Market Cycle Trends: Mastering Higher Highs and Lower Lows Through Geocosmic Indicators


The language of market cycle trends often uses the phrases “higher highs and lower lows.” To those unfamiliar with the world of finance, these terms might seem strange. In essence, these terms refer to the peak and trough points of a particular market cycle. In this context, we must ask: “what is a higher low?” A higher low refers to the point in a market cycle where the price dips but does not go as low as the previous low point. In other words, the low is higher than the preceding one, hence “higher low.” This concept is instrumental in understanding the intricate patterns that define market behaviors and trends.


Understanding Market Cycle Trends

The rhythmic dance of “higher high and lower low” patterns defines market cycle trends. These terms represent crucial turning points in the markets: a “higher high” is a peak point that is higher than the preceding peak, while a “lower low” refers to a trough that is lower than the previous trough. Recognizing these patterns can provide invaluable insight into the direction a market is likely to take. For example, a series of “higher highs and higher lows” suggests an upward, or bullish, trend.

The principles guiding these patterns, known as “Trend Analysis,” have been key to the success of MMA Cycles. Incorporated after the groundbreaking work of Raymond Merriman, the company recognized the importance of these patterns across various market cycles, including the Economic Cycle, The Business Cycle, The Credit Cycle, and The Property Cycle.

Mastering Higher Highs and Lower Lows

In market trends, understanding the interplay of “higher highs and lower lows” and the contrary patterns of “lower high higher low” and “higher low lower high” is paramount to successful prediction and navigation of market behavior. A “lower high” is a peak point that does not reach the height of the previous peak. It is sometimes also called a “secondary high.” This is a characteristic of market about to reverse from a bullish to a bearish trend. Conversely, a “higher low” is a trough that doesn’t dip as low as the last trough and is sometimes also called a “secondary low.” This is a characteristic of a market reversing from a bearish trend to a bullish one.. These patterns, widely used in MMA Cycles’ strategy, are key to interpreting the potential shifts in market directions.


The Role of Geocosmic Indicators

The revolutionary work of MMA Cycles also brought Geocosmic indicators into the limelight. Initially perceived as esoteric, these indicators, rooted in astronomic phenomena, have proven to be effective tools in predicting market behavior. Raymond Merriman’s work led to the discovery of over 60 correlations between Geocosmic indicators and Gold prices, marking the first major exploration of planetary studies in relation to financial markets.


Geocosmic Indicators and Market Cycle Trends

MMA Cycles’ work has demonstrated the power of Geocosmic indicators in predicting “higher highs and lower lows” in market trends. It has also demonstrated the power of identifying optimal buy and sell signals based on “lower highs and higher lows” during time bands containing certain geocosmic signatures. An analysis of past market trends has consistently shown that these astronomic indicators, combined with the patterns of “higher low lower high” and “lower high higher low”, can provide an impressively accurate forecast of market behavior.



Understanding Market Cycle Trends and the role of Geocosmic indicators has become a pivotal part of modern investment strategies. The success and growth of MMA Cycles underscore the value of mastering these tools and concepts. As we move forward, the prospects of utilizing these methodologies for predicting “higher highs and lower lows” in the markets are promising.
