Investment Success Made Simple
When it comes to making informed decisions in the market, having a clear understanding of major trends and movements is crucial. One of the most effective ways to gain this understanding is by systematically analyzing the supply and demand for current trends, as well as studying the trading behavior of both institutional investors (referred to as “Smart Money”) and individual investors (referred to as “Dumb Money”).
“Smart Money” has access to more information and resources, which enables these investors to make more informed decisions. On the other hand, “Dumb Money” tends to make decisions based on market hype or fear, which can lead to poor investment choices. By focusing on key performance drivers, investors can gain a solid understanding of establishing trends and potential changes, allowing them to adjust their investment strategy accordingly.
This approach not only helps investors stay ahead of the market, but also enables them to make informed decisions that align with their investment goals. Whether you’re a seasoned investor or just starting out, understanding market trends and movements is essential for success. By analyzing supply and demand and studying the behavior of both institutional and individual investors, you can gain valuable insights and make smarter investment decisions.
Identify Strong Trends in Early Stages and Know When They End
Below you can see a few guided examples of typical indicators offered by WallStreetCourier. Please have a closer look at our spotlight section to find brief, but in-depth analysis on selected indicators provided by WallStreetCourier.
We Sorted the Wheat From the Chaff
At WallStreetCourier, we understand that investing is a serious matter that requires a fact-based approach. That’s why we’ve created a comprehensive and user-friendly indicators section to help investors track the key performance drivers that really matter.
The special feature of our indicators is that they do not only measure and identify the price trend of the S&P 500, but also the trend quality (aggregated trend information of its underlying constituents on multiple time frames), as well as market sentiment (the investment behavior of Smart and Dumb Money). This valuable information enables us to identify the “real trend” by measuring the underlying trend-participation on a daily basis. Hence, we are able to gauge if the current price trend of the S&P 500 is backed by a broad basis (high quality trend) or if it is just driven by a few heavy-weighted stocks in the index (low quality trend). If the second one holds, a reversal in these stocks could easily trigger a trend break since there is no safety net around them to cushion such a move. This often coincides with the time Dumb Money goes in big, whereas Smart Money is already taking the opposite side of the trade. This is the time when trend followers should switch to a contrarian approach.
Thus, our approach is straightforward and efficient. Instead of overwhelming you with an excessive number of indicators, we’ve carefully selected a set of well-tested indicators that are consistent and complementary to each other. This approach not only saves time but also reduces the number of redundant signals based on the same input data. Each indicator is designed to track a specific aspect of the market (trend, trend quality or sentiment), providing you with a clear and unbiased view of the essential performance drivers. With that information, investors can make informed decisions in the market by gaining a clear understanding of major trends and movements through the systematic analysis of supply and demand for ongoing trends, as well as the trading behavior of both “Smart Money” and “Dumb Money”.
One of the key indicators included in our selection is the famous Smart Money Flow Index, which is also featured on Bloomberg Professional. This indicator is known for its ability to generate reliable signals, making it a must-have tool for any investor.
