Blogger & Retired Russell 2000 E-mini Futures Day Trader

Blogger and retired Russell 2000 E-mini Futures Day Trader.

I was first introduced into the world of trading when I took an options course in Porlock, England in 1997...it involved buying options on the FTSE 100 Index.

The instructor was a Scottish fellow named Jock. He was ... more

Mr. Brown, I have since added 2 words in my post to make it clear I was talking about Russians attacking these things in America, NOT in Russia. And you do NOT have my permission to put words in my mouth which I clearly did not say in my post (re: your last sentence)...if I'd meant to say that, I would have said it, but I did not.

Twitter Knocked Off Its #1 App Perch
2 years ago

It's a free social media platform...many Conservatives (journalists, politicians, etc.) have signed on who are fed up with Twitter's censoring practices (especially the last several days), although anyone can sign up and check it out...it only takes a couple of minutes. You can make it a public or private account in the Settings & Privacy section. It functions very much like the Twitter platform...easy to use.

President Trump's Legacy: In The Making...
2 years ago

P.S.

To clarify...it appears that the "Wall Street Powers-That-Be" have not been encumbered by negative emotions about Trump, nor have they stopped to second-guess (or examine in detail) the soundness of his numerous deals and executive orders that he's completed during the past 3 years. Instead, it seems they're satisfied that they ARE concluded, thereby eliminating indecision, which seems to have more of a crippling impact on their decision-making in the markets.

So, watch for an ATR spike, or a series of spikes, on the SPX monthly chart as a potential signal that "TPTB" have, either, lost faith in the President, or that an outside unforeseen event is triggering a market turnaround.

In other words, follow the money. And ATR spikes (with an input value of one period) may provide a clue as to turnaround points and where money may be headed. This is something I've been monitoring on ETFs for approximately the past 10 years...seems to be a good tool to have in one's kit.
