LIFE IN THE CENTRAL BANK CASINO

“Normal is what some FED Twit says is normal … nothing else!”

Remember in the movie “Casino”, where the mob guy just walks into the cage 
and picks up the briefcase full of skimmed cash, and everybody including 
security just ignores him? … like he’s invisible … and then he walks out, goes 
to the airport, and takes a private plane back to Kansas City, where the cash is 
split up. “What’s any different from the “central banker cabal” and what we call 
[snicker snicker, snort snort] markets”?

Today is a semi Holiday, and that means very little market movement 
overnight and into the U.S. session … “everybody, including Pols & 
Apparatchiks of all stripes, are too busy virtue signaling over a War that ended 
100 years ago yesterday at the 11th hour, and which BTW, we are still struggling 
with the ramifications … that everybody back then got it totally wrong, initiated a 
“solution” that started WWII a generation later, and has solved literally nothing 
over a 100 year period, should come as no surprise to anybody with any critical 
thinking skills … but alas, look at the pretty wreaths they lay down, cuz that’s all 
that matters now … don’t look behind the complete fuck ups, cuz that might just 
bring your mind to present day, and as we all know cuz STFU and sit down”.

So, don’t look for markets to move today … gold a complete nightmare of 
dealer bullshit, and I’d be surprised if New York had a $3 range … they’ll 
start the manipulation game again tomorrow, unless of course we got some 
nasty surprises in store for us today, which I doubt. Our favorite pet yellow 
rock, for its part, slammed lower by a FED hellbent on higher interest rates & 
a hoped for worldwide depression, and the dollar merrily steps higher, 
especially against the EM basket … USDCNH back above 6.9600 and 
threatening 7.0000 … EURUSD & GBPUSD getting “monkey hammered”, all 
over the 28th month and running “shitshow circus” a/k/a “Brexit” … FX 
having become the favorite “add to the mistress’s fund” markets as of late. The 
way things are shaping up, the only question I have for gold is, “how much of 
a “dead cat bounce” do we get today, tomorrow, or Wednesday, before the bullion 
banks slam it lower again below 1200”? … a test of that level is in the cards 
… it just looks like a complete “chopfest” at the moment, with a downside bias 
… and all that means of course is zero, cuz gold doesn’t go where its masters 
don’t want it to go first.

Markets today, are like avalanches in the mountains … they bleed slowly 
up/down, and then viciously spike in one direction or the other … and when 
the avalanche is over, everybody gets to pick the pieces up until the next time 
… short gamma players get obliterated, then there’s the obligatory moment 
of silence for the victims, and it’s on to the next squeeze … up/down, it makes 
little difference, cuz all that matters is the speed of the move … and that’s what 
wipes traders clean … “don’t talk to me about sigma, cuz in the world we live in 
now, sigma can go anywhere it wants to go, and leave you gasping for air as it 
crushes you in its tsunami wake”.

Turning to today’s gold market … bleeding lower, 7th day in a row, in 
conjunction with a stronger dollar that is killing EM, Euro, Cable, & Yuan 
… and that’s really the story … rallies look promising, then BOOM! … right 
in your face lower, and it’s been the same story for 7 days in a row.

Again today, nothing overnight and really nothing in New York … 9/10 of the 
last HR’s are lower and the market is $5 off the high set early … in other 
words, you can’t buy it and you can’t sell it without taking a big risk in terms 
of market movement … who the hell knows when the dealers sneak in some 
price spikes and gouge the trade … and on a semi Holiday with no volume and 
zero liquidity, why would anybody be trading this today?

So, no trades in the PAMM today … simply isn’t anything here to trade.

A few positions put on in the C2 options advisory in SPY … GLD is dead 
meat and not moving, and with volatility low, there isn’t anything to do in 
GLD until trading action picks up. Onto tomorrow mi amigos … I’m outta 
here early today … Onward & Upward!!

Have a great day everybody!!

SUNDAY UPDATE: GOLD STRUGGLES

“Through the veil of sickness, I sense some sarcasm in her voice!”

First some bookkeeping … directly below the 20 Day Range MA’s for gold 
… and as you can see, the blue New York MA just keeps going lower.

After I posted on Friday I crashed … I wake up from a dream where the dog is 
telling me, “hey ya know, it’d be a shame to leave all that deli roast beef in the 
“impenetrable bacon box”, what with your impending death and everything … ya 
know she isn’t gonna give me any of it after you assume room temperature … you 
need to get up, and let’s go have us some roast beef one last time”! … so, I get out 
of bed, stumble towards the kitchen with the dog in tow, and the Mrs. is up and 
says, “whoa cowboy, where you going to”?

“Some roast beef”!, I say … “what”? … “yea, the dog says he needs some before 
I die of man flu … cuz when I’m fish food, you’ll keep it all for yourself and he 
won’t get any” … “oh, is that what he says does he”? … “yea, he was tellin’ me, 
so I got up”. And like a prisoner who has escaped his cell, I get led back to bed 
after the dog gets some roast beef … where’s the dog, I don’t see him … “the 
Mrs. & I are bestest of pals, now that she gave me some roast beef PLUS cheese, 
PLUS a piece of bacon … we’ll be hangin’ out watchin some movie, you go back 
to bed now … good luck … adios … who was that guy anyway”? 

And while I’m not 100% yet, I don’t have that “I’m dyin’ over here!” 
mentality either, that I had on Friday … with TLC from the fam, I should be 
normal by March.

Well, gold and everything else got “monkey hammered” on Friday … and in 
case you hadn’t noticed, WTI crude oil did something it has never seen in its 
trading history, going back to the 80’s … it’s been down 10 days in a row, a 
new all time record. “If I didn’t know better, I’d think the idiots at the FED 
were trying to engineer a worldwide depression … yes, by all means, let’s raise 
rates some more”! On the horizon in a couple of weeks is the Trump - Xi 
meeting at the G20 in Argentina … not saying anything will come of it, but it 
has the potential of being an explosive market mover. Anyway, back to bed, 
and with a good night sleep, I should be OK tonight and tomorrow. 

Have a great rest of your weekend everybody!!

SOME DAYS I AM LEFT WONDERING, PART II

“How the Western world views gold!”

Someday it will matter … today doesn’t appear to be that day.

I dunno, wrap up every headline and fiscal insanity piece of news that supports 
gold, and then view it in the context of the “Great Bullion Wall of Selling” that 
goes on unabated every fucking day of the year by the bullion dealers … you’d 
have better luck dating a supermodel than seeing gold rally $1, and holding the 
rally … and yes, it really is that pathetic, today’s “monkey hammering” 
notwithstanding.

Today sees me with “man flu” … I swear, I’m dying … anyway, feel like shit 
and look worse … I haven’t traded today, simply cuz I can’t figure out which 
of the 3 screens in front of me is the real one … and from what the dog tells me, 
I’m not missing anything on the buy side of gold … so, I’m posting this and I’m 
back between the sheets.

I did some options trades on C2 today, but the position isn’t closed out, so 
unless you’re signed up for the service, you’ll have to wait. PAMM 
Spreadsheet which I thought was fixed, ain’t … in any event, when it’s fixed 
I’ll have it back up. Sunday night I’ll have a blog update … until then mi 
amigos … Onward & Upward!!

Have a great weekend everybody!!

SOME DAYS I AM LEFT WONDERING

“Oh Market Oracle! … Seer of all knowledge! … what is with markets!?”

Some days all I can do is shake my head, and wonder what is happening to 
markets … “scumbaggery” by the usual suspect, scumbag LP’s, vicious spikes 
from hell, both up & down with zero follow through, no ranges then “bigly & 
yuge” ranges, mystery ticks, the “slippage circus” infecting everything, and 
throw in the “Flying Wedge of Death” [FWD] practically every day now, and 
you’re looking at a better shot with a powerball ticket of winning … the 
turnarounds so quick & vicious, they happen in seconds.

“I have no idea how’d you explain markets today to younger college grads, cuz 
“trading” as I’ve always known it to be, doesn’t exist anymore … how do you 
explain the various manipulations, the dealer mystery ticks, etc., without 
sounding like you got wrapped in tinfoil last night”? Today a classic example of 
complete chaos, inside a relatively tight range … “yea, it’s FED interest rate day 
at 2 PM EST, so what? … depend on that for the FWD, and it’s a “death wish” 
waiting to happen, although getting caught by the dealers doesn’t feel much 
different. “Today’s low and today’s high perfect examples of manipulated dealer 
bullshit … these assholes should be in jail”.

What do you do with a market that refuses to trade? … me neither. Overnight 
saw zip, cuz of today’s non-event FED meeting, and so we not only end up with 
shit ranges in Asia & Europe, but again, New York is a complete joke … if 
you’re attempting to trade New York, good luck … simply a pile of shit 
masquerading as a trading market.

Earlier today, 3 algo buy signals … all 3 false flags, and the market shifted so 
fast to the downside, I felt like I was on the dealer yo-yo … PAMM down a few 
hundred bucks on the effort, and since then I’ve done zip, simply cuz there 
isn’t anything here but dealer “chop”.

On the C2 advisory options signals, I entered a new position in the SPY [SP500] 
… it looks good, and to see it in real time, you need to be signed up, otherwise 
you have to wait for the closed trade. Three months free, and I can’t offer a 
better deal than this … and nobody else is either.

We’ll see what tomorrow brings … I’m outta here … until tomorrow mi 
amigos … Onward & Upward!!

PAMM Spreadsheet was done last night, and today I went to open the file and 
it crashed … great, more time to figure this out … in any event, when it’s fixed 
I’ll have it back up.

Have a great day everybody!!
