Market Forecasting Secrets for Traders and Investors

Market Forecasting is the science and art of determining in advance when a market is most likely to change direction and may also include the likely duration of the anticipated move.

Market Analysis is all about taking current price data and applying technical analysis and/or fundamental analysis in order to determine what the market has already done and what it is doing now, and may or may not include Market Forecasting.

If Market Forecasting is included, the degree to which it is included will vary widely from one analyst to another. The method of forecasting may be as simple as anticipating the crossing of an indicator line or the reaction to the breakout of some level of resistance, or as sophisticated as to predict the very date when the market will likely change direction (new trend direction or the beginning/end of a trend correction).

The method of forecasting involved in my analysis of price data is very sophisticated and naturally proprietary. The science behind my work is based strongly in the mathematics of market cycles. Market cycles provide a roadmap to future price direction and the likely culmination of one move into a new one.

There are various approaches to analyzing price data for cycle footprints. These cycles expose themselves to oscillators and moving averages (indicators), the tracking of seasonality, and even the monitoring of various planetary bodies and the effect it has on the earth (produce and psychology).

A trader or investor can do quite a bit of market forecasting without having to delve deeply into the really technical aspects that I use for my clients. Here are some suggestions to help you get started in determining the trend and likely duration.

Start with the WEEKLY price chart.

Using a weekly price chart, where each price bar represents one trading week, locate the start of a new move. What that means is to find a clearly defined swing bottom or top where the new direction starts from.

Usually, prices tend to change direction at Fibonacci points in time. For example, look for a possible turn 3 bars later, then 5 bars later, than 8 and so-forth. If you are not familiar with Fibonacci, there is much written on this subject.

Keep in mind that not only can you do this for every clearly defined swing top or bottom, but that they will overlap. For example, you may note that a certain week is 8 weeks from a previous top/bottom, and also 3 weeks from the most recent top/bottom.

Never expect exact counts all the time. If you count out 55 weeks from a previous top/bottom, it is possible that it could occur on week 56. In fact, it is possible that it won't occur at all. Be mindful of these pitfalls.

The key here is to get a 'time period' to focus on for a possible weekly turn. Then, turn to your daily chart and look for evidence of a possible trend change, such as your indicators being overbought or oversold and possibly looking to reverse. You can even apply the time-count approach to your daily chart and look for clustering within the weekly time frame you are analyzing for. Clustering is when you have two or more results pointing to the same time period (within a day or two) based on counting from different previous tops and bottoms. These are time periods you want to watch.

There are so many valuable market forecasting techniques you can use to help you predict future market turns. I have included 12 powerful methods in my Market Forecasting Secrets book. By adding Market Forecasting to your chart analysis, you can be ready at the right time to either plan new trades or exit existing trades. Another big bonus is that it helps lower your risk exposure, since there is no better place to enter a trade than near the very beginning of a new move.

Know in Advance the Market Turns of Tomorrow! With the right market information, you will know when to a bottom or top is going to form with a high degree of accuracy. The FDates Market Timing Membership provides the right market information you need to succeed.

Junior ISA One Year Old

Having been in operation for a year it is time to look at whether the Junior ISA has been a success. This savings plan for children was set up by the government as a way for parents to invest on behalf of their children.

A Junior ISA allows parents to invest up to £3,600 every year with no tax having to be paid on interest or capital gains. A child will gain access to their ISA upon their eighteenth birthday. At that point they can transfer it into a regular ISA and, should they so choose, start to use the money as they see fit.

Whether the first year of this children's ISA can be considered a success or not depends on how you perceive success in this instance. An obvious comparison that will be made is with its predecessor, the Child Trust Fund, which was introduced by the Labour government in 2005, with children born from 2002 eligible. Under that scheme parents were given a £250 CTF voucher upon their child's birth to invest on their behalf. Had this not been invested after a year then an account was automatically opened for them. They could then contribute up to £1,200 a year towards the fund and were given another £250 voucher when their child turned seven years old (although very few reached this age before it was discontinued). There is one main benefit and one main disadvantage of the JISA compared to the CFT. The main benefit is the higher allowance with the lack of the initial government contribution being the key disadvantage.

If comparing the Junior ISA with the Child Trust Fund, the number of accounts opened has been significantly lower than the number of accounts opened in the first year of the Child Trust Fund. This isn't really an accurate comparison, though. Not only does it include accounts that were automatically opened after a year, but parents had more of an incentive to open an account. With no government Junior ISA contribution it means that those who are not planning to make regular contributions do not have the same incentive to open an account. On the other hand, of the accounts that have been opened the average contributions have been higher. These two comparisons suggest that fewer parents have had sufficient incentive or funds to open an account but, of those who have, they are contributing more. This is, in part, because they are able to contribute more due to the allowance being three times as much.

There may have been more Junior ISA accounts opened were it not for the regular adult ISA, which has a much higher allowance of £11,280. It has been suggested that many parents are choosing to use part of this ISA allowance to effectively invest on behalf of their children. For example, parents that might wish to invest £2,000 on behalf of themselves and other £2,000 on behalf of their child might invest the full £4,000 in their ISA, rather than putting £2,000 of it towards a Junior ISA.

The long term success of the Junior ISA remains to be seen. Though we can look at trends, one year is too soon to realistically judge how successful it will be, especially considering the current economic climate.

Commercial Property VS Residential Property By Jane L Coopers


Commercial property purchases tend to be larger projects, requiring greater outlay than residential property investing. Deposits also usually need to be larger - for commercial properties the purchaser usually needs to put up at least 30 per cent of the purchase price. Interest rates on commercial loans also tend to be higher.


    Commercial: larger properties and usually a larger minimum deposit required, at at least 30 per cent of total purchase price.
    Residential: - smaller deposit required, usually at least 80 per cent of total purchase price but in some cases purchasers can borrow up to 100 per cent.


Net income for landlords tend to be higher for commercial investment, ranging around 7 - 10 per cent after costs. In part this is due to the fact that tenants pay for insurance, ongoing maintenance and other outgoings.


    Commercial - tends to attract higher net income. Tax deductions can be more substantial as depreciation tends to be higher
    Residential - investors usually need to pay all maintenance and associated costs.

Length of Leases

Commercial contracts attract longer lease periods. Most commercial leases are signed for three years or more.


    Commercial - leases are longer, being usually three years or more, and even up to 20 years
    Residential - shorter leases of around six - 12 months in length

Risk and Property Values

While historically, the majority of residential property has tended to double every decade or so, demand in commercial property can fluctuate with the business cycle. However, both types offer good capital growth opportunities for keen investors.


    Commercial property - property value growth is harder to predict, but risk can be minimised by choosing to invest in a popular and in-demand commercial area
    Residential property - property value growth tends to be more predictable, with steady growth in demand pushing up prices over the longer term

Maintenance Costs

Most residential property maintenance is the responsibility of the landlord, while the leasor or the owner of the commercial property usually passes on responsibility for maintenance to the commercial tenant.


    Commercial property - the tenant has responsibility for ongoing maintenance
    Residential property - the landlord covers maintenance costs for the property, though this can be negatively geared


Residential properties are generally easier to let as it takes longer to find commercial tenants. However, commercial tenants tend to pay more attention to maintaining the property as part of their business, and this may even be a condition in commercial leases.


    Commercial property - commercial tenants tend to keep properties in their original condition or even improve them
    Residential property - residential tenants tend to be easier to find than commercial tenants

Different Investments for Different People

Different investments are suitable for people in difference situations. Choosing how to invest comes down to many factors, including the amount of available funds, the aim of the investment, the point in which the investor finds themselves in their life, and personal preference. Below are some of the investments that should be considered by people in different circumstances.

Those with Limited to Medium Funds

For those with less than £12,000 to invest a year an ISA might be worth considering. The current ISA limit is set at £11,280. All of this can be put towards a stocks and shares ISA but it can be split between a stocks and shares ISA and a cash ISA; up to half of it can be put towards the cash ISA. The advantage of an ISA is the tax benefit; no tax has to be paid on interest or capital gains, something that can make a significant difference over several years. ISA's are ideal to those investing over a long period. Riskier, but potentially higher reward investments, might be more attractive to those investing a similar amount over a short period, although here it is advisable to split it across a number of investments to spread the risk.

Wealthy Investors

An ISA will not be sufficient for those wishing to invest particularly large amounts, although they will be able to invest up to £11,280 in one. Property investment is possibly the most appropriate as, despite the current market, house prices are still likely to rise in the future. With housing, though, it is important to choose homes in the right areas. If investing in real estate properties can be rented out and sold once the value has increased. It is likely that property will continue to be a way that people can make big investment gains in the future.

Investing on Behalf of Children

There are a number of children's savings plans out there, with the relatively new Junior ISA the best known of these. The Junior ISA works in a similar way to a regular ISA with a set maximum allowance and no tax being payable on interest or capital gains. There are two important distinctions though; the limit is lower than a regular ISA - currently £3,600 - and it can't be touched until the child turns eighteen. At this point they gain control of the ISA and can withdraw the accumulated funds if they like.

The Young and Middle Aged

There is a pension problem amongst young people and even those in their forties and fifties, with many yet to have started planning for their retirement. This is partly due to a lack of good employer pensions as well as the failure of individuals to start their own. Those who are able to should start to pay into a pension plan as soon as possible. The younger someone is when they start a pension the better, and a few years can make a big difference come retirement.

The Retired

Those already retired will hopefully already have an adequate pension, so what are good investments for them? The answer might lie in investing in companies through stocks and shares. Asian investment funds are one option due to the current growth of the Asian stock market, although there are many other options too.

2013 And 2014 Bond Bubble - Best Investment Funds If Bubble Bursts

If the bond bubble bursts in 2013 or 2014 it will be headline news and it's best to know where your best investment funds - the best mutual funds to invest money in - are now. The best mutual funds to invest money in will invest your money in what are called "alternative investments". If you are not familiar with these specialty funds, it's time to pay attention.

There IS a bond bubble because bond prices are absurdly high, which has resulted in record low interest rates. If you are an average investor your best investment vehicle takes the form of mutual funds; but it's your job (or your financial planner's job) to find the best mutual funds to invest money in. Most investors (and financial planners) see only 3 basic choices to invest money in: safe investments, bonds, and stocks. Alternative investments like gold, silver, basic metals, real estate, natural resources, and other commodities and TANGIBLES are too often ignored.

I suggest that alternative investments are your best investment if the bond bubble bursts in 2013 or 2014 because tangibles like basic materials (like copper and aluminum), oil, and real estate have an INTRINSIC VALUE. They are not just financial assets like stocks and bonds. The best mutual funds will be those that invest money in these areas (for you). Here's the logic.

The bond bubble bursts - which means that BIG investors sell bonds and send bond prices into a tailspin. The really big investors (like insurance companies, pension funds, and mutual fund companies) SELL as much and as fast as they can. FEAR strikes the stock market and heavy selling sends prices (in general) down. Bond funds are pummeled and DIVERSIFIED equity (stock) funds are severely bruised. Where will the big investors invest money now? Since they've just cashed in billions and billions in the markets, the money they've taken in has to go someplace. And what about average investors who thought they owned the best mutual funds, bond funds?

Big money will flow to the money market (the safe haven). It will also search for the best alternative investment. For most people the simplest way to invest money in this alternative arena will be through specialty equity (stock) funds that invest money in stocks of companies involved in specialty areas like precious metals, energy, basic materials, and real estate. These should be the best mutual funds and your best investment to earn higher returns if the bond bubble bursts and the stock market in general tumbles.

The best investment strategy for 2013 and 2014 will be to cut your exposure to bond funds and general diversified stock funds. The best mutual funds to invest more money in: money market funds for safety, and specialty funds that invest in the "alternative investment" arena for growth and higher returns. The best investment portfolio should include all 4 asset classes: cash (safe investments), bonds, stocks, and alternative investments.

Should the bond bubble burst in 2013 or 2014 high uncertainty and risk will make it difficult to invest money and find the single best investment or best mutual fund. Spread your money around and diversify across the 4 asset classes to achieve true balance. That's the best investment advice I can think of.

Hot Stock Tip: Don't Take Tips

Well meaning friends and advisories often send out specific picks as to what to trade and when.

Unfortunately, there are inherent dangers in such programs, despite everyone's best efforts. First, even with Twitter, your mentor makes the trade, sends you the details and you must receive it. Then you act on it. Most often, you miss the move simply because of the time delay in this process. Imagine getting the message to buy long. By the time you get it, the trend reverses. In good faith, you buy long and quickly realize you're now in a 'hope and hold' situation. The move is over.

Frankly, as a trader, the last thing I'm thinking about when I'm looking to enter a position, is to send out a message. My focus is where it should be: on the trade itself. Be wary of traders who are not focusing on the trade at hand. Their concentration should not be on advising folks on trades in the moment; it needs to be on the trade at hand.

Secondly, and I stress this endlessly, you yourself should become the expert. It is you, who should learn how to read the technical indicators, make the assessments and determine the entry and exit points. As traders, you are not merely mechanics clicking the keys on others' whims. Be able to read the raw data and form your own determinations. It is actually not that difficult once you learn how. Imagine knowing this information and acting on it at will. Your money tree will always be in bloom.

Candlesticks are raw data. So are moving averages, stochastics and all the other input items that entail a trade. By relying on others - regardless of who they are - you are putting your faith and confidence in someone else's interpretation of what the markets are doing. Is this not the very reason you got into trading your own accounts? Did your financial guru not squander away your money already?

Recognize that traders who act on tips are likely an insecure breed with too much money, destined to lose it. Even if the tipster is correct, by the time you get the tip, it's history. In this day of the internet, everyone has essentially the same knowledge available. Learn to use it effectively and place the odds in your favor.

Tips are for waiters and cabbies, not to be played in the stock market.
