After Queen: A Prescient Dreams Discussion

Business first as a continuation of our sluggish-to-begin rally finally dug-in Thursday. The picture from here still leaves open a Wave 2(5) run back to the overhead resistance trend line. IF we are in the early slog of Wave 3 down (a minor (ii) rally in play now), then using those Elliott and Fibonacci numbers … Read More

Rally Ho! NostraGeorgeUs Nap Time

Although we had legit concerns about Taiwan being subject to a Chinese grab over the long weekend, good sense (and a super-typhoon) prevailed.  So, we reckon this to be “strike three” for “Divine Winds.”  (For the other two in 1274 and 1281 consult your history books.) Which brings us to this morning and what – … Read More

Lobbying the Fed, Job Week, and a Woo-Woo

I have so much “energy flow” going on, it’s ridiculous.  I mean, seriously nuts.  Up since 3 AM on a hyper roll: Peoplenomics tomorrow is the first 3-thousand-word block of a book on Life Management.  Sure, everyone knows time-management, but what about all that shit shoe-horned into available time?  (Already, 5,000 words into it…) ShopTalk Sunday column … Read More

Testimony of Product Tester 1078

Sometimes, it’s hard to write directly about “what the data says.”  Because, many times, people will not accept ‘raw data.’ Our socialization programs us to think a certain way.  It’s hard to “bug out” of the dominant social paradigm. Occasionally, though, bugouts happen – not due to any special onboard biasing. It can arise because … Read More

An Absolute Must Read

You may not be a frequent visitor to But their article today lays out exactly the kind of topology of dying that I covered in my book “Packing to Die: Suitcase between your ears…”  that I’ll be on George Noory’s Coast-to-Coast-AM talking about Tuesday night/Wednesday morning (depending on your time zone). The article is must-read. … Read More

CFNAI, War, and Woo-Woo Reports

A dandy day of Spring, Sunday.  Second day of spring is a lot more “iffy.” Let’s begin with economic matters, especially the Chicago Fed National Activity Indicator which is just out: “The Chicago Fed National Activity Index (CFNAI) moved down to +0.51 in February from +0.59 in January. Three of the four broad categories of … Read More

“Running of the Bears” Comes True, Housing Awaits

We sat out the manic Monday market decline – and furious rally that followed Monday – for a number of reasons:  Statistical and Medical, mainly. Lot of anti-aging notes at the bottom of this morning’s column (see ATR below). We’ll do the medical in the Around the Ranch section.  But, as to the statistical?  The … Read More

Our Future: 3 Down and Bang

Reader Note:  Be sure to read the ATR section today! Humans know a hell of a lot more about the future than they’ll generally let on.  All because we don’t teach people: There are lots of ways to “see future” These methods can be broken-apart and assembled into a logical order. When you do so, … Read More

The Kind of Interview that Matters

We usually keep our nose on the “economics and wise-spending” grindstone.  But, now and then, the Larger Contexts of Life deserve a glance.  Markets will break higher – or lower – but no point on worrying about that, just yet. So today off to the Land of Woo-Woo.  An interview with Martin Keller.  Whose book … Read More

The Triumph of SNAFU, Reality Breaks

You may not be old enough to remember the term “SNAFU” but it meant “Situation Normal, All Fouled Up.”  With variants for the “eff-word” more common. As another year begins, we see SNAFU but have concerns this will be part of the larger “reality breaks” implicit in the Multi-Worlds Interpretation (MWI) of quantum mechanics. It’s … Read More

Life Loops: Elliott Waves of Humans?

We take a pause to consider human predictability and that of markets.  It occurred to me this week that we might be able to look at human behavior in an Elliott-like manner, so this morning we put on the psychological beanie and head for the couch.  With the requisite golden scarab. First, though, the usual … Read More
