musical note E, 1896, 1987, 2007 and now

What a great day yesterday … was working thru what my wife calls the “man flu,” it was pouring rain and nothing but great college football and logs.  I know, that was geeky but during half-time of the Navy vs AF game I just sat down in front of my computer and said “self, let’s see if music is really involved in the market.”  I think it is …

  • I have never done this before, what you see is the result of starting from the all time low of 28.48 on 08/08/1896 some 43,250 calendar days ago as of this posting and simply “did the math.”
  • Background:
    • the frequency of a string is:
      • inversely proportional to the square root of its length and
      • directly proportional to square root of it’s tension
      • here is a chart of the notes and the ratio’s and their inverses


  • Here is the math:
    • 28.48 LN = 3.3492
    • 3.34492 + ratio of equal octave scale = XXX
    • anti-log of XXX = YYY
    • plot YYY on long term monthly of DJIA


  • For example:
    • NOTE E: ratio 1.259921 and the inverse 1/1.259921 = .7937005
    • 3.3492+.7937005 = 4.1429005
    • 4.1386205 anti-log = 13896
      • interesting to note how close that was to the top in 2007
      • some 20 years prior the same “E” was wreaking havoc – here’s the math
        • 3.3492+.07937005 (note the  number stays the same – JUST SHIFT THE DECIMAL POINT) = 3.42857005
        • anti-log of 3.42857005 =2683

is it any coincidence that the musical note E was found in 1987 and 2007 from the all time low in 1896?


So what does this mean?  Well, take a look at the chart … in 1997 the market came up and started another octave and has been banging in/around C-E for the past 20+ years. Note, the market did not CLOSE below the start of the octave “C” in 2009 … if I was in charge (and trust me I’m not) I sure think this market naturally wants to finish it’s symphony, so to speak, so is 22K out of the question?  Who knows but I’m certainly going to be aware of these long term targets from 1896 as a guide.

Here’s a look on the way down …


Happy Hunting and study up …
