What’s happening this week and why?

Earnings, Fed speakers, Comey getting fired

French Elections ended with communist party winning and didn’t matter

VIX 24 year low !!!!

What is it that causes a 24 yr low?

          IS it complacency?=no fear, overly bullish expectations, total passiveness, lack concern for risk

I believe the Fed is now purchasing securities in an index form like they do over in Europe, Market Friendly reforms

Are all central banks backstopping the reserve currency = US Dollar



DIS Down $3 after hours and let’s look at my position to measure the “hurt”

I could expect an 8500 to 10K drop in accounts

Technically speaking it can go down to the 104 horizontal level  of support or the $102.50 200 SMA

I’m Excited because I still have the right to sell at 115 and 600 shares at 113

Let’s do the math

On 1000 shares I can sell at $115 for $115,000 and now buy back in at $103

115000/103 = 1, 116.5 shares or in other terms I just picked up 100 shares without having to call and ask for more money to be put into the account so I can dollar cost average.


Where will our market end this week?

COMP – Overbought bullish
