Forget your volume, tick, monkey bars, trendlines, flags, or whatever else you think you need. Just post your daily pivot points and trade off of them...

Anyhow have fun...

Market looking a little weak here, but that means nothing these days. A hero will ride in on a "rainbow" mule, (can't be a white horse anymore) and the world will be saved once again. Probably tomorrow so our fearless leaders can go home for Christmas proud of their accomplishments.

Off to the Philippines, but I will be trading over there and will keep throwing my 2 cents worth of wisdom in this journal....

Current Market Conditions:



Interday action was VERY good; My favorites CL, TF and the AAPL weaklies were very good to me today:

Where is our Hero on his "Rainbow Mule"??

Market weakness still enforce.

AAPL already down $ 10 from it's close

Oil had a nice run last night and is in a short right now, first target now being the pivot at 86.30 and then maybe yesterday's low of 85.81...we'll see

Have a great trading day. Mine will only be until 10:30 CST and then I have to hit the road...

Take care.

Time to shutdown...

Oil still fighting it's pivot 86.30 and is in a range of 86.56-86.05; breaks either and it will in all likelihood run to either 86.8 (and maybe PHOD of 86.97) or 85.64 (S1)...We'll see..

Have a great weekend...

Though NO huge runners in AAPL so far today, there were some very nice profit opportunities...

Really got to run.

PS: I see CL almost got to R1 @ 86.80 ($ 86.76), not over yet though and with the DX tanking, it might still get there...

Anyhow, my wife is tugging at me, really got to run.

Ingat! (take care)

Market looking weak here, if the market breaks it's Friday lows we might fall for a while. We'll see........

PS: Sunday's open is up for now, let's see what happens when the London & US markets open....

Stay nimble and above all have fun!

No breakdown today, the divergence of the EUR/USD to the market on Friday resulted in the market following the EUR/USD today. (One of them had to break and today it was the market).

I have levels marked for longer term breakout points. Some very nice plays today in CL, TF and AAPL weeklies again.

Take care and have fun!

Here are some potential plays for tomorrow. Typical rules are buy/short at the price posted and use the price-stop difference in calculating how many shares to purchased based off a $ 200 maximum loss.

Today was a very good day across the board. My favorites TF, CL, AAPL weeklies all had some very nice runs today.

PS: One of my buy picks yesterday was AMZN @ $ 255.56, the weekly options in that pick more than tripled today!

Euro still strong, DX still weak, so market should still have upward bias tomorrow, but again be nimble as anything can shake this market.

Take care and have fun!

@Vikings1,

Are you a vendor, do you have a website, do you have anything for sale - products/services/mentoring or otherwise?
