T2126 - came back in

WTI CRUDE - soggy sideways. H&S pattern.

Bit Coin - starting to look bullish; watching the proxies. Sam posted in Slack on this. Potential breakout above 65k ... it could be a very explosive move higher.

TLT - expected bullish rise into 93 area; 91.30 (55day MA) and above that into 200-day MA. that is working. nice follow through.
