MACD is an acronym for Moving Average Convergence/Divergence. It is used in several different ways in various trading methods. I have know more than one trader that used it as a single trading indicator.
The MACD line (the solid magenta line shown on the chart displayed in Figure 1) is a plot of the difference […]
What it is:
Bollinger Bands consist of three plots (white dotted lines in Figure 1).
The middle line is a 21 period exponential moving average plot of price.
The topmost line is a +2 standard deviation plot of the 21 period moving average of price.
The bottommost line is […]
A technical indicator should be selected on the basis of what you want it to tell you – and how it relates that information.
Short term selling is all about oscillations – we presume that price will oscillate – the battle of the bears and the bulls assures that it will do so. The oscillations […]
TBL – Technical Indicators – I-A
This is the first in a series of posts in which I am going to describe the technical indicators we use in our TBL system – including how and why we have customized them for use in our short term trading method.

Securities markets all over the world are nervous […]
Ultra-short term trading – I like to call it “Scalping”- can be fun and exciting for a brief period of time. I say brief period of time because it requires intense concentration and attention to market movements at the fastest pace. It is riskier because the trades are made on movements that are of usually […]
We just posted on YouTube our latest video, Chapter 4, in our series of 4 chapters describing our eBook See the Music of the Market.
