ES continues to hold Daily supports, only loss of 1720 will start to get me thinking that Santa isn't real.




No trades today.

ES continues to attack it's expected daily extension target c88-90, with bulls taking it in a harem-scarem vtol that suggests bears now need under 1770 to consider a stuck in chimney situation, under 55 for a lack of mince pies and still under 1720 to likely confirm a total lack of yo-ho-ho. Otherwise Gann cycles on.



Might well (of course it is, duh) be linked to the Euro's fate, which appears to have just traded a short extension as well as the long setup. Who dares wins and the other will likely lose a whole lot more. Tener cojones, Janet?




Dearest inscrutable Dax continues to walk its own thin ice tightrope of throw-over and die, or serious breakout and fly.

First short I've seen trade cleanly for a while, be interesting to see if progress can be made towards any sort of character change or if it's just the start of another pullback to one of a few levels, this being the first definite maybe. Bulls need to see the short series break soon, bears need to lose 76 and then some.

Only on remote access at the moment so no trading.

Not quite HFT speed but bulls soon broke the short series and used the extension to go straight to target.



Not shown, but redrawn extension now gives support 77-80, target 93s. Wary if 77 lost.

ES traded a second extension to target and now has support at 88.50, losing 88 might suggest a bigger pause towards 1760-65 is needed, otherwise gay abandon continues as before.




Struggling to trade at the moment, after the loss of m-i-l and a bipolar related relapse on my part. Have terminated my Sprint markets scalping project. Regardless of progress made I know that ultimately it is going to kill my mental health and my accounts.

Decision made. Unless I can somehow predict which are the good days and which are the bad days.

I will once again work towards a slower, more analytical approach, a slower pace of day and search for that elusive R:R. You never know, Five A Day might actually happen sometime.

Dax has been a chop-suey ball-ache this morning while ES pretends to find support around 85's. Scalped (no more time Sprints now) +27T but barely a decent trade in there. Still looking for the elusive R:R.

Today looks important as a spell caster for either halting the frolicking under Janet's skirt..., or letting the party continue to rip. (1.32 v 1.41)





Regained a more relaxed approach today, only took a single meagre +8T Dax nibble this afternoon, but what I did and, more importantly, what I didn't do, was solid and will do for today.
