Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to all

May everyone of you have a grand Time in this holiday season.

Merry Christmas to all.

Here is a little story that fits the season.

Clay Balls

A man was exploring caves by the Seashore. In one of the caves he found a canvas bag with a bunch of hardened clay balls. It was like someone had rolled clay balls and left them out in the sun to bake. They didn't look like much, but they intrigued the man, so he took the bag out of the cave with him. As he strolled along the beach, he would throw the clay balls one at a time out into the ocean as far as he could.

He thought little about it, until he dropped one of the clay balls and it cracked open on a rock. Inside was a beautiful, precious stone!

Excited, the man started breaking open the remaining clay balls. Each contained a similar treasure. He found thousands of dollars worth of jewels in the 20 or so clay balls he had left.

Then it struck him. He had been on the beach a long time. He had thrown maybe 50 or 60 of the clay balls with their hidden treasure into the ocean waves. Instead of thousands of dollars in treasure, he could have taken home tens of thousands, but he had just thrown it away!

It's like that with people. We look at someone, maybe even ourselves, and we see the external clay vessel. It doesn't look like much from the outside. It isn't always beautiful or sparkling, so we discount it.

We see that person as less important than someone more beautiful or stylish or well known or wealthy. But we have not taken the time to find the treasure hidden inside that person.

There is a treasure in each and every one of us. If we take the time to get to know that person, and if we ask God to show us that person the way He sees them, then the clay begins to peel away and the brilliant gem begins to shine forth.

May we not come to the end of our lives and find out that we have thrown away a fortune in friendships because the gems were hidden in bits of clay. May we see the people in our world as God sees them.

I am so blessed by the gems of friendship I have with you. Thank you for looking beyond my clay vessel.

The 12/19 Low

From the Master Cycle 2 (MC2) 12/9 High (see last post:, the MC2 (click on chart to enlarge) was looking for a decline into 12/15 Low ( In Calendar Days, it was due in the weekend on 12/17L).

From the 12/17 weekend Email: " It is not clear what the 12/17 Solar CIT will be. It has a 84-90% accuracy and is at most +/-1 TD.  The Hurst 20 TD Cycle Low suggests a 12/20 Low +/-2, but should have arrived early at the 12/14 Low or we can still see a spillover 12/19 Monday Low"

Today's rally confirms the 12/19 Low as the MC2 Low (2 TD late),  the 20 TD Hurst Low and the 12/17 Solar CIT Low. It is rare for the MC2 to be more than 1 TD off, but the 12/17 Solar CIT and Hurst 20 TD Low pulled the markets down into Monday 12/19 Low. The MC2 is now looking for a rally into next MC2 Cycle High, then a sharp and fast decline should follow, be prepared.

Happy and joyful Holidays to all.

Gold Cycles and CITs

The 55 and 89 week cycle  have topped the Gold market at the September 2011 High

If we see a weekly closes below its 3rd uptrend line/Up channel this Friday, which looks like that is what will happen and hasn't happened since November 2008 (last 3 years), it is a major weekly sell.

We should watch for a retest of the broken channel line next week or so.

We also took out the last swing Low at 1594.80. Next support is the 38 and 50% retraces and majoe support is the 2nd up Trend line. 

Longer Term, Gold is still in a Bull Market, but we should see a multi-month retrace, if we close below and stay below the 3rd weekly up channel.

The Gold Index is near daily trendline support, suggesting at least a bounce is due.

Future Gold CITs (Change in Trend): 12/21, 12/27, 1/27/2012

Exercise, sport, and fitness and the 50% rule

Your biggest Wealth, is your Health.  Trading the markets can be a big stress on your health, here is an informative article on keeping fit the natural way.

Exercise, sport, and fitness – according to individual type, and stress-free

Sporting activity has many health-promoting effects: It keeps the body fit and mobile, it builds up the muscles, and strengthens the internal organs. Nevertheless, as with many good things in life, there is a right amount of exercise that should be taken; and if this level is exceeded, then the disadvantages start to outweigh the advantages.

Here we are not talking just about over-enthusiastic joggers who risk pulling a muscle or straining a ligament. The long-term effect of over-exercising is also bad for health: the body as a whole does not benefit, it loses its inner balance and its resources get exhausted. The Ayurvedic tips presented here will give you an idea of what is meant by ‘healthy exercise’. Ayurveda means literally ‘the science of long life’ and is considered to be the oldest and most comprehensive system of health in the world. And although Ayurveda came into existence about 5000 years ago, at the time of the great Vedic civilisation, the knowledge of Ayurveda is timeless, eternal.

50% of one’s capacity = maximum benefit
Too much exercise done in the wrong manner can be just as unhealthy as too little. Yet how do you discover what is the right amount for you? Most medical experts recommend exercising up to 75-80% of one’s maximum heart rate. But Ayurveda gives a simple rule of thumb: when one begins to sweat profusely, or when breathing begins to be heavy or laboured (so that one can no longer breathe through the nose but must instead breathe through the mouth) - at that point one should stop or slow down. This kind of fitness programme, in which one exercises only to a maximum of 50% of one’s own capacity, is balanced and ideal for health.
If this appears to differ from current medical opinion, it is because Ayurveda always takes a holistic view: i.e. the purpose of exercise is not just to build up the muscles and strengthen the circulation. Exercise and sport should above all contribute to maintaining the inner balance of the physiology as a whole, strengthening all organs and making the immune system more resistant to disease. According to Maharishi Ayurveda, exercise enhances well-being, and should reduce rather than increase stress. Over time, this makes for more enjoyment, and in the long term is more healthy than pushing one’s body to the limit so as to attain a temporary peak experience. The classical Ayurvedic textbook Charak Samhita says: “He who exercises to excess, his strength will suddenly vanish, like that of a lion trying to drag an elephant.” After exercise one should feel better and more energetic than before. According to Ayurveda exhaustion is a sign of “unhealthy” exercise.

Another important point is that exercise should be done regularly. It is better to keep yourself fit with a few minutes or half an hour of exercise up to 50% of one’s capacity, rather than torturing one’s body for two hours twice a week. The body benefits more from regular exercise, and, according to the classical Ayurvedic texts, over time becomes strong, energetic, flexible, and possessed of good stamina. The heart and other inner organs are strengthened, the digestive power is stimulated, and the mind becomes balanced and calm.

Individual differences
Ayurveda adds another insight to the modern approach, by giving individual guidelines based on age and “constitutional type”.
1. Age: People under 25 should exercise regularly and sufficiently. Children are generally very active anyway and naturally enjoy exercise and sport. However, they should not on any account be forced into things. As a rule, children themselves know how much and what type of exercise does them good. From 25 to 40 the whole thing can be taken in a somewhat more moderate fashion, depending on one’s constitutional type (disposition), which we discuss in more detail in Point 2. People over 40 should be even more moderate – exercise should be increasingly light, although still regular.(15 to 30 minutes per day).
2. Constitution: thin people with delicate limbs and quick movements (described in Ayurveda as Vata types) should engage in slow and mild types of exercise, ideally those which keep the body in continuous movement for 15-20 minutes. This would include walking, swimming, dancing, and bicycling. Such people should take extra care not to over-exercise, and in winter should perhaps favour indoor sports, since they are not so well able to handle cold weather.

People with average to strong build (Pitta), who have a good temperature regulation, can do more demanding kinds of exercise, for which 15-20 minutes of practice daily is enough. Suitable kinds of exercise include: water sports such as swimming and surfing; any sports that take place in the open air (skiing, climbing, bicycling, light jogging, and all team games and ball games).

People who are by nature somewhat more corpulent (Kapha) will profit most from regular exercise, although they are not usually very motivated. They can do exercise like jogging, long-distance running, and rowing, as they have the necessary stamina for this. 15-30 minutes a day are sufficient. For all types of people, some warm-up phase is recommended.

When to exercise
It frequently goes unnoticed that in relation to physiological biorhythms there are particular times that are better suited (or less well suited) to one’s personal exercise regime.
1. Time of day: mornings between 6 and 10 o’clock in the morning is the best time for doing something for one’s fitness. The evening is best suited for relaxation, rest, and recreation.

2. Time of year: In summer one’s daily work-out should not take place right in the midday heat. And in general one should take more exercise in autumn, winter and spring than in summer.

When not to exercise
  • when one is feeling exhausted
  • when one is ill
  • when one is hungry or thirsty
  • directly before or after meals. After a main meal wait at least 2-3 hours. But there is no objection to taking a walk after the meal, as an aid to digestion.
  • Women should exercise only lightly or not at all during menstruation, pregnancy, and for some time after childbirth. Certain yoga postures and antenatal or postnatal exercises are excepted from this, of course.

Food and drink

Food should be natural, freshly prepared, rich in variety, nutritious and tasty. It is less a matter of calories, vitamins and carbohydrates, than of recognising one’s own individual needs. The main meal should be at midday; breakfast and dinner should if possible be somewhat lighter. Taking regular meals is good for the body and enables it to make best use of the food. Special Ayurvedic drinks for physically demanding activities include: the vitality drink Almond Energy and teas such as Fitness-Exklusiv, Men’s Tea und First Lady.

Food supplements (The secret of ‘Rasayanas’)
Ayurveda describes a large range of herbal and mineral compounds. Not only do these contain high concentrations of nutrients, but the specific combinations involved in these food supplements produce additional and unique effects. The different ingredients complement and strengthen each other and can thus be absorbed by the body in an optimum manner. The most important Ayurvedic food supplement is Maharishi Amrit Kalash. It has been shown to reduce cell-damaging substances, the so-called “free radicals” (highly reactive fragments of oxygen molecules, which are produced in greater numbers when the physiology is under strain), and also supports the immune system in a holistic way. The food supplement Sport Rasayana is perfectly suited to sportsmen and sportswomen and any people who do a lot of exercise. This product comprises the Indian Amla fruit (amalaki). The Ayurvedic texts ascribe to it an anabolic (muscle-building) effect, as well as other nourishing and balancing qualities.

Yoga Asanas
Yoga Asanas are a harmonised and integrated sequence of Yoga postures which not only increase mobility, but above all improve mind-body co-ordination. However, they should only be learned from an experienced teacher. See addresses.
A sufficient period of recuperation is just as important as the actual activity of exercise. It allows the body to revive and to gather new strength. A gentle massage relaxes the joints and limbs that have been under pressure. It loosens the muscles and helps reduce lactic acid (lactate) which leads to stiffness. The massage will be even more pleasant if done with Ayurvedic Sport Massage Oil. In the rest period you can enjoy beneficial Ayurvedic aroma oils. These can also create a pleasant atmosphere in the fitness studio itself.
Regular mental relaxation is important for lasting success and inner balance. Transcendental Meditation is an ancient Vedic technique of consciousness, which is simple both to learn and to practise. Unlike other relaxation techniques, the effectiveness of Transcendental Meditation has been validated by rigorous scientific research.

And remember:
It is important to enjoy your exercise. These tips should be considered as hints, not rules. For professional sportsmen, all these Ayurvedic guidelines are applicable only up to a point, as they are obliged to train more in order to reach their peak performance. They are recommended to limit the damage caused by “free radicals” by taking the corresponding food supplements. What more they can do is to adhere strictly to the daily recuperation periods, and to go twice a year for a Panchakarma treatment (Ayurvedic purification therapy). Professional sportsmen report that these measures not only improve their health but enhance their performance.

Results of the 12/9-10 Time and Cycle Cluster

Results of the  12/9-10 Time and Cycle Cluster, mentioned in the last post:

1. 12/9-12 MC2 Cycle High
==> 12/9 High
2. 12/9 Solar CIT
==> 12/9 High
3. 12/9 Geometric CIT ==> 12/9 High
4. Squares from 3/6/09L: 12 squared weeks = 12/09/11==> 12/9 High
5. Squares from 10/11/07H + 39^2 = 12/10/11 ==> 12/9 High
6. 12/10 Lunar Eclipse ==> 12/9 High
7. 70 TD Cycle had a 12/9 CIT  ==> 12/9 High

The 70 TD Cycle (click on chart to enlarge) has been in the markets for a couple of years now, "Bond1" first mentioned it on the T&C Forums many years ago.  Erik Hadik and others knows it as the 14-15 week cycle. There are several versions of the 70 TD Cycle.

How did the Master Cycle 2 perform this past week?

Review of the Master Cycle2 (MC2) this past week:

1. The Master Cycle 2 (MC2) had a 12/2 Major High, was 1 TD Later at the 12/5 High.

2. The Time and Price square came in on 12/2, was 1 TD  later at 361 TD at the 12/5 High

Time and Price Square out at the 12/2/11 Cycle High
  1. 7/1/10 Low at 1010.91 SPX – 5/2/11 High at 1370.58 SPX.
  2. The Price Delta/Difference is 1370.58-1010.91 = 359.67 SP’s
  3. Time in TD: 7/1/10 Low + 359.67 Trading Days = 12/02/11H, +1 TD =12/5/11H
3. The MC2 then called for a decline into 12/7 Low, which is again 1 TD later at the 12/8 Low.

4. The MC2 was then looking for a 12/9 Up day, both the intraday cycle as well as the MC2 is looking for an Up day today 12/9.

5. There is a Time and cycle cluster on 12/9-10:
a. 12/9 Solar CIT (84-90% accurate)
b. 12/9 Geometric CIT (70-80% accurate)
c. Squares from 3/6/09L: 12 squared weeks = 12/09/11
d. Squares from 10/11/07H + 39^2 = 12/10/11
e. 12/10 Lunar Eclipse
, the 11/25 Solar eclipse was the 11/25 Low

Conclusion: The MC2
has shifted +1 TD forward, but remains on track despite all the Euro bailout and instability that is going on. The coming weeks could be most interesting.

The Master Cycle 2 review and the bailout fever

 The Master Cycle2 (MC2) has been uncanny and precise, even in its day by day predictions Up into the bailout decision this last weekend.  

The bailout this past weekend and on 11/30 has certainly skewed the prices higher than expected, but so far, the MC2's timing has been tracking fairly well. 

Please note: the Master Cycle does not always predict Price Magnitude as it is a Time Cycle, it tells you when to expect the next highs and Lows. We are dealing with a Global Central Bank intervention, which is like a QE3, but so far the MC2 has been ontrack. 

In general the MC2 (click on chart to enlarge) predicted a 11/28 Low and generally higher prices into 12/2 High.

The MC2 is +/-1 TD. The detailed day by day MC2 is not always a guarantee but so far so good:

1. Monday 11/28 Low, which was also a  38 TD Low, arrived 1 day earlier at the close of Friday 11/25 Low due to the  $500 Billion bailout weekend news.
2. 11/29: expect an up day and close near its Highs, which we saw.
3. 11/30: The MC2 suggested 11/30 should see initial weakness, then reverse higher and close near its Highs. 11/30 Globex saw a lower Low, then we saw a 2nd bailout news with Global Central Bank intervention and we closed on our Highs.
4. 12/1: expect a narrow trading day, that is what we saw.
5. 12/2 (today) Initially Up day and then reverse lower by the close.

The global Bailout news is a pure gamble and skewed the cycles higher than expected, but the timing has been pretty much in there. 

The bailout doesn't solve the underlying problems, it does one thing: It transfers the crooked gambling Banks debts to the Taxpayers of the world, something that needs to change soon.

You won't believe what the MC2 is looking for next, be prepared.
