    Stan Weinstein's Stage Analysis

    Dumb question, I'm looking through your charts, and I notice the you have a 4th indicator--the "Force Indicator." I haven't seen any discussion of it in Weinstein's book (possible that I missed it). I didn't see it in your buy checklist either (again, totally possible that I missed it). How...

    Stan Weinstein's Stage Analysis

    Hello, Again, All, Just beginning to read Weinstein, and was wondering, does he touch on issues like portfolio construction, asset allocation, and cash management? Thanks! Tom

    Stan Weinstein's Stage Analysis

    First annoying question (and I haven't even read the book yet) (I did warn y'all). I'm reading about Weinstein on "Investopedia" and they talk about short-selling in stage 4. Has anyone used Put Options during stage 4 (I'm in a retirement account and can't short sell, but I can go long both...

    Stan Weinstein's Stage Analysis

    Hello, All, New to both this forum and this board. Just been introduced to Weinstein, have ordered the book, and look forward to receiving it tomorrow. I'm sure I'll have lots of questions to ask (sorry, I"m not shy about that), but I'm pretty excited about learning Stage Analysis. It seems...

    My Fascination With Turtles

    I don't see why the cajones are needed when you're adding to a position that is running in your favor. Aren't you "playing with house money" at that point? It seems to me that the real nervous time would be early in the trade, when you have the most to lose. Am I wrong? Please, steer me...

    Another System That Fascinates Me: 50/100 SMA, MACD

    I ordered Weinstein's book yesterday, and expect it to show up tomorrow ;-). I'm really looking forward to it, because it seems to be what I'm looking for--something between the short-term trading that I find a lot of when I look for articles, and buy and hold no matter what (which is what most...

    Paper Trade, Price Action, IVV Long, Scaling in

    Hello, All, Again, thank you all for contributing to my journey as I study the art and science of trading! I instituted a trade (on paper, anyway) today. I'm going to paste the chart, and describe my rationale. I'll look forward to getting any comments that you may offer--that is why I'm...

    My First Paper Trade--Long Long-Term Turtle, No Pyramiding

    Thank you for that, Tom and NVP. I'm digesting it. I'll be posting about and IVV trade that I DID institute (paper trade) today, for completely different reasons. Please take a look and provide me with some feedback.

    My First Paper Trade--Long Long-Term Turtle, No Pyramiding

    Hello, NVP and Panic, First, Panic, Thank you for mentioning "Interactive Brokers." I've been rethinking a lot since I wrote this original post on Saturday, and am rethinking using a turtle-like strategy. That is why I'm here--to get feedback and rethink and fine tune. I'm going to go with...

    Creating My Trade Strategy: My Universe (6 ETF's To Start)

    I have the emerging markets in there, IEMB. Would IEI and IEF add anything above the IUSB, which is a diversified bond ETF?

    Creating My Trade Strategy: My Universe (6 ETF's To Start)

    Been thinking about this (my curse, I'm always thinking), and I think I'll drop either IVV or ONEQ (probably ONEQ). Can you think of any uncorrelated assets I need to add that will make the project more robust? Perhaps adding European or Asian markets, International Real Estate, or do you...

    Creating My Trade Strategy: My Universe (6 ETF's To Start)

    Hello, Malaguti, Thank you again for your response. As a young Padawan, I appreciate the Jedi's chiming in! (I was going to say, as "Grasshopper," but does anyone even remember Kung Fu?". I actually considered IVV and ONEQ--I added ONEQ last minute thinking that the increased volatility of...

    Another System That Fascinates Me: 50/100 SMA, MACD

    Malaguti, Thank you. I've been thinking over night, and I think I'm going to do a bit of an overhaul. In short, part of me thinks that I need to do more learning about price action versus looking at indicator based strategies. I've also been brooding about scaling in versus taking a whole...

    Another System That Fascinates Me: 50/100 SMA, MACD

    Hello, Malaguti, Fascinating! How did you back test this? I'm a certifiable noob, so I've been doing some rethinking on this one as it is--I'll post more about it when I have more time (heading to Church with the Fam in about 3 min). Can you share more about how you did the backtest, what...

    My First Paper Trade--Long Long-Term Turtle, No Pyramiding

    Hello, All, I'm excited! As I was looking at my ETF trading universe I noted that several of them were close to having buy singals, and one actually had a signal. I'll post the chart, and then talk about the trade. Here is Friday's daily chart for IVV: First, the entries and exits...

    My Fascination With Turtles

    Thank you, Tomorton. I know that I missed a lot of the adding from the paper, because frankly, I'm not sure how to do the math. It leans a lot on the ATR, and the Fidelity chart doesn't even offer an ATR indicator. That is my homework for this week, studying and figuring out how they did the...

    My Fascination With Turtles

    Hey, Tomorton, Do you have any sources where I can get more info about those options? e.g., options 2 and 3 seem to encourage to add to the position at set levels (either of unrealized profit, or after a specified move). How would a non-math person like myself set those levels? The first...
