That's great akola..congrats..I guess I was hoping for the reasons behind the trade......otherwise we just beome like all the rest of the Paltalk forums out there.......We should be trying to help each other...that was my real thoughts behind it

So this is still not capitulation?
S2 today is 838.....One of Joe s' square numbers comes in around 841 I beleive...Hey Joe we need lower numbers now.....
Bruce: Use (841^(1/2)-0.25)^2 to find the next lower number. Substitute 841 with the result to find the one after that and so on. Change the sign to add 0.25 in order to go up. If I understood Joe correctly, the constant of 0.25 changes periodically to fit the current environment. It may be 0.146, 0.25 or ???, but 0.25 seems to be working for now.

EDIT: Now if I could figure out how to calculate the dated sq nines...
618 fib retrace was there at 871ish on the RTH move,, didn't figure it to the penny but close enuf with +/- 1

a lil bit easier way is knowing that .146 is fib .618 to the fourth power
Joe, do you have lower numbers you could share? Thanks in advance.

So 0.382 (^2), 0.236 (^3), 0.146 (^4), 0.090 (^5) would all be valid constants for calculating the sq nines?
These are the numbers the above formula produces. * = prime

841
827*
813
799
785
771
757*
743*

now, if you really want to get fancy, compare your sq9 numbers to cardinal ingress points on a scale of 360: 90, 180, 270, 360, 450, 540, 630, 720, 810, 900, 990, 1080, 1170, 1260, 1350, 1440, 1530, 1620,.......these are natural resistance points.

now you see why 900 was an important spx level

Do you round up/down with your caculations

So 0.382 (^2), 0.236 (^3), 0.146 (^4), 0.090 (^5) would all be valid constants for calculating the sq nines.

Thanks

I used Excel's Round() function, which is half-up (<5 stays the same, >= 5 goes up).
