I remember at the start of the GFC it was over 2 Dollars to the
Pound - I've asked Matt and Steve for a discount now that I'm paid
in a third world currency...still waiting for a
I just got an alert to say the TradeStation developer / app
store is closing for good at the end of this month - does anyone
know the reason why? Surely it's part of TradeStation's raison
d'etre / USP?

Good question, I don't know. However, it's worth mentioning the
price cap is per unit of energy, not an overall limit on how much
households pay. No surprise, wholesale costs are the largest
element of a UK retail energy bill - and the price cap is adjusted
to reflect changes in wholesale prices. As indicated in my previous
post, the price cap is almost certainly going to go up in each of
the next three quarters, reflecting the rise in wholesale prices
(of gas and electricity). I think wholesale costs used to be about
a third of your energy bill, but now they are about half and soon
could be two-thirds. In other words, the other elements of the bill
are staying relatively stable (network costs, supplier costs,
social/green levies, tax, etc) so I suppose that means the
producers are always getting paid their dues.
Here in the UK we have a retail energy price cap but no such
thing exists in Germany I believe. That said, forecasts are for the
cap to be increased in Q4 and again next year in Q1 and Q2. Scary
Interesting indicators/signals on the price bars - are these
available via TS store or another third-party?
If I was of a mind to start up my own trade recommendation
service, I'd just piggyback the BPT SPY/ES signals and claim them
as my own............
..........I have no such nefarious plans by the way! And
hopefully no one would stoop so low...
Matt, ES Breakout = Stopped out soon?
Hi Matt, the SPY RSI 40 system you are tracking - I believe
price is now a bit lower than the original entry - enough for a 2nd
Matt. for interest, that RSI 40 sub system that triggered on
Friday, would that have closed out by now? Or perhaps end of play
Aha, that explains it. I'm in the UK so 2-9pm for trading hours
- difficult to sort the kids out after work and keep any eye on the
screen - I am trying to train myself to just trade the SPY / ES
systems. Talking of which, Kobie, do you ever use Floor Trader
Pivot levels for entries or exits? There is nearly always a
reaction off them. Currently price is bouncing off S2 with positive
divergence on the MACD. I use IG Index, a spread betting platform -
price tracks the ES pretty much perfectly, +/- a point of
Kobie, you post at all hours of the day and night! What time
zone are you on?
Better entry prices now on futures - worth making it official?
The Force is strong in Kobie - no strategy or indicator he does
Matt, I've got an account with the spread betting company you
reference. I note that 71% of retail traders lose money with the
company and that currently 77% of client accounts are long the
index - does that mean another quick flush is almost inevitable, ie
shake out the masses? :)
Anyway, the Weekend Wall Street price is walking the daily pivot
today. It's about 6pm here in the UK as I write.
Some say you are the Invisible Hand of the market - aka Obi Wan
Kobie, Keyser Kobie, etc...
I'm 50 next year - something I never saw coming in my wildest
dreams - expecting fire and brimstone and the earth to swallow me
