Scaling: A key to unlocking the order in the Chaos

Scaling: A key to unlocking the order in the Chaos

A basic premise of technical analysis is that all the information one needs, is contained in the price. By extension each and everyday and in fact each and every moment, a market’s price is composed of  a time and a price component. In other words this space/time or more specifically price/time continuum of energy is […]

Is the Luster of the Metals Upon Us?

Is the Luster of the Metals Upon Us?

There is a mounting body of evidence to suggest that once again the precious metals may be primed for significant advances. When price targets collide with time targets, the balance that results is very sensitive and short lived. In other words, good points for entry. The corrective moves of 67%, 65%, and 76%  from the […]

The Effect of Moving Thoughts on Our Trading

The Effect of Moving Thoughts on Our Trading

The  set of thoughts and emotions constantly running through our internal perception apparatus, creates the narrative that defines one’s internal state. The study and measurement of this phenomena (as it relates to speculation in financial markets) typically falls in the category of trading psychology.  For there to be a furtherance of activity toward one’s speculative […]

Numbers -The Matrix of All Market Motion

Numbers -The Matrix of All Market Motion

Financial time series modeling should incorporate cyclical analysis. The basis of all cycles is vibration. If an object or a system is stationary, in a particular reference frame, then presumably there is no vibration; although the potential for vibration does exist. If at some point, a polarity manefests, the stationary system aquires the potential for […]

Trend is Like Gravity

Trend is Like Gravity

A cornerstone of all technical analysis is `The Trend’. Rightly so, since the trend is the truest, most precise measurement of the system the analyst is observing and studying. It is a particular vector descriptive of a dynamic system. In different words, it specifies a certain direction, say up, down, or sideways, of a particular […]

Natural Law and Speculation

Natural Law and Speculation

I expect the stock market to rise for the next four weeks, till October 16, to be exact, and to reach the level of 1788.  The specificity of view derives from the particular models I use. The primary thrust of market analysis, for the purpose of locating “good” trades, has for  the last two hundred […]

Using Technical Analysis to Conjure Up a Trade

Using Technical Analysis to Conjure Up a Trade

  Sometimes, when I’m waiting for all the alignments I think create a perfect setup for a trade entry, I get tired of waiting. For example, the next big move, and thereby trade, I anticipate in the stock sector is on August 15th. While I’m waiting for that “ideal” setup to arrive, I’ll sometimes attempt […]

July 4th Marks the Spot for the Stock Market

July 4th Marks the Spot for the Stock Market

  To paraphrase W.D. Gann, a market will not do, what its going to do, unless and until it’s time has come. This concept is central to my investment and trading philosophy. Recently, I pointed out in a webinar that the first step I take to locate  a good trade is to establish a time […]

EQUITIES ALERT

EQUITIES ALERT

  The market has finally arrived in the window where a number of  time projection relationships converge.  Structurally, the market top of last week (10/27/11) marks the  end of a correction (possibly) a 4th wave.  The inside formation seen in today’s S&P trade correlates strongly with continuation to the downside.  Basis the SPY, the move […]

STOCK MARKET TO ADVANCE

STOCK MARKET TO ADVANCE

The advances we saw this week in the stock market should continue.  A number of cycles tuned specifically to equities touch down tomorrow (09/17/11), and I expect will provide the jolt required of a 3rd wave.  Today,I entered long positions at 1210 basis the December e-mini. Since I didn’t see the retracement I was expecting […]
