    • markrpat: In other words, while the magic of FED wednesdays is good theatre - contrarion thinkers park their cars near the exit.

    • markrpat: Mindless media, jabbering politicians, and limited power of FED. Real power is held by those that can use it.

            $SPY rally into close. Going to be prepared for a possible Tuesday rug pull if we climb higher tomorrow morning. No predictions though.

                        $UVXY got in today @ 27, missed my opportunity to get out @ 28 on one-minute bull pennant breakdown. Shucks. Max position again.

                                        $TBT got out of my position. Draghi spoke, DAX getting closer to 9000 level, that's a perceived risk IMHO.
