    Dear Matt,

    Thanks a lot and look forward to receiving your updates by email which have registered. Appreciate your input as always.

    Noted on June 1, 2018 Bradley Siderograph Turn Date. Keeping a close eye on that.

    Kind regards

    Ramesh

    Hi Matt, How should we read between the three:

    March 27 (42/100 Middle Terms Power)
    May 17 (40/100 Middle Terms Power)
    June 1 (100/100 Bradley Siderograph Power)

    Also do you do a daily update on the Graphs? If so which website should I see it. Thanks.

    Kind regards

    Ramesh

    • Hi Ramesh,

      The Middle Terms are intended to reflect shorter term market movements, whereas the Long Terms and the Bradley Siderograph itself are intended to cover longer term market movements.

      Donald Bradley described this as follows, “The long-range movement of the averages is known as the primary trend. The primary trend is comparable to our own principle of the Long Terms. The intermediate movement of the averages is called a secondary reaction. Secondary reactions are suggestive of our theoretic Middle Terms.”

      Therefore, I personally would focus more on the June 1, 2018 Bradley Siderograph Turn Date with a Bradley Bars power of 100/100 between the three dates you mentioned. The other two Middle Terms Turn Dates correspond instead to shorter-term market movements.

      I typically update the graphs on the site a few times a year, and I will likely update them within the next few days. However, I have an idea that could be a great solution if you want to use graphs that are updated more frequently. If you want to be on the email I send out in a few days with this solution I encourage you to sign up for the free Bradley Siderograph email updates. To sign up go to the main page of the site (i.e., https://bradleysiderograph.com) and enter your email address on the sign-up form, which is typically located on the right sidebar.

    What is the significance of this March 27 (42/100 Middle Terms Power). Does it mean this is the mid term bottom??

    • Hi Ramesh,

      That’s exactly right. On March 27th the Middle Terms reach a bottom. The value of “42/100” represents the significance of this bottom.

      The Turn Date Power (e.g., “42/100”) is intended to be a more precise way of identifying Turn Dates. However, many people who leverage the Bradley Siderograph place equal weight on all Turn Dates.

      Thanks for your comment.

    Where did I read that January 29th was a major Bradley Turn date? I even jotted it down. Mistake somewhere?

    • Hi Tony,

      When I first created the site I had not yet developed the Turn Date power concept that calculates Turn Dates mathematically rather than by using judgment and “eyeballing it.” Therefore, you may have seen an earlier version that still used the judgmental version. See below for a link to the “old” judgmental for another year for an example of what the previous version looked like:
      https://bradleysiderograph.com/2020-turn-dates-sp500/

      At the end of January 2018 the Bradley Siderograph starts to increase significantly after being in a holding pattern for a couple of months. It’s possible that this is what could have contributed to my judgmental assessment of a Turn Date at that time.

      Regards,
      Matt
