Live Tape Reading W1217

During my time away it didn’t escape my attention that you guys very much enjoyed Scott’s excerpts on tape reading. As you all know I am very much a systemic trader at this point but at the same time still enjoy following a variety of charts on a discretionary/analytical basis for three reasons: First I happen to be good at it as my thinking process follows a mixture between the analytical and the creative.

Federal Housecleaning

It’s that time of the month again and that means blood spills all over the place and rapid changes of emotions for no apparent reason.
