Stock Picks Recap for 3/31/14

With each stock's recap, we will include a (with market support) or (without market support) tag, designating whether the trade triggered with or without market directional support at the time. Anything in the first five minutes will be considered WITHOUT market support because market direction cannot be determined that early. ETF calls do not require market support, and are thus either winners or losers.
From the report, nothing triggered.
From the Messenger/Tradesight_st Twitter Feed, Rich's SPY triggered short (ETF, so no market support needed) and didn't work:

Futures Calls Recap for 3/31/14

As expected for end of quarter, the market was mostly flat for the session, but we squeezed out a nice winner to wrap up the month. See the NQ section below. NASDAQ volume was only 1.9 billion shares, and we have gaps below.
Net ticks: +8 ticks.
As usual, let's start by taking a look at the ES and NQ with our market directional lines, VWAP, and Comber on the 5-minute chart from today's session:


NQ:
Just a reminder that we use half points for ticks on the NQ and not the quarter point measurement that the exchanges switched to in recent years. This allows us to use 6 ticks as a key target as we do on the other contracts. It also keeps the value of a tick at $10, closer to the value of a tick on the other contracts.
Triggered long at A at 3602.00, hit first target for 6 ticks, raised stop twice and closed second half 10 ticks in the money:

Futures Calls Recap for 3/28/14

A nice winner and a stop out for gains for the session on the ES calls. Other nice technical moves in the NQ and ER. The markets gapped up, surged higher, flattened over lunch, and came back to the opening level without quite filling the ES gap as we head into end of quarter on Monday.
Net ticks: +4.5 ticks.

Forex Calls Recap for 3/28/14

Wow, two days in a row without even any triggers (I believe that is a record in almost 10 years of making Forex calls) as the GBPUSD stuck in a 40 pip range and the EURUSD stuck in a 60 pip range. But, with those ranges, you'd rather nothing triggers, frankly.
Here's a look at the US Dollar Index intraday with our market directional lines:

As usual on the Sunday report, we will look at the action from Thursday night/Friday, then look at the daily charts of all the pairs with the Seeker and Comber separately for the week ahead, and then glance at the US Dollar Index.

Futures Calls Recap for 3/27/14

A small winner on the ES as there was no follow through. The markets opened flat and traded almost exactly average daily range early, but with one move down and another back up. The rest of the day just got narrower and narrower. NASDAQ volume closed strong at 2.1 billion.

The EURUSD went one way and the GBPUSD went the other, so neither of our trades triggered. Always a risk when we don't have good setups on the same pair in both directions. The EURUSD didn't do anything again. The GBPUSD spiked on news and probably wouldn't have gotten you a fill in that move even if we had a trade there. See both sections below.
