Well the midpoint of 2022 has finally arrived and with it the mid year Synthetic Systems update. With this update we also have a substantial upgrade in Synthetic Systems. The version now appearing on the pages of the Market Analysis section changes from what we’ve referred to in prior posts as SS to S or “Quick” Synthetic Systems. The changes are discussed in more detail in Synthetic Systems Update and Synthetic Systems Comparison.
For comparison below is all three versions updated to mid year. The differences between them highlight areas of greatest uncertainty. S is the new version we’ll be using as the standard going forward, SS is the version used before and appearing in the previous charts archived under Market Analysis, SSS is the “Symmetric Synthetic Systems” introduced in Systems Beta.
