S&P 500:
Examples of a Short-Term Trades

We define a "short-term" trend as a general market trend that usually lasts from a few hours to several days.

The following example illustrates the basic principles behind MarketVolume®'s analysis.

Chart 1. Relationship between surges in the volume moving average (VMA) and index reversal points. NASDAQ 100 index. March 21, 2006.

Above, you can see the short-term relationship between price (i.e., index level) and volume. An increase in volume subsequently affects the movement of price, causing the index to change direction. You can see that when the Volume Moving Average surges, the index reacts. With this knowledge, you can trade confidently and profitably. Index values will always (sometimes immediately, sometimes with a delay) react to volume surges, and the greater the magnitude of a surge (or series of surges), the stronger the ensuing reaction.

Index Trades based on selling and buying volume Extent of Trend Reversal

NASDAQ 100 Sell short on April 4, 2006 and sell on April 17, 2006 2.8% down
