Back at it again folks. Another day plus 2 hours of sleep :-). Life is good. Sometimes she gives you not what you want but exactly what you need.  Having slept a full two hours last night, I feel like I am ready to take on the cosmos aliens and any superpower being in macro land. Until 10am when my mood crashes and the tiredness takes over of course :-). Not to worry thats not why you are here. Lets get on with the show.

Todays dashboard update in the Energy  space ( XLE)  is showing some interesting outputs.

Strong performance over the last three months. With a down day on volume yesterday vs the three month average, but up vs the one month average.

Also sitting at the top end of the range. You know what to do…. Book some gains if not already booked. Plus, the spread between Implied vol and realised vol over a 30day period in percentage terms with respect to the last 3 days is now yuuuge @ 12.33% with respect to where it was 30 days ago it was 9.70% … that 30% differential should not be ignored. people are complacent and do not see the need for protection. So please if you have any energy exposure now would be a good time to book some gains.

BTC is still s&^%$^g the bed down another 7.28% this morning. C’mon HODLERS don't let GOLD eat your lunch! Speaking of Gold, its starting to look attractive again up over 5% in the last three months  as real rates have backed off a bit. Now is the time to start looking into the miners and precious metal space for good opportunities. If policy makers intend to financially repress their way to economic prosperity, then allocating some capital to the precious metal space is not a bad idea.

Thats it from me for now look out for updates as the day goes on. Good luck boys and gals.

    • @Caseynotesthanks for the reply. How do I know if I am trading at DMA platform or any other.       
    • Hi, all brokers are market makers to some extent. If you are trading on the Direct Market Access (DMA) platform then you are dealing on the exchange through IG but if using any other platform then IG looks to match those trades inhouse matching shorts to longs. Any excess they hedge on the exchange themselves.  So IG aren't taking the other side of your trade, they are covered whether you win or lose and they make on the spread from both parties. If they need to hedge they still win because they get a better spread than what they pass on to you.  
    • Err, I've had all my real vaccines, the ones that completed safety trials, have also had special vaxxes when had to present proof when travelling to a country were there were dangerous diseases present, no problem. But experimental gene therapy that has no medium or long term risk data for a disease that, according to the FDA, has just a 1 in 250,000 risk, and needing to present proof to go to a restaurant or club in my home town - no, this is not about a virus.   Note that the FDA officials that the Biden admin pressured into giving early FDA approval for these vaxxes both resigned. FDA panel just voted 16-3 AGAINST approving the boosters This slide was shown at their meeting.
