IPM Trade Matrix - Trade 11 (Part 3)

Longs will be added on the trigger. Detailed IPM turn window along with expiration date has been emailed to subs. Market is very confusing right now. There is only one caveat i.e. ending diagonal pattern in DJIA might be completed. This could result in sharp decline. But for now, IPM trade matrix will be going long.

Please note that today's decline was in line with IPM model bottom window. This shows IPM model's timing is still very valid.

  1. You have exit 1867 and yesterday you had exit 1870. Aren't we out? I do not understand this anymore. Why put them out there if we aren't using? Sorry Naqvi - you make this too complicated for me. I'm out.

  2. Will be available on twitter today from noon to 1230 pm for questions @survive_thrive

  3. Agree with the 1st comment. But the problem is on the blog you dont know the IPM turn window. Rule is that one should stops are hit if new low outside IPM turn window. Therefore, if you know the turn window, u will be able to place effective stops. Stops within the turn window r just for risk mitigation but r not part of IPM trade matrix.

    Best example, trade 10 is still active. In fact, looking forward to enter further longs on trigger.
