    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...V.13:06: (252-254): The Ratio Of Inflation Rates And Currency Trends by John Kean Exchange rates fluctuate on a second to second basis, but the long-term trends can be understood by using an indicator based on the ratio of inflation rates. The case in point? The recent Mexican peso debacle. Picture this: A robust developing economy, a democratically maturing political system and a newly adopted treaty eliminating trade tariffs with the world's greatest consumer economy (which also happens to be its northern neighbor).

  • Determining Leverage For Trading Systems by John Kean

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Determining Leverage For Trading Systems by John Kean When your trading's going your way, you're apt to think about leveraging your trading based on your success in hindsight. However, leveraging can be a two-edged sword when it comes to profits and drawdowns. Admit it. Getting rich quick has a certain allure, but pursuing it as a goal seldom pays off.

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Stock Market Risk: A Monthly Look by John Kean Have you ever wanted to know what the actual statistics of the month-to-month risk in the stock market are?

  • Using Neural Nets For Intermarket Analysis by John Kean

  • Chaos Theory And Neural Network Analysis by John Kean

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Chaos Theory And Neural Network Analysis by John Kean Do markets have memory? In this new theory by Edgar Peters, an offshoot of chaos theory, John Kean explains, markets can be regarded as nonlinear dynamic systems, and neural networks can be used to analyze and gauge behavioral patterns in price change data useful in prediction. It's convenient that, at a time when the T behavioral natures of commodity and financial markets are being rethought, a new technique for examining the data has appeared. Chaos theory, in its in fancy, challenges the statistically based conventional view of markets...

  • Bond Yield Diagnosis by John Kean

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Bond Yield Diagnosis by John Kean Inflation is usually the first choice for analyzing the forces driving the direction of bond yields, but systems analyst John Kean illustrates that charting government borrowing can help determine the trend of interest rates.
