1 Technical Analysis Explained Presented by Martin J. Pring

2 Three Points to Take Home. 1. Prices are determined by psychology, people s attitude to the emerging fundamentals not the fundamentals themselves. 2. Keep things simple and apply common sense at all times. 3. Only use approaches that make sense to you.

3 Real Earnings are not Correlated to Stock Prices ( ) 4 Inflation Adjusted Equities Shiller Real Earnings (10-year MA)

4 Deflated US Stock Prices versus Shiller P/E Ratio CPI Adjusted S&P Composite Deflated US Stock Prices Shiller P/E??

5 Definition of Technical Analysis: The art of identifying a price trend reversal at a relatively early stage and riding on that trend until..the weight of the evidence shows or proves that the trend has reversed.

6 In technical analysis we are dealing in probabilities, never certainties.

7 The hopes and fears of all market participants are reflected in one thing.the price!!

8 Technical analysis assumes that prices move in trends.

9 Trends have a tendency to perpetuate because...

10 Prices in any freely traded market are determined by the attitude of all market participants to the underlying fundamentals.

11 A trend is a trend is a trend. Always assume the prevailing trend is in existence.

12 There is no known technique for determining the duration and exact magnitude of a price move. We can only recognize a change in direction.

13 It doesn t matter what time frame you are following... the principles of technical analysis remain constant.

14 The only difference is the longer the time frame, the greater the significance of any given trend reversal.

15 It doesn t matter what security you are following... the principles of technical analysis remain constant. If human nature ever changes technical analysis will die!!

16 Trends

17 What is a trend?

36 Goldman Goldman Sachs Sachs Commodity Commodity Index Index 30-day ROC Extreme overbought is a bull market characteristic

37 Psychology and One and Two Bar Price Patterns

38 Outside bars

39 Outside bar Encompasses trading range of previous bar and then some!! We want the close to be in the lower end of the trading range.

40 Close should be in the upper part of the range. Encompasses trading range of previous bar and then some!!

41 Measuring the Significance of Outside Bars 1. The wider the bar and the wider the difference between the open and close the better. 2. The sharper the preceding rally (reaction for a down reversal) the better.

42 Bank of India Daily Bank of India Outside bar

43 Two Bar Reversals

44 Sharp rally

45 Closes near the high First bar opens near the low.

46 Second bar opens near the high Closes near the low

47 Resistance zone The lower the resistance zone the better.

54 December Australian Dollar minute bar No reversal signals here!!

55 December Australian Dollar 2006 Hourly bar Instant confirmation Two bar reversal

56 December Australian Dollar 2006 S&P ETF (SPY) Two bar reversal Outside bar Outside bar

57 Partial Checklist for Identifying a Stock Market Peak Strong economy Preceded by rising short-term interest rates. Rotation already moved to earnings driven sectors. RS momentum of leaders rolling over. Market breadth leads the way down. Net new highs diverge negatively

58 Partial Checklist for Identifying a Stock Market Peak Long-term momentum peaking. Confirmed by trendline breaks and negative 12- month MA crossovers. Bullish sentiment. Question is no longer if, but when and by how much is the market going higher?

59 S&P versus the Economy

60 S&P versus Bond Yield Momentum

61 Sector Momentum Position August Inflation/Deflation Ratio) KST Green highlights show when KST is rising.
