  • Nasdaq Advances -- Declines by Dennis D. Peterson

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Nasdaq Advances -- Declines by Dennis D. Peterson This market breadth indicator remains one of the most popular ways to gauge market movement. Market indices can rise on the backs of just a few stocks. This is especially true with the Standard & Poor's 500 and the Nasdaq Composite, since both are weighted by market capitalization. Market breadth indicators that can picture the entire market help traders and investors identify market momentum. The three measures typically used to characterize the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), Nasdaq, and the American Stock Exchange (AMEX) are advances ? decl...

  • Optimizing With Hilbert Indicators by Roger Darley

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Optimizing With Hilbert Indicators by Roger Darley Adjusting your trading signals to account for what's actually happening in the market can mean a nice profit for you. If I knew what the optimum moving average length (or any other filter 's length) was on a daily basis, then my indicators and trading strategies could be optimized for what is actually happening in the market. John Ehlers's recent articles in the March and May 2000 issues of STOCKS & COMMODITIES concerning adaptive indicators for traders now make it possible to do just that --optimize trading strategies for what is actually ha...

  • Options Or Stops? by Joe Luisi

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Options Or Stops? by Joe Luisi Options may cost less and give you more flexibility than outright stops. Here's how to choose between options and stops and some ways of using both throughout the life of the trade. Stops are essential, but they don't have to be orders to buy or sell stock or futures. Options are sometimes preferable to futures or stocks, due to their limited risk:if you own them, you can only lose the cost of the option. Here 's how to go about it.

  • Traders' Resource: Hardware

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Traders' Resource: Hardware Hardware choices these days often boil down to getting the fastest processor and the most memory you can afford, together with a cable connection or another high-bandwidth connection for quotes. Dual processors aren't too much for some of the software that's available for traders. The new LCD screens are much easier on the eyes, so pay up for those.

  • Two-Day Price Patterns by Martin J. Pring

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Two-Day Price Patterns by Martin J. Pring Coming at the end of a trend, these two-day patterns are solid signals of a reversal. Here's the last of Pring's three articles on price patterns. Two-day price pattern formations, unlike others we have discussed, take just one or two days to complete and have a relatively short-term significance. I refer to them as "one-" or "two-day" patterns, but the wording could just as easily apply to weekly or monthly bars. I have even referred to this phenomenon on intraday charts as one-or two-bar price patterns, because that is what they are. In retrospect,...

  • Which Inflation Rate? by Alex Saitta and Yuxin Li

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Which Inflation Rate? by Alex Saitta and Yuxin Li So you're going to use an inflation rate to gauge the market you're interested in. Which one are you going to use? Which one fits your needs? Bond yields provide a fixed coupon or income. As the rate of inflation rises, the coupon's buying power declines; as the rate of inflation falls, more goods and services can be purchased with that fixed coupon. For this reason bond yields are strongly linked to the inflation rate, and the inflation rate is of paramount importance to bond investors. Which inflation rate, though? When talking about infla...
