Bollinger Band Squeeze
Introduction
The Bollinger Band Squeeze occurs when volatility falls to low levels and the Bollinger Bands narrow. According to John Bollinger, periods of low volatility are often followed by periods of high volatility. Therefore, a volatility contraction or narrowing of the bands can foreshadow a significant advance or decline. Once the squeeze play is on, a subsequent band break signals the start of a new move. A new advance starts with a squeeze and subsequent break a…text/html2019-06-24T19:39:01+0000Anonymous (anonymous@undisclosed.example.com)CCI Correction

CCI Correction
Introduction
Developed by Donald Lambert, the Commodity Channel Index (CCI) is a momentum oscillator that can be used to identify a new trend or warn of extreme conditions. This strategy uses weekly CCI to dictate the trading bias when it surges above +100 or plunges below -100, which are key levels noted by Lambert. Once the trading bias is set, daily CCI is used to generate trading signals when it reaches its extremes.text/html2019-06-24T19:39:01+0000Anonymous (anonymous@undisclosed.example.com)CVR3 VIX Market Timing

CVR3 VIX Market Timing
Introduction
The CVR3 is a short-term trading strategy using the CBOE Volatility Index ($VIX) to time the S&P 500. Developed by Larry Connors and Dave Landry, this strategy looks for overextended VIX readings to signal excessive fear or greed in the stock market. Excessive fear is used to generate buy signals in this mean-reversion strategy, while excessive greed is used to generate sell signals.text/html2019-06-24T19:39:01+0000Anonymous (anonymous@undisclosed.example.com)DecisionPoint Price Momentum Model (PMM)

DecisionPoint Price Momentum Model (PMM)
Overview
The DecisionPoint Price Momentum Model (PMM) is a mechanical trading system developed by DecisionPoint's Carl Swenlin in the 1990's. The model favors stocks that are moving higher with strong momemtum. The model is still used today to create the DecisionPoint Tracker Reports found on StockCharts.com.text/html2019-06-24T19:39:01+0000Anonymous (anonymous@undisclosed.example.com)DecisionPoint Trend Model
https://school.stockcharts.com/doku.php?id=trading_strategies:decisionpoint_trend_model&rev=1561405141&do=diff
DecisionPoint Trend Model
Introduction
The trend is the observable direction of the market – up, down, or sideways – and a person who acts in concert with the market trend can significantly increase their odds of success. The reason for this is that the trend of the market normally indicates the direction of most stocks and sectors. In fact, during a strong bull market, over 90% of stocks can be trending upward together, which means our odds of picking a winning stock are nine out of ten.text/html2019-06-24T19:39:01+0000Anonymous (anonymous@undisclosed.example.com)Gap Trading Strategies

Gap Trading Strategies
Introduction
Gap trading is a simple and disciplined approach to buying and shorting stocks. Essentially, one finds stocks that have a price gap from the previous close, then watches the first hour of trading to identify the trading range. Rising above that range signals a buy, while falling below it signals a short.text/html2019-07-10T01:19:46+0000Anonymous (anonymous@undisclosed.example.com)Harmonic Patterns

Introduction
Chart Pattern recognition is the basic and primary ability any trader develops in Technical Analysis. It may be basic development, but the perfection of pattern recognition takes extensive practice and repetitive exposure.

Introduction
Even though the name implies one cloud, the Ichimoku Cloud is really a set of indicators designed as a standalone trading system. These indicators can be used to identify support and resistance, determine trend direction and generate trading signals.text/html2019-06-24T19:39:01+0000Anonymous (anonymous@undisclosed.example.com)Moving Momentum

Moving Momentum
Introduction
Many trading strategies are based on a process, not a single signal. This process often involves a series of steps that ultimately lead to a signal. Typically, chartists first establish a trading bias or long-term perspective. Second, chartists wait for pullbacks or bounces that will improve the risk-reward ratio. Third, chartists look for a reversal that indicates a subsequent upturn or downturn in price.

Narrow Range Day NR7
Introduction
Narrow range patterns come from Tony Crabbel's book, Day Trading with Short Term Price Patterns & Opening Range Breakout. Even though the book, which was published in 1990, is currently out of print, many of its ideas are still effective. In particular, the NR4 (Narrow Range 4) and NR7 (Narrow Range 7) patterns are quite popular with short-term traders. The philosophy behind the pattern is similar to the Bollinger Band Squeeze, that being that a volatility con…text/html2019-06-24T19:39:01+0000Anonymous (anonymous@undisclosed.example.com)Percent Above 50-Day SMA

Percent Above 50-Day SMA
Introduction
The percentage of stocks above the 50-day SMA is a breadth indicator that measures the degree of participation in an index - in this case, the S&P 500. This article will show two methods to use this indicator as part of a trading strategy. First, a long-term moving average can be applied to identify the general tone of the market, which is either bullish or bearish. Second, a short-term moving average can be used to identify pullbacks and bounces. Putting …text/html2019-06-24T19:39:01+0000Anonymous (anonymous@undisclosed.example.com)Percent B Money Flow

PMM Backtesting Results
This is a discussion of the back testing for the DecisionPoint Price Momentum Model (PMM). DecisionPoint did most of this backtesting during most of the 1990s, which was mostly a period of bull market conditions. Using the PMM, we back tested data on 32 of the Fidelity Select Mutual Funds from the beginning of January 1990 to the end of January 1998 - a little over seven years.text/html2019-06-24T19:39:01+0000Anonymous (anonymous@undisclosed.example.com)RSI(2)

RSI(2)
Introduction
Developed by Larry Connors, the 2-period RSI strategy is a fairly simple mean-reversion trading strategy designed to buy or sell securities after a corrective period. Traders should look for buying opportunities when 2-period RSI moves below 10, which is considered deeply oversold. Conversely, traders can look for short-selling opportunities when 2-period RSI moves above 90. This is a rather aggressive short-term strategy designed to participate in an ongoing trend.

Trend direction and relative strength are important components of any investment strategy designed to outperform the overall market. This article will show chartists how to use the slope indicator to define trend direction and quantify relative strength.

Introduction
The Stochastic Pop was developed by Jake Bernstein and modified by David Steckler, who wrote a corresponding article for Stocks & Commodities Magazine in August 2000. Bernstein's original Stochastic Pop is a trading strategy that identifies price pops when the Stochastic Oscillator surges above 80. Steckler modified this strategy by adding conditional filters using the Average Directional Index (ADX) and the weekly Stochastic Oscillator.

Swing Charting
What do Point & Figure charts, Kagi charts, Renko charts, Filtered Waves and ZigZag have in common? They are all related to swing charting in some way. Swing charting follows a simple concept: additional information to the chart is made when a new price swing penetrates the level of the prior swing in the same direction. The basis of this type of charting is the filter. Once prices have moved by the distance specified by this filter, a new line is drawn next to the previous one. …text/html2019-06-24T19:39:01+0000Anonymous (anonymous@undisclosed.example.com)The 'Last' Stochastic Technique

The 'Last' Stochastic Technique
Introduction
Many techniques using the Stochastic Oscillator produce consistent losses over time. In particular, overbought/oversold signals often degrade overall performance because one does not take advantage of longer trends.

Over the past century, there have been nine holidays during which the Exchanges have traditionally been closed.

Trend Quantification and Asset Allocation
Introduction
Long-term trend reversals are often processes, not sudden events. Think of the long-term trend as a super tanker, which requires time to reverse direction. Speedboats, on the other hand, represent the short-term trend, which can quickly reverse. Moreover, the long-term trend can range from several months to a few years. With this in mind, chartists should consider more than one long-term timeframe when defining the long-term trend. This ar…
