The clusters are a new way of looking at price. "Balance" "Test" "Bracketing" I still have a few merged.

Easy to guess that it will do it again.

Surprise - Price moves away then comes back to value, or
Unlikely - Price and value move together, or
Likely - Value moves before price.

Confident positions will likely hold longer. Unconfident will drop it quick.

Why did price spike through that same area 3x? 4x really starting with the gap up.

make sure its something beautiful, you don't want to stare at a skull and crossbones all night long.

My previous avatar was something I made in Photoshop, intended to portray some image. I spent some time on it, trying to dial in the colors and the contrast, and in the end I liked it. Much better to look at than the picture of a t-shirt I had on a few nights ago. But that previous avatar was also designed to go with a title, "Catching Big Waves". That is a thread I abandoned, and thought of that sometimes when I saw the image. But did not know what I wanted to change it to. I liked the ones that were animated, like @Big Mike's, but played with some and they were not doing it for me.

@Zondor posted something recently, and as I read his post and his "signature" several times, and stared at his avatar, it is not that pretty to look at either. But it was what he chose. And before that I remember his avatar being Ming from Flash Gordon. Also, not the prettiest looking character.

I got out of the shower one night and put on my favorite t-shirt, has that image across the chest. I bought it maybe 10+ years ago when things in my life were completely different. I had everything I ever wanted, needed nothing, made my own schedule, did whatever I felt like, and lived on the edge of the earth with the world waiting beyond the horizon. I did not have a care, and the pirate thing came from being a Jimmy Buffet fan. But it signified some combination of freedom and adventure and not worrying about what other people thought.

I doubt it will last long, but I took my cell phone and snapped that photo of my own chest, and replaced an image that was getting tired for me.

If oil comes up to the 94.50 area, that is a possible LSP in a possible larger C leg down and would provide a nice entry (without confirmation) for shorts. If it breaks, that could be saying something too.

Looking at the ES move, and CL's reluctance to follow, I am watching for a delayed reaction this morning that may "repair" that area where price moved through so fast, which would bring price into that LSP area.

Crude has a local DT at around 93.85. That may also become a point for stop building.

I would imagine there are a lot of eyes on ES this morning to see how it opens, and that brings the possibility that CL may wait to see.

My TUT email of the day;

"And the day will come when all of the gold in the world will not appeal to you as much, Gary, as just one more day of being who and where you already are, with what you already have.

If it hasn't already.

Thank you,
The Universe"
