    Account churning to win likely... I have a pal that gets calls from his broker like this "your metals futures have a stochastic, we need to move you to something"... "HAVE A STOCHASTIC?" WTH is that? The guy on the phone can't even sound like he knows how to read a chart...
     
  3. From my perspective, any investor should use all the tools at their disposal to put the market edge in their corner. This includes having an understanding of both fundamental information and technical indicators. Fundamentals drive the long term prospects of a company; while technical indicators reflect short term momentum in the market (fear & greed). Traditional long-term investors can use technical indicators to help time their transactions to add additional alpha to their portfolio.

    A merged approach to screening for stocks allows investors to get the equities they want at the prices they want. The intent is not to churn accounts, but allow an investor to make smart selections with all the tools at their disposal.
