Traditional analysis - technical, fundamental, market conditions - helps us to determine where the market is in its natural cycle and where it is likely to go. Yet, that assessment requires context. Understanding the general stages of the various phases is important for evaluating whether trades are worth while, what to expect for return and holding period, conviction for reasonable sizing, and other crucial elements to our assessment of the markets as well as individual trades. In this weekend Strategy Video, we look at a basic cycle for trends, themes and even individual trades using the S&P 500, USDollar and EURUSD.
