YES. I have skin in the game. I trade my own personal account. Sardine / Tuna / Billfish trades are for educational purposes only. I am NOT a futures broker and do not manage any accounts. It is my intent to show where trades may occur. What you do is up to you. You can follow my IDEAS to profit or loss. You determine trade size, when, where and how you trade. (CFTC) Futures is not for everyone. IT IS A VOLATILE, COMPLEX AND RISKY BUSINESS. Before you invest, know how much you can afford to lose.
NEWS / FUNDAMENTALS
Following the sharp pullback seen last Friday, stocks fluctuated over the course of the trading session on Monday but largely maintained a positive bias. The strength on Wall Street partly reflected a positive reaction to the latest efforts to address turmoil in the banking sector, including UBS Group's (UBS).
Yesterday's Technicial Review using
WB's Emini Clock and Wyckoff's Tape Reading Principles
Call it the "Shot Gun Wedding of UBS if you like for strength in the market today. I'd say, yesterday was the start of def con three but you won't see it for a while. I've been saying for months look for the spring equinox to be the demarkaction line for war.
And what happend? Well it actually started 5:24 pm that day. So China met with Russia to squeeze out America as the Petro Dollar. A riot on Spring Break. And National'ize the money globaly. And Fed One payment system.
Am I forgetting something? Let's see. Hum, Oh yes, Trump the first president to get indicated may be arrested. A least that's what Pence hopes. And Mrs O is looking to knock on the presidents door. Yes, I'd say spring equinox did not dissapoint yesterday… It was on page 5:
"The Spring Exuonix. Currently, we are in what's called the Winter phase. You see it every day or almost every day on page 3. Keep your eye on that date. If it's to go down it will do down on the other side just after that date. It's more to do with timing as opposed to temperature."
A lot of traders thought it'd be chop due to trading inside Friday's range; I thought: By my eye, I'm not really seeing that contagion spreading much further. They made the goal "Nationalize the Banking System" and raise awareness to how money works. Today we get to do it all over again. I'm still bullish."
A strong 2 hour rally took price up to the 11:30 am marker. Then a 40 minute decline takes out over half the the days' gain. Price regains the loss in 70 minutes. And then an hour and fifty minute dip is unable to take out even half of the previous rally. The day finishes strong at the highs. I'd say the day was bullish.

Offing Events: War in Ukraine is starting to gear up for full scale kinetic war. And now we have Leopards in the Fray. And now Jets (F-16's). Look for Spring Equnoix as demarkation war / no war. Cost of Inflation is raising $7 eggs and climbing. And the flow entering from Southern border.
Your edge is a series of trades, not just one trade or one day.
