Four Tricks From Chat How We Confirmed A Bull Market
|Photo by Mike Mozart but see if you can discover through this report why we are showing you a Whopper.|
Does anybody remember Friday or Monday? Goldman’s and Citron’s calls were supposed to crash markets. It’s ancient history already but there were about a million calls for a correction.
We want to review some chat quotes we had to Pro Traders on Monday in the wee-pre-market hours as we made a gameplan for the coming day.
From these quotes you’ll discover a few of our secrets how we use daily “action” to spot and confirm medium-term trends.
First What’s Action?
Action is the trading art of comparing what is “supposed” to happen versus what does happen. It's a mindset. The news isn't the only piece of information.
When you have news and reports you’d expect markets or stocks to move in a particular direction. If they are you have confirmation. If not they are telling you a powerful story that something is underlying pushing the other way.
We love to use action and Friday and Monday had big tell-tale signs of amazing bullish action.
How We Used Intraday To Confirm Our Medium Term Entry
Here's what we said on chat Monday, June 12, 2017: 6:02 AM EDT as bearish sentiment was sky high in the news and markets. Futures were looking down.
“A nice way to enter to make sure you’re not catching a falling knife is to see it move up higher than the first 30 minute range. Then see that the close closes higher than the open or not far off. This way you know the market’s not just going straight down on you.”
First, full disclosure, we did not write the chat nearly that clean. It's been mildly edited.
Let’s review the chart in relation to what we said still groggy after a few mochaccinos.
Many can tell you to buy or sell or be bullish but really to have confidence each day muscling through volatility, it takes a proper strategy, we think, short, medium and long term.
First Action Trick: Let’s first review the “30 minute range.”
We're now going to analyze our above quote.
|Charts By Interactive Brokers|
We were getting more bullish on NASDAQ ETF $QQQ Monday morning. As long as you saw the market not falling lower than the first 30 minutes you have a little more confidence to enter.
For QQQ it turned out that the low of the day was in that first thirty minutes. That was something we were looking for several hours previously in our gameplan.
Second Action Trick: Let’s review “closes higher than the open.”
Here you see QQQ giving you a second confirmation on Monday with the close higher than the open. The bearishness eased through the day.
Third Action Trick: Later In The Day: Boring Action Is Bullish
And for good measure we’re going to give you a third secret we said during the day.
On June 12, 2017: 2:33 PM EDT we pointed out the following,
“Slow boring follow through: bullish.”
We noted where we made the "boring" comment above.
The market wasn't doing anything and definitely wasn't living up to the hype of a big bearish day.
Fourth Action Trick: SPY Hardly Down, Are You Joking?
From the close on Thursday to the close on Monday the S&P 500 ETF SPY went from 243.78 to 243.36. It was down a whopping 40 cents.
Here's a Whopper.
After all of that reported "chaos" SPY was down $.40. That’s not so bad. That's a sign of "bad news" "good action." That's bullish.
For Fun, Other Elazar Quotes From Monday's Chat On Pro Trader
“Look there’s going to be a million down days. The market is so not used to having even one down day. It’s a little nuts.”
“The dip spooks people. Then it goes up. Then they miss it. Then they say [we’ll catch the] next dip and same thing.”
“These down moves have been opportunities but still you want to see the market not falling. Not falling is good. Open and close. That’s the gameplan that you can manage with a clear head.”
We had a million quotes on chat on Monday's Pro Trader, as we do most days. You can lean on us. That’s what we’re here for.
In the meantime, hope you enjoyed some of our "action" trading tricks.
