Good morning traders, I'm about to awaken you to a world of investing and trading that you probably never even knew existed.

There are different levels of analysis on the stock market.  theh big 3 are fundamental analysis, technical analysis, and sentiment analysis.  Each of these can be broken down from a market, sector, stock approach. 

Fundamental analysis is simply looking at the financials of the company and making a determination on their future.

Technical analysis is looking at their charts and making a determination on the future price action based on the past.

And the much less understood one is sentiment analysis, which is looking at the overall attitudes of investors and traders - and making a prediction on future price action.

The one key to all of these is you use them to make a determination on future price action - that's how you make money in the stock market.  So if something you look at doesn't help you with predicting the future, dump it.  It's wasting your time and mental energy.

Here's a little bit about me - since I'm new to this service.

I have been writing financial newsletters since the 90's.  I wrote for others until 2004 when i formed my own stock market timing newsletter called the Daily Stock Barometer.

The Barometer is basically a algorythm that takes into account price action and market sentiment - to help me forecast the future of the stock market, and that's what I advise my clients on.

I do have a blog, you can read my stock market blog here.  There is so much to write about in the financial markets, that I put most of my rants there.   I follow a lot of stock market data and report my findings there.  Bascially if there's a data set out there that someone says it helps you with trading, I've put it in my data base and ran tests on it.  That's what I do.  I'm a numbers guy (ok, I'm a Mechanical Engineer, with a math minor).

But that's not it.  I am also a professional trader and I run a small publishing company, where I identify other traders with something to offer and provide their newsletters.  You can see some of the other financial newsletters we offer here.

And finally, I do operate a small affiliate business.  This may sound odd, but the main reason I do is because I distribute my services through some affiliate markets.  So I decided to learn the Affiliate Marketing Business and put together a site for the sole purpose of helping others sell my financial newsletters.  We offer a 50% recurring affiliate commission.  That means if you get someone to sign up to one of our newsletters, you get half the subscription price for as long as they remain subscribed.  And I've had some subscribers that date back to 2004 (and earlier).  You can learn more by visiting your affiliate guide.

That's it.  I'll be publishing periodic updates here and through my blog.  I hope this helped you and encourage you to join me.  My advice can help all of your financial positions.
