The market continues to wait on the news of the next Greek bailout. Each day that something “might” happen, the market grinds higher. When that “something” falls flat, the market goes flat again. After an early slide this morning, the market received the headlines below from Bloomberg and resumed its pathetic, no volume, and zero volatility churn higher.

 

There was a “final” deadline LAST Friday; then another “final-final” deadline Sunday evening; then another on Monday; then (today) Wednesday there was the “final-final-final” deadline; and now there is another: Thursday is the latest “now-we-mean-it-for-realz” deadline, before the latest ridiculous summit where Eurocrats will convene to steal more national sovereignty on behalf of the banking mafia.

 

Will this newest deadline be met? Would it matter if they didn’t meet it?

 

TROIKA DRAFT GREEK ACCORD SAYS 2012 GDP TO SHRINK AS MUCH AS 5%

GREECE TO CUT MEDICINE SPENDING TO 1.5% OF GDP FROM 1.9% OF GDP

GREECE PLEDGES TO MERGE ALL AUXILIARY PENSION FUNDS

GREECE TO PLEDGE 20% CUT IN MINIMUM WAGE IN TROIKA DRAFT

TROIKA DRAFT GREEK ACCORD RENEWS PLEDGE TO CUT 150,000 EMPLOYEE

TROIKA DRAFT GREEK ACCORD PLEDGES 15,000 STATE JOB CUTS IN 2012

GREECE TO PLEDGE ACCELERATED LABOR, PRODUCT MARKETS REFORMS

GREECE PLEDGES PERMANENT SPENDING CUTS IN TROIKA DRAFT REPORT

GREECE PLEDGES NOT TO INCREASE SALES-TAX IN DRAFT REPORT

 

But no worries folks – the genius Eurocrats of the Troika exclaimed that Greece will actually believes Greece will “return to growth” in 2013. Yup, in less than 11 months Greece will be on its way to stellar GDP growth. Give me a break.

 

Trade well and follow the trend, not the so-called “experts.”

    • EU is still trading in a range. I'm heading out of town tonight and won't be back until Sunday evening. 
    • Came back to check on price after an hour of meditation, EU came within 3 ticks of target... Fascinating the ego brings up the story of betrayal, as if the market was out there to get me. I then reminded myself cool, this trade went over 2R. Even better yet, I acted consistently with executing my trading plan! Let the market do its thing. 
    • I took this limit long on the retest of the earlier 123 and support area. Target is near top of the zone. I notice that my target needs to be more mechanical in the sense that I may be influence to have a more/less aggressive target based on the results of the last trade. I have collected some modifications for the next batch of trades. 
    • Correction: the GU made it to 45 out of a 49 tick target. It was a 2.5R full target, not 3R. The EU long trade was 7:15am EST. I will refrain from getting up even earlier with the goal of not missing the next one. I notice after each trade, the mind, with the desire of wanting to experience a win, subtly pushes me to deviate from trading plan. My main concern with this set of 20 trades is build a greater sense of consistency in my execution and self trust. I realized the outcome of each individual trade absolutely does not matter. If I started to care about it, I am assuming that somehow I am responsible for the market's movement, which I am not. I am only responsible for following my trading plan, which can be adjusted after the 20 trades based on the stats I collect. 
    • GU closed for -1R. It made it to 2.8R but not quite the 3R. There was also a EU long trade that happened about 4:15am EST. FOMC is over now so let's see if we can get a nice trend setup today.
