Although I don’t understand all the technical aspects of the financial markets, I’m a big fan of Martin Armstrong’s blog and writings. One thing that has always thrown me for a loop were his dates and figuring out how they translated to a specific day on the calendar. I looked around the internet for a while and finally found something on a forum. But it wasn’t easy to find and took a while. I decided to provide it here for others who might be interested in finding out the info.
“The key as to when will this wave of civil unrest hit the USA is tied to the economic downturn in 2015.75.” – Martin Armstrong Blog
The date 2015.75:
2015 = The year 2015
75 is a percentage of the days of the year. You translate it this way –
365 days in 1 year x .75 = 273.75 or rounded to 274.
274 = the day of the year. Going here, you can find the date.
274 = Oct. 1, 2015
I hope this helps others interested in translating these dates.

Great, now can you help me understand the colors in his arrays? Example the difference on the top line of his arrays where some colors are blue and some are pink? The top line is supposed to be a composite of the lines below it and the higher the bar the higher change of a directional change but he does not explain the colors? http://i1.wp.com/armstrongeconomics.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/DJFOR-W-6-17-2013.jpg
Also, there are 2 blue bars pretty high in a row, does that mean the direction changes each week? or a strong continuation of the current direction?
I’m sorry man. I have no idea. I struggle with many of those graphics. Good luck.
Thanks! I wondered what the ??? was up with that dates thing. What’s the point of obscuring things with weird notations? I think I’ll take a pass on him. ;-(
It is weird to do dates like that, however there must be a reason. I wouldn’t give up on what he is saying though.
Hey there, I’ve only discovered Martin Armstrong somewhat recently and I’m still in the process of understanding and evaluating the stuff he makes public. I’ve been rather impressed so far and plan to sign up for his Socrates system when it’s available (soon). There’s a whole story (now out in movie form – The Forecaster) on what he’s about and what he’s been through. I’d think he has more than enough cause to say screw the world and walk way, but I think he’s a decent guy that wishes to continue his work and level the playing field a little with the system that tossed him under the bus. His blogs are interesting and have got me to question a few things I’d though I understood well enough.
Regarding V’s question, the only significance of the colors in the various models of his array is whether one is a larger amplitude or not in comparison to the previous week’s result. Take the composite for example. A large score will be blue and if the following week scores lower it will be colored pink.
Also check this out to have a better idea of what the whole confidence model is all about. http://www.armstrongeconomics.com/archives/23145
Martin Armstrong has been FULLY debunked at the website below. Here is the article that specifically debunked Armstrong’s ECM model/cycle. If you read thru that link, it gave you TWO direct links to Armstrong’s own website, giving you TWO different ECM dates, while at the same time, giving you the reference that Armstrong’s claim that ECM is accurate down to the very day.
That is Armstrong contradicting directly against himself.
