Friendly Reminder to Avoid Margin Clerks

If you will notice, this website focuses on downside risk to any trades taken. Traders are in the business of losing, in some respects. And it comes down to how well you handle the inevitable losses.

Let's Get a Handle on This Wintry Weather

After selling UGAZ (triple-long natural gas ETF) yesterday for a nice win, I am back to stalking natty for another long entry based on the straight-up UNG ETF chart, seen below on the 30-minute timeframe.

Late Night Strategy for Thursday

With the weak reaction to the Fed Minutes on Wednesday, I am now interested again in shorting bonds. Looking at the TLT ETF for Treasuries, below on the daily timeframe, I am going to likely play inverse ETF's TBT and/or TMV if TLT loses $118 below--You can see the well-defined base for a potential breakdown with more selling.
