Trend Forecasting with Technical Analysis: Unleashing the Hidden Power of Intermarket Analysis to Beat the Market
Trend Forecasting with Technical Analysis explores the application of intermarket analysis, which analyzes the relationships between financial markets and their influences on each other. It examines the critical role that intermarket analysis plays in assisting traders to identify and anticipate changes in market direction in today’s globally interconnected financial markets.
The technical focus of this book’s presentation is on how intermarket analysis, through the application of neural networks, can be used to forecast moving averages, making them a leading rather than a lagging technical indicator.
Chapter 1 discusses the globalization of the financial markets and outlines some of the major factors that are responsible for the emergence of the global economy.Chapter 2 highlights the limitations of traditional technical analysis methods, particularly the emphasis on single-market analysis and the reliance upon lagging trend-following indicators.
Chapter 3 examines intermarket analysis as a logical extension of technical analysis and offers various ways that intermarket analysis can be used by traders to seize trading opportunities that other traders miss. Chapter 4 explains the strengths and weaknesses of traditional moving averages, and shows how trend forecasting, by using neural networks applied to intermarket data, outperforms trend following.
Chapter 5 describes VantagePoint’s market forecasting capabilities. This chapter also presents various market timing trading strategies utilizing predicted moving averages, which can be used by both day traders and position traders. Chapter 6 looks at the application of neural networks to intermarket analysis and briefly outlines the basics of neural networks and how they can benefit traders in today’s global markets.
Chapter 7 discusses the evolution of financial market analysis in the first decades of the 21st century. It suggests a comprehensive approach that I call “synergistic market analysis,” which combines technical, intermarket and fundamental data into one framework for the purpose of analysis and forecasting.
In summary, Trend Forecasting with Technical Analysis discusses the globalization of the world’s financial markets and the application of intermarket analysis in developing and implementing powerful trend forecasting and market timing trading strategies in the equity, options, derivative and futures markets.
