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.

Continuation move off of the previous day's late afternoon momentum.
Some points to observe:
1). Opening gap-fill followed by a rally, notice how the A/D pulls back to the zero line, finding support.
2). First failed higher high & low on a waning TICK & A/D line.
3). Price pulls back to vwap on an extreme negative TICK reading (also coinciding with a 50% retracement of the opening momentum, as well as a pullback in the A/D line to +200 support, which is a bit better than neutral, a moderately bullish breadth. 
4). Price attempts to extend the rally but fails at the initial lower high's breakdown point.
5). A higher low for both price and TICK at vwap (which coincides with a previous higher low & breakout point).  Also continued support at the +200 A/D line leading to a triangle in price.
6). Triangle fails to break higher and A/D line fails to hold support (which then turns to resistance).  Leading to an A-B-C corrective wave.
7). Lower lows in TICK higher lows in price.  A seed wave forms on a +TICK divergence (support at the A/D zero-line as well).
8) Price rallies higher to test upward breakdown levels (shorts covering as a higher low becomes more confirmed).  Also, the A/D line runs back to +200 where it pulls back off of (on an extreme +TICK reading), then attempts to break again, but fails.  Price settles nearly to the penny of where it opened.  Nothing gained, nothing lost and yet consisting of so much drama.
