Good morning. Nothing like a read of the stool, and the smell of napalm, in the morning to get one's blood flowing.
Reminding all of you that I don't know shit but I believe that the market will have a weak end of year/new year rally. A retest of the highs seems unlikely, but you never know.
Adam Hamilton is also one of my favorites, he has bee so accurate it's scary. While he is hedging his position a bit here, I believe he is not convinced the top is in due to the VIX still being somewhat neutral. That's how I read it anyway.

Torah man, you can find the explanation of what a "weighted alpha" is and how BarChart uses it there.
I am not sure I understand your second question. The page I linked to simply lists all stocks in the NDX, sorted by their decreasing weighted alpha values. The actual weighting these stocks have as parts of the NDX does not enter into play in any way here. Or did you mean something else?

GTN, you have misunderstood Hamilton's latest article. He is convinced that the top is in - despite the ambiguity of the VIX signal. The recent 8% fall confirms it, he says - never before has a bear market rally recovered off a drop of more than 7%.

Speaking of the smell of NAPALM in the morning-Friday's Commitment of traders report shows the commercials (DA BOYZ) increasing their SHORT position on SPX by 16,000 contracts for the week-the small traders (SHEEPIE) increased their long positions-Here sheepie, sheepie, sheepie-gutting time! NO XMAS RALLY! Trade Safe!

GTN, also re-read his article on p/c ratio being better at calling tops and VIX better at calling bottoms. The former pegged Dec 2 as a major high. Besides, there are plenty-o other indicators that say Dec 2 was it.

Costco will see and feel the effects but is in a better position then the traditional supermarket chains to weather the storm... I guess it boils down to their DEBT load or compound cost of existance... are they in hock up to their eye balls?
They are distributors and are highly scaleable...
"We are completely dependant on the commercial banks. Someone has to borrow every dollar we have in circulation, cash or credit. If the banks create ample synthetic money (at the request of the consumer) we are prosperous; if not, we starve. We are absolutely without a permanent money system.... It is the most important subject intelligent persons can investigate and reflect upon. It is so important that our present civilization may collapse unless it becomes widely understood and the defects remedied very soon." --Robert H. Hemphill, Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank,1938...

when i looked at that page we were seeing the top 100, and there was a bottom 100 also shown, so i did not think these were the ndx stocks.
i found that later so i originally thought they were and wanted to know how the ndx number is derived, just the sum or are some weighted??
am i missing something about your original post pointing to the ndx??
Posted 15 December 2002 - 05:04 PM
i just saw my mistake, i ended up on a different page and then asked a question.when i looked at that page we were seeing the top 100, and there was a bottom 100 also shown, so i did not think these were the ndx stocks.
great site for bottom fishing though, i will repeat the link for everyone again>

Earlier today BUDDA-posted one of the great rants of all time-DOC-was so impressed he moved it immediately to a place of honor in the Stool Hall of Fame. But I would suggest the significance of the rant was overlooked by all. Budda our color commentator-who daily reminds us of the power of DA BOYZ and GREENSPAM and their ability to levitate the corpse at will-has gone SHORT the market and LONG silver. BUDDA has said to GREENSPAM you wizened old plick you can't do it to us anymore! This is akin to Mark becoming a priest or the End closing his S&P straddle. This market is truly doomed! Futures just opened DOWN-Thank you-BUDDA-Trade Safe!

The move down from the August high is an exact triple zigzag. Triple zigzag are corrective moves not impulsive or at least by G Neely’s definition. If you go back in my submissions, it is shown there. Of course, the wave endings can be manipulated to get a slightly larger wave three. However, that does not meet the requirement that one wave should extend. G Neely states that the extended wave should be 1.618 * the next longest wave. However, I am willing to accept 1.382 in certain circumstance.
In Elliott’s original work, the third wave was not allowed to be the shortest. One wave had to extend but as far as I can see, he did not define by how much.
Putting it all together, I suspect there is no alternative to the fall from August being a “B” wave.
The “B” wave having taken the July low out, suggests that the FLAT below the HEAD & SHOULDERS neckline is an IRREGULAR FLAT.
Neely describes IRREGULAR FLATS as common wave two formations.
I have labeled it as such, that is wave two in a larger three.

Subject: Zoran's post of Dec 14, 2002
I do have a question however. How can the move from the August high be a B wave when it is clearly a 5?
I count it as a B wave as well but, i have ignored the impulsiveness of it. Probably not a good idea. Your thoughts?
For people who look at e-waves and could not see anything but an impulse for the move from the august highs to the october lows.
This answer to me from zoran makes alot of sense.
It allows for us to be wave three.
The question know is where in wave three are we.
I believe we are in 2b of three with 2c to follow and then wave three of three down from Jan.ish to mid to late march.
You have no idea how i have been wrestling with the move which i called B.
I hope this helps my fellow stoolies.
NONE of what I type, should be taken as financial advice.
And when you loose control, you'll reap the harvest that you've sown
And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone
And it's too late to loose the weight you used to need to throw around
So have a good drown, as you go down, alone
Dragged down by the stone.
