‘Performance cycles’ is a term coined by Orpheus Capitals. This is another name for time triads, time arbitrage, time fractals but expressed in terms of relative performance. It’s a bounded oscillator that moves from 1 to 30. 1 is top relative performance and 30 is worst performance. The idea is that performance is cyclical. A top performer will underperform in future and vice versa. A top relative performer is also the worst value pick and the top relative underperformer is the best value pick.

The signals are carried over three different time frames viz. sub minor (2-3 days), minor (10-30 days) and intermediate (above 30 days). This is a daily signal product. The signals will be illustrated through tracker and running portfolios.

This is a part of the time triads analytics developed by Orpheus Research.

Coverage: Forex (EUR USD, AUD USD, GBP USD, CAD USD, JPY USD, CHF USD, Yuan Rnmbi, Indian rupee, NZD USD), Energy (Crude, Natural Gas, Gasoline, Heating Oil, Petroleum, Carbon Emissions, Brent, WTM, Energy Index), Metals (Precious Metals, Tin, Zinc, Nickel, Copper, Platinum, Silver, Industrial Metals Index, Gold), Agro (Coffee, Corn, Grains, Livestock, Sugar, Wheat, Soybeans, Cotton), Thematic and Global Equity (Coal Mining Fund, Shipping Fund, Dow Industrials, Sense, Agricultural Equity, Water, Nuclear, Russell 2000, Russell 1000 USD), Bonds (US 30, US 5Y,  US 10Y, US 2Y, INR Bond Index, China Bond Index, Australian Bond Fund, Global Bond Index, Sweden Bond Index).

Performance cycles is a term coined by Orpheus Capitals. This is another name for time triads, time arbitrage, time fractals but expressed in terms of relative performance. It’s a bounded oscillator that moves in a range say from 1 to 30. 1 is top relative performance and 30 is worst performance. The idea is that performance is cyclical. A top performer will underperform in future and vice versa. A top relative performer is also the worst value pick and the top relative underperformer is the best value pick.

Time is a social construct and we see time through the life and nature around us. Understanding time can not only give a unifying theory to research of a few thousand years, but also help us understand the world we live in. Time evolves, oscillates and continues. Time comes before everything, but we don’t see it. We just feel it. We believe what we see and this is why understanding what we don’t see is a challenge. Understanding time could bring more than a conventional thought down, it’s a revolution, which could rock the very foundation of economic thought or the geometric structures Euclid laid down in 300 BC. We are at the start of the journey, but if time is indeed the real mathematics, we could see high accuracy in time forecasts.

Econohistory is the study of performance cycles between assets. Cycles are the generic name for time fractals. Performance cycles can be studied for any time frame, for as small as a tick data to multiyear time frames. This objective approach to performance cyclicality can explain why intermarket analysis is an area of study? Why bonds and commodities tend to be inversely related? What is the connection of Oil with world markets? Why the world watches DOW sometimes and sometimes a 500 point effect on DOW seems to have no impact? Why correlation between assets moves from near perfect at times to weak correlation at other times? Why the same news has different impact on a stock or market? Why equities and bond trend together and why the relationship decouples sometime? When will inflation become deflation, disinflation, stagflation or hyperinflation? When and why does gold outperform and underperform silver? Econohistory can objectively answer these questions, using performance cycles, time fractals and past data. Economic history is mathematical.

The Auto Story

The auto sector exponential growth suggests that it’s time to rethink for auto manufacturers and investors alike.
The modern city I knew as a child keeps changing. There used to be more roads and less cars, now there are only cars. If you want to see roads and have driving pleasure you have to skip two thirds of the day. Ok this may be more valid coming from an emerging market like India or China, but the emerging market outlook for auto has been assumed to be significant globally.
The conventional thought may see auto growth as economic growth, signs of prosperity. The auto sector would do well then it is a sign of continued growth. How good is this indicator? Have we not come a long way from assuming that auto is the leading indicator that powers the economic cycle up?
Indicator failure is a reality and ‘the car story’ also stands challenged, at least in the form that we know today.

Rieki challenges the INR Triangle

Elliott Triangles are five legged continuation structures that are one of the higher integrity patterns i.e. they have a higher chance of resolution. In this case up (illustration). However, that’s not what happened. Though as eager Elliotticians we were watching the triangle (which also failed us), we somehow ignored Orpheus Rieki which was clearly suggesting a topping structure. The INR USD Rieki continues to top suggesting that INR USD may have further down to go. Sub 45 prices could dip to 44 now that the high integrity five legged triangle has failed.
EUR and GBP moved up, Reiki is non confirming implying a completing structure. As anticipated JPY has bounced back sharply confirming the upmove being indicated by Reiki. The pair now seems headed towards 88-89. Key Reversal on weekly chart is further confirming the view.
AUD continued higher with its complex corrective. However with Reiki failing to confirm the new high, we continue to look at a completing structure.  CAD continued to strengthen. With Reiki bottoming the pair seems headed towards parity. CHF Reiki also points lower. We continue to look at a completing structure and expect the pair to head towards 1.06.
