Intraday Trading with Hurst Cycles: Example Charts

Phasing Overload! Intraday Charts Ahoy

Following on from the warmly received post on my intraday trading setup using Hurst cycles I thought I would start a post which can showcase various charts I use day to day, across multiple instruments. I will endeavour to update this page with helpful intraday phasing analysis whenever I can. Please contact me on twitter @tradinghurst if you have any questions.

The instruments I trade intraday have to be highly liquid and well traded. Volatility is also key to help identify cyclic rhythm. These are: DAX, DJIA, CRUDE (WTI), EURUSD, GBPUSD, EURGBP, USDJPY, GBPJPY, GOLD. Generally with this selection one can find opportunities everyday for high probability entries. I will usually concentrate on one or two of these instruments at a time.

Today was a great trading day. Intraday one has to be aware of commonality between instruments. Cycles in the DAX were messy and noisy in the morning session. A quick look at the FTSE clarified the correct positions of the cycle lows. Conversely toward the end of the day the FTSE 5 hour cycle low did not make a price low. That was confirmed by the DAX and DJIA.

Today was definitely not for the casual Hurst Trader! It contained a lucrative but hard to identify ‘straddled’ 5 hour trough. A straddled trough is a bearish sign when a large cycle bounce fails after a relatively short period. In this case the 5 hour low was straddled after less than the 1st 30 minute cycle. A short at the 5 hour VTL was taken and price collapsed into the evening.
