Forex Time Cycle Monitor Explained

By Lawrence

Forex Time Cycle is one of many unique tools we have created for use with forex trading.

First, take a look at an example of the time cycle table.

Each cell provides you with 2 turning points based on the hourly chart of the pair labelled at the top of the cell. The turning points are reported in GMT.

For example, a bottom projected at 10/11 10P (as taken from the EUR/USD pair) means that short term cyclical behaviour in EUR/USD is likely to strengthen up on Oct 11 10 pm GMT. In Eastern Time, that is Oct 11 5 pm.


By looking into all possible combinations of time cycles in the near term, the strongest cycle can be identified that, should one choose to blindly follow the turns of the particular cycle, one can outperform all other purely time based cycles.

Such method works alright for a single pair given proper money management is applied.

When the concept is applied across many pairs, however, something much more useful is discovered.

When a particular currency is found to turn stronger (or weaker) against multiple currencies within a short time window, the probability of a strong directional move increase significantly. This makes the Forex Time Cycle a great complimentary tool for any primary trading signals one employed.

    But what is, or where is, thisTime Cycle Monitor tool? The example refers to price action some weeks ago. How can it be used for current price action? Is it intended to be updated daily like the Cheatsheets or will the tool itself be made available to NT users?

    The Time Cycle Monitor is updated daily, showing on the first page of this site. You do not notice that?

      Thanks – I probably did notice it when I first looked last week but today I was just looking at article itself and beamed off the email too hastily!!!!!
