On another chart
The Kondratief wave shows 2012 as the LOW of the K -WINTER
IT STARTED as of Jan 2000, and fell off the proverbial cliff in 2008-2009, and getting ready to make the rest of the trip into 2012, but it wont end there, as it can straggle along for months after the actual low which is scheduled for May or June of 2012. THATS a 70 year
cycle low from June of 1942.
