Save a vet, fire an administrator $ES_F 1883 x 1862

Featured Breadth Chart of the Day:



Markets took a rest on the way up to oversold on the Zweig.  Today’s gap open should correct that.  Zweig needs a 2:1 on the NYSE a/d line today.  Yesterday it was a very, very neutral 1:1.

Comments and Levels for the Front (S&P 500 – E-mini futures) contract:

Short: 1883
Long:  1862


We are trapped short here in a bullish market.  That is a tough place to be.  For today, to make all our dreams come true, we want to see 1883 become a top and then fall apart down to the 1862 region.

The gap open today will be a challenge for that scenario.  If after 10:30am we continue to push higher, watch for a reach to the 1892 area.


On the MiM:


Tricked.  I was tricked yesterday into a short with an early read that was biased all to the sell side.  Perfect setup right?  Well, no, I lost a point on my ES trade and our chart takes a half point hit with a 3:20pm exit that lost the signal and eventually we saw the meter bounce back to the up side.

Parting Shot:

When it comes to our veterans, we all owe our freedoms to their sacrifices and should move to the back of the line.  That is how I feel.  My wife, on a recent cross country flight, gave up her precious aisle seat and took a middle seat to make room for two soldiers and their service dogs.  That is how it should be.

While the rest of us are selfishly trying to protect our healthcare, the VA hospital system continues to fall apart.  For those of us (me included) that argue that we want a government controlled healthcare system, our opponents can simply see how our current government controlled VA hospital has failed those that should be at the front of the line.  It is embarrassing, shameful and should shake us all with rage regardless of how we feel about Obamacare. Our veterans deserve better, much better.

While we spend a couple of million of dollars chasing down fugitive cows, the veterans in Pheonix find themselves being gamed in a two list system:  one list was sent to DC to show that the VA hospital had met the requirements while the real list revealed that  veterans had to wait up to a year to see a doctor.  Some patients actually passed away while waiting.  That is fraud and instead of allowing our government employees to take the fifth we need to see real charges, real jail time.  It blatant governmental arrogance (we also saw it in Governor Christie’s office with the bridge closing).  It is time we let the cows roam and fight green collar crime and see the jails hold some of these abusers. Being disciplined isn’t enough.

Just how I feel.

As always, we want your feedback!
