Back To Business

That’s it – I don’t want to hear another word about hurricanes, Halloween, or presidential elections. Quite frankly I’ve had more than my fill at this point and the sooner we get back to business the better. Of course right after Halloween we will have to put up with all that X-Mas misery. How damn jolly can you people get every year? And stop the singing already – it’s like cryptonite! Anyway, we’ve got coin to bank – plenty of of setups out there if you pay attention:

Silver right at a NLBL which conveniently expires today. It’s been keeping a low profile for the past week avoiding any contact. Meanwhile on the [...]

Back From Whence We Came

A quick update on the E-Mini. This morning I was lamenting that we had missed that 100-hour breach. Then I stepped out for the gym for two hours and just came back to see this:

Most interesting – we just dipped below. Also note that the daily NLBL seems to be holding thus far. It’s a bit early to jump to conclusions here but I wanted to make sure everyone is at point.

Batten Down The Hatches!

As you probably are already aware – all U.S. stock markets will be closed on Monday and possibly Tuesday. Earlier there was talk about a plan that would have kept electronic trading going on Monday but with half the nation expecting some state of emergency that option was apparently dropped to attend more pressing matters.

[Update Tue 7:00am EDT: Markets will remain closed on Tuesday due the severity of the storm.]

Sandy is expected to bring life-threatening storm surge flooding to the mid-Atlantic coast, Monday evening and into Tuesday. If you live on the East Coast and are affected by evacuation orders then I hope you follow them to the tee. This is going to be [...]
