Consecutive Closes

We have determined that markets don't go straight up or down forever. They all turn, which is what we call Cycles. 

The consecutive close model suggests that the market will go 3 to 4+ consecutive close in a row, and then the next bar could be an opposite close.

The model does not mean the move is over; it is just a setback is anticipated, and you can make money both on a fade and momentum pattern.

There are several trades to consider when we see this model; if the market has moved up 3+ consecutive closes or more, then this model suggests:

  1. To reach (Go Fish) for a  fill price to start the fade. 
  2.  To sell to fade the market, but just expect that there could be a setback coming and to get ready to enter in the direction of the closes using another Alpha Hunters Trade Model, for example. 
  3. Look for an Jordan Entry Model.
  4.  Entry set up. Meaning if the market was moving up, then we have the first red down close, then the entry would be a buy stop at the open of the red down close bar or the high of that bar. The protective stop would be close or low to the red down bar if filled. 

Our work has shown that markets do not go straight up or down forever.

The correct and move the other way for another cycle count. You may expect 1 to 4 bars in one direction and then opposite close along the way.

What we look for? 

Once we see the market have 3 + closes in the same direction, we will start to anticipate an opposite close. 

This does not mean the market is reversing, but rather that it can for a small amount a time and price.
