Yes You Can... Cash In On Chaos!

Chaos Clinic Recap

Here are Al's comments
3:02 looks like it was another day like yesterday ; I'm done ;thanks for coming. See you next week. Take a course
3:00 aborted 817
2:52 After 2:30 is "Whoosh Time"; I have another fast cycle at 3:20
2:44 I have another fast cycle hitting at 3:00
Crazy Harry needs to get moving, because I have to leave in 40 minutes
2:38 this is the 3rd trade window- I will just carry this trade through, since it still looks OK
2:32 this is the move 4 of 7 in a down Chaos clamshell. Move 5 is usually the biggest
2:30 this rally is part of the Fractal of Pi down-i expect it to fade soon
2:23 that fast cycle popped it up-holding my stop
2:13 this correction should end before 2:40-watching for that fast cycle at 2:20
1:55 stop to 819, just above the last high-using wider stops because of noise
1:44 Geronimo! (a cry used by US paratroppers in WWII as they jumped into combat)
1:40 still getting that junk like yesterday-once we break below the low, it should be gone
1:25 I have another fast down cycle at 2:20, so I want to be patient during this countertrend rally
1:19 got the grease at 1:13, then support on the Mercury flux - I expect it to break
1:05 once we make new lows, this becomes a "cove on close" trade similar to the GO BIG hotline rule
1:00 note carefully on the MTRainbow chart how the EXMA's have kinked down, forming
little "knees"-this is what I mean by "curl"
12:56 I will hold this for max gain , even past 9 points
12:54 I have a fast cycle hitting at 1:13
12:40 last high -18=803.5, Fractal of Pi down projects 792; same numbers I got earlier
12:28 stop 822; this could run down into the close
12:21 sold 817.5 stop 823.5
12:18 looks like Crazy Harry is slipping
12:15 this is a pattern I call "sitting on the back porch" after a long rally, bet a drop, then sit there, forming
a "back porch." Sooner or later Crazy Harry (conductor of the S&P train)falls off the porch
12:08 coming into the second trade window - not interested in trading this junk.
But I'm alert for a down move with some juice to it
12:00 regular TG says this looks like yesterday' junk-It does so far. That could change after we pass the
Mercury/Pluto and Sun/Venus timelines ; On the Chaos Clinic chart their price lines dominate so far
11:54 updated chart in CCT room
11:41 on the MTRainbow chart, we have gone flat. Odds favor rolling over and going down
11:34 rally got hit by selling- watching for a sell set up
11:20 aborted -2.5 -not working
11:15 obviously I should have waited - got distracted taking a phone call from my wife about a warning light in her car
I will be SOOO glad when she is done with her 25 mile commute-she envies mine of walking downstairs
11:12 posted another chart in the CCT room; this is a rizing wedge counter trend correction-when it breaks down,
it could drop fast
11:03 resold 817 stop 823
10:59 this is why you don't just take 20 EXMA crossing 110 as a signal outside a trade window-too many false signals
10:52 getting convergence on the MTRainbow chart-here I use a Face of God pattern to look for the end of the convergence
I make it to be about 11:20, near the next Tide turn
10:43 on the Aux page my modified Jude3 auto trader is running-it has not done anything yet-Jude sleeps late
and avoids the first 89 minutes of the outcry session
10:41 this rally could top out near 11:00 , the normal pattern
10:35 stopped out at 817 - for -3.25 ; may resell
10:26 extremes of moves come about 12 points from the 440 EXMA, so 803-12=791, possible low
10:19 an exponential moving average that is "limit down" or "limit up" forms a straight line
On the MTRainbow chart you can place a straight edge on an average to project it forward
the white 440 projects about 803 at the close
10:12 looking good - stop to 817
10:05 streak down the 10:00 timeline comes from it being 45 degrees from sun
Posted charts in Certified Chaos Trader's room
10:00 high on the red -Tide
9:56 popup off the Pluto flux line-need to let the stop sit there
9:48 the MT rainbow chart gives a quick assessment of the mood of the day-bearish today
Moon square natal Node can lead to nasty down days
9:40 on the MTRAinbow chart the white 440 EXMA is at 819.64, so this should be a good stop
9:38 I was elected short , putting a 6 point stop at 819.75
9:35 one of the first things I do is put a 10-12 hr Fractal of Pi overlay on the MTRainbow chart-today a down one
9:32 we have an early low at 814.75 -in case of a breakdown I'll put a sell stop at 813.75 -don't expect it to be hit
but in chaotic systems, one has to expect the unexpected
9:28 on a gap down day like this we normallty get a cuontertrend rally into about 11:00, then turn down
9:12 market down from yesterday's close-had a nice Face of God pattern at the top
Today the Clinic will be shortened because I am going to my wife's retirement party at Kaiser
Permanente this afternoon. We just had a big snow - I got 14 inches - so things are a bit
chaotic around Denver today, so I have to allow extra time. Trade times are 09:56 12:56 14:52
I'll be here for the first two
9:00 Good morning from Chaos Manor

trades and tips. Below are the chat room comments from this clinic

3/27/2009 2:12:11 PM MT TG****:: posted a FOP in CCT room. I find this to be a pretty common standard sized fractal that shows up pretty often. Have a good weekend everyone.
3/27/2009 1:57:34 PM MT TG****:: too funny.
3/27/2009 1:26:25 PM MT TG****:: placed a sell stop at 12.5. Doesn't seem likely but I still have room on my fractal grid for today's elusive woosh.
3/27/2009 11:51:51 AM MT Al****:: good term for it
3/27/2009 11:45:40 AM MT TG****:: Stellar read on it Al. I got double my usual short fill by accident, decided to go with it. I used to call this daily pattern on my fractal grid the waterfall.
3/27/2009 9:49:37 AM MT TG****:: looks like yesterday's herky jerky junk.
3/27/2009 8:24:35 AM MT JAB:: Al's the BEST.......thank you, Al
