the initial impulse move … is the DNA

spent last night w/ my wife of 23 years and best friend since we were 15, at the Andrea Bocelli concert …as a self proclaimed market musician on many occasions I found myself w/ eyes closed trying to hear the different chords/tempo and harmony being blended.  it was pretty cool …so this morning I thought I would take you down a trip along “harmony” lane and talk about the initial impulse move or DNA of ANY liquid instrument.

the longer the chart time frame the better .. we have shown the ability of “nodes” from the late 1800’s taking part in moves that have occurred in the 2000’s.  so if you have long term data, use it.  in this case we are looking at the low on the bonds from 1981.  this low created the very powerful 30+ year move in fixed income.

1.  the bold blue arrow is the “seed” or “DNA” that begins this move … do you know it at the time? probably not.  HOWEVER, after the first pullback (on a long term chart) you can start to assume a major inflected top or bottom is in place and start the trip down the “harmony” lane.

2.  from that initial impulse move up (note it takes it account the slope of the move – you include PRICE and TIME) draw a SQUARE.  Now, using “standard” trend line tools draw a 45 degree angle and then, well, your done.  connect the 45 degree angle to the top and the low of the box and simply take a look at what appears.  THE HARMONY/GEOMETRY of the MOVE.

now, as far as this chart goes we have a lot of “stuff” going …

1.  note the largest corrective move in the 30+ year BULL RUN takes us into the 123 11 area.

2.  note, this largest corrective move occurred during the 2008 thumping in equities.  it’s already 3/4 over and equities haven’t even moved … hmmm.

3.  if you look at the wave structure is sure looks like we are in wave 5 of 3 that “should” take us to attack that level indicated by the horizontal blue line.

4.  note how the “trend line” and the “measured move correction” come together right in/around the 123-124 level.

5.  let’s not forget, this is a massive BULL run so it would only make sense that the trend will continue.  this 123-124 level will be the line in the sand, IMHO (h= humbled) opinion.

stay tuned ….

here’s the dollar index, takes about 10 minutes

the DNA is the initial impulse move

the DNA of any move in a liquid asset is the initial impulse move off of a low or a high.  In that, all else will take fold.

below we have a chart of the EURO w/ nothing on it…

here’s the four things we need to do to give birth to ALL of the trend lines on the EURO from the most recent low…

  • now, we draw a VECTOR (vectors have both a PRICE and a TIME) off the low into the first high.  that is the bold blue arrow and is the DNA
  • draw a 45 degree angle UP from that low point.  (the famous GANN 1×1) that is the bold  purple line
  • draw a 90 degree angle from the top of the blue arrow to connect to the purple line.  that is the light blue line …
  • draw a 26 1/4 degree line up from the low and, note, it intersects the square exactly in the middle.  That is the red line ..(the famous GANN 2×1)
  • now simply copy/paste these lines into the future to give rise to all future turns …

is it possible to trade every hit of these lines? I would submit “no” but perhaps someone out there or some computer program can … for me, they are simply a very powerful roadmap to follow.  I’ll look for a pattern and I have, in my head, “gates” or “intersections” to follow …

our “short zone” worked and we have had a very feeble 5 day rally … 1.3500 could have done it but I still “feel” a little higher might be in the cards.

hope you enjoyed
