The Battle Between Bulls and Bears Intensifies

Feb 27 2014 @ 10:09
There is a raging battle between the bulls and the bears on the Internet. On Twitter and trading forums the bulls are winning. Not surprising, the stock market has been rising for five years. Each time there is a pullback the stock market rallies to new highs. This pattern has been repeating itself for so […]

Emotional Trading – The Enemy of Trading

Feb 20 2014 @ 08:47
As traders managing our positions and recording our trades is something we all learn to adopt. But how about recording our emotions? Emotion in trading is an enemy of every trader. Learning to recognise when emotions are getting in the way of trading is one step closer to becoming a better trader. Having a bad […]

Sentiment Analysis and Stock Market Timing

Feb 13 2014 @ 09:12
The above chart shows a very clear pattern. Each time the S&P 500 pulls back below the 55-day moving average, a sharp rally lasting on average two weeks follows. These moves depict increased participation from buyers which means the index can closed up day after day without any pull back. In fact if you check […]

How to Choose a Reputable Trading Signal Service

Feb 05 2014 @ 11:49
Plagiarism is described in Wikipedia as the “wrongful appropriation” and “purloining and publication” of another author’s “language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions,” and the representation of them as one’s own original work. Sadly the Internet has provided a platform for unscrupulous people to launch trading signal services, these people have little or no experience and their...

Stock Markets Heading for a Negative January

Jan 30 2014 @ 09:08
The latest stock market setback has been triggered by distress from emerging markets and if you can remember 1997 this may feel like familiar territory. “Thailand ran into trouble in July 1997. Four months later South Korea’s president warned his countrymen of the “bone-carving” pain to follow an IMF bail-out. It took over a year […]

Multiple Wave Count on the S&P 500

Jan 24 2014 @ 08:01
Some disappointing news from China yesterday was the catalyst behind the decline. Chinese manufacturing is in contraction and the news from the US was not better. US manufacturing PMI came in lower than expected. This reminded investors that the December job report may not have been an accident after all. While the reaction was normal, […]

FTSE 100 Trading: Sentiment Analysis Points to Further Gains

Jan 15 2014 @ 08:09
Michael Hewson of CMC Markets today writes: “Combine that (net retail sales Q4 number fell back to 1.1%) with hawkish comments from new FOMC voting members Charles Plosser and Richard Fisher with respect to further cuts to monetary stimulus and fairly indifferent earnings releases from JP Morgan Chase and Wells Fargo and you wonder what […]

Why Trend Following Systems Fail

Dec 13 2013 @ 06:51
Lately I’m hearing that many people are not making money trading the UK stock market. It’s not surprising, the FTSE 100 has gone sideways since May this year and because most people use trend-following systems when a trend does not persist – profits are hard to come by. However, if you are not a trend […]

A Contrarian Approach to Investing

Dec 05 2013 @ 06:58
Despite the recent good economic reports, sentiment remains bearish and the stock markets are staying down. As I have mentioned before the FTSE 100 is the leading index and the S&P 500 is now catching up with the FTSE 100. Companies listed on the FTSE 100 are exposed to emerging markets which are a barometer […]

An Extreme in Bullish Sentiment is a Warning Signal

Nov 27 2013 @ 07:25
Sentiment appears to be changing from bullish to bearish. The e-Yield Sentiment Indicator (ESI) moved to neutral after one of its components, the BTI, turned down yesterday. Sometimes the BTI will be down for a day or two then it will turn up again, this is what I call a false signal. To avoid false […]
