The Trend Trader helps to identify the current trend status of your favorite ETF markets. It not only helps us to stay on the right side of market direction, but also helps us avoid those without a trend. You can even use the grid as a spread matrix too – buying strength and selling weakness. Before you place your next trade, be sure to consult the Trend Trader.

The Trend Trader for StocksNeal Weintraub: Pivot Point analysis is merely a tool and should be used with other technical indicators. It can be used to enter a trade, or exit a trade and when combined with average true range is a powerful money management tool. Once you enter a trade, you are no longer a trader, you are a risk manager and should monitor your trades on a weekly or daily basis depending on volatility. When you enter a trade assume you are wrong and let the market prove you are right. This will diminish the hubris and arrogance that is common to many traders. Please use these Pivot Points as a guide to better trading.
