Single Digit Execution / Target Zones

Sometimes we have single digit Execution/Target Zones as opposed to an actual Zone. These are usually pretty powerful. Examples from Friday March 24, 2017 below in ES / YM ..

Executing Trades with TS TradePlan

Sometime we get questions about how to interpret the TS #'s and Execution/Target Zones so I thought posting the 2 charts below may be helpful in showing how we look at things in the Private Client Feed. 

Keep in mind my way is just one way and certainly not the only way to execute using TS TradePlan.

Momentum Down Short Trade

Wed Jan 18, 2017 - TS TradePlan GC Gold Review and Private Client Feed Momentum Short Trade. 

I often get asked: "how do you use the Zones?" 

What TS TradePlan does for me is provide a context to the day. I ask myself how is price behaving in relation to TS TradePlan and the Execution/Target Zones? 

What is it trying to accomplish? 

What is it likely to do next?

Look at the logic behind today's momentum short trade ..

I couldn't always trade momentum just FYI. I had to learn. I wrote a post about it here: "Sports, Trading, and the Psychology of Improvement"

How "Breaking News" Affects Price Action

My long standing theory is that news creates volatility that facilitates price discovery to key areas that likely already want tested. 

This was proved again with Gold on Friday when the reopening of the email case was announced. See the charts below ..


GC TS TradePlan Gold Review / Private Client Feed Long Trade - Friday October 28, 2016


Therefore I don't worry about the specifics of the news, I am just aware of when we have releases scheduled and I expect an increase in volatility at that time.
