ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE [ALMOST]

“Yup, I’m ready to start trading again!”

T – one week and counting … weather here has been awful the last 8 – 12 weeks … sure, we had two hurricanes within 2 weeks and both were CAT 5, but every day but 2 or 3 since August has seen rain, more rain, high humidity, and no wind off the ocean; all-in-all, a miserable place to be if you’re outside or don’t have AC.

And, as if everybody didn’t know this anyway, you can kiss the “high season” goodbye for 2017-2018, as most islands of note are complete train wrecks; there simply isn’t any place to stay that will be repaired in time and there is zero entertainment, as most high-end restaurants haven’t even started to repair or try and reopen. That leaves Micky D’s, KFC, burger King, Church’s, etc. to please your taste buds after you travel a thousand miles … “yea, this I gotta see”.

I turn on the internet today and what do I see? Some 1.3 million people in the Northeast U.S. don’t have power … “well, welcome to the club … hope your utility is better than the quasi-government graft & corruption cesspools that infect the Caribbean … not only will you get power back quickly, your grandkids will probably graduate from college before most of the islands get power back to the poor natives who live on them. Of course, the monied interests have power & AC, and all the other comforts, but 99% of the ex-Pats who live here spend money, and that’s what counts … you natives are just kept barely alive for your votes on election day … after that, see ya … until the next election of course”.

Time for some Sangria with an orange twist [medicinal purposes only, of course] … every time I sit back and think how things are run down here, it makes the blood vessels in my head want to burst it’s so corrupt and insane. I’m outta here … until tomorrow mi amigos!

Have a great day everybody!

ALMOST THERE, PART DEUX

“Government official in charge of Island electrical grid repair.”

What I know about modern telecommunications theory & practice you could put on the head of a pin and still have plenty of room left over … ditto for running an electric utility. Life has almost … almost … returned to normal for us here at trading central, in the dark depths of the Caribbean, where the “rich, carpet-bagging, ex-Pat Americans" [unless they live on the wrong side of the tracks with island natives] enjoy electricity, water, cell phone service, and almost 100% internet. Meanwhile, on other parts of the island, it’s still a “train wreck” with very little being done, while people still stand in line for 4 -7 hours in the hot sun with umbrellas to buy a bag of ice [and no, I’m not exaggerating].

“So, Sgt. Schultz, you think you can bypass the graft, bribery, corruption, and influence peddling that totally dominates the Caribbean from Bermuda to Puerto Rico [God, what a frickin’ mess], all the way down to Trinidad & Tobago”? Of course, the answer is a resounding NO, simply cuz the Oligarch families who run things wouldn’t dream of it; and why should they? Islanders keep returning the same corrupt Pols into power every election, so why should things change?

Today we had internet, except from about 3 A.M. to about 6 A.M.; this of course is the lowest load peak time for use on the island except for “dingbat” trader types [“wait … what”?], so if you’re going to take the internet down to add further cells for coverage, this is the time to do it. Put ‘em up during the day, test them at night, then add them to the system in the wee hours when everybody is asleep.

I have it on good authority, that the system will be 100% functional by next Tuesday night … “Ok, it is what it is, and we got no choice but to wait … if you had told me this the day after the destruction when I was looking at an island in total ruins, I would have put the probability of this happening at less than 1%, it was that bad. So, between 6 -7 weeks of down time is nothing short of a miracle. Seriously, hats off to private enterprise for responding and getting the phone system and internet going again”. Meanwhile, government diddles while most of the poor islanders suffer. This is an object lesson of the failings of government to provide necessary life services to anybody … and you Libtards want single payer health care with the government in charge … sorry, you are delusional. The dirty little secret is it never is the “services”; they want control over people’s lives … every facet, from cradle to grave.

"Scalper’s Algorithm" manual almost finished … will be done by the end of the week, and then released over in the “Download Links” section; I’ve had a full 6 weeks of uninterrupted research and writing on it, so if you’re looking for a “silver lining” from Hurricane Maria, this manual is it. More than likely, I would have needed 6 months if I were trading to do the job. Basically, there are 5 Non-Correlated markets [or in the case of GBPJPY, lightly correlated] I’ve identified to trade with the algorithm; the best is GBPUSD, followed by EURUSD, and finally USDCAD; if you want crosses, more volatile GBPJPY, and much less volatile [relatively speaking] EURGBP. All manual examples, for brevity, are with GBPUSD. From “The Tunnel Method”, there are some subtle but powerful differences, and there is an entirely new indicator; remember, this is for “scalping”, which I define as round turn trades made within an hour.

It’s nice to be “somewhat” back, and by next Tuesday night, “the guy who knows a guy, who knows another guy” says internet will be 100%. I tend to believe him for 3 reasons; 1) every day, connection times are growing longer and uninterrupted, 2) he’s always been “spot on” in the past about things like this, and 3) I’m clinging to the “hope rope” and want my internet back 24/7! 

Until tomorrow everybody, when I’ll be back with another post; “you shall no longer be in the wilderness, as I am back now”! [“Umm, why did the dog just roll over, put his paws over his eyes, and moan? Me neither … it’s a total mystery”!]

Have a great day everybody!

ALMOST THERE

Ok, mobile internet is getting better day by day ... should be trading within the next two weeks sometime. Hopefully the sooner the better, but reliability is the key now. Every day the connections get better and longer as they fully repair the mobile system. I'm getting internet via my phone acting as a "hotspot" to my laptop. Land based internet will be months away as everything here has to be rebuilt from the ground up, as almost 100% of the electrical & telecommunications infrastructure was destroyed by Hurricane Maria. I'd like to start trading this coming Monday, but I'll see what the system looks like before I start over the weekend.

I'm close to getting the new manual done; there are elements of it that take parts of "The Tunnel Method", but there are some new things as well. Mostly, it is for non-correlated markets, like GBPUSD, EURUSD, USDCAD, and lightly correlated markets in the crosses of EURGBP and GBPJPY. It should be done within the next 2 weeks, and I'll post it in the "cloud", over in the Download Links" section of the website in the right hand column.

Thanks again everybody for your well wishes on our surviving Hurricane Maria. It was like entering another dimension you don't ever want to find yourself in, but we were prepared. Again, thanks. Be back soon!

Have a great day everybody!

COMING BACK TO LIFE

Well, you post when you get the chance, no matter the time of day. Things are starting to come back to life slowly, and of course internet is the last priority on the list. I'm hoping I'll be able to start trading again within the next week or two at the latest.
I've been working on a new trading manual I'm calling "Scalpers Algorithm: The Final Solution". It is ideal for non-correlated markets like GBPUSD. More on this in future posts. Manual will be posted to the website download section as soon as regular Internet comes back. Thanks to everybody who sent well wishes for surviving a CAT 5 hurricane direct hit. Your thoughts and prayers were most appreciated. Thank you. Be back again soon.

I SURVIVED MARIA

Well, that was fun. Just got phone service back, and internet is spotty, and I'm expecting internet via mobile app within about a week. I will start trading then. This hurricane nightmare was worse than I ever thought it could be, but it's time to get back to business again. I only have a few minutes, so I'll post again soon. Onward & Upward. Have a great day everybody.
