Equity Refractory Period

Below is the stock for Playboy (PLBY). Based on its lifetime history:

  1. It began with absolutely nothing special happening;
  2. It then became mildly excited, swelling and rising from its base;
  3. The excitement briefly died down, but in an instant, began to ramp up again with vigor;
  4. The surge swelled, generating excitement and attention, moving to utterly unexpected heights;
  5. Then, suddenly, it was all over, and a slow grind of disinterest ground away into a morass of utter insouciance.

It is 66% smaller than it was during the peak of the excitement.

Solar Fractal

Well, my favorite-of-all positions Solana (symbol $SOL) is still a champ. The crypto scene had some seriously rough sailing yesterday evening (as The Director described it in comments, an “air pocket”) and it was solid red everywhere you looked, with most coins down about 10% or so. There’s still a strong gravitational tug going on, but $SOL continues to defy them, in spite of getting hit pretty hard itself during the aforementioned air pocket. What I love about this critter is how, even at various degrees of granularity, the pattern plays out the same. Here it is very close up………..
