Think methods

Posted on 5/24/2010

IKEA Instructions

One of the most useful thing you must do if you want to be successful in trading or life is to think methods. To be successful trader what you need is a well thought out  method. If you want to trade say growth stocks, then you should have a method to find growth stocks. If you want to trade pullbacks, you must have method to find pullbacks. If you want to trade breakout, you must have a method to find breakout. If you want to use stops in your trading you need a method to determine stops. If you want to time the market, you need method to tell you which is good time to enter and which is good time to exit. 

Why is it difficult to think methodically. In many cases people do not have skills in methodical thinking. The other problem is we are surrounded by opinions and judgments. Everyone has a opinion about everything, not necessarily based on facts. The mass media thrives on that, lot of blogosphere is about it. Opinions and judgments are unique to a person. They are about biases, misconception, ego, influence and seduction. How can you trade a opinion like "Bernanke is a  idiot" or " we are all doomed" or  "US is doomed". Opinions are opinions, they are not tradable. They get you on to TV or get you quoted in Newspaper but they are perfectly useless for trading. Motivations of those who offer opinions is to influence you or seduce you not necessarily to offer tradable method. Those who influence opinions have a method to generate opinions. Glenn Beck is a perfect example of that. 90% of what he says is his opinion it is not based on facts. What is his motivation for churning out all these opinion, money, fame, influence and so on. Same way if you look at CNBC most of it is about opinion.
But to make money in trading or in life you need method. What does a entrepreneur do, he finds a better way to do something. If you work in a organisation, what do successful managers, workers or supervisor do? They find a method to do the job more efficiently. As against that you will see lot of headless chickens wondering around asking what should they do. You will see the same thing in trading, people will ask you what do you think about AAPL  or SNDK, or LOPE or any other stock, or ask I am in ATSG now what do I do. What does it tell you. That person has not thought about a method.

If you spend time on understanding a method and developing a method you will have method related question as against questions on specific trades. If you learn methods it will be life long learning and you will get benefit from the method for years. What stops people from thinking method. Most of the time they have been rewarded in life for not having a very good method. So methodical thinking is not part of their thinking repertoire. 

If you can define a problem properly, you can find a method to solve that problem. Many people ask me what mutual funds they should buy or what ETF they should buy in their retirement account, but very few ask how do I go about finding which mutual funds or ETF to buy in my retirement account. If you ask the second question it is a method question and then one can methodically develop a way to find when to invest in IRA or 401k, how to find mutual funds to invest in, when to exit and so on. I have talked about my method to invest in 401k many times before. If you spend 3 days understanding and replicating it, you will have a lifelong way to answer your question which funds should you buy in 401k and when.

Same thing applies to trading. If you decide to trade momentum stocks, then you need to develop a method to find them, enter them, exit them and so on. What did William O'Neil do, he found a way to find and trade growth stocks. That method works for him. He has detailed it many times in his book , if you spend one month internalizing it, you can also handily beat the market. What did Charles Kirkpatrick do. He found a method to trade value stocks with momentum. If you spend just a week understanding his method, you will find profitable way to trade value stocks. And I can go on and on about this thing, but they key to trading success is about developing method. 

Method is something which you can break down in to steps. Method is something which you can replicate. Method is something you can practice and learn. Method is like driving direction. If the directions are clear and you have the right vehicle you will be able to travel from A to B. Once you have a method you can train your procedural memory to become efficient at performing that method. Methods are about regiments, set of guidelines and rules. Opinions create dependency, methods are about independence. You can replicate a method and trade it on your own. You may or may not agree with the logic of a method and you may find different results with it, but ultimately it is a step by step replicable process.
Methods are like those stick figures Ikea provides to put together the furniture you bought.

When I visit a blog or read something on blog or interact with traders, I am primarily interested in learning what method does this person use. I have studied most of the trading blogs and made detail notes about methods and incorporated some in to my methods. Similarly when I am reading a book or come across an idea my primary focus is how do you make this work. How can I design a method to make this work. As Brett Steenbarger says trading is performance sports. Performance is all about methods.

If you can draw a  Ikea style instruction about your trading method then you have a method.....

What you need to know about market breadth

Posted on 5/20/2010

Extreme positive or negative breadth leads to reversal


When breadth becomes extremely positive or negative such situations resolve in trend change or pullback or correction. In Market Monitor when following things happen it indicates extreme breadth

# of stocks up>25% in a quarter goes below 200 (bullish)

# of stocks down>25% in a quarter goes below 200 (bearish)
# of stocks up>50% in a month goes above 20 (bearish)
# of stocks down>50% in a month goes above 20 (bullish)
% of stocks in confirmed uptrend using Guppy MMA goes below 30 (bullish)

% of stocks in confirmed uptrend using Guppy MMA goes above 70 (bearish)


Such high readings should be interpreted as bullish zone or bearish zones. The actual bullish or bearish reversal may take 8 to 10 days after readings reach such extremes.
Breadth thrust precedes trend change

Breadth thrust means a dramatic change in breadth in short period of time. Breadth thrusts are typically calculated using cumulative breadth. To further refine the breadth thrust smoothing is used along with exponential average of breadth. Then the ratio is further converted in to a oscillator. Zweig Breadth thrust, Absolute breadth Thrust, McClellan Oscillator and many other indicators are based on such breadth thrust calculation. (The actual maths used in doing that is complicated).

Breadth thrust in either direction after a long rally or decline indicates change of trend. In Market Monitor Breadth Thrust is indicated by 10 day ratio.


When the 10 day ratio goes above 2 after market has been in bearish phase for sometime, it indicates bullish breadth thrust and possible change of direction for market.


When the 10 day ratio goes below .5 after market has been bullish for sometime, it indicates a bearish thrust and possible change of direction for market.

Breadth crossover confirm trend change

When breadth turns from positive to negative or the other way, it indicates confirmation of primary breadth trend. In Market Monitor this is indicated by:
# of stocks up>25% in a quarter / # of stocks down>25% in a quarter
# of stocks up>25% in a month / # of stocks down>25% in a month
# of stocks up>13% in 34 days / # of stocks down>13% in 34 days


What happens at the  beginning of a rally


A big 300 plus day on # of stocks up> 4% in day on high volume
Series of 300 plus days in 5to 10 days time frame.
The Cumulative Breadth Ratio goes above 2 confirming start of a bull move.
The Primary Indicator turns bullish
Bottoms tend to be formed suddenly.


What happens at the end of a rally
There is a slow deterioration in breadth on Primary Indicator.
After weeks or month Primary Indicator turns bearish.
The cumulative breadth ratio goes below .5
Real selling starts after that.


Breadth deteriorates slowly at the top


Tops take a long time to form and are difficult to spot. This correction is not following that pattern. I have studied every top in last 40 years or so and seldom market top starts with a crash. 


Breadth suddenly improves at bottom


Market bottoms happen suddenly. Market turns often are a single day phenomenon.


Why it is difficult to understand breadth for beginners


Because lot of concepts in breadth are new to them. Many breadth charts are not interpreted the way most people are used to interpreting charts.

For example Zweig breadth thrust charts are hardly useful because the breadth thrust signal definition is when the readings go up from below 40 to 61.5% that indicates start of a big bull move. The average gain after such breadth thrust is 24% in 11 months post signal. But the signal is very rare. The last Zweig Breadth Thrust signal was on March 23 2009. Before that the breadth thrust gave a signal on August 23 rd 1984. So if you look at Zweig Thrust charts everyday, it is waste of time. 

Similarly interpreting McClellan Summation Index is difficult unless you understand the concept behind it. The charts by themselves of it do not tell you much about how signals are generated. 

I will again advise anyone serious about market breadth to read The Complete Guide to Market Breadth Indicators: How to Analyze and Evaluate market Direction and Strength . It will take you some time to understand and interpret market breadth. 

The Dreyfus model of skill acquisition and developing trading expertise

Posted on 5/19/2010

As I have said earlier the key to success in trading is about developing procedural memory. Procedural memory is a long term memory for skills. It is implicit memory and as a result difficult to verbalize.

Procedural memories are muscle or thinking sequences which have been internalized by the brain and when required to perform a task the procedural memory kicks in and you can effortlessly do the task without being aware of steps. Procedural memory is also called skills memory.

The most well known psychological  model of skill acquisition is called Dreyfus model. In 1980, two brothers working in the area of artificial intelligence and software were commissioned by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFSC)to study skill acquisition. They submitted a report to AFSC titled " A five stage model of mental activities involved in skill acquisition".

Subsequently the model was published by them in a book    Mind over machine: The power of human intuition and expertise in the era of the computer , in which they proposed a model of skill acquisition that argued that skill acquisition process is 5 progressive stages of development.

The five stages of development are:
  1. Stage 1: novice
  2. Stage 2 : advanced beginner
  3. Stage 3: competent
  4. Stage 4 : proficient
  5. Stage 5: expert


Novice
At novice stage it is all about following the rules. The novice thinks in terms of rules but has no context or ability to modify rules. At this stage the energy is focusing on following the rules rather than thinking. 

Advance Beginner
Is still rule based but rules are now situational based . So instead of blindly using the rules at this stage you start using a set of rule in a A situation and different set of rules in B situation. 

Competent
At this stage you start to realize that performing this skill has more to it than just following rules or changing rules according to situation. You start to see patterns and principles and start realizing rules are not absolute and they are guidelines or rule of thumb. You start performing the skills more by experience and active decision making rather than strict rules. 

Proficient
At this stage you start thinking in terms of complete picture. You develop a perspective about your area of skill or focus. 

Expert
At this stage it is intuitively appropriate action without being conscious of you skills. 

The Dreyfus model of skill acquisition is widely used in various fields to develop instruction material for training new skills. As a trader if you understand the model you can work on your own skills better.

Essential Books for growth and momentum traders

Posted on 5/18/2010

There was a question about which books I recommend . You will rarely get a complete setup in any book. Even if you get it, you may not appreciate it because you have not gone through the discovery process and rejection of several setups before the author found what works for him. There is lot of learnings in rejected setups.

Two types of traders

Posted on 5/06/2010

You will see two types of traders today:
  1. Those who will externalize the problem
  2. Those who will internalize the problem
The first kind will learn nothing from today. They will spend their time shouting at quant funds, fat fingers, SEC, exchanges, Washington, Obama. Goldman and so on.....

The second kind will develop method to as best as they can avoid a situation like this again....
The easiest thing is to externalize the problem..

But at same time you know there are traders who were on right side of this trade.
Not based on luck but based on method...

Minervini was out before this selloff and he has detailed his method for arriving at his decision...
Many other CANSLIM traders were in cash or lightly invested based on their method of looking at leading stocks.
A blog I have highlighted couple of times Wishing Wealth was also out and warning about this market since last couple of days based on his GMI index.

My own Market Monitor timing model was warning about a correction based on big moves breadth.

So people do have methods to determine when to be aggressive and when to be cautious.
Study those method...

It is easy to externalize problems, but if you are looking for real growth as a trader, internalize problem and search for solutions...

This applies not only to trading but to life in general....

Some reactions from Stockbee Members today:

Can I just raise a glass of single malt scotch to toast the market monitor - it got me out last week. It's taken 6+ months, but I'm finally getting a feel for MM :)


WOW....Thank you Pradeep, because of you I am in cash and not long.....Got out of my shorts too early but that is OK... Oportunity on the recovery...you definitely have my respect


Pradeep, my respect for you and MM have gone up hundred fold. Despite you teaching, I have done some stupid things - but I am in a much better position than the last market meltdown.


i second that! thank you Guru


: I am in the exact same boat as you are :). Guru, you are actually Maha-Guru.. "Shat, Shat Pranam"


now double thanks.... :0 i was sitting back and watching and laughing at the action... 'guru for president'


i hope everyone is having as much fun as i am :)


site has taught me that cash is a position. sometimes the best decision is the one not taken.


Thank God for Pradeep and his Market Monitor!


Pradeep - please bill your drink to my membership account. That $150 has paid for itself over and over and over and over and over and over and over.


guru have a drink. it's on me :)


Let me also chime in..For the first time in 8years moved to cash entirely last week and was in complete tune with MM numbers. Going into today had a couple of short positions including Guru's pick SOHU. Was a bit slow to cover into the frenzy. Nevertheless, the profits were protected. Not a penny lost infact made some in the catastrophe. Many thanks to Guru and his ingenious invention


Hats off to you Pradeep and your MM...moved to cash last Thursday, as I learned to respect MM signals the hard way. I owe you a debt of gratitude for all your apprenticeship. Cheers!!
