Hello Traders,

On March 29th, 2012, I was watching the Crude Oil Market, and low and behold an interesting trading day commenced!

Well, can you?

Well, can you? 🙂

I have a general trading rule, not to trade past the 28th of any month.  With this trading strategy, you can make an exception if you see a HVS SKY on the trading charts.

By definition, to have a HVS SKY you need to have a volume bar well over 500, and the higher the better!  The higher the number on the HVS SKY the better the overall signal you will have a high odds of extreme types of movement in the market.

What we see here, is a double top and a double bottom, followed by a breakout to the short side.  From this point, the overall trend was down on the trading day.  It went to take out a bunch more buy stops on the way down.  In fact, this trading day, I noted 6 Skyscrapers overall.

The market eventually went down 7P on the trading day.  Finally, the market moved slightly up towards the end of the trading session. It was a beautiful example of bracketing a market and allowing the market to decide which way it wanted to proceed.

Good Trading,
