Doing It My Way

Evaluation Of Stocks, ETFs, And Funds

In times of price volatility and diverging political and financial theories on world markets, how will independent traders survive? Find out how one trader navigates the markets with a daily evaluation method.

Trading activities are controlled by organizations that trade large volumes, profit from small gains, and use ultrafast computer trading systems. Do independent retail traders have a place in such an environment?

In my article “Buy & Sell Signals Using Stochastics” published in October 2012, I discussed the advantage of buy and sell signals using variable-length stochastics. I am going to extend those ideas and incorporate them into a daily stockevaluation method that anybody with access to a computer and printer can use.

Almost every evening after the markets close, I evaluate the entire database of my trading platform. There are about 7,500 entries. To look at each of those charts for 10 seconds would be time-consuming, which is why I use the sorting and scanning features available in my trading platform, TC2000 v12. My evaluation, when properly planned, takes about five to 10 minutes and forms the basis of my trading decisions for the next day. All formulas I have provided in this article are in the TC2000 format.

There are many ways to perform an exhaustive stock evaluation; I do not claim to know the best one, but what I do works for me. In this article I will share my approach, which I hope will help you set up an evaluation system that works for you.
