early morning end of month rat cave views

Seem to be in interesting places within a still bullish trend, so I'll drop these long term views in now rather than wait for the weekend.

Dow still consolidating, maybe building a diamond?

Sp500 with an interesting equality:

Euro backing off from weekly resistance, it's been running in extensions so a full pullback to 1.33 wouldn't be unexpected:

Dax has so far put in a sweet terminal throwover:

Will it stay at that? edit: just noticed there is no overlap in that wedge so as it stands hard/wrong to call it a terminal, just an interesting place, maybe, maybe still a leading, or none at all.

We are entering the traditionally strongest seasonaility period of the markets, be impressive indeed if we continue to just lift from these spots without at least a pause for breath or a larger gulp.

trapped but back on track

Cash Dax is trapped, coiling between yesterday's low and today's open, should be a significant move either way, might not be today.

Done for now, need a break, 9 winners, 4 losers, net +46T.

a midday daxology


An important (usually when I'm on a break) Dax setup, holds the 0.786 after the first wave, then holds the 0.5 of both waves, can be seen several ways from an EW standpoint, which makes it a largely pointless luxury to know which.

Thank you good Sir!

Murphy says the best moves happen while you're on a break. Watched the EERIE episode of Spooks, came back and took two more scalps for +32T. Didn't catch a real move either way, too busy playing on futures.io (formerly BMT), good job I don't have a boss.

Dax is in bronco mode again with the ES hissy fit. Sat pondering on the gap, hwb and OR now. Still no major changes from last week yet, but maybe soon.

Looking after hours ES bounced off potential extension support, certainly large volume reaction, but only likely confirmed if 60.50 taken out above, then 65, failure below that would likely drop us back initially to the 1720/30-31 that never traded, and maybe signal a more significant trend change but we're not there yet.

Wasn't around for the evening session so today finished net +78T, a welcome haul.

paint drying

Queen bitch has spent another couple of hours putting on her makeup this morning, thanks for nothing. Maybe gets trashed after a night out sometime soon, the party girl is definitely preparing for something leggy.

So, scalps only again, 3 winners, 1 loser finished for now net +28T.

end of month progress

October finished on track, recovered most of the late hiccup.

Have included Friday (1/11) and will only update at week-end nearest end-of-month from now on, more often is likely counter-productive.

long time no see


Been a long time since I looked at my auto paintbox, it still does pretty things. It's about time I got it integrated to stop the knife catches and did something useful with it, maybe even make a bot, lol.

If I had one, my headstone would probably have read 'At least he died with a to-do list of a million things', or maybe more likely just mutterings from the missus 'He was a nutter, but at least he was my nutter', as she hoovers up my ashes.
