  1. You must be referring to intraday charts. I am keying off the dailies.

    Although I mostly daytrade stocks and futures, here are some of my swing trades:

    short the SP since 4/1 at 1143.3
    short INFY since 4/1 at 64.46

    I also got a signal to go short the DIA this morning, but it was a bad print at 100.33 (never got there.) Despite tons of $$ I'm paying to Realtick, I still get those occasionally and it REALly TICs me off! :)

    Bought MLNM at $20.75

    Aggressive play as the MACD is trending down, but I've been waiting patiently to get back into it after selling at $24.50 a couple weeks ago.

    Will place my stop at $19.95.

    hourly measured move on qlgc short is down at 46ish which conicides with daily support...

    My current system only looks at price movement, ligns up 15, 5 and 1 min charts, dunks the whole mess in a MACD, Stoch, OBV, etc soup, stirs (faster in am and slower in pm) and then rings the bell.

    Wish I had a "pattern recognition" spoon to take something out (e.g., when daily support is met or a double bottm is formed) before the next, trend-driven bell :)
