Bullish Bearish

It is the first trading session in November and that means it’s time for another momo update. What I’m seeing across the board reaffirms the current low participation holding pattern which I proposed in my last update. Various attempts to break even modest support zones have failed and in the process consumed almost all short term bearish momentum over the course of the past few weeks. Although I am still holding short positions from near ES 2150 my perspective now has shifted toward short term bullish and long term bearish. Let me tell you why.

People keep writing me asking if this rally is real or if they should be paying attention to all that bearish talk they keep seeing on the financial news.

Well, maybe not – but that’s definitely how it feels over here. Fortunately the evil lair is equipped with an industrial strength A/C unit which will continuously run on its polar bear setting until late August. If the power goes down I’m dead meat as I have a high tolerance for heat but a very low one for [...]

Let’s Talk Volatility

There is something markedly different about the current sell off and I have spent the last few hours assembling pieces of the puzzle into what I hope will be a useful perspective on where we are heading. As you know the analysis of volatility patterns has become somewhat of a hobby of mine and the more I delve into this aspect of price behavior the more fascinating it becomes.
