What's the market doing today?
If you know the answer to that question, then you "trade the trend" and increase your probabilities for success. That's common sense. With The Ichimoku Edge, we go further than this. We add multiple layers of probabilities.
Most traders in the U.S. have never heard of Ichimoku. Since it's the title of this service, I'll tell you a little about it. Roughly translated, Ichimoku is Japanese for "man standing on mountain top". The idea is that when we are standing on a mountain top, we are able to see things more clearly. Our perspective of time and history are enlarged. Since we see more, then we can also make better decisions.
I discovered it by accident in 2009 and I started applying it to my trading. Rather than merely looking at past data (as is the case with most "western" indicators), Ichimoku looks at past data as well as future projections of Support and Resistance. Knowing the past and peering into the future, we are able to make smarter trading decisions with higher probabilities for success.
Here's an example of an Ichimoku chart. The following chart is a 30-minute chart of the S&P-500:
The above chart tells a big story...if you know how to interpret it. I learned most of it by the "seat of my pants" because there was very little written in English about it at that time. But I've been actively studying the Ichimoku charts since 2009 and this suite of indicators has helped me in trading stocks, options, and currencies.
I also utilize "western" indicators. These are the more common indicators that traders utilize in the U.S. For my research and trading, I combine both forms of analysis (Eastern and Western) and distill it into various heat maps of the market. These heat maps enable me to see, at a glance, the stocks that are the highest probability trending stocks at this time. Hours of research are culled into several "heat maps" each day. The best trending stocks (bulls and bears) can be viewed at a glance, saving the trader a ton of time and money. Let me put it this way... if you had a list of 10 stocks each day that were showing strong trends at this time, stocks that were beating out the rest of the market by a landslide, do you think you could make a profit in your trading?
One of the problems that many traders have is their lack of objectivity. Traders tend to attach themselves and their hopeful profit on things unrelated to probabilities and technical analysis. The result is mediocre results...at best. Just because we "like" a certain company has nothing to do with whether this is a good stock to buy right now. The heat maps are a great way to objectively bring the best of the best to our immediate attention.
Here's an example of the bearish stocks watch list for 8-23-2016:
Stocks on the above list that have 27 or more red check marks are currently in strong bearish trends. If you are looking to short a few stocks because the market direction is currently moving lower, then these stocks would present high probability shorts for you...presented to you at a glance.
I scan the market every day around 11:30 AM for the bull and bear stocks. I then record a short video and present the results to our members, highlighting certain stocks and offering some technical analysis. I also look at the market's overall direction so members can stay up-to-date with the current trend of the overall market.
So let me ask you a question: do you think your trading of the market could improve with this information? Armed with this objective knowledge, do you think you could make more confident and profitable trading decisions? Absolutely.
Let me tell you of a few ways that you could use these lists.
1. Use the stock lists for day trading purposes. For example, if the market on Tuesday is moving up and you have a list of bull trending stocks from Monday, then what are the probabilities that those bullish stocks will go higher on a bull trend day? That's a high probability trade.
2. Use the stock lists to identify strong and weak stocks within individual sectors. For example, you can trade short a weak financial stock while also trading long a strong financial stock. In this way, you've created a high probability sector straddle.
3. Use the bulls and bears watch lists and then add your own analysis. Presented with the top picks in the market, you can use your favorite indicators and increase your probabilities for success.
Those are just three ideas. There are many others, but I think you get the idea. We sort the market based on objective technical analysis and present those candidates to you. How you utilize that information is up to you. But I think you can see how this service can improve your probabilities for successful trading as well as save you hours of research.
