20 Points Available Between The Zones



Weekly Trading Zones Offer 4 Trades | 20 S&P Points Available


Price action was constrained nicely between the 1548/49 Weekly Zone on the upside and the 1542/1543 Zone on the downside. In a recent post Live Trading Room - Best Week Ever! we discussed what an important role our Weekly Trading Zones play in our overall trade strategy.

On the charts below you will see 4 well defined legs, each with 5 points of potential from Zone to Zone. Picture if you will, a caged animal pacing back and forth waiting for an opportunity to break and run. You will hear this referred to as "consolidation" or "coiling", others will call it a range, I suppose everyone can be right on this one. 

The case for the Bull Run which we discussed in The Biggest Triple Top In Trading History gained even more credibility in the eyes of some today as perma-bear Richard Russell issued a "Buy the Dow" recommendation to his subscribers. Just when we thought it couldn't get any stranger... it did.

We've spent several days cautioning you about the big picture potential and encouraging you to call Burt @ 866-928-3310 to discuss a strategy to protect your 401K and any retirement accounts. We want to avail ourselves to whichever way the market moves intra-day, but not at the expense of our golden years. Once again, call Burt and let him give you some basic ideas on protecting your assets while still remaining available to take advantage of the upcoming volatility.

Volatility is a Trader's best friend, right after a hard stop. Volatility is on it's way, it may even get violent, so be prepared and make sure you have a hard stop on every single position. Mr Russell encouraged his subscribers today to use a "mental stop" of 8% on the Diamond ETF (DIA). For such a smart man, that's a really bad idea. What good could come from a mental stop? Unless it's a hard stop, it's not a stop at all.

Daniels Trading and the dtPro Platform allow you 1 Click peace of mind when you place an order. If you need help setting up your bracket order on the DOM, call Burt. With one click, you have your:

  • Entry
  • Target
  • Stop Loss

Automating the process takes away the emotions that so many traders succumb to. In the video below you will see a trade in Gold today, and you will see how beautifully the dtPro Dom handled the bracket ordrer and the trade itself. Once we were triggered in I could have gone fishing if it weren't for the fact that the trade only lasted 30 seconds... but that's a post for another day.


S&P 500 Emini Futures


Before we look at the video let's go over the Zone to Zone trades. First off, here's a chart that covers the entire day. 


S&P 500 Emini Futures - Hourly Chart


On the hourly chart it appears we only had 3 Zone to Zone moves. Allow me to break it down to a smaller time frame. Before I switch time frames, notice how price consolidated in the 1548/49 Weekly Zone for 9 hours before making its move. Also notice the fake-out in the 9th hour.


SP 500 Emini Futures - 5 Minute ChartS&P 500 Emini Futures - 5 Minute Chart


What appeared to be 1 leg down on the hourly, is clearly revealed here on the 5 minute chart to be both a leg down as well as a leg back up. In all fairness, we were short 1 tick on the return trip up, but as we always say, "Zones are an area". We just get spoiled by seeing them turn on a dime so often. Let's go find the other 2.


SP 500 Emini Futures - 15 Minute ChartS&P 500 Emini Futures - 15 Minute Chart


The 15 minute chart shows the final 2 legs quite nicely. So what do we have here? We have the market (not us) making 20 points available. With the benefit of the Zones to guide you, how many points were you able to take based on your skill set? Perhaps you don't even trade the Zones. You might simply use them to let you know it's time to exit a short or a long, or they give you a heads up not to get long or short prior to slamming into a brick wall. However you use them, now that you have them... don't leave home without 'em.

If you are on a Free Trial, be sure to ask Michael for his Layout. It contains the Zones for this week.


Another Day Another 5 Minutes


I was determined to trade Crude, or the Nasdaq, or the S&P today, but when I sat down to make the video, I had to trade what was setting up and again today that happened to be Gold. You'll see my feeble attempt to increase my target. I must be getting old...
