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 toddstrade@gmail.com
I am always open to questions, comments, or suggestions on how to improve this blog.

  So, on a day when Advancers/Decliners are severely out of balance, the TICK starts of with -1000 and can barely get back to zero, and the rest of the breadth indicators are flashing sell, just turn the squiggly line indicator off.
What were some reasonable targets to aim for?
Fib Retracement as measured between the PDC and today's Open had a great proportion:
and the Fib retracement off of the PDH & PDL had similar results
