New alignments: Euro and Bitcoin. Download the Matrix to judge their strength.
The alignment in the Euro prompts a discussion about the dollar. Remember when the talking heads were telling us the dollar was cooked (bull market was over) after the latest Fed meeting? Bearish calls flooded the market after the Fed said it was done raising rates in 2019, or at least until the dot plots (tea leaves) told them something new. The vociferous bears, shouted the dollar was dead and/or cited technical deterioration. I still remember tweets about the dollar falling below significant moving averages. Oh no! That day marked the short term bottom in the US dollar index. Today, a professional driven rally is nearing breakout of the swing high that few thought would be challenged ever again, let alone in 2019 (See Dollar's Pro/Public Index). I guess my point, is stop listening to the talking heads. Subscribe to the Matrix and follow the invisible hand.

US Dollar Index Pro/Public Index
We've been trying to teach bitcoin traders/investors empowerment for months. Yet, when the computer's output doesn't agree with their monetary revolution, they tune out or worse. I mention this because Bitcoin has entered alignment again. It desperately needs a reset of the weekly trend, but bearish alignment keeps materializing.
BuST & BrST > 0, observations made in the daily, weekly, or monthly time frames, warn investors where upside or downside alignments are pushing against the cycle of time. The computer defines these alignments as Early, Mid, or Late. Late cycle alignments are vulnerable to reversal. A daily BuST or BrST > 2, for example, suggests a growing probability of consolidation ahead even in Early and Mid cycle alignments.
Using the Matrix
The value of the Matrix is far more than a study of price. Trends are a function of price, volume (force), volatility, and TIME. The order of their importance is as follows: (1) TIME, (2) volatility, (3) volume & price alignment. Volume and price alignment, a setup that triggers action, favors Grade A & B, early cycle markets under high compression (↓COM). ↓COM suggests extremely low volatility, a quiet trend ready to explode into high compression (↑EXP). Weekly and monthly breakout signals are not finalized until the end of the week and month, respectively. Signals generated before that could be temporary. Keep this in mind when reading alignment.
Suggested Reading: The Cycle of Accumulation and Distribution (CAD), Leverage Oscillator (LTLO), Diffusion Index (DI), Volatility Bandwidth (BW), Compression (COM), Expansion (EXP), Alignment, Upside Alignment, Downside Alignment, Sentiment Model, Intermarket Trends, VIX Model, Economic Activity Composite, Long Term Cycles.
