Indicators for Swing Trading – What’s Best?

There are several indicators that you can use to make money swing trading. A moving average is a popular indicator, and is used to validate the direction of an asset’s price behavior over a specified period of time. The moving average can be created in two basic styles, simple and exponential. Simple moving averages are the easiest to use and provide the most recent statistics. The exponential version gives you more recent data and is best suited for shorter-term investment stocks. The Donchian Channel is probably the most common and straightforward indicator. It helps you identify buy lows and sell highs. Another tool that can help you find a profitable trade is the OHLC indicator.

Identifying Bullish Stocks – Chart Set Ups for Bulls

Identifying a bullish stock chart involves identifying its key characteristics. Stocks that have a rocket-like trajectory should be avoided because they rarely last longer than a couple of weeks and are inevitably followed by a sharp decline. Bullish stock charts generally show a consistent price trend from the lower left to upper right. Large advances will be peppered with consolidations that work off of extreme overbought conditions. Instead of a rocket, these charts look more like an upward mountain slope. Bull flags form when a stock reaches a high point, breaks through its lower low and then rises again. A bull flag occurs when the stock exceeds the highest high point, which forces shorts to cover and buyers to get off the fence. Once a bull flag forms, the stock starts to rise and forms an uptrend. Similarly, a bear flag is an indicator that a stock is headed for a downward trend. Candlesticks show a day’s worth of price data. Each candlestick shows an opening price, a closing price, a high and a low. The “body” of a candlestick […]

Charts for Index Trading – The Tool For The Pro’s

A stock index chart is an important tool in a trader’s arsenal. This visual display of historical trends of the US market indexes provides a clear picture of where prices are headed. The charts are updated each Friday evening and are available to members. PRO members have access to complete versions of these charts. Non-PRO members can view data from 1980 until today. Traders can also view historical trendlines to identify support and resistance. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed below the rising 50-day EMA and has since dropped to a test of the 200-day EMA. It has not reclaimed this support, however, because bearish daily technical indicators are signaling that the support level is not going to hold. The MACD has crossed above its signal line, but remains in negative territory. The RSI has also failed to cross its 50-day EMA and is headed downward.
