March 2012 Spiral Dates Scores Chart

Posted: February 26th, 2012 under Predictions, Spiraldate Score Charts, Stocks.

Spiral Calendar Daily Scores For US Stocks For March 2012 spiral calendar scores for March 2012 show three peaks around the 2nd-4th, 10th-12th, and 22nd-24th (coinciding with the new moon on the 22nd) marking likely turn dates (highs OR lows).

In February the market continued its steady uptrend in defiance of calls for a top so there were no turns matching predictions.

  1. I discovered the February 2012 chart at the beginning of the month and out of curiosity kept track of the DJI / S&P500 / NASDAQ each day. I found the chart to be a very helpful guideline and was amazed, how accurate it turned out to be. Swings/shifts were not as dramatic as the curves may have suggested, nonetheless I only found approx. 5 misses, ignoring weekends and holidays in the U.S.. Not bad at all! I also checked some market key dates of the past and the charts of those months were right on! Thank you very much for your great work!

  2. Many of your calls have been striking in calling for abrupt reversals. Do you calculate spiral predictions such as the one on January 14th by hand? or, is there software that can be used? Your ballpark batting average appears to be quite high relative to chance. Do you use other techniques in conjunction with CC’s work? Thanks for posting these ideas.

  3. The Jan 14th post was about a single spiral calendar series that had matched several turning points previously so was worth a mention. I calculate that series and also the ones I use for the monthly S&P 500 score charts using a spreadsheet (Open Office now, used to be Excel) that is good at date arithmetic. The origins of each spiral series are highs and lows chosen by looking at a chart, so are not as consistent and unbiased as if they were chosen by a program. For example I have many more highs and lows in recent times vs in past decades simply because I have not taken the time to comb back through decades of daily data noting all the short term highs and lows.

    I haven’t done a performance chart recently comparing the prediction with actual market turns. The last one I did can be seen at this post.

    I have been working on developing software based on the Amibroker platform that can take any symbol and plot the spiral clusters. This uses uniform criteria for choosing highs and lows (and is adjustable with tunable parameters) and so is more objective and uniform over time. It can also plot spiral clusters for any daily time series not just for the S&P500. It is somewhere between alpha and beta quality – i.e. not quite ready for release, but it does produce interesting charts – I expect I’ll write up a post soon to preview it.

  4. Many thanks.
    I looked at the Amibroker platform and it looks like a good way to go for scanning purposes. It seems you would still need to label highs and lows by eye — and that likely would be a good thing and the way to go rather than trying to make the process completely automatic.
    What I find most odd is that none of this should work at all of course — and yet it appears to work with a probability much higher than chance.
    Have you looked at CC’s Saros idea? Another thing that should not work by any known mechanism, and yet maybe it does as we have not collapsed locally in the US or globally as yet and the logical date looms in the future. Of course the Saros idea does not have enough data to definitively establish a correlation — but the idea is intriguing.

  5. Hi Guys, I can not see April chart for spiral dates. Where is it? Many thanks!

  6. There isn’t one – instead I have posted Spiral Calendar Clusters No Better Than Chance as I now have evidence it doesn’t work.

  7. Oh what a shame, mate! It was very helpful for me. Any chance to post it anyway?, I believe it does not take a lot of work to publish one?

  8. […] Note that peaks in the score are supposedly more likely turn dates (highs OR lows) in the market. Scores for March 2012 showed three peaks around the 2nd-4th, 10th-12th, and 22nd-24th and we saw lows on the 6th, 23rd, […]
