Off To The Trauma Clinic

by The MoleAugust 31, 2018

As you may recall I badly injured by lower back last weekend and fortunately I was able to snag an appointment with a trauma specialist in an hour from now. This by the way was no small feat as here in Spain everyone is just coming back from their traditional month long August vacations (no joke). There doctor’s appointments are extremely hard to get by, especially with anyone worth their salt.

Fortunately I’m feeling much better and was even able to make it through a light gym routine yesterday.  But that back of mine is still feeling a bit ‘out of whack’ and after things practically escalated to the point of me ending up at the emergency room, I’m determined to get to the bottom of this. Pun intended 😉

Anyway, so no post today plus there isn’t that much to be said at this point. Yesterday I proposed the possibility of a shake out and we got served even quicker than anticipated. Nothing out of the ordinary and if you once again feel perma-bearish than take a good look at a weekly or monthly chart and then remind yourself of where we are and how we got here.

One quick note to my Zero subs. It seems that the session problem persists this morning. Which means you may have to log out of aMember and then log in again. That should fix it at least for the day. I have already notified aMember support advising them that they need to keep investigating. I apologize for any inconvenience.

See you all next week.

    Equities breather still playing-out in slo motion well within the usual margins. I’m always suspicious of that crap…never can know how resolves but HD handles can’t be ignored.

    JULIE

  • https://evilspeculator.com Sir Mole III

    BAC Strong support 30.36 (initial target) BUT lower parallel channel drawn matching 50% retracement also a target approx 29.77 JULIE https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/af1ac9e195b5d288e10fb851431c7a6c27951f01170580cd72b4847558acefda.png

    Guys I am bullish oil and USO USO SCTR at 95 — OBV is rising and the advance off the August low appears impulsive. 5 ; 21 and 55 ema’s in bullish alignment and rising https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4448138b904cbb6f6535d6208b61c273882e243fbb9132ae16c1ba54287049c0.png Overbought and IMO a pullback about to occur. Support at 14.56 As you can see on chart 14.56 is the approx 5 ema ; support and upper trend line of parallel channel drawn. A break below I may short with a target the approx 55 ema which would be an approx 50% retracement Keeping an eye USO JULIE

  • Julie 35 – 25 – 36

    SPX Cmon Bears Time to take advantage ! NOW ! Bust and close below the 5 ema I am sure they are listening to me LOL !

  • Mark Shinnick

    Seems like all the best reasons for it be moving downside have been today. I’ve been modest short, but don’t have much reason to position over the holiday.

    I’m getting an MRI next week. My xrays look good – no degradation between the vertebrae. Doc thinks it may be a compressed nerve but wants to see an MRI to understand what’s going on there.

    Big Copper,
    what a mess. The last dozen weeks have been capitulation.
    $2.55 could be a stopping point.

    This chart shows a 128 week cycle.
    what? you didn’t catch the weekly stovepipe top? Muwahaha.

    I’m a bit perplexed by the inflation doomers if metal commodities themselves, haven’t increased in price. This stuff doesn’t grow on trees, you have to mine/refine/ship this barbarian stuff to maintain civilization.

    I watched this one last night. VERY interesting!

  • Ronebadger

    I just received my first GrandBadger on Saturday…it’s a girl!!!

  • BKXtoZERO

    Congrats! I say, open an account for her and buy her 1000 shares of TVIX. By the time she is old enough for college it should be worth about 0.04 cents.

  • https://evilspeculator.com Sir Mole III

    CONGRATS!! (and my condolences in advance for when she hits puberty around 2032).

  • Ronebadger

    …but I was told that TVIX is only good for day trading?
