The reason Zman is quick to ban troublemakers is because he want to maintain the quality and integrity of this board with a 100% focus on quality TA free from food fights, personal attacks, and noise.
Ask yourself why would a poster ask admin to override my ban when said poster NEVER posts anything of substance here. No TA, no market timing analysis, just personal attacks, and snark/taunting. And yet admin plays along with this???
I agree. He should just post his work and give his reasons. What I have found is that everyone has opinions, but most are willing to post their facts without making "snarky" remarks. I try to read and digest everyones' posts. IMHO, there is no need for the "snarky" commentary. Stick around and keep posting your timing info. I made some nice money playing with SPXU on the down side during August. (I had August called for a weak correction). Now I see an UP move to over 2500 on the SPX (and maybe to 2700). IMHO, there is just too much money going into the indexes to see your "crash" scenario take place. I think October might have more down, but no "crash" just yet. At least not without a Black Swan event. The middle of 2018 is where I see something happening. Sorry to be so long winded. GLTU going forward. RDK
Just to show good faith Zman has reviewed his total ban list and has removed those who he feels deserve another chance to stick to the rules of adding value with 100% TA and market timing focused posts. Zman is NOT unfair or frivolous in who he bans. He applies the rules equally to all... stay away from politics and personal attacks and snark/taunting and there is no problem posting here. If you think there has been a misunderstanding then PM me and we can work it out. But repeat offenders and those with a long history as troublemakers will not be reinstated by me.
As mentioned previosly Zman has a cycle high due 9/4 +/- 1 TD. Since 9/4 is a market holiday that means Friday could have been it or we get a gap and crap Turnaround Tuesday...
From the perspective of Zman's cycle work next week is truly Make or Break week for the Bearz. We must see hard down week for for the bear scenario and to reinforce the importance of the 8/9 +/- Zman Top Date high.
I'm leaning long on everything. As I have previously stated I think there is just too much money floating around to see a "crash" scenario take place. If we do get weakness within your market timing calls I would be adding to long positions. PS....I am rarely on line on the weekends, especially holiday weekends. Doing some DD. I'll be watching. One never knows if we get a "Black Swan" event. So much turmoil these days, IMO. GLTU going forward. RDK
It's good to see zman back. I want to especially thank SI Ron for taking the time to understand this nuanced situation. That's why Silicon Investor is such a great place, a unique place, a special place.
I'm wondering how the recent news of North Koreas successful test of a H bomb will affect the market. I suspect the futes will open down hard tonight-- could we see a replay of the election night sell-off?
