May apat na cycle ang merkado. Accumulation Phase. Mark-Up Phase. Distribution Phase. Mark-Down Phase.
A market cycle can range anywhere from a few minutes to many years, depending on the market in question. Since cycle siya so nauulit lang. Una accumulation kung saan mga traders especially insti traders nag aaccumulate ng stocks kasunod nito kapag napansin ng iilan na hindi na bumababa ang prices at unti unti nagstable ay magbibilihan sila kaya tataas ang price papasok na sa second stage which is mark up stage kung saan nagkakaroon ng mga higher lows at higher highs.
Dito na stage lahat masaya. Lahat ng sentiments positive. After some time na pagtaas ay hihinto na ito. Ang dating optimism sa mark up stage nahalu.an na ng doubt. Dito halos nagbebentahan ang mga bumili noon sa accumulation stage kaya kahit anong dami ng buyers hindi na tumataas kasi nagdidispose na ng shares ang mga nag accumulate. Tawag sa stage na to is Distribution stage.
After ng distribution phase is yung Mark Down phase kung saan dahil narealize na ng karamihan na hindi na tumataas ang price at nadadaig na halos ng sellers ang buyers ay magbebentahan na kaya yung result is babagsak ang price ng isang stock.
After bumagsak ng price darating na naman ang point kung saan mag aaccumulate na naman ang mga traders dahil mura na sa tingin nila ang price especially insti traders. Accumulation stage na naman ulit. So paulit ulit lang.
Stages can last a month or a year or even a decade. If you want more information about market cycles e search ninyo lang sa internet at maraming articles about it.
Here is the emotional cycle of traders while market cycle is happening.
Then there is the cycle of market emojis which a lot of you will nod your head and say you can relate to this.
If you think about it, IT IS SO EASY TO EARN if you know the market cycle. All you need to do is wait until the stock is in the beginning of Mark Up Stage and start buying or better yet buy on Accumulation Stage and sell on Distribution Stage. WOW! Billion Peso idea!
Well, not really. You can’t really time the market. It’s easy to say “I could have bought here and sold here” if you are looking at the history of the stock pero if nasa kasalukuyan ka hindi mo alam kung anong stage ng cycle ang kasalukuyan mo na kinabibilangan. Let us look at this example.
If you don’t know how to read a chart kindly read this blog post first before proceeding.
Mula November 2016 until December 2019 ay dumaan si JFC sa apat na cycle. Let us focus on Accumulation Stage since kunyare gusto natin timing si JFC. Our Billion peso idea, remember?
So papasukin natin ang Accumulation Stage. Sasabayan natin ang mga insti bumili.
E zoom in natin.
E zoom out natin ulit.
We can conclude that our Billion Peso idea won’t work.
Hmmmm? Bakit wala gumawa ng indicator na kayang makita kapag may nag aacumulate or may nagdidistribute?
Meron. The indicator is called Accumulation/Distribution Indicator. Accumulation/distribution is a cumulative indicator that uses volume and price to assess whether a stock is being accumulated or distributed. Ito sya.
This is how it looks if e plot mo sa chart.
May apat na general idea when looking at Accumulation/Distribution indicator (A/D). Una, Kapag tumataas ang price at pataas din ang A/D ibig sabihin confirmed na ang trend is going up. Balikan natin, apat ang market cycle. Accumulation, Mark Up, Distribution at Mark Down. Nauulit lang ng nauulit yan.
After ng Mark Down mag Accumulation ulit. This can range from months to years. Ang galaw ng isang stock ay may tatlong direction. Uptrend, Downtrend at Ranging. Kapag paakyat tawag dun is Uptrend. Kapag pabagsak naman tawag dun is downtrend. Kapag naman walang masyadog galaw tawag dun is Ranging.
Si Accumulation Stage at si Distribution Stage ang tawag sa kanila if e classify mo as direction is Ranging since walang galaw masyado. Si Mark Up Stage sine paakyat if e classify mo ang tawag sa kanya is Uptrend while si Mark Down Stage naman is Downtrend.
Pag uusapan natin silang tatlo (Uptrend, Downtrend, Ranging) in the near future.
Sa ngayon I need to mention Uptrend at Downtrend dahil ky A/D. Tatlo ang general rule. Una, Kapag tumataas ang price at pataas din ang A/D ibig sabihin confirmed na ang trend is going up (uptrend).
Pangalawa, Kapag bumababa ng price at pababa din ang A/D ibig sabihin nito confirmed na ang trend is going down (downtrend).
Third, Kapag umaakyat or nag range lang ang price at ang A/D naman ay pababa meaning may divergence na nagaganap.
Ano ang divergence? Divergence occurs when an indicator and the price of an asset are heading in opposite directions. Kapag may divergence, kung anong direction ang indicator ay susunod doon ang price. Kapag umaakyat or nag range ang price at ang A/D naman ay pababa, sooner or later babagsak din si price.
Tatalakayin din natin ang Divergence sa mga susunod na topics but for now ky A/D muna tayo.
Ikaapat, Kapag bumababa ang price or nag range ito at ang A/D ay paakyat sooner or later aakyat din ang price.

I want to be very clear. Don’t confuse an indicator over a strategy. An indicator will show you things but a strategy will tell you where to buy and where to sell.
The idea about market cycle has inspred a lot of traders. Maraming theories at indicators ang nabuo or nagawa dahil sa dito at isa na dito ang Elliott Wave theory na i will discuss and make a blog at youtube video soon.
Studying cycles is the best way to develop the ability to understand where the market stands in its cycle and what performance lies ahead. The market’s position in the cycle won’t tell you what’s going to happen next, but it will tell you when the odds are in your favor and when they’re against you.
