Feeling Under The Weather

by The MoleApril 20, 2018

I had a bit of a restless night and after finally falling out of bed in the morning I noticed that the cheek underneath my right eye was red and strangely swollen. IAMAD but it looks like sinusitis caused by seasonal allergies. Which unfortunately is a condition I have to face every single year.

Either way I officially look like a deformed swamp monster out of a 1950s horror movie today. Not feeling so great either to be honest so I think I’ll just call it a week as I won’t be able to give you my best today.

Here’s one chart though I definitely wanted you to see. Looks like I missed two stop runs on the E-Mini by just a few ticks. I think we should do do a betting pool on whether or not my trail survives the weekend πŸ˜‰

Anyway, I trust that my campaign management update posted yesterday was clear enough to get you through the day in one piece.

Enjoy the weekend!

    420 today, so maybe just stand down wind from some Spanish burners and let the drug put u to sleep….

  • BKXtoZERO

    Out of DWT 8.71 from 8.23 yesterday. RSI looking like this was correction, 70+ likely will be hit imho

  • BKXtoZERO

    hope you feel better Mole.

  • https://evilspeculator.com Sir Mole III

    Thanks BKX – I’m going to do a bit of video editing this afternoon which doesn’t require much concentration. It’s a shame though as I had sushi plans tonight but obviously I’m not going to leave the house looking like this.

  • https://evilspeculator.com Sir Mole III

    You have no idea how big cannabis is here in Spain. Porros everywhere and although it’s not officially legal the cops don’t care. Personally I never touched the stuff – for some reason I don’t have any attraction towards drugs. The only stuff I have experimented with is modafinil for obvious reasons. Works well for me at low dosage. But again I only use it very rarely on heads-down coding days.

    You kind of look like an old sibling of mine… πŸ˜‰

    it seems to be big everywhere I travel outside of Peru, they were pretty tight it seemed…

  • BKXtoZERO

    actually, I would gladly “trade” w/ you or anyone…. my brain hurts, this ENS thing is a gift that keeps giving. things morphing….. not liking it. hard to start every day getting my ass kicked.

  • Yoda

    A breach of that yellow T-L could spell bar karma for the bulls.
    For an OPEX week the bullish momentum is surprisingly weak

    Sending prayers for your full recovery. You always take such good care of your crew. Recipe for salt bath to clear lymph system. Epsom Salts 1/4 to 1/2 cup
    Sea Salt the same dosage, Baking Soda the same dosage
    Normal clearing, I use the 1/4 cup, but for allergy season the 1/2 cup is better and I have used all the way up to 1 cup of each. Prepare with the hottest water that you can handle and stay in for at least 20 min. Given to me by a massage therapist many years ago.

    Well said for equity volitility…very critical area now for volatility….its holding its support.

  • https://evilspeculator.com Sir Mole III

    Yes, actually they might. I didn’t believe in this shit but learned to maintain an open mind as the practitioner is finding stuff I don’t even told her about. My wife is learning it as well over the past two years – takes a lot of study and practice. But it’s an alternative healing approach that preventative and hey, at our age what do we have to lose?? πŸ˜‰

  • Brishort

    hummmm…. true as far as the enjoyability of the e-scooter…. but the market only cares about your plane trips! Take care curing the sickness.

    Since you aren’t willing to travel for the greater market insight good, I will take the relay. I will be away for a week on vacations starting next week myself. Time to find out if the market cares about me taking a plane!!!

    (at the same time Brishort steals the graph and adds it to its incognito secret stash of GG golden goods….)

  • https://evilspeculator.com Sir Mole III

    I don’t use a wrist band BUT I use a copper bracelet connected to a grounding plug at night. Helps me/us sleep MUCH better. Bad night yesterday but in general I wake up a lot less overnight. You should try it! Some people buy special sheets that are grounded or grounding mats. My wife simply put some copper mesh (very soft) into a bracelet and stitched it together. Then connected the copper to a grounding wire that goes to an outlet. Works like a charm and I sleep well with it.

    why would someone call Banned, ‘griz’?

    kudos!

  • Mark Shinnick

    Yeah, % is cracking, I’m getting a bit big short. Something creeping been going on….like some kind of super-inflection.

  • Darkthirty

    Check the symmetry… 2880 top of III-2550 A -2805 B -currently c of C and that leaves you with? Don’t have a readable chart to see where a 2475 retrace fits.

    Good eyes! .382 retrace from 1810

    So, I have a lot off EW issues right now. I’m counting this as Major 2 down but am ready to get a little more aggressive PII down. I don’t trade that timeframe so will just be happy 1 wave at a time.

  • Darkthirty

    like to see 618/786 for second waves

    @Darkthirty:disqus Here’s the EW. TL analysis will help keep me objective. Counts of this size are not best practice in my experience but I can’t look away from maybe the clearest 5 wave bull market ever. 3 waves down next? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e6eca2d89c20755313bd9b22e7b7832baef57bc743e7aae9a1ff61a8d96aae7f.png

  • Darkthirty

    Yes, that does look viable, with the open gaps overhead, and the corrective structure we’re currently, the top is possibly iii of 5. The wimpy 2nd wave would call for a robust 4th. Regardless, the current global economics does support a 618/786 retrace of the whole wave…….Thanks!

    I see FANGS weakening, most appear to have tops in, also that good news from AMZN would have been good for a huge rally in all tech, didn’t happen….. these are warning signs. market is STILL not trading like a bull market.

  • BKXtoZERO

    Thanks… just saw this. I really need something… will try this on my freaking head somehow…

  • BKXtoZERO

    Empty Nose is where they severe too many nerves inside the nose and remove too much tissue. You no longer sense airflow, the brain sees this as suffocation and puts out constant suffocation alarm. This sucks enough during the day but at night you get your ass kicked because your system can’t breathe on it’s own…. then there is dryness, nerve pains that go from the nose to the eyes and into the brain…. like all day today with my sister visiting from out of town. 2 pain pills and went out for the day with everyone….. still sucked.

    SPX I stated in a previous post the daily 21 ema was the line in the sand . I smell a rat (bear trap) On Friday the 21 ema and a lower uptrend line held. I have not shorted yet. Now SPX has broken down thru horizontal dotted blue line support and the CCI (20) lower uptrend line has had a bearish crossover. Now a bearish close below the 21 ema and lower uptrend line will be confirmed by the MACD bearish signal line cross. POSSIBLE BEAR TRAP GUYS JULIE https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/81d66e6c94071fee6970abfaaba1241e3e168ed73785237e337c2b52e22c55b5.png

    My results for the year. My % profit is +1.8%. This is a rule set and no intuition or discretion is used. I run a full time business while operating this rule set, so yes it can be done. I take roughly 450-500 trades a year. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3c702e9b8476cc85aa546051da331c9378c15554683cf8985f228d36d71c706c.png

    Mole,
    I spent the first 3 decades of life having issues such as you described plus others. At age 33, as I was reaching into the refrigerator to take a few swigs of milk, I thought that there might be some connection to my allergies and this food product I had consumed in some form almost everyday of my life. At that moment, I QUIT DAIRY TOTALLY! Within a few days, I knew I had guessed correctly. I’m now 75 and NO allergy problems. You might give it a try; it is worth your life!
