Crossing The Chasm

Equities are soon facing a veritable chasm on our volume profile chart, one which spans roughly between ES 1940 and 1980 – 40 handles of non-participation where pretty much anything can happen. At the current velocity I have some doubts as to whether we’ll even make it half way through there but I don’t want to be too hasty with making an assessment as we’re slowly dropping out of a high volatility range and may be seeing more trending tape later this week.

Entry Opportunity

We have a brilliant long entry opportunity today and I am posting it early while I’m still hunting for other symbols. Long here now or on a little dip lower with stop below the overnight spike low at 1992.25. Odds are mixed – 50/50 at best but pretty significant upside potential if it plays out. This is the type of trade I would take every single time.

Long on AUD/USD on a dip lower near 0.713. Stop would be below 0.7080.

The process of beating our new site theme into submission took me longer than anticipated. I usually expect delays but I was forced to burn many frustrating hours figuring out various problems on my own as tech support staff was still on holiday. In addition I had underestimated how much legwork would be required to update older posts to fit the new format. Anyway, we’re getting there but I ask [...]

Let’s Try This Again

Alright, picture this scenario. It’s two days before Christmas and participation is drying up. Equities continue to run in churn mode near a medium term support zone. Patience is running thin and retail is shifting its attention from watching charts to wrapping Christmas presents and preparing for a seasonal culinary onslaught.

Sounds exactly like the type of tape that would tempt me to go hunting for entries. I didn’t grab a long position yesterday as I was bogged down with site development and dealing with lazy customer alienating Spanish shipping companies. On the upside my Spanish curse word vocabulary is growing steadily. Anyway, this is my next best [...]
