Softs On The Move

Still nothing to report on the setups front and I’m starting to chew my toenails out of boredom. Actually I’m kidding – I’ve been spending some time looking into some possible IV crush scenarios and as soon as Jay The Executioner and I are have put together a pertinent game plan I’ll be sharing more on that subject.

Bear Spanking

Every once in a while we snag that perfect entry and I would lie if claimed that it’s not hugely satisfying. Equities are now in full squeeze mode and after a continued push higher overnight it’s due time to convert a portion of my paper profits into cold hard cash. The remainder stays in the game in expectation of a much more pronounced bear spanking.
