    I agree. I remember when we had so much analysis it turned into flame wars several times a week.

    Good times. Good times.

    Looks like I ended up making about $30.00. Woohoo!

    I was down several hundred, so that's nice.

    Long and Short.jpg
    This is why I went long and short today. I was short and bought back my short after that first really long candle wick, that was right after Trump's press conference. Then, when it went down again, I went short again and it went back up again. Quickly bought back and sat for a few. Then after that 3rd long candle which, where the blue arrow is, I went long again, sold near the top, and went short at the yellow arrow.

    All in all, worked out to a measly $30.00 gain. Had I sold when I saw the market was down 8.00 points, I'd have had a much better day.

    Asia down, Europe down, and futures down. Looks like the odds of a RED day are pretty high. I'll post the graphics when it gets a little closer.

    I'm benefiting from this down move but not nearly as much as I could be had I sold some future call options.

    Ah well. If we get a 3% plus down move, I'll sell some puts.

    Wazzup fools? Been a long time since I last looked at the markets.

    Is anyone seriously investing in this market anymore? Earnings don't seem half bad lately, but P/E just keeps creeping up and up and up.. I'm always thinking "they can't keep getting away with this", but it has been this way for about three years now. And all this on the back of the dollar being over 100.

    Beyond that, volatility looks absolutely nonexistent the past few months. Looks like brokers are raping day traders with commission so people can struggle to scalp a few handles.

    Some S&P analysis I guess..... daily chart looks like a very poor high around the ATH's.. my guess is we back off from that level to around 2200 before making another run higher.

    ETRM not getting the volume any more. Couple of gaps below it.

    Looks like AVXL is setting up for something.
