Many amateur traders dream of successful trades mistakenly believing that you can achieve this without having any help but only being guided by your own intuition. In fact, in order to receive as much profit as possible, a trader will need to master a variety of different techniques and principles for applying special strategies and tactics in certain situations. You also need to understand how all financial instruments work so that you can start using them to achieve your goals. In order to help beginners there are many tools that help you navigate the market faster. For example, there are signals that can be used to increase the efficiency of ongoing operations. Not all signals, however, are going to benefit you so you have to do a comprehensive research. One place to start is Market Trend Signals if you do not want to be lost in an ever changing economic environment.

Once you log into the Market Trend Signals website, you will see several different tabs available to you. The most common and utilized tab is the analysis tool. The market trend subtab is going to give you options to open direction alerts, buy-sell ratios and a bond yield curve. Direction alert is a long market indicator signal that is sent out via email; you will also get long-term and short-term indication market activity on various date ranges that you can choose and you can see what the history looked like through each date. The long-term market signal is going to give the bearish and bullish ranks as well as trend momentum line to show you where we at within that market trend. It all will help to understand how to utilize the toll slightly more efficiently. Buy-sell ratios term is self-explanatory and it shows the ratios of the stocks in the database. The next chart down on the page is going to give you the SPY which is an exchange rate fund representation of the S&P 500 so that you can see how the market is moving and being affected. A bond yield curve shows a 20-year chart of the S&P 500 and then the short- and long-term bond yields over time. This is a dynamic chart, meaning that if you click on any point, you will see that the other graphs are moving in accordance with any certain time period.

In the "Get Started" tab you are going to get access to each of your bonus items: the "Trend Following Stocks" book, the DVD and the other publications that you can download as PDF files. Other videos available to view are also listed here; as you click on them, you will be able to open them in another box or download. You can also access your home study videos if you have those additional videos; if not, you will be taken to a location to access those as well.

Another useful tool to take a look at is Trend Trading Signals, which is an educational and informational website. They provide thorough free and premium content concentrated entirely on the trading of highly liquid stocks and apply systematic trading strategies using medium to long-term position trading systems. Trend Trading Signals have nothing short-term day trading or swing trading at all. The website has been publishing trades, entries and exits as well as open positions as they appear on their public Twitter feed for several years and has expanded to a fairly large account in terms of followers. The reason for this was the efficiency of given information. Systematic trading (also referred to as mechanical trading or rules-based trading) is the opposite of discretionary trading and pursues predetermined entry, exit and position sizing guidelines to remove cautiousness, bias, prediction and circumstantial overrides.

Their systems have a quantitative structure and use technical analysis, price and MA in order to make their assumptions. They withdrew from using fundamental analysis and do not form conclusions on any market situation or make any type of predictions or market calls. They rely on the concept that price contains all accessible data and that fundamental data or predictive techniques let a trader acquire directional biases and notice what they wish to notice, which often prevents them from following price considerately. Modern technologies allow you to receive the necessary information almost instantly. Trading signals can come in various ways: email, SMS, in the form of a news selection on the website or by means of special software.

There are two basic approaches to building trading strategies. The first one presumes that the price fluctuates around some balanced level with a smack range and if the price moves away from this level, it is likely to return. Therefore, we are supposed to assume that there is a particular channel within which the market price fluctuates. Strategies built on this approach suggest buying cheap on the lower border of this channel and selling more expensive at the top. However, it is clear that a significant trend movement will destroy this channel and positions opened at the lower line of the channel will have to be closed at a loss when there is a strong downward trend. For that reason, mechanisms of determining the market conditions (if there is a trend) play the main role in such systems. In case the market has a trend, the system has to wait until the trend ends and a horizontal channel begins to form. These systems are called counter-trend systems, meaning traders enter a position against the movement. They tend to buy cheap to sell expensive. Since only such an approach seems to be the right one for beginner traders, one can fall into this trap and start trading without having a clear strategy for getting out of a trend which started unexpectedly. As a result, all the profits accumulated by trading in the channel can be erased by one powerful movement against an open position.

There is another approach that involves buying expensive and selling cheap. Despite the apparent irrationality of such actions, this approach provides some of the most stable results. The main goal of this strategy is to catch the beginning of the trend and keep the position along with it until it ends. Such strategies are called trend or trend-tracking strategies. Traders enter a position following the price movements. They buy expensive at a growing price in order to sell them even more expensively and sell cheap at a falling price so that they can buy later at a lower price. Typically, such systems do not use take-profit because it is difficult to predict when the movement will be over in advance. We risk losing most of the profits if we close the position too quickly. A trend is usually tracked by a trailing stop and positions are closed when the price comes down to the stop. The main rule is letting the profit grow and cutting losses.

Psychologically, trend systems are quite difficult. Besides the fact that they make a trader go against common sense by buying expensive and selling cheap, they usually give a large number of false inputs that have to be closed with losses. Such systems cause a large number of small losses and a small number of major profits from trend trading. Since it is statistically more likely that the next transaction will be unprofitable, there will be a great temptation to skip the next trade if the market conditions do not seem very suitable, for example, there is a drawn out sideways trend. Nevertheless, the main profit that can be gained from price movements comes from trends of different sizes. Even the simplest and most unpretentious strategies such as channel breakthrough account for acceptable results in most markets.

Generally speaking, the most successful and sustainably profitable systems are quite difficult to trade with. It certainly makes sense in some way as in the case of widespread distribution, any successful strategies and signals start to change the market and the market adapts in such a way that they stop working. Therefore, only those strategies and signals which are unlikely to be used by too many traders due to, for example, psychological stress, are able to work for a long time. After all, many traders do not even realize that they are not following the profitable way but easy to use strategies.
