    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...A Put/Call Ratio Oscillator To Pinpoint Market Conditions by John Summa Who says the put/call ratio doesn't work anymore? Here's an oscillator that's great for pinpointing intermediate market tops and bottoms. What's the ideal time to write an option? The ideal time to write a deep out-of-the-money   (DOTM) put or call options credit spread? While charts may tell you when to exit such a position, the correct use of put/call ratios offer an excellent way of determining just when to enter your trade. Here's one approach to interpreting equity-only put/call ratios, combined with my own volume-...

  • Taking The Tech Sector Apart --Technically by Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Taking The Tech Sector Apart -- Technically by Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan The recent downfall in technology stocks came as a shock to some traders. Here's how you could have protected your profits. You would find that a picture is truly worth a thousand words if you were to glance at the chart of the Nasdaq Composite in Figure 1. The chart gives you the overall picture of the performance of the technology sector. From October 1999 to early March 2000, the Nasdaq enjoyed one of the greatest bull rides in history. During this period, traders and investors were heavily invested in the technology se...

  • Traders' Resource:Data Services

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Traders' Resource Data Services If you thought brokerages have had to face a new world, think of data services. The advent of the Internet has made available many pieces of software with dedicated access to securities data maintained by the software vendor. This gives you, the buyer, fewer choices when you buy the software, and it is now a key issue to sort out when investigating software, particularly Web-based software. On the one hand, all the data maintenance hassles are taken out of your hands; on the other, the vendor may be too casual for your tastes in how they maintain the data you...

  • Trading Stochastic Pops by David Steckler

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Trading Stochastic Pops by David Steckler You can identify breakouts using stochastic pops. What are they, anyway? Many equity traders strive to identify stocks that are ready to break out and begin a sustained price move up. The difficulty lies in identifying which stocks are getting ready to break out and determining when the breakout will occur. One technique I like to use to identify breakouts is the stochastic pop. The ""pop"" comes about when the stochastic indicator goes above the 70 to 80 level. Instead of reversing, however, the stock keeps going and momentum continues to rise. ""S...

  • Watching DJIA Breakouts by Mark Vakkur, M.D.

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Catching DJIA Breakouts by Mark Vakkur, M.D. Buying breakouts in the Dow Jones Industrial Average works well - but there are caveats. If the trend is your friend, the simplest way to use that idea is to buy only those markets that are breaking out to new highs. But is this really a good strategy? As it turns out, at least for the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA), breakouts are very useful in identifying periods of increased profitability. I studied breakouts on the DJIA from February 1988 to November 1998. If breakouts truly are useful, buying a breakout over this 11-year span should have...
