I wish all traders the very best of success in achieving their goals.

My hope is that something I post may be of benefit to another who might pass this way.

Monday, January 31, 2011 Yesterday's drop has been retraced to 54% and it looks as if tomorrow will be a strong down day. double top at 1283.75

(this turned out incorrect!)

Monday morning news


I have started clipping the morning news to see if I noticed trends in what they emphasize and how they describe events.
this is an example

Tuesday Strong upday to 130...

opps!I think I zigged when I should have zagged !

Though I meant February 2 in yesterday's post I typed it so it will stand as an error.In any case I'm thinking there may be some surprises for the bulls tomorrow Feb 2- just a theory.We'll see. I will try to be unbiased tomorrow morning, as I should be every day.

Red sky in morning

A pic taken from my balcony.

I feel the action in the S&P500 perhaps has some warning of a sharp correction.
The lack of commentary on the big down plunge last Friday was interesting.

However, the market grinds higher and higher with a high of 1308.25 and a close of 1307.50 on the ES for Friday 4 Feb, 2011. I was hoping to do a weekend review -but it's past my bedtime.
My priorities are:
1. get more rest
2. work less hours and if I can find the time get in one walk each evening.
3. even less hours and start back at the gym.

Blessings and good health to you all - may the year of the Rabbit be good to you!

Tomorrow = Monday 7 Feb 2011
Est high 1309.75
est low 1300.
est range 9.75
(adj h/l by difference from close to open tomorrow am)

observations:
NR trendless day.
Nt prices unreliable - switch to Sierra
make sure you do a cntrl shift R until then

HL est 9pts - mechanical est 10pt actual rng=6.75
o/n+pre=5.50
make switch to alert for NR (narrow range days).
@if(aver .... < mech est by 3 then ......)

Dir +1 vs +1
MidChg +1 vs +1 (chg +7)


O=1326 L=1324.50 buying at O-1.5 looks good for Zim Ben.
