INTRA-DAY TRADE LESSON: WATCH THE TIME OF DAY FOR INTRA-DAY PIVOTAL MOVES

Often most stocks and indexes will reverse or pivot from thier initial move around the pivotal time frame. The first of these major pivotal time frames is the 10:00 am or first half hour of trading. While this phenomenon occurs very often it is not 100% and does not occur every trading day. Therefore, it is always important to put it together with another resistance level or possibly a pattern to increase the odds of a short tern trend change. The next minor pivotal intraday time frames are 10:30 and 11:00 am ET. The time frames after lunch are: minor -1:00 pm, and the major afternoon time frames are 2:30 pm, 3:00 pm, and 3:30 pm. Experiment with the time frames and you see how often these are good turning points throughout the day.
