AmenRa's Daily Candle Wrap

Bearish short day (heavy selling also). Not a shooting star because it needed to gap higher from a long day. Closed lower and confirmed bearish harami. No daily 3LB changes. Only 4 more days of QE!!! (and I think the market is starting to realize this)

Bullish short day. Gann 2x1 level is history. Uptrend back in vogue. New high on daily 3LB with reversal now 80.72. Go Bucky! Go Bucky! It's your birthday! It's your birthday! Drop it like it's hot!

Bullish LONG day. Tested the fibo ext of 61.8% (support) and passed. Then went and tested the 50% fibo ext and passed. Midpoint now above 10 SMA. New high on daily 3LB with reversal still 16.28.

Bullish short day. Still below the 89, 55, 21 and 10 SMA's. Held the 144 SMA. Couldn't close above the Gann 4x1. No daily 3LB changes.

Bearish short day. Not an inverted hammer because of too much lower shadow. Still searching for a bottom (but it ain't over yet IMO). Midpoint is way below the 10 SMA. Next fibo level of 1.2935 is coming soon (where's that sound effect for Jason in Friday the 13th). New low on daily 3LB with reversal now 1.3536.

Bullish long day (again). Trading above weekly 3LB reversal price of 38.62. New high on daily 3LB with reversal now 35.95. Timmy thought it was a nightmare but realized he was wide awake.

Doji day. An evening star wants to go supernova. New high on daily 3LB with reversal now 17.12.

Basketball again tonight. Cornell playing 40 minutes from home should give them the best game of the night.

mcHAPPY is sensing a change in rhetoric. Not just talk of ending purchases, but selling 'assets' - the term 'assets' is used very loosely in this context.

mcHAPPY said...

mcHAPPY does not think 1200 will be reached this go around. Bucky is strengthening like a mo'fo'yo. Obviously the dollar strength is not reflected in equity and commodity prices. This is the scenario I envision (full disclosure: I am talking out of my ass and my breath is surprisingly fresh):

DXY is on the uptrend to 83-84 range to end wave 1.
S&P sells off to 1045 range.
DXY corrects down to very low 80 or very high 78/79.
S&P rebounds as DXY falls taking out 1200.
Women dance on tables at the bars AND at the convents and Johnny breaks out the $100 bill for a few lines at Brian's summer kick off BBQ - that my friends is the end of P2 in late June/July.
DXY starts a major rally that no one notices until 83/84 and panic ensues.
P3 has arrived.

what a fucking show!

the market is mainly manic but sometimes the depressive part kicks in-

Phil Town opined that the DJIA could hit 14,000 before it crashes- saying that America has been in a period of booms and busts for the last decade-

sounds like an economy gone off the fucking rails to me

some of you stick readers, take a look at the daily of HYG:LQD

Hells yeah-

"Record-low interest rates are still needed to rev up the economic recovery, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke told Congress on Thursday." Yahoo Finance

like the oldest song and dance in the books- he may want to add that creation of money at no cost is the other important feature to modern American economics

the wizard just means to say that people need to borrow.

I knew Butler would be dangerous... schucks.

I forgot that 45 seconds is an eternity in college basketball... maybe cuse will pull it out... doubtful.

borrowing is cool- as long as it is for business investment- plants and equipment-

laptops and flat screens- not so much

this shit is becoming staggering- lenders have a contract with the borrowers- but we have this-

"The White House plans to announce on Friday it will require lenders to lower the mortgage payments of some unemployed workers and encourage lenders to knock off some principal debt of homeowners who owe more than their home is worth, sources familiar with the plan said on Thursday."

fucking unbelievable- but here's why the desperation-

"The plan also aims to increase the Federal Housing Administration efforts to keep people in their homes."

i.e.- foreclosures not allowed- homeowners a minor concern- the banks another story

and this-

"The new efforts include at least three and at most six months of temporary assistance for jobless workers and incentives for mortgage servicers to write down part of the principal balance, sources said."

that is where Freddie and Fannie come in

Administration to expand mortgage-altering effort

Might as well write off the principle and give everyone in U.S. one free home. Be done with it.

Use the saved money to go shopping.

lot of volume today, seems we are set up for a little whoosh down, and then the buy the dips voices will start.

sarcasm??? Or- are you making the observation that- that will be the reaction?

BuffaloT said...

When will this end. I swear, we have done the dra , the flop, and now the river. Everybody knows anyone sitting at this table is all in with nothing but junk off-suit crap. Just show the hands, go bust, and start over. Please for the love of God just show the hands and get it over with.

Oh yeah and screw the Cuse, done in all pools now.

AmenRa said...


Didn't look at the ratio but HYG is trending up on the weekly 3LB and LQD reversed up last week. Why do I feel that GDP will be manipulated higher just to get the S&P above 1200.

from the last thread:

not very flattering!: Toss a coin and you can match most of the "best and brightest."(according to this site).

There is a decade breakdown (2000's) of R.P. as well as others, in fairness the authors ignore RP bullish calls in the early 80's.
