I am a fan of adjusting trading techniques/game plans according to an assessment of the type of trading day.
Today I decided to touch on an educational feature rather than provide a certain market outlook. Many of my clients and blog readers know that when it comes to short-term trading I am a fan of adjusting your trading technique/game plan according to your assessment of the type of trading day that is developing in front of you. My opinion is that there are three main types of trading days:
1. Most common is two-sided trading action with swings up and down – this type of trading day is most suitable for using support and resistance levels along with overbought/oversold indicators. An example of such a trading day is reflected below with the mini Russell 2000 from March 2nd, 2015. Notice I use range bar charts which is a different educational topic I touched on before. On this chart I have overlaid some indicators I developed and like to use, free trial is availableIf you like this Newsletter, Please share!

Gold futures prices Thursday hit a nearly three-week high above $1,200.00. The yellow metal was boosted on short covering and fresh speculator buying--and even some safe-haven demand. Bullish remarks from the Federal Reserve chair and Greece debt worries are working in favor of the precious metals bulls. Technically, gold futures bears still have the overall near-term technical advantage. However, a four-week-old downtrend on the daily bar chart has been negated and prices have seen a bullish upside “breakout” from the recent sideways and choppy trading range. Bulls’ next upside near-term price breakout objective is to produce a close above solid technical resistance at the June high of $1,204.70. Bears' next near-term downside price breakout objective is closing prices below solid technical support at this week's low of $1,171.90. Stay tuned!
