Is the Hourly Chart Count Basie? 10/13/21

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Here's the 2 hour bar chart. While we still have an hourly bear market, the 5 day cycle count and pattern of the past two weeks certainly looks base-y. The levels to watch on the downside are 4327 and 4309. Break those and we could have a bear party. 


Here's the one hour bar look. Dare I say it looks bullish?



Bulls need to clear 4375 and 4400 to give this Count Basie some upside rhythm. 



This is just the intraday look. For more: Head and Shoulders Above

I was puzzled last night about  why they are still paying down Bills. Its because the debt ceiling bill was just passed last night by the House.  It needs Biden's signature, then we will see.

All they've done is to kick the can into December. It will be interesting to see if the market buckles under $240 billion a month in borrowing over the next 2 months. https://liquiditytrader.com/index.php/2021/10/07/booming-tax-revenues-overheating-risk-and-the-real-crisis-starts-now/

Missed all the "fun" of the last couple days. Now ensconced into PullMyFinger Capital's Latin American H.Q. office/condo concrete box. Just dodged Hurricane Pamela when it took a right turn toward the mainland, so not trading much yet this week. You will have to rely on someone else for your contrarian trading signals. 🙂

Looking at NQ charts this morning, I think I might be reduced to trading a 4 minute chart when I do have time to watch mr. market. This churn is making me seasick.

Keep 'em down!

I have arrived in Szczecin. Say that fast 3 times. So far, I'm underwhelmed. 

pronounced Shchetseen. I know. Doesn't help. 

Not much happening here, either. 


But the pattern now is hyper bullish. But only if they clear 4360 in the next couple of hours.

Arc de Triomphes have been working well today. Here's the Double Menorrah formation on the 8M NQ. 

Done trading for the day. Hopefully see y'all tomorrow, or maybe Friday!

Excellent! Rarely seen. 

By the way. It's starting. $65 billion in net new T-bills announced to settle next week. Let the RRP slush fund drawdowns begin.

(I know it's supposed to be proprietary, but today's action was the most-boring in the last 3,000 years... prior, there was a period of surplus rains & related wheat production and the price of the latter didn't budge for 27 years. That was the last time my proprietary stuff triggered. And if you know your Pharaonic history, then you know what Aakheperre - and lo! the entire ancient world - suffered the next day....)
