It's very common to incorporate what I'd term as technical analysis indicators, like you've occasionally mentioned, as factors/predictors/features in computerised/algorithmic trading models. Could be viewed as pretty old school actually. A lot of the black-box trading systems one can purchase do this.

See for instance the market timing section on the wiki algo trading page or the following from the Investopedia page.

most interesting that this vid was made, and all this was unfolding pre-corona ...from the uber woke dw tv no less...

worth a look just for the rather repulsive tourist takeover of cambodia at the beginning, but the whole thing, both parts, are well worth a look

not least the sri lanka part, where it really is hard to believe their politicians sold them out so so much...

aren't the adb, imf, and UN type organisations supposed to avert such gross incursions, manipulations, and just flat out colonisation actually?

oh that's right... china owns the UN too...

interesting the policy changes that have come belatedly... but the billionaires are still selling out the west big big time, with some major within china deals from apple and co. getting publicity just last week

time these billiinaire bastards were held to account!

their resistance to change, and shameless attraction to an easy buck is just plain disgusting

Pretty stark discrepancy between the boards ridden by locals vs boards ridden by tourists. The mid length twin fashion has largely been avoided here except for on the gheyer point breaks. Yet the influx of swell chasers and holiday makers has shown a flood of channel bottom twin mid lengths in powerful waves ala Torren Martyn.

Considering that they have appear to have zero functional advantages over more conventional equipment, beyond the wave catching attained by the mini mal volume and outline , I forecast a rapid decline in their use.

If the waves of punters are sporting these behemoths next year I’ll be very surprised.

Thats insane, Joe is huge now.

I think his success is just being able to let people speak and not stage or censor things like most media do, and with his interviews at up to 3 hrs long people get a good say on his podcast.

He also has all kinds of people on and he isn't overly judgemental on others, he can totally disagree with someone even on things like political views but still treat them with respect or even become friends with them.

IMHO that's how we all should be, i see quite a few people here that seem to think that if you share different political or social views you need to hate that person, i get frustrated with others views, but as long as people treat me with respect even if they have totally opposing views i dont feel the need to hate on them.

What a farce the Djokovic affair is. Kinda sums up the last coupla years for me.

Entirely reasonable and normal that they had a process for medical exemptions, and from all reports, the one they had in place was fair and rigorous. So Djokovic gets in. Many didn’t. A bad look, and a figurative kick in the teeth for Victorians on several fronts to be sure. But certain to be largely forgotten, except for some theatrical boos, once the tennis starts.

There’s the inevitable backlash and Morrison says it’s not his responsibility. It’s all down to the states, or at least one of them. Then all of a sudden he’s out there in hi vis holding the hose. I reserve the right to put him on the next plane home etc! Huh? Well, Jenny has a way of clarifying things, and she told me the RAT business wasn't flying, and that the only way I should look at this issue was through the lens of – politics! And the polls!

If Novak hadn’t tweeted that he was on the way, and just come in quietly, he’d have been through customs with everyone none the wiser. He’d be happily hitting balls on the practice court at Rod Laver, just like the other five or six already here, who went through the same process as him and got their legit exemptions.

That it was a tweet that provoked his undoing just adds to the ridiculousness.

I reckon watching tennis on hardcourts is boring as fuck*, but I hope he wins his appeal, wins the Oz open, drops a brown eye at Morrison et al, and then sets about using his considerable clout within the ATP to turn what was once the Australian Open into the Chinese Open.

We are an embarrassment.

Super, I told you all long ago how this thing was engineered as a biological warfare weapon. Whether it was released on purpose or an accident is debatable. But it has helped cull the population, and some sections of humanity are benefitting greatly from it as large Pharma and their shareholders are making squillions from governments all around the world. We know that some seem to love war to make a profit, this is a health war, not a military war and funded by the taxpayers with their dollars, and some with their lives. The solution, a remembrance of your divine heritage. On the 2/2/22 Nassim Haramein will release his Physics paper that shows everything is energy fluctuating from the Zero Point field (Plasma) including humans. Your telomeres are little whirlpools, get them to spin correctly and they communicate effectively with the blueprint of perfect health that resides in the field. Watch this space. When you remember who and what you really are, you cannot be manipulated by anyone or led down a garden path by false beliefs and their cause and effect mythologies.

Yep, you can pretend/believe your are not a divine being and your experience will be as such.

Impressive dave your about the only person who tells it how it is. Only difference from me
is that I will state the Chinese rats deliberately released this biological germ warfare as a
calculated attacked on the world with wave after wave of new viruses which continue to
destabilising the world. Now being backed up by their strategically placed bases they are
setting up as we sleep around the globe especially in the pacific. Unfortunately Australia
with its unlimited resources and huge land mass is number one on their hit list. With
political correctness ruling the western world I just hope the politicians and the citizens
of the world wake up to this before its too late. Might already be too late.
Remember they let let Hitler run amuck for too long and look where that ended up.

"Mind-Blowing New Fossil Site Found in The 'Dead' Heart of Australia"

The fact that the vaccines have done nothing to stop the transmission of Covid in Australia is never mentioned. More than 90 per cent of Australians aged 12 and over are fully vaccinated yet there are over 1000 new Covid cases per day per million. Compare that with India where only 44 per cent of people are vaccinated and there are only 13 new Covid cases per million per day. Or Japan, where even more people are vaccinated than Australia and there are only 3 daily cases per million. What is the secret of these Asian nations, and others such as Indonesia where there is less than one case per million per day?

The head of Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration Professor John Skerrit insists that the success of all three countries in reducing Covid to virtually zero has nothing to do with their use of ivermectin. Just before Christmas he warned people not to try to import the drug, which would be seized at Australia’s border.

Meanwhile, in Varanasi, in India this week, teams of workers are distributing Covid medicine kits to rural areas as a preventative measure. They include 12mg tablets of ivermectin, the antibiotic azithromycin, Vitamins D, C, B, zinc and paracetamol. In Indonesia, the government has been distributing free ivermectin and vitamins to Covid patients since July. In Japan, the chairman of the Tokyo Medical Association Dr Haruo Ozaki recommended the use of ivermectin to treat Covid in August. https://www.spectator.com.au/2022/01/novaks-ace/

Hey evosurfer, I think you're right on the mark!

But don't worry, the Western world is well onto it and quite advanced down the curve here, with for instance the Aukus pact, the security pact we signed with Japan just this week, the Australia-India Strategic Partnership, the activities and jockeying for position of the US in the South China Sea aimed at aligning all the border stakeholder countries with the US and containing China geographically, the US trying to get into Taiwan in its final piece of the geographical puzzle, etc.

The recent pact with Japan is very important and symbolic since apart from the US going back to the 60s, Australia is the only other country Japan has a military pact with.

Behind the smokescreen of covid, there is a huge amount of strategic manoeuvring and positioning going on between the US, UK, Australia, Japan, Canada, and other countries, all aimed at politically, geographically, economically, technologically, etc, blocking, surrounding, squeezing, containing, and basically strangling the crap out of China's rise to global dominance.

And let me share with you part of a conversation I had with some Chinese/Hong Kong colleagues this last week in a meeting for the upcoming work year. We got to talking about all this stuff and the West's overall activities and attitude towards China, and this is what they relayed to me:

Changing political systems and dynasties aside, the Chinese culture and civilisation has been in continuous existence for over 5000 years. And not only that, but apart from the usual border annoyances, disputes and tiffs pretty well all countries have with their neighbours, the ground and soil on which Chinese civilisation sits is completely undisputed: they've been there for over 5000 years, it's undeniably their land and soil.

Contrast this with say Australia, the US, Canada, New Zealand, etc, i.e. the British Empire countries. Taking Australia for instance, our land is completely disputed. It's not ours. It never was. It never will be. We only claimed and stole it from the Aboriginal Australians by slaughtering them and also making up and fabricating our own international laws that were rigged in our favour to make the land appear uninhabited and thus enabling us to steal it from them by a magic trick.

Not only that, but the West has had plenty of goes at China in history as well. We've tried to get in there and fully do a number on them and exploit and oppress them a number of times in history - well, that's all we do when it comes to China. We've even been to war with China on their own soil, which is something China has never done in history - waged war on another country on that country's soil. We even took Macau and Hong Kong from China in war, and only relatively recently gave them back. Read up on the Opium Wars sometime.

Did you know the main driver and motivation for the path and journey China has been on for the past 100 or so years is their treatment and exploitation at the hands of the West? China's interactions with the West in history is deeply etched in the minds of every Chinese person, and is engrained in their minds from the very first day at preschool. The Chinese will never again let us do what we have historically done to them. They are even taught the above perspective on British Imperialist history in terms of how we stole our land from its rightful owners - the original Aboriginal inhabitants - largely by slaughtering them.

And now the West is already waging war on China in every way possible, apart from direct military conflict, in order to contain and strangle China and stop its rise to power. And the West criticises China for all kinds of things the West doesn't really know anything about or understand, or know the proper history of: from Hong Kong, Taiwan, the South China Sea, Tibet, Xinjiang etc.

The Chinese are just sitting there looking at our continual disgraceful treatment and attempted exploitation of them, which keeps happening to this day, in the context of thousands of years of history, and are just shaking their heads and saying what a bunch of complete fuckwits we are.

They cannot work out why we just repeat the same patterns of oppressing and exploiting behaviour and never learn from our mistakes or past behaviours or from history itself.

The cannot work out why we don't realise that China can see straight through the West's actions: that they're just motivated by fear of China's rise, containment of China, and getting pissed off that the West can't export US style democracy and capitalism to exploit that massive consumer market.

They cannot work out why the West does not try to get along and work together with China, and treat China with respect and as an equal, accepting their differences like China seeks to accept the West's, for the common good of humanity

I wouldn't be surprised if China doesn't become the dominant power and hegemon in the world, and then ship us all back to the mother country and give this land back to the Aboriginal Australians, the original inhabitants and rightful owners.
