The March S&P E-Mini contract has fired 90-10 Low Continuation and Momentum Pinball Buy signals for today's trading. The 90-10 Low Continuation signal is fired when the day closes within the bottom 10% of the day's range. It tells us that yesterday's late day move lower is likely to continue on into today. The Momentum Pinball Buy signal suggests that IF the first hour's high happens to be broken, the market is telling us something completely different than originally assessed, and we'd want to consider a long position. Cycle Indicators (chart at right) appear as if a short term cyclical top has recently been marked, and the more immediate trend is to lower prices. Odds favor continued downside in today's early trading. Sell the break of yesterday's 1991.25 low with a stop just above the 2009.75 level of the Daily Pivot. Price weakness below the DP may provide clues for earlier entry. The Momentum Pinball Buy signal, on the other hand, suggests we consider the long side if the first hour's high happens to be broken to the upside.

The March S&P E-Mini contract has fired 2 Day ROC Buy, 90-10 High Continuation, Low Breakout Continuation Setup, and Momentum Pinball Sell signals for today's trading. The 2 Day ROC Buy signal implies that today's principal trade direction should be to the upside. The 90-10 High Continuation signal is fired when the day closes within the top 10% of the day's range. It tells us that yesterday's late day move higher is likely to continue on into today. The Low Breakout Continuation Setup signal implies significant downside IF yesterday's low happens to be taken out. The Momentum Pinball Sell signal suggests that IF the first hour's low happens to be broken, the market is telling us something completely different than originally assessed, and we'd want to consider a short position. Odds favor continued upside in today's early trading. Buy the break of yesterday's 2059.25 high with a stop just below the 2045.00 level of the Daily Pivot. Price strength above the DP may provide clues for earlier entry. The Momentum Pinball Sell signal, on the other hand, suggests we consider the short side if the first hour's low happens to be broken to the downside.

The March S&P E-Mini contract has fired 2 Day ROC Buy, 90-10 High Continuation & Reversal, and Momentum Pinball Sell signals for today's trading. The 2 Day ROC Buy signal implies that today's principal trade direction should be to the upside. The 90-10 High Continuation & Reversal signal is telling us to look for morning follow through on the strong close, but to expect a likely reversal once the initial move has topped. The Momentum Pinball Sell signal suggests that IF the first hour's low happens to be broken, the market is telling us something completely different than originally assessed, and we'd want to consider a short position. Cycle Indicators (chart at right) appear as if a short term cyclical low has recently been marked, but the more immediate trend has been largely sideways. Odds favor continued upside in today's early trading. Buy the break of Friday's 2014.25 high, or even earlier if price can demonstrate strength above 1999.25 level of the Daily Pivot. But stand prepared to exit or even reverse if we get appropriate price reversal patterns and/or Oscillator Divergence near important resistance levels. Our Normal High Range Projection level of 2035.00 or the Extended High Range Projection level of 2051.75 would be likely areas for such a reversal to take place, as would be a test and failure of Friday's high.

Yesterday's High Potential Setup in the S&P resulted in a sharp and very profitable move to higher prices. Pattern Signals fired for today's trading imply even further upside to follow. The March S&P E-Mini contract has fired 90-10 High Continuation & Reversal and Momentum Pinball Sell signals for today's trading. The 90-10 High Continuation & Reversal signal tells us to look for morning follow through on the strong close, but to expect a likely reversal once the initial move has topped. The Momentum Pinball Sell signal suggests that IF the first hour's low happens to be broken, the market is telling us something completely different than originally assessed, and we'd want to consider a short position. Cycle Indicators (chart at right) appear as if a short term cyclical low has recently been marked, and the more immediate trend is to higher prices. Odds favor continued upside in today's early trading. Buy the break of yesterday's 2058.50 high, or even earlier if price demonstrates strength above the 2044.50 level of the Daily Pivot. But stand prepared to exit or even reverse if we get appropriate price reversal patterns and/or Oscillator Divergence near important resistance levels. Our Normal High Range Projection level of 2074.25 or the Extended High Range Projection level of 2088.75 would be likely areas for such a reversal to take place, as would a test and failure of yesterday's high.

The March S&P E-Mini contract has fired NR4, 2 Day ROC Buy, and Momentum Pinball Sell signals for today's trading. The NR4 signal tells us to expect range expansion and a pickup in volatility. The 2 Day ROC Buy signal implies that today's principal trade direction should be to the upside. The Momentum Pinball Sell signal suggests that we'd want to consider shorts if price is strong enough to break the first hour low. Cycle Indicators (chart at right) appear as if a short term cyclical low has recently been marked, but the more immediate trend is to lower prices. The NR4 signal tells us to stand ready for a strong impulse move in either direction. Trade the break of yesterday's 2023.75 high to 1995.75 low range with a stop and reverse on the opposite side as the entry. Price action relative to today's 2013.00 Daily Pivot level may provide clues for earlier entry. The Momentum Pinball Sell signal suggests that we favor the short side if the first hour's low happens to be broken to the downside. To learn how to trade these setups every day Click Here!

The March S&P E-Mini contract has fired 90-10 Low Continuation and Momentum Pinball Buy signals for today's trading. The 90-10 Low Continuation signal is fired when the day's trading closes within the bottom 10% of the day's range. It tells us that Wednesday's late day move lower is likely to continue on into today. The Momentum Pinball Buy signal suggests that IF the first hour's high happens to be broken, the market is telling us something completely different than originally assessed, and we'd want to consider a long position. Cycle Indicators (chart at right) appear as if a short term cyclical top has recently been marked. Odds favor further downside in early morning trade. Sell the break of Wednesday's 2050.75 low with a stop just above the 2062.00 level of the Daily Pivot. Price weakness below the DP may provide clues for earlier entry. The Momentum Pinball Buy signal, however, tells us to change our bias to the upside on a break of the first hour high. Note that all US index futures contracts have fired similar Pattern Signals. This means that they can be traded in very similar fashion. To learn how to trade these setups every day Click Here!

The December S&P E-Mini contract has fired 2 Day ROC Buy, 90-10 High Continuation & Reversal, and Momentum Pinball Sell signals for today’s trading. The 2 Day ROC Buy signal implies that today's principal trade direction should be to the upside. The 90-10 High Continuation & Reversal signal tells us to look for morning follow through on the strong close, but to expect a likely reversal once the initial move has topped. The Momentum Pinball Sell signal suggests that IF the first hour's low happens to be broken, the market is telling us something completely different than originally assessed, and we'd want to consider a short position. Cycle Indicators (chart at right) have moved into a region where short term cyclical lows often form and the larger trend is to higher prices. Odds favor continued upside in today's early trading. Buy the break of yesterday's 1992.50 high, or even earlier if price demonstrates strength above the 1984.25 level of the Daily Pivot. But stand prepared to exit or even reverse if we get appropriate price reversal patterns and/or Oscillator Divergence near important resistance levels. Our Normal High Range Projection level of 2002.50 or the Extended High Range Projection level of 2011.25 would be likely areas for such a reversal to take place.

Testimonial

"I have found your service to not only be accurate but extremely educational. It is the perfect tool to use to create a winning game plan. All material is presented clearly and backed up with detailed explanations of the methodology being used.

In my ten years as a professional trader I've learned that there's no magic "system" but the tools taught in the Pattern Trapper combined with hard work will give you the "edge" that every trader desires."

Testimonial

"This is a rare gem of a course. Throughout you get the undeniable feeling of being guided by someone who possesses great learning, maturity and experience. This is the first time that I have felt I have truly got my money's worth (and more) on any course. Thank you. You have my greatest respect."

Testimonial

"I've taken a number of trading courses and seminars over the years, and have still managed to make all the classic mistakes and consistently lost money. But in the Pattern Trapper I found the one thing that had been missing from all of my previous trading efforts....Structure!  It is a completely new revelation to me, and it is at the core of your teachings. Nowhere else have I seen such a simple, logical blueprint for creating and implementing a consistent trading plan."

Testimonial

"Over the last three years I've taken many weekend courses given by numerous self-proclaimed experts. The information offered in the Pattern Trapper was found to be far superior. For the first time I see the same underlying structure in the market as the professional floor trader sees. Your course is well worth the price, and, I might add, well worth the time spent."

"You've done many of us a tremendous service by synthesizing so much material and years of experience into such a structured methodology for approaching the markets."

"You've probably heard it hundreds of times but... I am really enjoying your course! The way you present it enables me to grasp the concepts quickly. My first run through the entire course will be complete this weekend. I'm excited to watch the markets next week from an entirely different viewpoint!"

"This is perfect for day-trading because it offers a way of arriving at entry and exit points that make sense. As former Education Director at Lind-Waldock I can't think of one person who asked for a refund after taking the course. Call me for a personal consultation on how you can incorporate the Pattern Trapper into your current trading strategy: 312-399-1851."

Neal Weintraub - author of Tricks Of The Active Trader and Trading Chicago Style

Testimonial

"After 30 plus years of successful trading, why on earth would I take The Pattern Trapper trading course? After so many years it's so easy to get a bit lazy, take shortcuts and thereby get a bit careless now and then. I heard from other professional traders that I should take a look at Pattern Trapper and I am so glad I did.

For the professional, Pattern Trapper is a refresher course for trading with discipline. I am back to doing what made me successful and I thank your course and service for that. Pattern Trapper is now part of my daily routine and we all know that routine is so very important in trading consistently.

For those who want to learn the methods and discipline of trading, I recommend the Pattern Trapper as a worthwhile addition to your daily routine."
