About the MESA-Sabrient Trading Alerts

The MESA-Sabrient Trading Alerts employ MESA Software's algorithmic system for trading the stocks in the Sabrient Outlook Rankings.The Outlook Rankings reflect each stock’s relative probability of short-term upside or downside action based on Sabrient's proprietary quantitative fundamental analysis.

NOTE:  New subscribers should ignore the open positions and start their trading with the first entry alert that received.

  • The MESA-Sabrient system produces end-of-day trading signals after the market day’s closing bell for execution at the next open.  All trades are intended to be placed as market orders on open.
  • Exit signals are also specified for each open trade.  All trade exits are intended to be placed as market orders at the next open.
  • Long signals (buy) are produced from the top quartile of the Sabrient Outlook Rankings and short signals (sell short) are from the bottom quartile. Thus the technical signals are always in-sync with the fundamental rankings.
  • The number of open trades at any given time varies significantly with market conditions. 
  • The system produces more long trades than short ones.  Historically the ratio of longs to shorts has been about 10:1.
  • Hold times are typically less than one month.
  • Profits shown in the daily reports assume an initial investment of $10,000 per stock with no allowance for slippage or commissions. To convert the dollar profit to percentage, divide by 100. For example, if a stock’s profit was listed as $234, this would be equivalent to a 2.34% gain on the initial investment.

The Challenge: Improve our fundamentals-based rankings with a technical overlay.

Many traders took up the challenge. Only two succeeded in besting our results. Now we’re offering trading alerts based on their two technical systems.

Meet Trader #1

Trader #1 is a rocket scientist, John Ehlers. John is a retired Senior Engineering Fellow from one of the largest aerospace companies in the world. He has been a private trader since 1976 and is a respected authority in the field of technical trading in the futures markets. He is also a well-known author of several books on trading, including Rocket Science for Traders and MESA and Trading Market Cycles. His approach is unique.  John uses theories developed to analyze sound, heat and digital waves to remove the "noise" inherent in those transmissions and he applies the same analysis to a time series of stock movements to help predict a stock’s direction.

MESA-Sabrient Trading Alerts (RS2)

John Elhers saw the outstanding buy-and-hold performance of Sabrient’s fundamentally ranked equities–Sabrient’s Watch List–i.e., stocks ranked by David Brown, a former NASA scientist who was part of the lunar landing team. John applied his technical timing system to the watch list and improved performance.  From September 1 through December 31, 2009, the trades were evaluated via back-testing, but from January 1 through May 7, the trades were in real time.

With John Ehlers’ technical overlay on Sabrient’s fundamentally-ranked equities, the MESA-Sabrient Trading Alerts offers a combined profit potential which is way more than the sum of the two parts.
