#2 -super nice low risk entry signal - study these and get to know them financially -


at this time my 94.75 would have been better played at 97.45

your 99 long is above the wall and we need to see the 565 cross above the 1400 -then we could maybe see 18 from the low -time will tell - stop below the low -

when you get to mutiple contracts -always reduce to set your self up for a free trade aagreement -
thus when trading 2
exit 1 when up 2 points in this case -that way if your 99 runs against you -with your exit @ 97 -you have a free trade -and with smaller risk its even better -


be back after lunch at some point-goodluck

sure you can ask - last summer i was working with a guy while his partner was in russia i believe -and at the most volitile point of last summer i called 250 points of profit in either 3.5 days or 4.5 days -i wouldhave to check the log to confirm the time distance -so i have been doing it for a while now -oh -i did call the 666 bottom of the s&p also -oh but you want to know when i figured out how to do this -some of us are born with it and some of us its thrust upon - its been quite a while -i am sure with your system you can comeup with years of trades to confirm your method as i can -tell Mr James Dimon i said hello

p.s. also called the top using US steel as my benchmark way back in what year-


look at a 20 year monthly chart and tell me what you see-

tf-- i spread this out to show what i see

item #2 -good mid range entry -

notice the market is above all blue trend (s/r) lines
its also above the 565 ma
it had 3 chances to break the 1400 ma

thus item #2 is the cross of the 30/150 techincal crossover after holding all the other supports -

i will try to clarify these over time as time allows
