Chaos Clinic Recap
Here are Al's comments
2:44 I'm done for the day. Thanks for coming. See you next week. Take a course.
2:41 out for 0 as timer expired
2:36 last Tide time is 15:50, so I will cover then if still in
2:28 need to be patient. I use a digital kitchen timer to set a "be patient" time; just set it to wait 15 minutes
2:20 after about 2:30 should see some short covering
2:07 sure likes that 1305 Sun/Mars flux
1:57 stop to 1302; note the divergence on the MTRainbow chart
1:48 trade still OK-low on Mercury time suggests possibly reach +M315 flux at 1311
1:42 posted a combo CTME/FOG chart in the cct Room
1:38 the market has held up long enough now that a second wave of buying should come in
1:23 stop to 1301
1:18 got some Moon juice passing the Moon timeline
1:16 on the SPBias chart, the bias has turned bullish
1:13 posted new FOP chart in CCT room
1:10 in trade window, have 20/110 crossing and curl on 110, buying 1304 stop 1300
1:05 So far today has been choppy and hard to trade. Happens often on Friday. Tendency now will be to hold up / rally into the close
12:54 prices have recovered above the 440 EXMA and the 110 EXMA, so turning a bit bullish
12:39 updated my first FOP chart in the CCT Room.
12:26 aborted my fractal trade for 0. Didn't like trading flat.
12:13 passed the Sun/Mars timeline, then got weaker. My fractal trade from 1303 stop 1307 looking good
12:04 I'm finding "All About High Frequency Trading" by Michael Durbing fascinating. Explains where the big boys focus. Happy to know they do not focus on the 4 to 10 trading hour fractal I do. But they do fuel the streaks in the fractals.
12:00 so far my second fractal overlay looks good
11:54 not much to do but watch. I note that the low was timed by the Mercury timeline, sending prices back up to the Mercury flux line
11:38 from the high, I see 1-2-3-4 moves of 7 in a down Chaos Clamshell. 4's tend to congest
11:28 bounced back up to the Mercury +M090 flux and the 440 EXMA
Hopefully next trade time will give a good setup
11:18 updated both charts in CCT room
11:08 I've found another fractal, which I have pasted in the Certified Chaos Trader's Room.
10:57 using that fractal, in my own account I got short at 1303. Too fast to explain what I was doing. Not a hotline trade
10:53 I have placed a Fractal of Pi chart in the Certified Chaos Trader's Room. That room is open
to graduates of my 4 main courses. See http://moneytide.com -> Courses for details.
10:48 I'm back. Price action confirms a down fractal
10:33 taking a breakfast break
10:29 apparently fractured legs and fractals aren't mixing well this morning :)
10:26 aborted for -1
10:21 fractal patterns get their name from the word fracture. They are not continuous, nor do they necessarily connect end to end.
A new event, espeically one that creates a big vertical bar, like today's report, can begin a new fractal.
10:17 EXMA's are not the only tool I use. My primary tools are my eMylar pattern overlays, like the Fracatl of Pi, Face of God, Fractal Grid, etc.
10:14 getting a sell on the 110/20-selling 1304 stop 1307
10:12 attracted back up to the Sun/Mars flux
10:05 trading both sides of 110 EXMA-staying out
10:00 sometimes I'll make a second effort. Here is see i had a 20/110 sell, and now a rally back to the 110. If it falters,I may sell
9:46 whacked for -4. Happens. I was too anxious to make a trade.
9:41 may get stopped
9:33 bought 1305 stop 1301
9:32 possible continuation buy setup
9:32 outcry session open-still quiet
9:25 stuck on the Sun/Mars flux; suggests holding up until the Mars/Sun timelines at 12:00
9:12 pretty flat - this could be an MM stinker day.
9:04 on the MTRAinbow chart, the white 440 minute EXMA is up. A break above the 1308.5 high will attract break out buyers
9:00 today's trades are 9:31 and 13:33 . The first may not give a good setup due to the report reaction-fast motion going nowhere
8:40 Interesting move by the big boy's computers on the news -vertical swing up to Moon T+090 and down to Moon -T000/EXMA 440
Centering on Sun and Mars conjoining +R090/+H090. Fascinating that the astro stuff is visible in the age of computer trading
9:00 Good morning from Chaos Manor
