  • A Weekly S&P Trading System by Adam White

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...V13:06: (233-237): A Weekly S&P Trading System by Adam White Here's a trading system based on a price pattern and which uses the Standard & Poor's 500 index as a test case.

  • The Eight-Year Presidential Election Pattern by Adam White

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...The Eight-Year Presidential Election Pattern by Adam White That seasonal patterns exist cannot be denied. But there may be patterns within those patterns, depending on how you look at them. The four-year Presidential cycle is a prime example or are we only looking at half the pattern there? Here's a new look at the Presidential cycle.

Welles Wilder to measure market trend intensity, or the unsmoothed version, the directional index (DX)? Adam White of the Technical Traders Bulletin measures the performance of a breakout trading system using the ADX or the DX as signal filters. In hindsight, few things look better on a chart than a successful breakout -- a profitable move to a better price signaled by the crossing of an established support or resistance level. But for ever...

  • Filtering Trades With A Moving Average Slope by Adam White

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Filtering Trades With A Moving Average Slope by Adam White Moving averages are attractive because they simply and reliably execute the ""cut your losses and let your profits run"" strategy. Moving averages also have drawbacks, however, in that they discard much of the information that the market offers. A simple moving average represents simple quantified information -- either prices are above it or below it. Can additional information, in this case the slope of the moving average, be put to use to improve trading performance? Adam White of the Technical Traders Bulletin shows you how. Despit...
