How can I use the PRICE MAP NASDAQ (ND) and S&P500 (SP) Index analysis to trade individual stocks?
The PRICE MAP shows shifts in market momentum. Stocks traders should note how their stocks are reacting when the ND or SP are rising or falling. When the index that best mirrors a stock is found, reactions off the specific PRICE MAP levels should be used as signals for that stock. If a stock that typically follows the ND is reluctant to break when the ND is selling off, it is a sign of strength that will provide a good buying opportunity when the ND approaches support or produces a buy signal.
How much should I risk on a PRICE MAP level?
The PRICE MAP levels are precise and any violation or inability to attain a PRICE MAP level should be noted for strength or weakness. Risk should always be based on potential reward. JS Services recommends a 1 to 3 risk reward relationship when assessing the risk of a trade.
What is the R number on the Price Map?
The R represents the REVERSAL number on the Price Map. It is the point in which the current trend bias will reverse. Traders should keep a SELL strength outlook below the R and a BUY break posture above the R.
What are the +c and -c ?
The +c and -c are CONTINUATION MOMENTUM NUMBERS. They represent the price point in which the market must close above (+c) or below (-c) to signal follow through in the coming session. A long position that has the market closing below the +c is vulnerable to a pull-back in the upcoming session. A close above the +c however signals a high probability of follow through in the coming session.
How often is the MARKETCOLOR research updated?
The research is updated daily to the JS Services web site by 12:00 a.m. cst.
What key color codes do you look for?
GREEN or ORANGE colors. These are action colors which indicate that a signal is happening now. Action colors supported by a PURPLE ADX are best as this shows that the signal has follow through potential.
Im not very technical. How do I get the most out of the MARKETCOLOR tool without understanding all the different indicators?
Exactly. The beauty of MARKETCOLOR is its ability to break down all the different technical indicators for you. Most traders are not up to speed on every indicator. MARKETCOLOR analyzes multiple indicators for you and assigns a rank from the color profile results. This rank or value is then compared to other like markets to aid the selection process of strong, neutral or weak markets. By using the RANKING Table you can get the benefit of seeing the underlying technical position of a market and its relative strength to other like markets without any prior knowledge of technical indicators.
How do I use MARKETCOLOR in "matched pairs" trading strategies?
Go to the RANKING Table of the sector or index that you are interested in finding a matched pairs opportunity. Look for stocks with a +2 to +4 rank to buy and a 2 to -4 rank to sell. When potential matched pairs are selected it is recommended to look at the full color profile for each selecting the strongest profile to buy and the weakest to sell.
