Why Financial Speculation is so Special

In order for most businesses and most things in general, to work and be successful, some amount of marketing is required. Herein lies the major difference between “most businesses”,and trading. In fact, I’m certain this is a primary feature that attracted me to trading more than thirty years ago. For the most part, in the […]

The Thrill of Trading

The Thrill of Trading

I recently wrote a piece touting the importance of market timing as a lead up to my upcoming webinar. The primary focus of the article was the idea that time targets are complimentary to price targets, and as such more fully equip a trader. In my mentoring of other traders, through the years, and certainly […]

I get my edge from timing

I get my edge from timing

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

The concept central to technical analysis is that price is the outward expression of all factors fundamental, be they known or unknown. The short version of this idea is that “price discounts everything”. Acceptance of this notion, compels a deeper look into price. On various levels, price can be interpreted as a number.

The No Inflation Trade

The No Inflation Trade

It is no accident, that I’m not a fundamentalist. The abstraction implicit to the technical approach, aids and abets my natural taciturnity.

Since I’m not inclined nor […]

Second, they are nonlinear, which means that whatever equations are involved, they are complicated by the presence of exponents. Furthermore, we don’t even know what the […]

Markets approach critical point

Markets approach critical point

W.D. Gann stressed the idea that “When time has come, then and only then will a market move”. More deeply his insights point to the equivalency of time and price as superficial markers of energy. Current calculations suggest that time is running out for various financial sectors to reach critical resonance points correlated with directional […]

Finding the Market’s Mojo

Finding the Market’s Mojo

To follow a trend, once it has begun, or to anticipate a trend in advance of its start, are two opposite approaches that speculators consider.  In order to improve my edge, I continually look for ways to reconcile  the different analytical types. Curiously, I often use the Elliott Wave Principle to liaison my trend analysis […]

Will Gold Regain Its Luster ?

Since the bottom at the end of last year, gold prices have been steadily rising. This has prompted much discussion related to a new bull market in the metals having already commenced. My analysis suggests that gold is still in a correction. I might refer to the rally in gold prices since the December 31, […]
