Oompa Loompa Tape

What exactly did they mean when singing ‘if you’re not greedy you will go far’? Clearly Oompa Loompas are not trader material and should stick with chocolate manufacturing only. Which incidentally may be coming back to the United States if President-elect Donald Trump will have his way. Not sure if that’s a good thing however. If I had to choose between a famed Hershey’s bar and one by Milka made from rich Alpine Swiss milk then I’m sure you know what I’d be stuffing my face with. By the way, a word of advice: Oompa Loompas – hard working little guys – but be sure to be nice to them as they aim directly for you gonads when they [...]

So I’ll be doing my best to guide you all though the unfolding mess to the best of my abilities. Be advises however that playing the swings during a sideways period can easily lead to over trading. Make sure you are aware of the potential traps and thus keep your position sizing to a minimum whilst allowing for large stops.

More Noise On The Eastern Front

It’s hard to keep up these days with the laundry list of potential market disruptors we are facing on a monthly basis. As I’m typing this Draghi is still dishing out empty rhetoric to anyone still cares following along after eight years of experimental monetary policies. Not surprisingly the Euro is in whipsaw mode as participants are feverishly weighing every single words for hidden coded messages or signs that free money train may one day come to an end. In the end it’s nothing but noise which will soon be forgotten as soon as necessity or convenience once more trumps public interest. Which incidentally seems to happen a lot nowadays, doesn’t it?
