Old pros don't like this action ...the old guys like to see the Dow underperform the broad market but we can let this occur for a few days ...the low volume doesn't concern me is the economy ...stupid !

Can we honestly move ahead with 0 earnings ...or will the earnings be the cost reductions from laying off more and more. Seems like the VIX is indicating that all is well...I am never one to call CRASH in a blog but when the market acts like 87 99 and 2002 , it gets me on the short side...since today was considered a UP day even though the average stock actually LOST MONEY ...the odds are up for a poor rest of the week and the ES resistance is still intact...and remember ...those whom are buying the stocks are those whom were selling in February.

So insiders selling too...frothy tape and a recovering economy ...out of recessionas far as we are concerned ....what to do....I am trying to short a tough market now and if it doesn't work by Thursdays Job data ...we all jump on the 1999 train cause if it doesn't fall now never will !

This week should give us a retest of the support from the BIG Rally we tripled our money in. See why we are short now and be with me on the next ASCENT as we may go to 14,000 Dow sooner than most think

Tomorrow up and Friday down with Monday down and Tuesday up ! That is what the market will give us the next 5 days so let's try to get our positions in today for tomorrow as our biggest gains are now on 2 day trades which seems logical as the gap ups and down will get us the extra gains from well timed picks the day before ala our FXI trade.

Keep punchin and we have sentiment and indies NEUTRAL in a corrective market.

tomthetrader: NAZ looking for help though
(2:38 PM) DE_TTT: The rate, the veracity of which has been in question over the past year and as a result prompted the development of an alternative NY based survey, measures the level at which representative banks say they can borrow from other banks for "X" period of time in a given currency.
(2:38 PM) DE_TTT: The change "will allow the submission of rates from banks participating in the London market but without a physical base." The change in the definition goes into effect Fri and may see a gap up in Libor rates as a result of the added participants.

All the signs are there except 1 ! The economy is not yet improved ...hard to CRASH with a New Bull just a few months old...yes we will get a scare in the coming 2 weeks but it will be over by the time Money managers cook the Books at month's end so you can short here with IWM puts and TF futures and make a million or just wait and buy in late June...please join me for a in depth report !

Hi ,

A gap up is a fun time for those holding call options and pure AGONY for put options see 50% of your position disappear at times in seconds ...I have seen it and been there done it ....not much since the mid 80's but it still happens daily !

Tomorrow I am going to go out on a limb and say there will be a GAP UP that will be sold pretty quick and we may be making the monthly highs tomorrow ( if they are not already in). Why in the world is Tom so bearish ...why did he buy all those Ag and oil plays he going MAD ?

Well , I am under some stress but it usually brings out the best in me and I haven't seen anyone come close to my short term calls so I can be a rear end and try to call one day ! Besides it is not like we have all our eggs in one basket as our IRA account is safely in Cash and we are only 50% long in ag and oil.

Traders picked up some QID and may get a lot more by 9:45 am tomorrow ...if things fall into place we will once again this week be shorting 100% Traders in QQQQ puts NQ short futures and QID . You can throw in some BGZ and a partridge in a pear tree too ...If we jet up and get stopped out at the 960 level then I will admit I was wrong and move on....But those whom have traded with me over the years have often checked with me before laying money down so we will see !

I will update and I am sure RED has updated the site and has sent you his ideas ...he is doing a wonderful job since coming on board and is a tremendous talent that will get better everyday as he has a passion for this market !

See you at the jobs....ooops ...jobless report...census workers and government workers ...nope shouldn't count ....revisions look poor.


Possible Rocket ship at 8:30 could turn into a N. Korean DUD by 10:00am ?
