Stock Market Technical Indicators – 26 August 2015

26 August 2015

My stock market indicators once again indicated stocks were getting sold off, and then they bounced. Long term is starting to get oversold – only judging by levels we’ve seen since this bull market began in 2009.  I don’t have data for this going back to 2007-2008 so it’s tough to know what it will…

Why You Should Care about Amino Acids

21 August 2015

I’m sure if you’re interested in Ray Peat’s ideas on metabolism, you’ve read that the amino acids cysteine, methionine, and tryptophan may reduce thyroid peroxidase output.  Peroxidase is associated with preventing high levels of hydrogen peroxide from accumulating in the body and causing gray hair and other problems as it is cytotoxic.  It’s actually really…

State of the Stock Market – 21 August 2015

21 August 2015

It’s been a while since I showed the composite indicator for the stock market.  It’s finally getting back to extreme levels seen in late 2014 and before that 2011 and 2012. Medium term is heading back to oversold levels – meaning we’re getting closer to a decent entry point.   Short term is heading lower…

Long term continues to trend negatively.  Slightly oversold. Medium term is slightly oversold.   Short term is neutral. VIX is already too low to provide much fuel for a rally if one begins here.  Seasonally, weakness could continue until November.

Do You Need a Shower Filter?

07 August 2015

I’ve read a lot of testimonies about the miraculous healing properties of cold showers. “They’ll increase your testosterone” “They’ll kick start your metabolism by burning tons of calories to stay warm” “You’ll feel amazing after” Or the classic with this line of thinking “People didn’t shower in hot water as cavemen”  Or heavily chlorinated water….

State of the Market – 6 August 2015

06 August 2015

Short term is neutral, and it’s recent peak was lower than the previous peak.  Potentially a bearish sign and leaving plenty of room to fall. Medium term is no longer oversold.  It is neutral, and slightly bouncing which could be viewed as a positive sign.  Either way, it is not oversold so this is not…

State of the Market – 26 July 2015

26 July 2015

Long term is below 50% for the first time since 2012. Medium term is slightly oversold at around 40%.   Short term is again oversold.  We’ll need to monitor it’s behavior at these levels to see if it bounces higher or lower than the previous point.   The same applies to the medium term indicator….

Stress Revisited

10 July 2015

It’s been two years since I first wrote “The Eat as Much as Possible Diet.” and eight months since I wrote my last health related article.  I’ve heard from many people saying what a miracle it has been to their lives.  Better sleep, less hypothyroid symptoms, better hair, skin, nails, better mood, re-found personalities.  I somewhat…
