How do you generate your timing signals?
Tacticaltradingsignal.com has developed a Model that can be simple to use. This proprietary Model is based on price and volume action on the S&P 500 Index, Nasdaq 100, or other equity indices*. It can provide a great way for investors to become active in the market. The Model has been developed with over 30 years of market data. Our Model consist of various technical indicators that we evaluate on a daily basis and then decide if a change in market position is needed. The ability to evaluate our model and add our years of investing experiance gives us a model that is designed to evolve with the changing markets and is not a 100% mechanical system. Our Model is not intended for day traders, but for investors, as it generates few signals. In a typical year, only 3-4 signals will be issued.
|How and when do I get notified about signal changes?|
Tacticaltradingsignal.com's Model is run real-time each trading day. If a new signal is issued, it will be posted on this Web site the same day. Subscribers are also notified of the signal change by e-mail.
|How do I cancel and discontinue the service?|
You can cancel at anytime. You simply have to send a cancellation request by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please specify your User ID in the message. All future billing will be stopped when a cancel request is received. Please Remember that no refunds will be issued.
|What is Tactical Trading?|
Tactical Trading is an investment approach developed by Tacticaltradingsignal.com, which enables investors to potentially profit in both up or down markets by implementing a Model that follows the broad market trends. Our technical Model observes past and current market action to determine the general market direction. The Model is developed for long-term investors and instead of daily or weekly trading, it only generates on average 3 to 4 trades per year. Owing in part to its long term orientation, the Tactical Trading Model has the unique ability to capture major stock markets moves over extended periods of time, and in turn allows the signals to be applied consistantly to various market indices. As technical analysts, we do not predict how long a trend will last or how strong it will be. No one can do so consistently. The beauty of the Model is that we always know exactly where we stand, as long as the major trend is up we have a Bullish signal, and as long as the trend is down we have a Bearish signal.
|Why try to actively trade the stock market?|
Many people will tell you that it is useless to try to actively trade the market, because it cannot be done consistently. We disagree, and we hope you will too.
Many investors fail to actively trade the market because they make decisions based on emotions, not facts. Human nature pushes us to follow the crowd and overpay for a stock that is about to peak, or dump another one because of a scary market drop, when we should in fact be buying it.
Of course such a Model will only be as good as the criteria and indicators it uses to generate trading signals. The Tacticaltradingsignal.com Model was developed to provide a way to actively trade the broad stock market. As Buy and Hold investors have learned in 2000, 2001, and 2002, being invested in stocks during a significant market drop can be devastating. An investor following Tacticaltradingsignal.com's signalmay not only have been able to avoid those losses, butmay have also profited from the market collapse.
We recommend using diversified investment vehicles that mirror major market indices such as the Nasdaq 100 and the S&P 500, which we track on our site.
Index tracking investments mostly fall in two categories: Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) and mutual funds. Similar to stocks, ETFs can be bought long, sold short, on margin, and can be traded at the market open, the day following a signal change. Mutual funds on the other hand are usually traded at the market close. However, since mutual funds can be found to match, double, inverse, and double inverse performance objectives for most indices, they can be used to implement all four strategies and are viable alternatives for qualified retirement accounts. Also see Glossary .
|Why not cover the Dow Jones Industrial Index?|
The Dow Jones Industrials consists of only 30 large industrial companies and therefore is less diversified than the indices we cover and more prone to behave at odds from the broad market. Our site follows and reports on the Nasdaq 100 and the S&P 500, which are some of the largest, and most respected indices. While all indices may generally move in unison, they represent slightly different facets of the market. With the largest non-financial companies on the Nasdaq Stock Exchange (Nasdaq 100), anda broad large-cap index (S&P 500), they present a further opportunity to diversify, or optimize, depending on individual preference.
|I am a new subscriber. How should I act on your current active signal?|
We usually recommend that new subscribers await the next trade. Entering a trade after it has already begun may be profitable, but the risks are higher. You may enter an existing position, but we recommend using a stop to minimize any loss that may occur.
|When to trade after a new signal has been issued?|
Tacticaltradingsignal.com's Model is run real-time each trading day. If a new signal is issued, it will be posted on this Web site the same day. Subscribers are also notified of the signal change by e-mail by 7 pm CMT that same day.
If your selected investment vehicle is an ETF, your order should be placed before the market opens on the next trading day. Since ETFs trade like stock, they can be bought or sold at market open. All performance results posted on this site assume the trading occurs at market open, the day after a signal change. This is the only realistic way to measure performance, as you could not possibly have acted on the new signal any earlier.
If your selected investment vehicle is a mutual fund, your order should be placed before or during the trading hours of the day following the signal change. Since most mutual fund families only calculate the Net Asset Value (NAV) at the end of each trading day, this ensures that you will buy the mutual fund at the first available price. This is a significant difference between ETFs and mutual funds: whereas you can buy an ETF right at market open, you in effect have to wait until market close to buy an equivalent mutual fund. Over time the performance impact of the one day delay should be fairly minor but, nevertheless, you should be on the lookout for fund families that are starting to offer intra-day mutual fund pricing.
|Your current signal is losing money. Should I move to a money market fund and wait for a signal change?|
No, our recommendaion is to follow our signal.If in doubt, have a look at our page and you will see that the best course of actionhas beento simply follow the signal.
Furthermore, because we recognize that no trading system will be right 100% of the time, we designed a way to limit losses in our Model: a Neutral signal is automatically issued by our Model if a 8% - 15% trailing stop is activated on a position basis. This is designed to keep any losses to a reasonable minimum from the entry point when we are most vulnerable, as no trading system will always be 100% right. When a Neutral signal is generated, you should consider liquidating your current long or short investments and keep the proceeds in cash or in a money market fund until a new Bullish or Bearish signal is issued.
