MY CHARTING APPROACH

My charting style can be described as clean, to the point and educational. I use the methods and tools I have realized from experience works the best for me. And I have tried most tools out there.

My main toolbox includes classical technical analysis, cycles analysis (Bressert), sentiment, fibonacci and weinstein stage analysis. To help identify turns I also use ratio charts plus look for e.g. false breakouts, overthrows and undercut lows. In addition I have some unique tools developed from experience that you will catch up on as we go along, named e.g. around the apex move and rounded bottom kickdown. Same with cycles theory and its terms, it will get clearer as we go along.

And since all technical analysis starts with getting the larger trend right, I also use long macro cycles like the 54 year Kondratieff wave, 18 year debt/real estate cycle and 15 year commodities cycle.

Note that cycles analysis is the one and only tool that incorporates time as a factor. All other tools relating to technical analysis uses price and volume only. Cycles analysis is the only tool that also incorporates time, and that makes a difference. And combining both cycles analysis plus technical analysis in the same chart increases the advantage even more.

The combination of technical analysis and cycles analysis is really a match made in heaven. While many are forced to just guessing if big moves have started, using cycles analysis together with traditional technical analysis often gives you the roadmap.

I also of course use fundamental analysis for both macro analysis plus company analysis.
