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!
Sold Klac breakeven
out ROOM -2.5....oww
VIX getting to the upside, plus NAZ move nowat bottom of the channel. Watching for indications of selling letting up over this week.
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.
Shorted QLGC at $48.56
but I'm a bit concerned...
how much lower can this market go?
Always more than you expect
looks like a good short to me...would add at 46, then on break of 44...
am short qcom, ebay, brcm...
added to qcom short at 38.50 today, short at 40.12 from last week
ebay shorted today at 55.00..wish i'd sold more but am self-financed.
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
What is the current system you're referring to ?
