Chaos Clinic Recap
Here are Al's comments
3:50 tough day, good month. Start all over on Monday; Thanks for coming. See you next week
3:48 out flat
3:42 don't leave-this one is not over
3:34 GBK to 740-was support, now reistance; GBK=Good bye kiss
3:23 my way of doing that was to look for the possible end of the congestion using the Face of God pattern
and then place a stop to enter on the breakout; posted updated FOG chart in CCT room
3:18 when you get chopped up in a congestion, have to stay cool, and not miss the end of the congestion,
because chaos follows dullness
3:16 This is a cover on close type trade
3:11 elected short at 39 -putting stop at 45
3:10 may break down in last hour
3:00 last rally as per Fractal Grid -it suggests up fractal could end before close
2:52 on the MTRainbow chart you see a the 440 minute and longer EXMA's down, a big drop, and a correction
strongly suggests lower prices whenever Crazy Harry really leaves the station
2:41 Crazy Harry is the conductor of the S&P train-he likes to stop in a station, fake pulling out, so as to get us hobos
to jump on. Then he backs up, and the conductor comes through trying to catch the hobos.
2:24 putting sell stop 739
2:32 at this point, I've been stapled, folded, mutilated, and spindled ; just can't take it personally
2:29 stopped for -6;
2:28 stop missed by one tick-I'm using 6 points, but market it telling me I should be using 8
2:17 on choppy days like this, one of the best tools to use is the Fractal Grid, from
the Chaos Trading Made Easy-posted that chart in the CCT Room
2:11 on MTrainbow chart, the 440 EXMA has curled up; bullish
2:05 buying 749 stop 743
2:04 new high
2:02 trading bothe sides of 110 EXMA -not good trading weather
1:54 one more trade time left, and Moon timeline coming up near it; support 740, resistance 749
1:51 aborted for 0 ; not ready
1:42 stop to 748
1:38 there is the break ; may see a good drop ; I will try to ride it
1:36 the chop has been bad all week, so I'm trying not to react to it and let my stop do it's job
1:33 Whoops- still spiking, but stop held-sit tight
1:31 finally looking better
1:15 resold 745 stop 750
1:08 prices did make it to the energy center at the last minute-now give it about 20 minutes to repel
1:06 I need to not take that whack personally - just stay calm and wait
1:01 stopped out for -5 ;caught by streak on Sun timeline
12:57 prices did not get to the energy center, so after 1:00 look for it to repel prices down
12:53 stop 748.5, just above the 440 minute EXMA
12:45 sold 743.5 stop 749.5
12:44 Jude 3 sold
12:44 looking weak, but has not broken down
12:36 in the secon trade window-watching for a sell setup because prices are struggling to go higher
12:29 posted a 3rd chart in the CCT Room; and on the AUX page I am running my Jude3 autotrader
12:19 I have an energy center at 748 and 1:00 -now acting as a Chaos theroy strange attractor-after 1:00
it will become a strange repellor
12:13 on the MTRainbow chart, prices rallied up to the white 440 minute EXMA. If they cannot get above it
a decline may set up near the next trade time
12:02 updated second CCT Room chart
11:48 tried way too hard - taking a break for 30 minutes
11:44 aborting -6
11:40 gone flat
11:14 still in trade window -sold 740 stop 747
11:10 posted a second chart in the CCT room
11:04 yesterday started out "twichy" - looks like today is starting out the same way
10:55 out flat on double top
10:49 stop to 41
10:44 looking better for now
10:40 setting my timer for 12 minutes-if not working by then I'm out
10:38 sitting on my hands here-stop not hit but I'm nervous
10:24 stop 40-tricky here because of the cluster of vertical timelines
10:22 bought 44 stop 38
10:21 aborted for -4
10:17 sold 738 stop 744
10:15 updated my CCT Room chart
10:10 prices dropped back below 110 EXMA and getting red 3 minute candles-may set up a "hook and go" sell
10:06 have resistance at 744.5, so I'm expecting this rally may fizzle out
9:58 streak up the vertical white Node(O) timeline-watching to see nature of first pullback
9:54 first trade time is 10:36 -getting buying curling the 110 EXMA up
9:44 posted a chart in the Certified Chaos Trader's room
9:25 prices dropped toward the Venus(blue) and Moon(yellow) electric field flux lines; Moon should be support

2/27/2009 1:07:02 PM MT TG****:: on the other hand, if it broke to new lows, 707 looks doable.
2/27/2009 12:52:02 PM MT AMBG:: This was a tough day for everyone. I'm down 12.5 points today. Done beating myself up for today. Monday we start fresh.
2/27/2009 12:50:10 PM MT TG****:: my worse day in a long time. If it somehow managed to make a new high could well be a very strong move to 760s or even 770s.

2/27/2009 9:03:08 AM MT TG****:: placing a sell stop at 39.75, will trail it 1.75 to 2 pts below 110 with a 6 pt stop until out of trade window.

There is a way for you to put moneytide.com on your white list. See the yahoo site or call them to learn how to do this. The problem is not on my end.
