Swing Trading with Market Timing intelligence

The most important element of a successful swing trading approach is market timing of both entry and exits. In this educational newsletter, you will learn to predict, identify, and trade short-term swing trading opportunities using a unique swing trading “market timing intelligence” methodology. Veteran futures trader and best-selling author John Crane combines his highly acclaimed “Action/Reaction” market timing methods with a selective set of Elliott Wave and Fibonacci principles to analyze the market action and project future market swings.

Swing trading and Reversal dates

Every good trading signal needs three key elements to be considered a successful swing-trading signal, Time, Price and Pattern. When these three come together, great things can happen. If you can improve your timing or price entry, it can enhance any trading method.  That is what the Reversal Dates can do for you. They will identify when the market should react, and at what price level the market needs to be for this to happen. They will even tell you what the market has to do to confirm the trade.  The first thing I do is, identify Time.

TIME

The Reversal Date Indicator consists of three parts.  The first is Time. This is identified by the projected Reversal date and will indicate which markets are ready to react and when the reaction should occur. The most common misconception about the Reversal dates is the idea that the market must reverse on every signal date, which is not true.  Instead, the Reversal Date itself helps to identify the market’s reaction. A high percentage of the time, the market will reverse the current trend, but not always. A smaller percentage of the time, the market will form a “continuation pattern,” indicating the market will likely continue in the same direction as the prevailing trend. Often this will occur during a consolidation or after a very small correction.

PRICE

Once the Reversal date has been identified, the next thing to do is monitor the price. If the market is making a new high/low, or if it is trading inside a buy/sell window, then the second component of a trade signal is in place. You now have Time and Price working together. For most traders, that will be enough, but the Reversal Date Indicator takes it one step further.

PATTERN

After extensive research into price patterns, I have identified specific price patterns, which occur during reversal timing. These patterns can be used to confirm the market reversals or market continuations. When and only when, these three components are all working together, will there be a swing trade signal generated.

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 software – How will Soybeans react after reaching projected target?

Twenty days after posting a high near the April 21st reversal date, July Soybeans reached the up-sloping reaction target line. The daily low of $9.31 tested the reaction line before finding support and rebounding to unchanged. This completes the five-wave cycle as the Soybeans reach the target objective–projected two weeks in advance–on the projected reversal date. While the long-term trend is still bearish, the short-term cycle suggests a possible corrective rebound from this level. I’ll have current updates in the TMV Swing Trade report.

Swing Trading Software for Trading Currencies.

Looking for a trading software program to help you trade the volatile currency markets? You may want to consider the RT Swing Trader. The program signals are pattern based so that it uses the markets own price action to identify “sweet spots” where the markets are building energy inside a trend that precede explosive market moves. Once the signal has been triggered the program will make time and price projection using the unique “action-reaction” theory to project price target objectives as well as the duration of the trade. Intelligent and dynamic protective stops are automatically adjusted based off market direction, price range and momentum, therefore, protective stops are determined by actual market conditions and are not arbitrary. The program can adjust to market conditions because the algorithms are based on timeless and universal fundamental  principles of the market, therefore it can work under any market conditions and or any timeframe.

“Action – Reaction” swing trading strategy in Gold.

This chart offers a good example of a TC pattern (Trend Continuation) in the June Gold. After touched the ascending median line on April 12th, Gold began a corrective pull back into the April 19th reversal date and posted a low at $1124.50, where Gold found support from the up-sloping lower parallel line and the 20- day SMA.  The reversal date confirmed the low pivot and the beginnng of a new upward leg. The price swing between April 14 and April 19 formed the TC pattern and could also be used to make the future time and price porjection that identified May 17th as the future reversal date and put the reaction line target objective at the $1250.00 price level. Gold continued the rally off the April 19th reversal date and reached a high of $1249.70 on Friday, April 14, one day before the date, projected three weeks earlier. To learn more about this type of swing trading strategies using the “action-reaction” method with reversal dates you can read “Unlocking Wealth, Secret to Market Timing.

Bullish reaction swing sets up buy for July Silver.

A bullish reaction swing has formed after Silver dipped down to $17.85 on April 28th. The market traded had traded through the 20-day SMA on the decline, but reversed and traded up through the 20- day SMA on Thursday. The “double cross” pattern enhances the potential buy signal provided by the bullish reaction swing signal pattern. This pattern could be the precursor to a new bullish leg in the Silver. Check the new issue of the Traders Market Views Swing Trade Report for updated recommendations.

Reaction swing triggers buy signal for June Heating oil.

June Heating oil rallied off the low, posted on the April 28 reversal swing date. The market  had dipped down into the reversal date, with two lower closes, leading into the pivot low. After finding support from the lower up-sloping action line, Heating oil ended the corrective pullback and turned higher. The new  upward thrust is pushing the market out of the cconsolidation pattern where it has been trading over the past three weeks. The market should have built up enough energy to break out of the pattern and begin the new upward swing into the next reversal date on May 7th. This reaction swing pattern also projects a price target objective at 2.4250.

How to find and use the reaction swing pattern to make future Time and Price projections for swign trading is covered in the book “Unlocking Wealth, Secret to Market Timing.”

Swing Trade signal for Soybeans reaches target objective! [chart]

On April 5th, July Soybeans posted a low close of $945 1/4 inside the 60% buy window. Two days later,  Soybeans rallied out of the buy window and traded through the trigger price for a long entry signal. The reverse/forward count projected a new upward price swing of twelve days from the low close from April 5th. I also used the count to project a target objective at the down-sloping reaction (red) line. After the buy signal was triggered, July Soybeans rallied over 60 cents into the April 21st reversal date and touched the down sloping reaction line - at $10.17 – on the following  (trail) day. Soybeans reversed at the reaction line and are currently trading sharply lower. By understanding how to use the “action-reaction” price behavior I could have  identified the target objectives two weeks in advance. To learn more about this trading technique read “Unlocking Wealth, Secret to Market Timing”.
