Did Something Just Come Out?


The Dollar happened....

Look in that white circle and see how it had been under siege and under attack all day today right along that 38.2% Fibonacci Retrace area. The night's still young....

I think they will bottom it over night.... Euro has stopped plummeting for now, and Nikkei although down has stopped its decent...... Let's see what happens when Europe opens..... It looks like futures are at least holding temporarily at support... Barry

Wishful thinking when you're holding long positions... No one knows at this point. We'll see....

BTW, forgot to mention all kinds of rumors flying all over the place. One of them being Germany considering leaving the EU.

Sorry, I just couldn't help it....

I strongly suspect that after this relief rally runs it's course over coming hours that there could very well be "hell to pay" - and that the rest of the week "could" get bloody. We'll see.

From my perspective it's just the IT trend accelerating.....

Zzzzzz.

Maybe support on the indices broke is what happened?

New low in ES and we drop like a rock. I'm long though with a 1310ES basis. How can I pass up a long trade with profit results such as this ?

1 losing trade of -0.07%. Sure, the trend is down, but one of my systems says to go long.

You forgot the listing of max draw down.. plus 16 data points isn't a lot. I suppose you can make any argument about any trade system.

I think you said this trade assumes a gap fill before 1300 is broke?

Max draw down is 1.4k.

Most of my pattern trades are based on 15-25 matches. As long as they are over a long period and not in one year its never been a problem. Except when we rallied just after japan, I put out a post reversing a short call.
