Unveiling the Future: Leveraging Historical Patterns and Modern Computers for Predictive Insights

The study of history has always provided valuable insights into the present and future. In the realm of finance, historical patterns serve as a treasure trove of information for predicting future market trends. With the advent of modern computers and advanced data analysis techniques, harnessing the power of historical patterns has reached new heights. In this blog post, we will explore how historical patterns, in combination with modern computing capabilities, can be leveraged to make accurate predictions about the future of financial markets.

Big Data and Machine Learning
Modern computers equipped with powerful processors and vast storage capabilities enable the analysis of massive amounts of data. By applying machine learning algorithms to historical market data, computers can identify intricate patterns that may go unnoticed by human analysts. These algorithms can uncover complex relationships, correlations, and non-linear trends, empowering investors to make more precise predictions and informed investment decisions.

Algorithmic Trading
Algorithmic trading relies on sophisticated computer programs that automatically execute trades based on predefined rules and strategies. These algorithms can incorporate historical patterns, technical indicators, and market data to generate buy and sell signals with minimal human intervention. By leveraging the computational power of modern computers, algorithmic trading systems can identify and act upon market patterns in real-time, potentially capitalizing on fleeting opportunities.

High-Frequency Trading
High-frequency trading (HFT) utilizes ultra-fast computers and advanced algorithms to execute trades within fractions of a second. These systems can analyze historical patterns and real-time market data simultaneously, enabling traders to capitalize on short-term price discrepancies and exploit market inefficiencies. By leveraging the speed and computational capabilities of modern computers, HFT firms aim to gain a competitive edge in predicting and reacting to market movements.

Data Visualization and Pattern Recognition
Modern computers enable the visualization of complex data sets, allowing analysts to identify patterns visually. Data visualization tools can plot historical market data, overlay technical indicators, and display patterns such as support and resistance levels or trend lines. These visual representations enhance the human ability to recognize and interpret patterns, supporting decision-making processes and enabling investors to anticipate future market trends.

Combining historical patterns with modern computing capabilities revolutionizes the way we predict financial markets. The immense processing power, machine learning algorithms, algorithmic trading systems, and data visualization tools available today empower investors and analysts to uncover hidden patterns, make accurate predictions, and capitalize on market opportunities. However, it is important to remember that human judgment and expertise are still essential in interpreting the insights provided by computers. The symbiotic relationship between historical patterns and modern computers holds immense potential for navigating the dynamic landscape of finance and unlocking the future of market prediction.

Trading GANN times on the NASDAQ

Today im trading the E-mini Nasdaq

I have a daily routine in trading. 30 minutes before getting visual contact with my charts. I take my time to meditate with music, in my desktop chair and visualize my entry patterns. Remember that my trading is based on predictive signals, so y anticipates in my mind the Patterns 1 and 2 and the inverted patterns 3 and 4 specifically.

For the E-mini Nasdaq futures market, the price per tick specified by the CME Group is $20 per tick. Always you read my articles, you can find my routine before opening bell as follows:

1. Read my economic calendar.
2. Check the range before the opening bell. Accumulation zone
3. And identify possible range zones y the future. Closer signals in the Warp panel
4. Ready with my ATM of 3 or 4 contracts
5. 3 trades per day

This is my 3minute chart and determine the trend tendency from the Asian session as Bearish. After a big move trend there is always a “pause”; So for today for me I’m waiting before the opening bell, that the Price closes the gap to the 120 EMA, and validate a possible bearish entry.

Trading leading GANN times on the Emini Nasdaq

When the markets open, I wait for a candle that closes under the 120 EMA. My Stop Loss is 1 tick above that candle. At 8:36 that candle appears and I activate the trade. The size of the candle determines $300 of stop loss, that is ok for me and my actual capital...

Leading Predictive Times help guide my trades

Even if I have the 8:37 timestamp signal so closer. In my mind I ignore it. Why?

Because in my 3 minute chart I have enough time space between 8:39 through 8:51. That’s a personal way to reduce the noise, when I found to much closer signals in 1 minute. I can wait for leading predictive times which have more time between them, for longer trades to develop with potentially more profit. 

Watch how the times setup perfectly for my trade

The next step is the manage the trade so in the last 1 min chart shown above I have a window between 8:42 and 8:51 so I hold the trade until that time. I alternate visually between the 2 charts. I also trail my stop in the big picture chart using one candle closed behind the active candle price.

Managing the trade

The next move was so hard that closes my trade in profit.  I ended my day with 3x my personal daily profit. That is $1.640

Taking profit


Good trading, everyone!

Perfection is the enemy of execution

By Juan Vega, contributing author and trader / Bogota, Columbia

When you are using warp software, there are sometimes when you cannot find the predictive times signals “aligned”.

As a trader, at the beginning I always want the perfect dot in the swing highs and swing lows, telling me, the market is ready, perfect, just execute! But after several failures I asked for help and paid for learning “inversed patterns”. I also have paid for the trading room 2 or 3 years ago, to learn more and ask more, maybe my first 2 or 3 months.
I trade with 2 charts always: My fast time frame chart in 1 minute and my anchor chart in 3 minutes. Sometimes I check the warp panel to identify messy time signals. So, when I see too much signals closer each other, defining me the “range” type market, I use my 3 minute chart more often. My trading session hours are from 7:30 until 11:00am max. I trade the New York Session that its perfect for me.

Today I trade Gold futures market, who pays $10 per tick. And my plan is simple:

1. Read my economic calendar
2. Check the range before the opening bell. Accumulation zone
3. And identify possible range zones y the future. Closer signals in the Warp panel
4. Ready with my ATM of 3 or 4 contracts
5. 3 trades per day


Watching predictive indicator for trade entries

At the left I identify the range before, 8:20, so at 8:31 I did not see any violence in the price or a clue to validate my entry. So I said, " if the candle closes over the 120 EMA (the blue one) I open a trade."

And it did it.

Watching what happens at the predictive times

If you check at that time, I have a yellow dot (08:41) Signal. When you have this situation, I just take the dot as an objective profit level; If the price crosses the profit level, I HOLD it until the next price signal (8:48). My ATM for 4 contracts in Gold is, First 2 contracts takes profit @ 20 ticks, Third contract @ 40 ticks and the third one “the runner” @ 80 ticks.

For my Risk management, I just said: “Or pay me the first 2 contracts or activate my Stop Loss”. For this trade My first 2 contracts reaches the first 20 ticks ($400), at that moment my ATM moves my Stop Loss to BE(Break even), and the other two contracts were closed when my time at 8:48 was ended for ($540). At the level defined by the dot signal @ 08:58 I identify a pattern 4, and I was expecting a moderate size candle closing over the yellow line, but it never comes!!.

Executing responsibly at the predictive indicator times

The New Home sales report was lunched, and the price pumped up. I just said “Bye Bye” the candle was too big for me, and never comes back, 50% of the candle to take a risky trade, by price action with lower size position. I ended my day with almost 1k and trade no more. I was satisfied, because I know what to wait, and what the price are doing combined with the predictive signals. My training hours at the beginning of my predictive technique journey paid off the investment sessions.
