1. Market Commentary
First trading day of October started negative for stock indices and it seems that a retest of 1070 lows from August is on the way.
October however, started very positive for my day-trading model/ ALGO.
What you see below is a screen shot from the last hour or so of trading on the mini SP. You will notice DIAMONDS markings on the chart. These markings appear BEFORE THE BAR STARTS and are an output of what I have been working for over two years in an attempt to find an indicator that is LEADING by nature and NOT LAGGING….obviously not all days are as powerful as what you see in the chart below but for me this has been the one day-trading tool I have the most confidence in so far.
The DIAMONDS ALGO and a few other studies are available for traders to try using sierra charts, where one can apply the ALGO on different markets and different time frames at anytime on their PC (my recommended method) and/or via my webinar, where one is limited to see the few charts I share during US stock market hours. You can have a trial of either one if you have NOT had one before.
