Christmas Momo Update

Winter solstice must be near as all the trolls seem to be coming out of the woodwork attempting to make themselves at home and stir up trouble. Which I of course greatly enjoy squashing with my Thor size ban hammer I keep around just for such occasions. But quite frankly we all have much more important things to attend to than to waste time on posers and wave wankers. For ’tis the season of giving and Cool Santa dropped by early this year to deliver a sled full of charting goodies. Let’s get to it:

Barbarians At The Gate

This doesn’t seem to be my month as I had an extremely crappy day yesterday. And I’m not even referring to the almost instant stop outs I racked up on the E-Mini and the EUR/USD (fortunately position sizing was small in anticipation of monkey business). So what happened was that I got in touch with my hosting company about some strange errors a few readers and I kept seeing when loading the site.

What Goes Up…

It’s FOMC day and after Bill Dudley apparently muttered something about Bitcoin crypto currencies across the board exploded higher. BTC right now is pushing > 11,200 and there’s no doubt that it’ll be at 20,000 by the end of the day and 1,000,000 by Friday. Alright I may be using a bit of sarcasm here but I assure you that it’s not out of butt hurt (as I’m still holding a few coins) but due to tragically being equipped at birth with common sense and even worse, a relatively functioning memory of financial and human history. I know, it sucks to be me but someone’s got to carry that burden.
