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 trend is up.
15-min chart the momentum push was the lowest reading in over a week while the swing low was higher than the previous day (just above the PDH).  It's a reverse divergence, but I believe LBR coined in a "Sling Buy" setup.  The 15-min hammer candle doesn't get any prettier.  While the 5-min trigger could have been a 3/10 macd Fast Line/Slow Line crossover, but a better entry was following the consolidation off the bottom as price formed the seed wave.
Half target was the 50% entension of the seed wave which coincided with the breakdown point of the selloff.
100% and 200% extensions of the seed wave were both met the next day.
