Boiler Room

No, I’m not referring to that most excellent movie with Giovanni Ribisi, which along with ‘Wall Street’ (the first one – the second sucked) is a must-see for any aspiring trader – especially if you’re thinking of joining one of the big name firms.

Rather I am referring to that great smoldering city in the South also known as Houston, Texas. And that’s exactly where I’m heading this Sunday – scheduled to return on Tuesday the 4th.

And let me proactively dispel any rumors that I am not going to there to meet Brittany Booker, a.k.a. Miss Houston 2012. There is NO truth to those allegations whatsoever! [...]

Pulling The Trigger

I got a Friday afternoon setup in the spoos for everyone – the setup is too juicy.

The bots quite obviously rode this sucker down all day, just to pull the carrot from over eager shorts and instead applying a thorough rectal cleansing. I hope you enjoyed the ride – if you weren’t a sub today please accept my condolences.

The future is now, folks. Moral of today’s session: If you bring a pocket knife (e.g. MACD, stochastic, etc.) to a gun fight (i.e. HFT dominated market) then you only have [...]

Your Line In The Sand

There are reasons why many folks here subscribe to the Zero and the current short squeeze is one among many. I’ll cover that later – for now let’s take a quick look at the spoos and the SPX. We are now bouncing from well established support lines but I want to drill our treasure map into your rodent brains so that nobody gets caught with their pants down.

The daily is useless right now so here’s the weekly SPX which has given us two juicy net-lines – one to sell and one to buy. We were once again retesting the NLSL today and that is potentially bullish – assuming of course it holds through the session and [...]
