The last link is a good composite cycle going back over a year and a half. I’m not saying that BTC-USD is about to crash, but anyone buying BTC-USD today should be just fine with a 50% correction and holding for another 3 years.

We are thrilled to announce the relaunch of Cycles Magazine: The Official Journal of the Foundation for the Study of Cycles, a quarterly publication that will showcase the work of Members and cycles researchers from all over the world.
Cycles Magazine is a demonstration of our commitment to preserve and sustain the heritage of the FSC as it pertains to financial technical analysis as well as a restoration of Founder Edward R. Dewey’s original vision of the FSC as a not-for-profit institution dedicated to discovering and promoting a new science of cycles.
Modern life continues to accelerate, and the FSC continues to adapt. But it is also part of the FSC’s role to encourage us to take a step back and look at the big picture. That is the primary purpose of Cycles Magazine.
In this issue:
- Bill Sarubbi approaches cycles from the viewpoint of his former Greenwich Village neighbor, George Lindsay.
- Tony Plummer provides unique insight into a W.D. Gann-derived cycle that has application to both markets and the economy.
- Andrew Pancholi applies cycles expertise to the periodicity of pandemic outbreaks, a particularly relevant study given the current global outbreak of COVID.
- Theodore Modis relates sunspots to the U.S. GDP and the financial markets, indicating, “A correlation has been observed between the U.S. GDP and the number of sunspots as well as the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the number of sunspots.”
- John Casti explores the role of collective feelings or mood in human affairs and how this impacts cycles.
It has been nearly 25 years since the last issue. We hope you enjoy and share your thoughts with us.
We are thrilled to announced the creation of the Edward R. Dewey Cycles Award in honor of Founder, Edward R. Dewey. Dewey devoted his life to the study of cycles and the Award aims to build on that work by supporting and encouraging cycles research.
Dr. Richard Smith, Chairman of the Board and Executive Director commented, “Our mission is to support the scientific study of cycles. The Dewey Award is part of a broad plan to unite and energize a worldwide community of cycles researchers. Bringing their work together in one forum will amplify their findings and inspire more research.”
Scholarly papers will be accepted until January 31, 2021 at Midnight. Learn more at cycles.org/DeweyAward2021.
A single finalist will receive:
- Cash prize of USD $5,000
- Invitation to present winning paper at the FSC broadcast event
- Full text or summary may be published in Cycles Magazine, in the monthly newsletter, on the FSC’s website, and in the FSC Knowledge Base
We encourage the study of cycles in all areas, including but not limited to:
- Natural Phenomena: Animal / plant life, geology, weather, quantum processes, magnetism, astronomy, solar activity, electromagnetic spectrum
- Mathematics & Computing: Cryptography, data compression, entropy vs. fractal cycles, game theory, computing innovation
- Business & Economics: Financial markets, GPD, taxation, interest rates, inflation, real estate, poverty, production / manufacturing
- Human Cycles: Blood pressure, sleep, breathing, emotions, creativity, disease / pandemics, mortality, stress, fatigue, marriage/divorce
- Social & Political: Political events, social unrest / wars, immigration, inter-generational cycles, music, art, language, sports, crime, traffic

We are pleased to announced that Cycles Research Institute (CRI) will be merging with the FSC to create a united, not-for-profit educational institution dedicated to the study of cycles. CRI’s Director, Ray Tomes, will join the FSC Board of Directors to galvanize cycles research in the sciences.
Chairman of the Board and CEO of the FSC, Dr. Richard Smith commented, “There could not be a more important time for cycles researchers to work together. We find ourselves in a very similar place as Founder Edward R. Dewey when he first identified verifiable cycles in the market over 80 years ago. As a united community we can build on Dewey’s work to better understand where we are in cycles that transcend our lifetime.”
After the death of Dewey, dedicated cycles researchers and scientists continued their studies independently or within new organizations, like CRI. CRI and many independent scientists are rejoining the FSC, as it becomes clear that the FSC is truly committed to the original vision of its founding members.
“I was a Member of the FSC and spoke at the FSC conferences for years,” said Tomes, who is also the founder of CRI. “Now that it is being restored to the dynamic organization it once was under Dewey, I am eager to join the Board and unite our efforts to support the cycles community in its important work.”
As a new Board Member, Tomes brings decades of experience in the study of cyclical phenomena. While working in systems software development and economic modeling for prediction, he discovered the importance of cycles and joined the FSC in the 1980s. In addition to CATS cycles analysis software, Tomes developed Harmonics Theory to explain observed patterns of cycles and the entire structure of the universe.
Founded in 2004, CRI’s mission is to promote, conduct and publish the scientific research of cycles and fluctuations in natural and social phenomena in a manner dedicated to the public welfare.
