# How to Identify the Best Buy and Sell Timing

Figure 5-1: Conceptual drawing to demonstrate best buy entry

Say that EURUSD or Bitcoin have the large cycle and small cycle. Your best buy opportunity will be in the area where both small and large cycles are boosted together shown as the dotted line in the image. That is the thin intersection where both short term trader and long term trader are jumping in together. However, this is where most of average traders are stop thinking beyond. There is one problem in this image although its concept is perfectly sound. The problem is that the market does not have the regular cycle, which we can track its peak and trough with fixed time interval as in the sine curve of the Physics text book. Hence, this image is only educational to conceptualize the best buy entry. If it was like that, the money making in Forex or Stock market would have been so much easier buying EURUSD on Monday low and selling at Friday high something like this or similar. In fact, what makes us hard is that the market cycle is not regular but it is stochastic.

Market cycle is irregular. Sometimes, price moves in slow cycle and sometimes price moves in fast cycle. Sometimes price swings around big amplitude and sometimes price swings around only small amplitude. It is the observations we can make every day in Forex and Stock market, the fuzzy and dirty cycles instead of the clean sine curve. Hence, any technical analysis that does not consider this uneven and rough surface of the market is not effective to predict the market.

Figure 5-3: Fractal cycle demonstration

The good news is that understanding the fractal wave can help us to predict the market tremendously. It is because fractal wave is the tool that is theoretically designed to work with price data with many uneven cycles. Unlike the fractal wave, many other tools will suffer more with more number of uneven cycles in the price data, for example, like the normal distribution and other cyclic methods designed to operate with regular cycles. Hence, fractal wave is the best tool to predict the fuzzy and dirty cycles in Forex and Stock market. Theoretically, it is one of the best tool to model stochastic cycles in the Forex and Stock market too. The peak trough analysis is the important first step as it visualizes the fuzzy and dirty cycles in the readable form for us. Therefore, the technical analysis making good use of this peak trough analysis is the important tool to predict the market.

Now going back to the entry timing question, how can we catch the moment where the small and large cycles are boosted together using the technical analysis? Although the technical analysis is the good tool to predict the stochastic cycle, it still does not imply that they are designed to capture the multiple cycles. In fact, the answer is pretty straightforward. Catching the timing where the small and large cycles are boosted together can be done by combining two or more techniques to gauge your entry instead of just using one single technique. Combining two or more technical analysis is a good trading strategy as in practice we might need to capture the intersection for more than two cycles. Technically speaking, when you use multiple techniques, you have a high chance to capture the best entry.
