Find out why trading or investing is one of the easiest solutions for a home based business. Check our newly published Kindle Book: Your Trading Career as a Private Investor by Thomas Barmann.

This book (available at Amazon for stunning $2.99) is for you, if you aim to produce constant income and long-term wealth from trading or investing. The difference between trading and investing lies in the perspective of time: Investors usually take a longer-term perspective to buy and hold their investments, while traders focus on shorter-term results. If you learn how to participate in the up- and down moves of the financial markets, you will start to invest more frequently and turn yourself into a trader.

Trading is a professional business and it requires preparation: Those, who take the other side of your orders are prepared to make money. Are you?

Unfortunately, most of what we learned in life is rather a hindrance to progress in trading: Good work ethic for example – We start to work when the office day starts and work to the end – and feel good about what we have done. However, we better not start to trade when the market opens and trade to the end: We only trade when we have a signal and the odds are in our favor. Our account statement tells us if we can feel good about what we accomplished. Let this book guide you to a new perspective of trading or investing.

Prepare yourself for a part-time or full-time trading career; follow our step-by-step guide and insights, how to start and operate your trading business.

Trading or Investing in Sector Rotations

The serious private investor considers or follows Stock Market Sector Rotations, where institutional money flows in or out of one sector and either into another asset class: Commodities, Treasuries, Currencies or into a different industrial sector.

Graph-1: Sector Rotation in the Real Estate Sector (Home Builders)

Sector Rotation Home Builders

The NeverLossTrading Top-Line Chart, from the left to the right, shows an outflow of money, started with two strong sell signals on July 7, 2014. This price move brought the value of home builder stocks down by about 12% (framed in red). With a strong buy signal on August 8, 2014 an inflow of money started the demand for home builder stocks increased the share value by 7%.

Reporting such sector rotations is part of the NeverLossTrading Alerts:

This is where day traders, swing traders and long-term investors get informed about major changes in supply and demand of institutional investors.

Observed assets are: Stocks, stocks with favorable option setups, Futures, FOREX.

How to segment the stock market and find sector rotations?

Stock market indexes are a great source for leading stocks in industrial sectors:

The DOW considers 30 different industrial sectors. Each sector is represented by one leading company. For trading or investing into sector rotations the S&P 500 is the much better choice, best segmented into the following:

Graph-2: Industrial Sectors of the S&P 500: Share by Market Capitalization per Sector

Industrial Sectro with NLT Top-Line Signals
Graph-2: Information Technology is the strongest S&P 500 sector, followed by Financials and Healthcare. If we put the two consumer sectors: Consumer Staples and Consumer Discretionary together, the consumer sector appears to be dominant. The last 10% of the sector representation is cut into smaller segments, allowing the investor to leverage on the impact of a bigger money inflow or outflow as shown in Graph-1.

If you knew about those sector rotations, how would you take advantage of your knowledge?

As shown in Graph-1, sector rotations allow you to trade on money outflow (downside) and money inflow (upside). Hence, you need to know how to participate in both market directions: In case you are trading with an IRA account or an account with less than $25,000 holdings (SEC regulation), you cannot short stocks; however, you can use Put-Option strategies. Those strategies and much more are taught in the NeverLossTrading Mentorships, tailor made to your individual trading and investing needs.

Let us take a look, how the NeverLossTrading Alerts tell you about sector rotations. For our examples, we are taking the Information Technology Sector with NLT Top-Line and NLT HF-Signals.

Graph-3: Information Technology with NLT Top-Line Signals July 15 – August 11, 2014

Information Technology Sector

Graph Summary: At the blue buy- and the red sell-signal, the target price is marked by a dot:

  • On the buy signal, it took us seven bars to come to target.
  • The sell signal took 5 days to come to target.

The average expected time per trade after a NLT signal was confirmed is one to five bars, maximum 10 bars, independent from the time frame you took your signal from.

NLT Top-Line is for the trader, who wants to trade at strong supply/demand changes.

If you prefer to trade more frequently, NLT HF Stock Trading and NLT HF Day Trading systems are for you, producing in average 3-5 times more signals per time unit observed than NLT Top-Line.

Professional NLT traders like to combine the two systems for the highest participation rate. In any case, we support you by publishing both signals on our NLT Alerts and learn how to participate in sector rotations by stock and option strategies, to leverage and protect trade positions.

In the following example, you find NLT HF-Signals in three different colors:

  • Dark-Green: Institutional triggered price-momentum change and statistical volatility increase.
  • Light-Green: Volume differential change with price direction approximation.
  • Pink-Signal: Potential top and bottom finder.

How to Trade with the Odds in Your Favor

Many private traders like the exciting environment of trading the financial markets. Trading can be a wonderful hobby. For hobbies, we like to spend money and this is usually what happens; however, if you want to take trading and investing serious, you need to start being a probability thinker: Understanding how probable it is for you in a string of investments to make money following clearly defined trading or investing guidelines.

What are your odds of making money?

Before we help you to answer this question, let us reiterate some prerequisites of trading success:

  • Have a system.
  • Be disciplines and follow the system.
  • Trade only, when the odds are in your favor

Example: NeverLossTrading Top Line Chart for FAS

FAS NLT Top-Line Chart

At this NeverLossTrading example, you only trade when the price development of the candle following the trade initiation candle (situations marked with numbers) surpasses the spelled out price threshold: Buy>$101.10 for example. Summary: The price of the next candle has to move higher to validate the entry proposal. The trade target is pre-calculated and either marked with a dot on the chart or by a horizontal NLT Price Gravitation Line. The red line on the chart: NLT Double Decker Line allows for trailing your stop.

To calculate or evaluate the odds of the trade situation, we run a quick appraisal for the three trade situations, which all have a high probability trade setup at the chart constellation:

Situation-1: Risky, by having a substantially higher risk than reward: Stop at the high of the candle.

Situaiton-2: Favorable setup. Stop at the low of the candle, with a higher reward than risk.

Situaiton-3: Favorable setup. Stop at the low of the candle, with a higher reward than risk.

However, if your trading system does not portrait entries, exits, and stops, what do you do?

A simple way of calculating the odds of a trade setup is:

Probability of the Trade Setup (past performance) x Reward / (Risk x Probability of Failing)

At this point, note the Golden Rule of Trading Success:

The factor of this calculation shall be above 1.5-points.

Example-1: Probability for success of the trade setup (from history): 65%, with a risk of $1 and a reward of $1. The calculated factor comes to 1.94; thus, it is above 1.5 and tells you that you found a trade setup where the odds in your favor according to our Golden Rule.

Example-2: Probability for the trade setup: 58%, with a risk of $1 and a reward of $1. The calculated factor comes to 1.38 and is below 1.5 telling you that the odds of the trade setup evaluated are NOT in your favor.

When it is that easy, why do most private investors fail to achieve their financial goals?

Our answer: Most private investors or traders use trading systems, which are either random or produce a probability for success between 53% – 57% where the factor < 1.5. Examples are:

  • Moving average based indicators: MACD, Bollinger Bands, RSI, CCI…
  • Candle setups: Doji, Harami, Hangman…
  • Long-term patterns: Head and Shoulder, Cup and Handle…

We tested and programmed all of those setups and many others. For traders who sign up for our program, we always offer to parallel-program the trade situation, you based your decision on and then we compare.

In addition, most standard indicators are lagging and propose entries when the major price move is close to over; providing you a trade-setup where the risk is mostly higher than the reward; bringing you into a circle-of-doom-pattern: Small gain, small gain, big loss.

This is where NeverLossTrading systems make a difference.

  1.  You trade at major swing points of institutional supply and demand shifts.

  1. By the support of calculation tables, you get your trade situation appraised, calculating the likelihood for success, potential risk and reward, with a proposal for the position sizing.

Trading is a Professional Business and Professionals Make Money with What They Do

How to make money in the financial markets?

Historically, the stock market was in focus of the private trader. Lately the FOREX market is gaining more and more interest and attracts first time traders by its nature of pure leverage: $2,000 controlling $100,000.

Another market with long-term focus: Metals. For a good while, I met people who shared their opinion about Gold and Silver: “It will always go up”; however, since Gold dropped from $1,700 per oz. to $1,300, those voices got quiet. An even more drastic development in Silver: Dropping form $40 per oz. to $20. You sure remember the hype in Silver: All cellphones and the new tablets; they all need Silver coated connectors. In the new industrial future, a desperate need for this metal was a given. Silver was stated as the most undervalued material of the century and had to sky rocket to more highs after it reached $40 per oz.

As we know now, many if not all of those predictions did not hold true. What can you do?

Our answer: Understand supply and demand patterns and how financial markets work, where assigned market makers provide liquidity and thus an offering at multiple price levels on the bid and ask side of an asset. Some still believe that the market makers live from the penny bid/ask-spread, but when you see the amount of people that receive a paycheck from those companies and the building they reside in, you recognize, there must be something else that fuels their cash account.

How do all those fund managers make money? By the 1% maintenance fee they charge? Surely not, but how does that work, because they hold assets in the value of gazillion dollars from 401(k) and mutual fund investors.

Do yourself a favor and check the income statements of the big prop traders of our today’s world: Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Deutsche Bank, UBS, Barclay’s and many more… Even so they perfectly hide their source of income through international corporate balance sheet consolidations, the picture gets clear: A lion share of their income results from trading and not from the basic banking business.

If you bring it all together:

  • There are many institutional participants who produce and income above or beyond what you are making as a private investor.
  • Following publically shared trade opinion’s does not lead to picking the market direction.
  • Fund holders care more about their than your account development.

Conclusion: If you had a way to follow institutional money moves to the up- and downside, you would be better on than you are now.

What to do to get there?

Suggestion: Finding a system, which helps you to identify where institutional money is moving.

Trading Financial Market Patterns

Price changes in all financial markets: Stock market, Commodities, Currencies, and Treasuries are a pure expression of supply and demand changes.

NLT Top-Line Chart: Sell Signal with a NLT Light Tower Pattern and NLT Lime Line Price Move

Crude Oil Lime Line and Light Tower Pattern 1-2

The chart above contains a clearly defined trade entry, which was confirmed by the next candle surpassing the formulated price threshold: Sell <$99.90. By our algorithm a NLT Light Tower initiated trend (candle with a cyan dot, signifying key changes in institutional supply and demand patterns) has a high probability (74%) to end in a NLT Light Tower, when using a 1-hour time frame. In addition, we find high predictability for price moves from one to the next NLT Lime Line (Quant based price levels).

As an investor (longer-term perspective) or trader (short-term perspective), your key challenge is to find swing points where a shift between supply and demand takes place.

In my early trading years, I got introduced to Moving Averages; today still key TV channels characterize the sentiment of an asset by their price position in relation to the 200-day and 50-day moving average. This for sure gives a chart reading; however, years back when writing an algorithm and taking charge at moving average based price turning points, such system turned out to be a pure gamble with a low probability for success. Imagine, if knowing the price position of an asset in relation to two moving averages would be enough to make a living from trading: Then nobody would ever go to work.

How else to capture shifts in supply and demand patterns?

Historically, technical analysis is used to predict a future happening on the price chart. The first technical analysis is reaching back to the 1600’s, when “Japanese Candle Sticks” started their development in tracking historic price moves to predict the price moves to come. Since then, there is an understanding that in traders are trying to gauge the depth to produce a high or low breakout of the price direction. When this is happening, usually the crowd follows the leaders and this is what we portrait on the chart in our 21st century algorithmic trading systems. They are related to the base understanding of the 1600’ but fit today’s market requirements.

This is how NeverLossTrading records and portraits changes in price move patterns.

Another Example for Crude Oil Futures on the NLT 1-Hour Top-Line Chart

Crude Oil Lime Line and Light Tower Pattern2-2

Again, you find the same formation: What begins in an NLT Light Tower signal ends in a NLT Light Tower Signal: Trend initiation and trend exhaustion patterns, triggered by a change in institutional supply and demand: Price moves from NLT Lime Line to Lime Line.
