Friday 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.

2014-12-05_EURUSD_briefing

After yesterday’s surprise spiker higher the EUR/USD  is still clinging to its 100-hour but may just fall away today. However, if it manages to crawl back above the 100-hour I’ll be long with a stop below the NLBL at 1.237. Short positions are possible here but it’s possible that we’ll just gyrate around directionless for a while, so I’ll give that one a miss.

2014-12-05_ZB_briefing

Bonds – the 30-year is done re-testing the 100-hour (well, barely) and on a push above the NLBL I’ll throw 1/2 R to the bond market wolves. Stop below 141’20.

Quark’s Busy Wednesday

Courtesy of a raging Dollar (tee-heee!) we’re going to have a very busy morning. So get off fartbook or whatever attention whoring social media sinkhole you’re wasting valuable daylight in, and let’s focus on all those juicy setups that the mighty Mole continues to extract from Mrs. Market.

For she’s a raving bitch, but if you know how to sweet talk her and play by the rules she’ll let you run your little schemes behind the curtain. Think Quark on Deep Space Nine – now that’s a smile only a mother can love.

2014-12-03_spoos_briefing

Equities are coiled up and ready to roll, should they choose to do so. The mojo here leaves a lot to be desired and I’m operating with utmost caution. However, given this current candle holds I’m tempted to add another 1/2 R with a stop below those converging SMAs (i.e. ES 2063). If this sucker finally gets going it’ll be a sight to behold. If not then we’re looking at a another leg down – be prepared.

2014-12-03_CL_briefing

Crude – trying to make up its mind – down we go or is it going to be a reversal? Yes m’am! I’m in either way and although I’m short right now Quark assures me that my long entries are waiting near 68.4.

2014-12-03_USDCAD_briefing

USD/CAD – I’m long here as soon as it closes an hourly above 1.14. Stop below a rising 100-hour SMA. Not the worst setup you can take…

But wait there’s more – meet me in the lair:

By the way, be cautious around 10:00am Eastern as we’re getting the new ISM Non-Manufacturing purchasing managers index (PMI) numbers – always good for a few shake out gyrations.

Today’s Ferengi rule of acquisition:

Nothing is more important than your health … except for your money.

This ought to keep you rats busy for a while. See you later this afternoon.

2014-11-18_NQ_briefing

Equities still gyrating within their range, however the NQ is looking a bit more gung-ho and I’m grabbing 1/2R right here with a stop below 4203.

2014-11-18_crude_briefing

Crude just breached it’s 100-hour SMA and is back for the obligatory retest – NLSL right underneath – I love these types of setups. Long here with a stop below the 25-hour.
