Market Timing Signal Update


Quick update on the markets, hope everybody had a fantastic holiday season and ready to take on 2014.

All three of my timing signals remain upwardly biased, but they are weakening so beware entering new positions right now without an exit strategy.

I've been in cash since late December as there aren't that many good reward/risk opportunities out there. Biotechs seem to be offering the best chart patterns but those aren't the sort of stocks that lead a market higher. Often times these stocks can go up in defensive market enviornments. Smaller priced issues have been coming up on my scans and one should only devote a small portion of your portfolio to stocks such as these.

Here is a quick glance at my color guard. The 3 squares represent long term, mid term, and short term and it takes all three signals to flip for the signal to be bearish or bullish.

As you can see, upward, but weakening, with the Dow being the strongest market and not even flinching.

On top of knowing the market trend it's important to have the right trade ideas. Since June 2013, in an effort to provide maximum transparency within my trade suggestion service, tradewithZEN, I've live tweeted all my personal trades.

    • 49 winners with the avg gain being 6.18%
    • 12 losers with the avg loss being 3.51%

I'd like to say I'm offering a sale on my service, but at a mere $25/month it's already priced 60-80% below most other trading services and I've recently added a new IPO trading strategy that I'm really excited about while keeping the price the same.

Here are some of my testimonials.

All i know is you have provided the most "intimate" advice and mentoring any service offers. I could pay a million people to get in on their "members only info" or their "bull^%$# newsletters" but it's not as personal as you have made this. ~Parker

Your work is most prescient! @azpat0

Good call on PNK. I was able to get in at right time! ~Mahesh

So far I'm happy with the service. Pat yourself on the back because I can be a tough customer. :^) Lovin' the charts. I am highly impressed with your method, the trades you've taken, and how you've managed them. You've been a treat to follow during a tricky October. @mastersnan

After 2 months of being a subscriber, I just wanted to say thank you. Your trading methods have worked better for me than any other I have tried. @davuni67

Thanks for your great work. I typically use my own entry/exit but your watchlists now have me fishing in the right pond on a consistent basis, huge help. @ljasonclemson1

Learning a lot from you and am becoming more confident myself. The triggered stocks from your watchlist are performing great. Awesome service. Highly recommended. Thanks for the service! @romandtkvch

The service is really helping me come up with a trade style. Nothing like tradewithzen out there. @chartlearning

Loving the service so far, thanks for putting it together. @tradnup

Appreciate the service, saves me time finding strong stocks. Keep up the good work. @rotorsky

After following TradewithZen for about a month now, I wanted to write you to say its a very informative and easy-to-follow product that definitely gave me new insight into the way you look at stocks with strength. I've always been more of an intermediate-term trader but seeing your 15- and 60-minute style, in addition to daily, has really benefitted me - especially having three likely opportunities to enter trades. Thank you for that and sharing your experience. @p_dot55

Really appreciating your service as it is making sense for me. Much appreciated!! Your mentorship is much appreciated Jeff! @stutriplev

To your trading prosperity,
