  • The question is not whether fundamental analysis or technical analysis works, rather it is "how and when do they work?" (Jeff deGraaf)
  • Understanding market-implied volatility is the key to bettering your trading performance. (Alex Jacobson)
  • The ability to market time individual stock sectors can boost overall investment returns dramatically. (Frank Barbera)
  • One way to approach investment opportunities in the biotech sector is not by chasing the big names, but by carefully researching second-tier players. (David Miller)
  • The major advantage of using seasonality is that it allows you to trade those periods when seasonal tendencies are consistent. (Phil Erlanger)
  • Given the cyclical nature of markets and the irrational behavior in the investment environment, the combination of technical and fundamental analyses can help you better identify potential trading opportunities. (Jeffrey Spotts)
  • The markets for European derivatives, and options in particular, present unique opportunities to diversify holdings, hedge positions, or gain leverage. (Timothy Corliss)
  • By following specific rules and methods, you can gain a better understanding of how volume interacts with price, and increase the accuracy of predicting future price patterns. (Tim Ord)
