Air Getting A Bit Thin

Things continue to progress nicely for us on the trading front and I decided to not push my luck by entering any additional campaigns today. After all correlation risk is significant in this brave QE world as currency driven moves usually affect symbols across the board. Besides everyone and their poodle seem to be bullish right now, and to once more quote the great Mark Twain: “Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”

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.

So in other words – it’s bullpucky and you’re better off watching your goldfish for valuable clues as to where the market may be heading next. Or let me make it even easier for you:

Mid Summer Momo Update

It is hot and it is humid over here in Valencia. You want to know how hot? The other day a poodle’s tail caught fire just waiting in the sun. The more frantically he was wiggling his tail the brighter it burned. Fortunately his master was nearby and was sweating so much (overweight Brit) that he was able to put the fire out with his bare hands. True story! 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 [...]
