“Trend (can be) your Friend or your Enemy… you make the choice.

Trend trading requires data, a little interpretation, some intuition, and most of all discipline and patience. Remember the financial markets are a giant ocean of money, and there will always be a new set of waves to ride.

MarketXLS has customized a proprietary program to provide you with Trend Values and Signals to quickly and easily assist in your trading. 

The Trend Value (Number) uses historical, and hypothetical (for future days) prices and volume to quantify which direction the price of a stock is or may be moving.  

The Trend Signal (Uptrend or Downtrend) derived from the Trend Number is a signal based on the pattern of Trend Values, Prices, and Volume to help guide your trading choices.

The “interpretation” part of the equation requires easy to evaluate Trend Numbers/Signals.

The objective: easily make better-informed trading decisions resulting in a higher probability of profits. 

The Number or “Signal” on any given day, is viewed in the context of the most recent Trend Numbers and Signals presented.

You can easily view the context of the TREND Number (signal) relative to Historic values and Future Days projections and then decide if or how you will trade.

Additionally,  please be patient and disciplined and refer to the last day of the trading week’s Trend Number. Intraweek, the daily volatility in the markets can present a false reading.  

Examples of interpreting the Trend number. Simple- Just 2 things to consider…

  • As negative Trend Values (Numbers)  approach (or breach) a positive Trend Number, that is a BULLISH TONE (open long position or cover shorts)
  • As positive Trend Values (Numbers)  approach (or breach) a negative Trend Number that is a BEARISH TONE (open short position or sell longs)

If positive Trend Values (Numbers) are fading, then evaluate it relative to the recent past set of week-ending Trend Signals/Numbers to determine the direction of the TREND.

If negative Trend Values (Numbers) are improving, meaning moving closer to zero or a positive number), then evaluate it relative to the recent past set of week-ending Trend Signals/Numbers to determine the direction of the TREND.

Using MAX to identify a Bearish Signal…

MAX is defined by the LARGEST trend number of the past 13 weeks.
Generally, a Current Trend number that has decreased to less than 25% of the MAX is a potential reversal to the DOWNSIDE.

Using MIN to identify a Bullish Signal…

MIN is defined by the Smallest or worst trend number of the last 13 weeks. Generally, a Current Trend number that has decreased to less than 25% of the MIN is a potential reversal to the UPSIDE.

“Forward Day”

(see the Blue and Yellow Histogram/Line chart Blue is for the Stock Price and yellow is for the Trend Number line overlay)

These calculations will help support your trading thesis.  This yellow Trend Line that extends beyond the Blue price histogram is a hypothetical “What-if” that assumes NO net change in price or volume for the next 20 days has occurred.  An increase, decrease, or flat “Future Day” Trend Numbers indicates Trend Momentum when the net price and volume are flat.

If the Trend Number increases significantly, even if there is no predicted future increase in the price of the stock, that is bullish, conversely, a significant decrease in the ”Future Day” trend number is bearish.

If you find that the Trend Numbers /Signals have changed several times over the past couple of weeks – this stock is probably not in a trend and should not currently be a candidate in your trend trades. A mixed-signal is just that. Mixed. (Neutral)

We hope this quick simple “how-to” has helped you.

How to Read the Numbers

Just hover over the plus signs to understand what each of the columns represent.

Trend Min

This number represents the lowest/smallest/worst Trend # recorded in the last 65 days.

Compare this to the Last trading day of the week's Trend Number to determine if the Trend number is trending UP towards or above ZERO
and thus representing an Uptrend signal... or conversely, the trend number is failing to advance or stabilize or in fact, could be getting worse.

Trend

Current Trend # - IMPORTANT Please review the last trading day of the week's Trend number as the primary Trend Number or Signal to consider.  Uptrend Downtrend is NOT a day trading tool, as significant intraweek volatility will cause signals to bounce around. Shown are each day's trends as part of an overall trend number view. Regardless, the last trading day of the week is the most important Trend Number to review for Trend changes

Trend Max

This number represents the Highest/Largest Trend # recorded in the last 65 days.

Compare this to the Trend Number on the last trading day of the week to determine if the Trend # is trending DOWN towards or below ZERO and thus representing a potential DownTrend Signal.

Signal

This shows the current signal based on the Trend number being positive or negative. IMPORTANT Please review the last trading day of the week's Trend # as the primary Trend Number or Signal.  UPtrend Downtrend is not a day trading tool as significant intraweek volatility will cause signals to bounce around.  Shown are each day's trends as part of an overall trend number view, regardless, the last trading day of the week is the most important Trend Number to review for Trend changes.

The Trending Chart

The Trending Chart

This shows in a histogram the daily Trend numbers and what is referred to as FORWARD DAY trend Numbers. These Trend Numbers are a hypothetical "what-if " representing the next 20 days of Trend Numbers using a ZERO price gain over each of the next 20 days.

We see the value here as a tool to examine whether Trend momentum is fading or gaining.

Should the price and/or volume increase or decrease over the same period, then obviously thiseffects the Trend Number and Signal.  Regardless, it can provide insight as to the overall underlying Trend momentum.
