Under The Weather

by The MoleNovember 11, 2016

I will be taking the day off as I have been very much under the weather over the past week and may have caught some kind of weird cold or flu. Hopefully a bit more rest will clear things up so that I’ll be ready to return in full force next Monday. With the elections finally out of the way I am very much looking forward to the pre-X-Mas trading season.

No Hefeweizen for the Mole today – it seems I’ll be sticking to hot tea and chicken soup this weekend. By the way I posted another E-Mini session update last night, you may want to check that one out. See you on Monday morning.

    Sick on a Friday… suspicious. I think we are going to need to see a doctor’s note ;o)

  • Yoda

    rest well Mole. Fridays have been a snooze lately.

    I swear by this stuff, killed off a sore throat/nasal drip for me yesterday.

    very important – since I don’t get sick leave until 6 months vetted employment.

    Treasury Bonds have really taken it in the @ss this week.

    I don’t think there are many interested parties, but just in case.
    Big Term, it could be just another 2013, OR a major change.

    your call.

    seems the Trump economic team/agenda is changing inflation views everywhere…

  • Yoda

    Call me a masochist but I find today’s blood bath in gold actually bullish. From my lens, whoever was long before isn’t anymore.
    Waiting for a spike low to start building back a long position.

    I think the mark is 1207….that will kill about all the new bulls whom boarded the train since Feb…..if they get it that close under 1200 spike to swipe some stops would make sense…

  • Yoda

    Definitively. Not touching it before I see some bottoming action first on the 60 min:

    took me a minute to regain focus there…

    traders are forcing OPEC hands here….if they agree on production cuts at meeting it will be painful for CL shorts…

  • ridingwaves

    moved stop up to 6 on OSIR…

    why don’t you invite her for a fast ride in your pimp https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3f6d451e605f58fc29ce36c02d0963f642efcad035e07eb207a7eba8badc5eed.png mobile? 😉

  • Yoda

    GC got a hammer on the 60 min.

    Thanks mate. Yeah, we’re covered – my wife has a whole closet full of alternative treatments including pure ascorbate. So I am in good hands and word has it I am expected to survive the weekend.

  • http://evilspeculator.com Sir Mole III

    LOL – so true but I’m not faking it. Actually I have been feeling like shit since last Saturday and have not left the house since. Have been toughing it out since but today I just didn’t have a post in me. Sorry guys.

  • Yoda

    I like the price action now. Building back position in GDXJ

    Very confusing GIF – not sure if need to be aroused or disgusted…

  • Yoda

    If it’s the latter, blame it on the flu.

    SLV broke the daily 144 MA decisively.

    I will not be enthused about the shiny stuff for quite some time.

  • OJuice

    The rest of the weeks posts were very high quality so I’m sure folks will find it in their hearts to forgive you.

  • Ronebadger

    depends on how long you look at it…

    I dunno – I’m more into toned/skinny… but I’m old fashioned.

    took a big shot on NUGT today. thrilled to be out with a paltry .32% gain. DUST was the play since wed. shame i wasn’t buying. Instead in and out of NUGT yesterday and today. picking up pennies in front of a steamroller. GDX looks like it’s headed for $20.

    burried on TZA. IWM has had major legs since Wed.

  • kudra

    nice call on this one a few days ago. has been on absolute fire.

  • http://gerb-reloaded.blogspot.com/ Gold_Gerb

    I loved falling knives. To a fault.
    so I developed a way to find estimates. but if you look hard at knifes, estimates can be conservative. Even then, the rule of *Never say Never* is in effect.
    My best experience so far is to wait. Wait for the first white candle.

    ..haven’ seen one yet.

    Everyone around me is sick, its that time of year but hope you feel better soon.

    Shouldn’t this chart look more bullish with what has happened this week?
    Things that make you go hmmmm https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ef9c51f734245216ca30539d75b8e2e7f4b3d685997f867d3815e9fe0048c2a3.png

    Like them Keltner’s…
    knowing how you like to play with bands – try to make a look-back period (3rd parameter) shorter. Mine are set below primary average.

    Mole, what are your thoughts on /HG?

  • http://evilspeculator.com Sir Mole III

    I should have sold the rip! 😉

    Right now I don’t see an entry opportunity yet. But near 2.5 I would be all over it like white on rice.

  • http://evilspeculator.com Sir Mole III

    Fucking awesome. I actually buy a lot of shirts there – they are of very high quality and worth the price.

  • Tomcat

    Mole, what chart are you looking at to get this certainty to go long @2.5?
