An Astronomer's Guide to Financial Corporate Equities

The following chart shows the 10-year moving average of financial corporate equities divided by annual wage and salary accruals.

After the spectacular long-term parabolic trend failure of the Big Dipper, the Fed (with the help of NASA) is stress testing the hell out of the short-term parabolic Little Dipper!

Have no fear! Nothing can ever go wrong again!

It seems what you are missing is a "Parabolic Trend Probability of Failure Predictor" (a PTPFP).

Seems like if you took all your "Parabolic Trends" and all the failures of those trends, you could come up with a distribution of where all the trends failed. Then, using the power of bullshit, you could draw conclusions about future trend failures and publish a book with the title of "An Investors Guide to Predicting Future Changes in Parabolic Trends : ".

I'm worried, however, that this word "failure" will scare-off potential "investors". Is there a more optimistic word that you can think of for Trend "Failure"; it's so... negative.

But, anyway, you could be famous, and be able to accumulate Ferrari's for your retirement savings plan.

Collapse? Breakdown? Bust? Implosion? Fiasco?

I don't know. I suppose I could call it a new word that doesn't exist.

How about Igbliss? The unsustainable parabola igblissed! Yes!

Bust? Did someone say bust? :)

Rob Dawg,

Bust déjà vu!

I have this sagging thought that we've been through these puns before. Hahaha!! :)

Right on the button! [groan!]

These puns are getting lopsided. We need to keep our eyes focused elsewhere.

Okay, that's it. I'm done now. :)
