Math is the language of God

A commentor from gg’s blog, DB, emailed Martin Armstrong about a trend in Pi. Click here. Very interesting.

  1. Perfect! I actually have questions about what DB wrote. DB … if you could help me better understand … I’m hoping that you could provide detail to what you did.

    1) “Ihave been looking at the eight cycles of mini rallies and mini corrections we have had in the S&P 500 for the past year or so (eight cycles from 2012-11-16 through 2014-02-05).” Comment: OK, I get this.

    2) ” I tallied up the total days (305) and was calculating the average days per rally (25.8) and the average days per decline (12.4). ” Comment: What clicked in your mind to even do this analysis? What was your initial thoughts in even doing this?

    3) “However, I then decided to calculate the ratio of each decline period to the preceding rally period to find the average decline ratio: 0.56875.” Comment: I’m poor at math. Can you show me the actual equation that you used?

    4) “Finally, I decided to do the same thing to calculate the advance ratio, dividing each rally period by the preceding decline period.” Comment: I have NO idea was an advance ratio is. Please explain your thinking here as well if you don’t mind.

    I appredciate any help you can provide DB. I often walk away from Armstrong’s comments with more questions than I started with. I’ve learned alot, but since my background is in IT, many of the financial discussions leave me with the feeling that I’m in the back of the class.
