Magic Rulers

In my charting universe the most valuable charts are at the same time often the most simplest. Just give me a channel or a trendline and I’m happy. And I’m not alone – as Jeffrey Kennedy over at EWI puts it: How a Kid With a Ruler Can Make a Million.

Trading Cavemen

Tonight’s update is quite fun for me as for once we have now established an inflection point which allows us to clearly define the separation point between our two competing scenarios. As a matter of fact, it’s so easy – even a caveman could trade this:

That’s right – Mole’s charts are now plastered all over your local airports. The reach of Evil Speculator knows no bounds.

This afternoon I summed up the gist of the current wave count and nothing really has changed since. Either we’re about to start a third wave to the upside or we are at the onset of a third wave to the downside:
