    Power of 3

    In the stock market, things almost always come in 3's.


    AMZN shot up big one day twice in recent days. The third will come to complete the usual pattern of 3.

    Today is a good day for the third upward run.

    Oh, by the way, usually the third one is the biggest.

    • Just like 3 wishes then?

      Do you believe in pixies, elves and fairies then too?

      Just like everybody else you don't know, you just wish.

      • "Just like 3 wishes then?"

        No, this has everything to do with the fact that AMZN is rigged.

        Example:

        Suppose "they" decide to move AMZN up.

        They move bids and asks up once.

        Now, when the first "up" move occurs, people think "Oh, it's nothing. Just a fluke."


        Then they move bids and asks up again.

        Second time, people notice and think "Hmmm . . . maybe it's going up." Some jump in, some hesitate.


        Then they move bids and asks up again.

        Third time, many get convinced that it is going up. When this state is reached, "they" can really trade. Until this state is reached, "they" keep doing whatever "they" set out to do.

        Of course, "they" employ the same technique on the downside, too.


        It's human nature. If you see something happening three times in a row, you get convinced.
