Trends in Lower Time Frames = Cycles in Higher Time Frames

UPDATED: Friday 13 November 2020

Quick video today about trends and cycles using the Better Sine Wave indicator. I go through one of my favorite setups: End of Trend signals in the lower time frame chart synching up with Cyclical signals in the higher time frame chart. Remember:

Trends in lower time frames are equivalent to cycles in higher time frames.

In the end we got 3 trend and cycle setups in a row. Each was good for a 10 point move in the Emini. Here’s the chart with the two timeframes and signals annotated.

CME/Globex data and my chart settings

In October 2009, the CME/Globex exchange changed the way Emini trades were aggregated. As a result, I changed my multiple timeframe tick charts from 233 / 699 / 2,097 ticks to 500 / 1,500 / 4,500 ticks. This video was recorded before this change and so shows 233 tick charts, etc.
