3/9 – 3:10 p.m. New York time

i entered one position, a bear play on FXE, and exited none.

And I close the week with a recommended read, “The Role of Luck in Life Success Is Far Greater Than We Realized“, from Scientific American, and a question, to what extent do the research findings described therein apply to trading?

3/9 – 11:55 a.m. New York time

I have entered a position on FXE.

3/9 – 10:35 a.m. New York time

FXE flipped into a downtrend on the Fisher Transform that corresponds with a downtrending Elliott wave count, and I shall enter a bear position today.

My GLD position has moved to a downtrend on the Fisher and I shall continue to hold.

IWM’s count and Fisher Transform remain unchanged from yesterday and I shall continue to hold, but with reservations about that course of action.
