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.

trigger; positive fast line on weekly time frame in order to anticipate the higher (monthly) time frame setting up a 3d criteria long setup.  $54.30 stop seems wide but it is a larger time frame.  I'm not a fan of the setup being that it's a red candle in a predominantly bear trend, but you have to wait it out and gauge momentum.

Gold has been oscillating around it's midpoint for 18 months now.

GC monthly

Potential 3d criteria setup on the GC monthly time frame.  Looking for the weekly fast line to turn positive.

long-term DXY

Quarterly chart of the U.S.Dollar Index going back to the 1970's.  Provided the gains hold through the end of the year we could be witness to a breakout on a very long-term time frame.
