Which Market Internal Did You Guys Find Most Usefull?

Recommended Posts

•The TRIN

•The TRIN/Q

•The TICK

•The TIKI

•The VIX

 

there are many of them...which did u find to be most usefull? any why?

 

Trin & Tiki don't work as well as they used to due to the continued use of programmed and automated executions. On the other hand I use the NYSE Tick as the backbone of my system (I read the tape using it). For those unfamiliar with the term "reading the tape" it involves monitoring the time & sales strip, the tick and $VOLD/$ADD....We read the tape as price tests a key reference area...when this occurs you can see whether the bid will be held or the offer lifted. Makes it relatively easy to enter a trade favorably.

 

Those who want to look slightly outside the box should look toward the put/call ratios (to the exchange websites for this information)

Thx for this info.

 

1) What excatly did trading robots do to the trin and tiki to make them stop work?

 

2) how much of an edge do you gain with VOLD? or put/call ratio?

In answer to number 1

I don't really have time to give a detailed answer. One assumes you will put some effort into this subject on your own..however as an example, it used to be that you could spot automated execution because all (or most) of the stocks in the Dow 30 would be bought or sold at the same time..using the TIKI you would see a reading of +/-26 to 30 and that would be a reliable indication of programmed execution...now (unfortunately) more contemporary programs split that exeecution into smaller baskets and so it is less detectable....a similar situation has occurred with the Trin

 

and for #2

the edge or advantage that you gain depends on your system, I have no idea what system you are using, so you will have to do your own testing to obtain that answer.

 

Hope this helps

Steve

    • There is no point asking this question as we know women have now entered most of the fields of business. You might remember this ball busting study which found that women make better investors than men, because they are more risk-averse. 
    • The stock market going up is not a reflection of a healthy economy as created by rationally minded entrepreneurs and investors; it’s going up because the people who have the ability to make it go up also happen to be the ones who’ll benefit from it the most.
    • Landora This thread illustrates a couple of things that humblepieasant hopefully/probably learned 1 day/short term trading is for the few, not the many.  Finding systems that optimize win rate with risks is formidable.  Finding such systems that are also self compatible is exceedingly rare. 2 posting is expensive.  ie It really doesn’t pay short term or long term to give if you don’t got... 3 the need for the kind of “accountability”hp mentioned above is - in a word - transitional.  ie Accountability needs to be turned and referenced inward instead of spread outward... 4 hp would have been much better off trading “a small "live" account through the end of January, then a small "practice account" account beginning February, ... then back live. ... 1 Don’t just look for an edge.  Look for an edge that is also true to your nature.  If an edge is not true to your nature, you will still never be able to make it work consistently. 2 Post what you are learning and see. 3 Post what you are trading and see. 4 See.  ... maybe decades later... All the best zdo
