New Coat Of Paint

by The MoleFebruary 8, 2018

I don’t have terribly much to offer today as I was busy on the crypto end, and more precisely experimenting with several pertinent charting packages. You may recall my pertinent post from a few weeks ago and since then I’ve also looked into two commercial online charting providers, the first being Tradingview and the second Coinigy. Both have their merits but both are also missing quite a few things that I take for granted having gotten used to desktop based platforms like NinjaTrader.

As silly as this may sound what I liked about Tradingview in particular was the look and feel of their charts and I ended up getting bogged down replicating it over in NinjaTrader. It’s more of a cool look and although most of you guys probably don’t care one way or the other I think a new coat of paint just looks cooler and more professional. So let me know what you think and if you approve.

All I really got time for unfortunately is a quick update on our open positions. Here’s the E-Mini which is still clinging to the entry zone I nabbed it yesterday. As I mentioned on the chart: a sideways session after a sell off and fast bounce is pretty normal and we may get another today. But by tomorrow the E-Mini better get its move on or it may get dragged downward again.

Not much to write home about on the Dollar campaign either, at last not yet. But frankly I’m elated to see a bit of mojo in the Dollar for a change again. I’m pretty certain there will be a take down shortly but with a bit of luck these are the first attempts of forming a medium term low.

Now on the EUR/USD we unfortunately stroke out as that long position I put on the roster yesterday quickly found its maker. On the other hand I’m ecstatic and will of course make another trip to the ATM today πŸ™‚

And on the USD/JPY I decided to hold my trail at a respectable distance. Reason being that I also expect a shake out attempt and that shortly. Look at recent volatility on the daily panel and you’ll realize that we’ve gotten pretty lucky so far. So let’s not push it – our luck and our stop that is.

    The colors are muted, which is okay I suppose.
    The black background however, isn’t true black.

    Your aren’t one of those color blind guys, are you?

    GG in your view does HYG tend to lead equities or vice versa?

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

    Lead.
    rumor is bond traders are way smarter than equities.

    so much can change in 6 months!

  • BobbyLow

    Mornin Folks,

    Stating the obvious, it looks like another weak day for equities at this moment. In the mean time, Crude and OIH are down again and that’s cool with me. πŸ™‚ I’ve been sniffing at Gold but there’s not enough movement either way for me to take a bite yet. Besides, I’m having a decent week and don’t want to force a trade.

    XHB dropping nicely I re shorted yesterday Watching USO here at 12.20 very closely. This could be it then a bounce. Daily RSI approx. 40 on this correction
    JULIE

  • Tomcat

    what do the wave counters predict today?

  • Tomcat

    We may be close to a bottom Julie, but do not forget seasonality. In Natty its a b*tch.

  • BobbyLow

    High of 54 degrees today, 64 degrees tomorrow and low 70’s over the weekend but cloudy with intermittent rain showers.

  • BobbyLow

    Sat on my hands too long and missed the up move in Gold. It’s too late in the day for me to enter now. Can’t win em all.

  • Ronebadger

    waviness…

  • Tomcat

    Interesting…I see this as an oppt to short it here

  • Tomcat

    HAHAHAHA

  • Tomcat

    Very quiet in here today. Figured this wave of selling would spur more comments.

  • Darkthirty

    Better ask ridingwaves

  • Mark Shinnick

    Well, I sat on my hands yesterday waiting for this…so tracking the 3x shorts thing entered earlier.

    time for lunch! yom yom yom.

  • Mark Shinnick

    Yeah…still short since ..early last month?

  • BobbyLow

    If I was still trading UGLD/DGLD (ETNs), I would have been short since Monday morning and still be short. But I’m pretty much scalping gold futures looking for 5 to 8 points or so at a time while setting OCO orders or trailing stops depending on the ATR and what the overall tape looks like. One way or another, I’m out soon after or before the Asian sesson begins. There are also more “counter” moves scalping.

    What I don’t like about holding gold futures overnight is the fuckery that goes on and the stop runs that take place. However I do like that my futures day trades this week have been on net more profitable than holding onto DGLD (3X Short) since Monday morning and so far so good.

  • https://evilspeculator.com Sir Mole III

    Looking forward to watching videos of you diving into the crowd off the Ritz awning.

  • Yoda

    Not sure how to read the tape right now along with zero participation.
    Is it being walked down? Or is the down move lacking mojo and ready to reverse?

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/12e5f3d50820255373f57dbad14b7b3276e1dfc69744f1752739b8d1021c8ab1.png

  • https://evilspeculator.com Sir Mole III

    Looks divergent (bullish) to me. Waiting for a little push higher on the signal so that it crosses into the plus. VWAP test possible.

  • BobbyLow

    Have a great time and stay off the street poles. πŸ™‚

  • Mark Shinnick

    …maybe a test of the re-test…short again.

  • Darkthirty

    PPT pumping ……..

  • Mark Shinnick

    Closed, first loss today so usually means something…like the noise in here is very important.

  • Mark Shinnick

    Bot xiv, tight.

  • Yoda

    Just closed 1/2 of the L VXX trade I took yesterday, leaving the other half in play

  • BobbyLow

    Not liking tape. Closed Crude and OIH short for +1.63 R combined.

    Might reenter later if need be. . .

  • https://evilspeculator.com Sir Mole III

    Good reason to pull out – if you don’t understand what’s going on come back later to fight another day.

  • BKXtoZERO

  • https://evilspeculator.com Sir Mole III

    There should be laws against that… sheeesh

  • BobbyLow

    Can’t go by my eyes but they both look the same to me.

  • https://evilspeculator.com Sir Mole III

    Seriously?? Right is a bit darker.

  • Edd

    B, seems sharper

  • BobbyLow

    Ya a little bit but I have a hard time reading the detail on both. But like I said my eyes are not the greatest.

  • Julie

    BL USO could bounce here 12.20 is a support matching the daily 55 ema and upper cloud boundary. Oversold daily chart but weekly sure can drop more before oversold 11.72 and 11.61 are also a supports. Friday’s close tomorrow important i.e. a weekly close below 12.34 will be bearish. 12.34 is the weekly Ichi Cloud conversion line (8) JULIE

  • CandleStickEmUpper

    B. The darker is easier to look at. “A” looks like my screen contrast is on too high.

  • BKXtoZERO

    There is a law against EVERYTHING I do here πŸ˜‰

  • Darkthirty

    !?

  • Mary

    B …

  • BobbyLow

    What I didn’t like was that today’s /CL’s downside (-$1.20) was almost cut in half in a few minutes and I made a decision based on my PPT (Profit Protection Team). We’ll see how it closes.

  • Darkthirty

    Better contrast on B……

  • Julie

    BL I have a 60 min bullish MACD signal line crossover and CCI trend line break to the upside and now a 60 min candle going above the 60 min 8 ema. As you say let’s see the close. 30 min chart positive divergences. I may nibble long at the close very very small position and see if it does advance and see how it reacts at the daily 5 ema which it must close above

  • BobbyLow

    No problem Julie. Coincidently, Crude might be working it’s way up to a buy depending on how it closes and what the tape looks like tomorrow.

    Important SPX has come down approx. to the Monthly 8 ema approx. 2605 (low 2593) Now also SPX has come down to the weekly 34 ema exactly 2593.This could be the low guys. Taking 3/4 off XHB short and moving BAC short (small position) stop to break even. SPX a definite impulse down as is XHB . IMO SPX a bounce to a lower high SPX then throw the kitchen sink at it in a short

  • Ronebadger

    Look at UVXY instead of TVIX

  • Yoda

    My take on the price action is that the tape is being walked down purposely until stops are triggered and volatility kicks in. Algos in reverse indeed.

  • BobbyLow

    In Ten Trading Days Crude has had a 10% drop from its Jan 25th High.

  • BobbyLow

    Might be OK with Commodities but it’s definitely looking more and more like a Bear Market now and positive closes in regular equites might not mean much.

    Or maybe its just your bias kicking in.

    I once checked how the price acts when NYMO is below -100, and I believe a retest of lows was roughly 90% likely, preceded by a median of about 6% rally.

    So far the price is acting exactly like it _should_ or should I say exactly like it has acted in previous similar cases.

    I don’t like to be long VIX during OPEX week. Will close the rest of the L VXX trade tomorrow.

  • Yoda

    hehehe πŸ˜‰

    Oh man. I am
    Missing something. I had you on a long campaign. Nice trade then! And dude. I hope you can see some humor in my chart colors comment!?!

    The market is crashing

    -there were like 3 people talking shorts yesterday.

  • Yoda

    Usually, during OPEX week is when VIX gets stomped on by a half-ton gorilla. For this reason I will close VXX tomorrow.

    whoops Addams family

    Yes, I was long but got stopped out on that one. I mentioned when posting that setup that it was a low probability campaign and that things could possibly further South. Had to pick a campaign at that moment, I picked long. it happens – it’s not that big of a deal to me as I have other runners in the race.

    BTW, the market isn’t crashing – you haven’t seen a crash unless you’ve seen 2007/2008. That was a crash. This may become one if buyers don’t show up pronto overnight.

    The failure at VWAP changed everything today. Until then the Zero was a bit divergent but I was waiting for a positive signal. Didn’t happen plus VWAP wasn’t breached.

    Just posting some childhood pictures. Back in 2008 my younger and less experienced self was up to his ears in puts. The Cox from the SEC stepped in on Sep 19th…

    some people hate my fib fans, but a guy named Fearless, taught me to speak my mind.

    it’s a month old, but you get the picture.

    the big part now is, have a plan, and trade. the. plan.

    PS. I want to say this place is remarkable, let’s keep it going.

    -5.00 on the hourly Zero usually implies a nice pop a few days later…running out of time. (This might be the BIG ONE, Elizabeth!)

  • Mark Shinnick

    What an amazing guy for his time….and when the time was over that everyone turned to other things…not even he was much listened to again.

    I should have said the market likes to sell off when I fly Virgin Airlines…..its not a believe in my purity….

  • ridingwaves

    I failed to tell you folks that when I fly Virgin Airlines the Market usually sells off on the account of my fake purity……

  • Mark Shinnick

    Its the sort of Fibbing I like. In the scheme of this, and although its been 10%, it sure doesn’t look like a very big deal. I wonder how much of retail hasn’t yet been very impressed.

    B. Now can you do B vs C, which is darker yet?

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

    A – left

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

    meh. For a dark chart, I like a darker background, for better contrast. This background seems ‘hazy’.

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

    Speaking of Fearless, remember his ‘Fear Index’? When VXO is >50, it’s time to go long.

  • ridingwaves

    closed gap at 2580, next one at 2465

    Keep yourself in that flying virgin tube, I guess?

    I’m a fan of tradingview. It’s cheap, and very good. Coinigy doesn’t do USD artificially calculated pairs.

    SPX Target 2450 for two equal legs down from 2727. An ABC down from 2872. I am not a waver as explained before but I do look for symmetry such as an ABC two equal legs
