  • At The Close by Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Stocks & Commodities V. 23:7 (97): At The Close by Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan It doesn't hurt to remember that the simplest of indicators can provide a great deal of information. I'm looking at the daily chart of the Standard & Poor's 500 index when I say this because I can't think of a better example of the behavior of the 50-day simple moving average (SMA). Note from the chart in Figure 1 how it acts as a resistance level. The average is sloping down, and on May 9, 2005 and the following day, prices hit that level and moved down. I have actually used this indicator for my long-term investments...

  • Look Back Before You Leap by Richard Bergner

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Look to the past to predict the future: It's a new way to predict commodity price action as you study a chart. How can you find good trading opportunities? Imagine, if you will, all the ways you've read or heard about how to do so. But if you're aware of those opportunities, you can be sure that others are as well, thus lessening your chances of profiting from them. If you want a different way to identify good trading opportunities, why not examine a market's behavior in reverse? That's right -- look to the past to mark trends that have a good chance of materializing, as you step toward the fu...

If history is any guide, knowing how and when individual companies perform within an index-tracking stock or commodity will help you identify profitable trading opportunities.

  • Targeting Your Pattern by Massimiliano Scorpio

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Stocks & Commodities V. 23:7 (58-63): Targeting Your Pattern by Massimiliano Scorpio Two-bar patterns: How to select, reorganize, and trade them. Previously, my articles were focused on finding your favorite configurations using EasyLanguage (EL). I started using a very simple methodology (the reversal pattern) and then continued observing the relationship between the open and the close, respective to the previous bar (hot zones). In this article I use a more sophisticated approach to show a "complete" way to select, recognize, and come up with statistics on specific two-bar patterns. You w...

  • Websites For Traders: SeekingAlpha.com by David Penn

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Stocks & Commodities V. 23:7 (36): Websites For Traders: SeekingAlpha.com by David Penn SEEKINGALPHA.COM One reason you don't tend to read too many restaurant reviews written while the reviewer is still sampling the cuisine is obvious: How can the reviewer provide a complete evaluation of the meal if he or she hasn't eaten the whole thing--appetizer to dessert? Something similar strikes me as I set out to introduce a fascinating new website called Seeking Alpha--or, more accurately, seekingalpha.com. While I haven't even come close to perusing all that this website has to offer in the way of n...
