VWAP Reversion Galore
10:30am EDT: Okay, this is getting ridiculous:
Island tops usually resolve once you’re half way inside the gap. The question you need to ask yourself is this: Do you really want to trade this tape? I am still sitting on my August puts but the way we’re ticking I’m starting to have doubts that we’ll see any downside any time soon – very tempted to dump those turds and escape the emotional roller coaster. It’s been over two weeks of this – I am emotionally exhausted and the bears remain MIA.
If they can’t even get this gap closed you got to re-evaluate your odds. When’s the last time we’ve seen a forced sell off? I frankly can’t remember – it’s been nothing but up side for two weeks. Should we drop by about now? Abso-diddly-lutely! For about ten days just about – not happening. Yes, eventually we’ll see downside but by then we might be ramped up so sky high or burned so much theta that it won’t matter. However, I have come too far to let this thing go right here – and I will have to follow the example of the samurai in that only in embracing death can you achieve victory.
Anyway, if you’re watching the NQ or the ES – the old VWAP reversion game continues. We are above on both right now, so further upside seems to be in the cards.
10:50am EDT: I just received an email from one intrepid rat, which I would like to share:
I really try to stay out of your business Mole, but Lester significantly brings down the quality of your blog. His problems, typical of most addicts, affect all members of the family. Cleaning
house should include all problems. I’m sure I am not the first to say this, but he has become far more than an amusement, distraction, sad case everyone wants to help. And he won’t get better. Fuck’s sake, how many months has he been given opportunity?
I have been sitting between a rock and hard time with Lester. In some ways I felt bad for him and had high hopes that he would start learning his lessons at some point. But as I (and many others) have pointed out in the past – Lester has a gambling problem and I’m afraid he won’t ever get better. We all told him several times to seek help and it seem that he simply ignores any advice that has been offered and continues to burn through any cash he can get his hands on. I’m very tempted to cut the cord but decided that I’ll leave it up to the community to decide. Please vote in the new poll I just put up – I’ll do whatever the group decides by Monday.
1:00pm EDT: Okay, I’m worn out – not only is this tape a major pain in the ass but on top of this all this happened this morning:
- Website crashed and I was spending 30 min with my hosting company getting it running again.
- Disqus seems to have problems today as well – what’s with the huge icons?
- My SMS gateway suddenly stopped delivering.
- NinjaTrader crashed because it couldn’t deliver the emails due to problem #1.
I’m mentally exhausted – let’s just get this day over with – nothing but VWAP reversion anyway…
Oh, and I meant to talk about FX when the damn site went down:
Those are some HUGE candles – I sense a major disturbance in the force. I tell you right now though that the pounding in the Dollar is quite bullish for equities.
