December 8 Daily Market Comments

Monday’s indecisive trading confirms the markets indecisive nature, a redundant redundancy. These market conditions make the T-line and important factor. Stay predominantly long but have a few short positions in the portfolio. The 18,000 level in the Dow needs to be watched. It should be where everybody is watching to see if it will break through or start profit-taking. Watch the charts.

Stock Market for Dummies?

Stock Market for Dummies? I think not…

Most investors become proficient at investing after some painful experiences. When should we learn how to invest? Well, while we learn everything else when we are young probably. It should be part of our education. Most investors realize this when they discover that the investment professionals have no better clear understanding of how to invest than they do. If the markets go up, they help you make money. If the markets go down, they help you lose money. Are they actually better at anticipating the stock market? Who wrote the all too popular book stock market for dummies? Or is it stock investing for dummies? I don’t remember…but I do know this…

If you have taken the steps to educate yourself in stock market trading, you will find that the candlestick signal investment method is based upon common sense investment procedures. Most investors spend years accumulating assets only to find themselves without the knowledge of how to make those assets grow.

Through the use of technical analysis tools like candlestick chart formations the trader is able to anticipate market trends, market reversal, and successfully trade market volatility.

doji greenThrough the use of candlestick patterns such as the doji candlestick (see image), traders are able to identify changes in market sentiment (such as the market indecision that the doji indicates.)

Additionally, if you combine candlestick signals with the fundamentals of stock analysis such as margin of safety, intrinsic stock value, and price to earnings ratio you will begin to see a new way of investing that just makes sense.

Combine your basic candlestick analysis education with the tools available to members of my forum and you will have a nice foundation in which to see your assets finally grow. Yes, of course beginning with a stock market for dummies book of some sort will get you the started, but if you are reading this you are probably already ahead of the game.
