DualScreen Shot - B.2.
Screen Shot - B.3.

These screen shots show the exact way in which the signals are given by the 'RH FTSE Futures Program' and most importantly the timing of the signals relative to the changes in the actual index. We have included shots which show the futures program being traded in three different ways, each in conjunction with an additional program. This illustrates how drawdowns can be reduced and also provides different methods to suit the traders temperament.  
Chart B.1.includes the R.H. Paint Bar;  Chart B.2. adds the RH. 'One to One' program on the FTSE Cash index in a dual chart and  Chart B.3. is with a separate indicator which together with some simple rules times the entry and exit points. In each case it is the same Futures program.
To provide a wider view of performance the charts show different time frames but we do not show the very latest signals. As these are not right up to date we recommend that the latest  positions that are shown are not traded; it is never a sensible action to chase signals after the event.

Explanation of Signals.B1.

The Blue 'Sign of Strength' signal indicates that the market is likely to rise and the black 'Consolidation 'signal shows that the trend is slowing down and may actually reverse. The trader can be profitably in the market for this period but will experience some draw down. To reduce these drawdowns we include the 'RH. Paint Bar Trend Indicator' which takes a shorter time frame into account and changes the colour of the price bars as the market corrects.  If a long trade is in progress when a red bar appears it can be closed out until the bar turns back to green. This may result in some small losses but protect against a large drawdown which could be the start of a change in market direction rather than a correction. 
At the top of the trend illustrated a Consolidation signal is given followed, after a few days, by a change in the Price Bar colour to red which is latter followed by a 'Sign of Weakness' indicating the possibility of a continued  downturn. This actually occurs and prior to the market trading sideways a consolidation signal is given.
The market therefore is only traded when a main signal is in place that is also supported by the Price Bar indicator and only traded in the direction of that main signal.
