Snippets from Thoughts on a Weekend Afternoon

Peter’s thoughts on the finished week and the week ahead | Issued most weekends


There are times when break-even trading is about the best I can expect. I am OK with break-even trading.  Treading water is way better than sinking. No matter if the markets are difficult or if I am making them difficult, if I can keep my capital intact eventually things will get back on track. Five of the last seven tranches I have closed have been for a loss. Over the years I have learned (sometimes reluctantly) to have patience for better times. Over-eagerness to get trading back on track can lead much deeper into a drawdown.

U.S. Dollar Index | June 12th report

The USDX is taking another attempt at the upper boundary of a massive rectangle. If this rectangle is completed, I will look for an opportunity to go long.

Corn | June 26th Report

The weekly continuation chart displays a clear possible H&S top, but the same pattern does not appear in the New Crop contracts. I will review the shorting opportunities in the Dec contract if and when the weekly chart H&S is completed.
