The Early Bird

Whenever participation on the board dies down I pay extra attention as market fatigue usually suggests a profitable move is just beyond the horizon. Yesterday’s session in the E-Mini was anything but exciting, however it served us a nice support range in which I managed to place a long entry. I hope you guys can shake off your mid summer trading blues as promising entry opportunities are popping up all over the place right now. As the saying goes – the early bird catches the worm.

So let’s cut through the crap, shall we? I’ll be happy to tell you in advance what’s going to happen. Yellen is going to deliver her usual litany of reasons for not raising interest rates (namely a shitty economy based on cooked books, fudged numbers, and of course low employment participation) whilst continuing to dangle the magic hike carrot in the [...]
