It is a holiday in the US on Monday, June 20, and the stock market is closed that day. Market health remains poor. I am not taking long swing trades until we start to see an improvement. Let's see how to assess the market's health for swing trades.
How To Trade The New Trend After A Forex Price Structure Breakout
Currency pairs moving within price structures present high-reward trading opportunities. But so do the trends that follow a breakout. Here’s how to capture those.
Stock Market Health Update For The Week Of June 13
Long story short, last weekend I was looking forward to the possibility of taking some trades if the indices continued to show strength. That situation didn’t materialize. I remain in cash due to the market's poor health.
Stock Market Health Update For The Week Of June 6
Last week was fairly flat, but the prior week saw a follow-through day to the upside. A follow-through day is often one of the first signals of a market turnaround, but since it sometimes comes too early, we need some other signals to confirm.
Stock Market Health Update For Week Of May 30
A follow-through day last week was the first signal of a possible turnaround (to the upside) in the major stock indices. The other health indicators are improving.
Stock Market Health Update For Week Of May 16

Forex Strategies Guide for Day and Swing Traders 2.0
Cory Mitchell

My mission in writing this forex strategies guide is to provide you with enough strategies and trading information that it’s the only forex strategies eBook you’ll need to get started and get profitable:
--You've likely looked up strategies or read strategy books before…and it didn't help your trading! Am I right? That’s because you’re missing one of the keys, and books and websites rarely, if ever, discuss it. It’s a step-by-step approach for how to actually implement the strategies and train your mind to utilize them effectively. Utilize and stick with this 5-step method and success is an inevitability, not just a possibility. Without this missing key you could read strategy book after strategy book and still never be profitable.
