And we are officially ticking in 2017! I trust you enjoyed a memorable holiday season and are now ready to slowly abandon each and every New Year’s resolution you committed yourself to just last week. Personally I’m pretty proud of myself as I survived yet another Christmas without adding a single pound. Plus I spent much of the past 10 days collaborating with Scott and a few others on an improved version of Scalpius. I’ll be sharing more on that that as we’re forward trading the system over the coming two months.
Here comes the cold and the dark. If you are like me and hate winter with a vengeance then you may be pretty depressed today. But let’s not forget that there’s an upside. Today being the shortest day of the year also means that it only gets better from here, as every new sunrise brings us a few more minutes of daylight.

Back when I was living in Germany I recall the sun setting at half past four and not appearing again until after eight. Of course it’s even worse further up North.
Did I mention that I hate winter? I wish I could tell you that I am all back to my normal devious self, but unfortunately I’m still trying to shake what has turned out to be one nasty head cold. My wife’s actually had it for almost a week now as well as apparently every other Spaniard we hear walk by our house judging by the incessant coughing and sneezing. Honestly I think this will be the last winter I’ll be spending over here in Europe. Even down here in Spain the humid weather and short daylight hours eventually catch up with you. I was actually considering to make an emergency run for the South but even in Tenerife it’s only a few degrees warmer with rain [...]
It’s not for a lack of trying but I’ve got zilch today on the setup front. So we’ll have to make due with nursing some of our ongoing campaigns. The E-Mini didn’t grant us an entry yesterday but some of the subs and yours truly actually grabbed a long position on the Russell futures.
