Review of Concepts, a Direction Starts Chart and Possibilities

  • Red background for potential loss, defined and quantified.
  • Yellow background for possible sideways condition with estimates.
  • Green background for market continuing direction.

===================================================================

Philosophy is to identify the cause of direction. Proprietary criteria, definitions and logic are given to a computer which deciphers price, time and volume data, calculates Direction Starts and four types of activity. Computer also places the orders. The four types of activity are categorized and encoded as:

Upward Buying = Buying,
Downward Selling = Selling,
High Selling = HS
Low Buying = LB

  • White vertical line identifies the new day.
  • Green line/price highlights the start of a potential segment (trend).
  • Blue line/price is for tolerance and getting out.
  • Basic Segment Sequence: 1) a Start, 2) market continues direction or not, 3) go flat.
  • Upward segments are caused by and feature, Buying that dominates selling. Not all Buying starts continue.
  • Downward segments are caused by and feature, Selling that dominates buying. Not all Selling starts continue.
  • Pacific time and date of the new day are below.

===================================================================

Which markets do you want to trade and why?
What problems have you experienced with markets?
Have you identified what you need to improve?

1) You might have a busy schedule, projects to work on and simply don't have time to study and monitor markets. 2) Some people don't have a computer connected to receive and programmed to analyze streaming data from the exchanges. 3) And some people might not have the specialized knowledge, including enough observations and research of market understanding, market logic and programming.

Without all three Ts: Time + Tools + Training, what kind of market timing have you had? Electronic Computer Direction Starts by USAFutures

Moreover, what might be an alternative to you being fixated, stuck at your monitor(s) looking like an air traffic controller? With demands for your attention and perhaps attendance, how can you be more consistent and precise at getting in when new trends start?
