I took a peek...

I took a peek ... at the stock market graph for today, and it looks remarkably like a noisy square wave displayed on an oscilloscope.  There were apparently four events that affected the markets in a roughly equal manner, and the timing was such that it resembles a square wave with a 50% duty cycle.  I don't remember ever seeing something like this before!

If what I just said makes no sense to you, don't worry about it.  It's sort of an electronics geek insider joke.  I'm not making any comment about the market here, just noting a strange coincidence.  I'm certain it means nothing of significance.  :)


  1. So, what can you deduce about the decay time factor? :) I think I see some low pass filtering, too.

  2. I don't think I could deduce a darned thing! :) I did visualize a prototype board, though, with an ungrounded scope probe hanging off a clock line. I've seen that sort of scope picture many times!
