Yet more positive comments from Trump on trade with the EU. Should finish the day bullish, if not, certainly by tomorrow and possibly the remainder of the week. Deciding whether to get out around 29,600 or hold...
i have three positions 29200, 29260, 29280... tp: 29400.. if tp hit gonna be equivalent to 3 months salary...

edit one last one 29324..... if tp hit 4 month salary... i believe in crazy hour we will hit it..

Today served as a reminder.

Earlier I said price may touch 29.1k area with a little volatility remaining, I jumped in and low and behold what happens.

It doesn’t matter what story there is, volatility always switches from high to low, low to high.

One person gets a bit of Chinese flu and there you go. Vol is near its limit now and bullishness will resume soon.

My sensibility will come back as well as my old saying ‘never catch a falling knife’.

Doesnt matter too much anyhow, I am sure we are all holding.

Uh, I would lower the risk if I were you...trend is up, no discussion but every trend needs healthy corrections. We might get new ath tomorrow, who knows...but daily looks like it wants little bit lower.
Why does price go lower....to find buyers, that's all...and bulls want discounted prices

Here is what I'm looking, and this is very doable this week...personally would prefer longs around 28900

Market order set to go long around 29000 big round number, with one additional long set above 28900, if it gets that low.
If triggered will build a larger position next week, adding from there if/when in profit.

Market is being a little odd.

It hasn’t responded positively to the US-French tax news. Nor the fact that Brexit has been agreed in parliament which should have been a shot in the arm for equities. That’s a worry.

I mentioned the big injection of puts on the options market previously. Hmm.

29.1k is holding for now. We need trump to send a positive tweet. The market is awaiting news.

{quote} Itís Martin Luther King day (20th Jan) and I thought itís over now? Market just opened higher from what I can see. Iíve reloaded, not worried about Xmas style thin liquidity. Hope I am not wrong but I expect strong bullishness!
mea culpa. youīre right. holding all longs, again a massive position - and again a deep-pocket game. not worried so far.

dcavar Jan 23, 2020 9:37am | Post# 45634

PO long 28900 +/-
but looking 3300 on spx

no margin call @29.100? so you have increased collateral. wish you luck!

Yep... ...dow account .... transferred funds ... as you said need deep pockets... total lots 295 in play spread over 28930-29312... my gold account profits were transferred to this one..... i believe now margin call is somewhere 28700...

fyi... even after that my initial deposit is still locked and safe...

i see. all-in play. canīt criticise cause iīve done that end of 2019 also, outcome was my biggest win ever and most important: scenario is intact. 28.700 should be deep enough. good luck!
