Salty, are you theeeere . . . ?
Hey, I almost missed the trick. But when I realized that today, Dec. 7, is the anniversary of Pearl Harbor, I started all over to wrestle with my
simian genetic inheritance.
The strategy for tomorrow's trading session is to hold on the concept of opposites and make the calculation as brief as possible. Since the Dow goes
up and down, opposites are like the Constitution -- they direct all the works.
The opposites to start with are SPECIAL and ORDINARY. Imagine a box with calender days in it. When you reach inside the box and randomly pick one day,
the day could be special or ordinary. The specialty is that you may pick a day which is recognized as a national or religious holiday.
But how do you tell apart special days from the ordinary when the days in the box do not indicate any holidays or weekends?
Since you were looking at Dec. 8, suppose that this is the day you picked from the box. Is this day special or ordinary?
Since SPECIAL and ORDINARY are opposites, we need to take the day and create some opposite to it. When you write Dec. 8
, the syntax doesn't
clue any practical opposite, but when you write the date as 12/8
, the syntax implies a division of numbers. Now what is the opposite to
division? That's right; the opposite to division is multiplication, and so we multiply 12 by 8 and see if the result spells the word "opposite" as
12 x 8 = 96
The result is indeed an apparent opposite, cuz 9 is 6 upside down.
I can imagine that someone would take 96 and start thinking about whether the Dow would lose or gain 96 points tomorrow. But that is a dead-end
street, cuz 96 doesn't show any apparent clue how to decide. Instead, we create another opposite by describing 96:
" 96 is a number that STARTS with 9 and ENDS with 6."
Then we apply these two opposites to the date Dec. 8. I'll show you how:
The line is a timeline that starts Jan. 1 and ends Dec. 31. The 'x' is a point on the timeline that marks Dec. 8. Now you know what is coming next,
That's exactly what we will do: We define the Dec. 8 point in a similar way that points are defined in geometry.
Dec. 8 is the 343th
day from the start of the leap year and the 24th
day from the end.
Now we have two numbers: 343 and 24. Since the multiplication of the date has taken us all the way here, it is a multiplication that takes care of
343 x 24 = 8232,
and we are done. On Monday, Dec. 8, the Dow should lose some weight and close at 8232 points.
Is 8232 points a realistic figure?
Well, you need to review it and put a stamp on it. But you already anticipated some noticeable downward movement to take place on Dec. 8.
But in order to make things happen, you need to arm the prediction: Get a black-feathered chicken and a sharp axe. Raise the axe and saying in
French*, "Now the axe goes down," cut the chicken's head off on one swing.
* Nostradamus wrote his prophetic Quatrains in French.
The circumstances look very unfavorable to the idea of the Dow losing on Monday: the futures indicate that positive mood engulfed the traders
worldwide, the bailout of the US automakers considered a done deal by the insiders being responsible for the cheers on world stock exchanges.
If the mind manipulator wants to make a big point on Monday at NYSE, he would have to delete the bailout from the trader's head. Rise and shine,
otherwise the mind manipulator is one boring ET dude on his way to obscurity.
