One of the most promising forms of analysis I've seen has to do with trading using time and price tools. This involves studying both time and price in the framework of geometry/sacred geometry to find turning points in the market. The trick is that you must consider both time and price together, and not just one or the other. This is where the proponents of Fibonacci always fail - they hardly ever consider the time element. Here's an example setup that I came across last week:

This is a two minute chart of the e-mini. Notice that the market has been making nice 2-4 hour swings for about the past day or so. This is the perfect time to look for a time and price trade. On the chart above, we can see the price aspect. The two fans are set up with slope factors of the various swings they are plotted on. So the light blue fan rises at a rate equal to the swing A-B. The yellow fan moves at the same rate as swing B-C (but is pointing up instead of down). Once the basic slope has been computed, we can multiply the speed by whole numbers to get the various spokes that make up a complete fan. Notice that the last bar on the chart (at point D) is hitting up against both fans at the same time. It is exact. This tells us to pay attention.

Looking more closely, the market is also bumping up against an ABC swing. This tool is a proprietary support/resistance finder that comes with Wave59. It can be amazing at times. It's hard to see the line since it's covered by the fans, but look closely and you'll find it. It's a pink horizontal line.

Lastly, our 9-5 count (a price cycles tool) has given us a red "9" on this bar. That means the cycle has completed and the market is free to change directions. The key here is that everything is synchronizing so exactly. There is very little slop at all.

So what do we do now? Jump in and sell 100 of these babies? No! It doesn't mean anything unless you can also find something important happening in time as well. If there's not a time component involved in the trade, the signals are meaningless. Markets are composed of price and time, not just one or the other. Both have to be studied. Learn this basic rule and you'll be head and shoulders above the whole Fibonacci crowd.

So let's look at time:

The time counts between each of the swing points are displayed on this chart. They are measured in degrees of rotation of the Earth, not in bars. Here are some interesting relationships that are forming:

C-D / B-D = 0.601 (will be perfect 0.618 in 2 bars)
B-D / B-C = 2.51 (perfect 2.5 this bar)
C-D / B-C = 1.51 (perfect 1.5 this bar)
A-B / B-D = 3.189 (perfect 3.1415 [Pi] was 1 bar earlier)
B-D / A-B = 1.40 (perfect 1.414 [sqrt 2] is this bar)

So there are some important relationships happening here. When you see a bunch of numbers start popping up that make sense in sacred geometry, it's a sign that the market is completing a trend. Also notice the cluster at the bottom using the Time Cluster indicator. This is further confirmation that something is happening at this time.

If you want to go further, you can also look for astrological triggers. There were a few minor ones at this point having to do with the Ascendant, Midheaven, Sun, and Moon as viewed from New York. I'll just mention that, and let readers check it out for themselves.

So we have time and price coming together very strongly. That bar ended up being the high of the day, and the market ended up closing 10 points lower. This kind of analysis can catch some killer trades, but you've really got to be on top of things to see the relationships in time to take action. Hopefully, this showcase will be encouragement to keep alert.

Happy trading!
