    Some "fine print" in President Obama's climate plan could increase costs for segments of the natgas industry:

    #5…brodway, It appears that my post with the parameters has been deleted…I've posted it below. The #4 chart is difficult to see abut if I change the format it reduces the number of trades shown. My suggestion is to put the parameters below onto a chart using whatever chart package you use and the buys and sells will align with the chart posted in #4.

    Basic Swing Trade Chart setup.

    Daily chart of SPY with 10 day MA and 200 Day MA, 10 Day Williams %R with oversold at -85 and overbought at -10.

     All indicators for basic setup can be found in most charting packages. Here it is at StockCharts.com

    http://stockcharts.com/h-sc/ui?s=SPY&p=D&yr=1&mn=0&dy=0&id=p43206032565

     

     

    Basic rules.

    Long entry on a price close > 200 MA and 10 Day %R closing below oversold.

    Longs exit with either a close >the 10 MA or 10 Day %R > midpoint, on the next open. (Subject to market conditions you may want to hold longer or take partial profits.)

    Short entry on a close < 200 MA and 10 Day % R closing above overbought.

    Short exit on a close below either the 10 MA or 10 Day %R midpoint. Exit at the close.

     

     There are a couple of other tweaks and filters using data and software not available for free that I use to up the performance but the core of the idea is above. I’ll pass those signals along in the ZLT room as they occur. I’ll leave it to you to find ways to enhance the setup that suits your needs. Using longer term breadth trends and POMO are areas that have enhanced  performance for me. One area ripe for research and testing is when to extend the holding period if the market appears to be in a longer term trend.  The indicator levels above are just a starting point. DaveH, one of ZLT site members has come up with different levels that produce better gains. Biggest determinate of success though isn’t the setup but the willingness to take each trade when according to all reports the world is falling apart.

    The most valuable use of this idea for me has been to quantifiably show when market risk of entry is low in uptrends and when market risk is highest in bear markets.

    Long trades Since 1994. % Profitable 81.29% with 4.24 Profit Factor 139 trades

    Short trades. 72.50% 3.15 Profit Factor 76 Trades

    If you have questions, fire away.

    #6…there may be some confusion with %R as it is plotted differently on various charting packages. You'' have to adjust the below/above statement in the parameters above to fit how the %R is graphed for you. In Tradestation it is below the oversold that would be used for a long entry…at Stockcharts.com %R is reversed and oversold is reversed and is considered oversold when above the oversold level…..  the rules for Stockcharts.com would be…

    Basic rules.

    Long entry on a price close > 200 MA and 10 Day %R closing above oversold.

    Longs exit with either a close >the 10 MA or 10 Day %R < midpoint, on the next open. (Subject to market conditions you may want to hold longer or take partial profits.)

    Short entry on a close < 200 MA and 10 Day % R closing below overbought.

    Short exit on a close below either the 10 MA or >10 Day %R midpoint. Exit at the close.
