Let The Indicator Fit The Market by Martha Stokes, CMT

Oscillators are often the first indicators to signal a breakout, but most traders donít notice. Hereís how you can interpret oscillator patterns with confidence.

Traders are taught that there are three types of trends: up, down, and sideways. They attempt to select strategies and indicators based on these types. However, there is another approach that makes trading easier and more reliable.

A far more successful approach is to let the market condition dictate what indicators you should use. Market condition is not only the analysis of the relationship between the primary (long-term) trend, the intermediateterm trend, and short-term trend but also the analysis of the short-term bias and the intermediate- and long-term strength and direction, as well as the analysis of the market participants. Who is trading, how are they trading, and what are they trading? By understanding these facts you can read the current market condition to determine whether it is a velocity, moderately trending, platform-building, trading-range, bottoming, or topping market condition.


Uptrending markets have basically three modes: valueoriented or accumulation by institutional investors, a moderate investing and trading growth trend where more market participant levels enter, and speculative short-term trading for profits by institutional traders along with newsdriven emotional buying by inexperienced investors and retail traders.
