George Lindsay and the Art of Technical ... > Overview of the Lindsay Timing Model

Chapter 7. Overview of the Lindsay Timing Model

“Most timing studies arrive at a decision to buy or sell through methods which have nothing directly to do with time itself. The procedure described below is timing in the literal sense of the word—merely counting the number of days....On its face, it is for short-term traders. But it can also benefit investors: they will simply use it less frequently.”[1]

George Lindsay

In 1965, George Lindsay published a newsletter titled A Timing Method for Traders. The goal of this method or model is to identify tradable tops in the markets. Part II of this book, “Three Peaks and a Domed House,” mentions that the Timing Model is the “concluding technique” of the 3PDh model. It also says that the Timing Model is a free-standing technique all by itself and is not in need of any other indicators or models. The tops identified by this model are not only the secular or cyclical bull market tops identified by the 3PDh model. The tops anticipated by the Timing Model range from bull market tops to tops followed by corrections of only a few days. Chapter 9, “The Low-Low-High Count,” explains how the relative duration and depth of the expected correction can be anticipated. In honor of Lindsay (and in an attempt to give his model a less awkward epithet), this book refers to this work as “The Lindsay Timing Model.”
