Adam Hewison of INO Insider blog just posted a new video on how he uses their proprietary trading triangles to trade the CRB index and also how he uses the CRB to forecast inflationary and deflationary cycles.

In the video he discusses how the index has been around since 1957 and has accurately forecasted every inflationary and deflationary cycle since.

Here are some of his comments surrounding the video:

This is my number one indicator for large cyclic trends. You may want to watch this index carefully should you want to invest in certain stocks and commodity related markets.

Over the last half-century, this index has seen some remarkable moves both on the upside and more recently on the downside. I believe that this is the indicator that everyone should watch. If you trade stocks or futures and are interested in world trade trends, this is the indicator to track.
