AFTER THE CLOSE: We said a couple of weeks ago, that the EURO ZONE story was not go away an time soon, this now goes double for this week. All we can do is watch our software and system and take the signals as they come. All of the TIndexes with the exception of the 5 minute finished negative on the day.The 10, 15, 20 and 30 minute DTI's all finished the day positive. it looks like we will start the day tomorrow with a mixed bag of indicators. We will be patient and wait for our opportunities to arise.
ABOUT THE MARKET MECHANIC:
The Market Mechanic has developed 3 proprietary indexes and oscillators: the Trend Index Aggressive (TI agg), the Delta Trend Index (DTI) and the Trend Index (TIndex). These 3 proprietary indicators combined with the Directional Movement Index (DMI), the Relative Strength Index (RSI) and the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) give us several distinct, high probability set ups that are used to day trade the emini S&P market. These indexes and oscillators are applied on time frames from 5 minutes to 60 minutes (5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 45 and 60) and these set ups are traded on all time frames. The final product of the combination of these proprietary and non proprietary oscillators and indexes is a mechanical system and methodology for identifying entry points into the market that completely sidelines emotion and allows its user to concentrate on the money management part of the trading equation.
The philosophy of the Market Mechanic is not to predict the market but to anticipate likely market scenarios that the market will produce on a daily basis and the best way to exploit these opportunities. These set ups are designed to profitably and consistently exploit these market scenarios.
Markets are opportunity generating machines; our software and methodology strive to take advantage of these opportunities as they arise and provide its users a consistent and reliable profit making trading set ups.
