Yesterday Close Setup

Hi this is my first contribution. Hopefully someone will find this helpful. This setup works in a range day. Attached is a picture for today short setup in ES. The concept is that market is at an equilibrium on a range day. The distance from the day's low will be equal to the day's high. So for today, since it went down first we look to go short.

1. Look at yesterday close. ES closed at 1128.75.
2. ES went down to 1125 which is -3.75pts from yesterday close.
3. ES went up to 1132.75 which is +4pts up from yesterday close.
4. Short at the high and exit once it came back to yesterday close.

Hey Buddha,

(always wanted to start a letter that way!)

Put up a chart using FibBands based on previous close except in this case since close so close to a POC (Point of Control) price and the close in Gold is not all that clear practically speaking, used that. Then threw bands around that price based on standard deviation calcs used in vwap which include the current range starting at midnight each day. The bands are based on the mid-line / previous close though, not the vwap. Little white and red dots are targets based on when a new band is penetrated.

To set to a manual price
a) choose Manual as MAtype
b) enter the price in the ManualOverridePrice input.

There are different type of band types to play with as well. You might find it of interest.

Chart:

the white lines are dynamic POC's. I just didn't take them off.
The flatline darkmagenta is the previous close around which the bands are made.

Again, different types of band possible, some more responsive than others, can also adjust ratio to fib numbers etc.

I got confused and thought for some reason your thread had Crude. Anyway, here is a 500 vol Crude chart using YCl as mean price. Look at how many of the #1 Tgts (red dots) were later hit. Nice approach on sideways days but as Sam said above: how do you know it's sideways at first. Well, maybe you don't. But maybe later you do.

OK, same thing with ES. Works very nicely on range days like you say. Thanks.

I drew some arrows showing the targets (horizontal) and the entry to exit journey (diagonals). There is no fancy math in there apart from the std deviation bands. Idea is that the target is exactly same distance away from the mean when triggered by penetration of a band. In the right market conditions, this is a very dependable approach as Gio pointed out in BM's FibExpansion indicator thread.

I asked a trader once "How do you know when you will see the daily hi?" He said, "You can just tell." Mmmriight... Everytime a new bar goes up you see a new daily hi. You just have to enter and expect a huge drawdown. Heck, don't even use a stop because you don't know when it will reverse, but eventually it will reverse and you will make money then. Just grow a pair of iron balls while you wait. Or you could just enter the market in whichever direction you want and wait for it to go that way until you are happy with your profits. Then close the trade, as long as your broker doesn't care and you have enough margin to cover. It's all about money management and your psychology anyway.

Dragon, this is not to disagree with your general point, but I believe it is possible to sometimes gauge whether or not a market is trending or mainly rotating. Of course this is always easier after the fact, however consider the ES example today.

We did have a closing price to serve as original marker to compare current with previous prices. So: market thrust down a ways below it twice soon after open. But then very quickly and sharply bounced to about the same level above as below, as Buddha pointed out. At this point we know we have a yo-yo effect in play. Whether it will remain as such or end up being a new big uptrend remains to be seen, but as of right now ( say around 10.45 as the high is being made) we can look for a pattern entry to fade the move and accept getting stopped out above the RH; or we can wait to see if after a pullback it will continue on up again. If it doesn't, as happened here at 11.15 with a failure to challenge the 10.45 high and an OVB reversing back down, chances are that at the very least we are going to go back down to the middle if not all the yo-yo way back down to earlier low levels since it really doesn't look like we have a trend day.

And this was all set up by the first yo-yo move which meant that despite the fact there were sellers in the beginning, also there were buyers. In other words, a mixed market. This was clear within the first 30 mins so until it is very clear there is not a mixed market, maybe the smart thing to do is to take what evidence is there and assume we are in a rotational mode today and start selling high and buying low.

That's ok. I was thinking maybe I should respond because I may have been a little harsh. I think Sam's point is more geared towards a daily hi type play I was responding to. I have traded this style on rangy days with a swing hi/lo, pretty much Al Brooks style, except you don't use the close as your anchor, you use the 20 ema.

Sam, I don't know if today high is indeed the high. What I do is gauge if today is a range day and go with the setup. Alot of time after one big run up day like yesterday, market would pause for the next day to catch a breather assuming there is no major news coming out. Also, I need some kind of resistance line to confirm the point of entry. I use market profile line or whatever may work for you.
