Linked-In and Math …

Folks, couple disclaimers before I start this blog:

  • if you’ve been following me OR your new, you’ll know that I don’t make it a habit of doing the “could have would have should have.” Most of  my posts (a majority) are real time – long before price ever gets to the targeted area or pattern
  • I did a posts on $LNKD almost two years ago.  Here’s the posts:

LNKD count

So, until the acquisition by MSFT was announced yesterday, I had forgotten about it. (I trade/focus on spot FX and like to look at stocks for friends and when asked).

Looks like the BUY worked great and we went up to a new high and hit exactly at the target using the signal reversal candle from the all time low.  Michael Jenkins (a mentor and friend at taught me this technique.  It’s pretty darn accurate and HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE FUNDAMENTALS.  Here’s the chart:


I know, you won’t believe (should you?) it’s basis is the zodiac, solstices, music, the great pyramid (which is proven to actually have 8 sides).  If you’ll allow me to expand you’ll find that one single weekly candle contains the “DNA” of the upcoming move. EVERYTHING is based on that. In this case we used 1/8 increments of the LENGTH of that candle to project UP (long before price ever got there).  When the “first” projection is done, then we simply double it and do another one …. note, when it went thru the first, it came back down and kissed it and took off.  Key here ..the EXACT high was determined by the DNA candle highlighted in the chart above.

Now, I’m in the “could have would have” area but I just wanted to go over the numbers because its a good discipline and also reinforces the “pattern recognition” capability …

Here’s why the low came in where it did … all the numbers are based on sacred geometry and music:


so, at 23.6 BILLION purchase price it gapped up big (and why wouldn’t it) Well, guess what, it gapped up right in line w/ as it always had … a blue dashed measured move:


so, where are we now? Kind of in no mans land, if you ask me.  EVERYTHING has been pretty spot on and the MOVE UP was amazing.  I’ll simply wait for the next pattern to try a BUY or a SELL. Because, in the end, I really don’t know OR care for that matter which way it goes.

Just wanted to provide some perspective on the patterns and numbers and how I have no idea of the fundamentals of any of this …


about that LNKD chart from Sept 2013 …

CLIFF NOTES: short term option play expecting support to hold for the gap area 128-140. (?)  Note we have gone thru the previous 4th of a larger degree….if the high was 3 at 250 then price shouldn’t go thru 122 ish as a 4th wave correction does not go below wave 1.  Interesting to say the least ….post from 09/2013

Missing a $LNKD in the chain?


now we don’t want to catch a falling knife as I hear that isn’t fun … however, that being said, look at the chart below. Just like we showed parabolic take offs in GOOG, IBB, PCLN, AAPL, etc we have the equal and opposite affect when something is being hammered in a liquidation phase.  So, we look for “the start of the campaign” and use that as our radius and basically try to capture the move DOWN and note it’s acceleration at the 3 o’clock position.  This can “usually” be a point of looking for the BOUNCE or the SUPPORT to come in and then work a lower time frame chart for the retest.  Don’t recommend just blindly jumping in BUT expect the area shaded blue to hold and then try to work a pullback to get long .. certainly is looking beat up, isn’t it?

Missing $LNKD in the chain updated from September 2013

$LNKD has been correcting since the top in September 2013 …it’s been a series of lower highs and lower lows so nothing is glaringly bullish EXCEPT the high was noted as a 3.  So, ultimately, this corrective move in LNKD should be bought.  the first and normal target is the end of the 4th wave of a lesser degree and that’s around 160.  also, note the time component — the wave 2 correction is noted by the blue shaded box and then copy/pasted and shows from a time perspective that we could work 2 more month’s into the equation.  Here’s the chart posted in September 13′:

Here’s the updated chart:

LNKD some more correcting?

the last thing I want to show is the Gold/Silver index?  TILT…hugh?  All I want to show is how the same PATTERN appears to be forming on LNKD and how, ultimately, it cracked and then down she went…don’t worry about the index being shown, just note the PATTERN of distribution before “they” pulled the plug.

PATTERN at the TOP appears to be the same FRACTAL as LNKD.
