All right, its time to tackle some important questions and controversies. Do cycles exist in financial markets? Even if they exist, can we trade them profitably? Perhaps it’s often debated only on first scale and completely ignored on second scale basis. Let me take a dip into the topic and some insights alongside.
Recently, Indian govt announced a particular scheme in their budget notes which took a lot of attention, especially gold merchants and speculators.

If you are a regular reader of my articles, then you know “I hate technical indicators”. They are a derivative of price action, nothing more than a mathematical complex paralysis. My clients frequently question me-“Hey do you use any indicator”? Most probably my reply will be no-because majority of you guys know, I am a pure Price action trader!
Dow Theory is one of the most important trend following theories ever. As market evolved, the concepts of Technical analysis became more elaborated and complex, most essential foundation was forgotten in the Market literature.Even with much complexity nothing beats the Dow Theory on odds and logic.
