How Traders Can Survive In Today's Techno World

How Traders Can Survive In Today's Techno World

Information and the inherent volatility of the markets has been a staple of the industry for centuries.  The major shift within capital markets is the speed of information delivery and the unpredictable nature of the market reaction to the underlying knowledge of the subject matter.  No longer can a trader or investor rely upon the notion that information is disseminated orderly and...

How To Win At Trading: Think Less, Win More

How To Win At Trading: Think Less, Win More

I teach trading in order to learn it better. Often, the most valuable insights about how the markets work, and how to best work with them, seem to reflect the principles of sports psychology. I’m not a sports psychologist, however, but I am a competitive tennis player, so I live sports psychology on the weekends. At team practice on Monday night only 4 of us showed up, so we had a...

The Almighty Dollar: Bulls Are Chomping At Bit

The Almighty Dollar: Bulls Are Chomping At Bit

On this week last year, the US Dollar Index kicked off a rally that gained 25% in 8 short months.  Since the peak at just over 100 in March of this year, the Dollar Index has been in a consolidation and oscillating in the mid-90’s.  But that could be getting ready to change. The push higher into July tested the primary zone of resistance at 97.18 – 98.56.  The pullback found eager buyers at...

Eat Like a Lion, Not a Horse in Times of Perceived Crisis

Eat Like a Lion, Not a Horse in Times of Perceived Crisis

A few weeks ago, I wrote a well-received piece on Trader Planet titled ‘Will a Greek Exit Trigger Another European Crisis?’   I went on to explain why it wouldn’t and it was likely nothing but a short-term temporary panic in which we as investors and traders should take advantage of.   Although I feel for the people of Greece who are suffering the most from the inability of their government...

Trading Psychology: Don't Get Trapped By News

Trading Psychology: Don't Get Trapped By News

I took a long trade in the Nasdaq futures last night about 10 minutes after the 6 pm Sunday open. The index had gapped down about 25 points on some “bad news” from Europe, but I’m a technical trader so my methodology doesn’t include an input for news, good or bad. News is a trap for many traders. We get much of our market information from media that has a need for sensationalism. That’s how...

It's also important to recognize the technical direction of the market's trends and maintain a high level of discipline over our emotions.

Fed Won't Hike Rates In 2015: Here's Why

There has been amazing volatility the last couple of days in many markets, as the policy of kicking the can down the road and finding last second crisis solutions appears to have come into serious question with Greece. (...not to mention China and Puerto Rico).  Big industrial products have been crushed in the early part of this week.  For example, August Crude Oil was oscillating around $60...

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.
