What is the 3-Day Cycle?

November 5th, 2020

A short-term methodology developed in the 1940s & 1950s by George Douglass Taylor, the 3-day cycle was specifically designed to trade choppy markets.

Taylor logged his observations as he studied large institutional trading activity, or “smart money.” The core premise of the 3-day cycle is that the collective action of the smart money drives prices from extreme lows to extreme highs in rhythmic cyclical stages which repeat over a 3-day period.
