Silver Back On The Table

Earlier this week we attempted a long campaign in silver which however was stopped out shortly thereafter. After the ensuing downside a new entry opportunity appears to be unfolding now and should be ripe for the taking in the near future. But let’s not rush into things, shall we?

FOMC Wednesday

Rejoice ladies and leeches – it’s that time of the month – FOMC Wednesday is upon us again. Which is our collective cue to hunker down and wait for the obligatory wave of volatility to wash over us. I swear, every time I see that one on tomorrow’s event roster my eyes glaze over.

So let’s cut through the crap, shall we? I’ll be happy to tell you in advance what’s going to happen.

No Market For the Meek

And the fuckery continues. My apologies in advance for my crude language; but I think it does reflect the general sentiment among market participants these days. It hadn’t exactly been a fun year thus far to begin with – we have seen massive distribution across the front. Just when we thought that equities may pick a direction again we dropped into the summer tape, which has put us through a sideways ordeal of non-directional whipsaw. Even during the best of times it is tough to maintain a consistent edge as a trader – many have tried and very few manage to pull it off in the end. In market conditions like these however I guarantee you that even the pros are [...]
