Using the MACD to Trade Binary options

Momentum in the capital markets is similar to the momentum of riding a bicycle especially down a hill.  The more speed a bicycle rider has, the further they are likely to go.  The same goes for market momentum, so the key is figuring out how to measure it, and use that information to generate trading signals.  One of the best tools to use to measure momentum is the MACD – Moving Average Convergence Divergence Index.  The MACD measures the difference between two moving average, referred to as the spread, and compares the spread to a moving average of the spread.

Is Wal-Mart the "Canary in the Mine"?

In today's short educational video, we're going to be examining the stock of Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT). We will be using Fibonacci retracement, R.N. Elliott's wave principal, and the moving average convergence divergence, better known as the MACD indicator, to analyze Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT).

The video runs about seven minutes and I think you'll find it very interesting on several different fronts. Putting all of these methods together in addition to our Trade Triangle technology produced some excellent results for this market. I also have a special bonus for you at the end of the video.

I hope you enjoy the video and more importantly learn how to use the technical tools mentioned so you can add them to your trading arsenal.

Today's Video Update: Stocks Subdued After Record Week

Hello traders everywhere! Jeremy Lutz here, with your mid-day market update for Monday, the 6th of May.

Stocks are little changed after record week
The stock market cleared new milestones Friday after the government reported that employers added more workers. However, that hasn't translated into a strong Monday open as investors turned more cautious, focusing once again on the problems facing the global economy. Though growth in the U.S. is holding up well, it is slowing in China. The 17 country Eurozone remains in recession and unemployment there has been hitting a series of record highs.

Watch Today's Video Update Here

On Investor's Minds:
United States - homegrown terrorists
North Korea - an agent for China?
Europe - ITALY has a government. YEAH!
The FED - OMG do they know what they are doing?
May 19th – Debt ceiling suspension expire

Every Success,
Jeremy Lutz

Some Thoughts On Oil And My Favorite Indicator: MACD

Today we’ve asked Tony Edwards to share his favorite indicator with our readers. Tony Edwards has been an active independent trader for nearly 20 years. He trades an extremely wide range of instruments with a special focus on YM, ES, 6E, CL and GC. He offers traders daily, unique support and resistance levels (“TraderSmarts Numbers”) as well as Live Trade Alerts via www.tradersmarts.net.

Today I thought I would talk about my favorite indicator, the MACD.

I could start by telling you what the MACD is (stands for Moving Average Convergence Divergence and plots 2 lines and a histogram. The MACD line, or the fast line, is the 12 day EMA - the 26 day EMA, the signal line, or slow line, is the 9 day EMA of the MACD line, and the MACD Histogram is the MACD line - the signal line) or who invented it (Gerald Appel in the late 1970's) but instead I am going to tell you how I use and interpret it.

Baseline for Active Investing

Today's author is Jackie Ann Patterson, the editor of BackTesting Report. Previously Jackie Ann showed us how to pick up on a potential trend change as well as how to recognize a mature trend using the MACD indicator. Today she has returned to the Trader's Blog to share a method for testing your trading strategy.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
One of the ways that traders use to determine the success of a potential strategy is to use a baseline. A baseline is a benchmark or a standard for comparison. For example, some investors will use the gain/loss of the S&P 500 as a baseline of market performance. That may be useful for investing long-term in large-caps, but less applicable to active investing and shorter-term trading. This article shows you a different method of forming baselines and the win rate results for two types of stock market participants. [Read more...]

A Simple Strategy for Day Trading

Today I'd like to welcome Markus Heitkoetter from Rockwelltrading.com. Markus' article below dives into what most traders just don't get. Enjoy the article, comment below, and visit Rockwelltrading.com to see what Markus's next webinar event is.

==================================================================

With dozens of indicators, hundreds of chart patterns, and thousands of combination's between the two, it’s no wonder that many traders struggle to find and enter trades with confidence. “Analysis paralysis” is a common problem for many traders, and it can even keep experienced traders from taking good trades. It’s easy to plot a dozen indicators on your chart, but what are they really telling you? Are you able to make split second decisions when there is an opportunity in the market? If not, it’s probably time to simplify your trading.

One of the easiest ways I’ve found to keep things simple, and avoid being a victim of "analysis paralysis", is to use a strategy that I call, "The Simple Strategy".
