To find out if price is in or global trend a half year ACD should be applied.
Only half yearly Initial Balance can do this.
If weekly price stays primarily BELOW HALF YEARLY OPENING RANGE (INITIAL BALANCE - IB ) AND in-between IB and lower A-PIVOT = BEAR MARKET
If weekly price stays primarily ABOVE HALF YEARLY OPENING RANGE (INITIAL BALANCE - IB ) AND in-between IB and upper A-PIOVOT = BULL MARKET
If price moves into the opposite zone and manages to stay (!) there for a few weeks (time factor, spike is not enough) then a trend change is on the way in the next half year.
As you can see EURUSD´s macro trend is and we already broke half yearly A-PIVOT.
Fisher describes Opening Range ( IB ) as FULCRUM. It holds the market. Without it things collapse.
And as you see Half Yearly A-PIVOT breakouts are MASSIVE! One can not detect those by applying yearly opening ranges.
Also here, you can often observe similar loop post-breakout patterns as with yearly A breakouts.
I hope this technique will save you from many loosing trades! God bless!
