That's fine, if you wish so; then, human has a body where mind is another faculty.

Do you believe there is a soul [or self] existing in human ?

I did most of my life, until I came across the concept of Anattha. Which is inadequately translated as non-self. My understanding simply put is there is a self but an ever changing one. I presently don't have the capacity to grasp/realize it, but it seems quite plausible to me.

That was the only way I could answer that. Are we still on track here ? Suspect

OK.
So you think there is a self which is ever changing;
that's fine.

Let's call that changing is the change of the status of the self [or the mind]

Now, do you think there is a connection between that change and the body ?

I mean, is there any influence by the body on that status of the self?

In other words, can the body [or its faculties] change the status of the self?

All Right!

Let's review our progress once more;

+ We are to find some way to catch tops and bottom of the market.
+ Tops and bottoms are caused by market movements, so we need to find about market movements.
+ Market movements are caused by money supply, so we need to find about money supply.
+ Money supply is caused by investors and shareholders, so we need to find about investors and shareholders.
+ Investors and shareholders consist of the species 'human', so we need find about human.
+ Human consists of two parts; body and self, so we need to find about body and self.
+ Self is a function of the body, so we need find more about the human body.

Are you with me so far here?
Are there any hesitations to continue further from here in this direction?

Last one, Self is a function of the body is a bit confusing. But for the objective of this exercise I assume that we need not dwell further on that point.

Please continue.

In that case, let's say the behavior of the 'self' is influenced by the body.

So, in order to understand the whole process, we need to further study the 'body'.

Now, what do you know about this 'body'?
Like self is associated with the mind; the body is associated with matter.
Agreed?

Then, what do you know about matter building up this body?

What is the most abundant matter inside a human body which makes about 50% of its weight?

Brilliant!!!

We can make a mild hypothesis here, since human is 50% made up of water; if we knew how water would behave, we would know how human would behave 50% accurately.

Would you agree?

if so,

If we knew water, we would know 50% of human.
If we knew human, we would know, investors and+++

+++we would know 50% of Tops and Bottoms.

Sounds any interesting ?

Ok.

Now we are ready to start!

On one end we have the market;
On the other end, we have water.


Let's test our knowledge a little on both ends first.

Two questions:

1. What will happen to a share price when there is a continuous supply of cash ?

2. What will happen to the temperature of water when there is a continuous supply of heat ?

I am asking before that.

What would happen to the level of price / temperature.

There you are!

Money to market is like Heat to water

When supplied, levels will go up.


Now,

Take some water in a sub zero temperature [I mean some deeeeep freezed ice].

Put it into some large enclosed vessel [big pot].

And put it on constant fire.
And measure the temperature of water.

What do you think you will observe?

Will the temperature rise steadily up?
Or will there be any kind of pattern ?

Will rise but not steadily. A pattern with an abrupt rise in latter stages.

I need an exact answer with explanations preferred.

What is the pattern of water when steadily heated from -100 C degrees to +200 C degrees ?

[If you wish, first, you may read more about this under "Heating curve of water"]

I think there is no way to find the bottom and top. There is no way we could identify fake orders , fake crossings, ... What we could do is to prepare our self for the best investment considering all the legal options.

1. Does the stock market / share has lowest PE among different investment options
2. What if I couldn't sell the stock for 5 years ? Does the stock has the long term stability ?
3. How the stock respond to political senarios in world and in the country

If investors confident about above factors they will put money.

Buddy,

We are not talking if it is possible to find T&Bs;
We are talking of how to harness them here.
