The traders in our Price Action Mastery Course are learning first hand the power of the markets and in particular how technical analysis can benefit them.  

During the first week of April we identified a level for a long swing trade entry.  Since then we've been tracking and managing the trade.  Now, as price is approaching our bull profit targets it will be interesting to see how price reacts to what could be potential resistance.

Yes, that's about a 4000+ point hold to the long side.  This is what is taught in the course for both swing and shorter term trades.  It is not uncommon for us to be long in our swing account but short in our intraday account to capitalize on the levels of interest we've identified for the respective time frames.
