I NEVER Believed in Technical Analysis Until I Realized This...

I NEVER Believed in Technical Analysis Until I Realized This...

When I was in MBA school back in the late 1980s (yeah that's me back then long before gray hair) it was drilled into me that a company’s stock price was always tied to its financial statements. You know, Profit and Loss statements, Balance Sheets, etc and all that fancy financial lingo. 

And so I went through much of my early adult life not really ever knowing otherwise. But along the way I had heard of this “technical analysis” stuff but considered it something like voodoo or witchcraft because as far as I knew it had absolutely nothing to do with the fundamentals of a company’s financial performance.

Until one day I saw a chart of the S&P 500 with standard deviations drawn on it based on the previous day’s settlement price. 
 
Hmmmm…. That looked interesting I thought.

This is What I'm Binge Watching this Weekend

This is What I'm Binge Watching this Weekend
I don't watch much TV, I'm not much of a movie person and when I do watch something I typically won't watch it more than once (but yeah I've seen the classics like the original Top Gun and the new one multiple times), I'm not a "gamer" however I would consider myself a binge watcher...

What I Like to Binge Watch:
  • Billions (the hit series on Showtime)
  • Shark Tank
  • Blue Bloods (my dad is a retired police officer)
  • Trading Education Courses...

Yes, Trading Education Courses!

See which ones...

May 30 Chart of the Day - S&P 500

May 30 Chart of the Day - S&P 500

While the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) was closed Monday in observance of Memorial Day the global after-hours electronic trading system (GLOBEX) opened as normal Sunday evening at 6pm eastern time.  And given the US debt ceiling headline news over the long weekend the S&P 500 futures ticker /ES gapped up about 20 points on the open to keep the bulls firmly in control.

On the current ES weekly chart I've only marked it up with Support/Resistance and Trend. Also known as basic structure. In this view traders can see that price often ping pongs between historical levels before proceeding in its next direction.

If you'd like to enroll in the same exact Introduction to Price Action Trading using Support/Resistance and Trend course that I took earlier in my trading career we're offering it at an incredibly low price this week revealed at this link.
