Paul Desmond also wrote an article on market bottoms, which won the Market Technicians Association Dow Award in 2001. You can find the article at:

Desmond wrote regarding market peaks:

Usually, the first warning sign that a Bull market is losing some of its upward momentum occurs when the percentage of stocks
rising to a New 52-Week Highs begins to contract. This warning typically occurs as much as six to twelve months in advance of the
final highs in the big-cap indexes.

I disagree with one point on what is stated below. When an uptrend begins after a long and significant decline, you will get a reading over +400 and that is not a sell point. It's an initial overbought point that occurs early in the takeoff on a bull move.

'First, separate the noise from the signal by ignoring any tick readings within the +/-400 range. We then record and aggregate those readings outside this range at a fixed time interval. We don't know exactly what interval Mark uses so just pick a time interval: minute, hour, day, etc. The important thing is to be consistent. That's it! Now you have the super secret Mark D. Cook, Cook Cumulative Tick Indicator. So what do you do with it? Watch the 95th and 5th percentile. If the Cumulative Tick Indicator is above the 95th percentile, sell; if below 5th percentile, buy.

Remember, this is a counter trend strategy so the more extreme the tick, the more vicious the snapback. As with all counter trend strategies, mind your protective stop loss! A trend can persist much longer than you can remain solvent. Never try and be a hero by playing chicken with the market.'
