Big reversal tops and bottoms occur at the peaks and valleys of long term moves. Smaller and tradable tops and bottoms also occur in trending moves. With appropriate timing and a coninuing trend, buying in an uptrend or selling in a downtrend is low risk. Walt will show you how to identify trends and trade bottoms and tops with three mechanical trading techniques.
You will acquire specific techniques for identifying trends and you will learn how to trade with the trend. You will also learn how to anticipate and trade trend reversals. Walt will show you mechanical buy/sell signals applicable to any market, in any time frame.
Finally, he will provide you with some simple, profitable money management techniques to reduce risk and take advantage of the big moves when they occur.
You will leave Walter's workshop with a working knowledge of how to combine cycles and oscillators to identify cycle tops and bottoms as they occur plus five specific oscillator/cycle combinations that you can immediately apply to the markets - weekly, daily and intra-day. The workshop is presented in two sections.
CYCLES - In the first part of his workshop, Walt will explain the four dominant cycles and discuss techniques to find these cycles in the market. The development and use of timing bands and Fibonacci ratios will be examined to determine the timing of the cycles and specific techniques will be illustrated for determining the future price levels of cycle tops and bottoms.
OSCILLATORS - Several techniques will be presented to improve the performance of oscillators, often turning a mediocre one into a powerhouse. Walter will explain how to combine oscillators with cycles to identify tops and bottoms as they are occurring, and will show specific oscillator cycle combinations to identify cycle tops and bottoms mechanically.
Most traders react to the market, their brokers, and their emotions. When you react because the unexpected has occurred, you are out of control. When you respond as part of a pre-determined game plan, you are in control. In this workshop, Walt will share with you his 4-Step Program of Controlled Trading that will keep you in control of your trading.
Part 1 - Market Analysis. "The trend is your friend;" and not only do we want to know what the trend is, we want to anticipate when the trend will reverse. With cycle analysis, you can both define the trend (long-term, intermediate-term, short-term) and anticipate tops and bottoms (both major tops and trading tops). Part 2 - Oscillator Analysis. Both cycles and oscillators are dependent upon time and price. Quite often cycle highs and lows are accompanied by oscillator extremes. When you know these extreme levels, tops and bottoms can be identified with confidence. Walt also presents easy-to-use techniques to fine-tune the oscillators and build tradable oscillator/cycle combinations to buy bottoms and sell tops. The amazing 3-10 oscillator is a simple and powerful indicator of tops and bottoms. Part 3 - Market Entry and Exit. To be in control, we must first determine the time frame for which we are trading. All too often we use a short-term entry technique and a short-term stop while planning a long-term trade. By defining the time frames before we enter the market, we can apply the correct market entry and exit techniques using weekly, daily, and intra-day techniques to buy on weakness and strength, and to sell on strength and weakness. Part 4 - Controlled Risk Money Management. Walt's "controlled risk" money management will show you how to stay in control of the trade at all times, from planning the trade to market exit.
