Trade Aptitude

Friday’s Best S&P Turning Points Results: Neither trade suggestion triggered. 

Today’s Best S&P Turning Points (consider wider stops and less size in fast moving markets): 

Short 3843.25 stop 3849.00. Buy 3728.25 stop 3724.00.

The World Sentiment Index: (+100/-100) EASES from +64 to +50 with most major world markets bullish. Historically the market closes lower from the open 54% of the time. 

Catalysts: Nothing on the economic calendar. Elections and CPI on Thursday are the drivers this week. Tech layoffs, lowered earnings estimates. 

Quick Tip: Intra-day Trend

If you look at a 15-minute chart of the S&P Futures from Friday you wouldn’t call it a “trending” day. It was smoothly higher during the Globex session and then reacted violently to the payrolls report swinging down, up, down, up, down and ending modestly up. 

Trend is time-frame dependent, though. In our trading room we use a proprietary intra-day trend strategy on a volume bar chart. The swings were captured nicely producing a 135-point day. Admittedly this is a rare performance but getting days like this a few times a month makes all the difference. 

If you’re not trading intra-day trends you should start!

Trade Fearlessly,
