The Smart Money Flow Index (SMFI) has long been one of the best kept secrets of Wall Street. Everybody knows the importance of a closing price and other last hour indicators like the Closing Tick, which we publish daily on our portal.

It is all about the right timing!

  • The SMFI will improve your timing skills immediately.
  • The SMFI is measuring what the heavy hitters are doing by removing emotional buying, driven by greed and fear.
  • These guys also have the best possible information available, and they have an edge on all the other market participants.

The Smart Money Flow Index is calculated according to a proprietary formula by measuring the action of the Dow during two periods: within the first 30 minutes and within the last hour. The first 30 minutes represent emotional buying, driven by greed and fear on the part of the crowd, based on good and/or bad news. During the opening, there is also a lot of buying on market orders, as well as short covering. Smart money typically waits until the end, and they tend to test the market beforehand by shorting heavily in order to gauge the market’s reaction. Afterwards, the big investments are made. These heavy hitters tend to have the best possible information available, and they have an edge on all the other market participants.

Why The Crowd Has To Lose All The Time

The markets are an ever discounting mechanism and the product of the behavior of all their participants. Of course, not everybody can win. In order for every market to function, the majority of the participants has to lose. This majority usually constitutes itself of the uninformed and ignorant crowd which rather relies on hot tips or, like gamblers, even on sheer luck instead of doing their homework and spending an extra buck on valuable and useful information.

There are many ways to beat the market, but one of the most successful methods is certainly to go with “Smart Money” and against the so-called “Crowd”. The content of our pages is unique.
