March 19, 2016

Markets oscillate back and forth. I understand for people just coming in to this blog this may look like the Matrix or having to learn a new language. But keep in mind that it may appear to be difficult at first, but like speaking a different language, somehow it just flows out when you are […]

Free Markets are Nature’s Design

March 19, 2016

Everything is connected in nature including how our economy functions. A reader who grasped my piece on how everything is interconnected in markets sent this in. He made the connection with his non-linear observation. Something small can have profound impacts; the essence of Chaos Theory. The reintroduction of wolves in Yellowstone National Park changed even […]

Space Time – The Chicken or the Egg?

March 16, 2016

Fabric of Space Time QUESTION: Dear Mr.Armstrong, Do you think of cycles and time as the same thing and interchangeable?

Earthquakes and Intensity

March 8, 2016

QUESTION:  I thank you for including in your studies even the most intricate of historical information…your work has been fascinating to watch.

California Earthquakes

March 7, 2016

Plotting earthquakes in California for the “big one” is difficult due to the lack of historical data prior to 1857. From that point forward, the frequency appears to line up with the 8.6-year pi cycle insofar as the three major events — 1857, 1906, and 1989 — follow about 43-year (half-8.6) cycle. This is time period […]

Is There a Percentage Rally that Confirms a Change in Trend?

March 4, 2016

  QUESTION: Hello Martin, Can you verify the following statement: “No bear has ever resumed following a 20% rally.” As today marks a 21% move of the lows your expertise would be appreciated. Thanks!

February 14, 2016

Cycle of Peace

February 13, 2016

  QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong, What does your program tell us about cycles of peace? Respectfully, SP ANSWER: Of course. The Cycle of Peace is the counter-trend to the Cycle of War. Like the War Cycle, it is linked to the economy. If the economy turns down, that is when War turns up. I have always said […]
