The primary system risk window for a turn or acceleration of the current trend for this coming week appears to be Wednesday the 13th of December.  

 

ASTO gurus are pointing to Monday the 11th as a big stock market event risk day.  My system does show a minor peak in risk that day, but not nearly as large as the peak on Wednesday. 

 

Last week the December 4th risk window tagged a high and the 6th risk window caught a low in RYDHX.  The market action the first half of this week should clarify which was more important.

 

Regards,

Douglas

Thank you, Larry,

 

Much appreciated.  Can you say at all how your derive these risk windows, or is it proprietary?

I derive the risk windows in an EXCEL spreadsheet in which I list events, cycles, etc.  that I have learned in my nearly 35 years tinkering around in the stock market that appear to regularly turn markets or are coincident with past market turns.  A good example is the FED meeting decision day.   Each is weighted depending on how reliable it has been in catching turns.  The total for each business day is then calculated.  I call for turns or acceleration of the trend on days with either very high risk values or very low ones.  I hope that I identify enough market movers to shade the odds in my favour for at least some of the periods of elevated risk for a turn or acceleration of the stock market.  I am constantly on the lookout for news ones to add to my already long list.
