Maybe down to 34250 IGM this morning to shake out all the scary longs then followed by a bounce. I hope.

The mark of a professional, however, sounds like this:

         It is my fault.  I traded this position too large for my account size.

         It is my fault.  I didn’t stick to my own risk parameters.

Don't tell me you still had your longs?????

 

Can somebody confirm whether after these wacks, the forecast was up again as per A and C's posting last week....

 

To compensate for my losses I am now VERY long for today.

Please say a pray for me as most of these longs are VERY golden...

Sometimes I wonder how effective QE really is... I mean, how much of this money actually makes it "out there" in the form of new loans, increasing demand, spending and capital investing i.e. stimulating real growth etc. ? Instead, it creates "silly" money which we see all over in the stock and bond markets.

On dailies this is the 2nd bar on the 3rd leg down. Another bar down before up again?  Or is 34 400 going to become support?  Contemplating taking another long at these levels.   

Long 34 411

Argento's target was down to the 800 level (Top40 fwd) which he called spot on, then long from there.
