  • Forex Focus: The Alligator Indicator by Alexander Sabodin

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Forex Focus: The Alligator Indicator by Alexander Sabodin Here's a trading system you can apply to trending markets such as the currencies. There is a moving average?based trading system that I have found works best in trending markets, with its main instrument the alligator indicator. The alligator was first described by Bill Williams in his book New Trading Dimensions. Some software packages include the alligator indicator, but if it's not available, all you have to do is take three smoothed moving averages using 13, eight, and five periods and shift them by eight, five, and three bars int...

  • Forward Testing by Martha Stokes, CMT

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Forward Testing by Martha Stokes, CMT A Solution To Backtesting A simple technique, it can reveal the true profit or loss capabilities of a trading system. Backtesting has been popular among traders for many years. The concept is that you take a set number of months or years and test a trading strategy over that period's data. You calculate the average results and performance of that trading strategy as it performed during that time. In theory this sounds like a fantastic tool for traders -- backtest and know if the strategy works. But that is not what backtesting this way actually gives a t...

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Letters To S&C by Technical Analysis, Inc. SVAPO (SHORT-TERM VOLUME AND PRICE OSCILLATOR) Editor, I enjoyed Sylvain Vervoort's article in the November 2007 issue of STOCKS & COMMODITIES on the SVAPO indicator ("Short-Term Volume And Price Oscillator").

  • Q&A by Don Bright

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Q&A by Don Bright NOW IF Can someone tell me if all the assets of a company were worth $1 million and the total number of shares available for the full amount of the company were 100,000 (each share being $10) and regardless of the revenue, the company (always) returned 10% net on the $ million dollars each year -- that is, $100,000 -- at what price range would the company's shares trade the second year? How about the third year? Now if we take away the company's assets and say the company leases everything but total revenue was $1 million, with net income $100,000, at what price range should...

  • Stocks & Commodities V. 26:1 (51) Explore Your Options by Tom Gentile

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Explore Your Options by Tom Gentile DOLLAR BOUNCE The US dollar has performed miserably against the euro in recent years. I think it's overdone, but I have heard that some analysts say the euro could move all the way up to 1.50. If so, I think the dollar will bounce from there. What strategies can I use? I have heard of shorting gold. Does that make sense? The dollar has really suffered serious losses against the euro in recent years. From November 2006 to November 2007, the euro rose from less than 1.20 to its current levels near 1.47. Seven years ago, one euro could only buy 0.82 dollars!...

Likewise, traders are free to choose different parameters to apply to each of the key criteria. This month's article lays the groundwork for the strategy pieces to follow in the months ahead. Option trading volume has proliferated in recent years. Part of this is ...
