The Nonlinear Decay Portion of Generationally Saturated Markets 
Its Utility As A Leading Economic and Macro SocialPolitical Indicator
Looking from afar at the qualitative decay valuation curve of the great
British South Sea Bubble's two year 96 plus percent collapse which
fooled even the great mind of a subsequently poorer Sir Issac Newton,
valuation decay with a 70 percent loss of value is apparent over less
than a month or so of its primary nonlinearity devolution phase. Newton,
who ironically had a unique understanding and perception of the
smalltogreatmasscoupled withshort distance appletoearth nonlinearity
produced within a greater field of lulling linear (curvilinear) relationships of
circling heavily bodies, failed to anticipate a comparable nonlinear
force occurring in economic systems.
The mathematically well described  but still as of yet only
empirically known  force of the earth's gravity causing the accelerated
nonlinear drop of the apple is similar to the immutable and empirical
macroeconomic saturation forces producing periodic nonlinear drops in market
systems operating by simple quantum mathematical fractal patterns
composed of serially smaller fractal time units. A ten day chart of
any tradable asset will reveal these recurring fractal patterns and
the nonlinearities of devaluation. All of these nonlinear drops at
smaller order time units, are occurring within a system that appears
from a human longevity time frame and adult market interest time frame
to be reassuringly linear.
At generational macroeconomic saturation points where the population of
speculators, consumers, and borrowers have been exhausted limited by the
constraints of ongoing wages, the accumulative cost of borrowing,
over production of assets, and the over valuation or inflationary costs of those
assets at these points the nonlinear drops are proportionally
greater with greater followon consequences. A slowing forward
velocity of Mercury at some critical point in its long term future
may 'rapidly' and 'nonlinearly' spiral this sky lab  earth
equivalent heavenly body into the sun. Perhaps this has already
occurred for ancient unnamed planets a,b, and c which were a billion,
2 billion, and 4 billion years or so ago very proximate to the sun.
While the generational economic saturation and maturation of the
complex debtwageasset system occurs with regular periodicity, the
followon nonlinear phase of value devolutions of leading asset
classes may represent a consistent marker for macro economic,
macrosocial, and macropolitical dislocations and turmoil that
thereafter ensue. The magnitude of severity of these followon
disruptions may be in proportion to the degree of leading asset
nonlinear absolute devolution or fractal decline which is in turn
proportional
to the degree of credit expansion via the preceding debt creation
cycle.
The US cold war economy, transitioning to the 1990's new
paradigm IT economy (and collapse), and thereafter the coexistent new
global dollar debt for low cost Asian goods economy and the
new housing bubble economy via low interest and ARM housing credit
expansion have occurred in rapid order over the last 55 years
with never a declining year of GDP growth. This continuous US
GDP
growth is unparalleled in its 230 year history. The US accumulative
and accelerating yearly international debt imbalances in trading IOU's
for foreign products are likewise unparalleled. The economic growth
of IOU receiver and producing countries has never before been so
dependent on a foreign consumer willing to take on so much debt. The
10 percent 1929 margin equivalent leveraged debt expansion has been
eclipsed by the current unregulated and predatory US lending industry
targeting a much larger population in their pursuit of the 'traditional American
Dream'. Like all 70 or so year economic cycles the current
generational nonlinear devolution will end with a new cycle of growth,
but not before a terrible price is likely extracted in terms of
followon macro social political dislocations.
Just as with growth, assets decay appears to occur in discrete fractal
patterns, as the liquidation phase of overproduced and /or overvalued
assets 'grows' or accelerates in discrete quantitative units. While
the nonlinear phase of 1720 was quite efficient, computerized trading
as shown in 1987 has the potential for unparalleled liquidation
efficiency. The computer's efficiency in 87 brought about regulations
with trading breaker rules dependent on hourly and daily percentage
decays within the market. Even without the efficiency of the computer,
because this generational macroeconomic saturation point lies at the
end of a 148 year second fractal sequence, nonlinearity will be
limited only by these paradoxically 'computer enforced' artificial
'timeouts'.
Back to quantitative fractal analysis. The first fractal decay pattern
for the Wilshire starting on 11 May or in the final trading hours of
the preceding trading day and ending at the low on 24 May was a
y/2.5y/2.5y or 2/5/5 daily classical curvilinear capacitorlike
Gompertzlike decay fractal. The European markets were stronger with
day 3 of the 5 day US Wilshire third decay subfractal marking their
lows. Thereafter, there were 7 additional days of growth. The first
completed inverse growth decay fractal was a
4/10/910 fractal x/2.5x/2.5x. for a probable inverse growth decay
base of 17 days using the second and third subfractals for a primary base.
Another major 22.5x daily Wilshire break point approaches. The
first 45
day fractal sequence of the October based 45/ (30/60 or 26/65) had
as
a starting base a 512 day sequence.This occurred in concert with the
previously identified 11/27/2227 day decay sequence starting in August
2005. The resulting 5657 day non dominant base fractal is easily
identifiable and has as its starting day the intraday low on 13
October
2005. A line drawn from the end of the above cited 45 day sequence
does not touch upon the low of 13 October, defining the 512 days as
an initiating base for the subsequent primary 45 day dominant base
sequence.
13 October for the secondary non dominant base of 5657 days is double
counted because it starts at a low and ends on a high. Friday 9 June
2006 was day 111 of an expected 111113 day maximum 2x second
fractal sequence sequence. Because day 111 is occurring near or as the
potentially lower lower high; is contained near the end of the first
inverse growth subfractal of a second inverse growth fractal(with 17 days
being the primary inverse growth fractal base), and is occurring
in a technically weakening market, the next 2728 trading days or 6
weeks ( ie,, x/22.5x :: 56/112 of 140days )may well contain the expected
nonlinearity befitting of the terminal portion of the US's dual
generational, debt saturated, consumer saturated, and production
saturated macroeconomic148 year old Grand Second Fractal.
While generationally analogous to the nonlinear ends of the 16th
century Spanish debt expansion, the 17th century Dutch tulip
assetdebt mania, the 18th century British Southsea stock debt mania,
the relatively greater percentage of population
participating in asset overvaluation enabled by a systematic
pervasive US lending industry  whose telemarketed, computerized, and
aggressive primary business and sole goal is maximizing debt expansion
 has resulted in a collective US debt burden and overvaluation of
assets relative to wages proportionally greater than any preceding
historical macroeconomic saturation points.
The nonlinearity at the terminal portion of the current second 148
year US grand fractal cycle, reasonably can be expected as having
the
potential for the greatest percentage drop in the shortest period of
time.
The sudden devolution of current asset valuations likewise could
potentially
have greater and more vexing socialpolitical ramifications and
dislocations
as compared to prior historical periods of turmoil following collapses
from generational macroeconomic saturation areas of debt and
consumption. Large scale political and social turmoil are the carts
that are pulled(or overturned) by the antecedent macroeconomic horse
stumbling into the unexpected very deep and low viscosity quicksand
found atop generational asset saturation areas.
Announcing a New Academic Interest Alcove Website:
'Bioutilities of the Cellular High Energy State Metabolic Pathway'
.... On day 140 of the 56/140 sequence the underperforming NDX hit a
closing low......
An argument for a final x/2.5x/2.5x terminal decaying growth fractal
ending on 4 August was made on 5 August 06 on the third page of the
comment's section in a Huffington's Post Gary Hart 5 August article
'An October Surprise.'
.......
"Is it possible that the macroeconomy operates according to near ideal
noncomplex mathematical laws? Would this really be so surprising?
Mightn't one expect natural laws as part and integral to a very
nonrandom process that is ultimately quantified in the integers 0
through 9?
The alcove of the Economic Fractalist has posed such a hypothesis 
that the global macroeconomy with its integrative money growth, money
growth cresting, and ultimately money decline, that is, its credit
cycle, is exactly represented by simple quantum fractal growth and
decline natural laws directly reflected in the daily and weekly and
yearly trading valuations of its great composite equity, bond, and
commodity markets. In a prospective fashion a mathematical x/2.5x/2.5x
discontinuous fractal growth has been identified that appears to
represent the limits of the global credit cycle system.
While the integrative process is a complex mixture of facilitated debt
and money creation, resultant asset and commodity inflation,
ultimately limited by ongoing wages, consumption saturation, and
increasing debt obligations via accelerating debt instruments, e.g.,
ARMS the predictable evolution of the summation quantum simple
patterns strongly appear to herald major directional changes.
Such a change occurred for the Wilshire 5000, the composite US equity
proxy marker, on 5 May 2006. That day represented the secondary
closing high for the Wilshire after its a 142 year credit growth cycle
from its predecessor stock summation proxy indicators starting in 1858
and ending in March of 2000. 5 May 2006, the secondary high to March
2000, was marked by a minutely exhaustion gap with a closing high for
the last 6 years.
Now on 4 August 2006, another possible minutely high exhaustion gap
high has occurred accompanied by a very curious sequential exhaustion
gap to the low side  covering the same trading valuation territory 
all within the same day.
The x/2.5x/2.5x extended fractal evolution from the Wilshire's lows in
2002 and 2003 to its 5 May 2006 closing high has been well described
in the serial posting of EF. From the October 2005 low, the daily
fractal pattern has been:
x/2.5x/2x/1.5x or 12/30/24/18 days.
Day 18 initiated a new fractal sequence with a 2122 day base.:
21/53/53 or x/2.5x/2.5x with day 53 of the third fractal growth
sequence 4 August 2006.
Interestingly day 42  exactly 2X of the 21 day base  of the second
fractal growth sequence was .... 5 May 2006.
Was 4 August 2006 the final x/2.5x/2.5x extended lower high
representing the second shoulder of the 5 May 2006 second shoulder to
the March 2000 high?
The US tenyear note has ominously inverted below the 3month treasury
for the last two trading days. Tenyear treasuries at near 5 percent
in a massive deflationary environment would seem the prudent
investment  and expected natural money flow move.
As always expect the discontinuous and the nonlinear ... unexpected.
