Thanks Bovinator - I never thought to search Ituilips base for the name.
Spent 7 hrs last night reading his theories on cycles, Fibonacci et all.
Some of it has legs because it mirrors what we find in hydraulics / ocean wave theory. I guess I'm a linear thinker so it doesn't flick my switches. That said it was a fascinating read and I came away with the feeling I should go back, in more detail, and test it. The ability to time the market using these tools is a farce because all of the complicated algorithms that occur. Random walk/ chaos theory teaches you that. But its a lot less weird than a butterfly flapping its wings in the Amazon creating a tornado in Kansas as some would sell you.
