The GRI Reference Sheet
Reports published by GRI reference different technical points or utilize abbreviations to maximize the space available and quickly identify signals.  A brief description of each is listed below.

Price Line Display
The left columns of the DayTrader and Global Trader newsletters are a price line, divided into equal price increments, centered around the previous day’s settlement.  Along this price line are letters representing the locations of technical points in widespread use by trading systems and methods that have had a real impact on trade in many markets.  Multiple technical points will converge in a given area, giving this area greater technical validity than any individual point.

Previous Highs/Lows (P)
The “Last (#) High” and “Last (#) Low” indicate the prices of the latest four minor highs and lows.

10-Day Average Moves (A)
“Open to High, Open to Low, Settle to High, Settle to Low, and 10 DMA Range” are 10-day averages of the distance the market has rallied or dropped from the previous points.


Fibonacci Points (F or * or Fib Point)
Fibonacci support and resistance points based on yesterday’s range, close, and the Fibonacci ratio of .618.  The Key Price (high+low+close)/3 serves as the base point to determine range support and resistance.


Moving Averages (M)
These are the most commonly used moving averages of settlement prices, highs, and lows.


Swing and Scalper Points (S)
Minor Swing High and Low represent the near-term price projection and retracement targets, and Swing Critical represents the price through which a failing minor trend should not trade, all based upon near-term swing analysis.  Scalpers points are the spread of yesterday’s range adjusted for market direction.


VMA (Computer) Points (V)
VMA Points are computer generated points of support and resistance based on formulas which are proprietary to GRI. Starred range levels highlight VMA levels that provide the extreme high or low from the previous close which the computer considers the most probable support or resistance zone for the day.


Trend Reversal Point (TRP)
The Trend Reversal Point (TRP) refers to a Fibonacci retracement point and may be highlighted in the comments with an asterisk (*). A close beyond the TRP will change the short term trend direction.

The GRI Reference Sheet


Range Reversal / Range Key (Range Rev)
Range Reversal/Range Key are used in combination as a minor trend reversal indicator.  A one day move which exceeds the Range Reversal distance, from high to low or visa versa, against the current minor trend, signals a probable change in the minor trend direction.  A market is more likely to experience a significant Range Reversal during times when the Range Reversal value closely approaches the Range Key value.


Achieved (ACHD)
Once the market Achieves a projected objective, the abbreviation (ACHD) may denote that the target has been hit.  Often trade action will display a reactionary turn away from Achieved targets and the displayed (ACHD) helps remind that the market has completed an expected trend swing.


Short Term (ST)
Short Term (ST) is used to denote a time reference of 2 days to 2 weeks.  Generally used to suggest the trend bias of the market action.  An (LT) abbreviation might be used to highlight a Longer Term time focus of a month to 6 months.


2 Day Pattern Bias
The 2 Day Pattern Bias is based on computer analysis of repeated technical sequencing of price data, looking at things like highs/lows in reference to each other over a multi-day sample.  The comment and small chart on some reports refers to the trading bias for today of a 126 possible combinations.


3 Day Historical Pattern
The 3 Day Historical Pattern is drawn from 20 years of price pattern matching compared to the past three days of trade and provides a statistical bias for possible trade action for today.  Results are filtered to only provide the most reliable signal when price activity suggests a significant match.


Priority Indicators
The Priority Indicators is a computer driven filtering system, tracking technical patterns or signals and ranking these for quick reference.  Indicators are color coded as well to help highlight what the computer finds to be significant activity in a market.


Momentum Indicators
RSI, or Relative Strength Index is a popular overbought/oversold indicator which signals, on a scale zero to 100, the degree of any market’s vulnerability to a technical correction.  An oscillator (OSC) is the difference between two moving averages of the settlement, and displays an overbought/oversold condition on a positive or negative scale unique to each market.  Values far above or below zero indicate a high likelihood of a technical correction against the current trend.
