  • Maximizing Bond Fund Profits by Jay Kaeppel

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Maximizing Bond Fund Profits by Jay Kaeppel A new indicator based on Barron's Gold Mining Index is introduced for timing bond mutual funds. The proliferation in bond mutual funds in recent years has created both good news and bad news for investors. The good news: Income investors can now select from funds investing in specific types of bonds with specific maturities.

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...On Trendlines, Money Flow Index And The Elliott Wave by Brian D. Green Here's an example of wave and indicator analysis using the money flow index, trendlines and Elliott wave.

  • SIDEBAR: The Money Flow Index

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...How to calculate the money flow index, a volume-weighted form of the RSI. The money flow index (MFI) is a volume-weighted form of the relative strength index (RSI). Instead of using up closes versus down closes, the MFI compares today's average price to yesterday's average price and then weighs the average price by volume to calculate money flow (MF). The ratio of the summed positive and negative money flows are then normalized to be on a scale of zero to 100. The following are steps with which to build a 14-period MFI, using as an example the price data for Boeing (BA)....

  • Studying Price Behavior by Michael Daley

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Price behavior? Can you really read it? This article points out ways to look at price behavior to give you insight into possible consistencies, such as how much today's range typically overlaps yesterday's range. Not only that, how often does today's range not include yesterday's closing price? Being armed with such knowledge could help you to make trading decisions by knowing the characteristics of your favorite markets. It is a well-known fact that markets spend more time in sideways consolidations than they do trending strongly in a given direction. Regardless of what phase they are in, h...
