Hand Me The Machete

Boy what a mess. I think a special set of tools may be needed to navigate this tape. A set of razor sharp machetes may just do the trick. Clearly trading these swings isn’t for the faint of heart, but it can be profitable if you’re one of those nimble adrenalin junkies. Overall there isn’t much left to say at this stage that I haven’t already expressed over the past few weeks. So if you’re participating here then let’s limit ourselves to simply trading what’s directly ahead of us:

Engaging Autopilot

Apparently grilled snapper has been a popular choice as of late, as participation has been dying down and equities are now officially running on autopilot. Curiously participation as shown yesterday on the Zero indicator was mainly bearish with prices pushing sideways and then climbing higher overnight. What most likely follows next over the coming days will be nothing but stop runs and more noise aimed at hassling any remaining participants.

A Game Of Pinball

It seems that, until the presidential election is finally over, we will have to resign ourselves to playing an extended game of pinball. Of course sitting the remaining weeks out altogether and going on autumn vacation is an attractive option, but my subs are rather unforgiving when it comes to slacking on the job. So I’ll be doing my best to guide you all though the unfolding mess to the best of my abilities. Be advises however that playing the swings during a sideways period can easily lead to over trading. Make sure you are aware of the potential traps and thus keep your position sizing to a minimum whilst allowing for large stops.

Not Out Of The Woods

Yesterday’s low participation stop run on E-Mini came within a tick or two of my current trail which still sits near my break/even point. I assure you that there was no foresight or technical skill involved whatsoever and I’ll ascribe it to pure luck. We’ve had quite a bit of that in the last few weeks and it tells me that I probably shouldn’t push my good karma quota and treat lightly.
