Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Earlier we had an HXD chart
and on it we had
"buy less that $9.50 and above trendline."

Below we have the results so far.
You bought at $9.50 or less on nov 3,4,7 or 8th

HXD.TO Historical Prices | HORIZONS BETAPRO S&P/TSX60 BEAR Stock - Yahoo! Finance

You are up from about $9.40 (nov 8th) to the current price ($10.60) so
+$1.20 on $9.40.

This is +17% in 10 trading days.

Next time you hear a wise-cracker say that chart reading doesn't work, you will know that they don't know what they are talking about. (though like any skill an boomkoof can make a muck of it.)

The target given earlier was:

"the high red line"
which is in the +$12.50 area now.

Good trading to everyone.

Here is an updated chart:

If you're not in the trade then on a pullback to the uptrend line you could buy
(e.g. ~$10).

Partial profits at $12.50.

The central banks got together to provide USD lending to european banks as an emergency move which some say was motivated by the potential collapse of a French bank.

There was a large jump in the markets - no doubt aided my US govt buying to rig the markets.

This provides a good price for buying HXD.to (HXD moves inversely to the TSX). Friday's low of $9.71
$9.39 would be the best price it would be the the fourth(?) test of the low and may well fail. It's a bit dicey going in at this point with so much market manipulation going on.

On the side of a buy is the gap in last week's chart 10.59 to 10.22 so closing the gap favors a move to 10.59.

If going long on Monday in the 9.71 area you could sell some on 10.59 (which could happen by Wednesday).

sounds like a good way to ensure protective stops have no protective value in a fast market.
Good to know that IB feels it is important for clients to take the role of market makers and provide the liquidity and "fair and orderly market".

Wednesday 7 Dec 2011

So Monday's low was 9.66 or 5 cents below the low of $9.71 of Friday.
Tuesday's high was $10.15 or +49 cents. (Sell Day)
Today's range was $10.19 to $9.84 (Sell short Day) with rise to 10.19 from 9.66 = +53 cents.

This gives a Buy day target for tomorrow Thursday in the $9.80 area see green circle.

Thursday 8 Dec 2011

So today it did go down into the green circle the objective area.
The objective was meet in the morning which is what you want for a buy day.
FE=LE (first end = low end).

The low was 9.92 in RTH for HXD.
(An even better trade was about 7:30 - if you were trading ES.
For the ES you would be shorting as the HXD is the inverse of the market.)

The last "rally" (buy day low to sell day high), so our objective for a sell target tommorrow is 10.41.
-see calc in picture.

In ES terms we had and RTH high (FE=HE) of 1256.25 and a fall of 25.25
(On Monday 5 Dec -3 days ago it was (FE=HE) of 1266.25 and a fall of 22.50)

In The Taylor trading system there is a 3 day cycle.

Today was the short sell day for the HXD (I have shortened that to "short" on the graph)

On Thursday we had a buy day with a low of 9.92
Today, Monday, we had a high of $10.47.

The difference is 0.55 or +$550 on 1,000 shares.

Tomorrow is a buy day. So you are looking to buy (and you would like the buy objective to be met first).
So you want the FE=LE. I have computed the decline for 1 day and for two days with an average of a -$0.25 decline.
Using $10.47 we have estimates of tomorrows low at $10.20 to $10.24

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


Graphically the estimate is the blue circle.

With the decline of the spx so sharp (and the rise of the HXD so sharply up - with a gap today), my feeling is that the resistence levels of 10.13 and 10.19 will not be tested and it is the higher 10.20 to 10.24 that you will have to pay.
