2/22 – 3:20 p.m. New York time

I entered no positions today and exited none.

2/22 – 11:25 a.m. New York time

My positions on FXE and GLD remain as they were on Wednesday when I entered them, downtrending as signaled by the Fisher Transform on the daily chart.

I shall exit under two circumstances: 1) A position reaches 50% of its maximum potential profit, or 2) the daily Fisher Transform signals an uptrend.

I’m looking to add one of the broad equity indexes to the mix — SPY or QQQ or IWM — as soon as one gives a Fisher downtrend signal.
