1)   In this afternoon's example of a Head & Shoulders pattern using a 4 tick range bar in the forward e-Mini S&P 500 electronic futures contract, the ES had been in an downtrend since Wednesday Februrary 3rd 3:10 pm. EDT.

2) A -1 Standard Deviation Downtick Ratio and a High Frequency Sell Surge ocurred just before the Head.  A reversal in MacDaddy occurs just after the head. These indications in the tape point to exhaustion.

3)   Our right shoulder with a left strengh of at least 5 occurs at 3:40p.m. EDT. The right shoulder is accompanied by a  -2 standard deviation Downtick ratio and a Red Spike in Macdaddy. Immediately after the Right shoulder MacDaddy resumes to the buying side. We also have another +1 Standard Deviation Uptick Ratio indication. These indications point to Conclusionary selling and new fuel. 

4)  additonal New fuel indications occur as the move progresses. MacDaddy is strong green after the right shoulder. MacDaddy shows a few resumption spikes as the move continues. We also have a plethora of long indications on the tape. Multiple indications of Long Strong Tape Imbalance, Long Order Book Swept, Long High-Frequency trading Buy Surge, +1& +2 Standard Deviation Uptick Ratios, +2 Standard Deviation Volume Ratios, and +2 Standard Deviation # or Trades Ratios occur.  These indications in the tape point to New Fuel.

Marvin Gaye once asked the simple question, "What's going on?" and the answer, at least for us in 2016, is 'a boatload'. 

As you may know, we released an early version of software for NinjaTrader 8 that took advantage of millisecond time stamps...and we now have a updated version ready for your review. 

This new version mitigates the earlier bugs, is slamming, and is available for you to tinker with. 

Also, a dual TradeOps beta was launched this morning, Monday 04-JAN-2016

There is a lot of nuance and detail in our new offerings which provide an insane amount of goodies for you to plow through. 

If you are interested in what's on deck for 2016 please carve out some time to invest in yourself and join us at noon (EST) on Friday 08-JAN-2015. 

Join us for a webinar on Jan 08, 2016 at 12:00 PM EST.
