    I saw in the short term thread that a cat has been used to predict TSLA share price movement. I've seen animals used to predict the winner of football matches, but can they predict stock prices?

    Someone I know claims to have a magic frog that is an analog of the S&P 500 based on the height the frog jumps at a certain time frame each morning. I don't know what to believe.

    My dogs have been a great distraction when placing orders, which has always resulted in a lower price. I tell them they have to earn their dog food. They take that mission very seriously.

    I have a tiny praying mantis that helps me invest. She sits on the computer screen and attempts to attack the mouse cursor or anything that moves and is fly size. Sometimes she will attack stock charts when they make large swings and the OHLC bar is moving.
    I choose my portfolio based on what she attacks.

    It does appear she is indicating "go long this one" in the picture, and that stock appears to be tesla.

    Animals are interesting-
    I pop a toast every morning and then buy stock of the company of the CEO whose face invariably appears- they are always companies I love fortunately.

    Do chicken entrails qualify as in the 'animals' category? What do you think, Chicken? Are you game? :crying:

    I find sacrificing a goat to be much more reliable. Chicken entrails are for people who can't afford a Model S.

    Yikes, this discussion reminds of limerick-gate! TSLA at high price = excessive exuberance (I am as guilty as anyone of this). No way this discussion happens during a 10-20% pullback.

    When I lasted posted a limerick
    The stock price fall made us all really sick
    Except for the shorts
    Whose nasty retorts
    Would be unprintable here and besides since this last line really runs on it so it's not a poem whose-name-we-can't-mention thus it won't do the trick
