Yesterday’s post highlighting the increasingly volatile situation we are facing on the currency side couldn’t have been more prescient, as earlier this morning the British Pound suddenly found itself on the receiving end of a 6% flash crash during Asian trading hours. Some of the losses have been recouped ever since but that will be of little consolation to anyone who may have been long the GBP overnight.
It’s that dreaded day after Independence Day. The weather is gorgeous and I don’t really feel like trading either. The thought of just phoning it in had occurred to me, but as the new month just rolled over I thought I may as well take another peek at our monthly charts. Which uncovered quite some interesting perspectives that I’m eager to share. But no worries – we’re keeping it light and easy today. Consider this a purist’s approach to market analysis as we’re going to ignore everything but Net-Lines.
As of this morning all remains well on the Western Front. Bearish positions have been completely decimated over the past three sessions in what must have been the most violent bear trap of this year. Any surviving grizzlies are now being pursued and picked up one by one, thwarting any desperate attempts to reach safety. Public lashings and indiscriminate pillaging will continue until moral improves.
Wakey Wakey! We’ve got work to do! I just popped up my charts and it seems we have some attractive setups this morning that probably won’t wait around for long. Equities in particular are looking tempting at the moment so grab yourself a cup of java or tea and then let’s get to work.
