The Movement of Stocks

by Oliver Velez

The following is an excerpt from Oliver Velez's Swing Trading Home Study Course

There are only three things a stock can do; go up, go down, or go sideways. That’s it. There is no other movement possible. In other words, there are primarily three dominant trends in the market: uptrends, downtrends, and sideways trends.

An uptrend is defined as follows:

  1. A series of higher highs and a series of higher lows on the rallies. In other words, each successive rally takes out or supersedes the prior peak from the prior rally. Each drop holds above the low of the prior drop.

  2. A rising 20- and a rising 40-period moving average. We use simple moving averages based on the close.

  3. The rising 20- and 40-period moving averages have a consistent distance between them. We call that a “railroad track” appearance. When you have this picture, you have a stock in an uptrend that is completely dominated by the buyers, as shown in the chart below.

The quality of your long trades will vary directly with the quality of the uptrend that the stock is in.

The definition of downtrend is just the reverse:

  1. A series of lower highs and a series of lower on the sell-offs. In other words, each successive drop takes out or falls below the prior low from the prior decline. Each counter rally falls far short of the high of the prior rally.

  2. A declining 20- and a declining 40-period moving average, using simple moving averages based on the close.

  3. The declining 20- and 40-period moving averages have a consistent distance between them. Again, we call that a “railroad track” appearance. When you have this picture, you have a stock in a downtrend that is completely dominated by the sellers.

The stock in the chart below is an example of a downtrend. I want to take a moment to discuss the difference psychologically between uptrends and downtrends. There is a tremendous bias among Americans and new traders especially to be bullish on the stock market. It is important for you to understand that you cannot carry a preconceived bias into the market. You must be willing to adapt and be bullish or bearish depending upon the trend of the timeframe you are playing.

This can be a difficult task for many people, and many people struggle to understand downtrends or bearish strategies. In every case, without exception, the strategy to short a stock is exactly the reverse of the strategy to be long a stock. The decision of which direction to favor must be based totally and impartially on the trend of the chart you are playing.

Third, we have the sideways trend. The sideways trend is defined as a stock having relatively equal highs and relatively equal lows. There is a tug-of-war going on between both groups and neither of the groups is winning. This is demonstrated in the chart below.

The Best Seasonal Trades

by George Angell

The following is an excerpt from George Angell's The Money Secret

Seasonal trades are based on the tendency of some markets to rise and fall during specific times during the year. Seasonal trades are easy in the sense that you only need to buy or sell one futures contract – hence, the complexity of the trading is decreased. There are many, many seasonal trend patterns. Moreover, there are key patterns that need to manifest themselves around certain holidays such as the stock market’s tendency to go up just prior to Christmas.

Originally, the notion of seasonal trading was based on the harvesting and processing patterns of agricultural commodities. But, in more recent years, analysts have discovered that even financial instruments demonstrate viable seasonal patterns. While far from a sure-fire method of trading futures contracts, “seasonals” are another weapon in the trader’s arsenal.


The trading rule is: Buy Copper during January, February or March.

The tendency for Copper prices to rise early in the year is a high as 75 percent, with February being the month most likely to experience a price increase. On a seasonal basis, Copper prices, like so many futures, tend to rise in two distinct legs. The first leg corresponds to the first quarter of the calendar, with profit-taking temporarily pushing prices lower prior to a sustained rally into the late summer and culminating after Labor Day. Thus, for a long-term trade, one in which you might even want to “roll” the Copper position from month-to-month, look to purchase during January and sell after Labor Day during years when this market makes sustained rallies.


The trading rule is: Sell wheat early in the year to take profits at the mid-summer lows in July or August.

As a traditional seasonal commodity, wheat tends to decline in price as the harvest season brings large supplies to market in mid-summer. The seasonal tendency for wheat to decline in the winter and early spring into the summer months is almost 75 percent. Another wheat play is try to become a bottom picker during mid July and August when the odds favor a rally in wheat prices into the fall and end of the year. If you are looking for a short-term play in wheat, look to sell July wheat in early April. The probabilities that you will get price erosion into the end of June are quite high.
