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 [...]

There’s not one day that goes by when I don’t work my butt off to keep myself on the winning side of the tape. You’ve seen me post quite a bit of educational content as of late and it seems to have been well received as we got several likes by stocktwits and some renowned players. But at the end of the day knowledge and even skill means absolutely zilch if you don’t show up for work every single day and press that button when it’s time to take action.
