How to Incorporate Seasonal Tendencies Into Trading

Seasonal charts are another subordinate tool I like to use in conjunction at times with the Wave Principle to look for opportunities. Seasonals show us historical price tendencies over many years of data. Some markets/stocks are more seasonal than others. One approach I use is to note key turn dates on the seasonal chart for the upcoming year and record them in a spreadsheet. As the year moves on you have a heads up for potential turning points without having to look at the seasonal charts on a daily basis. If I’m counting a completed wave pattern into one of these date windows, it gives me a perceived added edge to a potential trade. Sometimes those perceived edges work out, and sometimes they don’t!
