“All through time, people have basically acted and re-acted the same way in the market as a result of: greed, fear, ignorance, and hope – that is why the numerical formations and patterns recur on a constant basis.” – Jesse Livermore
I wondered if Jesse Livermore believed that the patterns were numerical, why weren’t we using math to define them?
Why weren’t we using math to solve the problem?
The analysis used by most people typically uses derivatives of what really matters, price. As price is the final arbiter. Traditional analysis does not always represent what actually happened. Creating something that was purely mathematical, would have to be more beneficial. Because something that actually happened would have to be more useful than something that may not have happened at all.
