September S&P E-Mini Trading for Monday, June 18

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 September S&P 500 E-Mini contract has fired NR7, 2 Day ROC Buy, and 90-10 High Continuation & Reversal signals for today's trading. The NR7 signal tells us to expect range expansion and a pickup in volatility. The 2 Day ROC Buy signal implies that Monday's principle 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. Cycle Indicators (chart at right) have moved into a region where short term cyclical tops often form, and the larger trend is to lower prices. Although odds seem to favor the upside, the NR7 signal is telling us to stand prepared for a large impulse move in either direction. Trade the break of Friday's 1338.50 high to 1324.50 low range with a stop and reverse on the opposite side as the entry. Price action relative to today's 1333.50 Daily Pivot level may provide clues for earlier entry. If the initial break is to the upside the 90-10 High Continuation & Reversal signal is telling us to 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 1344.50 or the Extended High Range Projection level of 1349.75 would be likely areas for such a reversal to take place.

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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


"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."
