Kill the Angels - Weekly Trading Zones / Emini Futures Trading - Sunday April 18, 2010

(QQQQ)(DIA)(SPY)




Angel investors don’t usually stay up at night worrying about Capitol Hill. But a financial reform bill proposed by Chris Dodd, the Democrat chairing the Senate Banking Committee, includes new restrictions on startups and angels. Not surprisingly, investors aren’t happy about it, saying it’s “insane,” “frankly ridiculous,” and aims to “destroy Silicon Valley.”

There are three changes that should have a particular effect on angel investors, a catch-all category which includes everyone from friends and family members who invest in a startup, to unaffiliated wealthy individuals, to side investments made by venture capitalists acting on their own.

One More Reason Why SFEG Makes Sense 
(they actually have Gold) 

(The Intelligence Daily) — For a long time many of us have had very serious suspicions that the prices of gold and silver were being highly manipulated. But now, thanks to the mind blowing testimony of one very brave whistle blower, the blatant manipulation of the world gold and silver markets is being blown wide open.  What you are about to read below is absolutely staggering. 

Once the American people learn how incredibly corrupt the world financial system is, it is going to change everything.  The government that we are all trusting to guard the integrity of the financial system is failing to do that job.  It turns out that the Commodities Futures Trading
Commission has been sitting on solid evidence that the elite banking powers have been openly and blatantly manipulating the price of gold and silver.  Even though they were basically handed a “smoking gun”, they have done absolutely nothing with it.  But now the information has gone public and the CFTC is red-faced. 

Back in November 2009, Andrew Maguire, a former Goldman Sachs silver trader in Goldman’s London office, contacted the CFTC’s Enforcement Division and reported the illegal manipulation of the silver market by traders at JPMorgan Chase.

Maguire told the CFTC how silver traders at JPMorgan Chase openly bragged about their exploits - including how they sent a signal to the market in advance so that other traders could make a profit during price suppression episodes.

Traders would recognize these signals and would make money shorting precious metals alongside JPMorgan Chase.  Maguire explained to the CFTC how there would routinely be market manipulations at the time of option expiries, during non-farm payroll data releases, during commodities exchange contract rollovers, as well as at other times if it was deemed necessary.

On February 3rd, Maguire gave the CFTC a two day warning of a market manipulation event by email to Eliud Ramirez, who is a senior investigator for the CFTC’s Enforcement Division.

Maguire warned Ramirez that the price of precious metals would be suppressed upon the release of non-farm payroll data on February 5th.  As the manipulation of the precious metals markets was unfolding on February 5th, Maguire sent additional emails to Ramirez
explaining exactly what was going on.

And it wasn’t just that Maguire predicted that the price would be forced down.  It was the level of precision that he was able to communicate to the CFTC that was the most stunning.  He warned the CFTC that the price of silver was to be taken down regardless of what happened to the employment numbers and that the price of silver would end up below $15 per ounce. Over the next couple of days, the price of silver was indeedtaken down from $16.17 per ounce down to a low of $14.62 per ounce. Because of Maguire’s warning, the CFTC was able to watch a crime unfold, right in front of their eyes, in real time.

So what did the CFTC do about it?
Nothing.
Absolutely nothing.
Which is extremely alarming, because the size of this fraud absolutely dwarfs the Madoff or Enron scandals.  In fact, this fraud is so gigantic that it is not even worth comparing to any of the other major financial scandals of recent times.  
(you just might to want to own some real gold - i.e., SFEG)



GOLDMAN SACHS
Did the "news" that broke Friday on Goldman Sachs surprise you? 

I told you these guys were crooks 5 years ago. 4 years ago. 3 years ago. 2 years ago. 1 year ago. Last month. Last week. Yes, I know, some of my guests have vigorously defended their right to capitalism. BFD! There is no one on this big blue/green marble that believes in capitalism more than I do. I just don't believe in fraud.

Act surprised if you want to. Go ahead...but you have heard it here day after day after day. Go listen to the podcasts. We told you GS took government money and bet against their clients. We told you that incest is an accepted practice between the Fed and GS. We told you not to take the loans, not to invest in the loans, to wait until the bottom fell out and scoop up the bargains. Right? People said we were crazy, Un-American. They said we wore tin-foil hats. That we were right wing nutbaggers way before the phrase teabagger was even coined. Right? Of course.......

So are we happy we were right? No.
Happy we were vindicated... I guess so.

So now what? (stay tuned and find out...)


Weekly Trading Zones
Oh my goodness. How easy would it be to thump our chest and say we called the weekly top 4 days before it happened within a point? Before the world learned what we already knew, I guess it would be easy. In fact, not only did we post it Sunday night, we reminded everyone with a chart that our weekly top was in on Thursday........... Right? 

We don't post our weekly zones so that we can feel righteous after the fact.  We post them to help you know where price will be forced to make a decision. So that you can make intelligent trading decisions in the heat of the action. Have a look at yesterdays post. Look at the "highest weekly zone" chart and then the "24 day price channel" chart. If you see what I hope you see...drop me an email.


This will be the last set of Weekly Zones until I return from Machu Picchu.

Focus On Excellence / Emini Futures Trading - Thursday April 15, 2010

(QQQQ)(DIA)(SPY)


 

 

 

 

"Stay calm; mind your own business; do your own job. You've heard all this from us before, but a reminder never hurts. We want you living in a way that will command the respect of outsiders, not lying around sponging off your friends."
1 Thessalonians 4:11-12 (The Message)

Excellence is doing the right thing when nobody's looking. 

My grandfather once told me that there are two kinds of people:  those who work and those who take the credit.  He told me to try to be in the first group; there was less competition there.  ~Indira Gandhi

I have had more trouble with myself than with any other man I have ever met.
~ Dwight Lyman Moody

Have no fear of robbers or murderers.  They are external dangers, petty dangers.  We should fear ourselves.  Prejudices are the real robbers; vices the real murders.  The great dangers are within us.  Why worry about what threatens our heads or purses?  Let us think instead of what threatens our souls.  ~Victor Hugo

Machu Picchu from Wayna Picchu






"This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no 'brief candle' to me. It is a splendid torch which I have a hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it over to future generations."  - George Bernard Shaw


Greetings from the Great Sabbat,
I've now gone a full 12 days without keying up the mic. It's amazing what you can hear when you simply close your mouth and open your mind. This new shade of solitude I've discovered is most delightful. 

nobody callin' me up for favors 
and no ones future to decide...
 
I leave for Machu Picchu on the 20th and will return May 1st. 

The ruins of Machu Picchu, were rediscovered in 1911 by archaeologist
Hiram Bingham while on Sabbatical from Yale University. (read more)
 
I hope to not only bring back tales of great adventure, but also a clear
vision for the future of CFRN. If all goes well, we will broadcast one last
show prior to departure this Tuesday Thursday @ 12noon EDT. 

Before we get into the numbers for the upcoming week, here's a look at 
last week on both a daily chart as well as a 30 min chart.

Last Week in Review - 
I began using a 30 min chart just to make the whole week "fit" in one chart. Remember? 
Well, it's funny how "Life happens as we're making other plans..." JL once said.
If our Weekly Trading Zones have helped you create "boundaries", I encourage you to also drop them onto a 30 min intra-day chart as the new week unfolds. It will almost make it look easy. 
It's not easy, but it is simple.

Here we go..........

Hangin' With Jesus / Thursday April 1, 2010



"And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise"
(Luke 23:43 KJV)


  
Luke 23
 32Two others, both criminals, were taken along with him for execution.
 33When they got to the place called Skull Hill, they crucified him, along with the criminals, one on his right, the other on his left.
 34-35Jesus prayed, "Father, forgive them; they don't know what they're doing."
   Dividing up his clothes, they threw dice for them. The people stood there staring at Jesus, and the ringleaders made faces, taunting, "He saved others. Let's see him save himself! The Messiah of God—ha! The Chosen—ha!"
 36-37The soldiers also came up and poked fun at him, making a game of it. They toasted him with sour wine: "So you're King of the Jews! Save yourself!"
 38Printed over him was a sign: this is the king of the jews.
 39One of the criminals hanging alongside cursed him: "Some Messiah you are! Save yourself! Save us!"
 40-41But the other one made him shut up: "Have you no fear of God? You're getting the same as him. We deserve this, but not him—he did nothing to deserve this."
 42Then he said, "Jesus, remember me when you enter your kingdom."
 43He said, "Don't worry, I will. Today you will join me in paradise."

Our Lord was crucified with two thieves in order to demonstrate, as the Lord's Supper reminds us, the full extent of His humiliation. At His birth He was surrounded by the animals of the stable and placed in a manger. Now, at His death, He is numbered with criminals. As the early Christian song tells us, He "made himself nothing" and "humbled himself" (Phil 2:7,8).

Our Lord — though sinless, holy, and perfect — was crucified between two criminals, He was "numbered with the transgressors" (Is 53:12). This reminds us of what the Lord's Supper shows us: that He hung there in our place, as our Substitute. We, not Christ, are the transgressors. It should have been us hanging there on the tree between the two thieves. It should have been us suffering the shameful death of the cross. But Christ took our place. He was numbered among the transgressors in our stead.

Jesus hung between the two thieves. God used those two men to dramatize the only two possible responses to the Christ: belief and unbelief, acceptance and rejection, repentance and impenitence.
