leading indicators? Not lagging - leading.
I believe that's what we call an oxymoron. An indicator that is based on past information and not lagging.... If there is one out there, I doubt you are going to find it here.
An oxymoron (plural oxymora or, more commonly, oxymorons) (noun) is a figure of speech that combines two normally contradictory terms.
Like moving averages, which can be used as leading[%above 50dma,...] but prefer as a lagging
And as leading , yes again ,major in price as a leading indicator;
looked at most everything , its one of the best .
Without giving away the compny store;
price tends to be flat SEPT, strong uptrends NOV-Apr15 or so.
Except in a bear narket;
which we are not in, .Lots of leading stuff like that
Some use RSI as a leading indicator, dont care to,
Time cycles and seasonal tendancies? I think that's what the previous poster was describing.
moving averages are not leading indicators, the MACD with a histogram is but not moving averages themselves. Go full STO all the way, gives the most freedom if you understand the calculation which is fairly simple
* Market Seasonal Tendencies (cycles)
* Intraday Market Tendencies
* Other Key Markets
* Key Economic Reports
* Key Regular Schedule Market Events
* Market Breadth Indices
* Insider Information (illegal)
DAX as a leading indicator?
