Hi John,
Many would say time has more meaning -Gann (the greatest investor of all-time) for one. Most of Gann work refers to mulitday movements and I have not yet found references to intra-day time points.

There exists an extensive group of individuals who focus almost exclusively on time (usually found under the term "cycle studies").

I am really intrigued by you reply and have been looking at your posts. I am very glad you have taken the time to continue this discussion. The depth of your work is more than what I could hope for, this is the type of discussion I was originally after.
More later ...
Thank you,

Hi John,

Thank-you for your kind words.

I work very hard, but that is part of my make-up/karma.
I have been thinking about your question in more depth since my reply to you.

In many ways what we believe is possible sets the limits of possibility for us.
I believe that there exist a beautiful intricate order in the Universe. With that belief I set forward to find it.

I believe there is a relationship between time and price and so armed, or perhaps fortified, with that belief I can spend time to find it. While there are countless things one could look at, intuition is one's strongest ally.

Try "adding this to this and see if that works..." But the "voice"/urging of intuition is soft. You need to just try it and now.(Why now? - well that's a long discussion and gets into spiritual/metaphysical points beyond this thread.)

For example, after posting to you I looked at a daily chart (of the ES) and noted:
  1. L1243.25 March 16 @13:21
  2. H1335.75 April 16 @ 8:41
  3. L1290.25 April 18 @ 10:06

Then I counting the trading days between 1 and 2 = 15TD and between 2 and 3, (7,8,11,12,13,14,15,18) =8TD

Using the number of minutes in the TD (8:30 to 15:15CT) I worked out how many trading minutes between 2 and 3.
Then I set myself questions:
e.g. how is time one connected to price 2 ?

All the best on your search.

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.
