Quick review of indications of probable trend day: 1) Gap above WHITE ZONE indicating bulls were in control 2) Failure to fill gap 3) No negative tick reading greater that -200 & 4) rotations down were very small relative to the rotations up. It is important to identify trend days quickly. They are extremely damaging to counter trend traders because of the lack of rotation down (or up depending on direction). Inexperienced traders take loss after loss trying to counter trade it and the experience can be maddening. The flip side of that coin is that early detection of trend day up can be a big pay day.
(2) Since I am running behind I will cut it short & simply say that while but signals were triggered multiple times there simply were few opportunities for fills. The break of the 1591.75 - 1593 zone did trigger a signal & provide an entry but never gave a two point rotation higher as the market. On my spread sheet I am counting the entry as a break even trade. I use a hypothetical stop of 3 points for the spread sheet which was never triggered. Please keep in mind that the spread sheet are hypothetical entries and exits and are for education purposes only. Its to demonstrate how executing a consistent entry and consistent exit on a high odds strategy can solve many many problems that most non-professional traders face in trading any security. Please don't follow me blindly. Your entries & exits and trade size should be based on your personal ability to handle risk & your stops should also fit that profile.
