Market Tells: A Worthwhile Trading Resource


Every so often, I alert readers to services and resources that I have found helpful. I am not compensated for mentioning these; in fact, the mentions are never directly solicited. But if it's a resource that I use and find helpful, I'm happy to pass the word along.

Today's resource post focuses on Market Tells, the advisory service run by Rennie Yang. Market Tells is one of the few advisory services I know that follows markets intraday as well as end-of-day; the email alerts during the day are quite useful observations. Also tracked intraday is one of my favorite indicators, the Cumulative TICK (see above), as well as a variety of intraday internals. The charting section of the site includes a wide range of indicators updated daily, including program trading activity, volatility measures, longer-term cumulative TICK, and new highs/lows.

A unique feature is the Trend Catcher trading system, which alerts traders to trend days (those that are likely to close near their day's high or low prices) as they unfold. Trend Catcher signals are sent by email; I find them quite worthwhile.

When I mentioned to Rennie that I'd be featuring his site, he kindly agreed to provide TraderFeed readers with free access to the Market Tells site (not including email alerts, sorry!) until November 7th. To take advantage of the offer, here's the login information:

Are there other resources you find helpful to your trading? If so, feel free to make mention in the comment section to this post (please, no self-promotion). Thanks!

Dr. Steenbarger,

Thank you for setting up the trial at Market Tells (and for all the no BS work you put into the blog, it's greatly appreciated).

As for other resources (in English), I find Market Currents at Seeking Alpha help me understand what's going on throughout the day. The link is http://seekingalpha.com/news/market_currents?source=refreshed

I also like to keep an eye on the maps at http://finviz.com/map.ashx?t=sec (that you recommended in your blog a while ago).

Best trading,

Jorge

Dr. Brett,

Do you know of a way to chart the cumulative adj TICK in Esignal? I currently watch the TICK intraday but would like to break it down further via the cumulative you always talk about. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

B

Awesome! I've had Market Tells on a to-do list of services to check out. Thanks!

I tried the Decision Point trial but it wasn't for me. Nonetheless, thanks for that one too.
