Live Day Trading Video- The Dummy Trade setup explained

I had several picture perfect trade setups executed according to plan today. Here's is how it worked.
1.My automated trade system generated a sell signal on the Dow (DIA).
2.I found a trending stock that was trading above average volume and showed a negative divergence against the major market.
3.I confirmed I had a sell signal on the stocks I was monitoring and I went short with a stop and targets to scale out.
4.I exited the trades at the low of the day with a confirmation from my automated trade system giving a buy signal.

Short Setup #1- Automated Sell signal from the Dow (DIA= DOW ETF)

ILMN- Break of 1st hour lows and trending down on above average volume with confirmation trade signals.

MED- GAP down and break of 1st hour lows and trending down on above average volume with confirmation trade signals.

These 2 stocks are perfect examples of the IDEAL DUMMY STOCK TRADE SETUP- A gap lower and break of the morning opening lows within the first hour. I had confirmation sell signals until the market reversed at 12:30pm EST.

thx. you said you use zen-fire as your futures feed and I see Quotetracker with market profile on it for ES and such, but Quoteracker doesn't seem to be accepting zen-fire.

I was using ib to feed qt charts for the stock trades and tradesation for my automated signals. I use to use ninjatrader with zen fire but switched to tradestation.
