Will The 6-7 Year Alternating Cycle Pattern Return In 2013?

|Includes:SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (DIA), QQQ, SPY

This 6-7 year alternating cycle pattern or YAC Pattern over the last 113 year period has captured most of the largest percentage declines as well as largest percentage rallies. Some All-Time Highs in various indices & on other occasions caught the highs or lows for that decade. It's not perfect at picking a precise day, week or even the month. Sometimes it skips a beat However just to be aware that the potential of it striking should leave everyone on guard! When the cycle exerts it's force on the market it will move a large percentage many times in a short amount of time. Get Ready!
I needed to use Dow 30 for longer term data reasons.
