Sine Wave

The Sine Wave is a technical analysis tool based on advanced mathematics that indicates if a market is trending or in a cycle mode. It helps traders identify the start and finish of a trending move as well as possible shifts in the trend. This leading indicator is also called the MESA indicator and was developed by John Ehlers based on an algorithm, that was originally applied to digital signal processing. It consists of 2 lines, called the Sine Wave and the Lead Wave. When the price is trending, the lines do not cross and usually run parallel and distant from each other.

Crossovers between these lines could signal turning points and generate buy or sell signals under the right conditions. The indicator can also signal if a market is overbought or oversold (meaning the price is unjustifiably high or unjustifiably low), which could point to a stalling or reversal of the trend. Whether used alone or in combination with other techniques or non-correlated indicators (such as moving average-based indicators), the Sine Wave is a useful tool in a technical trader's toolbox.

The "One More Thing" cycle in indicating a AAPL top

In march 2015, we revealed a running sentiment cycle of 116days in AAPL. Apple lost over 20% after this forecast during the next 100 days. This cycle is now back and signaling a cycle top. It is in timing alignment with current "One More Thing" announcement. The current dominant cycle as of today can be seen here: The ...

Litecoin buy-in opportunity. Potential double.

After a hefty sell-off, Litecoin has reached the bottom of a horizontal channel. If the sine pattern continues, Litecoin should double by the end of September. The RSI has reached the oversold zone and the bottom of it's sinuous oscillation, signaling a price reversal as well. Buy around 0.01 BTC and sell at 0.021

SBUX - Starbux's caffein sine waves

I see these two sine waves as you can see, market on the chart. In my head, this could play out as follow: - filling the GAP - wipe out the longs who placed their stop below the minor sine wave - pullback and... - ...because of short term overall market drop, wipe out even the stops below the macro sine wave. Whoaah...a little too far ahead for my feelings. But ...

Surprising to see how the price seems to follow sine wave in such narrow channel. Trend will change, though, after hitting the lower bollinger band, towards higher variance

RUT - Russel ready to start climbing.

Here is why I see that the Russel could climb again: The orange up sloping frequency shift is reached. From there, RUT jumped up - in addition, the sine-wave center was breached and hence price is ready to turn. Besides all these facts, there is one bar that caught my attention: The green marked one showed a nice intention to the upside - watch the close! So, ...

Here we have it picture perfect! On the left side, you can see the big sine-wave-swing. These sine-wave swings often get broken fist, before a further movement in the original direction. And so it happened. Price was not able to move further north. Oil organisations did all to keep price up - even manipulating in the news... As I wrote in the previous post: ...

Bitcoin Long-term perspective

Overlaying sine waves on top of a long-term weekly chart of Bitcoin suggests that the price could have already peaked for this time period and the next dramatic rise will not occur until 2020. Of course, this is only hypothetical based upon previous price movements. The result of the BTC ETF (due March 11th) if successfully passed could likely lead to a new ...

EURUSD - Intention for a crime...and they often come back. ;-)

So, here we have it again. After the blue "Time Eater", price has to break out of this range. You can identify the "killer break". It's made with intention, it will show up - like here, this huge bar (orange). After the breakout, there is a small pause (yellow Sine Wave Center). This Sine Wave Center will often get broken, because the week hands hide their stops ...
