Just a thought

maybe some riots and burning will create work

John said...

Lagscrew.

Most big city police departments are very under manned at this time because of budget cuts. Even some wealthier suburbs have cut police budgets. It is a possibility. I remember 74 and 82 and both times, crime was way up.

A-B,

That reminds me of a friend of mine who exactly matches Boris' description. :) Super super great person, but I was just very surprised to hear about the move into currency trading... at a well-known hedge fund no less.

Boris,

Do the pressure graphs take into account intra-day behavior? (Today's mid-day selling comes to mind.)

Anyway, have a great weekend. Hope you can get some well-deserved rest. Great daily sketch. :)

John said...

Vin,

My novice guess is that the sell off and then recovery was "THEM". They shook the longs out- encouraged the shorts to get in- and then shook the shorts out. THEY probably sold and rebought at a much better price. Without Boris and the pressure chart- I would fall for some nonsense like that.

Vin said...

John,

Agreed. It looks like big money had a lot of fun today. YBR/WBR have me a little bit cautious about what could come in the future, despite the pressure graph data. Perhaps we will begin transitioning from YBR to WBR as Boris has suggested.

John said...

Vin,

If I remember correctly, sometime last year the YBR transitioned to WBR. I just can't remember circumstances. YBR also has me concerned but you just have to monitor everything. I think that the next day Boris has pointed out will be telling. Almost like last week, suck everyone in the first part of next week and then a nasty surprise that shakes everyone out. I am sure I am older than you so I have accumulated dvy and sdy for these instances. Good dividends & when you buy fairly low, you only have a point or so on the down side so far. I day trade the Qs usually.
Have a good weekend

Dear Vin,
I am sorry, I was held up few personal things late in trading.

No the prossure graph does not know intraday staff.

Good Trading

Dear John,
Enjoy Good Trading
Good Weekend

Vin said...

John,

I wish that I had discovered Boris before September. He's got so much experience inside of him. :)

Thanks for the pointer about YBR/WBR. I'll keep an eye out. I've gradually adopted the same sort of mentality about big-money, but it's good that you remind me. Intra-day observation can distract me from the bigger picture.

I've not always traded heavily (more swinging over multi-week periods), but the past 2 months have been other-worldly, and I let myself get sucked into the fun. 2-3 weeks of action in every day: once in a lifetime I tell myself. :)

I really hope that we don't get a multi-year flat-lined market (or even something like YBR). I know so many people who are trapped into long positions from much higher market values... Still, credit contraction is real, and it bothers me that we might have borrowed too much growth from the future.

Have a great weekend, John. :)

Vin said...

Thanks for the info, Boris. Good to know. :)

Never worry about taking your time with responses. It takes much more than that to try my patience. :)

Vin,

About big money shaking weak hands, stopping, pushing and playing the markets, i can only tell you, you did a precise diagnosis, this is exactly how it works and especially on currencies.
