Internal forces in the S&P 500: New Update Video

This is just an update on using the internal forces of the market to time new positions. In this short video we look at the internal workings of the S&P 500 index.

We will be using in this example the free technical tools to help time a position. The number one tool we will be using is the Fibonacci retracement tool which just comes in beautifully in this example.

The second tool we are using is the Welles Wilder parabolic SAR. This tool is very useful for confirming entry and exit points when combined with our Fibonacci retracement tool.

The last tool is the MACD or as it is commonly called the MAC-D. This tool once again can help in timing the entry point using an intra-date chart.

Enjoy the video.

The video is free to watch and there is no need to register. I would love to get your feedback about this video on our blog.

All the best,

  1. Hi Adam,
    Thank you for all the great information. Regarding the trading triagles,I have heard you say several times that you use the monthly for trend and the weekly for entry/exit timing and I have also heard you say you use the monthly for trend and the daily for entry/exit timing. Can you briefly explain this?

    1. Robert,

      Thank you for your feedback.

      Let me be specific, for stocks we use a monthly trade triangle for trend and a weekly trade triangle for exit and entry points.

      For futures and Forex markets, we use the weekly trade triangle for trend and the daily trade triangle for timing entry and exit points.

      I'm not sure where you heard the monthly for trend and the daily for entry/exit timing. The information above is the recommended settings for filtering and trading in those particular markets.

      Hope this helps.

      All the best,

  2. Hi Adam. well, IF and IF the market goes back up from i suspect it will...into at least mid july to test the956 high or higher even...what will that say about your system. i am short the market and if necessary will wait patiently with my positions until the autumn...but your video today does not account for the sp500 to go up for some weeks from here....
    certainly the macro picture would predict that given the Q end and need for miniumum window dressing and into early July for cover of same.
    thanks as always Michael

    1. Michael,

      Thank you for your feedback.

      At the present time our trade triangle technology is on the sidelines in the S&P 500. Today's rally has not changed that position.

      As I have said before our trade triangle technology works over time. The video we put up today was an example of how you can use the internal forces of the market to put in a position.

      All the best,

  3. Capt Brian,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    There is no question that the move up in the equity markets have surprised a great many investors and traders alike. Have you followed our trade triangle technology which is our main source of determining market trends, you would've seen that we have been long based on our monthly trade triangles for quite some time. We recently had a signal to exit based on the weekly trade triangles.

    We use our monthly trade triangles to determine the trend. We then use our weekly triangles to enter and exit the markets once we have a position. We are very clear on this.

    When we do our other analysis it is to show you some of the dynamics that can occur in the marketplace. Such is the case with our analysis today of the internal workings of the S&P 500.

    If you follow our program with discipline and diversification you will come out ahead. Very soon will be releasing our Q2 '09 numbers. They will show exactly how we did in the last quarter.

    All the best,

  4. I follow many "tea leaf" situations, and have even invested heavily in software, and I still have to work for a living. I have watched your 'stuff' for a long time, and I want desparately for it to "work" for me. However, going back some time, your software has 'Expected' the S&P to go back to 766, and a few other etc's. Why do you not comment on the fact that the S&P is not at that level but much higher, and us poor working stiffs who still have to work because we cannot find software to show us the light?

    PLEASE comment on why the S&P is still at the 900 level, although you ignore the last few weeks of predicting a selloff. I have been sitting patiently in FAZ awaiting your genie to come out of the bottle.

    Again, please comment. I am being positive, looking for a good reason to send you money,not just read positive comments by unknown users. Unfortunately, I am a results oriented individual

  5. Good to have you back Adam. I am a relatively new subscriber and I have to say that MC has been a Godsend. I am making much fewer trades
    and the ones I do are much more logically based and less emotional.
    Usually in the past I would make a good trade but get spooked out before it could develop, only to see the trade resume and do what I had initially expected. (w/ me on the sidelines.)
    Your educational videos are very clear and powerful tools.
    Thank you for an excellent product and service.The best on the web.
