    Nice way to start the week...

    It's justifiably immoral to deal morally with an immoral entity.

    If you trade based on what other people say, you will lose money. Especially what I say. I won't be held responsible.

              Bit early to say yet, but this is shaping up to be a rather nasty night.

                Out, -1.75. Guess I was wrong. At least for now.

                        Heh. Went to check the nikkei and... No response from nikkei.co.jp.

                        Oh! Wow! "Internal server error" kicked out after about 3-4 minutes waiting.

                                Hate to, but I need at least some sleep... Stop to 1872.75.

                                Probably get stopped and miss 20 handles.

                                        The yen and gbp are more trading against each other more this morning than any time I've ever seen. [Edit: Except when they're not. Oddly, they're trading WITH each other a large part of the time as well.]

                                                                                                              Just to let others here know, that my posts are sporadic, cause my parents are getting elderly and I need to go to their home many afternoons per week. This prevents me from posting and trading my usual es. Hope to get back to normal someday soon.

                                                                                                              This is a monthly chart of the SPX with volume profile. Note, how low the volume is above the old high of 2007 at SPX 1576. If we get a 23.6% fib retrace, then this would bring us down to the 1576 area, if that does happen, then a bounce should come from that point. When support is hit the first time, then a bounce is expected. If we fail one the second and third time, then it becomes resistance.

                                                                                                              Patience should be rewarded for the Bears. We are exactly 5 years into this rally.
