    a WISE WOMAN owned a sardine cannery...

    I turned it into a limerick...........It doesn't seem to flow ;/

    There once was a woman who sold fish
    Her son sampled it and said "ish"
    She snapped with a punitive tone
    This is for money all alone
    besides many buyers find it "delish"

    Moral of the story:

    A fish in the can is worth two in the mouth. :D

    Sorry I couldn't helpmyself

    Y=Tan(x)

    ps before I leave you. Tanx is continuous at zero. The asymptotes occur at -pie/2 and +pie/2.

    Good luck

    Just trying to explain to the kid how trig functions correspond to charts. :-{ I think I am going to hang this up.

    Stephen listen.

    Regression is statistics not a line. It has nothing to do with gaps.

    Your argument is tangential not your so called regression. Do you know what the graph of tanx looks like? Have you ever seen it. It cannot and I repeat it can not be superimposed on a equities chart.

    I am not making this an exact science but saying what you are expressing is bunch of hooey to put it nicely. It doesn't have to be exact. but it has to resemble something.

    Just out of school........... I have been trading as long as you have lived. Go back and see how long I have been here. I am an option specialist and trade technical spreads like time spreads. I also use statistical analysis and rationalize my trades.

    HFT's and algos have nothing to do with our discussion. That is called a tangential argument not to be mistaken tanx. I have no idea what this "fear and greed"is.

    Umkay..........Please if you don't know what you are talking about............Please don't state it.

    and......................you go on iggy. You do not explain your position. It is just a bunch mumbo jumbo.

    Good luck to you bud

    No, what I am saying is that if you are talking about trigonometry it has to be continuous. That is a fact. The stock market is continuous.

    If you honestly building a regression line on Tanx here are some questions for you:
    1) The graph is going to move in phase so what does 214 degrees mean in relation to the chart?

    2) What is regression? Do you know what regression is?

    3)
    A) What is the integral with bounds from 0 to pie/2 of tanx?
    B) How do you normalize it to 1 which is a probability?.

    4) How do you use a graph that goes from neg infinity to positive infinity and then a infinitesimal bit on the x axis and it is negative infinity again? This is the graph of tanx.

    You are getting in too deep. You can use your analysis but for us mathematical people you have to show how this thing works. It seems like you are making things up. If not, then you should be able to answer those questions.

    There are methods that can be utilized to predict the market. like:

    Symmetry......What happens on the left side happens on the right side.

    lines from from tops of peaks and bottoms of valleys and looking at the coils to determine momentum.

    Big money flow.............Ie momentum (or lack there of) after gaps.

    You can utilize graphs but you have to understand how patterns show the "psychology" of the stock.

    Have a good night.

    Regression is just a normalized (standard normal) about a function. If the function is linear, it is about a line. The regression can be used for dt's. It does not predict a break and has nothing to do with asymptote of Tanx. Think of it as an area normalized to 1. Each piece of the regression can be measures as a incremental slice. With a regression, you are figuring a probability of being in a certain region away from a line.

    It does not measure break outs nor does it have an asymptotic behavior. I have had calculus and calculus based probability and analysis. I have very in depth math so you can't buffalo me by researching on the web and then replying.

    Regressive analysis has nothing to do with the asymptotic behavior of Tanx. If you know your standard normal curve, you know it is exponential and has nothing to do with tan. It is a probability not a counter trend methodology.

    Counter trends are based on reactive psychology and don't correlate to regression.

    Tanx does not describe the stock market. The graph is more for learning about functions. It does not oscillate therefore it cannot be used for time comparison.

    Sorry I mean that the asymptotes should be pie/2 not zero.

    Your vertical asymptote of Tanx is when cosx=0 not when it goes positive. Tanx=sinx/cosx. Why cos and not sin?

    I don't know why you are bringing up Tanx. It is not continuous function and has nothing to do with the natural world.

    Also there are oscillations in the stock market but the graph is not a perfect oscillation and these transcendental functions reset often. It can sometimes be daily.

    If you do a fast fourier tranform, you can find multiple sinusoidal functions along regression line that we call the trend. If we modeled with odd functions we could be looking at Ax+Bsinx +Csin3x.....ect ect. (you can do with cos also but cos is just a 90 degree shift of sin so it is dependent on where you start your graph and you can make it phase independent) If you do this exercise daily, you will see the values B and C ..............will change all the time making oscillatory analysis incorrect.

    A person cannot use standard trig to model the stock market. Most of what happens is statistical events. However, if you model the stock market with transcendental functions don't use tanx because it does not oscillate.

    You have quite an obsession with that subject.............. Don't you sir? Your are just a fraud. You aren't an engineer. You just have a Cisco certification. The amount of shares you have change all the time and you probably have maybe a hundred shares or two hundred at tops. I am not joking about that..........That is a fact!

    I can understand why you are disgruntled.

    Actually I would guess Cashbar is straight. I don't know anything about those games you are describing smoker.

    Psst.....I would keep them to yourself.

    Im going to bet with the options mm. Low volume shares and high volume options means business as usual on Friday. Late Friday might be a good place to open a long position. I think it will go up on Monday quite nicely.

    Dude I hate to rain on your parade but what is the chart a reversal from? It has been an uptrend since early to mid May. It may have been flat but you cant you have a reversal from a flat market? I would not call it a reversal then.

    Anyway today was half average volume.volume. I am not trying to be mean but it appears as you are looking to charts to see what you want to see. In lieu of anything else, it may go to 68 with earnings coming (That is no guarantee, however). An uptrend reversal does not occur off an uptrend...............maybe a breakout
