Charts I’m Watching: Aug 12, 2013

The eminis are flirting with danger this morning, having ducked below a key channel midline (dashed, purple) but bouncing off a smaller channel bottom and another channel midline (dashed, white) near a .786 (1674.15) for a Gartley Pattern completion. The dollar is threatening to break out of the falling wedge…. And, the SPX is set … continue reading →

Update on AAPL: Jul 31, 2013

It’s not often I get the chance to plug a future competitor.  As some of you know, my son Kyle is helping me out this summer.  He will graduate in December with an Economics major and Personal Financial Planning minor from Texas Tech University in lovely Lubbock, TX. In addition to performing many rather thankless … continue reading →

Update on NKD: May 29, 2013

While the Nikkei hasn’t officially been on our hit list, it’s certainly been fascinating to watch.  Today, it earned its very own page on pebblewriter.com. Late last night (early this morning?) I updated the USDJPY [HERE] which was at a critical point in its own rally to the moon.  It recently broke down through the … continue reading →

Update on Gold: May 15, 2013

Our last update [Apr 15] devoted to gold came in the midst of a huge meltdown.  Gold had lost channel support, horizontal support at the psychologically important level of 1500 and was dropping like a rock through 1335. Never one to shy away from an opportunity to embarrass myself, I gave my best guess: we … continue reading →

Charts I’m Watching: May 10, 2013

The market bounced back a little into the close yesterday, and recovered further overnight.  ES retraced a Fibonacci .886 of the initial plunge, and is hanging in the small channel established over the past week. We shorted SPX at 1635 yesterday, but weren’t sure whether or not the upside was completely done. This morning, there’s … continue reading →

Anticipation

It certainly looks like we’re almost there. The eminis seem to be already there… The EURUSD is clinging by its fingernails… The dollar looks ready to rumble… The USDJPY is making a bid for an IH&S, but has run smack dab into that yellow channel midline again…moment of truth for the yen… This morning’s dip … continue reading →

Charts I’m Watching: Apr 22, 2013

Looks like we’re getting some follow-through this morning on Friday’s technical rally.  But, this doesn’t appear to be one worth chasing unless it can push up strongly through 1560. I’ll play along on the opening with an interim long position, with tight stops for the fizzle that could come quite quickly.  If 1560 is exceeded, … continue reading →

Charts I’m Watching: Apr 16, 2013

We’re set to get a nice bounce here at the bottom of the purple channel — as revised in last night’s last post. Based on where the futures are pointing, I’m not sure whether it will have legs or not.  But, I’m inclined to play along on the upside, but with relatively tight stops in … continue reading →
