Yes You Can... Cash In On Chaos!

Chaos Clinic Recap

Here are Al's comments
1:33 out -2; really time to leave-see you next week
1:26 fractal grid from CTME is telling me to hold
1:00 when a trading range expands, it usually does so by 50% or more-that suggests a move to about 58
12:53 OK, maybe I'll stay -stop was too close twice -resold 55 stop 57
12:45 stopped -1 ; time to pack up the camper ; thanks for coming-see you next week
12:41 nothing to do but wait - 110 and 55 EXMA's say trend is now down
12:33 stop 56.5
12:29 resold 55.5 stop 57
12:25 stopped +.5 ; now watch and decide to quit or keep working it
12:22 stop 56.5-just above the 20 EXMA
12:19 stop 56.75-cover commission
12:14 stop to 58-cover is 52 if we get there-just going for 5
12:12 stop 59.25 as make new swing lows
12:11 candles show resistance at 59-good
12:07 not conclusive yet-just sitting and waiting
11:56 stop techniqe got me in a hair befor the 20/110 crossing; I also watch a 55 mine EXMA, and had a 20/55 crossing
11:54 elected short at 57 stop 60
11:50 about to get a crossing on 20/110; candle support at 57.5 -putting sell stop at 57

11:40 the 110 EXMA is curling down, so no buy setup
11:33 the slope of the 110 EXMA matches that of the red -Tide, so may get a 20/110 sell crossing
if so, I will watch for the first white support candle, then sell if that support is broken
11:30 still no more than 3 candle runs of one color=mud
11:24 failed to break out, so still stuck in a trading range
11:20 getting into the trade window-so putting a buy stop at 64
11:15 this move got some follow through, so I'm watching to see how it deals with the resistance at 63
11:04 at this point in the day, it is clear that we are not rocking and rolling-more like stuck in quicksand
10:56 here we got only 3 white candles, then reds- a weak move-to get stronger, it would need to break 61
we did get a 20/110 buy crossing , but not at a trade time-if it were, I would place a buy entry stop at 61.5
If the move was not a head fake, that would get me in on the follow through
10:50 now we broke up out of that scribble, but are just in another congestion area from 57 to 63
10:40 now that we see we are in a congestion, we can look for a physical reason-we find that we are trapped
between the -T270 and +T225 yellow Moon electric field flux lines- so it all says STAY OUT
10:34 you can also estimate risk by looking at how many 3 point or more swings you see and how fast they
are changing - today I see 7 already , changing about every 10 minutes -extremely risky for trades with 3 point stops
10:31 markets run like rivers-with long smooth stretches and white water rapids - one needs to stay out
of the rapids, and not get caught up in the head fakes
10:28 so that early fast drop has turned into confusion and congestion - tastes like a cotton ball
10:25 doing just that, I see we are congesting between 1257.25 and 1252.25 - a 5 point range
10:23 then I like to look at the range of the last 12 candles to see where the support and resistance is at
10:19 one thing I watch is how "clean" the 3 minute candles are-are they marching in a trend of mostly one color
or are they overlapping and switching colors back an forth ? I want to be watching when they are "dirty"
10:11 now we have an opening range of 10.5 points, and are trading inside it near the middle-smells a lot
like a trading range day-common after a few big, emotional days
10:05 that 10:00 resonance is fed by public overnight orders, and often ends between 10:00 and 11:00
today we have a Natural time point at 10:20
9:56 very fast swings - 10:00 is 3 hours from solar noon, so watch for a low there
9:46 bears out early - could be on green +Tide; early high was set by Mercury-magenta M - flux line
suggests down until Mercury timeline at trade time, in a price to time move
9:37 the last hour yesterday was very choppy -I expect that to continue today
9:30 opening up a bit-no trade until 12:11-may be a dull day with range less than 12 poinst
have key prices at 1260, 1265, 1255
