Staying short but it's not easy as we get different signals etc.


Slow selling with dead cat bounces of no more than 25 ticks in between is a CLEAR SIGN to stay the course. I covered at 46.10 before NY open and then after 30 minutes reshorted around 46.11. When will i get completely out? Whenever there is a FLUSH DOWN and then reversal of that FLUSH DOWN.

I am sure you all are aware of this but just in case, until 3/29, london close is at 12:30 ET. We move forward first week end of March and London does it the last week end of march. Similar situation when we fall back.

For reference:

Zerohedge: Oil Price Faces Another 20% Drop Due To Contango Math

Zerohedge: Oil Price Faces Another 20% Drop Due To Contango Math

I think Zerohedge is rather bleak in its outlook of life and seems to be continually predicting the end of the financial system but I thought you guys might appreciate this article. It claims to reference a Soc Gen piece but extensive Google searching has been unable to find said article
You need to understand the economics of the floating storage play, Soc Gen says.
It walks through the costs of floating storage and makes an argument that prices need to be a lot steeper for it to work. There's what appears to be a nice diagram illustrating this but it's almost unreadable.

Floating Storage

Interestingly when searching for the Soc Gen article I stumbled upon a plethora of other articles saying the floating storage arbitrage is closed and nobody is doing it.

Platts March 12th:- ANALYSIS: Narrowing crude contango takes steam out of floating storage
The floating storage play eyed by oil traders around the world earlier this year has failed to materialise in any significant manner because of a narrowing of the contango in Brent-related crudes.

Of around 42 VLCCs taken on time charter earlier this year with options for floating storage during the contango driven demand period, only four were confirmed to be doing floating storage in Asia, a VLCC broker in Singapore said.

A London-based broker put the number of VLCCs being used for storage at three. "We have been tracking these ships very closely and, as far as we can see, the DHT Falcon, the Eliza and the Alsace are the only VLCCs being used for floating storage".

Financial Times March 9th :- Traders left adrift as oil storage trade loses its lustre
The world’s biggest oil traders rushed to hire supertankers at the start of the year. The idea was to buy cheap barrels of crude, store it at sea and lock in a profit by selling contracts in the futures market. But only a couple of the almost 40 vessels originally chartered to hold crude offshore for up to 12 months are doing so, shipbrokers and analysts say....
Ship & Bunker March 4th :- Floating Storage Down as "Super Profit" in Crude Market is "Just Not There"

WSJ Feb 26th :- Oil Storage Sinks as Price Bobs / Storing oil in tanker ships is becoming less profitable amid heightened volatility

I have utmost respect for traders seeking to understand price activity to any market.

However, I am at odds with indicators of the modern era.

If Gann or Babson can....with a pencil and paper turn $130 into $12,000 in 1909.... what is your Market Profile going to do for you in comparison?

Either your self-convinced it gives you an edge, or in fact...its a exaggeration for your eyes to relate with.

Here is a measure of proof...out of love, someone is taking the time to help me...


Wyckoff's post to US Congress and Wall Street....publications sustaining Gann's trade decisions and predictions.

Is Gann a fluke or was his perspectives true... as compared to market profile?


I can tell you truthfully, he would not use it.

Gann had his mind... pencil and paper.

Have a lovely day.

I had no idea there were wheat options in 1909, I knew agri derivs have existed for centuries but actual listed options back then, wow. Surprised livermore didnt leverage up on these.
