Interactive Online Futures Seminar
Presented by ZAP Futures


Day Trading the S&P 500 Futures 

This seminar presented by Dr. John Clayburg is designed to detail two distinct approaches to trading the popular S&P market. During this web based, interactive presentation you will be presented with both an indicator based trading strategy and a completely automated trading system using many of the same principles as the indicator based approach. 

Indicator Based Approach

A logical, scientific four step approach to the generation of highly accurate day trades will be covered in detail. Briefly, these steps include:

  1. Define the dominant trend of the day, with emphasis on trading only in the direction of the major trend.
  2. Recognition of exhausted corrections within the dominant trend, allowing entry compatible with the trend.
  3. Definition of market-generated support and resistance points which define high probability entry points, again in the direction of the day's dominant trend.
  4. Placement of logical money management stops,  profit targets and/or trailing stops again using support and resistance generated by actual market activity.

Although the S&P market will be used for the explanation of these tools, please be aware that this routine is equally applicable to all markets, al times frames.

The above chart displays several of the indicators which will be used in the seminar.

System Approach

The second portion of the seminar will detail the use of an automated trading system which employs many of the same routines used to develop the indicators shown above. This system will be available to the public in February, 2001.
