Good look Iggi,

Had some days of painful drawn down, got out right near the top with strong profit. Looking for some more bites, we shall see...anything can happen. I'll be watching this for a while longs only.

I don't live and die by it but I do pay attention to which cycle the moon is in and what happens in markets. For ex: I've been watching E/A for some time, Saturday the 18th was a full moon. Sunday opened with a big gap down, also coincides that it's been bouncing off the relatively same resistance for a week. Is the market sending us a hint? Highly unlikely but watch your favorite pair as it relates to the moon cycles and tell me if you can't organize that chaos in a meaningful way. Completely useless in the trade but interesting thought. This is why rigid rules and hard SLs just don't help me trade, gotta find the feel. Last cocktail for me apparently.

Hello All My Loyal Followers........

Just returned from a 2 week road trip across the United States with my son for High School Graduation. Amazing!!!!!!!!! Lake Tahoe, Moab, Colorado. Great times! The markets seem to be behaving out of sorts and I am certainly out of sync. So I'll be taking a moment to get into the feel. Have had CJ trade open for weeks, it showed some signs of profit but hence has returned to it's lower trading range. I looked at trading Aussie tonight but despite strong employment numbers the Aussie continues on it's trend for dismal results. Trade 'till May then go away is in effect. Sidelines for OpenRoads!

WOW! These markets be extenuating. Hope everyone is safe. I myself am managing, called in late to my day job today. NFP should be interesting. Welcome back from summer vacation! School is about to be in session.

I'd say these markets are less than stable as of late. Levels and ranges are pressing beyond expectations and pivots are being ignored, Murrey is my guide right now. I have had to do some creative trading to keep my balance up, not something I can share in a chart, but you can see the chop in my equity curve.

I have much respect for the people here who can get a forum up and going and continue it. I know it takes dedication and commitment. It also takes an immense amount of emotional fortitude (balls) to post trade ideas, market commentary, predictions and results. In these markets where everything will happen it's a feat to undertake. Thankfully, I know nobody is listening so this is just a way for me to organize my thoughts. It was an intense summer in both trading and my personal life, Cross country road trip, bought a boat, took my son to college, got married. The YEN got bought in bulk Brexit trade got over done and China/Trump tweets sent shock waves. Things seem to be calming, my equity curve has lost it's choppiness and my personal life is back to the regular grind. So cheers to the bloggers and the traders who strive for greatness. I'll be more active until the end of November. Liquidity is the friend of this system.
