Today it interests me though, as I would just like to understand, why? The answer must be in understanding options better? I think you can see information there if you know how to read it. I don't.

As usual, the market seems to have a mission. It won't stop, at any cost, until that mission is achieved. In my mind, that is ES 1336-1337, as I mentioned earlier, and what I am waiting for to close my long. No amount of shorting will stop it, because it's going to happen. It doesn't matter what the volume says. It doesn't matter how many big flashes of red you see on the tape. It's going to happen, no matter how many or few contracts it takes to get it there.



Josh Great call.

Account Update from Mirus Futures:
Upcoming Greek Elections & Margin Update



Due to the uncertainty surrounding the upcoming Greek elections, there is the potential for extreme volatility when the markets open this Sunday evening, June 17th, 2012.

For this reason, Mirus Futures is increasing our day-trading margins to 3x the normal margin template for Currency Futures and the Dollar Index effective at
3:00 pm CT today, Friday, June 15th.

We will re-evaluate the margin requirement by Monday morning and expect to return to our normal margin requirements by 9:00 am CT on June 18th.

If you plan to trade this Sunday evening, we suggest a very cautious approach based on the possibility of extreme market swings. As always, our 24-hour OrderDesk will be available on Sunday night should you need emergency trade support.

You know what I just realized...the fact that this was quadx helped to remove volatility. Very slow and orderly motion nearly all day.

Yep!

Orderly advance; institutional 'mid-level' lieutenants/majors/captains had their "marching orders" { those would be the hedge fund and underlying traders on staff while 'daddy' was @hamptons or out of the city (take your pick of any 8+ international cities on a Friday nearing summer) }.

Soldiers do what good infantry do; NO 'juking' the stats, just buy the sh*t out of that b*tch and ask questions later @ the conference call(s) this weekend. { Juking the Stats - YouTube }.

"Let's get ready to RUUUUUUUUUUUUMBLEEEEEEEEE! on Sunday night USA EST approximately 5-7pm est!!!!

Have a smooth weekend Mr. @GaryD !

peace
