Today June 06 -21, we have a busy morning. It's a good session though, and I'm using predictive TIMES.

So, for me I just wait until the opening bell at 8:30. I live in Latin America, so my time clock has 1 hour of difference.

If you have the software already, my setup for my predictive time signal software (TachEON Warp) is as follows:

• Swing: 10
• Origination Mode: Trading Days
• Source Days: 1-2-3-4
• Volatility Stop Offset ATR: 1,2

I excute my positions in 1 minute chart and watch the 3 min chart as the Anchor chart. I also use this chart to filter “the noise”, when I see to much signals closer in the 1 minute chart.

The price in the Asian session has its explosion move, so for my morning New York session the price is in range. Buyers are taking profits and reloading again, that’s my mindset for today.

The first possible entry was the puncture technique (“Puncture1”), but its to early for me. The second possible entry was the “puncture2” but I let I go. So, at 8:53 i open the trade with 4 contracts, the stop loss is 1 tick under the price line of the 8:53 signal, and I hold it.

I must confess that I was nervous with the pullback, but my 1,2 ATR stop offset setup gave me the required “room” to let the trade breathe.

I cover my first 2 contracts with 23,75 ticks. At that point I move my stop loss to breakeven point, and the pullback take out my position.

Then this.

The opening bell starts at 8:30, I let the price run, the movement is violent like always and i am aware of the 8:33 signal in the 3 min chart, so my initial bias can be correct. I left a buy limit order near the 120 EMA but the price in the pullback does not reach the order, so I let the price go.

I am over the 120 EMA. Where do I have the next bullish time signal?, at 8:53, so I have to wait until that time.



My daily profit target was achieved. $510 usd.

How I trade predictive time signals

It’s fascinating been exposed to the 30 largest companies of the US in the future market. The E-mini-Dow represents a portion of the standard Dow Jones industrial average futures. Three months from now I been trading the E-mini dow jones contract using predictive signals in 1 and 3 minutes timeframe.

I also have included in my 1-minute chart the 120 EMA of my 3 minute chart, just to have a visual zone, where the price can react.

The minimum price fluctuation specified by the CME group is $5 dollars. There are other markets more attractive that pays “more” per tick. But what fascinating me is the “behavior” of the market during the predictive times signals that the software gave me in advance. In my chart the yellow dots are selling pressure signals and the white dots are buying pressure signals, you can change the color if you want, it's just my preference.

In markets like NQ or ES I wait the second or third signal after the opening bell, But with the YM, I have tested and open trades during the opening bell. I have included in my trading plan that option only for the YM, I also open trades if I have a signal before like 8:21 or 8:25 and hold until the open.

I also check my economic calendar for the day, just to see the context of the day, but, honestly, I just execute the time cycles trading signals, that my system says to me.

As a result, I open 2 trades in the YM with 4 contracts each trade. I also knew that the housing starts and permits news was at 8:30.



Patiently I wait the reaction under the 3 min 120 EMA and make the entries when the candle close under the 1 min 120 EMA.

First trade 45 points x $5 x 4 contracts, the second one 100 point x $5 x 4 contracts. I was near the 3k today.

My stop loss changes from 32 pts (32 x $5 x 4=$640) based on the ATR (Average True Range) in that moment for 4 contracts to 64 points for the second trade. This ATR for me is too big, so I wait the candle close confirmation under the 120 EMA.

The predictive signals “aligned” with the swing highs and lows of the movements the institutions have done in the past. I know that, since yesterday.

Now the most beautiful for me, is, I make my day.

What can I do with the rest of my free time?

That’s Professional Trading. Time to think, for family, for me, and create new investments.
