Now, It’s A Depression

3:43 p.m., EST

Recession’s over … Depression starts

Boots on the ground update from Dan at ‘I Allegedly’.

Drastically reduced economic activity at premium retail locations.

From Uneducated Economist: There’s news the lumber mills are going to curtail production … right in the middle of summer … the high season.

Couple that with the strange ‘going’s on’ reported at this link concerning the database that’s being monitored.

Then, we have another strange ‘coincidence‘ that takes place every hundred years like clockwork.

Which brings us to the sector at hand: Biotech

SPBIO Analysis:

We’ve taken the hourly chart of biotech SPBIO, and inverted it; shown below:

Price action pushed through the spring set up conditions noted in the last update.

SPBIO went on to retrace to the 38%, level … where it is now.

Looking at the price structure of inverse fund LABD (not shown), the downward thrust energy on a daily basis has declined significantly.

That analysis to be forthcoming.

Random Notes

The usual suspects for the week.

No. 1

Let’s start with some comedy

The tree frog on the little boy is the best.

No. 2

So now, it’s ‘Monkeypox’

Of course, it needs to be in Texas

One has to wonder if the Oligarchs are going to make an attempt at lockdown … for our protection. Or, maybe it’s ‘for the children’.

Here’s just a little reminder of how small town Texas deals with community organizers.

Time stamp 0:13.

Hey, I’ll bet you I went to a better school than you went to.

I went to Berkeley, they didn’t screw my mind.’

You can’t make this stuff up.

At least in this town, the police are still protecting the citizenry.

Just think about how pissed these ‘Bubba’s’ are going to be when they find out Trump is part of the cabal as well.

No. 3

The boy that cried ‘wolf’

Nobody agrees with everything Jerimiah Babe has to say.

If you’re watching his videos, then you’re there to get some additional insight.

Comments to his uploads are usually friendly and complimentary … or may have a suggestion or two.

However, when you see something like this, it’s the mark of the unprepared; possibly one who’ll be an early casualty in the coming troubles:

But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away;

Noah spent anywhere from 55 – 75 years building the ark (now resting at the base of Ararat).

It was probably good sport to go down and hurl insults (like that above) … after all, nothing’s happened … yet.

No. 4

Plan, Prepare, then Win

Zig Ziglar probably said it best:

‘First, you have to plan to win. Then, you have to prepare to win. Then, you have to actually do the winning.’

The David Weis story from yesterday, is an example of implementing this approach:

First, I planned to win (being mentored by Weis):

The Plan:

What was going to be required to not be dismissed out of hand as unsuitable material.

Dr. Elder (a friend of Weis) had already shown that getting into a trader camp was an application/approval process.

Therefore, getting an audience (with these professionals) was not a done deal … it didn’t matter how much money you had.

I set out to educate myself as much as possible on Weis:

The Preparation:

Weeks before I sent off an e-mail asking if he still provided mentoring, I had memorized his part of the Elder video. Watching his section at least 20-times or more.

I also searched the internet for any technical articles he had published. I came across (and purchased) a two part series on Wyckoff and trading bonds.

That article had appeared in Stocks & Commodities Magazine in the early 1980s.

I purchased the Wyckoff Trading Course that he discussed in the video. My e-mail to him included those facts.

I had done my homework and was serious about the craft.

There’s no doubt, the up-front effort increased my chances of ‘passing’ the interview.

I was prepared to win.

The Winning:

Yesterday’s anecdote is proof of the actually winning.

Towards the end of the mentoring series, Weis asked me if I would give up my spot for others waiting in line.

I did and the sessions were never completed. That’s a story for another time.

No. 5

Ahead of the pack

The anecdote above brings up an important fact that’s also repeated in videos from Jeremiah Babe and Dan, iAllegedly:

Be ahead of the pack.

It may be the entire system of ‘woke’, along with supported and protected stupidity (disguised as ‘diversity’), is about to collapse in on itself.

If so, it will be messy and chaotic.

Being ahead of the pack gives you options. You can take action while no one else is around. There’s no apparent alarm.

Preparations can be performed more easily and without the stress that comes from running with the herd.
