QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong, you have said that the Pi cycle shows up everywhere in finance. I have looked at the charts you posted in the Roman Empire. Has this had a major impact in modern times aside from your Economic Confidence Model?
ANSWER: Of course. Just look at Roosevelt’s 1934 confiscation of gold. Add 31.4 years and you get 1964 — the last year that silver appeared in the coinage. Add another 31.4 years and you come to 1995. That was the historic low in the dollar against the Japanese yen. Britain abandoned the gold standard in 1925. That was the last year they minted gold sovereigns. They resumed 31.4 years later in 1957.
This is but one derivative of time. There are over 40 tests that the computer runs on pi alone. This is why the Forecasting Arrays cannot be reversed engineered because there are 72 independent models that provide the sum of all timing models which includes numerous sub-models within each. The top row, the composite, is the most important as it reflects turning points with the highest and lowest bars. The color changes to indicate direction — blue rising; pink declining.
Panic cycles are outside reversals or big moves in one direction (breakout/collapses), whereas volatility is measured in three primary manners: internal (difference between high/low of trading session), overnight (previous close to open), and general volatility (close to close).
