Do your Homework

ST Brunch was cancelled today, so I'm going put a couple points here. ST Brunch serves as my weekend "homework" for the next trading week, so when I don't verbalize my thoughts it actually hinders my performance for the week after. So I'm going to list what I normally go through.

The list below is my normal progression throughout macro land. I try to find what relationships are working and if there's any intermarket volatility on the horizon. If you go through this list every weekend, you will have a better grasp on the markets come Monday:

ES
SPY
QQQQ
IWM

EEM
FXI
TUR
EWS

VIX
VXO
VXN
RVX

DX
DBV
EURUSD
AUDUSD
GBPUSD
USDCAD
USDJPY
USO
OVX
HG

GLD
GVZ
SLV
PL
PA

DBA
BAL
SGG

TLT
TIP
MUB
JNK
LQD

I'll put some notes out later on regarding what's going on in forex land, and how the AUDUSD is a large risk for the commodities complex right now.
