"I use the DecisionPoint timing signals and indicators to find the strongest possible investment opportunities while simultaneously limiting risk exposure. The DecisionPoint Analysis Approach emphasizes the interpretation of mechanical signals generated from price trend, market conditions, momentum and sentiment measures, among others."
Together, Carl and Erin contribute the DecisionPoint branded content on StockCharts.com. The DecisionPoint blog contains free articles that go beyond the normal DP reports and help investors get the most out of the DP analysis tools available on our website.
