Hello traders. I been trading options, buying calls and puts nothing fancy, holding them max for a week or less. I been straggling with my entry points, and im looking for some kind of oscillator or something to give me confirmation on my entries. Can someone please recommend me anything you been using with success that works?

thank you very much in advance

Why would anyone tell you what works, let alone post it in a public forum?

Besides, this topic belongs in the Technical Analysis forum and not in the Options forum since your question has nothing to do with options.

I could probably answer your question, but I'd rather let you find out the answer yourself.

One thing I've used for many many years is a 10 day moving average of the NYSE TRIN vs. a 50 moving average.

When the market is oversold I tend to look more for bullish plays, and when overbought I'll look for the bearish.

It's too bad that most on ET are "...the glass is half empty types.." The internet reminds me of Television when it first came out. TV was heralded as a new and fantastic tool for education and the dissemination of information. Instead we got commercials and "I Love Lucy" or "Married with Children".
Same with the internet, " ....A fantastic tool that will usher in a new era for education and the exchange of information and ideas...." What we got was pop-ups, cookies, and for the most part here on ET, brainless post like this:

How about it guys, How's it feel to rank right up there in intellectual status equal to "Howdy Doody" and "Lost in Space"
