These screen shots show the exact way in
which the signals are given by the 'RH FTSE Suite' and
most importantly the timing of the signals relative to the changes in the actual
index. We have
included shots for the occasions when the market has dropped substantially, as
we are often asked
for how the system performed during these times, and also
shots of more recent weeks. These
signals are not up to date and therefore
recommend that they are not traded; It is never a sensible
action to chase
signals after the event but also the manner in which they should be traded is

there is a short
period before a 'Sign of Weakness' is given which indicates the market will trend
which it does, as it recovers a 'Consolidation' signal is given followed in

The Consolidation Signals indicate that the current trend is over but
there is no clear indication of
the market direction at that time.
Markets, as they trend, will pause after a
period of time and possibly retrace before continuing the
same trend as occurred
in November with the 'Consolidation' signal ultimately being given in January.

and this can substantially affect the gain of a Bought option due
to the time decay. Therefore we use
certain additional indicators to exit the
market early and then to re-enter as the market cycles up and
down within the
range of the short term signal. Trades are only taken in the direction of the main
signal until a 'Consolidation' signal occurs.
