There’s an old saying about how the opposite of love isn’t hate………it’s apathy. I guess there’s some truth to that. I’m definitely feeling it now with respect to the equity “markets”. Years ago, I was madly in love with them. These days, it’s the opposite. But I’m not feeling angry. I’m feeling more like this.
Recent trading has kinda pissed me off. On the last day of the year, there was a false bullish breakout (left green tint) followed by a hard break of the triangle (magenta). So far, so good. But in the first trading day of 2018, the ES pushed right back into the triangle pattern and, bang, above it again. I’m typing this on Tuesday evening, so who knows what it’ll be doing by the time you read this. But as I sit here now, I tell ya, it’s a pisser.
