Taking A Mulligan

by The MoleJune 29, 2018

I hope you don’t expect me to make sense out of that glorious mess equities have turned into over the past week or so, do you? Well, let me give it a best shot. Clearly the days of ‘stick to the script and BTFD’ ended sometime in late January. What has followed since is a rip-your-face-off whipsaw from hell we haven’t seen since mid to late 2016. Tough tape and everyone’s feeling the pinch, plus summer participation ain’t helping.

What’s most frustrating for trend traders in particular is that equities seem to turn right at the threshold of important inflection points, bullish and bearish alike. That said just looking at the daily panel from 5000 feet up it still looks like as if the bulls retain the advantage.

We are seeing long wicks on the lower side of candles and now a series of higher highs and higher lows. Meaning the tape still feels bearish but it’s gradually churning its way higher. What would put the medium to long term bullish case in question is a breach through ES 2650 followed by a drop through ES 2600. Until that happens I continue to look up.

Given the current formation on the short term panel I’m taking a Mulligan on that lottery ticket I got swiftly kicked out of (at break/even fortunately) on Wednesday. I’m long here with a stop below ES 2705, once again only with 0.3% of my assets as the odds of a big push higher today are limited. Which also means that I may make an exception and close out this position unless I see a convincing drive higher throughout today’s session.

Progress!

That’s pretty much it for today on the trading front. I’ve been laboring hard behind the scenes setting up my own hypervisor on a physical hosted system which now runs my own custom configured VPS. I just tested the screen grabber I am using for the Zero and it works perfectly. Today I’m still going to run the Zero off the old VPS but starting next week we’ll be running it from my own brand spanking new colo system I have full control over (once I learn how to run it that is).

Plus as you know I’ve got my trusted PC on a stick that I can launch at a moment’s notice should there be an outage at the datacenter. After eight years of dealing with shoddy support from various hosting firms I’m pretty elated about finally being able to run my own setup.

But that’s not all, I am also shifting this website to a new hosting firm starting tonight. This has been in the making for a while now due to growing frustrations with the firm’s support. Over the past week I have been testing a copy of Evil Speculator which is currently running at the new hosting firm. Thus far everything appears to work fine and the plan is to swap over to the new hosting firm starting tonight. I will do the DNS change-over once everything is in sync with the existing site.

I don’t foresee any major problems but honestly these types of migrations rarely happen smoothly and someone always runs into proxy or cache issues. I will send out an email with instructions to everyone should you have any difficulties on Monday. Fortunately it’s going to be short week with most of you guys taking time off, thus it’s the perfect time for a swap over. If you guys run into any issues please feel free to email me at admin@. Otherwise, wish me luck!

    Actually it’s enjoyed about 99.5% uptime over the past nine years guys. I know it hurts when it’s down but it’s up 7.5 hours per day and rarely misses a beat. It’s easy to focus only on the outages when they happen, and of course it’s part of human nature. But in general it’s run rock solid over the years. Just saying….

    The reason why I’m moving to my own setup is because my hosting guy fucked me over big time, and not just me but two clients I had sent him. So this had to be done and I had to do it although I have been super busy with other deliverables, additionally adding to my stress and lack of personal time.

    The trade I need help with today is that I usually fill my heating oil tank at the
    house once per year, usually in the summer when prices are low. I run to the phone looking at CL RSI while placing my order LOL. But thanks to this CL rally I am screwed this year. Call the oil company now? or be filling my tank at 90$ CL??? Not surprised by stocks, Lucy
    is alive and well. Some day I will kick her in the head not the ball.Trend does appear to be weakening when they test almost an entire up leg. We may wind up with a lower high here (2820-50 soon that may be a real wobbly looking short next time….. see how things look then, what the story line is…..Thanks for heating oil advice!

  • ridingwaves

    I get the feeling the Fed is behind the 8 ball on this….I expect rate shocks to be the next humdinger for the indexes….complacency on the inflation side bottomed this year.. The debtors love them some inflation, those bulk RE buys criminalized by the Fed really have generated a boatload for those investors..I think the fed mandate on selling the bulk foreclosures is now done…..a reset is needed

    I’m no expert. But I do pride myself in problem resolutions.
    Whenever faced with a binary decision, stop.
    Many a time there is not a binary choice, but more than.

    So I’ll ask the obvious question, do you have to fill your tank completely?
    Can you do a fraction? or does the arrival/shipment cost negate that?

    I wish there was a way to quantify when economic news comes out.

    the top fan is definitely still in play, the 5% GDP print expected for this qtr could act as gas on fire situation for crude..a breakout, used the weekly to better show the pps volume up here, daily hasn’t been up here in 3 years…

    Were kind of in a volume hole area right now…need a catalyst to jump it, looks like it could run fast above 83 to 97, it would seem big boys would sell into this volume area…or a bit higher at your fan lin

    Nice read Chief ! This chart corroborates your thoughts’ SPX pulled back from 21 ema and baseline (21). Also a close below 2733 the conversion line (8) emphasizes a bearish bias.

    I see lots of talk this weekend that the POTUS is going to release 100mil barrels from the reserve to try to drop oil prices….. That “speculators” (maybe even EVIL Speculators) have been driving oil up beyond fundamentals. He was begging Saudis for production ramp which I think they agreed to? lots of talk of high oil costing votes…. I am short from Friday. Bring it on dude! I need to full my heating oil tank too.

    Site feels a bit snappier to me – what you guys think?

    I never cared for tattoos unless they are worn by sailors, marines, or gang bangers. And I absolutely loath them on women.

  • BKXtoZERO

    well… today Saudis said no. See what happens next week. I lost a lot of money in the past trading macro economy ideas…. I think high oil and high rates will kill the economy, maybe that is the plan….. but I will be trading the charts in front of me.

    edit: For a solid knife catching, RSI < 30 is best. Not 33.

    GG The Oasis Restaurant in Manhattan MT just west of Bozeman Ted Turner and his wife Jane Fonda were kicked out. They wanted to be served ahead of others. We were fishing on the Yellowstone River just south of Livingston in the Paradise Valley when a motorcycle zoomed by us and crashed. It was peter Fonda he was so drunk he could not even stand up. He has a ranch in the Paradise Valley. Farah Fawcett lived in the Paradise Valley too .Movie stars ; celebrities ; athletes can be seen in the vicinity of Bozeman. Danny White the former quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys lives on the same road as us. Very nice family

    so you like Perkins for the ‘common’ folk scene.

    Fonda can’t handle his booze, women, or tweets!!
    approaching 80, he’s probably senile.

    Peter Fonda is unstable. He ran around with Sam Peckinpah (Hollywood producer and director) Peckinpah lived at the Hotel Murray in Livingston. Emily Lou Harris lives in Livingston as does Margot Kidder Margot just recently passed away

    GG and everyone If you want to live in the Rockies Wyoming is relatively affordable. Pinedale WY the Western Front of the beautiful Wind River Range. Lander WY the Eastern Front of the Wind River Range. Cody WY and surrounding area is beautiful and cheap. Saratoga — Ryan Park WY in the Medicine Bow country is awesome. The beauty of MT and WY is too far to go on a weekend from a major metro area. Denver and Salt Lake are too far away from these places in WY to go for a weekend. People from Seattle ; Portland and Spokane can’t travel to MT for a weekend. Love The Rockies

    Agreed. A tattoo on a woman is like spray painting the Venus de Milo. Ugh.
