1. T : Time and space (Fractals); 2. R : Repeating Cycles; 3. A : Advancing Trend; 4. D : Declining Trend; 5. E : Energy in Phase Forces.
Now the letters in MAP:
6. M : Momentum and Velocity; 7. A : Analysis of Structure; 8. P : Price Performance. There you have it: Don's personal "TRADE-MAP".
For an example, let's apply the TRADE-MAP approach to MO. Here is a continued analysis of what I published three days ago: After point "D" was established, I did a of impulse leg D to A. MO did indeed sell down to the first key area, usually Fibonacci .618. The second strength in this chart is the in the background. If you look left to the mid-point of the chart, the cloud is rising as it moves to the right. The cloud movement higher is . So too is the upside reversal at Fibonacci .618 ($60.47). These are both indications of STRENGTH ahead in MO."
The red arrow in the upper right shows the at 1.272 (where I think MO will pause, first price target of approximately $65.06). On this chart I also used Fibonacci time cycles (long vertical blue lines). Please note that these cycle lines did indeed show me "WHEN" significant events happened in MO. The next Fibonacci time cycle is due on April 18, 2016. Does this mean MO will keep hitting new highs until this date? Will Fibonacci 1.272 ($65.06) be hit on this date? Who knows? But, I now have a clue as to WHEN something is likely to happen. It forces me to anticipate change. Now, please move to Part 2 of this five part series. I hope this has been entertaining, informative, and helpful. Yours for better trading, Don.
