The setups I include on this blog are used in conjunction with the 3/10macd and the criteria I ascribe to it as a way to alert me to an existing condition of price. The key concept to take away from this blog is that I try to anticipate what will happen on the higher time frame by using a faster time frame to trigger the trade setup. I do not trade a "system" I use two indicators to clue me in to price conditions. Please read the Disclaimer located in the sidebar of this site. I can be contacted via email at
I am always open to questions, comments, or suggestions on how to improve this blog.

the Obvious

SPY broke down from an ascending wedgeThere's a clear range of where the buyers and sellers are lined up
and there's a clear consolidation pattern developing that can resolve quickly (and should resolve quickly and with volatility, as one side will have to cover).A slightly bigger picture shows the "Death Cross" setup. When a moving average cross happens, typically the first trade in the direction of the crossover is to fade the price pullback. In this case, the 50-MA crossed under the 200-day, price pulled back to the 200-MA then continued to sell-off. It's sketchy down below from here because of the double-bottom potential.Then, on the weekly, there's this Bullish Wolfe Wave setup taking shape...
