If this still belongs to you then my advice is put it in cold storage if you want to use it in future. It bears no relation whatsoever to the forum I started reading some years ago. Now it has been taken over by one or more foul mouthed egotists who have slowly ,but surely driven away long time posters.
Wish you well.

it is quite strange that you would not take a look - perhaps, 5mn every month, or is it too much? - to ensure all is well in a website that bears your trade name and reputation

for my part i am never returning - it is actually not because of the trolls but IPA once mentioned my 'imaginary' life and i realise i was a fool to use your forum as a diary - unnecessary personal information beyond the trading scope

my mistake and your loss, because markets are about to get 'real' again, and noone should waste their time trying to help others navigate difficult markets when they get mocked relentlessly otherwise

Xi and Trump both locked in.

Correct order from here is sell-off -> soften stance on both sides -> trade deal -> rally

The sell off needs to happen first, there's just no reason for anyone to back down now and Trump sees tariffs as net positive carry.

Also commentators I follow that were calling for a retest of the lows in Jan/Feb are now calling for new ATHs.

My 2 cents

What is Trump's playbook?
1) Let mkt crack -30%, force JPow to cut, reflate into election?
2) Bulldog his way into IP theft concessions no matter what mtks are doing?

I would love to choose #2 but I'm leaning towards #1.

Looks like we are getting some real mkts back and Nico's views are being substantiated.
SPX went nowhere in the past year; AUDUSD, USDJPY, DXY, Copper, US10y, 10y bund - they do not seem to be buying risk on.

Would love LB, Nico, Cbus, IPA, and the rest of the wise guys to share their views. It's getting interesting now!

USDJPY, USDKRW are looking technically oversold.

China retaliatory actions could trigger the next dip in US oil first followed by equities.

Nasdaq should target 200DMA in the short term. Markets are following perfect distribution pattern of lower highs and lower lows. TSLA and GOOG charts are the keys to track markets which are being distributed to RH millennials.

Morning MM!

LB found that last week required considerable intestinal fortitude, not in having to deal with trolls, but to cope with the Trump/Mnuchin market manipulation. Nevertheless, by maintaining a single minded focus on the price action, tuning out the tweets and keeping the sound down on the TV we were able to maintain the following positions we mentioned at the beginning of May: Long VIX calls, Short USDJPY, Short IWM. Sentiment and positioning extremes in volatility seemed to us to continue to dictate a reasonable risk/reward ratio, and some understanding of Trump's bluster and bluff style of negotiation suggested to us that the trade war would heat up.

As of this morning the most powerful force in the market will be algorithmic trading. We are getting past the point where the machines have to go full short and sell RUT, and closing in on the point where they flip to selling Spoos. We have also been waiting for significant buying of JPY, as the really large panic sell-offs in US equities are invariably accompanied by a 1-2¥ surge in USDJPY, and that moment seems to have finally arrived. As of the time of writing, crude oil is firm, but when crude finally tops out and sells off in synchrony with every other risk asset, there will be another wave of selling in the energy and materials sector. We are guessing that starts in the afternoon, when widespread deleveraging is already underway.

Today could get fairly ugly for Friday's more optimistic punters, he said cheerfully. This has the makings of a 3-5% down day, which would be a Black Monday for some of the relative noobs in this market, and that is going to cause significant dislocation. In particular, some of the vol sellers may find themselves in a spot of bother this week.

Right now, keep an eye on FX, the nightmare scenario for most longs is if DXY and JPY start to rally in tandem in mid-week as a huge pile of commodity/USD and EM/JPY carry trades are unwound; for today, I think we are just going to watch USDJPY draw out a great big long red candle. Enjoy!

Spoos gap down 50 and there was almost no bounce at 9.45; dip buyers conspicuously absent.

Welcome to the bear's lair, Friday buyers. This will be something new for many, but it was a way of life in 2008-9. It's not a lot of fun for 12 yo HFMs, but you may need to get used to it for a bit. The machine that sells first today, sells best ;-)

1:36pm…. we are getting a very intimate look at SPX 2800 here, and below that it is like the dark side of the moon for the machines. From here I can peek at RUT 1500 as well.

VIX is 21, likely to be lower by the close. MM has often pointed to the opportunity created at extraordinarily high levels of vol - e.g. VIX ≥ 30 - as a place to stop selling and start to think about buying. That may be a few days and many spoos away.

Crude oil has turned down but isn't melting down yet. If and when that happens, say on Wednesday, then HY credit is going to go and that is going to trigger another wave of selling in equities (energy, financials). Note how HY gapped down a chunk today and hasn't budged. [we are short HYG].

The last two hours of trading are going to be interesting, watch for USDJPY 109 and SPX 2800 as a possible trap door to another air pocket below. Those levels may hold today, but we are inclined to think that forced deleveraging and program selling is going to take out those weak support levels before long.

Getting paranoid in my dotage.

But two of an enormous city did survive,
And they were enemies: they met beside
The dying embers of an altar-place
Where had been heap'd a mass of holy things
For an unholy usage; they rak'd up,
And shivering scrap'd with their cold skeleton hands
The feeble ashes, and their feeble breath
Blew for a little life, and made a flame
Which was a mockery;

Suffice to say we don’t want the undead trolls to draw breath once more...

Let's see where this ends up in the bigger order of things 2575 is not that far away. Trying to get around this electoral cycle. Triple top, or one more high to go? Defending is grueling but we have max one more year and covered puts may offer a break. We live on our boat from early April to early November - the treacherous weather in the Aegean is a perfect distraction from markets. Holding on. Good luck.

Can we please, please, PLEASE get back to the topic we are supposed to pontificate about? It's not that we mind ad hominem attacks or insults, and Lord knows we receive enough of them, but it takes up so much cortical space and then what part of your brain is left for trading? ;-) The amygdala? Unless you are 12yo algos? I am guessing that algos don't quote Byron...

[Do algos have an amygdala? Do algos have chat rooms or a MacroAlgo blog where they slag each other off?: "You have a small CPU". "You are coded in FORTRAN". "You like to exchange data with other machines" "Your disk is floppy" "You still run DOS" "You use your mamas 16-bit 80286"...etc...].

Right, markets. We warned on Monday that we might see a further dive on Wednesday especially if oil turns downwards. We have now had the widely anticipated Turnaround Tuesday/Last Exit Rally.

This morning we got China IP and retail, which were "disappointing" (and of course fake, but that's another story). One can assume that the real data are probably negative or close to zero, hence the fairly obvious fingerprints of PBoC liquidity injection yesterday. More significantly, US retail sales (probably not fake, as of this moment in time) were negative. In response to the latter, bond yields are diving and USDJPY is down again.

It is possible that today will see a re-test of Monday's SPX 2800 and USDJPY 109. If the crude oil price does finally give way today on supply/demand concerns, as it sometimes does seasonally when cooler winter/spring weather finally (!!) comes to an end, then we may see those support levels break today or tomorrow, as another sector of the equity market takes a bath.

Hey traders. Its Monday morning here on the Brisbane desk and I'm putting the weekly trade recommendation out here in this blog for you to enjoy.

Trade of the Week.

She will being doing her best to throw you in jail or out onto the street, or spread some disgusting rumour in hope of annihilation .

Why?
Because she is right...she has always been right...I think of her as a second class citizen, and anyone is free to do so...but me.

The isolation, the homeless shelters, the jail cells, the entrapments....are all schemes to elevate her ego and status above one solitary human being that won't give her the time of day. She"s the boss.

She has saved me 16 years of falsehood marriage in Sydney, and saved me from being the one thing I have never wanted to be ...a piggbank for the Sydney lowlifes.

This weeks trading recommendation is a bit different this week guys. I say without shame that the majority of past weekly recommendations over the last 16 years my recommendation has been to get up each day and do some training and then lay in bed and watch tv all day. However, amps is all fired up again as Sydney is nothing but a past memory of long days in front of the tv...that is all.

So with that. Amps recommendation this week is the following:

Never enter a trade with the houses on wall street and in the city of london...there much worse!

Best description of equity market action this year: “de-risking on worsening macro inputs, then grinding back higher on mechanical factors.”

ED COT (commercial hedgers especially) reports have been warning about this for quite awhile and a main component of why I have been so bearish equities starting Feb of 2018.

If the bond market is the dog and equities merely the tail then Eurodollar futures are the Dogcatcher.

Unfortunately, as a vanilla HNW manager, I don’t get to be all super-duper fancy trader guy anymore. Long timeframes, don’t go backwards and love liquidity.

It truly pains me to say it, but capitalism is dead and buried. When a country has to choose between default and debauching the currency, guess which one they choose 99% of the time. Closed my EURUSD trade today. I’m afraid this payroll report will start the beginning of the beginning of the end for USD. Gotta sterilize the debt somehow or face oblivion. Plaza Accords Part Deux?

Anon (from June 4, 2019 at 8:32 PM) here: buy some dips

Sp we're now up +4.50% on the week (see SPY weekly gain). Did you make more? I doubt it.

So easy to make money with POTUS. If you guys aren't exceeding +20% pa, just buy & hold equities. Stop this sill macro drivel that you persist in - let's face it none of you can outperform the SP500 index. And no insults please, you will thank me in 10-15 years when you have increased your net worth 200-300%.

yep, I thank you slime. your continuous jibes over the last 16 years of this market bull run of how this trader will never again trust analysts opinions and public sentiment again after have experienced your trading paradigm was spot on but not to the effect you hoped.

I won't be hiding in my room trading world probabilities of future events due to be rocked by past market cycles that you have so kindly delivered upon me. No...I don't operate that way. But I do know going forward ...I don't owe the US or UK one fucking thing! not one. You can deposit all the gold from fort knox to the bank of england tomorrow into my bank account ... I don't owe any of them one fucking thing...and its not because i have been shell shocked by each market... that you slime would love to instill within me for future suffering of confidence in operability in my public and private trading accounts going forward...far from it! All you have done is show me how to keep my alpha bets encrypted going forward. I will not be seeding any potential superannuation funds in either country going forward...my alpha bets are going to be too awesome to worry about social classes, religion and old school ties...

I don't care , slime & co how many markets and public superannuations fund you trip up for me...the US & UK are irrelevant. I only care about my alpha bets. While I am free and alive and able to seek out those alpha bets ... I am a happy person to be around. You failed losers!

Let's give a shout out to a special guy that has put a couple noughts single handedly on the end of team macro's christmas bonus. The world's most frustrated gangster...RUSTY!!!

He method acts everyday. knows them all. hey rusty... how's your five eight jamie?

Yeah yeah yeah...will always be rich, had and will have a collection of women and all the little toys that go with it. But next time guys your all on his boat make sure to spot him lapse into his soul searching self moments that have him willing to give you and all of those toys away to have his mental youth again...your all toys.

As for you rusty...yeah yeah yeah...the women, the money , the fame, the blah blah blah...means all nothing done it , because you have the frustrated gangster disease. It hurts done it. Its painful each day when you wake up and know you have more than 99% of everyone in world and still can't be the man you want to be. Live with it rusty...live it up the north coast away from those that don't give a fuck.

Listen guys...I really appreciate all your tips...but here is a dream trade for you that I have had since the start of the the gulf war in 1990 when my family left the house to me as they travelled down south on a family working holiday , and I went to the local betting shop and backed the same jockey to win four races on one card, and his brother at a corresponding meeting to win a double. Loaded up...and traveled down to melbourne for the racing carnival. It was at this point that I hit the brakes.

The macro man's ((flamingo)) redux trade.

You get to wake up each day and work 10 hours shifts daily , weekly and monthly until you find a model that creates alpha.

You then disappear from the face of the planet.

Your model is handed over to the limited share holders.

Life goes on.

Decades and centuries of family and business and old school ties won't even know you existed after a couple years. Anyone that does misses you...will be given a share of what you leave behind and life goes.

Its 2019...and I'm lucky to still be here...my days are sweet knowing what would have been.

Same goes with whoever ends up with other brides to be they had lined up in place...bit like the old days when they used to switch the greyhounds in the kenneling shed after weigh in. Those poor dogs...fairdukim...sitting in the car all day...and then in flash... the old switcheroo.. and you find yourself in the starting box in field with no hopers. Amps is free a trader now...he doesn't trade for HK or JPN or US or UK or EU. Amps is going to run rampant down south with the footy...no betting shop spys, no elite mf, no ball and chain.

Listen , anonymous. I'm trying to promote a good cause here, and your trolling me. I hear arky is scheduled next year to hold the biggest and best arky party foundation event ever in london. Yep...I hear it will be within the confines of her majesty's pleasure. I'm sure her majesty has seen it all in her time as her blood has been noted to enjoy a good gamble...but arky is taking london to another level of entrepreneurship. His holding a charity auction at her majesty's confines next year that will entail the auction of a number of number plates to institutional houses that wish to bid to help a good cause. From the number plates the charity event will proceed to auction away a handful of "jumping classes" in the jumping castle that will be inflated to a precise air pressure level that ensures that you bounce from one side of the wall to the other without attending to gravity. It's going to be the pride of all london's elite events next year and your having a go at me...

If USDHKD keeps up it's ability to predict market activity roughly 3 weeks in advance, it's screaming for a major macro move starting next week after the g20. And it's not indicating anything positive.

If this holds true, then Semi's + cyclicals are about to get crushed here. I've made a lot of money in the last 1-2 years being periodically very bearish on semiconductors, and the setup here after the Micron "beat" looks very strong for a short entry at the end of this week.

Interestingly, the technicals for a lot of the cyclical sectors seem to line up with the date being shown by the USDHKD pair. Lots of rising wedges that would force a resolution one way or another around that time.

Let's be frank Trump has made the Fed his pussy. Worse really, he's made them irrelevant. Rate cut ,who needs the Fed when he can just rattle the markets, arsesmack global trade growth and force rate expectation down which is just what he's done.The market is now all about him. The best performing asset groups in my portfolio this year all benefitted from him and his contentious approach to, let's just call it the rest of the world, because it's easier to mention the few he hasn't rattled sabres with. So thank you Donald and please let me know what you are going to do next. I wouldn't be surprised if immediately he trum(pets) G20 success and if he does then I'll in for some mean reversion on safe haven and liquidity holdings. The cyclicals and other higher risk stuff would go up of course. Just reverse all that if he acts like nothings happening any time soon. From a macro viewpoint there's not much to say that doesn't just lead straight back to Trump.

It comes with sad news today that amps has officially retired from racing in all areas of the code. There will be no future beers with turf punters. He has other exciting endeavours to pursue and racing is old ground that was kind to him in its day but is old ground that should be left behind to ponder on the good times sometimes. He leaves racing in the venerable hands of the waterhouse and singleton families that will continue to lead australian racing by way of example of how a racetracks betting ring represents a classless society where first among equals is discarded for the personal attribute of putting your money where your mouth is. In that regard , we admit, they have big shoes to fill...but we can say with confidence that both families have long track records that have signified to you punters out there that you will be in solid hands. Good luck to all of you punters.

It comes with sad news today from silverwater jail that amps has closed his hedge fund and will not be taking seed money from wall street and the city of london. Amps would like to thank would be investors for their support but he has chosen to pursue other endeavours that don't require the intermingling of the " conglomerate " of industries that are required within the lifestyle of investing for the super wealthy. He also wishes not to participant with the US and UK banks in a political environment that indoctrinates the willing and transforms those into everyday machine men. The closure of the fund will allow amps to remain living a comfortable and free life that is essential for creating new ideas and finding and edge in other fields of play. We thank you for your understanding and wish you investors good luck.

It comes as a shock to australian tax payers today that millions of taxpayers dollars were squandered in an investigation by the australian totalitarian squad into the recently retired horse racing punter and hedge fund trader amps over the course of many years. News limited has obtain a leaked memo from an internal investigation that was recently conducted into allegations of greed and pressures of team conformity by a motley crew of eastern suburbs and melbourne gongsters, racing identities, property developers, media magnates, hedge fund traders and members of the australian totalitarian squad. Details within the memo outlined that for years some members collaborated to provide a public " shell " veneer around amps in a form that would abrogate his ability to freely trade and conduct his business. The memo sets out further details of how over many years false allegations and trumped up investigations were created to decimate amps personal and business life in the hope that the motley crew would take over amps intellectual property rights to further make profits. An anonymous source told news reporters that the internal investigation was only instigated due to the recent romantic affairs within the motley crew that had shifted the teams goal from financial profit and amps elimination to solely targeting amps for elimination. Further sources that newslimited obtain for the story but spoke with anonymity all suggested that once the group of hedge fund traders got involved within the motley crew that affairs and personal vendettas induced more funding and thereby more willing participants into the team to carry out an attack on amps life. Upon repeated failures detailed within the memo it was decided by the motley crew to induce amps to a friendly foreign country upon where he and his work would be monitored and if need be targeted for further attacks without the australian authoritarian squad service due to their previous incapabilities , and this would allow the motley crew to disavow and knowledge of the attack. The australian authoritarian squad refused to make comment on the story but news limited's daily clairvoyant made a statement declaring that getting to tomorrow is a lucky day and never get married to anyone you don't fully know.

Along with that...we will touch on american and england financial dynasties that lust for more porridge.

Dear macro man commentators,

We have to inform our loyal colleagues that since our last post when notifying fans that we will be changing our service format that a number of people have queried as to why. Well, we hate to inform you but amps haters have won the day. Late last week , the year before last and the one next year, amps came out and released his medical certificate since being involved in the eastern suburbs gongster and the totalitarian squad catch and release program. He has no use for trading large capital or merchant investment banking as he has a undisclosed disease and prostate cancer that has restricted his ability to sperm offspring. With these results, amps has decided he doesn't need to commit to the required responsibility that such employment requires, and has decided to trade the market through the day to day patterns that he sees consistently by quantifying these profitable situations and coin money for himself and his personal quant and literally tell (( wall street and the city of london)) to go fuck themselves , in person , if need be.

We thank you everyone one you for your patience and understanding of amps erratic and sometimes nonsensical ramblings here in the macro man space , but we do hope you understand that amps needs space and privacy at this time as he pursues the only passion left in life. the punt.
