In a perfect world every trade should be a winner. The success of any particular the trade is not the fault of the charts but rather the trader. It is a question of discipline to take the necessary action combined with the knowledge of the correct trade parameters, and knowledge coupled with the action when the correct pattern appears. If you learn the correct technique and act only when everything is in place you will always make a profit.
New traders tend to over analyze the charts, instead of looking for the pattern using the preselected list of stocks. New traders lack the patience to wait for clearly defined patterns. The clearest patterns result in the highest returns with the least risk.
I began teaching when some investors asked me to explain my trading style. Ever since then I've been sharing my discovery with enlightened traders around the world . I enjoy showing people the extraordinary possibilities without enduring the hardship I did. I wish someone would've taught me how to avoid the pain of learning how to invest. As the saying goes "the harder the conflict the more glorious the triumph.

Trading stock options is a much different game from trading the underlying stocks. When options are traded for appreciation, it is a game of leverage, with big risks and associated big returns. One of the attractions of trading options is that you do not need a large amount of starting capital. It’s also easy to play both sides of the market by purchasing call options for the upside and put options for the downside.
The MACDI is a two-component indicator based on two exponential moving price averages. Because of the early signals which can be derived from this indicator, it is regarded by many analysts as helpful in the trading of stock options.
The first component of the MACDI is a line which represents the difference between two moving averages, each computed for a different period of time. This first component is called the Price Phase Line. The second component, which is called the Signal Line, is an exponential average of the first component.
The two lines are charted together on the same time scale. The Price Phase Line is the upper line during upward price movements and the lower line during downward movements. The Signal Line, being an average of the Price Phase Line, is the lower line during upward moves and the upper line during downward moves.
As a general rule, it is considered bullish when the Price Phase Line is rising and is above the Signal Line. Conversely, it is bearish when the Price Phase Line is falling and is below the Signal Line.
Buy and sell signals are generated by the crossing of the two lines. In general, a buy signal occurs when the Price Phase Line crosses from below to above the Signal Line. A sell signal is indicated when the Price Phase Line crosses from above to below the Signal Line.
Because of its smoothed nature, this indicator can be helpful in highly volatile markets such as the options market. Although generally less effective during narrow, trendless markets, it provides good signals during widely swinging trading ranges and at the conclusion of strong trends.
MACDI is especially valuable for its ability to signal a turnaround following a sharp decline. In this situation, divergences are particularly significant and often predate important market bottoms. Divergences pertain to trends and occur when the trend of price action and the trend of an indicator are in opposite directions.
In addition to trend breaks, divergences, and Signal Line crossings, it is important to watch for overbought and oversold levels. When the MACDI rises above a certain level, the ticker is in an overbought region and a reversal is likely. The same is true in the oversold direction.
The V bottom is a V-shaped bottom as the name suggests. The dip is very sharp. It is due to the irrationality of actors leading to a steep fall that will be corrected just after. The V bottom occurs most often in a downward trend and often signals a trend reversal.
