The goal of this website is to discuss trading financial markets through the lens of nonlinear models and technical analysis (TA). I will be primarily be using cryptocurrencies, indexes or currencies as basic tracking indicators. They are good places to start when seeking to plumb the depths predicting freely traded markets. I also am going to seek to sell my research signals to a limited clientele.
So what do mummies have to do with trading?
In the sci-fi/horror genre years back (think Jonny Quest as a thumbnail sketch) the mummy was very strong but not agile. He would vanquish his victims with a mighty ‘bear hug.’ The metaphor goes like this: You can NOT beat the market by brute strength (it will be stronger) but you have to use cunning.
So the rule of the trading game is: The Mummy (market) is stronger and try to grab and crush you. But with some foreknowledge, you can anticipate his mores, deliver a few good blows (profitable trades).
I have over 30 years of experience working on trading models. I have worked at CompuTrac (pioneers in automated TA testing) and LBS Capital Management (pioneers in artificial intelligence). The experience I have is arguably unique. I also believe the universe is a created object and thus contains an underlying order. Hopefully, this combination has given me the “special sauce” ingredients of insight to tackle the issue of financial market (trading) prediction.
