Summertime

Alright, it’s time to talk about the ole’ greenback. Which, in case you haven’t been paying attention whilst increasing your odds of skin cancer at some overpriced beach resort, has been dropping rather precipitously since the beginning of the year. You may counter that a correction was long overdue since the Dollar has had a pretty good run over the past two years. And you would be technically correct – in relative terms compared with everything else the Dollar has been on a solid run since mid 2014. But in real purchasing power today’s Dollar is a whopping 27% weaker than when Will Smith’s big hit was hitting the charts in the summer of 2002.

Wait Your Turn

Do not despair for the Mole is on the case. While many of you equity addicts are impatiently waiting for your turn to commit ritual seppuku I for one have been monitoring crude with increasing interest.

Timeless Charts

It’s crickets on the setup front, nothing salient on my momo charts either. Which means it’s time to relax, take a step back, and review the big picture across the board. Although point & figure charts seem a bit antiquated in this day and age I have never understood the negative opinion some traders hold against them. After all PnFs simply give us an opportunity to cancel out an inherent but sometimes deceptive aspect of your vanilla candle or line charts. And that is TIME.

Long Term Perspectives

When looking for a good theme for this post I pondered for a while and then decided to use a picture of a bristlecone pine, which are widely considered to be the oldest living trees in the world. You can find them near the Nevada/California border and if you wind up traveling in the area then I strongly recommend that head over to Bishop and from there head up high up into the White Mountains.
