    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Stocks & Commodities V. 23:12 (36-41): Breadth Of Fresh Air by Gregory L. Morris The significance of the levels of the McClellan summation index can help improve your trading results. I was writing my second book, The Complete Guide To Market Breadth Indicators, when I became aware of some significant facts. Here's one: If you had to I select one market breadth indicator that would tell you when to invest and when to be on the sidelines, which would it be? During my research, I discovered it would be the McClellan summation index. Why, you ask? I'll tell you -- but before I do, here's a quic...

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Are you just starting out as a technical trader? Or are you a veteran who wouldn't mind a refresher course on the basics?

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...NOVICE TRADER Developing A Trading System On the road to using technical analysis for trading, developing a trading system is a logical step to take along the way.

  • Candlesticks And Stochastics by Greg Morris

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Candlesticks And Stochastics by Greg Morris Is it all hype and no substance, this candlestick business? This author says not. Here's a closer look. Japanese candlesticks have added a new and exciting dimension to technical analysis. They offer nothing that is not available in standard high-low bar charts as far as actual data displayed are concerned. When it comes to visual appeal and the ability to see data relationships better, however, candlesticks are exceptional. Coupled with a few popular indicators, candlesticks become even more powerful. After a little practice and familiarization, c...

  • East Meets West: CandlePower Charting by Greg Morris

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...East Meets West: CandlePower Charting by Greg Morris Candlestick charting was introduced to me back in May 1988 at an annual Market Technicians Association meeting. The method, which originated in the Japanese rice futures market in the 1600s, received its share of attention in more than a few lectures, as numerous technical analysts from Japan were attending and speaking at the meeting. Another exciting topic presented at the meeting was Equivolume charting. Richard Arms, who wrote Volume Cycles in the Stock Market in 1983, was introducing his Equivolume charting software. Both the candlest...

It has been my experience that blindly following canned indicators can lead you into a false sense of security, especially if you begin using the indicator when it is correctly calling the market. If you begin using a trend-following indicator during its inevitable whipsaw period, you will lose faith and look for another indicator. Therefore, if you develop an indicator using some basic logic and reason which is related to kno...

  • Facelift for an Old Favorite by Gregory L. Morris

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Facelift for an Old Favorite by Gregory L. Morris ""There are many ways in which the Relative Strength Index can be adjusted and redefined."" Technical analysts who have not heard of J. Welles Wilder, Jr., and more specifically, his Relative Strength Index, probably have not delved into the art of technical analysis with much enthusiasm. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) was first presented in his now-classic book, New Concepts in Technical Trading Systems, published in 1978. Those who are familiar with RSI know that it is a very useful momentum indicator because its range is always between...
