What Goes Straight Up

What goes [straight] up must eventually go down. However when exactly a symbol which has turned exponential runs out of fuel is the more important question. Once emotions reign high all bets are off – or in this case all bids are on. You may recall that I was pointing at gold the other day and suggesting that we may see another wild push to the upside.

Which is exactly what we got and I’m pretty glad I got out of my short position at break/even. We are now seeing an obligatory pullback but medium term this thing may have legs.

Lottery Longs

I just grabbed a small amount of lottery longs near 1835 where I’m seeing a small cluster of hourly Net-Line Sell Lines (NLSLs). Now as the name implies – if those are breached and we push below yesterday’s lows then continuation to the downside is pretty much baked in.
