Whilst the percentage of net new 2-week highs exceeds the percentage of net new 10-week highs, the bulls will be in charge and shorts will continue to experience pain. Until then, we remain long.

What? Really? Sorry, not being funny or nasty, I just want to make sure you are not kidding around: You really using bond money to trade with?

Yes I do. Not a gambler, but believe that one should definitely make use of the current low interest rates. Same as lending money for a business; just much cheaper. (That's anyway what the banks do, don't they?)

The answer to you is a simple one.

 

If you don't know what it is:

 

Sit back, take a deep breath and do the right thing (and that does NOT include the "bond money" option for you sir).

Thanks, I'm quite rustig, not panicky yet; used to things going wrong by now; been there done that. Just that the answer to doing the BEST thing now eludes me still. I will NOT close my loosing position though as that's one things I've learned; stay with the original plan, unless there's very good reason to have a change of mind of future prospects/targets. Also, the market hasn't "run out of me" before...

Bond/Savings money NOT EQUAL TO Trading money!

 

Only trade with funds that you can afford to lose.

 

So close those CFD's and get back to liquidity...

What he said! 

 

I'll never be able to sleep at night knowing that I have debt in the market! I know Jesse Livermore pulled it off, but I'm no hero!

Guys, please help me here: Should I close my CFD longs (those in profit) and get some margin to hedge my short position on the ALSI or what? I don't really want to use some more bond or savings money... Too late to close my AlSI shorts; doesn't fit in with my plan anyway. (No comments re money management please; I know! Not the best strategy.) Or use the bond money??

From your perspective, Lekkerry is faceless and to a degree nameless, so any opinions expressed are just that, opinions from someone on the Internet  :D

What happens when the severely ill patient is taken off the ventilator?

1. His vitals may become volatile as
2. His body and organs try to adapt
3. He better be strong enough to start breathing for himself
4. Or else he is $@&@!$

Simply put, be prepared for anything!

What happens when dog bowl is taken away?

1. Dog fixates on bowl to detriment of itself and all around it

2. Dog howls for food

3. Neighbours call police/fire department

4. Dog is impounded

5. Nothing else has changed

 

At any point in any timeframe there are always choices available.

Next first thing - what are they?

1: the NDX/NAZ may confirm a downtrend next week, bottom within a few days, then all four major indices are aligned for the next wave up.

2: the NDX/NAZ is currently bottoming, with no downtrend confirmation, and all four major indices remain out of sync for the next wave up.

3: the situation in Ukraine/Russia worsens resulting in a panic selloff in equity markets, and all four major indices realign at the early February lows.

 

The real question is - who, including me, is likely to be interested in any of them.

Africa will never be regarded as adult until all of its organisations stop admiring and protecting criminal dictators.

MSM et al presents (sponsored) opinion as fact and seeks to indoctrinate. Journalists without ethics proliferate in a swamp of filthy lucre (BBC inclusive).

In response to decades of racism by fearful minority whites called apartheid there will be an eternity of racism by revengeful majority blacks called all kinds of excuses.

Corruption is not yet compulsory but it may as well be - Aggressive africanization uses the racist Employment Equity Act as a club.

Too many humans are too busy copulating to bother about the irresponsible, unsustainable and progressively catastrophic population explosion. 

Whilst humanity prevails so will evil. Evil will survive and thrive through sophisticated indoctrination and other conscience-suppressing disguises.

Desmond Tutu has been praying for the downfall of the ANC since 2011. Clearly he needs some assistance with such a difficult and worthy task..

Cockroaches still lurk on sharechat because it is prime real estate for their con artistry, duping and grand theft.

What happens when the punch bowel is taken away

 

 

 

The Fed's balance sheet has ballooned to $4.3 trillion from $800 million in the past five years as the central bank has electronically created trillions of dollars in order to buy their own government bonds and mortgage-related bonds in a radical and indeed reckless attempt to kick the can down the road and prevent a systemic event or a recession or depression.  https://lh5.googleus...uG7C3Wa5IOMqKxg

 

Look at how the Dow Jones was rising because of QE and not fundamentals.

I wonder what the next catalyst for further upside will be.

 

Every bull market has to start showing cracks just after five years. I am on the short side of the market. Any rallies will be loaded into my short war chest.

April can be a possible last rally. Or we might just falling from April 1st, were all the fools will be left holding the bag.

Shorts be patient

 

Can this Bio tech ETF spill over to other US indices.

 

We have seen the Nasdaq have it's biggest drop since October 2012 due to this ETF last week

Only time will tell
