Merry Christmas

Not much to be merry about but it’s the tradition so let’s be merry anyway. I tend to like end of the year because I tend to get moody and reflective which usually leads to creative thoughts.


I am refreshing my understanding of statistics. While it’s not my favorite part of math, I need to firm up what I know for an idea I am tinkering with. I spent most of last week revisiting NLP (natural language parsing) technology and business. In summary, nothing revolutionary technology-wise but blooming business intelligence application has fertilized the market wide and far. It’s still an imperfect technology but, thankfully, my interest is well within practical range.


Since my last post, base level moved up a level from DOW 8000 to DOW 8400 and less predictable (to me, at least). So I’ll be watching more and trading less except when extremes are reached.


I am hoping to have some news to share in January.
