Coiled Up Ready To Strike

We’ve got a lot to cover today, so I will spare you the pleasantries and dive right in. Yesterday’s session once again must have been frustrating for many participants due to a continued lack of direction. But I expect resolution to be delivered swiftly and brutally as the equities are now coiled up like the proverbial snake.

In case you wonder (and I’m sure you are) I actually didn’t lift that pic off of Vivid’s Swedish edition (unfortunately my membership ran out).
