    Nothing makes sense in this market (up on bad news, down on good news, then up on good news, etc), and the only way to trade it is to not try to make sense out of anything, just respond to what it's doing and how you read it.
    Well said sniper!

    Not sure about you guys but my thinking is we'll be seeing the DOW at least testing the 50dma, may even have a chance to fill the gap near 24600.
    No moves for me yet.

    100% G as of 14 Feb. I missed out on a bit.

    Calling this round of consolidation fairly complete. Trend lines appear to have held nicely.
    My confidence level isn't maxed though. Thanks to coolhandluke and nnuutt for all your efforts and thoughts. Seeing other opins of course is helpful.

    70%% G 10% each C,S,I. cob today.

    5% C,S,I 85% G at close today. I'll take some off considering the crazy volatility. Should say summertime volatility. It can be nuts. Next week could continue so I left a wee bit in.

    100% G July 24th

    10% each C, S, & I 70% G Aug 6th

    5% C, S & I, 85% G Aug 13th

    Down 767-points on 8/05, up 312 on 8/06, up 371 on 8/08, down 391 on Monday, and the latest turnaround Tuesday pushed the Dow up 373 yesterday. Are we having fun yet? Have you got it all figured out? Easy, right? Welcome to the headline driven market, which seems crazy, but if you pull back a bit, there is a picture being drawn. https://www.tsptalk.com/comments.php


    I know some would say I could be much more aggressive. I do believe in locking in the green and agree I should be more aggressive. Lately though I've been seeing a lot of the majors forming pennants that could go either way, in a vey big way.
    Now I'm locked out till September no matter what happens. 5% CS&I can go with it unless I see the need to pull that as well.

    So, thanks to Bquat, coolhand, whipsaw tsptalk and others for helping me with the overall picture in aiding my own decisions. I know I was buying when some were selling & vice versa. The next couple days should help with that picture.

    Best to all!!

    The bears are trying like crazy to kick the bulls where it counts. And the media is playing right into it as well blowing every bit of news out of proportion.

    Look at gold starting to hit 2012 resistance. https://finviz.com/futures_charts.ashx?t=GC&p=m1 and the banks doing their thing as well. The SPXN coming into a wedge https://finviz.com/quote.ashx?t=SPXN
    All in all I see a very good potential to see double bottoms near 7k on the NASDAQ https://finviz.com/futures_charts.ashx?p=d1&t=NQ around 2700 on the S&P https://finviz.com/futures_charts.ashx?p=d1&t=ES and even a double bottom around 25000 for the DJIA. It could hold its support around 25500 but who knows. If those support levels break we're looking at possibly going under 24k. Take a look at longer term trend lines and those support levels stick out a little better imo. I'm certainly not a qualified analyst or advisor. Not expecting all this to happen overnight, just like the bull market there are up and down shorter term trend lines. And I'm betting on a decent bounce soon. I was neutral to bullish but starting to have my doubts.

    But, if the bulls can somehow start squashing the bears then they can turn this around in a hurry.

    Better news...
    "UK wages rise at fastest rate since 2008, but unemployment also up:" Morning Brief
    Just putting this here so I don't have to keep searching for it.

    Heading out, should be back 2nd week in September!
