Other than:

Price
Volume,
Time and Sales
Level II

Are there any other leading indicators that anyone can think of ?


Thanks

cci is said to lead, and true strength gives an insight as do oversold/bought. Macd is said to be both a leading and a lagging indicator.
But the only foolproof and easily the best way to back market direction with a near 100% success rate is to find out if I have gone long or short and then do the opposite.

None lead all of the time. Some lead some of the time. ( rarely)
I have seen RSI and CCI indicate a breakout before the price breaks. I consider this an exception.

Sometimes market breadth indicators will lead by showing divergence from price. Not to be taken singly, but great when they all sing off the same hymn sheet. E.g. AD indicator, HiLo indicator. Also Volume Price trend. But as Chartman says, none lead consistently, or it would be easy.

The axe.He dosn't look at any oscillator.Watching his antics is the most leading signal there is.

Sometimes you think i don't know whats going on but i know a man who does and his name is the axe.Shadow him and understand his moves (thats a key part) and you don't need any oscillator.

He can fool most people who look at a chart,ie false break out,break down etc,etc.A gap that dosnt seem to be filling,then wow! he turns around and goes for it.Are his moves straight forward?No.He's hardly going to put his hands up and tell every one his true intentions.But get to know the level 2 screen well and get to know the axe in your stock and you've got a leading indicator.

Funny you should mention it, but the answer you seek to the question you ask is inside
the question itself. I suggest you read your own question carefully.
The tragedy is that the great majority of people are not able to do it.

Paul - I try not to second guess the market, unless both price, volume and volatility are all in tune. I let my edge take its course (to the bank!). I know that there is no such thing as a crystal ball, and you never know when out of the blue the market is going to be put up or put down in one fell swoop (was anyone in NPSP when it moved to 23.80 earlier - jumped 50c in 2 seconds, T+S showed this to be blatant manipulation so I got short PDQ). Maybe Naz and his L2 stuff can????

Sorry if thats as much use as a chocolate teapot.

What about other stocks in the same sector/industry?

Thanks for the replies but if you look at my last post on this thread it was made over a year ago and I have moved on considerably since then. The thread has resurfaced because Socrates has shown an interest.

Hello, I show an interest in it because you are asking people to do what they are either unwilling or unable to do. It's amazing. I'm gobsmacked. This is why there are 15 thousand
people seeking answers that they already have but overlook.

As it turns out I am working my way through the No Indicators thread at around 5 pages a day and I am currently up to page 30 but have not reached your posts yet. I will just have to wait to understand all the "esoteric riddles" that appear to be being posted.
