gemini....... 21 May – 21 June

Individuals born when the Sun was in this sign are considered Gemini individuals.

Gemini is considered a "masculine", positive (extrovert) sign.

Generally, Gemini is considered compatible with Libra,

goddess of beauty, VENUS. miss september, here†

For several days I warned of EURUSD buying support as detected by my indicators - and this has been confirmed by the recent Euro break out.

The proprietary indicators I use can identify trend changes before they occur.

Thanks for the effort on the freebie chartosis.

 A few threads back we were exhorted to come clean for bad deeds of the past.

 I junked you twice for foul language, as I found that was not to the standards that we should try for here. Now that I am reduced to the foul language myself I will junk myself for my rage of today.

 The best to you Mr. Bastard.

looking around, i'm not sure there are many available shares...

if based on growing scarcity... a short might not be the right bet.

I am watching BBC UK news as I write

 

They are lauding Obama and his financial reform bill that the Senate voted on favourably today.  I know BBC is an offshoot of the American main stream media but listening to this report is nauseating beyond belief.

and the next story is the BP oil spill and they respectfully report that BP underestimated the flow from the leaks, the BBC automatons then proceed to quote BP's new estimates.

And now we're in that portion of the day where three people throw futures contracts at each other for a while.

It's all rather relaxed.  I wonder if this will be the calmest part of the evening...

That S&P500 futures bustout below 1070 is supposed to be deeply concerning, but I cannot recall the article/thread that warned of such.

Can anyone help me out on that question?  Link, maybe?

As an alternative, with a few spare tires, a sack of potatoes, some MiracleGrow BloomBooster, and a marijuana grow lamp anyone can grow potatoes in a garage or basement...as long as electricity is available.

cheeky talk to me, please!

what makes them heat maps? b/c red color.

they are utterly beautiful, especially the S & P.

chart art†

you arrange the charts very artistically, like collages.

nice first pic. very nice.

heat maps, because of the colorization of price movement .

I'm not a pro, but i do spend north of 16 hrs a day/6-7 days a week with my head buried in this.

WHY?

colorization of price movement, that is very intriguing to me.

colorization of price movement, that's a beautiful phrase, actually.

tell me how, more please.

should i take off my shirt next. or would that be consider pornography.

Cheeky Bastard's picture

no, it would be ok, since there is a dude here with a vagina as an avatar [THE best avatar here]

colorization of price movement means that all negative movements are assigned to red, all positive to green, all neutral to grey. 

 


I'm not a pro, but i do spend north of 16 hrs a day/6-7 days a week with my head buried in this.

WHY?

 

for the lack of a better phrase; simplicity of it all +  a new area to explore.

When heatmaps are red we are becoming more communist.

When heatmaps are green we are becoming more capitalist.

The colors chosen (and what these colors represent) to represent advancing and declining is quite fitting.

CB, I posted this question in an earlier thread so sorry for the dup.  What's your call on EUR now.  We got the rally via today's short squeeze.  Is it sustainable?  Do you think we can get EUR 1.3 prior to JUN futures expiry?  Your input is greatly appreciated.
