I have found using the default FLD trading strategy (trading the 20 day cycle using the 20 day FLD with 3 interactions of the 20D, 40D, and 80D cycles) works well when the 80 cycle is visually dominant. When it is not, as in Derek’s peso example, the interactions are sometimes buried by the trend (either up or down). The S&P since the 2/2016 low is another example where just looking at the 10 week cycle can be confusing.
Below is the MXNUSD cross weekly using the nominal model with what my Hurstonian eye sees as the dominant cycle. I have added estimates of where the G and H interactions might occur.
B and C are a little fuzzy (again, because of the strong up trend), but overall it makes sense to look at the bigger picture first, then drill down to the day-to-day details. However, this doesn’t help if you prefer to only trade a shorter time frame. As always, flexibility and use of the advanced computer between our ears is important.
Maybe David H. can weigh in.
