Moth Into Flame

If you’ve been dropping by the lair for more than a few weeks then you probably know that I’ve been a huge Metallica fan since the mid 1980s when they released Master Of Puppets. So the other day I’m at the gym listening to some testosterone inducing station on Spotify. And out of the blue ‘Moth Into Flame’ pops up, which confused the heck out of me as I had been completely unaware that Metallica was releasing a new album. I thought to myself ‘wait a minute, this sounds like some of their old stuff but somehow I must have missed this one‘. You can imagine my joy when I later realized what was actually going on.

But I expect resolution to be delivered swiftly and brutally as the equities are now coiled up like the proverbial snake.

More Fuel To The Fire

Today’s the last session of August and the expected EOM candle wrangling will obviously add even more fuel to the already explosive cocktail of intra-day volatility we had to up with all summer. Part of what transformed me into the humble host of this evil den of market domination is my passion for technical analysis, my quest to recognize and act upon the most probable scenarios, and last but not least my ability of aiding my audience in maintaining an edge on a long term basis. This blog thrives if you do and you are only as good as your last trade. However keep in mind that ‘being good’ in trading does not always mean winning. Sometimes it just means surviving [...]
