British defeat on April 19, 1775


British attempts to disarm the Massachusetts militia in Concord led to open combat and a British defeat on April 19, 1775. Militia forces then besieged Boston, forcing a British evacuation in March 1776, and Congress unanimously appointed George Washington to command the Continental Army.

Is interest rates about to start going up?

Yes, I know - it does not make any sense - FED is about to cut rates...but....real world interest rates are not always what FED wants it to be.

The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated

Like most of you was riding complicit wave up, that was quite boring indeed, but things are finally changing. 10 years old bull market is most likely coming to an end - it just does not know it yet.
I went short on new high that had no real volume, no follow through, keep adding to puts positions during volatility crashes (speculative cheap OOM puts 3-6 months out) and started to build SPXU position from 28 handle. Looking for possible SPX drop to around 2700 range

Another idea I am watching is long gold (you know - I looooove gooold, though I have not touched it in either direction for a while now). And stop is nicely defined of it does not go my way. But...not opening this trade just yet...

P.S. May 30, 2019 Pulled the trigger od big GLD long position @121.10 as well as some /gc long

One of the reasons I stopped flying

Unless I absolutely have to. That is ($874) lower than price yesterday - over $1000

Short first time in a long time

Looking at the monthly charts of major indexes, as well as "horsemen"/pillar stocks - all of them struggling to get above TD Resistance line and time is tinning out for move higher.
DJ transports was having difficult time for a while now - not a good sign indeed.
Here is SPX chart - you've this one - you've seen them all.

P.S. Just looked at my last post as of 2/17 and glad that was sitting on my hands due to as I said "Is market about to run out of steam?" - it did indeed - was trading in the very narrow range for 3 months.

Will be keeping an eye on possible Crude Oil long - something is going on with that puppy...

Are equities markets about to run out of steam in the next few weeks?

I am starting to set wide trailing stops on my long stocks positions, also watching possible strong trade in Crude Oil - which direction is too early to tell, but for as long as it is above my magic long term line - it is long.
Otherwise it was quite a boring (trading wise) period after I closed long Natural Gas one month after I called long on Nov 16th 2016 ( net % gain was 25% on position, of course that were contracts, so a tad more indeed) - which I might go long again.
