Coiled Up And Ready To Strike

I know we’re talking summer tape here but the level of inactivity over the past few days has been a bit concerning. Equities continue to hover above a crucial inflection point and it wouldn’t take much downside to launch a wild ass covering session. The more time passes the more this thing is coiling up and accordingly the more violent I expect the resolving phase.

My ES campaign remains almost unchanged as it’s currently scraping a very modest 0.4R. It’s Friday and I’m not too excited about holding a position over the weekend, especially given all the craziness we’ve been bombarded with in the U.S. as well as over here in Europe the [...]
