Art & Science of Active Trend Trading Free Report 8-29

Good Day Traders,

Overview & Highlights: We’ve made the turn and are now heading west on our road trip. I like TSLA to the downside and WOR to the upside. Each of the Indexes are still posturing for a move either up or down. The historic expectation for September is a solid pullback in preparation for the end of year rally.

Webinars: At Active Trend Trading we offer two webinars per week to provide training plus trade and market updates. See the schedule below for the next webinars.

General Market Observation: Today’s price action on all three Tracking Indexes was up but contained within last week’s range. This week last week’s highs and lows are the boundaries I’m watching. If we go with the typical downside bias of September, then look for potential downside trades if price move towards last week’s highs. The SPX looks weaker than the other two Indexes. A move up between 2186 and 2193 could be a retest and opportunity to the downside. On the other side of this plan would be a drop to the 8 week EMA or 2134 as a potential long side trigger. Each of the other Indexes provide similar levels for planning. If the highs are taken out after opening a downside trade close the position. If a long trade sets up and the lows are taken out, then close the long position.

The chart below is a weekly chart including today’s price action. Both oscillators look weak. The TSI has rolled over and crossed, but depending on this week could rebound. This is where we will watch for negative divergence on a weekly timeframe. This would be positive for a stronger pullback which would potentially provide a better set up to the upside in October. At this point the Indexes are posturing and trying to figure out which way to break.

The other scenario would be a continuation of the current sideways move up until the Fed report on September 21st.
