3 Day Cycle (a.k.a. Taylor Trading Technique)
The Taylor Trading Technique (3 Day Cycle) was invented by George Douglass Taylor back in late 1940’s.
His Technique is a short term, 3 Day Method to trade the inherently choppy nature of the markets. The easiest way to understand Taylor’s “structure” of the Market’s “3 Day Cycle” is to adopt his view that the markets are being driven and manipulated by “Smart Money”.
His core premise was that the market is manipulated in stages which repeat over and over. These stages were manually recorded using his “Book Method”.
In 1950’s eyeballing the “Book” was enough to predict the amplitude of the moves. However in today’s markets and the use of computers, this had to be improved so the “Electronic Trading Book” was the solution, and the “PTG/TTT e-Book”, which also included new developments, was created by Richard Boisvert; Professional Trader / Money Manager.
With the “PTG/TTT e-Book“ we do not only have a better idea of the daily direction of the markets, but also of the possible levels of support and resistance to be achieved.
The “PTG/TTT e-Book“, today’s electronic version of Taylor’s 1950 “Book Method”, shows that even in Bear markets, the “Smart Money” creates a positive 3 Day Rally in over 84% of the cycles.
PTG/TTT e-Book is a source of compiled data for 24 hour and Day Sessions, emailed to you every day after the market closes that includes:
- Projected High and Low
- Odds of achieving Higher Highs and Lower Lows
- Odds of getting a Decline or a Rally
- Odds of having a Positive 3 Day Rally
- If a Rally is forecast and by how much
- If a Decline is forecast, and by how much
- Average Spread / Range for the day
- Odds of making the High or Low – 1st / Last

HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM.
ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK, AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK IN ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR TO ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS.
