Freaky Forex Friday

Seems like most of you rats have finally turned into mindless credit card swipin’ shopping bags draggin’ consumer monkeys. Not the Mole – no sireee – all my Christmas shopping is done in July, when the weather doesn’t suck!

That’s more like it – pass me the Glühwein!! Alright, less of you means more goodies for me and I’m talking juicy short term setups – especially the Forex side is looking rather festive this morning. And unlike Santa the Mole is dishing it out all year – plus I favor you naughty ones.

Palladium – looking good here and I already grabbed a long with a stop below 789. With a bit of mojo perhaps that daily NLSL can be reversed today.

AUD/JPY – it’s battling that daily NLBL but is also supported by the rising 25-hour SMA. Got to get out of the gate or it’ll slip lower again. I’m long here with a stop below 97.2.

You have been briefed – now have fun but keep it frosty. Depending on participation I’ll do a follow up post this afternoon.

Scott’s Weekend Setups

As far as the stock market goes, we are in bounce territory, but whether we bounce from here or a little further down is unknown. We have a long setup, a gap open buy, but to my eyes this does not have enough risk/reward to be a compelling proposition. If we hit the trigger point I do advise banking profit on your shorts though.

In any case there are a few other setups I’m taking myself. Make sure you wait for the triggers though, no jumping in early ;-)

Here’s copper – shooting star short in down trend.

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.

So the GBP/JPY is painting a pretty distinct divergence right now. Not a reason to grab long positions but it’s an early warning sign that we may see a bounce today.

The conditions are favorable for a dead cat bounce at least – here’s the hourly SPX cash. As you can see it’s managed to hold the 100-hour SMA as I previously suggested. The SMA is still rising however and that puts the onus on the bulls to stave off further selling. Even if we see a push higher today however there is still the possibility for it turning into a dead cat bounce. We’ll have to closely monitor the internals today – so keep an eye on the Zero Lite for divergences and early signs of monkey business.

Here’s the hourly spoos in the context of my BBs – we’re somewhere in the mid of nowhere right now. What’s interesting is the tentative rising diagonal it’s producing. We may see a quick stab lower near the open to scare out some of the children – I don’t think the bulls are in real trouble until below ES 1916.

But we have work to do this morning, so let’s get rolling. Here’s crude which looks like a good buy above 107.39. Stop below 107 – and I mean below, don’t tack it right there.

EUR/CAD – attempt to paint a floor and although we may see a retest of that NLSL I want to be long above that 100-hour SMA.

If you weren’t a sub last week then you may be experiencing a pounding pressure in your cranium. May I suggest a dose of Excedrin – Oberyn Martell strongly recommends it. Less invasive (home-grown organic) treatment available below the fold:
