Thank god for automation.

I was not up at 1:34 AM... and even if I was I would not be ‘frisky’ enough to do it right... or care about some stupid narrative coming out of china...

I’m just sayin’ :)

To damage the sovereignty of the individual is to replace a community inspired by love, benevolence, and beauty by another based solely on power.

exiting that long YM/short NQ position this morning.

It may have more to go, but I’m just plain done with switching to that account to leg in and out propitiously.

 

comment:

Folks, after a net of 30 years at this 'full time' I'm slowly backing out of this game. Even a year ago I would never allow myself to drop out of a position like that.

Oh well - To every thing there is a season... Plus wife wants us to bucket list more 'while we're still young' :roll eyes: etc etc

 

Also - Taking some profits off the top on the short dollar positions discussed a week or so ago....

 

 

have a great weekend all

is fighting 'fake news' actually a path to censoring?

 

YES!

 

Glenn Greenwald writes:

Yet, as many have long been warning, few people, if any, ever bothered to define what the term [fake news] actually means. As a result, it’s incredibly vague, shifting, and devoid of consistent meaning. Do any news articles that contain false, significant assertions qualify? Is there some intent requirement, and if so, what is it and how is determined (does recklessness qualify)? Can large mainstream outlets such as the Washington Post, Le Monde, and Globo be guilty of publishing “fake news” and thus subject to this censorship, or is it — as one expects — reserved only for small, independent blogs and outlets that lack a powerful corporate presence?

 

 

 

....

meanwhile FakeBook shareholders clearly prefer more fake news to less. :rofl:

Trade reviews:

 

BO trades in 8 x’s on USD ( and a few correlates) working well. As noted, lifted some already. Taking some more profits over next 24 hours. Letting ~60% of position ride... with trailing stops

 

Still adding shorts to treasuries near/on the handles ... btw either handle will do I add more if they go up and I add more if they go down :)

 

still trailing ‘hedge’ stop on CL longs ~ 2.5 handles below CLG18...

(... btw Malaysian Tapis > 70 usd https://oilprice.com/oil-price-charts#prices )

 

And... If you want to see an example of the results of indolence in this game...

that long YM/short NQ did have more to go... and I got out... from laziness

... but did take ~650 per car on the base position and a bit more by legging in and out... now considering a long NQ / short YM spread for a few days...

How do you look at a world with fake money being dumped into it daily?

 

If it was good two days ago, I guess it's still good.

....

 

and... very high net longs in EUR... Flows? I'm looking to fade it.

 

...

 

plus unprecedented record high spec net longs in oil ... concerned yet?

 

 

...

TL used to be a 'laboratory' for traders... now traders are the lab rats subject to diabolical 'experiments'... just sayin'

I chose to stick my head up...once again. In my world (on the river) we (I) recognize the insanity of perfection... that's my sole comment on the state of things...some will get it...some won't...and that's fine.

 

If I were to offer up any advice to anyone, it would be to become "Spartan" in your thinking...

 

30 years is a long time to be doing anything (salute). I've been at it 8 years and I question the path. But... I'm still here...and still good.

 

It's a whacky assed world we live in, and I don't expect it to change (honestly...I'm fine with it), Dumb fucking humans, doing the same dumb fucking things: over and over again. Such is life...

 

To have seen 30 years... Salute!

jpmoneybags,

 

Thanks. 30 + years of watching 'markets' and trading has been enlightening and has offered many challenges.

(Actually I took a 2 year sabbatical for my young family in the early 90's, always took June off for the kids until they were grown and gone, for the last few years have bumped my away time to 6 weeks instead of 4 - and my current plans are to push that to a net of 3 to 4 months away from it per year ... ie it has never been an unending nose grindstone )

 

:) I just remembered how you projected sex toy on a vibration device I use for prehab. Just got one of these.

https://www.ivibration-pro.com/product-page/ivibration-pro

it too is NOT a sex toy ... but

odds are still good you'll be posting something about how perv can use it setually :rofl:

Don’t be alarmed - it’s only me recycling my negative outlook for the EU

Over the Next Year, Germany Will Hit a Scary Demographic Milestone

 

the ‘solution’ implemented by the centralized state will not work - period

https://gefira.org/en/2018/01/17/euro-a-disaster-failed-monetary-unions-past-and-present/

 

and...the ‘centralized solution’ of importing ‘refugees’ from countries the ‘US’ has ravaged and plundered will not work.... economically or socially. The Muslims will not assimilate. That is too much against their religion. Assimilating leads to honor killing by relatives.

 

now before you go thinking I hate muslims check this -

 

Winston Churchill said

Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world...

 

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.

 

A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

 

I agree. I'm convinced the most evil individuals on this planet are definitely not muslims. The high face card individuals in the current deck are technoNWO agnostics, fake ‘christians’ and fake ‘jews’ ...but - with the possible exception of haitian (d)evil - no darker, repressive, fear based religion exists than 'Mohammedanism'.

 

 

 

 

 

If people base their identity on identifying with authority, freedom causes anxiety. They must then conceal the victim in themselves by resorting to violence against others.

Arno Gruen

 

...a distorted development of autonomy is the root cause of the pathological and, ultimately, evil element in human beings.

Arno Gruen

 

 

 

‘real muzlims kill sufis’ :(

... that should reveal enough ... unless you are totally clueless ... I’m just sayin

Gawd damn...so glad that I chose to stick my head up.:rofl:

Silliness abounds...back to the river...all ya all presume too much: "Beware the ills of perfection".

Real Jews... fake Jews. Real news...fake news...even worse; alternate facts...

 

Silliness (of a man's simple mind) abounds... live like a fish.

 

Edit: Roughly 75% of the world is water...some get it...some don't...

Edit again: Eventually, some 7 year old child will yank on a barbed hook in your jaw...you may be tossed back; or...skinned, cooked, and eaten; or...you may go belly up from age. Regardless...it is what it is.

Edit again...twice: That 7 year old may brag about the catch, have you stuffed, and hang you on the wall...though your image, and your greatness may live on...you're still a dead fish. It is what it is...

    • i believe the min deposit is 50usd, except for wire transfer its 250. 
    • yes this is true, its not abattle of brokers (though a good broker should be chosen first) at the end of the day its the trader and his decisions
    • the fed reserve is sending mixed signals, it does affect crypto badly, im at a lose at the start of this year but i still have forex anyway haha
    • Yeah very strange name for a broker. To add my two cents I would also vote for Hotforex very honest broker with reliable platform. Filled my orders perfectly at yesterday breakout on Gold after the Fed meeting. 
    • Date : 26th January 2022. Market update – January 26 – Central Banks Eyed. It was a wild Tuesday in the lead up to today’s FOMC decision. Both bonds and stocks closed lower as the Fed is widely expected to outline a rate hike strategy with a 25 bp liftoff in March. Exaggerated fears of a 50 bp move and perhaps a string of 4 to 5 hikes this year have dissipated, though we suspect the markets are still positioned too bearishly. We expect the policy statement and Fed Chair Powell’s press conference to be less hawkish than anticipated, hence setting the markets up for a bit of a relief rally. So far today, Bonds have struggled, stocks hit the skids again in the US session but eased in the Asia session, and FX markets have remained in a narrow range as markets wait for the FOMC and BoC. Australia was on holiday, which made for somewhat lower volumes, but it was mainly the upcoming FOMC announcement that put a lid on markets. Ukraine tensions and speculation over gas supplies to Europe in case of an escalation of tensions with Russia are weighing on sentiment. UK PM Boris Johnson now has to answer the police over “partygate”, with calls for him to resign getting louder.   USD (USDIndex 96) continues incline – 3rd day above 20-DMA. The 10-year Treasury rate is up 0.4 bp at 1.773%. The 10-year JGB rate is also slightly higher, but the 2-year paper found buyers as the BoJ summary shows commitment to loose policy. – The bank’s stance focused on providing stimulus to reach the 2% inflation goal. Treasury’s $55 bln 5-year auction was super strong. Equities – The USA100’s -3.18% drop paced the weakness, followed by a -2.8% loss on the USA500 and a -2.3% decline on the USA30. Today, Topix and Nikkei corrected -0.25% and -0.44%, GER40 and UK100 futures are up 0.66% and 0.84% respectively, while the Euro Stoxx 50 is 0.7% higher. Earnings: General Electric, beat on earnings, but missed on revenue, which weighed heavily while American Express provided upside support on solid earnings led by record credit card spending. Microsoft beats expectations with $18.8bn profit. Central banks clearly are getting nervous about the risk of second round effects, but the IMF’s growth downgrades yesterday also highlighted the risks from slowing momentum in China and virus developments. USOil – up to $84.60 – API data shows US crude stocks fall,Biden threatens sanctions on Putin over any invasion, markets await Fed update, US approves oil exchange from strategic reserve. Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi movement launched a missile attack on a United Arab Emirates base hosting the US military. Gold – down to $1844 from $1854. Bitcoin at $37,000 handle. FX markets – USDJPY steady at 113.95. EURUSD at 1.1295 & Cable at 1.3500. European Open – Bund futures are under pressure, while US futures are moving higher, while in cash markets, the German 10-year Bund yield has lifted 0.4 bp to -0.08%. BTPs are supported though and spreads are coming in. Today – Along with today’s BoC and FOMC result, the earnings calendar is heavy. Today’s slate features several biggies, including Tesla, Abbott Labs, Intel, AT&T, Boeing, Anthem, ServiceNow, ADP, Lam Research, Crown Castle, Norfolk Southern, Freeport-McMoran, Progressive, Kimberly-Clark, Amphenol, Ameriprise, Corning, Nasdaq, Hess, Teradyne, Seagate, United Rentals, Raymond James, and Teledyne. Data includes the December advance goods trade report Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) CADCHF – Breaks 0.7300 (R1) from 0.7195 lows on Monday.
