    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Editor, Excellent article by Jamie Theiss in the May 2011 S&C. Nearly all my trades are done by fading the gaps right after the opening using one-minute candlesticks plus a couple of indicators. Occasionally, I will wait around after my exit and look for a continuation back in the direction of the gap, as Theiss describes in his article, and that works too. I'm done by 10:30 at the latest every day. His article was very timely for me because I've been thinking about staying around longer more often. Thanks for the encouragement....

Without this, the oscillator may interpret the situation incorrectly. Suppose the Nasdaq opened down with a gap of 100 points, then rallied from the open 50 points, and closed at the high of the day. Say the situation repeated five days in a row. Calculating the oscillator's value base...

One key factor is whether the outfit you're checking out is a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) or a registered Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA).

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Letters To S&C BALANCE OF MARKET POWER Editor, I read with interest the August 2001 article by Igor Livshin on the balance of market power (BMP) and decided to implement the indicator. After some observation, it turns out that all the formulas for this indicator turn out to be, after making all the summations: BMP := (C-O)/(H-L) That's it -- the balance of market power is simply the difference between the close and the open, divided by the daily range. What is most curious, because it was not apparent during my reading of the philosophy behind the indicator, is that BMP is the same for the...

A quick perusal of our listing this issue shows that they have been called in to consult on everything from tax advice to weather reporting. Can all this help you? Maybe. The rules for checking out consultants are simple: check references, check references, and (did you guess?) check references. Nothing can be more vague than a consultant's initial proposal, but nothing is clearer than a client's opinion on the success of a consultant's engagement. Consultants without satisfied clients are...

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...NEUROSHELL TRADER Hans Uhlig's nearest neighbor prediction (NNP) trading system presented in his article in this issue works by finding near neighbors of the reference pattern, and then averaging the next moves of the neighbors to get an estimate of the next move of the reference pattern. In the article, under the heading "Refinements," Uhlig outlines a method of improving the performance, wherein each neighbor is weighted in proportion to its distance. A further refinement he describes would be to apply different weights to individual elements of the pattern. Here's how to implement the NNP...

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...CANDLECODES AND BOLLINGER BANDS Editor, I liked very much Viktor Likhovidov's use of Bollinger Bands on an indicator in "Light Up Your Trading System With CandleCode Trading" (STOCKS & COMMODITIES, September 2001). Figure 5 on page 26 nicely demonstrates why this technique is so powerful. (Though I am leery -- as I always am of optimization -- of the optimized parameters used later in the article.) As Likhovidov astutely observes, fixed indicator levels rarely serve well. The markets evolve, and that evolution is portrayed in indicator action; this year, one set of levels serves well, while th...

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...CLARIFICATION, NOT CRITICISM Editor, I was shocked to learn that an S&C reader interpreted my letter to the editor in the February 2001 STOCKS & COMMODITIES ("Phasor Displays") as a criticism of John Ehlers. I have so many faults that I have a personal rule never to criticize any person. My letter was an appeal for help, not a criticism. Ehlers's articles show brilliance, but I'm frustrated because they go over my head. (Perhaps, as my wife reminds me, an idea goes in one of my ears and out the other -- with nothing to stop it.)

He brought to mind what I felt was a balanced view of market efficiency. He also whetted my appetite for volume indicators. I already use Marc Chaikin's money flow indicator in the Australian market, without a great deal of success, and I am interested in the volume accumulation percent indicator. However, as Vomund does not mention how this indicator is calculated, and I have no other references to it, I wonder if you can enlighten me? TREVOR T. BESTOW, vi...

Like the broadening top, the broadening bottom forms a symmetrical triangle. Although the broadening top is a rare formation, the broadening bottom is even rarer. Figure 1 shows a typical broadening bottom with three successively lower lows and two successively higher highs that combine at the end of a downward move. This gives the impression of an erratic market, as the swings in both directions get wider each time. The ...

It's refreshing to hear the views of a totally independent trader. Many so-called experts in the investment arena have some kind of hidden agenda. By far, Cook's greatest wisdom lies in his simplicity of approach: "Buy when everyone is selling and sell when everyone is buying." This solid investing principle would have warned you of a possible top at 5,000 in the Nasdaq (now about 2,000) and of a possible bottom on the Commodity Research Bureau ...

On a scale of one to 10, I'd grade him, brilliance: 9, clarity of exposition: 1. For example, a small puzzlement: In Figure 7, in quadrant II there's a note, "point 28." Isn't this point 23? There's a point 28 near the top of the chart, in quadrant I. In quadrant I, there's a note, "counter clockwise segment." Isn't the swing bar 21, 22, 23?41 a clockwise swing?

That is half the fun -- to see how a new technique compares with established ones! Thus, I was most di...

This comparison can be as simple as placing two different charts side by side. The most widely endorsed use of intermarket analysis hails from the Dow theory, whereby the movement of the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) is compared with the Dow Jones Transportation Average (DJTA).

Based on other articles that have been published in your magazine and based on my own research, I've concluded that Dow theory has not lost its relevance to market behavior in spite of massive changes in trading volume and velocity since the 1800s. Although electro...

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...WEB FORUM ON TRADING? Editor, I'm a longtime subscriber to your magazine and enjoy it very much, including especially the reviews of products. There is a related need that your Web site could meet while it would be impractical for a periodical. The product reviews in the magazine are good for an overall view of a product but can-not shine a light on many users' everyday experiences with the product, including those annoying or efficiency- wasting implementation issues related to usage and configurations, and intangibles such as ease of living with a product and enthusiasm and depth of support...

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...TRADESTATION Here are two indicators to assist readers in identifying some of the classic chart patterns, as discussed in Daniel Chesler's "Identifying significant chart formations" elsewhere in this issue. Ideally, you will use one or both of the indicators in conjunction with other analytical techniques, such as trendlines, to identify trading opportunities on your charts. The first indicator, the ADX/MovAvg Combo, is a relatively simple indicator based on the average directional movement indicator (ADX) and moving average calculation. This indicator plots a 50-bar moving average and trigge...

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...METASTOCK "On using volatility bands" by Ahmet Tezel and Suzan Koknar-Tezel introduces two different volatility band trad-ing systems, one system using bands based on moving averages and the other based on regression bands. To plot the moving average asymmetric volatility price bands (MAAVPB) in MetaStock for Windows, simply plot Bollinger bands using 11 periods and 1.7 standard deviations. Then click your right-mouse button while the cursor is over the lower band and choose properties. Change the standard deviations to 2.

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...POINT & FIGURE CHARTING Editor, Concerning Daryl Guppy's March 1997 article ("Building point & figure charts"), the one-box point & figure chart was created incorrectly. When the reversal is one unit, you do not always move one column to the right. The only reason to move one column to the right in any P&F chart is to avoid overwriting the Xs or Os in the current column. You will always need to move to the right in reversal charts of two, three, five or more units, but not with one-unit reversal charts. For example, if the price reverses by only one unit and then reverses back again, you do n...

The oscillator is derived from a consensus of trends that, when plotted in color, has the appearance of a rainbow. Using a few studies and functions in TradeStation, the rainbow lines and rainbow oscillator can be developed in Easy Language. As always, the functions should be devel-oped first. For the indicators themselves, special formatting is required for each. An outline of the recommended format is given after each set of indicator code. B...

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...LETTER FROM JOHN BOLLINGER Editor, The conventional interpretation of Bollinger bands is not overbought at the upper band and oversold at the lower band, as the Tezels assert in "On using volatility bands" (STOCKS & COMMODITIES, October 1997). Bollinger bands provide a relative definition of high and low that can be used in the interpretation of indicators to arrive at trading decisions. If a tag of the upper band is accompanied by confirmation from an appropriately specified indicator, higher -- not lower -- prices are called for. If that same tag were unconfirmed then lower prices would be ...

McCormick In part 1, Katz and McCormick looked at the underpinnings of how statistics can help the trader determine the feasibility of a system. This month, in part 2, they explain the steps necessary to evaluate trading system behavior with the use of statistics. Last month, I laid the groundwork for how statistics can help the trader determine whether the per-formance of a system is due to chance, or if the trading model is valid.
