VIX Bollinger Band SPX System

1.  In what circumstances would rule 3 of apply? And, what do the arrows represent?

2.  In most cases the VIX BB SPX system rules do not trigger?  In fact only the last to VIX sells seem to have triggered but none of the BUY arrows fullfilled the rules?

My TF short continues to pay-off well.  Today's 2% underperformance vs NQs is more than expected. What is driving this new trend?

Any thoughts?

How they crushed silver yesterday

Posted by bgold on 1st of Mar 2012 at 08:05 am

Looks more like silver was subject stops being triggered of speculative longs players who were all running for the exit doors (or forced). That normally results in large volume spikes.  All these conspiracy theories don't get us anywhere.

Just focus on price action and patterns when trading silver (and everything else) and all will be fine Laughing

No reason to get emotional,

No reason to get emotional, just let the charts guide you.  ES is well supported at 1235.  Some would argue it is the neckline of H&S pattern (15')


World is a big place and BPT members live all over the world.  Just great to to get timely calls.  The market determines the timing of trades, not our sleeping hours! :-)

Steve/Matt, Keep the great work up. Thanks J (London,UK)

People seem to consider this fx pair the best to play markets participants risk appetite.  Strong JPY reflects reduction of risk while strong AUD the inverse. The pair as a result often perceived as the purest  pair to play the eb and flow in the markets. :-).

Have a look at PAAS.
