Last week I showed you how I use sentiment with the stock/bond ratio chart to determine how to look for market reversals. I personally like to combine the sentiment charts with other technical analysis to determine where we are within that cycle. The use...
With the shift out of many of the momentum names that led last year strong performance, we’ve seen the Internet Index take a beating recently with the First Trust Dow Jones Internet Index (FDN) off 15% from its high in March. When it comes to technical...
April is the cruelest month as T.S. Eliot famously once said. April also marks the end of the U.S. stock market's so-called "best six months." Historically, investing in the Dow Jones Industrial Average from November 1 through April 30 and then switching...
To avoid any possible confusion, that headline isn't an April Fool's joke. Last week I wrote about buying the dip in SPY (S&P 500 Depository Receipts), and in the days that followed, the pieces fell into place on the S&P 500 chart. A GOOD...
Hello everyone! I hope you are all having an excellent start to your week today, I know I am. Today I am bringing you a trade I have personally been sitting on a bit longer, but today has broken a critical level and broken out from a pattern. It's no...
Over the past few weeks, popular American momentum stocks have been in a steep correction. To throw out a few familiar names, Tesla Motors (TSLA), Netflix (NFLX) and Twitter (TWTR) are all down more than 15% over the past month, and King Digital...
Today I'd like to bring you one of the most recent trades I have put on, which is a long strategy in Alliant Techsystems (ATK). The market has overall been a bit toppy and stocks have been taking a beating. However, the long term trend is still up,...
I confess —I’m a boring trend follower. The Primary Trend I take a top-down approach to trend following. Identifying the direction of the broad market is the main objective. My primary indicator, my unemotional compass is J. Welles Wilder, Jr.’s ...
Over the last couple of weeks it seems we have been experiencing some interesting moves in individual sectors. Specifically, I’ve noticed the SPDR Energy Sector ETF (XLE) chart showing an interesting setup. We have price approaching a new high, although...
For Phase I of Markets re-design, we are introducing simple OHLC bar charts with a volume histogram.
To adjust the period and scale of the chart, use the "slider" bar which appears underneath the Volume histogram frame. If the slider frame is not appearing, you may need to adjust the 'Zoom' view of your internet browser or adjust your screen resolution to a lower resolution.
By dragging the start and end arrows of the slider bar to the left and right, you can easily adjust the date range.
Features planned for Phase II will include a selection of chart types and a technical indicator library with the ability to define a custom date range for the chart data.
