Good morning...

I'm not following you on the positive and negative A/D for a given day. Can you explain that a bit? Also, if the day is positive on the A/D, what does that mean? Just that there were more advancers vs decliners that day?

Allistah - i used 3 ave range size - for 3 days consecutively - in a pivot calculator- high _ close _ low
so if i had 3 numbers for 3 day

neg 1101.63
neg 1027.26
pos 68.19

the 68.19 was the high due to being the only positive number
the neg 1101.63 we the low
and 1027.26 was used as the close -
all i was looking for was any sign of telling movement direction -
so if the # showed up as a positve or above 0(zero) i was looking for and up day the following day -if the # showed up negative ,i was looking for a down day the following day -
i am just testing and idea , that you brought to my attention -i will watch this over time - and see if it will provide us any direction help at your entry points on your weekly trades -
do i think it will be or expect it to be 100% accurate - not on my life -

just testing a theory on a thought

hope this helps
if not please detail and area of question and i will try and clarify

We were questioned today as why we were not posting as often - well my summer typer has gone back to school and my wife is charting ,as we are looking for sweet cherry pick trades do to the flatness of the es - we did reneter our 30 min swing trade this week after the the 30 min posted 5 reversals in 4 hours and 15 min - i figured that was a good shake out - will post the chart after 1 pm friday -

also am curious as to where aapl will close tommorow -

aapl

the trade hit our shorting zone by 44 cents up at 682.66 and closed in our projected range of 660(purple line)and the trade objective of 670 or above - we gave the long trade a winning % of 27 % and the short trade on the weekly of 73 % winning chance -the long had to close above 670 and the short below --

of coures the near perfect short was also premarket and most would have never got that entry -
