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 long term trend is the realm of investors who are looking to hold for extended periods of time.
