For Trending Markets, the Weekly Crosses of the 13/34 week EMA have been remarkably accurate in calling LT Market Turns especially when a Trendline (thin black lines) coincide with the cross. I do not think that the current uptrend line has been established yet, the low on this correction will set the second point.

According to the Chart shown, we are still in a Bull Market ....I wonder how many Mutual Funds underperformed this simplistic approach?

Now it doesn't work for non trending markets like the SOX but I checked about 20 major World Indexes and subindexes and only 2 gave one or two whipsaws
but for simplicity, its a nice check of where we are at.

13/34 EMA work well in any timeframe. Just use trendlines, triangles and you have a nice trading system MACD Divergences also... in order to anticipate a reversal (one of the best..... if not the best momentum indicator)

the third movement is based on the Fibonacci sequence as this "written-out accelerando/ritardando" uses the rhythm 1:2:3:5:8:5:3:2:1.
