Random Notes

The usual suspects for the week

No. 1

The market does not ‘have’ to do anything.

Here’s a link to a Zerohedge report letting us know why the market ‘has to cover shorts‘ and move higher this coming week.

The reason retail money managers, pundits and the financial press don’t focus on price action and volume (a life-long pursuit of mastery), is because it’s hard.

As the late David Weis said:

‘There’s a lot to this game of reading the chart.’

Just as Steven Van Metre has drilled down into perfecting his style of bond ‘macro’ management, so too has this site drilled down into the nuance of volume and price action.

That in turn, is coupled with the externals (the ‘macro’, if you will) of sentiment and fundamentals.

It’s more art and intuition than science.

That’s a good thing.

The pointy headed ‘quants’, can’t quantify intuition.

The market (which is thinning out as we speak) may indeed rise this coming week. However, if it does, it won’t be because it ‘has’ to.

No. 2

The ‘knock at the door’

Awaken With JP has a humorous but educational approach on how to help those who want to ‘help’ us.

No. 3

Get the ethanol out

Here’s a brief video on how to get the ethanol out of gasoline.

Once that’s out, you’ll need octane boost. This seems to be highly rated stuff.

No. 4

Grow and store your own. Food, that is.

In this report from iceagefarmer, the picture at time stamp 10:27, should dispel all illusion. ‘Shaking hands with Klaus’.

At time stamp 16:02, notice how many farmers have been notified.

Once awake, anomalies like these ‘numbers’ are spotted instantly. It serves to remind us, who is ‘of this world’.

My kingdom is not of this world

No. 5

Brew your own. Beer, that is.

At this point in time and with global shutdowns on the horizon again, maybe we just brew our own.

I have purchased the exact kit shown in the link.

Report on the results to follow.
