Banked +33T from the (too fast?) Dax breakdown ES was suggesting. If it plays then I think ES has decisions to make either 91ish or 85ish in which case lots left on the table, but the printers are still at work so I'm not bothered if it just lifts some more instead, after all it is a Friday.

that'll do for the week

It's a Friday and looking on Forex Factory it's a pretty quiet day ahead (famous last words) so, without headlines for the media to rationalise the moves with, they might just keep ES pegged between 91-96, a definite maybe at least. Above 97 or below 90 and it could start swinging significantly again so they'll need an excuse from somewhere.

The first two weeks of November were personally awful but I have steadied the mind and have also cleared +140T for this week so I'm back on track, albeit with a funeral to attend on Monday.

Trading over (I'll only screw it up otherwise) it's time for some left-over Chinese takeaway for a not so classy lunch while watching some truly awful cricket lowlights.

Good weekend to one and all.

stuck to script

No trades for me today due to end-of-life party attendance. Dax still sticking to the script and had it's own advance turkey mini-party:

Have to think that an uber-optimism US-Iran agreement might at least be associated with some sort of top, but such is the strength of the Gann cycles that we can't just go guessing them for now.

nothing doing

No trades again today, sensible decent range trading probably over for the week and, other than bot crawls and shoot-outs, might already be over for the year...

This was a personal target, so it's in here rather than in the main Lumosity thread.

Going after a few more targets next month and next year, but vacation starts soon so I might lose a few hundred points instead...

Anyway, not too shabby for an old git.

Indeed....not too shabby regarding OUR age.

Great job so far, I'm just scratching the 1k barrier as well...

vacation starts


Spent the last 2 days doing system(s) housekeeping, my fingers are poised above the off switches. Flying in 8 hours time with just a sparkly new Acer 720 Chromebook (bloody love it so far!) to a warmer climate. Leaving the kids in charge, must be mad. If I vanish from the ether without trace then the plan failed miserably.
