I didn't mean to be gone so long....

I got the chance to take a break, and took it. (Or, to use Mark Twain's line, "The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated".)

Didn't get much chance to take a break from trading though. When good trades keep appearing, it would be irrational not to take them.

Just when I thought it couldn't be much better than the action in September, October, and November--- December turned out to be a huge month for my trading year. Non-forex markets played a large part (60%+) of my profits the last 2 weeks of December.

Thanks for checking in on the site while I disappeared, and the emails to check if I was dead.

Don't expect to see much more downside on most of the physical commodities. All the smart money recently on the sidelines is finding a home..., buying value.
