Ready to Play IV 5 Minor (ii)?

Short Version: Market drops today. Long Version: My consigliere called Sunday to remind me that we are still on target for World War III or IV in the 2019 to 2024 time frame. Like that’s something I’d forget? “Seven year cycles, George. Don’t forget that: Seven years…” Which, as a student of our Cheerionomics 501 class you will remember as Clement Juglar’s ideas. If you dozed off during our last discussion, the class notes are here in Wikipedia. Pay particular attention to: “In 1860 French economist Clement Juglar first identified … Continue reading

Coping: My Body, My Chemistry Set

It has been a while since I updated you on my quest for perfect nutrition – on the theory we really are what we eat – so… DISCLAIMER: I am not a doctor, medical professional, or associated with any school, college, or university medical school. Think of me as just someone you ran into on the street,  Do not consider any of my PERSONAL MEDICAL OBSERVATIONS as applying to one person: Me, the author. Look, I know you aren’t a child and have already figured this out, but we live … Continue reading

BREXIT and Markets: So This UFO Lands…

Not really. But it sure helps to use a semi-fictional analogy in order to explain markets this week, so that’s exactly what we shall do.  Trust me, it’ll be far more readable than a dissertation paper. You see, as a thinking tool, we’re big on getting back to the basics because it is often in “the basics” that we find the seeds of future developments that germinate into a full-on deflowering of some of Men’s greatest follies. Like the European Union Idea, for example.  Been a crappy idea from the … Continue reading

Our Post BREXIT A-Game

Another short update and mainly aimed at our Peoplenomics.com readers.  I will likely update Peoplenomics for this week an hour or two before the close of trading today. The reason is that our ChartPack and Aggregate Index are in flux with this break following the EU Exit vote by the Brits (who are voted to get free of the EU mess while they could) have changed in character a good deal. The first blush number run using our brainamp.xls presents the possibility now of a decline to the 1900 area … Continue reading

BREXIT ON, MARKETS SHAKEN

This is almost surreal: I have mentioned several times to readers that I was long the SSO but when it set up for a suspicious move strongly up on Thursday my alarm bells went off. As Peoplenomics.com readers know, I developed a very simple spreadsheet that takes possible Elliott wave 1 moves and projects them to three and five wave outcomes. My lowest target for my SSO  long trade was 67, but because of BRECIT uncertainty, well, sometimes let’s just say intuition is important.  Hopping up to 67.32 was just … Continue reading

Running the Shorts: BREXIT as “Hype du jour”

I believe I mentioned that any time George Soros starts talking down the market and predicting crash-like declines, I take it as a near sure sign that my long position is about to pay off. As mentioned to Peoplenomics subscribers in a Wednesday analysis, the NY Times has a very good, but short, piece on the reality of BREXIT and the realities are that a) today’s vote in a non-binding referendum and b) an actual pull-out from the EU’s clutches is spelled out in Article 50 of their confabulation and … Continue reading

Coping: With the “Free Lunch Crowd”

In our Wednesday www.peoplenomics.com report, we touched on a very difficult point for many people to comprehend:  Namely, who should really be allowed to vote in America. I proposed something that could be called Social Contribution-Based Voting. In the early days of America, as you may know, only people who were landowners could vote.  Since they paid the bills, why not? In modern times, this would never fly for any number of reasons, not the least of which is it doesn’t recognize the rights of renters. So it occurred to … Continue reading

Social Contribution-Based Voting

Yep, time to expand the government’s accounting relationship with its citizens.  Only this time, the people making the contributions and writing the checks for the free-loaders deserve a chance to cut a better deal. We’ll explain. But first, how the BREXIT vote tomorrow is a non-event except for stock promoters who like to :”talk their book” and why social media is still heading for the rocks, until proven otherwise. Bean up with a triple shot Americanos, dude, time to rock the cash box… More for Subscribers       ||| SUBSCRIBE NOW!       |||      … Continue reading

Brexit and BrainAmp,xls

If you aren’t a subscriber to our www.peoplenomics.com site, you are missing one of the most useful little tools out there. It’s a simple spreadsheet I call “brainamp.xls” and its purpose is to tell me as much as possible about the potential future of the market with as little information as possible. Just for the hell of it, I thought I would toss the numbers into the tool this morning based on Monday’s Manic trading session so you can get an idea of how it works. First off, there was … Continue reading
