Letters To S&C by Technical Analysis, Inc.



I read Duane Archer’s article in the December 2010 issue of Stocks & Commodities (“Goodman Wave Theory”) and couldn’t help but notice the similarities between the Goodman wave (Gwt) and AB=CD or Abc pattern. What are the significant differences between them and the advantages of one over the other? I recognize that the Gwt has a number of additional rules whereas the AB=CD pattern boils down to about three or four. I guess I’m wondering why I would go for a more complicated system unless it offers significant trading advantages over one I already use. Could you ask the author for his thoughts?

Author Duane Archer replies:

GWT is both a refinement and expansion of the old 50% measured move [AB=CD] rule. The propagation principle is an expansion allowing the creation of several templates for forecasting. The intersection and 3-C rules are refinements for delimiting possibilities and zeroing in on legitimate trade candidates. These are the three primary principles of Goodman wave theory, but there are quite a few more principles and rules. My article in the December 2010 issue was simply meant as an introduction.

ERRATA: December 2010



I was recently contacted by a reader who had been playing with the settings on the “TradingIndexesWithHullMA” spreadsheet that I contributed to the December 2010 Traders’ Tips column. The reader noticed there were buy and sell plot anomalies when he used settings that caused more frequent trades.

I have found and fixed a problem in the formula controlling the active position (column AE). This necessitated changes to rebalance formulas in other columns in the “One Symbol Trading Model” area of the spreadsheet.
