Swing trading software – How will does “action-reaction” tell us about the next move in the euro?

The  June Eurocurrency posted pivot highs of the April 15 and May 3rd reversal swing dates. Both dates marked the end of the corrective bounce and triggered a bearish reversal, followed by a lower market. The euro also posted a 570 point rally, during the two session following the May 6th reversal date. Since then, the euro has dropped to a new low and reached the up-sloping reaction line target objective,on the May 19th reversal date. The market  has completed a full cycle, with time and price coming together on May 19th. The euro rebounded off the reaction line suggesting the downward pressure may be over soon and could set up a possible bullish reversal pattern. For undated trade signals check out the  TMV Swing Trade report.

Swing trading strategy by John Crane – Dow Jones high projected by R-swing date.

The Dow futures plunged 994 points, to a low of 9840, before a short-covering rebound. The April 27th and May 3rd reversal dates identified the major highs that formed the bearish TR pattern in the Dow Jones futures that signaled the trend shift and triggered the sell.   However, today’s wide range day has skewed the cycle and it will need a few days to form a new signal pattern.

How the median line acts as a price magnet. [chart]

This Coffee chart is a great example how the median line (center line) acts like a magnet to attract price. How the market reacts to this line can be a very good indicator of future price action. A market that reaches the line quickly and with a wide range day will typically reverse at the line. On the other hand, a market that gradually moves toward the line in an orderly manner can penetrate the line slightly will usually trade on both sides of the line,  forming a series of small swing patterns, before breaking in direction of the origional trend and move towards next parallel line. Lastly, if the market surges through the line and closes with a major part of the trading range past the median, it will usually pullback to test the median line--offering one more opportunity to enter the market--before trading towards the new parallel line target objective.  Looking at the Coffee chart, you can see how the the market posted a wide range day on March 18, touched the line and dropped back to the lower support line before making another run at the median line. The market is currently trading along the line making higher highs.

The last thing of importance is when the market fails to reach the median line. This price action signifies a price failure can set up a major price move in the opposite direction. All of this things offer helpful insight into market behavior and  future market direction.

Soybeans forming a possible Bullish TR pattern. [chart]

Soybeans touched the ascending median line objective on March 22. The market stopped at the median line and posted two consecutive lower closes as it pulled back to the 20-day SMA. This is a possible bullish TR pattern forming inside the prior market swing. A trade above $9.76 1/2 would confirm the pattern and trigger a price move towards the reaction line. It is not time to make a move on this market, but it is a good market to put on your radar.

Is Silver poised for a another fall? [chart]

Silver has completed a 5-wave continution pattern that may mark the center of the longer-term downward cycle. The market is currently forming a bearish TR swing pattern and has retested the downward sloping parallel line as well as the 20- day SMA. A confirmation of the pattern will trigger the next downward slide to the descending median line or into the April 5 reversal swing date.

Short swing trade for Yen has reached the median line target objective! [chart]

The market has contnued to trade lower under heavy pressure and has reached the descending median line target objective at 1.0879.  This is the initial target objective and typically offers support after a wide range day. This is a good place to step out of the trade, bank the nice one-day gain and wait for a bounce to form a new reaction swing sell pattern.
