Lean Hogs Trading for Thursday, January 10

The Pattern Trapper Market Update Blog is a companion piece to the FREE! Daily Pattern Signals Report.

For maximum benefit be sure to check out the On-Line Course.

 

The February Lean Hogs contract has fired 2 Day ROC Sell, 90-10 Low Continuation & Reversal, and Momentum Pinball Buy signals for today's trading. The 2 Day ROC Sell signal implies that today's principal trade direction should be to the downside. The 90-10 Low Continuation & Reversal signal tells us to look for morning follow through on the weak close, but to expect a likely reversal once the initial move has bottomed. 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) have moved into a region where short term cyclical tops often form, and the more immediate trend is to lower prices. Odds favor continued downside in today's early trading. Sell the break of yesterday's 84.175 low or even earlier if price demonstrates weakness below the 84.825 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 support levels. Our Normal Low Range Projection level of 83.250 or the Extended Low Range Projection level of 82.525 would be likely areas for such a reversal to take place, as would a test and failure of yesterday's low. The Momentum Pinball Buy signal tells us to assume an upside bias if the first hour high happens to be taken out.

Swiss Franc Trading for Tuesday, January 8

The Pattern Trapper Market Update Blog is a companion piece to the FREE! Daily Pattern Signals Report.

For maximum benefit be sure to check out the On-Line Course.

 

The March Swiss Franc contract has fired 90-10 High Continuation and Momentum Pinball Sell signals for today's trading. The 90-10 High Continuation signal is fired when the day's trading 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 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 larger trend is to higher prices. Odds favor further upside in early morning trade. Look for an opportunity to buy the break of yesterday's 1.0867 high with a stop just below the 1.0836 level of the Daily Pivot. Price strength above the Daily Pivot 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.

Soybean Oil Trading for Monday, January 7

The Pattern Trapper Market Update Blog is a companion piece to the FREE! Daily Pattern Signals Report.

For maximum benefit be sure to check out the On-Line Course.

 

The March Soybean Oil contract has fired 90-10 Low Continuation, High Breakout Continuation Setup, 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 Friday's late day move lower is likely to continue on into today. The High Breakout Continuation Setup signal implies significant upside IF Friday's high happens to be taken out. 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 Friday's 49.85 low with a stop just above the 50.21 level of the Daily Pivot. Price weakness below the DP may provide clues for earlier entry. The Momentum Pinball Buy signal tells us to change our bias to the upside on a break of the first hour high.

S&P E-Mini Trading for Thursday, January 3

The Pattern Trapper Market Update Blog is a companion piece to the FREE! Daily Pattern Signals Report.

For maximum benefit be sure to check out the On-Line Course.

 

The March S&P E-Mini contract has fired NR4, 90-10 High Continuation, and Momentum Pinball Sell signals for today's trading. The NR4 signal is triggered when the range of the day's trading is the narrowest of the last four days. It tells us to expect range expansion and a pickup in volatility with a likely breakout in store either today, or over the next few days. The 90-10 High Continuation signal tells us that yesterday's late day move higher is likely to continue on into today. 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, and both the larger and more immediate trends are to higher prices. Although odds seem to favor the upside, the NR4 signal tells us to stand prepared for an impulse move in either direction. Trade the break of yesterday's 1458.00 high to 1438.25 low range with a stop an reverse on the opposite side as the entry (if entered long then stop and reverse on the break of yesterday's low -if entered short then stop and reverse on the break of yesterday's high). Price action relative to today's 1451.00 Daily Pivot level may provide clues for earlier entry.

The March Feeder Cattle contract has fired 2 Day ROC Sell, 90-10 Low Continuation & Reversal, and High Breakout Continuation Setup signals for today's trading. The 2 Day ROC Sell signal implies that today's principal trade direction should be to the downside. The 90-10 Low Continuation & Reversal signal tells us to look for morning follow through on the weak close, but to expect a likely reversal once the initial move has bottomed.

But stand prepared to exit or even reverse if we get appropriate price reversal patterns and/or Oscillator Divergence near important support levels. Our Normal Low Range Projection level of 152.950 or the Extended Low Range Projection level of 152.350 would be likely areas for such a reversal to take place, as would a test and failure of yesterday's low.

British Pound Trading for Monday, December 24

The Pattern Trapper Market Update Blog is a companion piece to the FREE! Daily Pattern Signals Report.

For maximum benefit be sure to check out the On-Line Course.

 

The March British Pound contract has fired 90-10 Low Continuation & Reversal and Momentum Pinball Buy signals for today's trading. The 90-10 Low Continuation & Reversal signal tells us to look for morning follow through on the weak close, but to expect a likely reversal once the initial move has bottomed. The Momentum Pinball Buy signal suggests that we'd want to consider longs if price is strong enough to break the first hour high. Cycle Indicators (chart at right) appear as if a short term cyclical high has just been marked, but the more immediate trend is to higher prices. Odds favor continued downside in today's early trading. Look for an opportunity to sell the break of Friday's 1.6148 low, or even earlier if price demonstrates weakness below the 1.6194 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 support levels. Our Normal Low Range Projection level of 1.6093 or the Extended Low Range Projection level of 1.6044 would be likely areas for such a reversal to take place, as would a test and failure of yesterday's low. The Momentum Pinball Buy signal tells us we can consider the long side even sooner if the first hour's high happens to be broken to the upside.

For maximum benefit be sure to check out the On-Line Course.

 

The March Silver 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.

Cycle Indicators (chart at right) have moved into a region where short term cyclical lows often form, but both the larger and more immediate trends are to lower prices. Odds favor further downside in early morning trade. Look for an opportunity to sell the break of yesterday's 29.635 low with a stop just above the 30.195 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 if the day's first hour high happens to be taken out.

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."

"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."

"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."
