T Theory Observations for Sunday  May 23 2010

The T Theory™ Confidence Indicator Turns Bearish Long Term

This topic updates developments in the Confidence Indicator developed for my T Theory™ using the ratio of the Fidelity High Yield Capital and Income Bond fund to the Vanguard Long Term Treasury Bonds. You can find the details in the post for May 2 2010 at the bottom of this page.

In summary it shows the loss of confidence that is characteristic of a new bear market. My  audio commentary is at the link below. A image of the chart is shown below. The key point is that the low quality high yield bond fund is only up 1.4% year to date while the Treasury Bond fund is up 9.6% signally a flight to a quality preference over a higher yield preference.

The Advance-Decline Oscillator not Signaling any Important Low Near Term

My Advance-Decline Oscillator has dropped to an oversold condition that is not consistent with a bull market  and has not yet shown the double bottom or rising bottom pattern that signals  a sustainable recovery. A better quality PDF chart is provided below.

T Theory™ Observations for Sunday May 2 2010  

Sunday’s topics summarizes my comments regarding questions emailed to me and further analysis of the equity market using the Volume Oscillator Chart below and Parker’s interpretation of my  T Theory Confidence Indicator™  that follows.

Alvis says:

Terry, your point is very important in that we need to wait to see where the new short range T’s center post low actually will go.  For it to project the August 26 peak,it will need to go about June 4th.  For that to happen would probably mean a mild osc. break of the Cash Build. Up line into May 20 and then collapse back under it with a low about June 4 and then base out until the June 20 “low”.  I just wanted to share this with you before you did your work for the Sunday review.

Jeffery says;
I am always looking at previous bull markets to see if I can find any type of similarity and stumbled across this yesterday while doing T work trying to figure out strong runs like the one we have been having that keep defying conventional wisdom.

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).
