Tim Wood has done the work and knows the Dow Theory from A to Z. There are very few people that I can say this about. Richard Russell

Tim,
I’ve been a subscriber now for 3 years.  I have to say you really go out on a limb and present the data as you see it.  I can remember when you said the 8 year high in gold was in with the 2011 high.  I must admit it was a very bold call at the time and a correct one.  I remember this call very well and didn’t want to believe it.  I had recently read articles from Goldman Sachs and Citibank expecting gold to hit $2000 and $2400 in 2012 or 2013.  Of course it never happened.  In 2012 I was long gold futures.  I bought on a brake above $1630.  At that time it appeared gold was off to the races.  I can remember seeing gold get all the way up to $1798 and that was it.  As gold started dropping I began to realize something was wrong.  I remember seeing $1750 and then $1700 and $1650 and then $1625.  Proper risk management forced me exit my long gold position before taking a loss.  I never allow for a winning trade to turn into a losing trade.  I know a thing or two about trading.  I used to be a currency trader for a large multi-national bank.  At some point your DNA markers will come into play and it will be time to short the market.  Were not there yet so I don’t mind being on the sidelines until we get the proper setup.  Keep up the great analysis.
Regards,
Pete M

I can attest -you stood by your stats! Stay unbiased and call them like you see them!

Thanks Capt,

George

Tim:

Nice comments in 2/9 report.

UR da King, baby! (in an humble, sort of way)

I have been singing your praises to our folks up here, so I’m with you…..

Keep it up, good buddy!

Morris

Your analysis has been excellent ! Keep up the good work.

Richard

Congratulations on a great call Tim.  This was not an easy ride, I got short a little too early but didn’t abandon the position and continued to stay the course and wait for the stars to align.

Hi Tim,

I read the latest STU and since you are not going to brag about your calls in 2011; I’m going to. You did some amazing job my friend. No one, absolutely no one I know (and believe me I do some reading) has made such precise calls as you Tim. Your service is absolutely stunning. And it was not a one time event. You have made more amazing calls. And since you like statistics I would say it is statistically important to follow the advice of your service. It is worth every penny of it.

You called it.  While everyone was calling this time “the real deal” you said it was a trap. To go out on a limb and make an intermediate term call contrary to your longer-term view and be bullish, takes more guts than most analsts put together. EXCELLENT job Tim. Your work has proven correct yet again. Keep up the good work…..

Cheers!
Chris

Tim, It was great speaking with you when my subscription was renewed. I’d like to add to the many testimonials on your website …. feel free to use any or all of this to help folks discover what a worthwhile investment it is – not just in dollars but also in terms of the time saved – and – peace of mind in knowing the direction of the markets. Your newsletter has helped me to protect the vast majority of my capital from the market downturn of 2008. I have also made money in other areas that you cover (fully understanding that each of us is responsible for our own investment decisions). You provide fact-based, data-driven analysis that has proven to be correct throughout market history. You’ve accurately predicted major market turns since I became a subscriber 3 years ago. Its absolutely like having a “secret weapon”, compared to the noise that we see in the newspapers or on TV news. Added benefit: I have a standard to measure other investment services by – I have not found anything that compares. Thank you for your great newsletter! Chris F. IT Project Manager

Hi Tim, I am a new subscriber only a few days ago and was astounded at the detail and depth of your work during my intial reading. This is superb and extremely conscientious work- Thank-you! Thanks so much, Mark Bryce

Hi Tim – Just wanted to let you know that as a new subscriber I love your work. Rich Pike

Hi Tim, I signed up for your service for another year. At $300 it is a bargain…….. Thanks for your great data. David Edwards
Tim, No need to respond. Keeping emails to a minimum is a good thing. But I want to say that I am so grateful that you stayed true to your indicators on the last update of April 7th. It paid big dividends today. Boy was this week and last week a real test or what! I subscribe to your analysis and two others. Both of the other two (2) analysts signaled to sell – That this rally was a goner. Finished. Done. I know we are very over bought and things could change tomorrow, but thanks again. Dan

Tim I just want to say that I am delighted with the service. Keep up the good work Cheers, Charles
Hi Tim. Hope all is well. Former subscriber who has returned ! Long story short I used a lot of what i learned from your newsletter to have a very very profitable year in 2008. I am truly grateful for that. However, I miss trading and have decided to “try my luck” again. No better resource then your newsletter. Thanks !!! Gabe

Tim: Your service is not only worthy of the price, it is invaluable. As far as I know it is in a class by itself. If anybody hassles you about the price, they do not appreciate what you provide, and trying to please them will not work. Have a great weekend! Diego M. Rodriguez.
Tim..I just read your February research letter and I was moved to write you a note , thanking you for your valuable and sincere efforts..I think you have been and are helping many people navigate these perilous financial times. No matter how out of sync with popular opinion it may be..I’ve never personally met you , but I regard you as a friend who cares..Thanks again and best wishes , Dan Barry.
Tim: Your work is excellent, no one saw this coming as clearly as you, hope you have not made too much money and decide to retire. Tom Excellent service you have. Happy Holidays, Bob

Dear Mr. wood I saw you give the green light on silver other day I brought a silver stock just playing around. Friday it did a 30% gain in one day I never experience nothing like that before thank you leon

DEAR . MR TIM WOOD Man I love your website and the up dates, I miss the down move in commodities I WISH I WOULD HAVE SUBCRIBE YEARS AGO THANK YOU LEON

Tim, You are good. You are my hero. Thanks, Rudy

Tim, I have read your latest monthly report at least twice now and it is an excellent piece of work. Your ongoing analysis has been enormously helpful to me. I keep your monthly reports open for weeks in order to refer to them and compare them to the weekly reports so I can continue to upgrade my own forecast and make plans for my trading. As you know, I read everything that looks promising and your reports stand alone for accuracy. Orville
Tim, just downloaded my first issue, even printed the beginners section for reference. at first i was skeptical, but am quite impressed with your technique, and a 3times a week update, where do you get the time. your cycle work combined with oscilators is fantastic and it takes the emotion out of it. i’m sure this is going to be a good year for me. your timing models are clear and concise. no reply necessary, your to busy. thanx again Ray McCloskey
Tim, Just a short note to say how impressed I have been with your analysis since I started receiving it. All your hard work researching the statistics have paid off and the market appears to be following where you expected it to go. I also enjoy listening to your weekly discussions with John and Tony which provide an invaluable insight into the stock market and other sectors, particularly commodities. There are so many subscription services which try to assist and call the market which tend to only loose you money so it is great to come across yours which is based on fact and good analysis. Keep up the good work and I hope you have been managing to prosper from this excellent analysis. Kind regards, Grant.
Tim, I subscribed to the newsletter last week and I am very impressed by both the quality and detail of the data. The quantitative signposts really help put things in perspective. …… Well worth the $. Thanks, Jason Regehr Director of Finance

TIM; I HAVE FOLLOWED MANY ADVISORS OVER THE YEARS. MY MOST RECENT WAS THE LATE JERRY FAVORS UNTIL I DISCOVERED YOU. TIM, YOUR SYSTEM IS UNBELIEVABLE. THE THINGS AND THE WAYS THAT YOU HAVE DEVELOPED SUCH AS THE CTI AND YOUR VERSION OF OTHER INDICATORS IS NO LESS THAN UNBELIEVABLE. YOU HAVE CHARTED ME THROUGH TUMULTUOS WATERS WITH MY INVESTMENTS AND DANG…WHAT A SYSTEM YOU HAVE. BY THE WAY, I AM RUNNING FOR THE STATE SENATE IN NORTH CAROLINA. ONCE I GET THE ELECTION OVER WITH I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOU COME TO NORTH CAROLINA AND DO SOME FISHING (YOU HAD TOLD ME EARLIER THAT YOU WERE NOT INTO GOLFING) AND THIS WOULD BE AS MY GUEST. AGAIN, TIM, THANKS FOR SPENDING THE HOURS, DAYS AND MONTHS DEVELOPING THAT GREAT SYSTEM YOU HAVE. SHOULD YOU EVER DECIDE TO TAKE YOUR SERVICE TO A WIDER AUDIENCE, I WOULD LIKE TO BE AN INVESTOR. THANKS, BILL

No money in I did buy gold on friday and sold on monday. Excellent job Tim. Nailed it baby! I could have made more but didn’t lose and made money today. One of the few. Great job. Without you I would have been exposed to gold/slv too long as well as not been ready for this crisis. Unbelievable. Well as you suggested we have dropped below July lows. Remember that signals the opportunity for a great depression show down now. I suggest an emergency interview to update your readers. Its also a time for you guys to tell everyone I told you so. P.S. That being said. Its really a sad day. We all will be impacted for years to come. However, for the prudent I hope we get rewarded for making the right moves. We will see. Flynn

Tim, Thank you for the website and the weekly audio interviews as well. I have learned the basics of Dow theory through the site and it has given me an added level of insight into the financial markets. Your site is unique in it’s data based perspective and it helps cut through the noise. Keep up the good work and thanks for the information edge! Jason Regehr Director of Finance

Dear Tim: Thank you the amazing work that you do. Throughout this historic time, I can always count on your sage analysis. I upgraded my paypal account and hope this will correct the expired card. Your loyal subscriber, Steven Tilles Great calls on the commodities and USD. Disciplined and “emotionless” technical analysis. Lai Chee Commodities-excellent call!!!! Sam

Tim, I am a new subscriber as of yesterday. I have been following your commentary on the Market Oracle website and listening to your weekly web commentary as well for the last several months. I finally decided I needed your news letter and access to your weekly commentary. I must say that I am quite pleased I signed up. Cheers, Ed

Your indicators have always been excellent and your reports have gotten better and better. You do really useful work for investors. Orville

Tim, you got a fan here………i am going to continue my subscription for a long long time to come…….keep up the good work………..best regards, simbeow cheo

Hi Tim, I am not going to renew my subcription because I am needing to cut back in every area and I wanted you to know that there is no problem with you or your work. You do an outstanding job !! Thanks, Ken

Tim, AWESOME IS THE WORD I want to use to describe your work! You put in alot of effort and I really appreciate that. Your fee of 250.00 is a bargain and I would at my own demise raise your rates. I know that finally I have found what I have been searching for all these years. Someone with the backbone and fortitude to stand on his own convictions when the tough gets going. I know I will be making good money with your service. Very impressed Cheers, Don

TIM GREAT TALKING TO YOU TODAY. I AM AN ADMIRER OF YOUR SYSTEM WHICH IS THE BEST OF THE BEST. I HAVE SUBSCRIBED TO SO MANY SERVICES OVER THE YEARS. EACH PROFESSES TO HAVE A SYSTEM. THE TIM WOOD SYSTEM, WITH HIS PROPRIETARY CYCLE TURN INDICATOR, HAS DEVELOPED INTO A SYSTEM THAT GIVES SHORT TERM, INTERMEDIATE TERM AND LONG TERM PREDICTIONS FOR MARKET TRENDS THAT CAN BE VERIFIED AND SUBSTANTIATED BY HIS HIS UPDATES AND MONTHLY NEWSLETTERS. TIM, YOUR SYSTEM IS THE BIGGEST BARGAIN ON THE STREET. I WILL HAPPILY SEND YOU AN ADDITIONAL $250 IN ORDER TO KEEP RECEIVING YOUR VALUABLE INFORMATION. I HAVE SEVERAL MILLION AT RISK IN THE MARKET. INSTEAD OF BEING DECIMATED…I HAVE PROFITED BY BEING SHORT THE MARKET BECAUSE YOUR SYSTEM GUIDED ME IN THAT DIRECTION. Bill B.

Tim, I wanted to thank you for taking the time to explain Cycle Theory and Dow Theory in terms that I can understand and apply. Your work is fantastic, and anyone who is serious about technical research should use your service. Thanks for answering all my calls during your busy schedule. I can’t thank you enough!!!!!!!!!!! Tim F. Senior-Vice President Wachovia Securities

Hi Tim, I subscribe to your newsletter and follow your articles. Your’s is the only analysis I find valuable enough to pay for. Keep up the good work, Doug

Hey Tim, didn’t have time to read your recent newsletter until now, am going through it and decided to take a quick break and tell you it’s GREAT, a real clear explanation in the Dow Theory portion is really helping me understand that better. Sure appreciate your work! Tiane

Tim, Thanks! This would have been the worst time not to have your work in hand. You do an incredible job. Take care, Richard

Tim, I would just like to say thank you for the consistent work you have done. Thanks, Ron

Tim,We have discussed the strangeness of ** before. While there are certainly cylces in life, economics and in the universe, I don’t think ** describes any of them with any consistency.I have followed ** word for word on their web site with my own subscription for a year and they change their minds quite often on what is going on in the stock market.In fact on their updates during the week, you really cannot consistently invest on their analysis because their words are many times vague and they change a lot from Monday to Friday on whether we are going down or going up. On the other hand, your work, I can invest on, as you have a consistent mathematical approach to up and down and you don’t cover your analyses with weasel words. Best regards, Bob B.

Tim, Continued great work! I started subscribing when the ** stuff I was reading was too ambiguous and led me into some trading errors. Your work helped me get a better picture of the market and I really appreciate that. Especially the recent discussions, and rather than “buying” the market I held back but also took a few put options, which definitely paid off of course the last several days. Overall, between your cycle work and the ** stuff I’m reviewing from several different sources, I would gather we’re in for not only a cycle low but also a change of trend direction for the equity markets for some time. We’ll see. Your will will help keep me thinking in terms of sticking to the intermediate trend which is most helpful. All the best, Tiane

Dear Tim Thanks very much for your quick reply! Reading your August newsletter and latest short-term updates was very helpful for me this morning in deciding whether to stay short a Dow e-mini or not. All the best, Peter

TIM; YOU HAVE THE BEST INSIGHT AND ARE THE MOST KNOWLEDGED WRITER AND PROFESSOR THAT I SUBSCRIBE TO. I REALLY LIKE THAT YOU STICK TO THE NUMBERS AND ARE NOT PERSUADED BY SENTIMENT. YOUR UNBIASED EDUCATIONAL APPROACH IS VERY INVIGORATING. THANKS, BILL

Tim …….. By the way, you do a great job on the newsletter, and I rely heavily on the CTI as a trading tool for oil and currencies. I also use your big picture analysis to help stay on the right side of broader trends. Mike

Wow Tim…I had no idea of the degree you are a market sage…I have lived a bit of time and have heard my share of presentations…Although my field is totally different from yours, I am still able to identify an honest grounded expert….Thanks for the presentation…I have so much less fear of the markets knowing your depth of understanding….I am utterly shocked…This brought your writings alive for me…Also, the long term view was something I had no idea you where focused on….Thank you so much for sharing your thinking like this… Sincerely, Larry R.

Tim, Your presentation was outstanding!!!!!!!! Regards, Dan B.

Thank you for the weekly “update” via slideshow/mp3. It was awesome and really helped me understand some things I was struggling with. I would definitely welcome more of these types of updates from you. Thanks again, Brad G.

Hi Tim, I am a subscriber of yours based in the UK and faithfully follow your daily and weekly signals on the Dow and Gold. Despite being nervous about it I forced myself to go long on the Dow back in mid-July when your trend indicator on the daily charts went positive. I’m glad I did! Barry J.

Tim, I’m a very recent subscriber, and I must tell you I’m fascinated with what I find. Suddenly I can’t read enough about your methods. As usual, I’ve tried a few other newsletter subscriptions, but they never really work out like you planned, you know? However from what I’m learning from your work, I feel I’ve found something that was made for me and my own investment style. Sincerely, John R

Dear Tim, I have been a subscriber for a couple of months now. I think your approach to TA is strong and innovative – combining cycles and Dow theory. What I like most however is your integrity. You follow your signals. You do not let current sentiment sway your opinion. Just wanted to let you know that I appreciate your efforts. Regards, George

Tim, Congratulations on your great call on this confusing market!! Tom

TIM; IN THAT I AM ONE OF YOUR NEWER SUBCRIBERS, I REALLY APPRECIATE THE LEAD-IN THAT YOU PRESENTED IN YOUR LATEST REPORT. IT IS GETTING CLEARER TO ME THAT YOU PLAY BY A HARD SET OF RULES THAT ARE TIME PROVEN AND UNTIL EVERYTHING IS LINED UP PROPERLY IT IS NECESSARY TO LET THE MARKET TELL US WHAT IT IS GOING TO DO. I SUBSCRIBE TO A NUMBER OF SERVICES, BUT NONE EVEN REMOTELY TOUCH THE INSIGHT THAT YOU BRING FORTH. THANKS, BILL

Thank you Mr. Wood, This morning I initiated a short position on the Naz 100 based on your update. Already up a few grand. Feeling pretty darn good about your service!!! Thanks, Chris

Tim Thanks for the info. So far I am very impressed by the work that you are doing and you have made me a believer. I wish I had known about your work earlier but better late than never. Count on me to be a long term subscriber! Thanks, Robert H.

Tim, I enjoyed your work on the 21st CenturyAlert site and they have removed you from their site. I think people were lazy and didn’t want to work too hard at deciphering the markets. I depend on your work. I’m a grandma trying to really understand the markets and trying to make profits to help my husband to retire. I have to understand how the markets work and that is especially true when you have to conserve capital to keep working in the markets (if that makes sense). Your work is really good and I could go on about it but it looks your other testimonials beat me to it. Thanks for your work. Sandy H

Tim, I must admit that you are one of the best tech guys I have seen since 1979. But have you ever stopped to wonder whether or not you are doing the homework for the boys on the Street? Have you ever wondered if they read your work and juice the futures in the opposite direction of your direction? Sometimes I think it’s best just to shut up and see how they do without your guidance. In other words…keep it private for a while and don’t clue the bastards in on which way the Dow is supposed to go and play both ends against the middle. Alan N.

As a new subscriber, I find your work to be very interesting and helpful. You certainly have a subscriber for life. Thanks a million Eric

Great call on the latest market move!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Aside from that ,great job in analyzing the markets. With the world markets falling like dominoes lately I wonder if the cycle low will be much sooner . Tom B

Keep up good the good work!! Thanks Robert

BTW, congratulations on your astonishing work, maybe I am repeating myself but I never thought study of cycles could be of such help on the investment arena 🙂 …… Anyway, thanks for your help and keep your great work! Best wishes, Jorge

Hi Tim! I have your update this morning. EXCELLENT! The picture is very clear. I think few see this coming. Thank you for your efforts and your scholarly work! Blessings to you from Harald

TIM (NEW MEMBER) I REALLY LIKE YOUR SITE IT JUST WHAT I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR, SOMEONE WITH THE BIG PICTURE AND SHORT TERM OUTLOOK ITS GREAT! WHY DONT MORE PEOPLE USE THE DOW THEORY AND YOUR THEORY, THEY SEEM GREAT? Cook

Tim, Thank you for your work in the recent joint essay .. Please also thank Robert.. This piece is excellent and thats why I ,and many others Im sure, printed it for our libraries and future reference. Your explanations both here and on Financial Sense designate you as the Standard Bearer for Dow Theory . You may want to , at a future date , re-name this analysis … the DOW FACT…as the theory will have been proven once more.. Thanks again, Best Regards, Frank Mc

Tim, I think that one of things that makes your newsletter outstanding is your disciplined adherence to analytical methodology. This gives me confidence in the parameters you publish. Your work is outstanding because you do not make unsupported assertions. Consequently, having something real to say makes your presentation job easier. All you need to do is eliminate everything except the essential data, the heart of your work. In matters of presentation, less is always more. Dave C.

Your analysis is amazing and even more so considering these highly unusual times. Just don’t quit on us, there is no one else out there. Orville

Hi Tim! Just enjoying the markets today. Hope you are too! Lets see, a big break in the CRB, OIL, GOLD, SILVER, COPPER, etc. And of course, a big RISE in the DOLLAR! Nobody expected that, huh?! Congratulations on a job well done! I hope the Gold Bugs don’t complain too much! Best from Harald

Tim, …Appreciate your thoughts as a cyclist? Please keep up the good work and as a new subscriber going short recently in line with your daily comments has already paid for my subscription 50 times over! …. Regards Garry

Dear Sir, I don’t have any question. I just want to tell you that I think you’re doing an excellent job! I’m in the business for almost 20 years. I know there’s no holy grail. Forecasting is difficult and I do not expect you to be right all the time. While your investment letter is not especially easy to read with all those cycles of different lengths working at the same time, your recommendations are usually crystal clear: I know if you’re bullish or bearish and I know that you’re not afraid to change gear if the market tells you to do so. This is very important in my opinion because most people try to defend their opinions for too long despite evidence that they’re wrong. What I also like in your letter is that it is 100% technical analysis. There no ‘BS’ about the latest Fed speech or statistic du jour. By the way, it is always a pleasure to listen to you every weekend at the Financial News Hour with Jim Puplava. I will renew my subscription for sure. Keep up the great work! Best regards. Harald Switzerland

Tim, I wanted to thank you for your time to help me with my questions today. I am very interested in and fascinated by DOW Theory and your newsletter and other writings on the subject. I have read many newsletters in my 10 plus years of being interested in the subject of financial matters as it relates to the stock market. Your information makes the most sense to me and has proven to be the most accurate and reliable forecasting method that I have seen. Keep up the good work. Chuck B.

Tim, I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with your service. You have saved me and my mother (whose money I also manage) thousands and thousands of dollars! And your detailed accurate analysis helped me pull the trigger on selling short Apple. I had been watching AAPL for months with the intention of shorting it but your daily comments on the market in general helped me decide to finally take a position. I am delighted to say I am short 2000 shares at an average of 43.30 and am already sitting on nearly 16 grand of profits. Keep up the good work! Regards, Lewis

Tim, Just a brief note to say that I think the last few days of commentary on the members only website (mid-April) have been absolutely bloody marvelous. Full marks – keep up this very good work – you are making me a truck load of cash! I follow Richard Russell as well but your service is truly excellent in helping to not only appreciate the big picture but also with the timing of trades – which is everything really. I had for example a large holding of gold shares which has been reduced to virtually nil just before the big recent falls – the saving on that has paid for your subscription many times over. Very best wishes from a British fan. Barry Crewe Cheshire UK

Tim, One word about you’re subscriber-only website. DYNAMITE!!! I’m a broker and find your info to be some of the best I’ve found. I have been trading for over 10 years and find you to be one of the few honest people out there… Thanks for telling like it is… Great job and keep up the good work… Best wishes, Nick Santiago

I am 100% with you. In all of my years trading I have never felt as confident as I have since subscribing to your service. I’ll take them going up or down now that I have you and your indicators. I just hope that you stay in business for a couple of years, because if you do, my family will be set forever. Your entire service is amazing. As I have said several times, it is magic and predictive. It shows when to be bold and when to look for a turn, when to press them and when to change directions. I have never seen anything like it. However, I think I know the problem with building a service, by anyone, but yours in particular; 1) 90% of the folks out there are main stream and everything we do is counter to that. 2) 90% have lost a bunch of money and don’t believe it can be done, so they gravitate toward what is comfortable that suits them and their mainstream thinking. 3) Your service attracts and requires a certain amount of sophistication. The average investor wants to be told to buy GE or XOM because gas is going up. You deal in mutual funds that they know nothing about and don’t understand. 4) However, if you get a subscriber with too much sophistication, they are probably writing their own letter and your stuff scares them to death because they know it works and theirs does not. 5) In my case, I don’t care. I have been doing this so long and only have one goal in mind and that is making money. I would subscribe to a service that makes it’s recommendations by pitching pennies against a wall, if it were predictive of the stock market. I am perfectly happy to pay you to develop and report on the indicators while I add my own spin and experience to your work and comments. I have no pride or ambition other than to grow my account. I can see that the market is currently ripe for a turn and it is oversold as measured by many parameters and I am looking for signs of a turn. However, your indicators provide me with the signs that I need which will tell me that a turn either is or is not being made. This is why I think your work is magic. If a person, any person would just move their account over to RYDEX and blindly follow your lead and add nothing to what you are doing, it looks to me like he would make money consistently over time in most any market I can conceive of ( except a sideways trading range and those are simply pauses between trends ) There is nothing else out there that can do that. And if there is, I don’t need it because I have you. And that is why I think your work is amazing. Just don’t quit, I need to do this for at least one more year. O.C. ……Allow me to add that I am very impressed by your work. I am particularly fond of your humility before the vagarities that the market can convolute short to intermediate term, while at the same time you do hold with confidence to longer term interpretations. You give more value per dollar than anyone else I have ever subscribed to (as a trader with 10 years experience I have seen more than a few I can assure you), and quite frankly you are under priced! Thank You, Ran

Tim, You are going to be a giant in this business. Over the years, I have subscribed to many reporters and analysts. If I can buy good thinking for a few hundred dollars a year then it is worth while and a valuable use of my money, because I do this for a living. Currently I am subscribing to ***, ***, yourself and ***. I also look at ***’s work periodically. Then I have two chart services that seem to be helpful to me and I have developed several friends in the business that I share information with. However, I have dropped two services these past two weeks because of the work that you do. If I had to only have two services ( plus my charts ) I would take yours and ***. The wave helps me know about where I am in a series and helps me plan ahead, but these cycles you have developed seem to be magic. The thing I like about them most is that they are mechanical and are not dependent on conjecture, hope or hype. Furthermore, they are not subject to opinion and subjectivity. I think it is very valuable for us to have your opinion about where you think things are going based on your interpretation of the indicators and I think that eight times out of ten your familiarity with what the indicators are saying gives us all an edge. But I also notice that during the few times when you have guessed wrong, that you default back to the indicators, which I think is excellent. I hope that you will always find room for me in your group (particularly after you are rich and famous) and if I can ever do anything for you that you will let me know. Orville

Tim, In case none of the subscribers have told you, your work just keeps getting better and better…your recent addition of the A/D Trading Cycle Indicator and your Volume Indicator are HUGE assets to your work….it really gives me (us) confidence in the cycle turns. THANK YOU SO MUCH!! Just thought I’d let you hear from a very happy subscriber. Tim

Tim, WOW! Your discussion of the weekly trend indicator and its correlation with divergences is very exciting . Thanks for revealing these tools to us and I look forward to watching and profiting as these patterns play out. Your daily updates are very much appreciated. Thanks Again, Ray

Hi Tim Thanks for your Dec and Jan newsletters. They are very thorough and very enlightening. You make a good case for your outlook in the stock market and the Gold market. Your cycle discussion on Gold has made me a believer….. Your work is the best I have seen. You provide facts and data. Most everyone else presents opinions and wishful thinking…..Just a final thought. It is obvious you put a lot of effort in your work and it shows. Lindsay was also a workaholic. Best of luck Ed

Tim, Just read today’s update. I just want to extend my thanks and gratitude to you for all your hard work, not to mention for the money you have helped me make. Dollar for dollar, your service is the best I have ever subscribed to. Hope all is well in beautiful Gulf Shores. Best regards, Bill

Great job Tim, I really enjoyed your recent slide presentation on Bull and Bear markets. I it stayed up till midnight to listen to it. You know when you really step back from the week to week noise you can begin to see and put into perspective the movement of the market. This really helps me a lot. My problem is probably the same as many others in that we as human beings don’t see these patterns because of the large time frames involved. As an investor I keep finding myself only thinking three to six months ahead not three to six years which from what I see in your work would be much more profitable…… Thanks again for all your great work and good luck with your move remember lift with your legs… Best Regards Les

Tim, I just watched your latest presentation. Outstanding. It really does put the market in perspective especially reviewing the patterns in the last great bear market. It helps me relax and understand the nature of these rallies…the way the market naturally unfolds. I was growing impatient and, as you know from our conversation, doubting the direction but now it makes sense. Thanks again, Tom

Tim, I wanted to thank you for the excellent audio, cycles presentation. It was extremely educational and thoroughly enjoyable. I am going to show it to my long suffering wife so that she can better understand what I have been preaching for the past 18 months, regarding the nature and longevity of this bear market. Again, thank you for all your hard work and for taking the time to share it with your subscribers. We are wiser and better prepared because of it. Regards Al

Tim. I listened to your Big Picture presentation on the Dow and Gold and it was great. Going through the history of the 4 year cycle over that long period of time has really helped put the market in perspective for me. Thanks for taking the time to make the audio to go with the charts. The two combined is much better than reading a document without a narrative. Thanks again. Cheers, Denis

Some feedback for you. I signed up in January this year and have enjoyed reading your work. This cycle business takes a while to get into but its worth the effort. I use Vantagepoint software to assess the markets from day to day but use your work for confirmation and timing of the longer term trades. Keep up the good work – especially the commentary during each month. Regards, Barry from the UK

Tim: FYI, Just listened to your two recent interviews and they are excellent. It really helped a great deal and I think these features are wonderful on the website and help your subscribers to understand your information I know they did me…keep it up! Its an excellent way to go. I also see why these daily updates are so very important..to think I had been missing out. They are a daily stop for me now each day. Thanks a lot Tim for the value added. Doris

YOUR DOING A GREAT JOB, INTERESTING, FUN, EVEN MAKING MONEY KEEP IT UP. GREAT WORK. THANKS AGAIN, RGDS THE BELLMAN WESTLAKE VILLAGE,CA

Tim, You made me some nice money this week. Montana Huckleberry and Chocolates will be on their way. Bill

Tim Since this is my first time corresponding, I’d like to say thanks for all your hard work. Your analysis has really opened my eyes to a new way of viewing the market. Cycles work makes perfect sense to me (possibly due to my engineering background), and it has really helped me maintain some degree of sanity during this crazy market. And if the 3-Peaks / Domed House pattern plays out…. you’ll be well deserving of all congrats on the early call and warning. Sincerely, Ted

Outstanding work, Tim. I have been maintaining this rally is the end of a complex A-B-C wave 2 correction, and it fits nicely within the context of your excellent cycle work. Thank you for sharing. Michael

Tim, WOW! WHAT A PIECE OF WORK. I LOVE THE DETAIL AND SUPPORTING DOW AND CYCLE WORK. KEEK UP THE GREAT WORK AND THE DAILY COMMENTS! REGARDS,

Dear Mr. Wood, I have been a subscriber of your newsletter for just a few months. I became aware of your “Cycles News & Views” through my association with Richard Russell’s “Dow Theory Letters” and your weekly radio talk on the Financial Sense Online. I have relied on the Dow Theory over the years, but in simpler terms. In the last few years I’ve come to rely on more variables when investing or speculating, because to act on the advice of Wall Street analysts and the media is a sure fire way to become broke. My desire to understand why the market is moving in a certain direction only to reverse course is the reason I am a subscriber of your newsletter. Listening to Wall Street jargon for the reasons of an advance or decline does not suffice. When I received my first issue of the newsletter I read it through browsing for simple answers to my then concerns as to how the market was behaving. I thought, this is too technical-where are the answers? I proceeded to reread the issue again, and again, and not until the fourth reading did I develop a comprehensive understanding of the technical analysis you were outlining of the Dow Theory. Shortly after, I reviewed your site on the web and came across your studies of the works of Hamilton & Rhea. I commented to friends and associates as to how I was consumed with this avalanche of intriguing information. My desire to further my education of the Dow Theory, I attribute to you. Reading your newsletters and updates has become quite easy for me now. I have become accustomed to the language you speak and the charts are an excellent visual. I can read and understand your points readily now. My advice to anyone contemplating a subscription to your newsletter is to reserve the time to read and comprehend the data initially. Your efforts to simplify the somewhat difficult analysis of any current market situation is unheralded in my opinion. I have witnessed how you continue to explain and teach your readers. Your timely alerts are just that. Your reminders of current setups are beneficial. In today’s investment climate it pays to have “bags of tools”. My three bags are labeled Fundamental, Technical and Psychological. When analyzing the Dow, S&P, Gold, Dollar & Bonds your studies are foremost technically. I feel rewarded to have connected with you and the services you provide. Respectfully, Peter T Adams

Tim, I am a new subscriber, but I have read your contributions to F S O , and, hence, have a certain familiarity with your work. Just wanted to encourage you that your concern and considerateness in how you relate to your readership is palpable, and is appreciated, – (not to mention your competence, also!). Lawrence

I’d like to start off by expressing how grateful I am to have found THE Tim Wood. Tim is a market historian whose dedication is unparalleled. He’s passionate about his endeavors and is one of the very few whose living his purpose. Tim’s approach to the markets by combining Dow Theory and Cycles makes his accuracy at forecasting uncanny. As a result, (one doesn’t experience the emotional lows that would ordinarily be associated in following other forms of market forecasting) one doesn’t jump in and out of numerous positions based upon the minutte swings in the market. The call to action is spoken loudly by the markets and Tim is the Ambassador relaying its message. Tim’s most recent call on Gold hit dead center of the bulls eye. He again let the markets tell him which way Gold was headed. His call was made while others were still reiterating their bullish postures. Having just read Tim’s “Bear Market Report” on where the markets currently sit, I was floored in seeing this reoccurring pattern on a grand scale. Tim, (the very near future will reveal as to whether) you very well could have played a vital role in saving me, my family and friends from financial destitution. For that I’m eternally grateful. Respectfully, Bob Chandler

Hi, Tim: Thanks for the articles. I am very curious to get to know some of the best minds on Wall Street, and George Lindsay is certainly one of the great minds. I will spend quite some time to study your paper on this interesting Three Peaks and Domed House pattern. I look forward to learning more from you. Cheers Jing

Hi Tim. Whenever I see an e-mail from you I open it right away. Your analysis and views are a pleasure to read and profit from. Keep up the great work. Cheers, Denis. (PS: Your comments on your web site are well appreciated to.)

Dear Tim: I am writing to thank you not only for your advice in navigating this challenging market, but also for the education you continue to provide in your thorough newsletter. I never appreciated the necessity to incorporate cyclical analysis with technical analysis to plan my trading strategy, until I began my subscription to your service. Your newsletter has dramatically helped me avoid pitfalls, and to disregard the disingenuous commentary in the financial news media. I also greatly appreciate the personal attention you provide your subscribers, should the need arise. My only regret is not having your guidance earlier in my life. Thanks again for a great newsletter and your service. Best Regards, Howard

Tim, Another work of art-I will do some studying tonight and tomorrow. I appreciate your even handed approach to the markets-you don’t carry a torch for either the bears or bulls-you analytically take the markets apart and analyze them just as a physician interprets lab results to determine if the patient is healthy or ill (bull or bear). Thanks for the hard work that you put into your monthly letters as well as your timely insights to the markets as they change. The next few years ahead will be challenging economically, socially and politically as our economy tries to right itself from the huge burdens of debt and international uphevals, and maintaining at least a moderately healthy financial portfolio will take insight beyond the daily reckonings of the mainstream media, which is why I appreciate a sane approach to investments, news, politics, society and religion. Your logical approach to the markets, learning from the lessons of market history and tempered with current studies to refine the timing is a wonderful approach. W. Byrd

Dear Tim, Have finished reading your January issue of Cycle News & Views ( but only for the first time!). To say it made interesting reading is putting it mildly. I don’t know your background but can only guess that you have spent years in study and research and as far as I am concerned it has definitely paid off. The monthly letter you write is one of the best I have ever come across and believe me I have taken a close look at quite a few. The truly excellent ones I can count on one hand and in my opinion you certainly count as one of those. The results of your research, as laid out in your monthly letter are extremely well presented, in a detailed yet still ‘punchy’ format and best of all you are willing to state a clear view on where you see things going next. Long may you continue. With thanks and regards, Chris

Tim: Its been a great experience and learning process to read you newsletter and your updates (I just got my subscription a month or so ago). Though I am just an amateur in stock market issues and my opinion might not be worth a second of your time, I just have to express that I find your studies to be the result of a very professional effort. To follow your advise or not, should be a personal decision, but you are providing us with very solid grounds to consider our next steps (your advise on gold a couple of weeks ago was remarkably accurate!). Thank you for your efforts. Best regards, Javier
