Decmeber Dow Jones  –In the September 3 rd issue I said the Dow Jones futures had traded down to the 20-day SMA, leading into Friday's (September 4 th ) projected reversal date. Due to the price action leading into the reversal date, if any rebound were to happen, it will most likely begin on Friday. A corrective rebound did indeed happen and the Dow Jones futures are currently trading over 150 points higher. Over the past three weeks, a potential bearish TR pattern (A high probability Trend Reversal pattern formed by a specific sequence of swing points) has been forming. The market is currently in the final stages of forming and confirming the TR pattern. – Sell the Dow Jones futures at 9339 stop with a stop loss at 9537. I will keep you abreast of any changes to this signal in this swing trading report or on my daily blog at .


September Japanese yen  –Long from 1.0880 – last price @ 1.0868 – The Yen traded above the prior swing high and to a new six-month high, but it was unable to hold the new high and eventually closed below the prior swing high. This is not negative price action, but it is important for the market to reach a new high in the next two days to show a solid confirmation of the bullish reaction swing and continue the upward trend. - Hold the long position with the stop loss at 1.0710.


October Crude oil – OPEC members will meet in Vienna on Wednesday, so far, it sounds like there will be no changes to the official production levels. On the other hand, Crude oil was trading over $3 higher for most of Tuesday's trading session as investors move into tangible commodities due to concern about the weakening dollar and the looming prospect of inflation. Chart wise, Crude oil is trading in a large wedge formation and building energy for a breakout. Although, the Crude has not tipped its hand as to the next direction, I will let the chart patterns and market structure show me the way. I'll continue to look for short-term swing trades, but the real move is still waiting to begin.

December Hogs  – Long from 47.62 – Last price @ 49.90 – Hog futures climbed to a new four-week high, as wholesale ham prices rebounded, raising speculation that U.S. pork exports may increase. Hold the long position and move the stop loss to 48.15.


November Soybeans – Short from $9.79 – last price @ $ 9.28 ½ - Soybeans reached a new low ($9.10 ½) one day before the projected reversal date and shy of the target objective. The cycle is still bearish into the September 9 reversal date so I'll hold the short position one more day and lower the stop loss to $9.39.


 December Gold – Technically, Gold breeched the $1,000 level early in the daily session, but failed to hold the gains and closed below $1,000. It seems the rally may have lost some momentum and needs a slight correction to build energy for a run at the Feb 20 th high of $1,015. The next reversal date is due on 9/14. A lower trade into this date should set up a bullish swing pattern. – Buy at $985.00 or lower with a stop loss at $973.50.

Swing trading and Reversal dates

Every good trading signal needs three key elements to be considered a successful swing-trading signal. Time, Price and Pattern . When these three come together, great things can happen. If you can improve your timing or price entry, it can enhance any trading method. That is what the Reversal Dates can do for you. They will identify when the market should react, and at what price level the market needs to be for this to happen. They will even tell you what the market has to do to confirm the trade. The first thing I do is, identify Time.


The Reversal Date Indicator consists of three parts. The first is Time . This is identified by the projected Reversal date and will indicate which markets are ready to react and when the reaction should occur . The most common misconception about the Reversal dates is the idea that the market must reverse on every signal date, which is not true. Instead, The Reversal Date itself helps to identify the market's reaction . A high percentage of the time, the market will reverse the current trend, but not always. A smaller percentage of the time, the market will form a “continuation pattern,” indicating the market will likely continue in the same direction as the prevailing trend. Often this will occur during a consolidation or after a very small correction.


Once the Reversal date has been identified, the next thing to do is monitor the price. If the market is making a new high/low, or if it is trading inside a buy/sell window, then the second component of a trade signal is in place. You now have Time  and Price working together. For most traders, that will be enough, but the Reversal Date Indicator takes it one step further.


After extensive research into price patterns, I have identified specific price patterns, which occur during reversal timing. These patterns can be used to confirm the market reversals or market continuations . When, and only when, these three components are all working together, will there be a swing trade signal generated.
