I don't make bold and outrageous statements roger. I don't need to be a 'guru predictor' and CALL a market as I will leave that for those that have a need for such recognition. You seem to have a need to be recognized as "calling a top or bottom". I don't really care about such things. AGAIN look at my last chart on Corn. It is clearly in a bullish uptrend right from the beginning of the 1st trade set up. What else do you need? Who needs major tops and bottoms when these patterns can be traded frequently with reliability with the trend and at a point where you know it isn't going to work and have a stop loss just under these price points to get out quickly with a small loss. Much better than betting our lives on someones prediction of a top or bottom. Where is the stop loss on your 'calls'? HUGE QUESTION!
And how can you explain seasonal charts from Moore Research that shows a chart with the 5 year trend, a 15 year trend and a 30 year trend chart all overlaid each other. AND they all track together closely with the only variance being the strength and weakness along the way to a minor degree. Or perhaps you are saying all these trends in all these time frames are suddenly going to change for your method of quantifying these highs and lows? I don't think so roger. If it were so the 5 year would be changing and have a different pattern by now.
