4008 Cycle MoMo [MACRO Cycle Analysis]

MONEY MANAGEMENT // term //: Refers to managing the size of market risk to ensure one's ability to keep going thru the
inevitable bad periods that every trader experiences. Money Management is the science of keeping your risk of ruin at acceptable
levels while maximizing your profit potential. Trade small enough you wont go broke and large enough to make it worthwhile.

PROTOCOL // noun //: A system of rules that explain the correct conduct and procedures to be followed in formal situations.

4008:1 Cycle MoMo [MACRO Cycle Analysis]

The term TAILWINDS describes some condition or situation that will help move growth higher. For example, falling gas prices will help
a delivery company be more profitable. Lower gas prices is said to be a tailwind for the freight services industry. HEADWINDS are just
the opposite. Its a situation what will make growth more difficult. For example, if the price of beef goes much higher, McDonald's is facing
headwinds.

NOTE: Cycle MoMo is NOT to be used in deciding if you should or should not trade a particular stock.
The chart of the stock you are considering taking risk with (micro) should be your guide. Cycle MoMo (macro) simply tells
us if there are TAILWINDS or HEADWINDS when taking risk with a momentum stock. For me, Cycle MoMo comes at the END
of my decision process to take risk, NOT the beginning. In Map Syntax land, MICRO always takes precedence over MACRO.

4008:2 Value vs Growth and Sectors

As a rule, growth stocks this year (2017) are technology, consumer discretionary, and health care.
As a rule, value stocks this year (2017) are financials, energy, and consumer staples.

Note: Some stocks are considered both a VALUE STOCK and a GROWTH STOCK. For instance, many Healthcare (Large Pharma: AMGN, GILD,
BMY) are considered GROWTH STOCKS but have recently been included in VALUE indexes. The chart above helps in regards to
HEADWINDS or TAILWINDS regarding SECTORS in the macro.

4013: SP 1500 New Highs v. New Lows ..Market Risk Model Component

Are you MACRO driven? One of the simplest ways to be in SYNC with the MACRO is to let the cumulative New Highs-New Lows
guide you. Watch how good your performance increases when you only trade to the long side when the indicator is positive and only trade
to the short side when the indicator is negative. Note: This is a lagging indicator and not good at timing tops or bottoms on an index or stock.
BUT it will increase your odds of success greatly if you trade within the context I described above.

4014: NASDAQ New Highs - New Lows ..Market Risk Model Component

Are you MACRO driven? One of the simplest ways to be in SYNC with the MACRO is to let the cumulative New Highs-New Lows
