A. The number is a measure of a stock or ETFs relative strength. The Dean’s List is our primary method for trading the market. But we NEVER use it by itself. We use the Dean’s List in combination with something we call the SIGN.
First requirement for a stock to be a Buy is for it to be on one of the Lists. It MUST be on one of my Lists. It doesn’t necessarily need to be near the top of the list. Many times, stocks that are forming the Blade of a Hockey Stick pattern is pulling back. When this is happening, the stocks usually move toward the middle or bottom of the List. Just remember that all stocks on the List are strong stocks. They wouldn’t be on the List if they weren’t.
The second thing we look form is a Pattern. There MUST be a Pattern. And the two patterns we use in The Professor’s Methodology are the Basic Hockey Stick Pattern and the Three Lows to a Bottom (TLB) or its opposite, the Three Highs to a Top. The final thing we MUST see before a stock becomes a buy is for all of the PT indicators to turn positive. The PT indicators consist of a 14 period DMI, a 10-20-0 MACD and a 21 period average on the P-volume.
A. Yes and the stocks on the Members Watch List are traded the same way. They must be on the List, have a pattern and have positive PT indicators. The component stocks are sent in by members.
A. The Honor Roll is generated from an algorithm that I previously used to trade gold. The algorithm, which was named Emeritus by a student, is basically a trend algorithm. So when Emeritus highlights a stock and places it on the Honor Roll, there is a good possibility that the stock could be ready to trend.
The database for the Honor Roll is the same database used to generate the Member’s Watch List. In other words, the algorithm only looks at stocks that were submitted by subscribers. there’s more information at The Honor Roll strategy
A. I have developed algorithms (scans) over the last 2 decades using AIQ TradingExpert Pro software. These are my proprietary scans. Subscribers receive the update to my Dean’s List scan each weekday. It is generated in the evening after hours on that day’s data.
A. Ok, I don’t provide a lot of charts because I want my students to find the patterns themselves. I have found that if I just give students a chart, they don’t learn as much as when I tell them something, and then ask them to find it themselves.
A. No track record, this is not a picking service. This is teaching service. I want my students to learn why a stocks move, and not just provide picks. There are too many sites out there that just provide picks. The site provides two lists of stocks and ETFs with strong relative strength. Students then use the Lists, together with two pattern (Hockey Stick or Three Lows to a Bottoms) and three indicators to select candidates for purchase.
A. I have a short video below that explains it all.
A. When a single Hockey Stick Pattern is repeated, it starts to form a series of waves. Taken together, the waves start to form trends. By analyzing wave counts traders can determine the direction and length of the primary trend. Knowing the direction of the primary trend and trading in that direction is the key to Making Money. Remember: The Trend is your friend. There’s a whole page on this (Elliott Waves) at the link below.
A. Each night, I look at the Dean’s List to find the top ranked stocks or ETFs. These ETFs are always among the strongest ETFs in the market. I have found that it never pays to trade junk. I always look for strength, and the Dean’s List is where I go to look for strong stocks or ETFs. Then, once I have identified a few strong candidates, I look at each of my three Position Trading (PT) indicators on the stock or ETF
- The fast MACD
- Positive Volume
A. The Rifle Trade is a strategy I’ve developed using my three indicators in a pullback situation, and the indicators are used over 2 different time frames. It’s not part of my Cum Laude service, and I teach this strategy as a Separate class.
A. The Coach is simply an indicator that I use to measure institutional money flow. It tells me what the Big Boys are doing. I believe it is so important that I include it in my cockpit indicators. When it is positive, institutional money is flowing into the market. When it’s negative, it’s one of the first danger signals that the institutions are starting to sell stocks.
A. Emeritus is a Trend algorithm that I originally developed to trade gold. When Emeritus highlights a stock, it is placed on the Honor Roll because there is a high probability that the stock could be ready to trend.
The database for Emeritus is the same database used to generate the Member’s Watch List. In other words, the algorithm only looks at stocks submitted by subscribers.
The way I trade Honor Roll stocks is by watching to see how they open the morning after being highlighted. Because the algorithm is designed to identify stocks that are entering a trend mode, I want to see them moving up… showing me that the trend is continuing..
I usually purchase stocks from the Honor Roll by using Buy Stops. I do this in two ways:
The first is by waiting for the first 15-minute bar to print. Then once I know the high of this bar, I place a Buy Stop one tick above the high of the first 15 min bar.
The second way I trade them is by placing a Buy Stop one tick above the previous day’s high. In other words, I’m looking for signs that the trend is continuing.
As with all of the other criteria in the Professor’s Methodology, before a stock is considered for purchase, it needs to satisfy all of criteria of the SIGN. The SIGN is just what it says: a sign. It is a decision aid and consists of three elements:
First of all, the stock must be on the Member’s Watch List. Then it must have a Pattern. I always need to see a Pattern. The Pattern is the vehicle that will propel the stock higher. It also allows me to determine my target. No Pattern, NO trade. And finally, all of the PT indicators must turn positive.
In the beginning, I suggest that you actually make a SIGN with all three of the above conditions and post it near your trading screen. That way you will get in the habit of using a disciplined approach to your stock selection.
Remember what I always say in Class: Discipline is the key to successful trading. No discipline = loses.
Also, Honor Roll stocks are always candidates for Position Trades on the shorter-term bars. Many times I will take a small position when the indicators first turn positive on the 5s, 15s, or 60s. and then add to the position once the issue starts to move into the trend mode, or above my Buy Stop on the Daily Charts. This enables me to step into a position, and reduce overall risk.
After being highlighted and placed on the Honor Roll, the issue is usually removed the next day. However this does not mean that it is not a Buy candidate. Many times after a stock is identified, it takes a few days before it starts to move up. What happens is that the algorithm is triggered by the early move, but on the day it is considered for purchase, the stock pulls back to rest.
So if the Buy is not triggered that day, I just wait and place another Buy order the next day just above the high of the previous day’s high. I might have to do this for 3-4 days before the Buy order is triggered. I continue to do this as long as all of the PT indicators remain positive OR for a maximum of 5 days after the stock was highlighted.
Also, you might want to pay attention IF you see a stock making repeated appearances on the Honor Roll. It’s usually a sign that something could be happening with the stock.
Once the stock is purchased, I manage it on the Daily Charts using the PT indicators, and the Money Management techniques of the Professor’s Methodology. If the PT indicators turn negative, I sell the stock.
Q. How do I change my e-mail address for receiving updates?
A. Login to the One Minute Stock site here and on the Cum Laude Members Page, type your new email address in the e-mail box and click on submit.
A. Whenever there is a ‘small change’ in the A-D oscillator, I turn the cockpit light POS. A POS tells traders to be on the look out for a BIG MOVE in the Dow (>100 points) within the next 1-2 days. When there is no light (black) it means that there was not a small change in the oscillator. I define a small change as <10 points from one day to the next in the value of the oscillator..
