A couple of days ago, I posted a commentary that, among other things, inferred that the data coming out of our nation’s capital is massaged to the point of being virtually worthless.
Just today, at the ZeroHedge website, I read the following very interesting observations of someone who should know about government statistics. I quote:

The SRVs on the chart shown in Figure 1 were place on the chart on Sunday afternoon, July 14, 2013. The chart includes trading thru about 1300 – as I wrap up my trading day.

The MACD Histogram
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence is a big part of our trading method. The MACD we use is a 7 bar moving average of the difference between a 28 bar moving average and a 14 bar moving average. Its signal line is zero, which is the net value at which the two moving […]
This continues our discussion of how we use trend in our trading methodology.
In the previous post I discussed how we evaluate trend: first on our primary intra-day trading chart and then on our secondary intra-day trading chart.
This post will discuss how we proceed after deciding what type of trade we are watching for […]

I am frequently asked how much money is required to trade futures and/or FOREX. It is not a simple answer for several reasons – such as the fact that at most brokers you have to have a separate account for futures and FOREX. And many brokers have a minimum for setting up an account.
A friend of mine recently asked me about the gold market – knowing that over the years I have traded and followed the gold and silver market. I think he was a little surprised about my answer – so I thought that I would post it for the entire world to see.
My first response […]
Do the SRVs I use in my trading really help me “See the Music of the Market”?
