The world is full of randomness and people behave differently at different times so that it is difficult to predict the exact future. If we study the science and mathematics cycles then those have predictable sets of rules and moves in a regular way. But economics, companies, and participants are relying on the psychological influences so that they do not behave in a regular way. When emotions have an involvement then things become more difficult to predict.
So that Greed and Fear of the investors remain regular in every cycle. This affects the prices of the assets.
As per the Cambridge dictionary, the definition of cycle “a group of events that happen in a particular order, one following the other, and are often repeated.”
We can see that many factors affect the occurrence of the events and that makes it difficult to predict the exact for the future. Current global scenario, we have an ample number of factors that can affect the cycle such as crude, the decision of the USA, domestic economic conditions, etc.
