FTG Scores

How we combine the power of our analysis into 3 instantly useable signals

We combine the readings of our indicators and analysis on three time-frames: Daily, Weekly and Monthly. For all these time-frames we issue once per day a score, that we named after FuturesTradingGuides.com, FTG Score. The FTG Score ranges from -100 to 100. The higher scores imply higher chances for higher prices, lower scores suggest lower prices. Below are the time-frames we believe each score has an effect. We also publish the recent change of each score - greater than 20 changes in these gures also may well result in anticipated market moves in the coming days.

Daily FTG Score = Short-term = Next 1-2 days

Weekly FTG Score = Medium-term = Next 1-4 weeks

Monthly FTG Score = Long-term = Next 1-12 months
