  • At The Close by Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Stocks & Commodities V. 23:4 (98): At The Close by Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan So far, the 50-day moving average on the Standard & Poor's 500 chart has been acting as a good support level during February (Figure 1). Not only is it acting as a support, it has also showed signs of a slight upward bend. This tells me that I should only go long when trading the e-mini contract. Now it's a matter of waiting till the right opportunity comes. On February 16, 2005, at around 11:07 am (PT), I noticed an increase in buying enthusiasm, but that quickly faded. That was unfortunate, because for a moment I th...

  • Interview: Richard Dennis by Art Collins

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Stocks & Commodities V. 23:4 (46-53): Interview: Richard Dennis by Art Collins Perhaps no one in the world of commodity trading has more lore attached to him than the legendary Richard Dennis, the founder, along with William Eckhardt, of the original Turtles and the system they established. Dennis's stunningly successful involvement with mechanical systems came about when he realized that whatever worked for him in his trading could be reduced to and defined as a trading rule. Today, he pretty much eschews the public investment arena, confining himself to an exploration of mechanical trading ...

  • Letters To S&C by Technical Analysis, Inc.

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Stocks & Commodities V. 23:4 (10-14): Letters To S&C by Technical Analysis, Inc. FUTURES LIQUIDITY Editor, I just received and enjoyed reading your magazine, STOCKS & COMMODITIES. In the February 2005 issue, on page 87, you list futures liquidity from most to least liquid. I find it amazing that you list the British pound (GBP) as being more liquid than the Canadian dollar (CD). I have traded on the floor at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange for 25 years and have traded actively in both the GBP and the CD pits. The CD pit is far more liquid than the GBP pit. While trading in the GBP pit, I wa...

  • Measuring Flags And Pennants by Markos Katsanos

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Stocks & Commodities V. 23:4 (22-31): Measuring Flags And Pennants by Markos Katsanos This new statistically derived formula can help you estimate price targets more accurately. Flags and pennants are my favorite formations, and I have used them in my trading for some time. In using them, I found that my exit strategy and profit objective was far from optimal. The classical method used for measuring these common and useful formations is simple and straightforward, but how accurate and reliable is it? It's difficult to find technical literature that provides any statistical studies on the sub...

  • Mind Control by Michael Bois, CFA, CTA

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Stocks & Commodities V. 23:4 (54-57): Mind Control by Michael Bois, CFA, CTA The psychology of trading has always been a struggle. Perhaps the techniques here could provide a solution. Not long ago, I interviewed a Standard & Poor's floor trader from the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) who recounted his first experience trading inside the pit. Prior to becoming a trader, he had been a clerk, relaying orders from his employer's desk to the trader inside the pit. As a clerk, his physical position was directly outside the pit, literally leaning on the rail separating the spaces, giving and re...

  • Traders' Resource: Courses And Seminars by Technical Analysis, Inc.

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Stocks & Commodities V. 23:4 (81-85): Traders' Resource: Courses And Seminars by Technical Analysis, Inc. They say that the more you learn, the more you know you need to learn. This is true in trading. If you're not fully prepared when you go to trade, you could be the one that the smart money profits from. Education is crucial in trading. If you don't step up to the line with the right tools and know-how to trade the markets, you might as well be gambling -- with the odds on the house's side.
