This board is about “Timing the Trade" while using important Wyckoff factors and other ideas used by successful traders.

The Wyckoff methodogy has been around for nearly a century. There are many important concepts that were introduced in the early 20th century that can assist the speculator in making good trading decisions. There are also concepts that were introduced that IMO no longer have the relevance and importance that they did many years ago.

To assist in making the appropriate decision, successful traders and investors follow a five-step process.

1) Determine the trend and position of the market and then decide if they should be long, short or neutral, with an emphasis on being long the markets when it is appropriate.

2) Determine which stocks will be the market leaders in the coming cycle.

3) Determine which of these stocks offers the best potential to move the soonest, the furthest and the fastest.

4) Determine which stocks are most ready to move, those on the “springboard” as Wyckoff often advised.

5) Timing the speculation in the appropriate stocks when the market is oversold or overbought. When the market is oversold, buying stocks that meet all of the above criteria is suggested during or at the beginning of an uptrend move.

By following the abovementioned five steps in an orderly manner, traders can dramatically increase the likelihood of entering a speculative position during the mark up or mark down phase. It is during the mark up or mark down phase that the objective to “make the most in the least amount of time” can be realized.

It's important to recognize that there are a number of factors that I use in my trading that are not Wyckoff. Over the years I have found concepts advocated by Wyckoff that haven't worked very well for me. Additionally, I have added a number of other important factors that I believe are very important.

Many things have changed in the markets over the years. Many Wyckoff students don't believe that to be the case. I disagree with them and believe that dismissing ideas that no longer play an important role in the markets, as well as introducing new ideas into the trading process will only improve a traders performance.
