Why I Sold My Dow Position Earlier Today


Recommended Posts

    It's time for some gin, lemonade and calculus !! I have only slept for 1.5 hours,  ( if that ) in the last 24 hours. 

         Nah , I didn't have a party last night!  It's more of a function of tinkering with my analytical tools , plus we got a-lot going on at the office atm.   New systems installed   today. Therefore,  a-lot of skills need relearning. Result ? Chaos. Didn't get to eat the Chinese I saved from the prior nights meal for lunch !  It wasn't all bad. Big-Bossman came down  to the pharmacy and we had a good laugh. I like this man. He tells you what he requires off you and provides the support and tools to get it done...... Sexy. Effing. ****.    

       Anyway we are here to talk about the #DOW. What a drop eh ? When I refreshed it this morning ( now yesterday)  whist listening to fire flame  . 

I noticed a change in the minute by minute cadence, of it's returns with respect to where they settled , when compared within plus or minus one standard deviation....... And...... me no likey.  See for yourself. ( time stamp highlighted)

   The bottom= price chart green and red bars are +-1 standard deviations, the black line on the top chart is the .....umm.... lets call it the " volatility error calculation " Forgive me I haven't got the foggiest idea of what to call this thing seeing as  it didn't exist until i made it up in my head after a few months of consuming copious quantities of caffeinated products and many sleepless nights,  trying to teach myself a different way to think about complex systems of which no one really has a clue about . Bar "economists". .....Of-course.

 It's just a visualisation tool I use as a way to time and refine my trade idea executions. The idea behind this tool is based on the relationship between price and vol.  Price up , vol down. As the error expands / rises higher prices tend to come down and vice versa. In normal circumstances a "range bound volatility error"  is common. However, I noticed the error kept getting larger and larger and larger.  And for anyone who has studied or not studied volatility regime shifts, vol has different regimes ( short term / episodic  vs  longer term/persistent/ trending)  these shifts happen in short time frames and are responsible for significant market moves. vThey are also  ones you do not want to be on the wrong side of ( remember my portfolio was on the receiving end of a Mike Tyson-level punch in Q1  2021 when I thought this endeavour was a cake walk😆  oh to be young and silly....

 Any way, from my observations, rising vol ( rapidly falling error spreads or increasingly negative spreads  presage  drawback in prices.. FACT....... No no no no no I didn't make this up. The data is freely available and  you can do this analysis yourself.  When I run the calculations and chart the output thats what I have consistently observed. I saw  this occurring  in multiple time frames in sort of a " fractal cascade" . So I got out. Thankfully it was the right decision to make.  Not bad for a self taught  non finance educated pharmacist ehhh ???  

Thats it folks. Tired. Off to bed.

    • As a result of the precipitous drop in crypto prices, fewer people are willing to trade in high-risk digital coins. Since the beginning of 2018, Coinbase's MTU has been cut by 20%. Investors are curious about whether users continued to move away from the platform despite the slowdown in the downtrend towards the end of Q2 since any rebound could be seen as an early sign of recovery. The earnings report for the second quarter shows that the company's net revenue dropped 35% from Q1 levels, primarily due to a precipitous drop in retail transaction revenue. Anyway, to distress from all the crypto stuff, you can just bet on the World Cup and check on odds brasil copa do mundo.
