Tuesday Morning Briefing

The inside day Mole posted earlier for USDCAD just triggered, and I took a glance at the 30 min chart, which shows we have an extended period of low volatility culminating in an extreme low volatility. At the first sign of a volatility uptick this is going to turn into a VERY tradable market. When volatility rises after an extended low period, everything technical works like magic. Inside periods on 15, 30, and 60 min, hammer candles (if the move is up, shooting star candles if the move is down).

In fact any of the Crazy Ivan Setups are worth taking as soon as volatility kicks in. As a sensitive measure of volatility I recommend Standard Deviation or Bollinger Bandwidth. If [...]

Time To Say Hello Again

Welcome to our morning briefing. Here we are reviewing short term setups ahead of the NYSE opening bell. If you are a scalper or swing trader then these setups may be of interest to you. As usual keep in mind that these are short term setups although they could be used as early entries for more longer term positions.

As you recall our RTV-S on the daily NQ was closed out without prejudice last evening as it had not produced 1R at the conclusion of the third candle.

Thursday Morning Briefing

Unfortunately the RTV-S on the daily seems to be dying a slow death as a strong buyer has positioned himself near the 3030 mark (easy number to remember I guess). Well, we do have an inside day entry and that’s what I would focus on right now. Of course there is no reason to abandon any short positions until our 3,057.25 stop has been touched. One [...]

As usual keep in mind that these are short term setups although they could be used as early entries for more longer term positions.

As the saying goes – if it ain’t broke – don’t fix it! The 25-hour seems to be holding up and we also have an hourly NLSL right on top of it. So I’ll be long above 1692 and short below with a stop a few ticks away on opposing sides.

However I find the NQ a bit more delectable as it’s being wedged between [...]
