Good point Pete,

Do you know where they measure the 7% from? Is it the range for day? Or 7% deviation in one direction from RTH or ETH open?

22nd January



Yesterday was a somewhat less wild day but still a 43 point range in the day session.



I'm still sticking with the opinion that this is not normal market conditions and whilst I don't want to repeat everything I said from yesterdays prep, I'm just going with momentum until such a point as the market settles down again.

Whilst this market is putting in great runs, it does require a fair amount of focus to keep engaged and on the look our for a sudden reversal.

Volatility wise, I see any downward move through 1800 as potentially triggering another sell off. It's a little harder to gauge the upside. At some point, we could see a huge move up if overall sentiment is on the side of the sell off being overdone. It is not for me to say when sentiment will change but the amount of participation should help us.

Again, I am not really looking at recent levels to play off as I think it's not that sort of market.

We've gone from a riverboat tour to white water rafting.

At least it's not dull.

No prep - no trading PC right now.....

Looks like my operating system and display drivers no longer want to play nicely together...

27th January

Well - my trading PC totally failed, so I got permission off the wife to buy a shiny new one. Yesterday was a test run and so today should be back to live trading with a laptop connected too - just in case.



Market doesn't know what to do. Whist it did look like the August low has been rejected, we now have a lack of direction. The range had narrowed and volume has dropped. Chances of being chopped around are good today. Volume will likely come in again if we can break this range but otherwise, it's time to be patient, especially if you miss the early swings.



We are close to last weeks high (1907.50), so we should be cautious as we head to that level. I expect some follow through if that holds.



Going in to today, I'm expecting 'normal' ES behavior. So watching yesterday VAH/VAL and range for clues off the open as well as areas of high volume from overnight. Looking to get in on an early swing and if I miss it, going to have to be patient as it could be choppy.

Weekly Numbers
Range 1851.25-> 1904.25
Value - 1876.50 -> 1902
S1 - 1834.85-, R1 - 1932.75

Daily Numbers
Range 1851.25 / 1874.50 -> 1899.75
Value 1888 -> 1898
Globex 1829.25 -> 1878.75

Today only 1907.50

Settlement - 1896

Long Term 2109.25, 2006, 1929.25, 1843, 1814, 1773.75

I hope you had a decent backup!

Yup - I had all the important stuff written down on the back of a Campbells instant soup box.

To be honest - my wife remembers everything anyway....

I use Dropbox - everything important goes on there, so apart from activating software again, I'm up and running very quickly once I have the new PC. Also helps when I travel, my laptop is always synched.
