This HTML5 Remote Desktop app might replace my laptop.

I use a remote server to automate my trading, so I don’t need to look at screens all day.

But I do need something to monitor the server if required.

That’s why I got an XPS 13 to monitor it on-the-go, if needed.


But now everything has changed.

I found Remote Spark, an HTML5 remote desktop client.

I can now login to my server from any device – iPad, phone, Chromebook…


Truly amazing.

XPS 13 is now redundant.

An iPad is all I need.

Massive move in gold coming.


Annual momentum (price vs 3 year MA) shows a triangle formation – shown at the bottom.

A weekly close above this triangle (possibly happening now) will mean gold -0.15% begins a multi-year secular move to the upside.

Speculative interest is not overextended.

Momentum structures in DXY -0.06% also suggest that USD has begun a downtrend.

Get ready.

Long EUR for long term


Time to get long EUR.

Speculators have turned net long Euros for the first time since 2014 – when ECB started aggressively easing, and EURUSD was above 1.30.


  • A medium term trendline at 1.10 has been broken.
  • 1.10 psychological round number taken out.


  • Euro area has large current account surplus vs US – should drive flows into Europe now that political situation has calmed.
  • ECB will soon begin to tighten policy, tapering QE.


Fair value for EURUSD is 1.30 based on PPP and current account differentials.

Current account differentials should drive FX markets in the medium-long term, as the path of monetary policy is becoming more clear.

Using a powerful remote desktop to offload computing power requirements

I spent a lot of time and money on my computer setup:


I actually have two of those setups.

I thought I needed them because my trading requires a lot of RAM and processing power.

But I now discovered I actually don’t need those.


Recently, I started renting a powerful dedicated server for my trading.

It’s near my broker’s server in London, has more RAM and processing goodness than I could wish for, and it runs 24/7 without hiccups.

I then found I no longer needed my desktop, because I could just connect to my server remotely and do what I had to do.


So, right now I’m having fun managing all my trading using my XPS 13.
