pc speak =

“After previous two weeks’ rather high inventory numbers (7.8M) we should see the inventories at 3.1M level. However, the actual numbers have lately deviated quite strongly from the analyst expectations.”

interpretation of the pc speak = “we’re trying to help talk these inventory numbers down… but the freakn tanks are filling up and running over…”

...close to B.E. on long scale trade (previously discussed in the Gold Bullish or Bearish thread)

 

REGARDLESS - will be 'hedging' up aggressively on short side over the next couple of weeks...

 

I’m not always right... but when I’m wrong, I’m still right ;)

 

(ps it's not apparent, but you can accurately project humility here... not hubris)

:cool:

As noted earlier, have been building a long scale trade in far far out CL futures... in the green now...

Planning to start more heavily locking it in with shorts on closer month contracts on approaches to ~46...

 

...will still build this scale trade for a couple more years ...

planning to add to it all the way down into the low teens...

 

:roll eyes:

btw - scale trades hog up capital

and

Crude oil is the new widow maker. It trades heavier than a wet dawg in a New York thunderstorm. Rallies have no legs and its seems the only bid these days are the shorts with their family jewels caught in a vice grip.

 

Fwiw I’m still in this same long scale trade.

Same plan. Have capital allocated for a ‘crash’ in energy prices... which may never happen...:missy:

 

fwiw - On many levels this is a peak technology / peak infrastructure play more than it is a peak supply or peak production play . Most would equate technology / infrastructure with production. In this case, I think it's better to seg them out...

 

Getting exasperated with rolling it every quarter - but hey, that’s scale trading...

 

'Hedging' tactics have changed since last post from selected / fixed level using stops underneath to overboughts using 'limit's above... but already looking at cycles for when to shift tactics back to fixed level / stops underneath ...

 

Average net long price is down to ~ 34 - after 'successfully' trading/ (hedging and lifting) 7 of the last 4 :confused: :rofl: good downdrafts using close month contracts.

Back to work...

 

to ‘hedge’ CLV18 longs, incrementing trailing stop .10 -.30 per day with CLG18 contracts. Currently they trail about 2.50 under yesterday’s CLG18 lows ...

 

the current 'joke' around here is what how much smaller, unleveraged positions in btc have absolutely kicked this position's ass the whole way through...

:roll eyes:

 

:missy:

crammed most trailing stops to just under this weeks CLG18 low ... to ‘hedge’ CLV18 longs

 

(starting to 'imagine' an exit to this trade and starting to build a short scale trade in CL - but don't know yet when or where I would begin... summerish? mid 70's ish???.

just my imagination :doh: :)

... CL "doesn't even know me"... time to do some cycle and resonance work...)

How many currencies are, in effect, mere derivatives of the USD?

For example, the new petroyuan - (beyond being some corrupt chinese exchange startup entrepreneurs’ wet dreams,) meaningless until they take off the peg to the dollar.

Wars and rumors of wars... and... fiats and rumors of fiats...


‘Somebody’ wants 90 to 100 barrel... but


 I’m moving my hedge stops up under this run in CL ... these recent up waves appear corrective, ie not impulsive, to me...

    • China’s New Cryptocurrency   China plans to release a new digital currency which would bear some similarities to Facebook’s Libra coin. It would be usable across several platforms like WeChat and Alipay.   In a recent interview with the Shanghai Security News on the 6th of September, the deputy director of the People’s Bank of China, Mu Changchun, stated the purposes and the need for the new digital currency. He stated that the central bank needed to evolve from the use of traditional paper currency and delve into electronic payment methods which are making strong advances around the world. He said that the digital currency would be a realistic way to protect monetary sovereignty and legal currency status, stating that this digital currency initiative was a way of planning for a rainy day.   He also mentioned that digital currency would be as safe as the traditional central bank-issued paper notes and that it could even be used without requiring an internet connection. This offline feature is one of its major selling points as monetary transactions can still be carried out even in the face of communication breakdowns resulting from natural disasters like earthquakes, tsunamis and so on.   In 2014, the Chinese central bank set up a research party to explore the possibilities of a China-based digital currency to reduce the costs of producing and circulating paper money, which in turn would boost policymakers’ control over the supply of money.   Information about the development of this new digital currency was unknown to the public until last month when Mu announced that the innovation was almost ready.   US-based financial magazine Forbes has made claims that the currency would be ready by November 11.   Analysts are saying that the announcement made by social media giants, Facebook on the release of its digital coin, Libra, is the reason for the acceleration of the push towards digital currency by the PBoC.   Mu made mention of how the new digital currency would strike a balance between allowing anonymous payments and preventing money-laundering as compared to Libra. Although the Chinese digital currency may bear some resemblances with Libra, it would possess characteristics that even Libra didn’t have.   Facebook’s Libra Facebook’s Libra has sparked a lot of worries among global regulators that it could become the predominant digital payment format and could become a medium for money laundering considering the social media’s wide reach.   Libra is said to be a digital currency that would be backed by several real-world assets, including bank deposits and government securities, and it will be held by a network of stewards. The structure of Libra is predicated on promoting trust and to stabilize its price.   Finally, Mu further discussed the superiority of the digital currency over altcoins was that others could go bankrupt and cause its users huge losses. Thus he said, can never be the case of PBoC’s new currency.   Source: https://learn2.trade         
    • Facebook’s Libra To Apply For Licence In Switzerland   Swiss financial regulators have signaled that Facebook’s cryptocurrency, Libra is mandated to meet up to extra requirements besides acquiring a payment system license before they can begin operations in the region.   In a recent press release, the Swiss Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) explained that the diverse services projected by Libra have created the need for adding the requirements being imposed. They stated that due to the issuance of payment tokens by Libra, the operations planned by Libra would clearly exceed those of a pure payment system and therefore should be subjected to such extra requirements.   The Extra Regulatory Requirements According to FINMA, the extra requirements would be targeted specifically at liquidity, risk concentration and capital allocation.   The financial regulators of Switzerland have also noted that the management of Libra is another element necessitating the demand for Facebook to meet extra requirements concerning its cryptocurrency initiative.   In the launch of the Libra white paper in June, Facebook noted that the reserve would be controlled by a web of custodians who would be spread across different geographies. The so-called custodians will be mandated to possess an investment-grade credit rating.   Also, Facebook noted that the real assets used to back the Libra cryptocurrency would be a selection of low-risk assets such as bank deposits and government securities.   What Form Will these Extra Libra requirements take?   According to FINMA, the extra regulatory requirements that Libra would have to meet would be nothing different from what other participants in the financial markets have to adhere to.   For example, Libra would be expected to be exposed to certain bank-like rules such as a large simultaneous number of withdrawals of Libra coin by users would have to be palliated by the application of certain bank-like regulatory requirements. This means that Facebook would be required to obtain a banking license. This idea has been pushed for in the past by U.S. President, Donald Trump.   FINMA also mentioned that Libra’s international range will mandate a globally coordinated approach. This new development would drastically delay the launch of the cryptocurrency.   U.S. Pressures Switzerland over Libra Cryptocurrency Switzerland is under intense pressure from the United States to ensure that its cryptocurrency regulations are not prone to misuse. Facebook chose the Central European nation as its hub because of the country’s progressiveness towards FinTech.   According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, officials from Switzerland and U.S. Held a meeting in Switzerland earlier this week, where they discussed matters surrounding the new cryptocurrencies regulations.   The U.S Undersecretary of the Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, Sigal Mandelker, emphasized his concerns over the need to have regulations strong enough to fend off bad actors. He mandated that the Swiss handle these concerns with all importance.   Source: https://learn2.trade   
    • I don't agree with you. There are dozens and dozens of brokers that are regulated by the CySEC or FCA.
    • Just one more question. How many real REGULATED crypto BROKERS can we find? Correct, the answer is ZERO!! Please stay away from trading cryptos.
