The Five Technologies
The Strategic Analysis Advanced Technical Research is institutional-strength technical research for the experienced trader. We have integrated 5 proprietary technologies and designed a simple web page for easy reference. Strategic Analysis can accommodate the individual risk profile of every trader’s approach to the markets. The Strategic Analysis research covers the most active symbols in Equities (Stocks)
Strategic Analysis includes four main technologies: Daily Strategy, Weekly Strategy, Monthly Strategy, & MTR.
The Daily, Weekly, & Monthly Strategies provide entry levels (Buy Stop) and (Sell Stop) with each section also including 4 Profit Levels, ABOVE will be in Blue as Pre-Defined Profit levels and BELOW in Red as Pre-Defined Profit Levels. RISK for each Strategy is always the difference between the Buy Stop and the Sell Stop.
The Daily Strategy
Data in the Daily Strategy (including MTR) is updated daily after the New York close, Intraday traders use the Daily Numbers
The Weekly Strategy
Data in the Weekly Strategy is updated on the last trading day of the week (Friday) after the New York close and is valid for the entire following week. We recommend that users new to Strategic Analysis start with the Weekly numbers. Swing or medium-term traders use these numbers.
The Monthly Strategy
Data in the Monthly Strategy is updated on the last trading day of the month and is valid for the entire month. Longer term trend followers use these numbers.
The MTR & IND
The MTR, or Major Trend Reversal, upon any successful penetration of this level, would keep you in that position anywhere from 6 weeks and up to 4 or even 5 months. The IND, or Indication, works together with the MTR to indicate what position should be taken (Buy or Sell) when the MTR is breached.
Key to the Report Symbols It is helpful to be viewing a report when looking at this key — you’ll find one later in this document
Implementing Strategic Analysis
In order to follow these instructions, it is helpful to be looking at one of the reports. Please see the sample report on the next page.
Begin by looking at the tables from bottom to top. Meaning, look at the Monthly Strategy “Buy Stop” & “Sell Stop” for the market segment you are trading, that is being published on the last trading day of every calendar month.
If the price should go, “bid” above the Monthly Strategy Buy Stop, you know that for the remainder of the month the market is bullish if it has gone through the monthly “Buy Stop” and trades above it.
The opposite is also true if it broke the “Sell Stop”, the market is bearish. This signal is valid for the entire MONTH, therefore a monthly signal is for longer term traders. Again RISK on the position, once taken, is the difference between the Buy Stop and the Sell Stop on that time frame.
The Weekly Strategy is published after the close of Friday’s trading. These signals are valid for the entire WEEK for intermediate swing traders.
The entry signal on the Weekly Strategy is the same as the Monthly Strategy, if the price goes above the Buy Stop or below the Sell Stop a position is open.
The RISK on the trade is the difference between the Buy Stop and the Sell Stop for that time frame. Once a position is open, the 4 Profit Levels are defined in the direction of the trade.
The Daily Strategy (Daily & MTR) is updated daily after New York close. In principle, if you have a Gap/Up or Down on any of the time frames Monthly, Weekly or Daily, it is strongly suggested to avoid the trade or alternatively reduce your exposure in order to maintain even risk management parameters.
You can reference each table’s “PPC” (previous price close) to determine at what level the market was when the table was produced.
Anyone new to Strategic Analysis should begin testing with the WEEKLY numbers.
Use the Monthly & MTR for additional support and decision making, but we highly recommend that new users STAY AWAY from using the DAILY numbers as these are for experienced Day Traders only.
Print your portfolio so that it will be on your desk at all times for quick reference. Highlight the Buy Stop/Sell Stop that you are following (Daily, Weekly, Monthly) so that you’ll quickly find your entry levels. Use another highlighter to highlight items (Symbols) that you are following.

Risk Management is the “Key to Success”
Risk Management is the key to success, no matter how small or how large your account size is, be it $50Million USD and no matter which Strategy one elects to trade. In applying strict “Risk Management” rule you keep a unified Risk Tolerance across the board, for all time frames, and you put yourself into a win-win position; which is in reverse relationship to volatility, and the key to your success.
Do remember that the #1 enemy of all traders is excessive trading and over-leveraging their account, instead of following a pre-set of rules, emotions take over and traders tend to make irrational decisions.
Three Strikes & Your Out! (Reversals)
One of the many advantages and unique features of the Strategic Analysis research is the predefined and well-contained risk parameters that are easy to follow. The maximum at risk in any trade guided by Daily, Weekly, or Monthly Strategy is the difference between the level at which you enter the position and the level at which Strategic Analysis suggests you reverse your position (Buy Stop/Sell Stop). If along trade is taken, Buy Stop triggered. Your stop on the trade is now the Sell Stop. (RISK = Buy Stop — Sell Stop.)
You will find that the position may reverse during your timeframe. If reversed, Strategic Analysis will normally become profitable in the second position. After the third reversal — Stay Out, or go flat. In this case, the market has not found direction and will simply continue to drift. Wait for the next time period’s signal. For day traders, this means waiting for the next Strategic Analysis database update. For weekly traders, this means waiting for the Friday closing report and preparing for new signals in the next week.
Frequently Asked Questions
The following are some of the most frequently asked questions by Strategic Analysis subscribers.
I May Have More Questions About the MTR _& IND
The MTR, or Major Trend Reversal, break upon any successful penetration would keep you in that position anywhere from 6 weeks up to 4 or even 5 months as the IND, or Indication, works together with the MTR to indicate what position should be taken (Buy or Sell) when the MTR is breached.
The technology that is used to determine the MTR utilizes the same principles that are used in programming guided missiles.
This technology tracks velocity, meaning the speed of the market as it moves from one place to another. The technology attempts to forecast at which price level each symbol would change its course of direction from Bullish to Bearish or conversely

STOP LOSS ORDERS DO NOT NECESSARILY LIMIT YOUR LOSS TO THE STOP PRICE BECAUSE STOP ORDERS, IF THE PRICE IS HIT, BECOME MARKET ORDERS AND, DEPENDING ON MARKET CONDITIONS, THE ACTUAL FILL PRICE CAN BE DIFFERENT FROM THE STOP PRICE. IF A MARKET REACHED ITS DAILY PRICE FLUCTUATION LIMIT, A “LIMIT MOVE”, IT MAY BE IMPOSSIBLE TO EXECUTE A STOP LOSS ORDER.
THE RESULTS SHOWN ARE BASED ON SIMULATED OR HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS THAT HAVE CERTAIN INHERENT LIMITATIONS. UNLIKE THE RESULTS SHOWN IN AN ACTUAL PERFORMANCE RECORD, THESE RESULTS DO NOT REPRESENT ACTUAL TRADING. ALSO, BECAUSE THESE TRADES HAVE NOT ACTUALLY BEEN EXECUTED, THESE RESULTS MAY HAVE UNDER. OR OVER-COMPENSATED FOR THE IMPACT, IF ANY, OF CERTAIN MARKET FACTORS, SUCH AS LACK OF LIQUIDITY. SIMULATED OR HYPOTHETICAL PROGRAMS, IN GENERAL, ARE ALSO SUBJECT TO THE FACT THAT THEY ARE DESIGNED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN.
