Sentiment Extremes - Be Careful Buying the SPX

Sentiment Extremes - Be Careful Buying the SPX

The SPX (S&P 500 Index) has been on a very wild ride lately. When most were expecting the rally in early September to go on forever, sentiment was telling a different story. As a matter of fact, it was suggesting to get short, as investor sentiment was at extreme bullish readings, which we noted in this TraderPlanet article. Using Sentiment When using sentiment as a gauge to make a...

Define Risk On Crude Oil Play With Options

Define Risk On Crude Oil Play With Options

The markets have calmed down a bit from last week, but there is still a cloud of uncertainty hanging overhead. The equity markets have done quite a job of getting back most of the recent sell off. Last week the S&P 500 had a nearly 120 point range from Monday to Thursday, with a 50 point range on Thursday alone. The market closed up 30 points from the low on Thursday, which may have...

Oil May Not Be Done Going Down Just Yet

Oil May Not Be Done Going Down Just Yet

The United States Oil Fund LP (USO), a crude oil ETF, is down 22.54% from the highs of 2014. This turn has taken place over the last four months amidst a rally in the PowerShares DB U.S. Dollar Index Bullish ETF (UUP) in the same time period. An end to the Fed’s Quantitative easing program and hints at a rate hike in 2015 are the likely cause for the price action we’ve seen in the U.S....

Trading Psychology: Stay Calm When The Fastballs Fly

Trading Psychology: Stay Calm When The Fastballs Fly

A client of mine sent me a bio yesterday on Rod Dedeaux, who was the baseball coach for USC for 45 seasons. Dedeaux was a legendary leader, chalking up more national titles and wins (1332) than any other coach of his day. 200 of his players went on to play professional ball. Dedeaux neither lost his temper nor disrespected or denigrated anyone. He cultivated the ability to befriend,...

Gold Bulls Could Pause Ahead Of Fed Meeting

Gold Bulls Could Pause Ahead Of Fed Meeting

The gold market has posted impressive price action in the past few weeks in the face of a rising U.S. dollar and in this week's case a major rebound in U.S. stock indices. See Figure 1 below. The gold market made a double bottom a few weeks back at the $1182-83 area from last December. Gold’s rebound, in my view, is largely due to safe-haven buying due to the lack in confidence in fiat...

S&P 500: Use Past Patterns To Predict Future Market Moves

S&P 500: Use Past Patterns To Predict Future Market Moves

Humans are creatures of habit and that is why history will almost always repeat at some time in the future. The same holds true for our financial system as well as the stock market. I have always been a big “fractal pattern” believer and do a lot of my research for future direction, based off of a similar pattern that has happened in the past. History will mimic, but not repeat exactly for...

Swing Trade: Aussie Bounces Off Support

Swing Trade: Aussie Bounces Off Support

For three weeks the Aussie dollar pressed chart support at 0.866 U.S. dollars and stabilized, and this week is generating follow-through buying. Enhancing the odds of further upside from here is the tall upper shadow (selling into price strength) and small real body (open and close are close to each other) that appeared two weeks ago on the weekly chart. This pattern of behavior often points...

4 Key Trading Lessons From The Beach

4 Key Trading Lessons From The Beach

Winter is approaching so I had to make sure to enjoy one more beach day. Hard to do in Nashville, TN though. That being said, we took a short, eight-hour drive to Panama City to visit my girlfriend’s family and, of course, get some serious beach time in.  You might think it’s a stretch to relate snorkeling to trading. Well, only one way to find out. #1 Gear: When trading, you do have to...

You can look at markets and make trading decisions in many ways. Market Profile® has been an indispensable tool in my trading career.

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.
