Hello everyone, By the way of introduction, I am Jansen or you can call me Tideinvestor. I started my blog as a medium to record my investment / trading journey in the stock market and also to share with our fellow investors about my personal indicators about the stock market conditions. In my blog, I termed my personal stock market indicators as “Tide Indicators“. Currently, I used 6 main indicators that, based on my experiences, are accurate gauge of the general stock market condition (whether they are bullish or bearish). These 6 indicators (collectively know as “Tide indicators”) are established based on the fund flow analysis of the following commodities and currencies: Tide indicator #1: Crude Oil #1 Tide indicator #2: Crude Oil #2 Tide indicator #3: Gold Tide indicator #4: Japanese Yen (JPY) Tide indicator #5: Australian dollar (AUD) Tide indicator #6: Swiss Franc (CHF) You may find the records of my Tide indicators since the start of year 2019 via the Tide Indicators page. Below are an example of how my Tide indicators are recorded in my blog: So the idea is that, by analyzing the fund flow of the above 6 commodities and currencies, it can give me an overall picture to stay long (bullish) or short (bearish) in the stock market for the coming short term. Personally, I believe that investing or trading in the stock market is all about probabilities. By investing along with the general stock market condition, the probabilities of your technical analysis or fundamental analysis being accurate will increase significantly. For example: When you are bullish about a certain stock based on either technical analysis or fundamental analysis, the probabilities that your analysis being accurate will increase significantly in a bullish stock market condition. By using the above theory of probabilities, my investing / trading strategies are very simple. It is to be focused on being bullish in a bullish stock market condition and being bearish in a bearish stock market condition. In my Tideinvestor blog, I will be sharing with our fellow investors about my Tide indicators and whether the Tide indicators are pointing to a bullish or bearish stock market condition in the coming short term. If you believe in timing the market, Tide indicators will be what you are looking for. It will be a tool which will provide you with a forward looking indicator of the stock market condition. When used to complement your technical or fundamental analysis, Tide indicators will be able to give you an edge over the stock market. Remember, It is all about maximizing your probabilities in the stock market. Curious to know more about Tide Indicators and how to interpret them? Please visit my Tide Indicators introduction post. I followed a very simple rule to spot a trend reversal. It is that “majority of my Tide indicators must “reverse” for continuous 5 weeks“. One example will be about the market peak during early year 2020. My Tide Indicators had already forewarned about this market peak on 21 December 2019, where majority of my Tide indicators (more than 3) had reverse from "Long" to "Short" for continuous 5 weeks, indicating a market peak happening in the coming short term. See below picture for illustration: By following my Tide Indicators and the price actions of the major charts, I had started shorting the stock market from 23 January 2020. And all the major indices did reached its peak in the coming short term during early January 2020 and the US indices during mid February 2020: Nasdaq: peaked at 19 February 2020 STI: peaked at 17 January 2020 SSEC: peaked at 14 January 2020 Hang Seng: peaked at 20 January 2020 Nikkei: peaked at 17 January 2020 Crude Oil: peaked at 6 January 2020 USD/JPY: peaked at 20 January 2020 SGD/JPY: peaked at 20 January 2020 Most importantly, please note that my Tide indicators are a forward looking indicator. What I mean by this is that if Tide indicators turned from “Long” to “Short” for continuous 5 weeks on 21 December 2019, it does not means that a bearish trend will start on 21 December 2019. Instead, it is indicating that a market peak will be approaching in the coming short term (normally expected within 6 weeks). Looking forward to sharing about my Tide indicators and analysis with you all. Hope that it will be useful for your trading reference. Cheers.
