Hello Mayumi.



YESTERDAY: December 20


We have been exhibiting a trend of jumping higher on the open, and then sitting. Once the market gets through its opening-rotation after the first couple minutes, the day is essentially over. Friday we saw the SPX close higher by $15.85, but the only way to profit from this was to come in long deltas from the previous day.

The biggest surprises (for me) are:

AMD – This stock just keeps running 2 – 4% higher every day.

TSLA – This stock is at 405.59 and strong.

SKEW – The skew in the market has been hit harder than even the VIX.


TODAY: December 23

We are in a dangerous period of time the next few trading days. Typically, the market runs higher by a little bit each day, and is very quiet. Yet, any surprise news and a market drop can be fast and over-extended to the downside as traders are missing from the pits. Many big traders are taking the whole week off, and leaving the heavy lifting to the less experienced JV team.


2019: MUCH HIGHER FROM HERE (2506.85 SPX) – (prediction made January 2, 2019) but not a straight line, and not without some volatility. Trump WILL get his wall. China will buckle and blink first. The Fed will go back on their medication, and spend time thinking about what they say (before saying it).

ARE ANY OF THESE COMING TRUE? Look at the exact words I said about “blinking first” a year ago.
