A Happy Easter

by The MoleApril 18, 2019

As I’m officially in charge of the sarcasm department here at Evil Speculator I am known to occasionally post irreverent themes around major holidays. But not this time. Not today, I’m afraid. Although I do not consider myself to be a strongly devout person I was raised within a strongly catholic culture (Austria) as a child. Since then my personal beliefs may have wavered over time, but even during my hyper-agnostic years I always maintained a deep admiration and gratitude for the immense cultural heritage I and others around me had been bestowed with and were permitted to take for granted.

So I have to admit, when my wife stormed into my office on Monday night telling me me that the roof of Notre Dame was engulfed in flames it deeply shocked me to the core and I’m not ashamed to say that I actually had to hold back tears. During a solemn dinner an hour later I experienced a slight pinch in my chest (no worries my heart is okay) and ended up meditating for a while in order to relieve some of the stress and despair I had been experiencing.

For the past few days I have been pondering why this event managed to affect me so deeply and upon further reflection I decided to share my thoughts with anyone willing to listen. If you’re not interested in touchy-feely stuff – good for you and feel free to simply skip further down to the charts πŸ˜‰

For me as a European/American hybrid the Cathedral de Notre Dame represents not so much an impressive medieval relic but the very essence of a people that I am directly descended from. Its greatness in architecture, beauty, and attention to detail – the artifacts, sculptures and paintings all combined do not merely represent the pinnacle of human creation but are an expression of transcendence and faith in a higher purpose far beyond that of our earthly realm.

It is this very same commitment to a higher purpose – a devotion to creating heaven on earth – that is also reflected in the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, and which has continued to evoke feelings of awe and amazement many centuries past his death. His body may have long turned into dust but his spirit, the very essence of his inner beliefs and perception of the universe, all live on to this very day. Through his creations Bach manages to reach beyond time and space, delighting us whilst connecting with our souls on a deeply emotional level.

And perhaps it is this connection to our past that triggered such a strong emotional response in me when seeing Notre Dame engulfed in flames. Yes we may be able to use modern technology and Ubisoft’s 3D laser scans to rebuild the lost structures within our lifetime. But there are certain things in life that cannot be simply created or recreated from within a spiritual vacuum.

One we all hope to experience at least once in our lifetime is that of true and ever lasting love. The ingredients as well as the timing need to be just right to create a spark and allow love to flourish. I believe the same holds true for art or architecture that goes beyond practicality or is aimed at satisfying contemporary whims or necessities.

I for one console myself with the notion that this tragic incident may perhaps end up being a blessing in disguise. Assuming of course it manages to rekindle that same sense of transcendence – a pursuit of a higher purpose beyond the practical and scientific – that our ancestors all shared and which has become a rare commodity in a world that has increasingly turned self-absorbed and materialistic.

If we can somehow discover a renewed purpose in the process of recreating one of our most significant cultural achievements then there may just be hope that our future progeny will similarly revere us and cherish what we will leave behind.

It is with that sentiment of hope that I am wishing you all a very relaxing and happy Easter holiday.

Okay before I kick you out the door – we’ve got a promising looking setup on the E-Mini this morning. I just took out a long position with a stop < ES 2889. It’s a bit of a long shot ahead of a long holiday and I reserve the right to exit before the EOS if it doesn’t manage to get out of the gate after the open.

I am open to a short position if stopped out but would need to see a retest – a last kiss goodbye – of 2889 first. Possible target range on the short side is around 2850 plus minus a few handles.

Part of the reason for this long entry is that UVOL:DVOL yesterday were running almost neck on neck and then suddenly separated into the close. This does not mean we don’t see more downside but the potential for a counter response this morning are good.

My EUR/USD long campaign ended with 0.75R in profits this morning during a sudden sell off. I didn’t see anything on the news front that would have triggered this, so maybe it just ran out of juice. Which wouldn’t surprise me to be honest as it didn’t elicit a lot of mojo and was plagued by volatile swings on the way up.

    Regarding BIO, my current short of the BIO Index is turning out to be my best trade of the year as of this moment.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts in this post @molecool:disqus. While I personally have an “alternative” belief system, I have respect for others’ beliefs/religions. I had visited Notre Dame during my time in France. It was (and still is) awe inspiring.

    Regarding the fire, I know many view fire as negative/destructive. The timing of this incident (whether accidental or intentional) during this holy period is symbolic. However, fire can also be viewed as cleansing and renewing.

    The BIO Index is down 12% over the past 2 weeks. It’s currently at about 6436 at this moment. I don’t want to get greedy but will stick with the trade as long as price momentum remains relatively strong to the downside. This index was all the way down to 5026 back in December but I have no clue if it will re-test that number. I’ll just keep monitoring it. . .

    Happy Easter, Everyone! Jesus DID take the prize for history’s worst “railroad-job”. All for preaching peace and good will, healing peoples’ ails and for numerous miracles. Yes, he stepped on a few toes and did say he was the Son of God; and for this, he allowed himself to be executed. To quote Harry Guardino, playing Barabbas in King of Kings: “That man is dying in my place; why should he do that? I never did anything for him.” But, Jesus came back in a couple days and SHOWED them!

    “…dying in MY place…”, indeed.

    Happy Easter Sir Mole! Well said. I’m not a very religious person, but raised Catholic as well, and certainly see value in religion. There are certain core values that I think are important that are lacking these days.

    Talking to some older teachers they have noticed a lack of basic manners in kids these days. Forget work ethic and other things that have been discussed, but simple things like please, thank you, holding the door for someone, saying excuse me, etc. I wouldn’t even consider these religious teachings per say, although they tend to be taught more in religious households (at least here in the US). Personally I think a little mean reversion back towards religion wouldn’t hurt.

    Chief and Guys. I have been following European Financials EUFN. An uptrend since end of December and channeling nicely. An expanding triangle can be seen also. EUFN overbought weekly and daily charts and can correct at anytime i.e. upper channel. However there is a resistance zone approx 20.50 – 21.00 and not shown weekly upper cloud matches this resistance zone. Keep in mind that upper and lower cloud boundaries act as magnets. Possible still more upside before a possible correction The 21 and 55 exp moving averages are in a bullish alignment and rising and the 233 ema has just turned upward Shown EUFN daily chart https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e2ab08871e1d441246dd4410238ec17409bef76234201cc822c488ca632407d9.png JULIE

    And THAT is key. Epiphanies, sudden blasts of insight / realization, are usually met when living in the moment, devoid of ego. The destroyed church, art, music, et al are capable of inducing these moments. The quantum aspects of science, which is usually opposing spirituality, seems to be directly connected if observed objectively. Society will consume you alive if you attempt to live in the egoless state………

    Just closed my short crude for a small -.16R Loss. Not liking the price action here and I think pre-extra long weekend closes on crude can be specious indications at best. So holding over the WE is not worth the extra risk.

    BL USO at a very important inflection point (1) weekly cloud (2) 61.8% retracement NOW as you can see the cloud is thin at this point which means resistance is minimal BUT weekly RSI previously went below 33.33 which indicates now RSI at 60 poses resistance Now daily chart corroborates the weekly chart showing the hesitation and 8 day consolidation. The consolidation has relieved the daily overbought condition BUT USO now must clear and go above the cloud I am monitoring closely JULIE https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6d9b1573c41deb0e5f0a83f34dd677b0738af9c48c7b0f49b04f88c15629828a.png

    Agree wholeheartedly re: discipline and manners. A function of parenting, IMO.

    Disagree wholeheartedly with the “need” for religion. Without religion, there would be far less death and destruction in the world, perpetrated by those who believe in a different Santa Claus than their neighbor does. Look at a map of world religions. The particular faith that most adherents have is simply an accident of the geography of where they were born.

    EURUSD sold off on lower than expected German Manufacturing PMIs.
    Not a traditionally important data print, but it has been carved into the macro narrative over the past 2 months, (last PMI print was good for 1% move in EUR as well).
    Macro narrative behind higher EURUSD, which is well in the face of the carry (-3% a year), is predicated on global economic resurgence in line with better data from China, and the expected shift in demand for Eur assets, German Mnfg PMI the key indicator market looks for in that.

    I tend to agree that religion isn’t “needed,” but I think for many people that lack a moral compass religion helps, and even for those that don’t lack morals, it can still be a guide. As Mole said, if people would strive for something greater than just the bottom dollar and the black and white, it could certainly help humanity.

  • Sp00nman

    For sure, but I wonder what it is more recently that makes kids that much worse (or different) than before? Historically teenagers and at latest early 20’s was the time to have kids, and is anyone really grown up then? Most people aren’t. I think a weaker family unit is partly to blame and two parents that work. The deviation away from religion has also affected kids. I don’t care what anyone says, but the thought that “God is watching me,” when I was thinking of doing something bad has SOME effect on children, and at the very least makes them think twice once in a while. πŸ˜€

    Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t think religion is a necessity, just that it takes some extra work on the parents part to keep the kids inline to supplant the brainwashing that religion does. It seems like most parents aren’t upto the task these days.

  • Mark Shinnick

    Yes…see it everywhere…there is a greatly-reduced set of consequences for wrongdoing spanning everywhere in society. Law and order is not what it used to be; the psychopaths against society have been winning big.

  • http://www.captainboom.com/ captainboom

    I think a moral compass is innate to most humans, given that we’ve evolved to be a highly successful social animal. It’s in everyone’s best interest to come to society with the traits passed along in our DNA to play nice with others. I’d also argue good parenting likely has a positive reinforcing effect.

    I’m reminded of an article I read a few years ago, based on research showing that secular children were more altruistic than religious children. I found the article, and it’s worth following the reference to the actual research in the journal Current Biology, titled “The Negative Association between Religiousness and Children’s Altruism across the World”
