• ### Cyclic Timing by JOHN HERRICK

ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Cyclic Timing by JOHN HERRICK The concept of cyclic timing can be applied to most charting systems, including the most sophisticated analytical systems; such as, oscillators. It is not adaptable to the Swing Vector System, because the passage of time is not laid out horizontally on that kind of chart. I urge you to give this new concept a fair test. I have discovered that cyclic timing will eliminate almost all signals that do not produce profitable moves. This concept has the probability of improving any charting system that produces graphic buy and sell signals. Those of us who have used ...

• ### GANN by CURTIS ARNOLD

ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...GANN by CURTIS ARNOLD The system I am going to demonstrate is based on some of W.D. Gann's works. For those of you who are not familiar with Gann, he was a legendary stock and commodity trader who purportedly made over 50 million dollars in the markets using his unique mathematical trading techniques. The trading method I have developed is based on two of Gann's most basic tools--his 1´1 or 45 degree angle and his trend line indicator. Refer to examples 1 and 2. Angles can be used to determine the strength of the market from a previous top or bottom. The 45 degree angle or 1´1 as Gann called...

ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Gold: Bull or Bear Market? by JESSE H. THOMPSON How to use a monthly swing chart to determine major trend. Before you attempt to answer the question, it is imperative to first define which trend you consider to be the greater trend. For in the crosscurrents of markets exist several trends coexisting over variable time periods. To one person an upmove lasting several days is a bull market while to another the very same move is considered a normal corrective rally within an ongoing bear market of longer duration in time. Therefore, first determine what you define as a bonified bull or bear mar...

• ### Letters to Technical Analysis

ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Letters to Technical Analysis Dear Jack: I'm having a problem with the new Fourier disk you just sent out. All goes well until it's time for the COMMAND LINE to appear. Instead of the COMMAND LINE I just get a blank cursor and the system hangs. I collect my data from CSI using their new Quicktrieve disk. Could that be the problem? I use CompuTrac for my analysis. --E R., Malibu, California...

• ### SIDEBAR: COMPUTER TRIVIA

ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...COMPUTER TRIVIA *The Analytical Engine (1835-1869) Because of lack of government support, English mathematician Charles Babbage (1792-1871) never got to build his invention, the design of which presaged the modern computer. Had it seen the light of day, the engine would have used data fed by punched cards, performed arithmetical calculations, and stored information in a memory bank. Lady Lovelace, the mathematically brilliant daughter of Lord Byron, developed some potential problems for the future machine, in effect acting as the first programmer....

• ### The Intra Day Analyst A Report by TIMOTHY C. SLATER/President, Intra Day Analyst Company

ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...The Intra Day Analyst -- A Report by TIMOTHY C. SLATER/President, Intra Day Analyst Company The last version of The Intra Day Analyst has been in the field for five months. During this time, it has undergone several revisions responding to users requests for modifications. With the exception of a few minor ""bugs"" (since reprogrammed), it has been trouble-free. Now that it is in wide use, I offer my observations and suggestions. 1. A trader should first be accomplished at inter-day trading before attempting to trade intra-day. On the face of it, this seems like a rather simple statement, but...
