33 / 99 day MA -- shows flow
volume: shows power and trend shift
patterns -- trendline touches indicate consolidation in direction of move
ENTER: after top formation (triple top, double top), AFTER formation of 3 bump/consolidation
33 under 99 MA -- ideally: enter on first retest. (unless volume is enormous, in which case there will likely be no retest)
RESISTANCE/SUPPORT areas: most tops/bottoms are on even #s or .50 line.
time of day / time of month: opex days can chop around early.
Market Signals: What other markets are doing? Strong? Weak? Same direction yields best results.
nutshell: identify flow. Enter as the direction consolidates. Buy/sell into support / resistance areas. WAIT for the right entries.
