CabaretVoltaire -

You must be enjoying this. Obama must be your favorite president.. I am guessing he had about 500,000 shares of FAZ before he decided to make the market fall. He's getting pretty good at doing that anytime he opens his mouth btw.

Other things :

Gotten into FOREX recently - scalping or playing medium size quantity lots with 2 tick stops. Am holding some long term ones as well that have paid off nicely and I am sure will continue to do so.

LONG:

EUR/AUD - Buying everything down if I can get it this coming week to 1.5665 - sell stop at 1.5635 - will sell at 1.60. Am VERY confident in this whole move taking place in the coming two weeks, if not most of it this week, will start pulling the trigger Sunday night/Monday morning whenever this broker opens

Already SHORT:

NZD/USD
AUD/USD

Will be going short

EUR/USD @ 1.4480 (if it hits.. should have pulled the trigger earlier)

These are all monthly scale I imagine to pick up about 18 cents on both NZD and AUD and expecting to make 12 cents on EUR/USD with Take Profit at 1.32

So I guess you could say I'm all strong dollar. ** And VERY SHORT AUD ** These look like very high probability setups for me or else I would not be playing/posting them. Most are all based on the "consolidation" theory.


Like I said basing on monthly time frames.. I just got really lucky on my entry a few days ago and cleaned up on AUD/and the NZD/. Then I went on to do something really stupid and use all my margin to play news event. All I have to say is ***** Fin Min Khan and his big mouth Yen policy. So lost a lot, then today tried to be a hero and play the whipsaw in the GBP/JPY - haha.. was up A LOT then added to position at the wrong time and got hurt (of course no stop loss, and suffered 6 points of slippage somehow of course...)

Another thing I do not like is the "swap". I am paying $29.50 on $600.00 for holding 5 lots over the weekend...? That's robbery at its finest. How much is everyone else playing percentage wise?.. I know some brokers do differently..So I'm basically paying 5% interest rate for holding on to a position for 48 hours? That's sweet.


Ive been doing this a lot lately since apparently I am going to be sick forever haha, so with my money from my temp. job (yeah im a real winner) I'm slowly trying to reengineer my empire. I am thinking FOREX is all about consolidations more than anything. Inside bars and repeating patterns occur almost like clockwork. Only thing I do not like is the spread like the GPY.JPY mine is at 8 points. It's so easy to get whipsawed in that.

IMO though the only way to play is like a 2 pip stop with high number of lots on high percentage candle formations. I see a lot on

1) 233 tick

2) 15 minute (a lot on EUR/USD - made 20 pips on the surge today which was another one of those consolidations)

Will most likely be moving account to Oanda as well, I have FxOpen and it seems their MT4 is always acting up when you are going opposite way of the market and you cant close your position...finding that a little bit strange.. something def. up with them.. if I had some real skin in the game I would def not be using them now..

Anyways other than that I am becoming pretty accustomed to being the bubble boy and still trying to get with Becky Quick.

Everyone and their brother is short right now. You know what that means. I am guessing the confirmation of Bernanke will send us back to previous high levels and pro's right now IMO are all adding to positions. IMO we just went through a short squeeze (the consolidation) and gapped up on all indexes and we are now testing those levels. I would be loading back up as far as the market gave me if I had the means.

I know this will seem counter intuitive to you, but I see equities and forex as two sides of the same coin. It's like the replublicans and democrats. They head fake you by making you think there is a difference between the two. Heads they win, tails you lose.

There may come a time very soon when we see both tank in comparison to REAL things. Like oil, gold, food, etc. Or, you might see equities go sky high, BUT priced in ever more worthless paper. Forex and equities are based on paper and since they own the paper you play by their rules. Which means they are the House and the House always wins. So why play?

You see, it's just like the game of politics. If people would wake up and stop thinking they can 'punish' one party by electing the other, and instead elect a party that champions the Constitution, then we would actually start to make real moves back towards freedom. The federal reserve is UnConstitutional, nuff said!

Well FOREX is totally unregulated, I know its a quazi scam depending on what broker you have, but check the trends in dollars switching hands everyday, I believe by 2016 or something there will be upwards of 15 Trillion + exchanging hands (EVERYDAY)- as long as US Regulators dont shut down the industry with this new 10:1 leverage BS rule that only benefits the CME - now that is the real joke my friend

No reason you cant make money though in the meantime (if you are lucky enough) IMO

Those cocksuckers... They did it...again.

That's why they didn't wait for Brown to take his seat.. even if they had time...

Final vote... 60 democrats FOR, 40 republicans against... and Brown was against it. Anyway, I'm sure a republican would have changed his mind anyway...both parties are scum.

New debt ceiling 14.3 trillion

100% debt to GDP here we come...early 2011...if the dollar doesn't collapse before then.

Now i'm sure they will confirm that traitor Bernanke...

Lifting the ceiling by 1.9 trillion dollars! They must be counting on outrage fatigue.

I wish I had something to cheer you with, but there's some serious volatility in the markets today. 'No surprises' that's about all you can say.


DJIA




10119.25 down 116.91 (1.14%)


FTSE at close: 5145.74 down 71.73 (1.37%)


Bad news for Toyota:

Toyota car recall hits US, Europe & China

Better news for Ford, at least:

Ford posts $2.7 billion annual profit

America the nation of for profiting and record braking corporations, where the citizenry doesn't count anymore unless is to generate tax money to support the wealth of the few.

So it doesn't matter if the debt ceiling becomes no longer accountable and unlimited as long as the markets are profiting and tax payer money is there for when money is lost on some profeteer's scams.

Very soon no even th DOW will be the target to measure the well being of the American economy, only the news of what DOW leaders will be telling the news.

So if the DOW is down but all the leaders are up everything is OK and peachy.

We are entering now the age of nothing but blown out deception, unrestricted and without punishment.

All of reality will be based on the DOW.

All worship the DOW.

Bow down before your god.

Just a reminder that the Dow Jones Industrial average is made up of stock picks by the Dow Jones corporation...and they change it now and then.

www.dowjones.com...

The Dow Jones is an news company...

Why do we as American's and Canadian's give it the deep respect that we do?

Is it or has it been ingrained into our psyche over the past 50 years?


Do you trust the Dow Jones or do you trust your own view of the economy more?

Very astute.

The problem is, the MSM 'trust' it as a valid indicator of the general state of the economy. The layman, in turn, trusts the MSM. And puts a few more fries in his mouth...

Even AAPL, with its cult following and impressive sales, can't avoid the downward stress. Just a couple days ago people were cheering and pumping AAPL up to 214. Now it is back down to 200. Look at those giant psycho candlesticks. I love it. Let the horrorshow begin!

The emotional conditioning of slaves: duty and loyalty.

Bernanke is an example to look upon...

That's why.
