thanks for the question- it does not get shifted into place until the chart shows we must prepare to shift into the break even zone - i never like to tempt the market to test my levels -the funny part not that it is so funny -is this - i had completely forgot i had taken that last short till i went and pulled up the ladder on that account -was very busy today -may take a day or 2 off - hope this helps with your question

here is and early screening of the es -remember as stated in earlier post -this setup works in all markets -now here is aa tip for the programers to help dial in there computer model to match ours - my trendlines -if you count the trendlines that go north and the trendlines that go south you can find which way the market is weighted and trade accordingly -there is also a very simple way to program this so your system will let you know when its balanced or ready for a reversal -but you will figure it out over time -

as for es we are still in our 91 to 05/08 range

down in the battle zone -switched to a 333 tick due to extreme slowness and the super high volume at this point
