Red Dog Reversal Case Study: Spotting Who’s in Control

Shares

My favorite strategy — the Red Dog Reversal — helps me spot reversals.

But it can also help you determine a change in active control from the bulls to bears (or vice versa).

That's exactly what happened on Wednesday.

This is the chart I showed that day:

On Wednesday, SPY broke below Monday and Tuesday's lows ($285.58 and $286.03), and then reclaimed them to trigger the Red Dog Reversal long signal.

The stop would go at the low of $285.25.

If I like the follow through, sometimes I take a third of the position home as a swing trade.

And in the updated chart, you can see how the trade followed through for the rest of the week, with SPY getting up to resistance at $294ish.

So what's the big lesson?

When a pivot low holds, that low becomes a battleground. The computers use that level to stop out longs and shorts.

And the movement after tells you whether the bulls or bears are winning.

In this case, the bulls won.
