After spending many years in Wall Street and after making and losing millions of dollars I want to tell you this: it never was my thinking that made the big money for me. It was always my sitting. Got that? My sitting tight!

financials falling
Tech keeps going up, LOL
XLF has been sick for some time

NFLX, AMZN, FB, SQ, TSLA ignoring gravity... we have seen this movie before.

Dropbox +20%
HUYA/BILI/IQ +10~15%

ETSY +35% on raised outlook

Massive move in EURUSD, haven't seen a daily bearish reversal candle of this magnitude in a long time.
Tested the IHS neckline and failed hard, -250bps and counting...

EU approved tariffs on US goods.
US is going to slap tariffs on Chinese goods today.

Funny thing is, market doesn't care. We watch NFLX, hang out on FB/TWTR/SQ, search GOOG, buy from AMZN and use MSFT/AAPL/NVDA daily.
Digital economy, yo.

EU should ban FB/NFLX/MSFT/AAPL - then we are going to see reaction

Well I sold puts on AKS $5 for $0.20 credit on each of them. If anything I would be getting them for $4.80. I guess AKS is not much of little name to be part of the club?

I just looked at the top ones as a momentum play, www.barchart.com/stocks/quotes/AKS/competitors
ZEUS had been on my radar long before I relearned to spell tariff.

Good morning!
A sea of red across the board today, all hail King Dollar...
Stopped out of soybeans overnight @ 929 (-21). Knife-catching failure...
Not taking on any new trades today, good luck all!
