You gotta island hop a bit, too. I recommend 3 days in koh lanta as a base.

I’d skip pattaya. Predominantly sex tourists. If you’re flexible on dates, try to time your trip to coincide with Songkran, a country wide water gun fight (though it’s particularly fun in Chiangmai). If you have the budget, the Four Seasons Tented Camp in Chiangrai is amazing. If you’re a Marriott person, Naka Island in Phuket has some amazing rates at the moment.

We are closer to the end of this initial selling than the beginning. All this technical selling on a 15 minute chart simply brings us back to a 4 Hour Halfway Back long of May 20 to Highs. And, we find support right in the middle of this HWB long. I think we can go a little lower to break the long in a dip below the 61.8% red line. Alternatively, we can hold here and rally. Either way, tomorrow or next week, we are due to rally 300 Nasdaq points. Take profits and be smart.
