  • At The Close by Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Stocks & Commodities V. 22:11 (130, 116): At The Close by Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan Just when I think I have a system in place and have it all figured out, the market pulls a fast one on me. Just when everything is moving along in one direction, something will happen to cause everyone to reverse direction, and very quickly. Whenever I see this happening, I can't help but remember a phrase I once came across that I still consider to be a perfect description of the financial markets: "Market participants are like a school of fish that all change direction at the same time." To give you an idea o...

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Stocks & Commodities V. 22:11 (78-81): Noise And Time Series by Clem Chambers Does signal processing help in determining future price movements? After reading this, you may be tempted to explore further. I t's an unhappy fact that thousands of people comb over market time series every single day. Whether they are drawing lines on paper, crunching numbers in Excel, or programming backtesters, they are all looking for the same thing: a way to make money trading using the historical record to predict the future.

  • Selecting Top Performers by Jongseon Kim

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Stocks & Commodities V. 22:11 (14-20): Selecting Top Performers by Jongseon Kim Too often we enter a trade only to find that the stock price just isn't going anywhere. Here's how you can avoid falling into this trap. When should you trade and when should you not? I answered that question in my article, "Trading In Tempo With TRIX." The next hurdle before entering a trade is to select stocks that will give you the best rate of return. If you choose a stock that is slow moving, you are bound to be disappointed, because even in a strong market these stocks will give you a low rate of return. Yo...

  • The Market's Second Chance by Donald Jones

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Stocks & Commodities V. 22:11 (28-34): The Market's Second Chance by Donald Jones In my STOCKS & COMMODITIES articles on auction market analysis (see suggested reading), I gave examples of making trades with value-based information. Implicitly, these were all "first-chance," breakout trades. You do the analysis, the market meets the entry criteria and, boom! you initiate the trade. In the real world, we all sometimes miss that first chance. Most of us know better than to chase a trade. But on occasion, the market offers a second chance. Recognizing a valid second-chance opportunity is more d...

  • Trading Currencies Using Multiple Time Frames by Kathy Lien and Patrick Dyess

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Stocks & Commodities V. 22:11 (60-65): Trading Currencies Using Multiple Time Frames by Kathy Lien and Patrick Dyess When trading currencies, it's best to get the big picture first and then use a shorter time frame to select entries and exits. With $1.5 trillion in daily turnover, the foreign exchange market is the largest market in the world. Previously, access to this market was restricted to hedge funds, large commodity trading advisors (CTAs), and institutional investors due to regulation, capital requirements, and technology.
