The TOOL you are about to put in your “tool box” is so simple and easy to use that you may be tempted to discard it before trying, however “simplicity often leads to success.”

In order to make a PIT [price-time tar get] all you need is:

  • 1. A charting software package that allows you to draw on trendline on a 5 minute chart (or any time frame) of an e-mini mar ket, and to clone the trendline.
  • 2. Recognize by observation, the appearance of a REGULAR CYCLE and that of an INVERTED CYCLE.
  • 3 . Connect the two cycles, again b y observation, draw two trendlines and the price and time target PIT will be given at the end of the cloned trendline, plotted right on the chart.

There are no calculations, no expensive software needed, no formulas or complicated rules to follow and the same procedure is used on any chart of your choosing.

You can choose any length cycle you wish to trade that will give you the profit!loss ratio that suits your money management policy. This step is the only subjective decision you need to make to arrive at the PIT.

Proof of the above statements ar e in the pages to follow. Please read with an open and creative mind and you will be amazed as to how often near perfect results are obtained.

Perhaps even more important is the mar ket analysis that is possible when the target is missed in price, time, or both. Many times you will be able to correctly predict the next move in the market because of a failure of the market to reach the PTT.
