For those who'd like to learn the Tradable Patterns approach to technical analysis, a 1hr webinar hosted by Interactive Brokers is available. Click here for details and to register for the archived stream.

Week's Top 3 Trades has launched as of June 18 and will take a similar format to Today's Top 3 Trades which has discontinued, where technical analysis will be provided on 3 futures markets from the Watchlist which appear to have the highest chance in the coming week to reverse a prior/existing trend or to extend a current trend.

The multiple timeframe analysis seen in the chart screenshots adds perspective to trade ideas, and instills discipline in the trade. By comparing the analysis across different timeframes, one can often observe conflicting signals, and most importantly, one can patiently await confirmation across key timeframes before expressing a view on the market. Notes are provided for the Weekly/Daily/4hr charts with the hourly charts included for reference.

Markets profiled are in the process of forming major or intermediate bottoms and tops or which are exhibiting strong momentum. As major and intermediate trend changes take months or even more than a year to complete, potential market turns will be discussed early by a few weeks and months in some cases to allow a trader time to mentally and financially prepare for a significant move.

To ensure the charts display well, some of the annotations (text labels) include abbreviations. See the table below for reference.
