Trend Analysis & Pattern Trading
Anyone who believes that markets don’t trend simply needs to look at the chart of the S&P 500 index from March of 2009 to 2014. Plenty of money was made by those whose saw, analyzed and invested in the trend. The challenge for many investors is the process of believing in the trend first and foremost, and second, holding through the volatility within the trend to experience the results of the trend. We will discuss three primary components of trend analysis in this meeting.
- First, how to recognize and believe in developing trends.
- Second, understanding that consolidation, i.e. patterns, are vital indicators to the trend. How do you spot them, trade them and use them to enhance your portfolio both short and long-term.
- Third, how to deal with what I like to refer to as the in-between.
That is basically between the point you buy the position and the point you sell the position. Too often as investors we self-sabotage our positions by making emotional versus logical decisions that keep us from letting our profits run. During this six-hour workshop (kidding), just making sure you are paying attention. My goal is to give you what you need to define the trend, invest in the trend, use consolidation/patterns to confirm the trend and hold on to your winners and cut your losers.
