How to use trading cycles in your own trading

Everything in nature moves in cycles. . . the cycles of the seasons … night and day… tides… phases of the moon. Each year animals hibernate… geese migrate… salmon swim upstream to spawn… and every seven years lemmings run into the ocean.

While nature’s cycles are very visible, there are many cycles in the futures markets that are not quite as obvious. Often the reason some cycles are not easily seen is because the interaction of many large and small cycles makes individual cycles harder to see.

Cycles are the tendency for events to repeat themselves at more or less uniform intervals. One of the easiest cycles to see and understand is the seasonal cycle.

More than 70 of the time, the lowest cash prices of the year for corn, cotton and soybeans occur during the fall harvest period.
