Those that encounter my blogs might notice two distinct types: 1) blogs that I formally prepare almost like an essay; and 2) those that are "unplugged" or informally prepared rather like a personal journal entry. The mystique of writing something where I don't exactly know the…Continue

Since technical debt has become a central part of my recent professional challenges, I started writing a series of installments regarding this topic.
Do not expect any extensive and detailed work in here, if you need it you can get it googling it or from your favourite online content source.
Just expect more a light work crafted from…Continue

About a month ago, I posted a blog on “Technical Deconstruction.” I described this as a technique to break down aggregate data to distinguish between its contributing parts: these parts might contain unique characteristics compared to the aggregate. For instance, I suggested that it can be helpful to break down data by workday - that is to say, maintaining separate data for each day of the week. I said that the data could be further deconstructed perhaps by time period and employee: the…Continue

The term “technical analysis” usually refers to the study of stock prices. A technical analyst might use real-time or closing prices of stocks to predict future prices. This is an interesting concept because of what is normally excluded from the analysis - namely, everything except prices. Given that the approach doesn’t necessarily consider the health or profitability of the underlying companies, a purely technical approach seems to offer guidance that is disconnected from reality. Yet…Continue

I made a recent discovery that I would like to share with the community. In my previous blog, I introduced a special algorithmic shell that distributes stocks based on their price movements (along the x-axis) and volume movements (y-axis). Using this shell, it is possible to visualize the trading behaviours of dozens of stocks simultaneously. I noticed one day that the stocks seemed to be lining up in formation. I decided to test the accuracy of my visual interpretation. Below I present the…Continue

I heard an accountant once say that people in his profession are generally bad investors. I am uncertain if this is true. I never really bothered to confirm his assertion. He said that his reasons for believing so relate to the nature in which accountants interpret data, which he implied was rather literal. I personally almost always ignore "book value" - that is to say, the cost of acquisition. For me, the book value is similar to a figure of speech: the investment value never has to be…Continue

In this blog, I share some images from an application called Storm. I wrote the program many years ago. Storm has the ability to generate 3-dimensional plumes from a stream of data. It also has an unusual feature that allows the user to trade based on the kinetics - effectively eliminating the need to know about pricing. At this time, I would like to draw a clear distinction between trading and investing. I should also point out that I used Storm for recreational…Continue
