Day Trading DOW and FTSE; Updates on Projected Channels

Day Trading DOW and FTSE; Updates on Projected Channels

A quick update on the projected channels outlined for both FTSE and DOW ahead of today’s session.

Fortunately the FTSE channel did hold overnight and I exited the position today on the cash close at 5560.

The projected DOW channel also worked a charm offering the best entry shortly before the Cash session:

I have no idea what to expect for tomorrows session. The chart would indicate up a little more but being the last trading day of the year it’s anyone’s guess, and I’m sure “they’ll” want to park the Indices at a key level or a statistically interesting level…..just because they can!
