Just The Setups Ma’am…

The August trading blues are almost behind us, various futures contracts are rolling into their final month of the year, and I’m seeing a bit of movement in some key markets. Although I advise everyone to keep position sizing small as of now I believe it’s time to dip our toe into a few campaigns and also add a few promising symbols to our watch list.

You know just like the last time a few months ago, and then there was the other time earlier this year, and then last year around the same time, oh right and before that when rates were lifted by a few basis points. And who would be able to forget the big crash of 2014, which was almost as bad as the one in 2012. Of course nothing compares with the misery we all had to live through [...]
