I am not sure which part you want me ...Hi CamaRon,<br /><br />I am not sure which part you want me to post an example of. If it is about the ultrametric understanding, as I said in the post, it is difficult to get an intuition of it using visual geometry as it is so different from the usual metric.<br />Anyway, you can check on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultrametric_space<br /><br />There also exist several resources for a basic study of p-adic numbers on the net such as the followings (but you can find others with a google search):<br />http://www.numericana.com/answer/p-adic.htm<br />http://www.maths.gla.ac.uk/~ajb/dvi-ps/padicnotes.pdf<br /><br />For a more thorough study, I also referred, in the original post, to the book of Alain M. Robert.<br /><br />Anyway, I might develop these matters more in detail in future posts, so far, they are still at the level of intuition.<br />A concrete exemple is maybe to think of the price elaboration from fundamental news: if we consider the EUR/USD pair for example, it is well-known it often displays a positive correlation with the Dow Jones. We can however imagine a situation wherein the Dow Jones is up, and some news are out reporting some uncertainties as to the sovereign debt of some EU countries. In such a case, we'll have two opposite fundamental influences, the DJ theoretically pushing the EUR up and the sovereign debt pushing it down, by considering an ultrametric logic ("the strongest wins"), I simply mean that one of these influences will merely disappeared and only one of them will be effective, instead of offsetting each other.<br /><br />Hope this clarifies a bit.<br /><br />And thanks for your encouragement and for sharing on your setup, I will try it out.<br /><br />Cheers<br /><br />Jean-PhilippeJean-Philippehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/16867058387912497552noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1168298421556519669.post-40073825622456756952011-05-02T05:01:06.311+09:002011-05-02T05:01:06.311+09:00One more thing: I believe you are on the right tra...One more thing: I believe you are on the right track in terms of an understanding of the market, when going deeper into the application of the fractal bands. I have been, and am using them extensively. Not in the traditional "Bollinger" sense, but instead to see contraction and expansion of price; i.e. where a move starts, and where it ends. Also, I can easily use them for estimating what is normally referred to as support/resistance, or supply and demand. See for yourself!

Thanks for your comment.
As for Godel, ...Hi John,<br /><br />Thanks for your comment.<br /><br />As for Godel, I am not sure how his theorems may apply to technical analysis. Godel provided results for mathematical axiomatic systems, in which axioms articulate a theory in a very precise and specific way. When considering "axioms" with regard to TA, I am not sure his work will apply with the same clarity. <br />TA indeed uses "principles" but even those are difficult to define clearly.<br /><br />The problem at the heart of the main post and maybe at the heart of this whole blog is indeed the status of the knowledge that is provided by TA.<br /><br />Relative to this main problem, a question that first comes to mind is the criticism of the "self-fulfilling prophecy": TA is efficient only insofar that TA is widely practised and that is easily understood from the way offer and demand articulates price variation, For instance, if everybody follows a Bollinger Bands strategy, then Bollinger Bands become a relatively efficient indicator. Is that all there is in TA?<br />It may be, but if so, TA becomes part of the market itself, and only a part since a part of the market is made up by non-speculators, who are exchanging a product because they need it for some other reason. So TA is therefore place in a rather awkward position whereby it is assumed to be both a part and a representation of the market.<br />It is this problematic that is at the heart of my thinking these days, and it is not unaffiliated to some other big questions at the heart of science, such as quantum theory or social sciences, wherein the separation between the analyst and the object of analysis cannot be posited in terms as strong as is usually thought in classic sciences.<br /><br />Cheers<br /><br />Jean-PhilippeJean-Philippehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/16867058387912497552noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1168298421556519669.post-18920682790033926432011-04-27T00:29:15.588+09:002011-04-27T00:29:15.588+09:00I could refer to the the Incompleteness Theorem of...I could refer to the the Incompleteness Theorem of Kurt Godel. In the technical analysis there are some things (axioms) that we just cannot prove.<br /><br />On the other hand most of this knowledge was obtained as gnosis knowledge. <br /><br />John LastAnonymousnoreply@blogger.com
