MARKET MECHANIC BIG PICTURE REPORT, BROUGHT TO YOU BY ODYSSEY TRADING GROUP FOR 02/12/ 2013
Welcome to theMarket Mechanic daily blog
TODAYS TALLY: $750.00 +
TODAYS ACTION : The market opened steady and then proceeded to give us a good tradable rally. Our software and system generated 4 profitable buy signals. This rally put the market into an overbought condition. The system generated 2 sell signals as the market sold off to alleviate this overbought condition.
The tally is determined is by taking the trade at the closing price of the 5 minute bar when the software and system generates a trading signal. We will trade 3 contracts per signal with the profit goal of 4 ticks or 1 point per trade. This profit goal is a minimum. The system will employ a 4 point disaster stop or a loss can be booked when the software and system generates a trade that would reverse our outstanding position. There will be times when the software and system generates what can best be called overlapping trading signals, in this case there will be only one trade booked.

AFTER THE CLOSE : The DTI’ all closed the day with negative readings except for the 60 minute DTI. All of the TIndexes finished the day positive with the exception of the 5 minute TIndex. With the DTI’s with mostly negative readings it looks like the market is looking to digest some of its recent gains with a sell off. The extent of the sell off is to be determined but with the overall state of the market bullish a sell off will produce a buying opportunity at some point. Timing the selloff and the buying opportunity we will leave to our software and system.

ABOUT THE MARKET MECHANIC:
The Market Mechanic has developed 3 proprietary indexes and oscillators: the Trend Index Aggressive (TI agg), the Delta Trend Index (DTI) and the Trend Index (TIndex). These 3 proprietary indicators combined with the Directional Movement Index (DMI), the Relative Strength Index (RSI) and the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) give us over thirty, high probability set ups that are used to day trade the emini S&P market. These indexes and oscillators are applied on time frames from 5 minutes to 60 minutes (5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 45 and 60) and these set ups are traded on all time frames. The final product of the combination of these proprietary and non proprietary oscillators and indexes is a mechanical system and methodology for identifying entry points into the market that completely sidelines emotion and allows its user to concentrate on the money management part of the trading equation.
The philosophy of the Market Mechanic is not to predict the market but to anticipate likely market scenarios that the market will produce on a daily basis and the best way to exploit these opportunities. These set ups are designed to profitably and consistently exploit these market scenarios.
Markets are opportunity generating machines; our software and methodology strive to take advantage of these opportunities as they arise and provide its users a consistent and reliable profit making trading set ups.
