Risk Avoidance Spectrum and Character Types

Ever since I started following stocks again, I have been preoccupied with developing a "game plan" to help prevent me from making emotional investment decisions.  Plans can be improved.  What I have come up with so far is a stress avoidance model to study how different character types might perform in relation to the market.  Since quite a number of investors are actually algorithms - and many trades are algorithmically triggered - the concept of stress needs to be more liberally interpreted.…See More

"Hi Don, you may be onto something with your research. However, regarding your statement "..nearly 33 years later, nobody has come up with an explanation how or why the crash happened", if you haven't done so yet, I suggest you…"

Studying Risk-based Algomorphology Using Thunderbird Charts

I recently wrote about a stock trading approach that I call skipjack: it allows the user to trade directly from special charts by exploiting skipjack waveforms and formations.  I mentioned that I use an application - a simulation environment - to trade from these charts.  Below I present a screenshot of SimTactics, the application that I created to support this simulated trading.  To the right is a notepad containing four trades generated by an autopilot feature of the SimTactics.  Over the…See More

Nearly 33 Years Later, Nobody Knows What Triggered the Crash of 1987

I opened my first stock trading account shortly after I landed my first full-time job in 1987 - the same year as the great stock market crash - also known as Horrible Monday.  (I renamed Black Monday in keeping with the times.)  I dropped out of university to "find myself."  It seemed so easy working at an office-supplies retailer: putting supplies in the stockroom; filling the store shelves with merchandise; and handling the cash register.  It all made sense, too.  I didn't know what I would…See More

Skipjack Stock Trading Environment

While the skipjack tuna is a reasonably attractive fish, it is perhaps less so if its colours are inverted as in the case below.  Later in the blog I will be introducing the "Destroying Angel Formation."  This can be found during a full-spectrum inversal of the skipjack waveforms, which might occur before a major stock-market correction or crash.Skipjack as a form of technical analysis is primarily about math and geometry.  It is not a psychological approach.  Unlike studying Japanese…See More

"Sounds interesting. Will you explain how to create the indicator you write about?  Or can you tell us more about the waveform logic you apply to trading... Cheers, Mirio"

"About technical analysis: Jesse Livermore was a genius stock trader who invented TA, kind of to justify his own decisions. There are some basic things the probably work most of the time, but so many people use it that I don't think you can…"

Code-name "Skipjack" - Stock Trading Methodology

It is not something that a young person necessarily needs to know, but a person my age dedicates some portion of his intellectual resources on the dangers of stock market crashes.  I have reflected over the years on the sort of person I might be today were it not for stock market crashes.  In my earliest recollection, I was so disillusioned, I decided to go back to school…See More
