Take the opportunity to 'sneak-a- peek' at SeattleTA research for one month for only $29.
______________________________ Eight months in advance, one eccentric genius predicted the start of history's greatest bull market - accurate to within 17 days and 7 Dow points.
Then, days before his death, he called its end - precisely. Louis Rukeyser called him "uncannily accurate". The Stock Traders Almanac called his work "the finest long-term forecast we have ever seen".
Honored by his peers, admired for his profound knowledge of markets and history, George Lindsay is now nearly forgotten. Much of his significant research has been relegated to yellowing, typed newsletters. Until now... __________________________________________
Fast Forward to 1:40
George Lindsay (1906-1987) began his
life as an artist, owned his own seat on the Chicago Board of Trade from
1939-1940, and started his market advisory service in 1951, one year after the
publication of his seminal paper "An Aid to Timing". While so much of
today's technical analysis is focused on short-term changes in the market (i.e.
daily, 60-minute, 15-minute, 5-minute, and tick charts) and has become heavily
dependent on mathematics that only a Stanford PhD. could ever hope to understand,
Lindsay spent his life looking at multi-year changes in the markets all the way
back to 1798. By doing so, he was able to understand regular, repeating changes
in the market based, not on price but, on time. These "changes" are
similar to cycles but not in the way most people today think of cycles. His
work is unique and had almost disappeared until I began
my endeavor to save it for history with the publication of my first
book in 2011. His approach to the markets appears to transcend even that mirror
of human behavior as it can play a role
in forecasting non-market related events throughout human history (described in his only book "The
Other History" Vantage Press,
1969). It was this "understanding" of intervals in time that enabled
him to sell his seat on the Board of Trade in 1940 only weeks before the
Germans marched into Paris during the spring of that year causing the US
government to impose price controls on commodities and trading volumes at the
exchange to collapse. His book is long out of print but anyone who has
read "The Fourth Turning" (Strauss and Howe, Bantam/Doubleday, 1997)
will have an idea as to the direction Lindsay's research was headed.
Lindsay's Long Cycles are analogous to
what modern investors refer to as secular bull and bear markets as each long
cycle lasts approximately 20 years. A constant question/concern among
investors today is "are we still in the secular bear market that began
with the high in 2000 or did that secular bear conclude with the low in 2009?" Lindsay
is the only analyst to ever create a disciplined methodology for forecasting
the beginning and ending dates of secular cycles and his methods hold the
answer for today's investors.
Most investors' day-to-day decisions
are more concerned with cyclical bull and bear markets than the secular
variety. Lindsay called these cyclical bull and bear markets "basic
advances and basic declines" and to forecast these, too, he developed very
specific, disciplined methods. But in order to forecast these cyclical swings in
equities, using his methods, it is necessary to identify and understand his
Long Cycles. The precision of his models to forecast highs and lows in the
stock market caused Louis Rukeyser to call him "uncannily accurate"
and the Stock Traders’ Almanac to refer
to his work as "the finest long term forecast we have ever
