  • How Big Money Moves Against Retail 0 comments
    Jan 19, 2013 5:30 AM

    the big boys are moving 95% of the $$, and we are moving 5% of $$,

    1) we need to know how the big boys play their game

    2) why they are disadvantaged compared to us in terms of sheer size and inability to move the market without a counterparty detecting it or acting against them

    3) why we are disadvantaged to them compared to us in terms of information and ability to move price,

    4) also we are far more agile than they are, which means we can dump or shift 250% short/long in one day

    technical analysis is based on human psychology. Human psychology is a game of; assigning purely arbitrary values to items within a social game theory that have no fixed or referential value and submit only to the concept of pure supply and demand.

    That is to say

    "gambling is a fools game because you can never beat the house"

    "but gambling at least is random"

    "the stock market"

    "is NOT random"

    "it is based ONLY on the interactions of human or human-mediated players in time"

    "manipulation is not prevalent in the stock market"

    "it IS the stock market."

    you are betting against other humans, not robots, not pools, but other people who have positions and hedges and counterpositions at a certain price.

    but i am convinced you can beat them by betting against them...
