A feature of our charts that some may not be aware of is using moving averages alone on a chart, to take a longer-term view and get rid of some of the noise.
Once you pull up a chart, select a moving average from the drop-down box. Then click the indicator name in the legend (which makes everything disappear), then click the name of the moving average in the legend. That will plot only the moving average on the chart, which helps clean it up.
The post titled Feature: Plotting A Moving Average was originally published as on SentimenTrader.com on 2015-12-28.
At SentimenTrader.com, our service is not focused on market timing per se, but rather risk management.
That may be a distinction without a difference, but it's how we approach the markets. We study signs that suggest it is time to raise or lower market exposure as a function of risk relative to probable reward. It is all about risk-adjusted expectations given existing evidence.
