A mechanical swing trading method requiring putting on just 3 trades per month, IE
Buy the First & Last Mondays plus the Friday before OEX of every month.
It appears to have about a 75% winning history and uses just 2 simple rules.

FLO TRADES was developed by me but borrowing heavily from the "seasonality"work of Larry Williams. Mr Williams applied his methods very successfully in the commodities markets, making millions. He is also the inventor of the widely used Williams %R chart indicator.

I've adapted selected parts of his ideas and applied them to the S&P 500 e-mini futures market.
Although I have not actually traded using this,  I have been tracking it's results since late 2015. 
If you have an interest I've created a FLO TRADES page on my blog that explains the ideas in much greater detail.

The charts below show the trading rules and entry arrows for the past 3 months on the ES e-mini futures and the SPY ETF.
Note that tomorrow is the last Monday of May, Memorial Day holiday, so no entry will be initiated...

My basic premise -- In the markets, what goes down must go up.

Spent two hours on your blog ... checking out chart patterns etc. ... nice ... have much more to read yet ...

I have seen a lot of trend reversal signs on charts ... but was fumbling around trying to figure out turn patterns entry points ...

but your stuff really helps shorten the learning curve by showing the divergence signals and entry/stop signals that go with the reversal turns ... thanks ...

Nice work there, SharpShorts!  Also, timing around critical EVENTS (like OEX) that don't show up on any charts, are important for a trader to consider, I think. Too often, I see traders leaning STRICTLY on their charts, and missing on critical events that are not easily picked up by action on a chart. However, taking EVENTS (calendar events for one thing) into consideration when viewing a chart, can be the critical difference in making a successful trade, imho. Thanks.
