Ops up / Ops Down

Have you ever wonder what it meant to be above of below the previous bar's opens? Or, how to trade against these opens?

Ops = Open Pivot

Ops is a term we created to put meaning to a momentum type pattern on the charts. 

Ops Up = Market is trading above the previous bar's open.  Bullish.

Ops Down = Market is trading below the previous bar's open.  Bearish.

Warning = How many points above / below the previous bar's open. If you have it set to 1 and it is .50 above, the display would have a yellow background. 

We have a chart type included with the Smooth Charts called Ops Charts. The Ops Chart will show you clearing if you are above or below the previous bar's open. The open of the Ops Charts is the previous bar's open.

The overall purpose of the Cycle Trader has been to continue to create trading indicators to show market momentum & reversals better than most other indicators. To create trading models to help traders understand what pattern the market may be in at the time to help them make the best choice in direction at the time.

We have designed trading apps to help traders save money entering and exiting positions. The goal was to make the trading apps automatically handle orders after entry. This way, you our traders could concentrate more on the direction of the markets than placing orders all the time. Then we added value for each trade from start to finish displaying personal trade data. The trade data with the CycleTraderPro apps is data one would not expect from others apps.
