Support Zones

I’m looking for support zones here as I don’t really trust this sell off. I’ll get to the why later but suffice to say that momentum on the way down has been rather pitiful which strongly points toward the scenario I proposed two weeks back: A pre-bear-slaughtering-season-shake-out followed by a Santa Rally pinning equities near positive for the year. After that it’s every man for himself – I expect a huge shake out for 2016.

I mentioned momentum on the way down and this is what I was talking about. The sheer fact that we enjoyed such a smashing swing trading session yesterday is a bit out of character. This is the spot where gravity [...]

Epiphany

I was staring at the E-Mini futures this morning – it must have been almost ten minutes just pondering and trying to figure out what was bothering me so much about this chart. And then suddenly I realized what was going on – and what also became apparent was that, no matter how long you are in the game, the tape still can always pull one over on you. The mighty Mole is not immune.

So the big epiphany I speak of was that nothing really has changed, folks. Remember all the sideways crap we endured for most of this year? And then suddenly we got a big slide (almost) out of nowhere – which we actually played quite well, but I digress. What I’m [...]

Furious And Furious Friday

We got movement people! And obviously I’m not talking about equities where we’re still spasmodically bouncing around in the same six month trading range. Booooring! Unless of course you are the evil lair’s official Swing Slayer and that coveted title is already taken by Skynard. You will have to defeat him first and then send me one of his digits to assume his position. It also helps if you either have at least one dragon or an army of White Walkers at your disposal. Either that or just send me money – I am surprisingly corruptible.

Okay, let’s get the tedious charts out of the way first. Equities – I’m risking a tiny long [...]

Campaign Updates

I’ve accumulated a good number of positions over the past week and decided to not take on anything more for the day. We still haven’t really taken off across major indices and in line with my adjusted modus operandi of remaining nimble I don’t want to get over exposed. So let’s do a quick run down of some of our recent victims:

The spoos thus far are looking good to go and I’m moving my stop to 2112 now which is at break/even.

AUD/USD – that’s a campaign I’ve been holding since last week. It somehow rolled over nail or something as it went completely flat and rolled back to the downside. Stop out at my [...]
