Adequate Trading Internal SwingArms: Comments by Jose 4/19/2023

Please note that trading internal swingarms comes with a greater risk of experiencing a stop-out.

In general, the trend remains bullish (on a larger time scale). However, based on the pre-market charts, we observed multiple signals indicating resistance on the 15-minute and 1-hour timeframes, which was then confirmed on the 1-minute timeframe. Today, the only trade worth considering was the opening trade, which had the potential to yield around 30 points of profit, depending on when each trader exited their position within the 1-hour zones.

The newly established 15-minute sell zones are likely to be tested at some point. My orders have been placed at zone 4, which is where orders are typically filled, as you should already know. In this particular scenario, it is a high-pressure sell zone located within a freshly formed swing arm. There is no guesswork involved here.

Technical Analysis a Tool

As I analyze the market using various charts, it is important to note that technical analysis is not a guarantee of future results. It is a tool used to assess potential market movements and is subject to various external factors that may influence price action.

On the 2-day chart, we can observe that 4200 is acting as resistance, while 4100 is acting as support. The weekly sell zone is still exerting pressure on price movement, and it will take time for the market to break out of this range. A trigger event could initiate a move in either direction. However, it’s essential to note that the market is subject to external factors that may influence its movement.

On the 1-hour chart, we see that the market is targeting the 2-hour zone 4 at 4143, while the 4-hour POC is at 4133, which may act as a magnet for price. The 30-minute chart shows the regression channel breaking the 2 std Dev line targeting the 3 std dev. at 4144. The 15-minute high pressure shows that the 15 min swingarm trending lower and stepping lower with pressure. Probabilities have increased to the downside, indicating that the 2-hour zone hit may be likely, and a potential bounce may come after testing the zone.

The 1-minute chart shows bearish activity since the short entry at the market ‘open’ yesterday morning. This chart is used to confirm what we observe in the left columns.

It’s important to note that trading involves risks, and traders should always do their homework before making any investment decisions. Past performance is not indicative of future results, and the market is subject to external factors that may influence its movement.

At present, the market has shown a slingshot pattern from yesterday’s high to the current price. While we cannot predict when the bounce will occur, we can see some indication through the 28/6 breaking up. This could potentially be just a cycle or the start of a larger movement. To confirm the opportunity, we need to observe if the backtest holds or not.

Currently, the price is approaching zone 4s of the 2-hour chart, but it may need to backtest resistances before reaching it.

It’s worth noting that the current price is within the zones of the 2-hour swingarm, which typically act as both support and resistance levels. As such, it’s likely that the price will backtest the point of control (POC) of the 2-hour swingarm and potentially turn over to test the support level.

Discussing Trading Internal SwingArms

As we observe the one-minute chart, we can identify two trendlines that may offer resistance to the 15-minute zones, potentially causing the price to drop and target support levels. Therefore, it may not be prudent to rush into any long or short positions at the moment.

If a trader has a short position from yesterday’s high, then the break up of the 1-minute 28/9 would signal an exit point for the short position.

We have a BUY Setup from the 1-minute view supported by 1hr 2 STD DEV Trendline.
The current market conditions may not provide as clear of a setup as the previous day’s short position, where all the indicators lined up perfectly. It’s important to acknowledge that the market is constantly changing, and trading requires flexibility and the ability to adapt to new conditions.

By turning on both waves on the 1-minute chart, it’s possible to observe up-trending support to resistance waves above, which may slow down the price movement and potentially cause it to return to backtest support levels later.

Based on our analysis, we can see that the price is targeting zone 4 of the 2-hour chart. As time passes, the price may be tested by the 15-minute zones, and there’s a potential for it to drop and test the zones below. It’s important to remember that these zones are established based on past price movements and can act as both support and resistance levels.

Traders should wait for the price to reach these zones before making any buy or sell decisions. It’s important to avoid guessing or relying on emotions when trading.

If the 15-minute chart breaks up, it could open up the possibility of backtesting the 30-minute or 1-hour zones.

As of now for Russell, the price is still within the buy box, which may suggest that it’s still a potential buying opportunity. However, pressure failure is a concern and may impact the market movement.

If anyone decides to enter a short position from the initial touch of the zone, it’s likely that the position will be tested as the 1-minute waves continue bullish.

The 1 min support buy before opening gave the opportunity to those with more experience. Looking to the left can be a useful technique in analyzing the market. By examining the left side of the higher timeframe charts, traders can identify previous support and resistance levels, as well as other key indicators that may influence the current market conditions.

When observing the 1-minute chart, if the signal is supported by information on the left, such as the 2 standard deviation line, it may increase the probability of the signal being accurate.

The 1 Minute Continues to Step Up

It’s important to consider the slingshot pattern when analyzing the market and triggering signals. The slingshot pattern occurs when the price moves in one direction, then quickly reverse and moves in the opposite direction. This can create a potential buying or selling opportunity for traders.

When a signal is triggered, it’s crucial to consider whether it aligns with the slingshot pattern and whether the pattern is playing out in the market.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused significant disruptions to the global economy and financial markets. As a result, many people turned to trade as a way to make money during the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns. However, trading involves risks, and many inexperienced traders may have experienced losses as a result of their lack of experience and knowledge.

It’s crucial for traders to understand that trading requires proper research, analysis, and risk management. Inexperienced traders may benefit from seeking the advice of a financial advisor, taking online courses, or attending seminars to improve their skills and knowledge.

It’s also important to acknowledge that losses are a natural part of trading and should be expected. Traders should always have a plan in place for managing their risk and should never invest more than they can afford to lose.

Ultimately, the key to success in trading is discipline, patience, and a commitment to ongoing learning and improvement. Traders who are committed to these principles are more likely to achieve long-term success in the markets.

  • 1 Min steps up once more as it is testing zone 4 of the 15 min
  • Previous 1 min p144 failed. Buyers are in control.

It is all predictable if you understand the slingshot effect. The momentum generated by the 1-hour resistances towards the 2-hour supports is significant, such that a one-minute signal alone would be insufficient to halt it, necessitating support from other zones.

For those who have a good understanding of the system, I am curious to know if you currently have any pending orders in place and, if so, where they are located. Are they buy or sell orders or a combination of both? It is likely that most traders will have similar answers to this question.

During this morning’s pre-market live session, we talked about the Slingshot trading setup and its potential for a bounce as the session began. I’m curious to know how many people took advantage of the long entry setup. If you did, please write a comment with your response. If you didn’t, I would like to know your reasoning behind your decision. Either way is okay, I just want to understand your thought process.

If you answered the questions posted in the group this morning, you should have already taken a short position at 4187, with the stop at breaking even by now. The one-minute trend is still rising and could potentially test the area further. However, when the one-minute trend eventually reverses, it could present another opportunity to short the position but bear in mind that it may cycle overnight.

To those who are skeptical or have doubts about the effectiveness of this system, I urge you to review these charts.
