Market Finds Support At Weekly Trading Zone

S&P 500 Double Bottom Support | CFRN Weekly Trading Zone

Range and volatility this week have been a trader's paradise. Not only did the brisk action to the downside create a beautiful 10 point victory for our Tweet, price then reversed off the WTZ (to the tick) and made a beeline for the Weekly Zone overhead. Partners who were on their toes not only grabbed 10 points on the way down via the Tweet, but within 3 hours they were handed a 12 point opportunity to the upside as price raced north from "Zone to Zone".

Weekly Zones Capture Another 20 Points

S&P 500 Makes Another 20 Points Available Between The Zones

We covered the Weekly Trading Zones in depth in the last post. The market has now made an additional 20 points available as it continues to trade between the upper zone at 1548/1549 and the lower zone at 1542/1543. You will often hear traders complain about the market being "range bound". I won't make you suffer through the "lemons into lemonade" analogy, but that's really my point.

This particular range just so happens to be wide enough (5 Points), that it's possible to navigate and trade from the top to the bottom and back again. Once you're able to clearly define Support and Resistance, if there is enough distance between the two, you can trade it as long as you don't over think it. Bear in mind, if you're dealing with a 5 point range, any attempt to take more than 5 points on a trade, will leave you extremely disappointed.

Introducing The Emini Pop Up Chat For Traders

CFRN "Pop-Up" Chat - Neighborhood Outreach For Emini Traders

Tonight was our first impromptu, random gathering on the web and quite frankly, it went rather well. As someone who by nature is organizationally challenged, what better way to fulfill my calling without having to adhere to some rigorous schedule rubber stamped by The Man. Thanks to those who Popped-In and made it possible.

Support And Resistance Made Simple | Episode #1,559

Support & Resistance Made Simple | Emini Futures Trading

Scanning our Blog Archive you'll see we have dedicated many blog posts to the topic of Trading Support and Resistance. Of all the topics we have written about or discussed on our Daily Emini Radio Broadcast over the past 7 years, probably none are more vital for the success of an Emini Futures Trader than the topic we've chosen tonight.

My friend and co-host Mike Reed, has used this simple concept as the core of his methodology for 27 years. He taught me a lot about the subject and I've discovered more on my own, but without him, I have no doubt I would not be where I am today. I am a firm believer in giving credit where credit is due. Without his mentoring and patience, traders around the world would be forced to face the markets each week without the benefit of our Weekly Trading Zones.

Emini Podcast For Tuesday November 6, 2012

"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing."  ~  Edmund Burke 

Support And Resistance Levels During The Election

We knew ahead of time the election results would move the markets. No matter which candidate prevailed, the incumbent or the challenger, when you choose the leader of the worlds economic super-power, things are going to shake, rattle and roll.

Given that, what's the chance they will do it in an orderly fashion? Our Weekly Trading Zones are sent to the CFRN Partners before the market opens every Monday morning. Did we make a special allowance this week for the election? Did we factor in last week the potential for the biggest storm in our nation's history? The answer is no.

Math is neutral. Rain or shine, Democrat or Republican, the numbers are the numbers. Nothing more, nothing less - numbers. The Zones sent to our Partners last week and this week were completly agnostic to external influences. This is how we turn chaos into divine order. This is how we, in our own humble way, show you week after week, after week, that our walk is not random.

Emini Podcast For Monday October 1, 2012

The S&P 500 Emini Futures opened the new quarter with two-sided volatility. The day began with a brisk run up to our Weekly Trading Zone at 1451/1452. The first chart below is an hourly chart which shows a very impressive Bullish Candle. Although we find the hourly charts to be extremely beneficial to our intraday trading, on the second chart you will see that the bulk of this action which was in fact a news driven event (PMI) transpired in just 5 minutes. The fact the market was unable to continue the rally during the next few 5 minute candles gave us a heads up that we might possibly have already seen the high of the day.

Weekly Trading Zones Frame Emini Market Action

Listen to Wednesday's Emini Radio Broadcast by clicking the headphones above.

Weekly Trading Zones Frame Emini Market Action

As a new trader the markets often seem like nothing more than utter chaos. The purpose of our Weekly Zones are to give you a structure or framework to work within. Before the market opens on Monday we email and post our projections for the entire week. We post the highest level we expect the market to reach (resistance) as well as the lowest (support). We also cover the levels in between where we believe the market will consolidate as the week progresses.

Rarely do we see the week close outside of the zones. You can review 2 years of charts on the blog or click the button on the toolbar below "CFRN Charts" where you will find some 700 charts many of which show how we use the Zones week in and week out. After reviewing the charts you can APPLY and put our Zones to work in your own Emini Futures Trading.

Many of our Partners state the value from the Zones alone have more than offset the cost of our 90 day comprehensive training program and proprietary indicator set which you keep for life. We understand that in tough economic times pursuing an education can be difficult. In response we are proud to announce that we now offer complete financing for those who wish to become a partner. "18 Months Same As Cash" is just one of the many options now available to those who wish to make an investment in their financial future. To learn more email support@cfrn.net or call us at 415-857-5654 for full details.

The chart below is just one more week (this week) between the Zones.

Trading Emini Support Levels $ES_F

Trading Emini Support Levels

Using our Weekly Trading Zones as well as following our Twitter Feed @CFRN are both excellent ways to be aware of key areas of Support and Resistance in the S&P 500 and other Emini markets. Once a major area is identified it will in most cases offer multiple trading opportunities. To learn more about this concept, read  Why Important Prices Are Almost Always Tested .

Why Important Prices Are Almost Always Tested

Important Prices Are Almost Always Tested

As you will see in a moment Emini Futures prices tend to stop and reverse several times at or around the same price level. Why is that? What is it that makes a particular price important? Is it a secret formula discovered by men with names like Fibonacci, Bollinger, or Wilder? Perhaps...

Or, did they discover something more about the nature of man vs. the nature of numbers?

I've worked with formulas, ancient alchemy, and even burned a little sage in search of the answer. Right or wrong, here's my opinion...

After the build up this may sound a little mundane. We know a price is important because it gets "tested". Can we know it's important before the test? hmmmm...

It does seem a bit odd that an imaginary spot on the chart can hold prices down or prop them up. Those spots are not imaginary, they represent the collective valuation of every trader currently in the market. As we test that price over a period of time we can "connect the dots" and create lines. That's right, good ol' Support and Resistance Lines.
