How To Create a Long Term Forecast Using Composite
a) recommended financial
instruments: Forex and commodity
I choose Forex and commodity because they have the largest continuous data. I don't know how one can effectively do this for stocks which trade mostly 8hrs in a day, if a cycle you are following and its effect is not known for the rest of 12-16hrs, how is the system going to give you reliable forecast ?
b) recommended bar - 1 hour
If you choose EOD data, then you will be largely using larger cycles and they will have margin of error in many days which is good mainly for big institutional investors who look only at a very large trend and give lots of room for things to play and to confirm. Also EOD data, you have only 365 bars in a year so you need so much more data compared to 24* 260 bars for a year for 1hr data. Continuous Intra-day data helps to study the effect of full cycle much better. A retail trader like me or Gabriella trading on a forecast using EOD is not suited or you should have a very different trading plan and tolerance and your evaluation of correctness of forecast should be if trend was right over few weeks or over month, not that today I was expecting UP and it was DOWN.

In autoselection choose one of these options:
The program picks up the astro cycles with positive forecast ability. The first option chooses the cycles that give positive correlation within one period while option employs more restricted criterion for choosing astro cycles.
