The following is a brief introduction, with video, to the ‘point of control’. It’s the key trading idea of Slipstream Trader editor Murray Dawes.
The ‘point of control’ (POC) is, in Slipstream Trader editor Murray Dawes’ own words, ‘the gravitational point that the market oscillates around’. And that’s a pretty big idea to wrap your head around.
It’s much easier to understand what the point of control is (and how it works) once you’ve seen it in action.
The example below shows how Murray used the POC to predict market volatility with startling precision. In fact, using his point-of-control method, Murray saw the market losses ahead almost two months in advance.
The assembled video clips below are excerpts from the actual clips made available to Slipstream Trader subscribers at the time. Murray records a video update nearly every week so you can see precisely what he’s looking at and how he’s analysing the market. As a paying subscriber, you’ll get to see how Murray analyses the market, identifies trends – and the point of control – and determines when to buy and sell stocks.
What we can and will show you is how accurately Murray predicted the broader market movements.
On the 23rd of March, Murray predicted a precise point at which he expected markets to turn:
With his sell zone identified, all his subscribers had to do was wait. Meanwhile, Murray identified the best shorting opportunities around in preparation for his predicted fall. And sure enough, markets fell:
As the drop began, from the exact level Murray had warned, the short positions recommended began to pay off immediately.
But Murray wasn’t finished. As you heard, he made some further predictions of where the price action was about to go. So did the market reach Murray’s Point of Control at 1100? Listen to a snippet of his May 15th Market Update to find out:
So once again, Murray was spot on.
It’s rare to find a chart analyst with an eye for macroeconomic news. But Murray combines traditional charting methods, his own price distribution theories and an awareness of what’s going on in the world to predict the movements of the S&P 500 and ASX 200 with incredible accuracy.
He then positions his subscribers to profit from his forecasts.
