Will AI Kill Financial Markets?

“Watcha gonna do when they come for you? Bad bots, bad bots…”

This morning we wander from Big Data, and Fat AI to the concepts that may birth Thin AI and then venture into some speculation about how that may impact future markets.

But first a few headlines, including Housing Starts, and why Ures truly didn’t execute his sell order Tuesday and remains long the market…

The View from Oklahoma

Elaine and I are in Oklahoma this weekend to meet with Robin Landry, who as I’ve told you many times, is one of the best long wave (and Elliott Wave) gurus out there.

Because of the road trip, our report this morning will focus on just one thing:  How the  markets are doing exactly what we forecast and are working toward new highs.

But the real story is why and what to expect thereafter….

Multifactorial Collapse

What might make the pending Second Depression worse than the first is that we could have multiple systems crashing at once.

Not just a change of technology causing layoffs and bankruptcies in the farming set.
Oh, no, something much grander. 

Picture terrorism, energy, housing, and pensions blowing up as a kind of grand mal seizure…that’s the scent we’re on today.

Limits to Complexity

Yes, there are.

True, many of the world’s problems can be addressed – for a while – by adding layers of complexity.  No question.

But how many such layers of complexity can be “piled on?”  That’s the rub…

Toss this in with the charts and it’s a nice summer morning of deep thoughts… (How’s this for a to-the-point opening, eh?)

A Software-Directed Life

What do you need in a home that is full and offers far too many activities? (We call our place an ACH – activity centered home.)  Too much maintenance and such, as well?
You need software, of course.  Today we look at some of the shortcomings of various programs out there…

First, though, we track down the meme “climate change” and discover it is not (in some cases) coming from the scientists, but from the PR departments and news orgs…like that’s a surprise.  But a clear example worth considering presents itself…

AmRev 2: Echoes of England?

As we delve into history this morning, we found it particularly ominous that democrats in Washington are again/still attempting to remove president Trump from office.

But it is not to be unexpected, given how the lsser known English Civil Wars came about.  Trump is clearly in the Charles 1 role as tensions mount.

That and some notes on the summer rally in the ChartPack this morning as we roll into the long holiday weekend which will slowly melt into jobs data Thursday and Friday of this coming week…

Life in the “After-Crash”

This morning we try to sketch up what Life in the After-Crash will probably look like next year, and the year after that.

This as America seems increasingly likely to hit our all-time-high stock market window August 21-24th.  From there, it will be two things:  First of which is “Look out below!
But the other is “What’s it gonna be like?” 

We tackle that after headlines and charts…and you’ll learn why the phrase “r-star” will play a prominent role in our economic future.

Qjuest for Hidden Variables

Want to get rich?

Want to find a new way to play poker better (and/or longer)?

You, my friend, might wish to consider a new hobby:  The Quest for Hidden Variables.

Which we shall discuss with some application notes after headlines and charts this fine summer morning…then off to play some poker with the idea of learning about when to take the money and run.

It’s the Wall Street version of “…know when to fold ’em…”
