Trading Notes Updated

Trading Notes
Bulls make money, bears make money, and but PIGS get slaughtered" is an old Wall Street saying that warns traders against the danger of excessive greed. Disciplined traders always remove their own capital (initial investments) as fast as possible and risk only other people's money while watching TIME and trend energy. TIME is defined by cycles unique to each market, while energy is defined by DI and CAP in the Matrix.

U.S. #Dollar Index Review $UUP

US Dollar Review
Those that view the message of the market on daily basis are likely confused by trading noise. While trading noise contributes to the long-term trends, it does not define them. Human behavior tries to explain trading noise as a meaningful trend. This confuses the majority which, in turn, contributes to their role as bagholders of trend transitions.

The US Dollar Index's overall trend, revealed by trends of price, leverage, and time, are defined in the The Matrix for subscribers.

Subscriber Comments

Secondary and primary trend alignment defines a powerful multi-month decline. Traders follow these trends as long as alignment and TIME permit.

The growing number of bears should be focusing on the cycle of TIME. The secondary trend's cycle of TIME (BrST) defines an aging countertrend decline (see Matrix or Trading Notes). Declines often unexpectedly reverse when BrST > 2.0.The dollar is definitely setting up for rally in 2018. Few are prepared.

Coming Vulnerability of Cyrptocurrencies, Cash, Prepaid Vouchers #Bitcoin

News
An unnamed developer working to find exploitable vulnerabilities inadvertently took possession of hundreds of multi-signature wallets ranging in value between $150 to 300 million; multi-signature wallets usually contain large sums of money, since they are used primarily by startups or large groups looking to prevent any one member from running off with the money. Corrective actions intended to reverse the developers mistake eventually triggered a bug planted by hackers that recently stole $42 million froze the 'money'.  Frozen money cannot be retrieved.  Ethereum latest misstep, lets not forget about Bitcoin, supports Snowden's assertion that cyrptocurrencies - blockchain technology is vulnerable and safe haven investment for inexperience investors and criminals.  The focus on criminal activity, right or wrong, will intensify during the next economic and financial crisis. Legislation (Combating Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing, and Counterfeiting Act of 2017) against cryptocurrencies, cash, prepaid vouchers has been drafted not because these options are inherently evil but rather because they circumvent their control.  The legislation suggests they know a crisis is near. Why draft the bill when nobody is complaining?

Headline: Code bug freezes $150m of Ethereum crypto-cash

More than $150m (£115m) of a crypto-currency called Ethereum may have been permanently frozen after a code bug was accidentally triggered.

The bug was in code written by Parity Technologies to create digital wallets holding virtual coins - called Ether.

It let someone hunting for bugs become the joint owner of hundreds of wallets.

However, when the unidentified person tried to reverse their mistake they stopped the original owners of the wallets getting access too.

Reading the Tape #Bitcoin $AAPL, $AMZN, $ATR, $BABA, $EBAY, $GBTC, $NFLX, $NVDA, $TSLA

Reading the Tape
Traders read the tape - ticker tape in the old days to determine the recent buying and selling pressure. Here lies the importance of volume. It's easy to spot a large buyer or seller when the volume is light. Big buyers usually enter before big moves.

Jesse Livermore read the tape and never fought it.

Of course there is always a reason for fluctuations, but the tape does not concern itself with the why or wherefore. It doesn’t go into explanations. I didn’t ask the tape why when I was fourteen, and I don’t ask it today at forty…, Reminiscences of a Stock Operator.


While the tape, often triggered by price in reaction or anticipation of the new flow, is triggered by price, it's fueled by force. Volume is the domain of force. Traders/investors must learn to read the force behind the trend.

#Sentiment Review $SPX

Sentiment
The old American idiom of a day late and dollar short is an phrase easily applied to majority's ability to time (buy or sell) US stocks. The majority, influenced more by instinctual behavioral tendency of the individual to seek acceptance of an emotionally-driven crowd than act independently in the minority, views rising and falling stocks prices as bullish and bearish. This tendency that drives them chase when probabilities favor fading relegates the majority as the consistent bagholders of history's panics and trend changes.

Bull markets are born on pessimism, grow on skepticism, mature on optimism and die on euphoria.”, John Templeton

Subscriber Comments

The Sentiment Model current impulse has generated 16%, 34%, 0% annualized, maximum and minimum annualized returns since its inception (see Matrix). Caution towards stocks rises as the cycle of TIME expires - BuST exceeds 1, and sentiment towards stocks transitions from pessimism to optimism - WASo approaches 1. The cycle of TIME defines a bullish impulse that has yet to reach its cycle midpoint. In other words, the bulls control the market. Watch the majority turn bullish as the cycle of TIME expires.

Secondary and primary trend alignment defines a powerful and multi-month decline. Traders follow these trends as long as alignment and TIME permit. Weak retail stock trends have bearish implications for the global and domestic economy (see Intermarket Trends).
