Implied Volatility and RSI Oscillator for Higher Probability and Bigger Gains!

Today, I’m going to teach you how to combine high implied volatility levels with one of my favorite technical indicators, the RSI oscillator. 

You’ll get the most premium out of the option that you sell and at the same time, increase your odds of keeping that premium.

Most of you know by now, one of the best times to sell options premium is when the implied volatility for a particular stock or ETF is at a 52 week high.

How to Be In Sync with the Overall Trend

After all these years of research and spending money, is trading consistency still eluding you? Have you given up your search for the perfect trading method? The statistics show that only 5% of traders will be consistently profitable while the majority of all traders will eventually lose money. How is it possible that such a small percentage of traders is able to consistently capture profits? Simple, they’re in sync with the overall trend.

Knoxville Divergence: My Favorite Indicator

I'm going to tell you a story about Knoxville Divergence, my favorite indicator. So, about four years ago, I was doing a cross-country trip and arrived in Knoxville, Tennessee. I was enjoying some coffee in the Old City Java shop and working on building an indicator.

I've always been a fan of divergence, which is a disagreement between price and an indicator, but I needed some confirmation. As I was enjoying my cup of Joe, I was struck by the realization that I could build an indicator that I loved.

Technical Analysis Indicators Are Never Wrong

This brief tutorial demonstrates why charting indicators are always right, which has the tremendous benefit of allowing you to use them to create an objective, rule-based trading method. Why is this?

5 Winning High Probability Chart Patterns

After decades of trading most all of the major markets, I've learned that the key to trading success is market direction. I've designed and use a Systematic Directional Trading Process and the first step in this process is to identify the best chart patterns that offer the highest probability of producing winning trades.

Now, as a trader it can seem overwhelming when you feel like you have to be an expert at charting, along with finding the best security or ETFS to trade, learning your broker's trading platform, accounting for your trades and the list just goes on and on.

For this reason, I like to simplify things by focusing on what I've identified to be the Highest Probability Winning Chart Patterns.

Use These Three Indicators to Trade Credit Spreads

There is something valuable in watching a chart develop over time.

It’s interesting to note how much value early stock traders reported receiving from manually plotting a chart with pencil and paper back before computers became commonplace.

These traders swore that because of the painstaking method of tracking a stock by hand they got to know its movement intimately. It’s like getting to know the personality of the stock—the moods and patterns of what the stock is doing—-and likely to do next.

Trading the Open of the U.S. Equities Market

A random walk. That is what most people think the stock market is. Just a series of random events with no predictable pattern or link. Just total randomness.

Well, the fact is that most people are right. Most of the time during the trading day the market is random and has no predictable pattern.

This is why so many lose. I have traded the market for years, but realized long ago that MOST of the time the market is random, and people try to make too much out of insignificant patterns that give little odds of success. However, success comes from those few times where there is NOT randomness, when there IS a predictable pattern. When you find these times, it is when you have an edge.
