike and making it relatively difficult to trade for many. We remain in this 5 week trading channel, with channel resistance at 1905 SPX and channel support at 1868 SPX channel support. All trends are up, but whichever way it breaks this 5 week channel will determine the next major trending direction.

What's next: Swing Traders: We make a May 22-23 swing High and start a decline soon after into the next major swing Low at the next Solar and Geometirc Time and Cycle cluster.

Intraday traders: Intraday 5 min SPX Change in Trend (Highs or Lows) Times to watch for Friday 05/23/14: 10.40, 11.05, 12.15, 12.40 pm Eastern. The intraday cycle today is biased to be down and next Tuesday is biased to be up.

Ian Thijm BSc, MBA
Raj Times and Cycles

My first experience with the Stock-markets was during my MBA in August 1987, right before the 87 crash. Needless to say I fell in love with the markets and studied everything I could on Timing and Cycles in the Markets, including Gann, Bayer, Baumring, Astrology, Geometry, etc. Although I loved the markets, the markets didn't love me the 1st 7 years. Then I found a unique "Ezekiel Wheel" (Symmetry Point Cycle) based on the works of James Brock and in October 1994, I turned $5000 into over $112,000 in one month. I thought I had found the Golden Key to unlock all the market profits, but the markets again humbled me. I spent the next 7 years studying and researching various unique Time and Cycle methods. Then in June 2000, I met my Partner and I became a full time Investment Manager. Life, like Markets goes through Cycles and the next 7 years, I had the most valuable, enriching lessons in my life with Markets, People and managing Money. It was very enlightening. This brings us to the present day, where I feel the need to share and teach what I have learned and that is what this blog and website is all about. I hope it is worthwhile to you.
