  • Price movement is best explained by finite state theory as opposed to continuous time.
  • These strategies are best suited for 401(k) accounts where there are no tax or record keeping issues.
  • 3xWushu is an always in the market 3x Bull/Bear trading technique.
  • 3xWushu integrated with Specter/FF5 Trend Following produces incredible 2 year return numbers.
  • A rational risk assessment process is described using a universally understood finite state language.

We skipped the light fandango, Turned cartwheels 'cross the floor, I was feeling kinda seasick, But the crowd called out for more… A Whiter Shade of Pale - Procol Harum

The Legend

My research is based on the theory that price movement is best explained by finite states instead of continuous time. Finite state theory as applied to equity markets is not well known or understood, probably because the concept is original. This series of articles offers objective proof that finite states are indeed important and it behooves an investor to pay attention to them.

Turn $1 Into $2500 in 10 years was the latest of a series of articles that have demonstrated how a properly constructed logical engine can consistently identify favorable and unfavorable market conditions.

The article showed that Specter/FF5 with Trend Following allowed an investor to double their capital many times during a 10 year period. SOXL was able to double more than an astounding 11 times in less than 10 years.

How much time it takes to double your money is the single most important financial metric. Consistently doubling your money every year is considered impossible. My research has shown that this achievement is possible when using Specter/FF5 buy signals with the 3x Bulls.

The column LCC shows the natural log of the total daily return when the strategies are long. The simplest way to get compound yearly return is to divide the LCC numbers by 10. If the result of the division is .69 or greater, money is at least doubling every year. Note that this is the case with SOXL and TQQQ. Note that the other returns are quite considerable, a compound annual return of over natural log .45 with TNA is the lowest, that converts (EXP Function) to a 57% average annual return.
