  • Clarity Using The Bollinger Bandwidth Indicator

    A Technique for Better Bollinger Bands® Analysis

    Bollinger Bands are by far one the best indicators for analysis of sideways price action in stocks, finding compression patterns early before High Frequency Trading HFT price surges, and visual assistance with Spatial Pattern Recognition Skills™ for beginning traders. However for clarity using the Bollinger Bandwidth Indicator is a better choice for Swing and Day Traders.

    Spatial Pattern Recognition Skills are critical for stock traders. These skills take time and practice to hone to an intuitive level that professionals take for granted. Bollinger Bands are popular with beginning and novice traders, as the bands make it far easier to see the compression of a stock price trend, which is a common pattern prior to a huge breakout move by HFTs or Professional Traders.

  • How To Specialize In A Trading Style

    10 Tips On What To Do To Specialize

    Previously in one of my Student support publications I suggested how to specialize in a trading style.

    I had a student write to me about that publication and here is what he said, "Over the past few years I've been quite successful in my trading thanks to you and your course. About a year and a half ago, I was able to quit my job and now enjoy the freedom and quality-of-life that full-time trading affords. I thank you for that. In one of your e-mails, you noted that there are many trading styles and suggested that we "specialize" in one to maximize our effectiveness. I did exactly that…"

    The student took my concept of becoming a specialist and created his own unique trading style.

    A specialist reaps higher returns because they are focused, and certain kinds of stocks behave in a certain way because a small section of Market Participant Groups dominate in that stock. In other words, certain traders trade certain types of stocks. If you learn to read a type of stock really well, you will be able to anticipate the patterns with far more accuracy.
