Markets are often driven by three cyclical timeframes: short term trend, by events such as monthly options expirations; intermediate term trend, due to quarterly earnings announcements and FOMC activities; and long term trend, by corporate and governmental fiscal year budgeting and planning. Trends in different timeframes occur simultaneously. GuerillaStockTrading tracks these three timeframes on the S&P 500.

The intermediate term trend is favored by swing traders, typically last from weeks to months and can also be used to better time entries and exits on long term trend trades.
