The Market Map

The Market Map is an intra-day timing tool.

It is a proprietary neural network program, designed to pinpoint the TIME of the intra-day turns. It applies proprietary IFS cycle theory, artificial intelligence and sophisticated quantitative analysis computer models to provide you day-trading chart patterns.

Take a look at the chart below of the SP500: the black bars are the raw Market Map, which you receive before the market opens. The red bars are the actual trading day of the SP500.

Chart of SP500: Black bars = Map Forecast, Red bars = Actual price of SP500

Chart of SP500: Black bars = Map Forecast, Red bars = Actual price of SP500

Chart of SP500: Black bars = Map Forecast, Red bars = Actual price of SP500

The Market Map attempts to forecast what time of the day the markets will turn. The maps are available at least 6 hours before the markets in Europe open for trading, so traders have plenty of time to prepare for the trading day.

One of the more frequently asked questions is why there is no price axis on the raw Maps? The answer is that the Market Map is not a price tool. It focused purely on the time element. The Market Maps do not give price predictions or price targets.

The Market Map charts show you angles, trend change times and specific chart pattern trading formations by identifying and extrapolating the current patterns and short term cycles currently being traded by computer trading algorithms.

The Maps are used by our traders to enhance the timing of the entry and the exit of trades in the Forex Market and in the Stock Index market.

The Maps can be used to daytrade for spread betting traders, CFD traders and well as futures traders.

Although incredibly accurate (see archives) the Market Maps should never be used without proper money management, such as a stop-loss. We advise using our day trading forecast with technical analysis trading tools to confirm high and low market turning point trading signals.
