WELCOME

Welcome and thank you for visiting!

The charts, graphs and comments in my Trading Blog represent my technical analysis and observations of a variety of world markets...
* Major World Market Indices * Futures Markets * U.S. Sectors and ETFs * Commodities * U.S. Bonds * Forex

N.B.
* The content in my articles is time-sensitive. Each one shows the date and time (New York ET) that I publish them. By the time you read them, market conditions may be quite different than that which is described in my posts, and upon which my analyses are based at that time.
* My posts are also re-published by several other websites and I have no control as to when their editors do so, or for the accuracy in their editing and reproduction of my content.
* From time to time, I will add updated market information and charts to some of my articles, so it's worth checking back here occasionally for the latest analyses.

YM, ES, NQ & TF Monthly chart (note that price closed at the end of April above the neckline of a Daily IH&S...see Daily chart following):

YM, ES, NQ & TF 60 min (in essence, the Daily PP, which is the horizontal pink line, has held as support each day for the past three days):



April ended on a very bullish note, indeed. Generally, and on an intraday basis, I'll look for the same bullish pattern to continue next week for the YM, ES, NQ & TF, as noted in my comments on the 60 min chart, and drill down to lower timeframes to look for entries until this fails...assuming market internals are supporting this pattern each day.
