One of the easiest ways to determine the trend in any market is simply to connect the dot’s. In this five minute video, I explain how you can connect the dots in any market to determine its trend. I will show you three examples of connecting the dots…
1. How to determine a downtrend.
2. How to determine an uptrend.
3. How to determine when a market is making a change of direction.
One of the key components I look for is how a market closes on a Friday or the last trading day of the week. This is when traders have to decide what they want to do with their positions. It also tells you with a high degree of probability which way the market is headed for the upcoming week. I learned this trading secret on the floor of the exchange in Chicago and it is one I would like to share with you today. I feel that this technique has a lot of validity, particularly in light of today’s volatile markets.

Editor’s Note: A simple yet enlightening video, and I wish I would have connected the dots on Cotton before jumping into this trade too early. I am going to try to start incorporating this technique into my entry criteria for a new trade. This would have saved me at least some of the losses I encountered this summer, by trying to go long markets that were setting lower highs and lower lows.
