Dubai Tsunami: (1) Assessing SMP’s Predictive Accuracy; (2) Re-capping SMP’s Concept

Fig. SMP_1006 (2), SMP_1006 (3) are in Album SMP_1001 to …



TDN 410 = 11/27/09     (Fig. SMP_1006 (2), SMP_1006 (3))
Accuracy of the SMP Model:
Compare 1st Blog July 11, 2008 (TDN 61) 3rd prediction: "A New High 14,683 for end of November 2009" with Figs. SMP_1006 (2) & SMP_1006 (3), in the period TDN 407 (November 23) & TDN 410 (November 27,2009), noting particularly the location of fm, Volatile Market-Sentiment component of DJIA in SMP_1006 (3), and the Intrinsic Value Yardstick and the Reflexivity in SMP_1006 (2).

Re-capping the SMP Model’s concept:

(1) the price of a stock has 2 components, (a) stable historical fh component and (b) volatile market-sentiment fm component;  fh being largely dependent on events that have occurred can be reliably determined while fm , though uncertain since it deals with the future, can nevertheless be rationally projected and continually monitored for deviation from forecast (see Blog July 27,2009: Retrospective NBER Definition of Recessions SHOULD BE REPLACED by SMP’s fm:  the volatile market-sentiment component of the market price, and Blog September 20, 2009: Is Bernanke 5 Months Too Late?  Introducing RIM, a New Approach to Identifying Recession).

(2) the intrinsic value of a stock can be determined by visualizing the stock price as plotted on the longitudinal section of a Cantonese "thousand-layer" ricecake "qian ceng gao" (where the cake surface represents the future stock price projected from its price history, and the actual stock price at any point in time – visualized as located at a particular layer in the section that corresponds to that point – is determined by the rank-value of that layer within the multi-layer thickness): regardless of the variation in thickness of the cake (and of individual layers) along its length, there is no change in the stock’s intrinsic value as long as the stock price stays at the same layerNote similarity of rank-value to "percentile" ranking.

Intrinsic value is masked when goods and services become monetized.  Financial crises result when valuation by "efficient" market theory runs amok and grotesquely distorts intrinsic value.  Since barter trade is intrinsic value at its most primitive manifestation, its recent re-emergence  should not come as a surprise New Buying Power, Despite the Economy, Paddock, Richard C., New York Times, November 29, 2009 )

The above concept offers a method to reconcile market value with intrinsic value at times of extreme economic stress.

Is Bernanke 5 Months Too Late? Introducing RIM, a New Approach to Identifying Recession. Monitoring DJIA for 6 months (9/18/09 to 2/26/10) Using fm (Volatile Component of Market Price)

Added Album SMP_0920 (containing Fig. SMP_0920_1/2/3/4/5, nyt_0725 (2) (copy), SMP_fn_1 (copy), SMP_fn_2 (copy))

TDN 361 = 09/18/09
Fig. SMP_0920_5, using a New Approach to Identifying Recession (RIM), enables the market to be monitored for the next 6 months for deterioration from its current condition (just emerged from recession).  Follow the track of fm (the volatile market component of DJIA) relative to the Recession Identification Zone (as explained in RIM below); there should be plenty of warning if the market decides to do a double-dip, say on 12/18/09 (TDN 425) & 2/18/10 (TDN 468) [red-circled].
Beware of fm peaking on 9/24/09 (TDN 365) & 11/13/09 (TDN 401) [red-circled].  Since high fm usually pairs with low fh and vice versa, and δDJIA (change in DJIA) = (fm + fh)* a previous price Pk-a,(see legend in Fig. SMP_fn_1 (copy)), fm failing to peak on those dates will be reflected as big drops in DJIA. 


New Approach to Identifying Recession (RIM)


To effectively prepare for and deal with a severe recession, a crisis measurement yardstick is required.  Ideally, it should forewarn of the recession’s approach, identify its onset, gauge its severity during the crisis and update forecasts of its duration, signal light at tunnel’s end, and definitively benchmark emergence from recession.


Current recession forecast and definition by National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) protocol is compared with the Recession Identification Method (RIM) derived from the SMP Model, as outlined in the appended SMP_0920 Album (Figures SMP_0920_1/2/3; Recession End on Sep 15, 2009 is enlarged in SMP_0920_4 ).


The SMP Model postulates that the change in a stock’s price comprises 2 components (Blog 7/27/09, legend in Fig. SMP_fn_1): fm (volatile market component) and fh (stable historical component).  RIM consists of charting fm across a Recession Identification Zone defined by an upper and a lower boundary each formulated as a fraction of a hypothetical 20-month future price forecast of the stock’s price.  Thus, in Fig.SMP_0920_1, Recession Upper Boundary = +0.165 * shadow Pk-a, Recession Lower Boundary = -0.088 * shadow Pk-a.  These factors were derived from NBER’s definitions of the Recession End on Sep 15, 2009 and Recession Start in Dec, 2007.  Start and End of the current
Recession are circled: Red Circles for definitions by NBER and Blue Circles for definitions by SMP Model.
The above RIM upper/lower boundaries correspond to the respective NBER boundaries in Fig. nyt_fn_0725 (2)-copy (where lower boundary = 0 % per month growth, upper boundary = 12 % per month growth); fm below the Recession Lower Boundary confirms entry into recession while fm above the Recession Upper Boundary confirms emergence from recession.  Transition of fm through the Recession Identification Zone – from upper to lower, or vice versa – gives months of advance warning of entry into or emergence from recession proper; thus (a) in Fig. SMP_0920_3 – Blue Circle (TDN -128) to Red Circle (TDN -72) – one day after DJIA reaching all-time high 14,164, fm warned of forthcoming recession 3 months ahead of time, and (b) in Fig. SMP_0920_2 – Blue Circle (TDN 265) to Red Circle (TDN 358) – fm forecasted emergence from recession nearly 5 months before FED Chairman’s conjecture of recession end.
Compared to the above RIM tracking of recession, NBER was nearly a year late (Nov. 28, 2008) identifying December 2007 as the start of the current recession cycle.  One expert suggested NBER “would eventually conclude that the [21/22-month long] recession bottomed out in August or September of this year”.  Associated Press on Sep 15, 2009 quoted Bernanke saying "From a technical perspective, the recession is very likely over at this point”.

Thus, NBER relies on an empirical and rear-view-mirror method to define recession.  By contrast, RIM’s definition is derived from the SMP Model which is formulated from concepts logically framed and verifiable by falsification.


For example, prior to his announcement on Sep 15, 2009, if Chairman Bernanke had used the RIM method to track the recession, he could have brought the world out of recession 5 months earlier, from TDN 265 = 5/04/09, by highlighting improving financial conditions evidenced by fm tracking upward, from the Recession Lower Boundary, out of the Recession Identifying Zone (Fig. SMP_0920_2).  Mr Benanke had a 10-day advance notice of the final stage of DJIA coming out of recession (see Fig. SMP_0920_4, from TDN 348 to 358), the last 5 days (TDN 351 = 9/08/09) with fm confirming this outcome by staying at the Recession Upper Boundary.

Predicting DJIA 8/14/09: Start of Interim Pull-back

Added Album SMP_0813: Fig. SMP Market Predictor (1), SMP Market Predictor (2), SMP_ProofOfHypothesis (copy)
TDN 337 = 08/14/09
DJIA last updated on TDN 321 = 07/29/09, to test forward market predictability using Intrinsic Value and Reflexivity Generators.
This prediction is reinforced by fm (volatile market component of market price) & fh (stable historical component of market price) in Fig SMP_ProofOfHypothesis [last updated TDN 283 =5/29/09 ] posted in last blog July 27, 2009.
Note these predictors also forecast an interim DJIA top at 10,856 for TDN 407 = 11/23/09 [Fig. SMP Market Predictor (1)]. This updates the 3rd prediction made in my first blog "New Invention … " posted July 11, 2008 using PMC_0: Price-History Baseline initialized to MSL = 0 on TDN 30 = 5/28/08 (which has been maintained unaltered since TDN 50 = 6/25/08).  The PMC_0 Price-History Baseline is the precursor of the current Intrinsic Value and Reflexivity Generators.
Tomorrow TDN 337 = 08/14/09 marks beginning of two-week interim market pull-back.

Leading Indicators Are Signaling the Recession’s End


Published July 25, 2009 New York Times


Mr. Norris,


It took the National Bureau of Economic Research nearly a year (Nov. 28, 2008) to retrospectively identify December 2007 as the start of the current recession cycle.  One expert suggested NBER “would eventually conclude that the [21/22-month long] recession bottomed out in August or September of this year”, but, as your excellent article of July 25, 2009 Leading Indicators Are Signaling the Recession’s End declared, such conclusion is likely but by no means certain (Figures nyt_fn_0725).


The calendar of successive financial booms and busts is too important to be left at the present NBER interpretative and revisionist approach in its definition. The global financial industry requires a conceptually unassailable modelling of market forces that can definitively delineate (and therefore predict) the start and end of these cycles.


The website Stock Market Prediction Using Price History (http://stockmarketpredictor.spaces.live.com/) postulates that the price of a financial instrument has two components, a stable price-history part and a volatile market-sentiment sensitive part, with which (in combination with a particular range of past price history) the price of the instrument in short- to medium-term can be predicted, if account is taken of the “reflexivity” (per George Soros, circa 1985) between the market and its participants.  Running as a slideshow the 3 figures SMP_fn_1, Figure SMP_fn_2 and nyt_fn_0725 (2) posted on July 27, 2009, it will be obvious

from the uncanny correspondence of the two figures that fm, the volatile market-sentiment component of the market price, should replace the flawed empirical revisionist approach presently used by NBER to define market booms and busts.


A SMP (Stock Market Prediction) model (Figure SMP_fn_1) can be framed around the concept that a “normal-market” can be hypothetically projected for the short- and medium-term from the market’s past price-history.  From this “normal market”, the intrinsic value of the current actual market price at any time can be defined.  Taking the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) as an example, the Index’s change δDJIAk at Interval k when defined in terms of 3 elements:


·        fh stable past price-history-based component

·        fm volatile market-sentiment-based component

·        Pk-a the value of DJIA “a” numbers of Intervals preceding the current Interval k


enables the DJIA at any Interval k to be projected to the Index at the next Interval k+1 using the formulae (in Figure SMP_fn_1)


δDJIAk = (fh + fm) * Pk-a


DJIAk+1 =  DJIAk + δDJIAk


Note the similarity of Figure SMP_fn_2 (blackline-framed portion) to Figure nyt_fn_0725 (2).

·        depicting fm the volatile market-sentiment-based component in the 6-month pre-Recession period from Trading Day No. TDN -219 = 6/01/07 to TDN -91 = 12/03/07, and

·        fm during the 21-month Recession, from TDN -91 = 12/03/07 to TDN 348 = 8/31/09

Predicting DJIA Friday 06/05/09: Up +206/370!! A Way to Distinguish Market Manipulation from Genuine Panic/Exuberance?

TDN 288 = 06/05/09
We now have a conceptually unassailable framework for predicting (or at least estimating) future market movements, where historical and market sentiment influence on future price can be distinguished and quantitatively evaluated.  Unless these two components (historical & market sentiment) are differentiated in any prediction technique, wrong conclusions are likely to be drawn due to lack of quantifiable historical perspective.  While this flaw persists, market manipulation is easily disguisable amidst genuine panic or exuberance (see remarks (2) below).  Numerous examples of this potential pitfall taken from the preceding 18 eventful months of historic moment will be discussed at an appropriate forum.
The following prediction shows that the hypothesis of the SMP Model can be mathematically proved.
(I’m witholding the promised After-Market Comment for TDN 283, 284, and 285 until after Friday, 06/05/09.  If the following prediction is wrong, you will not be interested in it anyway!)
Here are the 3 elements required to predict DJIA for TDN 288 = 06/05/09 :  change in DJIA = some past DJIA * (fh +fm) where 
(1) fh is the historical component (which is predetermined by past history, and may be assumed fixed for the day to all intents and purposes); fh = 0.015.  For comparison, fh = +0.001, +0.009 & -0.001 for TND 282 = 05/28/09, TND 283 = 05/29/09 & TND 284 = 06/01/09 respectively.
(2) fm is the market sentiment component which, based on recent market sentiment trend (for the 7 days preceding TDN 284 = 06/01/09, fm = -.001, +0.007, -0.001, +0.012, +0.006, -0.014, -0.010), is likely to range from +0.012 to -0.014 (= fm).
Put in historical perspective, this range is 1/5th to 1/7th of the extreme market sentiment (+0.081 to -0.064) that reigned in the fortnight (beginning 9/29/08) of -3183/+1414 points DJIA swing, on the anniversary (short 10 days) of Dow’s peak on 10/9/07.  Was that extreme volatility in the 10 trading days from 9/29/08 to 10/13/09 entirely genuine market sentiment driven?
(3) DJIA in the past, outside the conventional 200-day MA range, determined at 13,700,
Proof of SMP Model’s Thesis
We have
change in DJIA for TDN 288 = 06/05/09 =
1): Current Price Predetermined by History
(a) 13,700 * (0.0150.014) = +14,
(b) 13,700 * (0.015 + 0.000) = +206,
(c) 13,700 *  (0.015 + 0.012) = +370 or
2): … Until Market Sentiment Overwhelms History (i.e., "extraordinary movement")
If market sentiment on TDN 288 = 06/05/09 should replicate that of 10/13/08 (+0.081) when DJIA put on +927 points, DJIA can be up
(d) 13,700 * (0.015 + 0.081) = +1,320 !!
Or if a financial tsunami hits, like that on 09/29/08 with -777 points drop when market sentiment (-0.064) tanked, DJIA can be down

(e) 13,700 * (0.0150.064) = -671 !!
By the way, scrap my earlier Warning of Short-term Pull-back!!
