Hold signals.

Nothing new on this boring day... All systems remain short. I will continue to hold my 75% tza position. Thanks!

  1. TNA short made about 1/2 of 1% profit today. Not so boring (at least to me). Take care, J.

  2. Zippo day today, but good day to put on an ES set for this short trade with ya, J. We have good odds of fading Friday's move in the next day or so... I'll take off half there, and then put in B/E+1 stops on the remainder.

    Bears need to take out the lows from 2/7 (by at least a pt) on SPX if they want to get serious here.

    1. Is it even possible to short a market with nearly unlimited Fed intervention, liquidity, and both Japan and Venezuela debasing their currency.

      I am going to hate to 'realize' this loss... sigh

    1. If your SPXU cost basis is 31.49, you relatively few shares @ early January prices.;-)

    2. That is, If your SPXU cost basis is 31.49, you bought very few shares at early January prices.

  5. As I was saying... we ignore the trend at our own risk.

  6. J, as you know, whether a market is manipulated or not is immaterial. A strong trend will override indicators whether the trend is due to fed liquidity or mass psychology. The question is whether a system can "recognize" such irrational moves and make appropriate adjustments. So, have you given any thought to teaching your system to respect tidal waves?
