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.

Another Quarter closed

Q1 in the books and so I thought I'd post some Quarterly charts to give some long-term perspective, most/many charts are in log format:

Dow Jones Industrial Average (log-chart)

S&P500 (log format)

U.S. Dollar Index

Nasdaq Composite Index (log)

Dow Jones Transportation Index (log)

Dow Jones Utilities Index (log) -

Russell200 Index (log, though not really necessary)

S&P400 Midcap Index (log, though not really necessary)

30yr Tbond


Banking Index; not sure if this has been around long enough to include on a Quarterly basis, but I wanted to include the banks

Gold...unfortunately I don't have very much historical data on Gold.  (log chart)



Soybeans - Interesting range compression compared to that of the early 2000's

Corn - Really cool chart :)

Natural Gas -

Now for some stocks (do let me know if I left/leave something out)

AAPL (log)

IBM  -




Just for the heck of it I've included the VIX and TICK below, personally I can stare at the TICK chart for a while and likely read too far into it :)
