Momo Update W1617

We’ve watched the tape gyrate on a slow downward trajectory for several weeks now and a final resolution, to the up – or down – side, continues to evade us. Which I’m sure has been jittering quite a few nerves out there, especially given that many participants are unaware of or unwilling to embrace the reality of distinct market cycles. Which unlike our seasons seem to come and go in fairly unpredictable patterns, much to everyone’s chagrin. However acceptance of a cyclical market is tantamount to survival as a trader, as has been the recognition of and then response to climate variations throughout our evolutionary history.

Decent Exposure

I leave it up to you to decide whether its due to sheer luck or perhaps skill but we actually seem to be accumulating pretty decent exposure and there’s more waiting in the bullpen (see below). It has always been my opinion that the true skill of a trader reveals itself not by what he/she does during the easy times but by how he/she operates during those nerve wrecking periods when things tend to get messy. And to be clear – this doesn’t necessarily mean a necessity to take action or to attempt to ‘beat the market’ at its own game – which obviously none of us will ever be able to do.

Time For An Upgrade

I was recently encouraged by a reader to move my entire domain to SSL which was something I had been planning for a quite a while but kept forgetting due to my ever growing workload. However then Google suddenly sends me a notification yesterday which stated that any pages with password fields served via HTTP are going to flag a warning, starting… and get this: January 1st, 2017. Well, thanks a lot Google for the timely reminder!

Close Shave

Welcome back, I trust you enjoyed a lovely and relaxing Easter holiday weekend. It’s actually still going on over here in (catholic) Spain and many other European nations which continue to officially observe Easter Monday. So it’s safe to say that I probably have the questionable honor of being the only person working in Spain today! Well me and the local drug dealers who unfortunately seem to have been replicating like rabbits here in Valencia over the past few years.
