Your humor is a peek into your healthy soul.
I have been looking at current numbers and applying your concept. I think you are rreit with the coming week. I was about to sell all my profitable calls on monday and I thought, Bizzarro opposite world. Ups and downs are never linear, they are almost harmonic until the natural dampening is overcome and then BIG movement. Although I venture to say that the 900 pt loss on the Dow since May2 is big.
The intra day difference in the DOW has been in the 100 range through march but has gone up significantly in the last eight days to consistently over 200.
April 2 and May 1 have about the same top. What is the conventional wisdom on a double top? It has gone down 900 since then.
