MARKET MECHANIC BIG PICTURE REPORT, BROUGHT TO YOU BY ODYSSEY TRADING GROUP FOR 02/13/ 2013
Welcome to theMarket Mechanic daily blog
TODAYS TALLY: $ 750.00+
TODAYS ACTION: The market gapped open higher, our software and system generated 1 profitable buy signal during this upturn. The rally put the market into an overbought condition and at 10:00 AM the 10 minute DTI went negative setting the stage for the subsequent sell off. Our software and system generated 3 profitable sell signals. After the sell off the market attempted a rally and a profitable buy signals was generated. The rally was short lived as the 10 minute DTI went negative again at 1:20 PM and our software and system generated 2 profitable sell signals as the market sold off.
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’s on the 60, 45 and 30 minute charts finished the day negative all others positive. Of the TIndexes only the 10 and 15 minute finished negative all others positive. With the longer term DTI’s in a negative state it looks like the market may sell off to digest some recent gains. Of not is the 60 minute DTI’s negative reading with prices on the 60 minute chart in the upper half of the Keltner Channel Band, this suggest that prices should move into the lower half of the Keltner Channel Band that would be between 1516 and 1511.
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.
