Habit or Cycle?
You, me and the rest of the world – all have natural cycles within us – even if we haven’t recognized this. We are waking up at 8 am to go to work or we are drinking just milk for breakfast or maybe we go to bed every night at a certain time, doesn’t matter…
If just you and no one else were waking up at 8 am, you would have your own personal habit or cycle. Make sense?
What is a mass mind cycle?
Think about how many people are waking up at the same hour you do and have the same routine as you do… what would you call that? Habit? We would call that a mass mind cycle!
Traders act exactly the same way – they may decide to buy Microsoft or Apple at a certain day or time – based on their technical analysis – but most of them are using the same or similar technical analysis tools. – This is also what we call a mass mind cycle.
Imaging knowing in advance what the mass mind cycle of traders will be doing – buying or selling? What could you do with that information?
This is exactly what we have been studying with our algorithms for the past over 75 years!
Nowadays you can find on the internet literally thousands of cycles-oriented websites and software. But in fact, to be fair, wherever you see the word “cycles” being used to analyze trading, somewhere along the way, they got their cycle knowledge from the work we started in 1941! Our organization actually got its start in 1931 when Edward R. Dewey was the head of the Census Department under US President Herbert Hoover.
After Hoover left office, Dewey started the Foundation for the Study of Cycles in Connecticut in 1941. The US Government has acknowledged our pioneering of cycles research area by issuing us a registered trademark on the actual word CYCLES®.
In fact, legally, now no one else on the internet can use the word CYCLES® in their analysis without us giving them express written permission to do so.
