Why Markets and The Search for Cycles?

Cycles have often been referred to as "the mysterious forces that trigger events." Cycles are found in all aspects of life; they range from the very short-term, such as the high- and low-water tidal cycles on the coastal beach, to the life cycle of a planet that lasts billions of years.

No matter what kind of markets you look at, they all go through cyclical phases. The same is true for economic hopes and fears, which ultimately add up to what happens in global financial markets.

Why subscribe?

The newsletter will keep you up to date on cycle analysis in global financial markets and the latest cycle detection algorithms beyond this type of technical analysis.

What is “Cycles +”?

Cycles + is the “plus” (paied) version of this newsletter. I will try to keep the main charts free for everyone in the main section. While I will add the following in-depth context for “Cycle +” subscribers:

  • Audio commentary (podcast) to explain and comment on the published charts per article with easy listening experience. Get the most out of the charts by listening to the audio commentary. Understand why different aspects of the published charts were selected and their significance. The audio commentary provides more context than the article's brief text description.

  • Access to interactive cycle workbooks will be linked in the "Cycles +" articles. This will allow any reader to open the charts as an interactive cycle workbook and "play" with the cycle analysis and datasets themselves.

  • Comments and questions about the charts will be available in the "Cycles +" section. Follow-up comments and cycle changes can be discussed and posted there. This is also the place where I will answer your questions. So if you would like to discuss certain aspects with me, this is the opportunity to do so.

So, in short. In the "Cycles +" section, you'll find further explanations and in-depth details on the selected charts, as well as explanatory statements, interactive workbooks with the datasets used, plus the opportunity to engage in a discussion. All in an easy-to-understand podcast style.

Using this mix of freely available charts with short comments in the main newsletter and additional supplementary explanations in the "Plus" area, I try to make cycle analysis accessible to a large audience.


My background includes authoring two books on cycle analysis, being the creator of the cloud-based Cycle Analysis Toolbox, and partnering with leading global cycle research organizations. With over 25 years of experience in digital signal processing, cycle analysis and market forecasting, I will share my view and experience on this subject area through this newsletter.
