Crypto is the tail that wags the dog

Lads it’s real overcast here in the land of lakes and I went to a soccer game this morning. This resulted in my being forced to complete Sunday research during my low cognitive hours and boy has it been a grind.

But the research is the research and without it I cannot trade. Those are the rules. I should know. I wrote them. For me.


Anyhow this whole scary move lower we experienced in the markets, it started with crypto and if crypto has anything to say about it it is going to end with crypto.

Equities, being risk assets just like crypto, are lagging and following moves in the major internet tokens, namely ether.

That stated, it has been a strong weekend for the crypto currency markets and I expect that trend to carry into equities in the upcoming week.

I have attached my ego to the Twitter trade, in part due to some real banker looking Goldman Sachs banker slapping a sell rating on Twitter after I sized up.

I don’t like bankers. I used to be a corporate accountant. I’ve seen many a banker up close and they just make me want to make to kill.

The reality is I have no say in the outcome of this position. My life is in Jacked Dorsey’s beautiful hands.

Earnings are set for October the 26th, after the bell of course. This is when my fate shall be decided.

My price target is $109.

Okay. I am really not feeling the juices flowing so I’m gonna go eat some groceries and maybe pet some dogs.

Okay for now.

Here are last week’s bias trade results:

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

Semiconductors compressing and rallying

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 are still holding range.

See below:

Semiconductors broke their rising wedge last week and now appear to be in a balance formation.


Bias model is back to neutral after signaling Rose Colored Sunglasses [RCS] bearish last week. It was neutral the prior two weeks after being Rose Colored Sunglasses [RCS] bearish four weeks back after being neutral five reports back and Rose Colored Sunglasses bearish for the two consecutive weeks prior to that.

We had a Bunker Buster thirty one weeks ago.
