Short Term Inflection Point

It’s been a tough week for me (Stripey’s passing and more) and I hope you can forgive me if I’m going to be brief today. We are near an inflection point which I however wanted to share before I call it a week:

The hourly spoos are testing the 100-hour SMA again and that’s interesting for many reasons. First we have two NLBLs hanging right above. If we breach those we are lined up for an acceleration higher as we are also painting an inverse H&S formation. So this could get really interesting, especially if it happens after hours. So if you’re bullish here wait for 1407 and Bob’s your uncle.

That EUR/JPY trade I posted on Tuesday paid off handsomely but we are now [...]

Fake’n Bake Wednesday Wrap Up

Great opportunity to show you a textbook shake’n fake setup and how to play it with the Zero:

And there you have it folks – that was a nice divergence right when things looked like they would fall off the plate. Fooling some retail rats may be easy but pulling a fast one on the Zero is another story. If you prefer to fly blind – hey, that’s on you 😉

The future is now – so don’t bring a knife to a raygun fight. If you are interested in becoming a Zero subscriber then don’t waste time and sign up here. A Zero subscription comes with full access to all Gold posts, so you actually get double the bang for your [...]
