At The Art of Chart, we are always striving to improve our services to better serve our customers. We have a number of improvements we have made to our site which I’d like to highlight which we hope cause you to Trade Smarter, Not Harder……
Our Partnership with Striker.com and StrikerOnline.com
Our services often trade futures or options on futures and many platforms do not have access to all the options or futures we utilize. We have been on the search for a supporting broker and we have chosen Striker.com for a few reason:
1. They have good quality customer service and are highly rated
2. They have access to all futures and options on futures
3. They offer auto trading which we plan to use for many of our services
Many of our subscribers want to take advantage of the trades I make on The Week Call in our Blog or they want to not miss an email from Options for Income or Paragon Options. We have heard you and are setting up Auto Trading with Striker.com for these three services to start. If you are a subscriber of The Art of Chart, the Auto Trading service that Striker provides will be free of the monthly subscription charge.
Join us for our webinar Thursday May 9th to find out more about our new supporting broker. You can also sign up to just receive the recording. Sign up HERE.

The Daily Update has been upgraded and improved
The Daily Update, our most popular service, has been improved with new tools for traders and investors. Understanding the markets you are trading is a big requirement to make money in global markets. We try to inform our subscribers as to where the opportunities are and how they can take advantage. Now included on The Daily Update are weekly analysis of the global commodities markets to include:
— The Commodity Advisory Newsletter – This is a free blog post but it is intended to help Daily Update Subscribers understand the markets and what is happening globally. We called the crisis in China with Lean Hogs before the rally on February 24 and since then we have seen big volatility and a 45% inverted crash. See an example of the Newsletter HERE..
— Over and Under Valued Asset Classes across the global futures market. This provides both a fundamental and technical perspective. This is intended to help you identify over and undervalued areas of the market before a big move.
— Commitment of Traders Top 4 Bullish and Bearish Setups. This tool points at when the setups are ripe using the CFTC Commitment of Trader report. Very valuable when looking to get long or short for a trade. Are the COTs lined up with your trade?
— Short Term Direction by Market. Eighteen futures with their short term direction for the week published every Sunday. Many of these are over 70% accurate in terms of direction on a weekly basis. My average since the beginning of the year across all eighteen is 66.7%.
— Subsector Ranking – Each commodity sector is ranked in terms of how they are performing against each other over the last 26 weeks. A useful tool when swing trading to capture a swing low. For example, Softs as a sector are now ranked extremely low. Watch this sector over the next six months as it will be turning green.
— Futures Correlation Table – All futures correlated in a 180 day table. How is this valuable? No more assumptions. I get asked all the time with the USD dropping will Indexes rally. My answer is there is only a 50% correlation so not a good bet. But look at Oil and the S&P 500 currently correlated 82%. Take the guess work out of correlating the market as this tool shows the last 180 days of correlated data.
— Private Twitter Feed Signals – We now have automated RSI buy and sell signals on our private twitter feed for the futures markets we trade. 5 minute for day traders, hourly and daily for swing traders.
Custom Chart Packages
We are now providing custom chart packages for those of you who do not trade futures. Based on our analysis of the futures markets we are putting together custom packages of ETFs, stocks and other instruments. Our current custom package of Energies and Metals contains instruments used for short term trading. This package includes: AG, MUX, SBGL, USO and UNG. If this package is of interest to you please respond to this email or if you are interested in a different custom package, let us know.
Lastly, I want to thank our subscribers for your business. We appreciate your input and loyalty as we continue to expand and build our web site and services. Especially those of you who have been with us from the beginning. Your subscription will never go up and we will continue to create value for you as we improve our services.
