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

missed it

Screwed up this 3d long entry on the SPY today.
The setup was more apparent on the 30-min time frame

I went long too early and didn't get back in when I should have :/
Should have gotten back in as indicated below, though it was difficult to chase a long in such a bearish market, especially without much of a pullback.  You never know when a move like this is going to happen.  The biggest disappointment was that I was actually anticipating a 3d setup for half the afternoon, then only to screw it up in the end is incredibly frustrating.

Anyway, the SPY daily left us with what appears to be a bear trap on a bullish divergence.  7% higher and I wouldn't be surprised to see new highs by the end of December :/

Oh yeah, and the SPY weekly is possibly setting up this 3d criteria as well (looking for green fast line and/or a seed wave on the Daily as trigger to entry).

The ES ALMOST made a tweezer low today.  This could rally over 80-points and STILL be bearish.

The NQ still hasn't broken its low, has a similar 3d setup on the weekly (looks better actually) and can rally 130-points and STILL be bearish!
