Monday Morning Briefing

Welcome to our morning briefing. Here we are reviewing short term setups ahead of the NYSE opening bell. If you are a scalper or swing trader then these setups may be of interest to you. As usual keep in mind that these are short term setups although they could be used as early entries for more longer term positions.

I hope you enjoyed your summer weekend – I  once again spent most of it in the lair implementing a few new improvements and features into Crazy.Ivan (e.g. the messaging cough cough). Frankly, I’m not complaining – I enjoy this doing this stuff and I wouldn’t have it any other way. As the old saying goes: If you love what you do you [...]

1) A strong bull move. Should have all the classic signs of a strong move. Shallow or one bar pullbacks, increasing range to the upside, many bars closing at or near the highs, many consecutive bull closes.

2) A Krastins Retest Variation Sell setup which has been entered. This will trap shorts into a top picking exercise. The odds are strong that an [...]

Awaiting The Market Oracle

Welcome to our morning briefing. Here we are reviewing short term setups ahead of the NYSE opening bell. If you are a scalper or swing trader then these setups may be of interest to you. As usual keep in mind that these are short term setups although they could be used as early entries for more longer term positions.

Once again we find ourselves in sideways mode ahead of Ben Bernanke’s speech before before the House Financial Services Committee at 10 a.m. ET. You all know how I feel about the fact that we have given one institution (and in particular one man) this much power over our financial markets. It seems that nothing else matters anymore – earnings [...]
