Put/Call, 1/2/3…

12 September 2019 – We’ll get to all that. First, let’s talk months.

Favourite-month & birth-month stuff.

My favourite month tends to be…

even though my birth month is …

I’m showing off like mad, aren’t I, but really, I’m proving nothing more than the fact that I can read.

I’m barrelling along Howe Street, downtown Vancouver, definitely en-route elsewhere (as you will discover in my next post), but then…

I have to stop for this.

Now home to the Open Outcry Restaurant on its one-time trading floor, this building at 475 Howe Street is the site of the former Vancouver Stock Exchange — demurely headlined as “colourful” in this write-up, though more pungently called the “scam capital of the world” by Forbes magazine in 1989.

But we needn’t care, need we? We can instead indulge in a little insider lingo (if not insider trading), all risk-free and perfectly legal.

The numbers seem routine enough …

but it all gets more exotic with the signs for months of the year, and specific stock-market commands.

And now you can decode my month-secrets.

  • WALKING… & SEEING

    "Traveller, there is no path. Paths are made by walking" -- Antonio Machado (1875-1939)

    "The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes" -- Marcel Proust (1871-1922)

    "A city is a language, a repository of possibilities, and walking is the act of speaking that language, of selecting from those possibilities" -- Rebecca Solnit, "Wanderlust: A History of Walking"
