The single most pervasive characteristic of vibration is that of duality. Every component of vibration has it’s opposite . . . the above and the below. Wave forms produce opposing forces. The duality of [+] positive and [-] negative forces manifest (can be seen more readily) in the damping waves which trail the primary vibrational momentum wave up and down.


Rising [+] Damping Wave           Falling [-] Damping Wave

Opposing forces produce ‘Friction‘ as the momentum wave is penetrated. This process slows the momentum wave and eventually turns it . . . serving to perpetuate the wave.

While any damping factor can be applied, it has been found that Newton’s 3rd law of ‘opposite and equal forces’ is most appropriate. Note then: The friction zone pictured here (aka SwtSptZn) is the .9, .707, .666, .618, .583, and .5 friction points of the .5 damping wave.

Observers of the momentum wave will come to realize (over time) that all manner of understanding of price action is derived from these ‘Friction‘ zones.                                                       [. . . Next]
