In the moment of time we have during execution of market performance – data flowing endlessly from all nodal points perscribed by our algorithms; here is ADOBE (NASDAQ:ADBE) – artistically designed and/or engineered using our CXQ Excel model to be calibrated with Marcoaxis – the Buy or Sell graphics.
Sharpening the data’s focus in this case causes a slight distraction – to the viewer’s inner eye – But the essential kernel of information to which we direct your attention is the Call linear/logistic tracking blue line that rose away from the Put – up above it’s placement, simply implemented by the spreadsheet’s functionality.
The pivotal inputs are Entry Price, Ask and Bid.
We earned about $372 (not including commissions) on the Long Call (OCT Strike 105; Premium Limit Order Entry $2.14. (Put Strike was 94 with a Limit Entry at $1.10.)
Volatility – DTE: Call Delta rose to 0.724; Put -0.036. Prob OTM for the Call dropped to 0.2929 while the Put Prob OTM rose to 0.9573.
Trade date was 9/8/2016.
Next up – COSTCO September 28th.
We have a Limit Order for a Long Call on COST OCT (hoping for more volatility given the drop in price over the past few months. Limit Order Entry $152.80 with a target to $157.34 before the earnings report in six days. (Just within the 7 day cycle.)
As with all our posts they are strictly educational. We are grateful for Macroaxis’ assistance in providing their robust Financial Analytics. (The graph posted on the right.
I want to express gratitude to the person who was critical in a harsh response to my posting this sacred symbol in a post related to Forex trading. This graphic is one of my own modifications. Did you notice there are two separate circles with the “S” shape inside, separating the white from black, and in the center the “seed” as it is called?
“What in the hell does that have to do with trading,” the irritated person remarked in a forum.
Well, let’s explore this a little further, in simple terms and use a metaphor to help your mind’s resistance with another example.
Correct perception of the market analytics will pay off. More likely biased thinking will not. In part, this is because, quite simply we have two parties seeking to profit from the other in an investment transaction. Understanding above all, that there is a duality in play when you are trading the market – one is seeking to dominate the other into a subordinate position so as to take the profit.
The “Bid and Ask” logistics is driven by the level of net shares/orders that flow into either side, thus setting a new price that tends to project a trend, either Bullish or Bearish. Whether one trades only assets and/or combines this with options (Call and Puts) the “duality” exists over the price move. However, there is a dynamic phenomenon in play that becomes the Quantum Field.
Or in another way, it reflects the “nooshpere” taken from the writings of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin from Cosmogenesis. Along with Vladimir Vernadsky (Paris, 1926) they foresaw that “..at the root of the primary definition of noosphere is a dual perception: that life on Earth is a unity constituting a whole system.
Okay, the reason I commented on this, is the importance of the last comment: “…a unity constituting a whole system.”
One may not see a metaphysical aspect to Wall Street, yet it is quite embedded during the trading session, because it is based on human behavior (including the algorithmic machines that are programmed by humans). This “behavior” is the influence from many schools of thought, traditional to Quantum psychics. Still, the fundamentals remain: volatility and equilibrium.
So, during intraday trading we have at least two parties, taking the opposite side of the “bet”, in hopes of taking the profit. During this stage, the market is not balanced, and can become more so if there is a sell off or an “All In” market. Yet, given the laws of physics, the volatility eventually creates an equilibrium between the two prices – such as a Delta equilateral outcome between a Call and Put spread when Implied Volatility drives both side’s premiums up.
This is the juncture of Yin/Yang – the balance.
Yin: represents the negative, the passive feminine principle in nature.
Yang: is positive, representing the active, masculine principle in nature.
Yin/Yang: presented together divides the creative fusion of the two cosmic forces; the “S”-line. Within each contain a “seed” of the other.
Dichotomous judgments are perceptual, they are not real. Duality equates to “profit” when you can grasp the conceptual aspects of its empowerment in all things.
Foreign Currency trading involves a dominate and subordinate currency; with respect to derivatives we consider the Put-Call Parity that exemplifies the dynamic system that two aspects empower the equilibrium of Oneness.
My critic said, “That’s stupid,” signing off with the punctuation of pontifically profound pointlessness.
Really? Once we reach the balance between Yin and Yang, we have entered into market’s dharma (noosphere). That translates into a trader being “in the zone” and using their intuitiveness as a natural means of analytical assessment, just as if they were making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
It’s about “evolving” one’s self into someone they want to be: A wealth builder.
Dharma has multiple interpretations and symbolic representations. For example, the ubiquitous weight scale that symbolizes “equal justice for all” (really?) or the New York City Ornamental Iron Workers logo; I can get behind that one.
Then why not the Bull and Bear? Dharma conveys a conceptual scope “to hold, maintain, keep”. It is ironic that Yin and Yang merge with the dharma “that remains constant” is the equilibriumof our market exchanges striving to maintain throughout a trading session, and more over in the macro scale of global economics. The complex influx of trader’s orders, institutional orders, market maker’s price setting (there’s another story regarding that” and High Frequency Trading.
The summation of Yin/Yang and Dharma brings us to the Tao; that contains 10,000 things. This surpasses the Internet of Things and only though the Quantum Frontier can realization be attained. Hmmm, is there an app for this?
In conclusion; my mapping optically with symbolic meaning of our consciousness, the way we think, the duality of negative versus positive, that translates into our individual dharma, eventually leads us to the Tao: The Profit of 10,000 to the tenth power of prosperity.
Be humble. And know that no one is any better anyone else. It’s just a matter of getting all the “noise” and “hype” out of the way so that you can really, really tune into what the market’s telling you – and I guarantee you, you’ll find that gem for the Universe wants you to prosper.
Understanding the human dynamics makes attaining profits with effortless effort.

We live in a House of Main Street. Middle to lower income.
Around our neighborhood, however, we still have evidence of the House of Financial Ruin. My personal summation is this has been cultivated by Congressional policy making for the past forty years. It has been the policy of Congress to maintain a debt-driven economy since the 1980s. The sub-prime mortgage meltdown exposed Wall Street and banking institutions for what they really are: corrupted, greedy financial entities of which Congress protects. No need to go into the details of the water-down attempts to reform banking in America.
Once upon a time, long long ago there was the set-in-stone 3-6-3 model: 3% interest rate on savings, with a 6% mortgage rate, and at 3 PM bankers left to go play golf. Today, the banking model is “interest rates high going out (that is cash), and interest rates low going in” (your banking accounts). And, the 3 PM golf game is played on the banks own golf course.
Whenever I hear millionaire financial media pundits spout out their farcical financial flimflammed advice to Main Street it begs the question: Are they being paid to say this? The redundancy of habitual talking points is ad nausea. They speak the truth, nor provide advocacy for a civil society.
“If everybody just saved money, we would have a a stronger economy,” then turn their powdered make-up face to the other camera and say, “People need to spend more to keep the economy going.” Oddly enough, the burden of economic recovery is put upon the House of Main Street, the American wage earner. The “have’s” keep stumbling and bungling over themselves in ruthless pragmatism.
Well, that kind of thinking leads to 76% of American’s living from paycheck to paycheck, with national median credit card debt of $8000+ per adult working individual. And to add to the misery, the powers and influence now charges a double digit credit card interest rate with the ultimate purpose of taking the American worker’s last penny.
Bottom Line: The current economic infrastructure in America disparages anyone who makes less than $250,000 annually. If you’re making less than $75,000, consider yourself a Rag Picker.
It’s a sad fact that for the past forty years, our constitutional democratically aligned corporate-hood capitalism has become the biggest organized crime syndicate involved with the global economy. Indebtedness is serfdom; car, house, student loans, the basics for living day to day, are all linked to perpetuating the real estate development of sprawling suburbanite House of Debt owned the Federal Reserve.
That’s why, I think on some subconscious level, I’ve been hooked on the 2013 American Netflix version of the 1990 British version of author Michael Dobbs “House of Cards”, a former Chief of Staff at Parliament’s Conservative Party headquarters in London. Dobbs, seasoned with his own personal experience of Britain’s Parliamentary scandals, penned a close knitted political thriller that is timeless. The story line carries injections of a Charles Dickens subplot of what is unjust in this world, inserting intrigue in the vein of Winston Churchill’s belief “…if you’re going through hell, keep going”; ingeniously basing the structure upon a Shakespearean hybrid of Macbeth and Richard III. Machiavellian oversight governs political motives, “…each of them lobbying for what they think is most important”. The Fourth Estate is left to asking many questions to identify the deceptions, accordingly, though evidence doesn’t guarantee certainty.
What adds to the theatrical ambiance is the “breaking of the fourth wall”, a technique of providing an “aside insight” by the main protagonist/antagonist – either from the lips of Francis Urqhart in the British version or Francis Underwood in the American version, is the kind of media speak we need regarding the truth of our socioeconomic status.
Let me repeat this statistic in case it didn’t sink in before; 76% live paycheck to paycheck, an element of our own political thriller. I wouldn’t be surprised if in Francis Underwood’s resolve to end entitlements with his “America Works” policy wouldn’t make common sense. Or, Tony Robbins figured it out what is American’s greatest weakness: Not managing their money correctly.
Imagine if, our standards of entitlement were based on something more democratic instead of Congressional corporate-personhood, that our entitlements were based on a law abiding free-market that insured accountability for legal transgressions when it came to fiduciary duty by financial institutions and fund managers; that each adult earning individual in this country would be promised an adequate wage that met the scales of economy, so that each would have the means to save money for “retirement” that is not tied to Wall Street’s unpredictability, coupled with interest rates that reflected the bank’s obligation to reward their customers deposits – a formulary based on the percentage of the bank’s “hedge fund” speculations in correlation to the depositors account’s capital?
I loved the fact that President Francis Underwood, based on Shakespeare’s Richard of Gloucester, declared a state of emergency in America because of the lack of “good paying jobs”. Unscrupulous,
Otherwise, “You might very well think that; I couldn’t possibly comment.” President Francis Underwood
