Using Technical Analysis for calendar spread trading

Discussion in 'Technical Analysis' started by Papa Lazarou, Mar 16, 2009.

  1. Hi all,

    There's probably a more specific location for this thread, but figured I'd get the best and most relevant coverage here in the TA section!

    Anyhow - obviously I can use technical analysis on flat price and patterns and areas of support and resistance are easy to identify, but was wondering whether people use it on calendar spreads? For example May June WTI.

    I know the old saying 'a chart is a chart is a chart', but I am really struggling to apply any useful analysis to spreads.

    Can people please post their experiences with Technical Analysis on spreads.

    I for one am struggling to find a decent intraday method for trading spreads on a purely technical basis... Your help, ideas, or examples of what you have found successful (and unsuccessful) would be appreciated.
