Good luck trading.



Thanks for your Votes and Follows. They mean a lot.


-01- NASDAQ -- Daily

NASDAQ daily chart with key indicators. Buy/Sell signals determined by the 5-10-20 Timer, chart 3 below.

-02- Risk Ratios

A set of key ratios using the S&P 500. The market does best when these charts are climbing.

-03- The 5-10-20 Timer -- Momentum

The 5-10-20 Timer is among the earliest momentum-based timers. It's good with IT trend changes, but less useful in choppy, trendless market or during short corrections. It lags the market at inflection points, but helps avoid false reversal signals in either direction.

-04- TOF Ratio -- Options Sentiment

The TOF ratio helps visualize sentiment among options traders. Bullish call buying creates climbing lines in the chart above and is generally positive for stocks. The Blue/Red 21/50-day EMA crossovers trigger Buy and Sell signals. This ratio was first created by long-time board poster Richard McRanie [The Old Fool (TOF)], and I've been a big fan of it ever since. Thanks, TOF.

-05- McClellan Timer -- Market Breadth

The McClellan is a benchmark breadth indicator. When used as a timer, it moves you in and out of the market faster than either the 5-10-20 or the NASI. This is useful for scalping quick rallies and avoiding short-term pullbacks. The McClellan is a sensitive indicator with a noticeable margin of error, and is prone to head fakes in either direction. This is especially true during sideways markets.

-06- Dow Theory

The market performs best when Industrials, Transports and Utilities all trade above their 50-day EMA. Signal strength is at its peak when these charts hit new highs, especially in combination.

-07- VIX -- Annotated

The VIX annotated with market events.

-08- Safety Trade

A set of ratio charts that visualize the flight-to-safety trade. These charts improve during market weakness, and weaken during market rallies. This makes them useful in confirming the quality and intensity of rallies and pullbacks.

-09- NASDAQ 60-minute -- Short-term Indicator

This chart shows short-term market health to help identify entry and exit points. Strong rallies stay above the black one-week EMA, and stocks act best when the black line is above the red. Gets noisy around inflection points and trend reversals.

-10- NYSE Tick -- Short-term Indicator

The Tick chart shows the short-term health of the NYSE. The black line is the three-day EMA, and the light purple line is the one-day EMA. Stocks act best when the black line is above zero and climbing. Crossovers of the 1-day and 3-day EMA's in either direction identify short-term market bias.
