Back bullish again

Brief update as I must begin Mother’s Day preparations.

Research is updated. Models are bullish heading into the second week of May.

I could pen some hard blog entry, about betting heavily against the NASDAQ early Monday, whilst having a few 100k doge, then covering the NASDAQ shorts mid Thursday and riding into the weekend a king.

What good would that do? None.

Man this doge coin really brings out people’s true character. We could all just be out here, vibing, cheering each-other’s success but there exists a strong desire to tear down the homies.

Even the doge community is sort of viscous.

It all reminds me while I extract fiat from the global equity complex: so I can build all sorts of greenhouses and grow lots of food and just be left alone. Too many rude humans.

Kindness is so easy.

With all that said, I am going to log off for now.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the sweet mums out their. If your daddy isn’t treating you right give your boy RAUL a call and I’ll take care you.

Bias Book Performance [11/17/2014-Present]:

Same story different week: Semiconductors choppy, Transports rally

Markets fluctuate between two states—balance and discovery.  Discovery is an explosive directional move and can last for months.  In theory, the longer the compression leading up to a break, the more order flow energy to push the discovery phase.

We are monitoring two instruments, the Nasdaq Transportation Index and the PHLX Semiconductor Index.

Transports made another big leg up in the discovery phase underway.

See below:

Semiconductors held range low and appear to be in balance.

      I build pretty much everything. Not that I enjoy building, I just need these things to be a self-sustaining human in the north.
