 Do you see the dancer turning clockwise or anti-clockwise? clickme I see her turning clockwise. Only once was i able to make the switch and see her turning anti-clockwise.

I can make her switch by my imagination. To do that I focus a point below her feet such that I still notice the rhythm of her movements. Then I imagine that she turns anti-clockwise, and she will.

Once my eyes are attached to her, I cannot make her change direction. I have to repeat step one, unlock and then I can make her turn clockwise.

Maybe it works because I am patient enough after many years of marriage.

This is a fun post...Thanks Big Mike.... You should sell your line generator to some expensive trade site....Funny.... use a random # generator to come up with 4 new lines every day bounded by 2x daily ATR or something....

 The object of the thread, for me, is to educate. I have made it clear the lines are random. Now if price seems to interact with these lines, you can imagine how people would feel if they did not know they were random. What if they were told it was an indicator with a fancy name and 200 lines of code? They start to "believe" it has predictive value. That is the point. Education. Open your mind type thinking. Evaluate how you are looking at your own charts and how you describe the interactions of price and objects on your chart. Mike

@bobwest, thank you very much. I hope more people will understand thanks in part to your post.

This is a major milestone people need to deal with and overcome, it's an obstacle to most people's trading in my opinion, especially technical traders.

Now, exclusively relying on first and second order greeks for market information. Unsurprisingly, I found this is the most interesting and thought provoking post you and the community have ever addressed. The absurdities and sensibilities of one's own mind are paradoxically challenged and rewarded by participating in the experiment itself, regardless of one's speculations. Without ever testing these possibilities in such a pronounced and definitive manner, my hypothesis is consistent with the question posited. My conclusions are that the market operates somewhere in the middle. Our challenge arises in determining when, and when not, to apply "rules" to market behavior, interpretation, and prediction. In other endeavors, history is a great teacher. When applied to market "theory", not so much!
