Yes, there is complexity masquerading as chaos and within there are definitive patterns. Even the Maya discovered time. They studied the heavens, as did the Babylonians. Economists seem to be unable to observe patterns and they claim anyone who does must be the devil.

  • Chart patterns repeat. They repeat and repeat year in and year out. The charts of the stock market today and those of 100 years ago are exactly the same. I am talking about the patterns that repeat. The reason is brutally simple. Man has not changed. His reasons for buying and selling are two basic emotions – fear and greed. The chart shows them clearly. It is up to the trader, oops investor, to learn them.

  • About 99% of people who buy stock think about how much it is going to go up. Very few ask their broker where to sell if it goes down. Furthermore when it does go up how do you take you profit?
