I hope you enjoyed a few days off – I certainly did and although I would love to boast that I spent my time productively I mostly wound up catching up with a few shows and training with my guys. Even Mole the machine needs to recharge his batteries every once in a while. However there’s only so much idle time I can tolerate and I intend to hit the ground running here as we are now heading into one of the most exciting periods of the year. So snap out of your tryptophan induced slumbers and let’s get to work!
On the equities side we are holding strong and you should move your stop below the 25-day SMA around 2077. We are now facing medium term overhead [...]

Before we get to the setups here’s a USD/JPY Update. You may have grabbed some longs there with me last [...]
We’ve come quite a long way since the grizzles were ordering party hats and truck loads of Cristal in celebration of the impending August doom & gloom slide into the abyss. Since those lows we have regained some 270 juicy S&P handles and it looks like we’re ready to transition into the annual X-Mas bear hunting season. However, it’s my duty as the crusty bubble bursting host of this digital domain of trading doom to once again caution you to curb your damn enthusiasm.
