By Thom Hartle.

Anchored Momentum

A centered simple moving average can be used as a reference point when creating technical analysis indicators. Even though a centered simple moving average produces a plot much smoother than its related price plot, the centered moving average technique is generally ignored because it stops short by half of its period. However, some unique and effective momentum indicators can be anchored to a point on a centered simple moving average. Here are the benefits of anchored momentum.
By Rudy Stefenel.

What Is Risk?

There are many ways to view risk. Some measurements treat risk and reward alike; if a stock is outperforming the market to the upside, there is an implicit expectation that the stock may also outperform the market to the downside. This article introduces the concept of comparing how a stock performs during up movements relative to a benchmark and then, separately, measuring performance relative to downward movements by the benchmark.
By Gary Anderson.

Interview: Technical Analysis As A Statistical Process: Asoka Selvarajah Of Rabobank International

According to Asoka Selvarajah, markets do make sense ultimately, but not in a way that most people imagine. To understand the markets, according to Selvarajah, requires a dash of Pythagorean theory, a smidgen of Newtonian physics, and even some chaos. Selvarajah, who works for Rabobank International, one of the largest banks in the world and one of the few European banks with a triple-A rating, was interviewed by STOCKS & COMMODITIES Editor Thom Hartle via E-mail over a period of several weeks in January 1998, discussing systematic trading and development as well as trading overseas markets.

John Hill started out in the business of trading commodities in a most remarkable way when he managed to run $1,000 up to $80,000 in a matter of three months — and then managed to lose all but $5,000 in a single day. Some traders would hang up their charts after that, but Hill was determined to understand what he’d done wrong. It took years of study, but he figured it out. STOCKS & COMMODITIES Editor Thom Hartle interviewed Hill via telephone on April 23, 1998, asking him about Futures Truth, the publication he has produced since the 1970s; why novices could benefit from mechanical systems; and what details are important to fairly evaluate the performance of a system.
