Price is a vagabond

Somewhere (at a certain price area) it settles down for a while, until it doesn't feel comfortable anymore, and then it moves quickly (aka trends) to another area where it settles for a while.

Sometimes it escapes to another continent (aka crash or massive shortsqueeze)

Trade related one-liners

Hi all,
This is how I describe trading a choppy day to non traders.

"Picking up nickles in front of a bull dozer."

Better with a drawl:
"Pickin up nickles in from of a bull dozer."

Short version:
"It's a dozer day."

What is a pattern?

Nearly all price patterns can work some of the time, try to trade them and most will work none of the time. - Me

Investors generally overestimate what they can do in the short run but greatly underestimate what they can do over a lifetime.
