My TUT email from Tuesday;


It's as if everyone has a built-in, happiness-now button, Gary, which can instantly change how they feel, no matter what's going on in their lives.

But for many, most of the time, they prefer not to push it.

Go on, push it real good -

Do you know what it sometimes means, Gary, when you feel a bit bummed out and aren't sure why? When you catch yourself looking back over your shoulder and wondering? When you feel doubt, sense uncertainty, and experience fear? When you sometimes wonder what's taking so long?

It means you're normal.

Yeeeeeeee-haaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

I am leaning long, but the range is so tight. I would like to see a washout move lower with some volume.

Sounds good

Here is what im thinking as of 11:39 EST

Im short from the highs trying to target yesterdays lows....may be just above the excess area we will see

If we hold that area im expecting the market to just come back into balance rotations

Then a possible spike/probe high into the close targeting 93.80-94.00

As alway any thing can happen but here is my take on the day so far

At the moment we have been quietly 1 time framing lower

" I will follow my rules, I will take my stops, I will be disciplined and i will work with the market....NOT AGAINST IT! Professional mind control is the key"

This looked like a good place to get out

Watching a lot of absorbtion here right at the lows of the major balance from yesterday before the spike down



Week vwap below @ 92.47



Here was the heads up for my exit also

This is a tough view for a recovering scalpaholic. One day at a time...
