August 2008 – T Theory® Update

During August I will post weekly Monday morning comments concerning the Daily Short Range T chart as usual. Later in the month I will begin to introduce the long term picture from the prospective of my T Theory 40 Year Cycle concept which I think will bring a unique perspective over the long term that is not recognized by any other conventional concepts.

Update for August 25

The new chart shows a perfectly fine example of a Bear type of time symmetrical (112 days) T, sketched in the S&P plot, which confirms a peak in the S&P a week ago at the black 55 Day Moving Average (MA).

Within T theory, this is sufficient to conclude the next move is down to the green dashed line currently S&P 1224.

Also note the blue momentum oscillator is beginning to weaken, suggesting a top is forming at the 55 Day MA , now at S&P 1296.

No confirmation yet of topping at the 55 Day MA at mid-channel for the S&P. However the market won’t stay on the 55 Day MA for very long; it will either decide to move up to the red dashed line or down to the dashed green line. So we probably need another week to confirm the new Ts status.

Update for August 11

As of last Friday the S&P has risen up to the 55 Day MA, now 1300.

If my forecast of a Bear T scenario is correct we will see this act as resistance to a further advance and in a few days the market will turn down.

If for some reason the more bullish scenario develops the S&P would have to penetrate the 55 Day MA, get above 1300 in a sustainable way, then use the black line as support for corrections.

In any case the difference should become obvious next week.

Update for August 4


The first task for the new month is to see the S&P peak, as it appears to doing, at or near the 55 Day MA currently at 1304. As discussed last week the current T is likely to collapse after a short initial rally thereby allowing the market to decline through its right side. All we need to do over the next two weeks is to observe the expected topping and later resumption of the decline to new lows.

Order the T Theory® Encyclopedia

For a complete understanding of the T Theory® and how to successfully use Terry’s unique methods, order the Encyclopedia from Paula at the above link.  There is additional material in the encyclopedia not covered here.  Paula will be more than happy to answer your questions too.

Many thanks to Paula Burke for her permission to re-post Terry’s old T Theory® explanations.  The period re-blogged on these pages are some of Terry Laundry’s best work and was published here from public domain.


I claim no credit for the material found under T Theory® on this blog.  All of this material is the creation of Terry Laundry and was downloaded from Terry’s free blog site (TypePad).  I have created a mirror of Terry’s original material and now there is a second site containing Terry’s T Theory®.  One or both of these websites hopefully will survive through time as Terry’s material is too important to be lost to the ravages of time.  This site is simply a memorial to his lifetime work.

The page content re-blogged here is exactly as Terry created on his original webpages (saved on my computer with ScrapBook)).  Nothing has been left out from the period Dec 2003 to June 2011.  From Terry’s site, I made a lot of formatting changes, creating a more easily readable webpage appearance.  The PDF chart duplicates of the JPEGs have been omitted for ease and speed of recreating Terry’s pages.  References to PDF charts should be ignored (but no chart was left out).

After June 2011, Terry created a paid subscription website. None of that material is found here.

There were many many, many hours spent on this project; downloading Terry’s individual charts & audio files, followed by the uploading of Terry’s charts and audio to my WordPress blog library, after which I had to insert the uploaded material into my new T Theory® webpages (hopefully in the correct places).  This was a dull and arduous project and I hope you enjoy it.  I don’t believe there remains any more of Terry’s material in free domain, so my T Theory® project is probably finished.  If I’ve missed something, you can leave me a comment.

If you find an uploaded reference error (chart or audio in the wrong place), please note the month and year of the webpage, plus the exact name of the referenced error file.  Include any other info that will help me locate the problem file and where it occurs on the webpage.  Leave a comment for me with the info and I’ll fix it.

Terry’s material is very long and will take many weeks for you to finish.  Don’t hurry, it’s not a marathon and you will absorb more if you go through it at a reasonable rate.  This is especially true for those who don’t invest in the T Theory® reference encyclopedia.  The encyclopedia is a written reference for T Theory® and includes everything of importance for Terry’s T Theory®.  Without the reference encyclopedia you must depend on your memory and Terry’s method carries some rules that you could easily violate.  The encyclopedia also includes new information never seen on his website.

You are welcome to save any or all of my blog material to your computer.  You also have my permission to re-blog my information, but you must (1) credit me and my blog in an obvious manner and (2) don’t change my material.

FYI – I find the best way to save a webpage is using “ScrapBook” (it’s an add-on for the FireFox browser).  ScrapBook saves a webpage to your computer EXACTLY as it appears on the day you saved it.  You can’t tell the difference between the internet webpage and your ScrapBook saved webpage.  The saved pages are not pictures.  Instead the pages consist of HTML and page functionality remains identical on your computer.   There is also a second method for using ScrapBook, where you can save all of the webpages down to a defined link depth.  This optional method means all links will function on your computer to the link depth specified (meaning you can click on links on your saved webpages and tunnel down into pages within pages).  Saving the normal way will only save the top webpage but the links that exist could continue to  function by taking you to the website on the internet instead of on your computer.  But sometimes the linked website doesn’t exist anymore.  I’ve had this happen on some very good webpages with unique information (they just disappear into the internet void).  That’s a bummer when you lost some really good info and thus rose my need for ScrapBook.  You can also filter the pages saved using the optional ScrapBook method, which can exclude all pages not coming directly from the specified website (filtering is recommended using this method otherwise you wind up with a LOT of useless stuff).
