Currency Chart Up/Down Market Cycles

The response to the last post is that readers want to hear about ALL the different market cycles! So today I start with the first of a series of blog posts on cycles. I’ll be demonstrating with a currency chart, the forex EUR/USD pair, but what I share also applies to futures and stocks.
