OK, here's the Bradley Model for the years 2008-10 from Manfred Zimmel.
All of the Bradley Model charts link to his site aminita.at.
I don't as of yet have much experience with aminita.at.
They aren't cheap.
So far it's been an emotional back and forth.
I downloaded their 2009 report after it went free. It was pretty right on.
As was my friend Richard Nolle at astropro.com
The second chart is that of the S&P 500 for 2008.
You will notice that the 2008 Bradley chart catches both the June turning point and the September dive of all things financial.
The 2009 hit pretty close the February turning point, then caught the turn, but flat out missed the accelerating upward drive from July through the end of the year.
Which brings me to the caveat in bright red ink stamped right there on the chart.
The Bradley predicts turning points ONLY and not the polarity, i.e. a high in the chart may also be a low, and vice versa.
I don't like that. C'mon, grow a pair!!!
I do the same thing for each chart, on one I get a frame, the other no. Makes me nutsl!!!
The reason I bring all this up?
Another test for "The Bradley" occurs March 1, 2010 through August 10, 2010
Now you're warned.
As for me, I'm gonna enjoy life over here on the sidelines.
OK, OK I'll admit it.
I'm short a little.
