Day Trading the SP Futures with Initial S/R and the NYSE TICK


For instance, if the market moves up in the first 20 minutes of trading, touches the initial resistance zone, and then turns down, this implies that a good tradable downtrend move is likely to develop.

How strong that new trend becomes is market-dependent. As the market falls, its reaction to each new support zone gives an indication of how weak or strong the new downtrend is. If the market falls to initial support and breaks down through it without a stall or a bounce, it will probably continue down to the next level of support. But, if the market loses downside momentum near the initial support zone, the downtrend may well be over.

When price comes into a resistance or support area, the NYSE TICK is by far the best indicator of what price may do from this point.What is the "TICK"? The TICK is simply the difference between the number of stocks that last traded on an "up-tick" versus the number of stocks that last traded on a "down-tick". When the TICK reaches +1000, the market has reached a short term overbought extreme and the TICK reaches -1000, the market has reached a short term oversold extreme.

When the SP futures make a quick surge to a strong resistance zone, and then loses momentum at or near the zone, while concurrently the TICK registers an extreme high reading (usually over +1000), this sets you up for a high-probability short entry, with a hard stop just above the resistance zone.

These counter-trend trades "fade" (meaning to enter a trade against the trend) the intraday emotional extremes, and may come at the beginning of a new trend - giving you a chance to hit a "home run." More often, however, they become scalp trades that don't last long, sometimes less than a minute. Either way, they are high probability trades if you time your entry well.

It takes a lot of practice to time your entries just right on these trades, and you have to be ready to get out immediately (before yourhard stop is hit) if you sense that your edge has disappeared. It is difficult to sense when the edge (probability of success) of atrade is gone *before* the trade changes from a small gain to a small loss. Practice will help *if* you know what you're looking for.

Most traders believe you have to wait for your hard stops to be hit before you can know that a trade's edge is gone. This may be true for most traders, but it doesn't have to be true for you.
